EVERYBODY Needs a Quilt!
It's a fact. No matter the age, nothing feels like being wrapped in the love of a handmade quilt. Guys, gals and all our pals; everyone needs a quilt. We quilters have found our calling in life to see that wish come true and so we are ever on the hunt for fun new quilts to make and give. Today, I'd like to share four designs new to our shop (all available as kits) that fill needs for all ages. From baby to "big kids," stop in and have a look at what's fresh and new.
These two quilts speak, nay shout, to the teens and young at heart. Both feature new collections from Ruby Star Society in bold, trending hues. The electric, youthful energy vibrates through both designs. The Hannah Quilt
(rear, left) by Kitchen Table Quilting is an easy strip-pieced weekend project featuring Warp and Weft
woven cottons by Alexia Marcelle Abegg. This throw quilt finishes 60" x 72" and our kit includes enough of each fabric to cut an extra strip to piece a scrappy binding. I'm in love with the Modern Baptist Fan quilting by Dorene Johnson. It might be my new favorite!
The Fat Quarter Dash
(front, right) is a versatile pattern by Emily Dennis of Quilty Love that uses, you guessed it, fat quarters! This 60" x 70" throw quilt is perfect for showing off favorite novelty fabrics like these quirky fellas from the Little Darlings II
collection. Typewriters, roller skates and retro florals take me back to my own childhood. Lexi Lamb had the best time making this one and Dorene added cool, angular edge-to-edge quilting.
Both of these designs are perfect for beginning sewists to hone their skills or quick and easy quilts for the pros. We have patterns and kits for both in-store now!Read More
