Charmer Quilt with Dear Stella Fabrics

A couple of months ago, we had the opportunity to work with a gorgeous new Dear Stella fabric line called Love Letter. After many sketches and thoughts and emails, because over thinking is our forte, this perfectly simple and sweet quilt popped into our heads. Charmer! Finishing at 51″ x 63.5″, Charmer is a small throw quilt

Kismet Quilt Along: Pointy Units

One of the things that I think makes Kismet fun is that the block uses triangles that are different than your average half square triangle units, but most of the time that also means that it takes a little bit of thought for making those triangles. Hopefully this will make it easy for you; there are

Cotton + Steel = Mini Madness

Another day, another swap. Yes, I signed up for two in one month. No, I will not be doing that again. But it’s Cotton and Steeeeeeel! Weeeeee! Willpower is overrated. My partner for this swap was a high school math teacher. Quilting is definitely math-y! I remembered a project I had to do in geometry

Swapping Skillz

When I first got my partner assignment for the Alison Glass Mini Quilt Swap, I was pretty intimidated. My partner, as in the person I was making a quilt for, was Kim Johnson. Kim is phenomenal. She does crazy/complicated paper piecing and gorgeous machine quilting, and I know everyone is always happy to get some

Kismet

Kismet has been a wild ride. Kismet is a quilt that we designed featuring Andover Fabrics and Alison Glass’s new fabric line, Ex Libris. It needed to show off all the gorgeous fabrics, but in a quirky cool Eye Candy Quilts way. Alison Glass fabrics honestly are our wheel house. We can do quilts with these all

Carpe Noctem Mini Quilt

My Schnitzel and Boo Mini Quilt for swappin’ is complete! Done quilted, bound, labeled, and off to its new home. I’m calling it Carpe Noctem which translates to ‘seize the night’ in Latin. As I am a night person, and my partner is a night person, I was going for a midnight sun to illuminate our

Pop Clink Fizz Pillows

These little gems started with a bunch of fat quarters from Andover’s new line Bel Air by Lauren Marcella. Pretty cool, right? Now this is only half the line. The other half is turquoise and purple and black, much brighter than the elegant neutrals we were playing with. They tell me that this line’s inspiration was the

I Love My Photographer.

Because guys, look! This is our Mes Petits Choux quilt. I’m so in love. Isn’t this sculpture fantastic for our Fully Glazed quilts?! And you know what? That Fully Glazed with the wool applique is really hard to photograph. It just looks so flat. But this picture is sooo good! And the pink and brown Fully Glazed
