Sunrise Katie Quilt - Kitchen Table Quilting
I have had a stack of solids pulled for a sunrise (sunset?) colored quilt for a little while and I am so glad that I finally got a chance to use it.

Sunrise Katie Quilt - Kitchen Table Quilting

This was made using my new Katie Quilt pattern. I wanted to show how versatile the pattern is - it can look so different based on your fabric selections. I started with the darkest, bluest purples in the middle, and then moved outward in rainbow order. These are some of my favorite colors, this project was a blast!

Choosing Fabrics for Your Quilt

When I first started quilting, choosing fabrics was the scariest part about the process. It seemed impossible to imagine what a stack of fabrics would look like when it was composed into a quilt - especially if I was ordering fabrics that I had never seen in person. Now it is my absolute favorite part of the process. Sometimes it is still difficult and sometimes I regret my choices, but I thought I would share a little bit about my process with you.

When I released my Katie Quilt pattern a few weeks ago, I thought it would be fun to make a new version using solids. I wanted to show the potential that the pattern has to be transformed into whatever I wanted.

(I will be sharing more photos of the finished quilt in the next week or two, as well as a full list of all of the solids that I used to make my quilt in case you want to make your own.)

Addition - A New Beginner Friendly Pattern

Addition Quilt Pattern - Kitchen Table Quilting
I have another new quilt pattern for you today - I know, there have been a lot of them lately, but I this will be the last for for a little while. This pattern is called Addition and it is 20% off for the rest of the week.

Addition Quilt Pattern - Kitchen Table Quilting

This pattern started out with the idea that I wanted to make a quilt that was a little more masculine. I have a couple of boys myself, and not all patterns feel boy-ish enough to me. But as you will see from my pattern testers' quilts, it works just as well with florals as it does with geometrics.

You might have noticed in the title of this post that this quilt is beginner friendly - it is great for beginners! The first steps are strip pieced, which might be a new concept to beginners, but there are lots of photos and instructions and I don't think that first time quilters would find it to be too difficult. There is also a tip to help keep everything lined up that will be useful for quilters of all skill levels.

The Mary Quilt - A New Pattern (on sale!)

The Mary Quilt Pattern - Kitchen Table Quilt
Another week, another new pattern! This is The Mary Quilt.

The Mary Quilt Pattern - Kitchen Table Quilt

Here are some details about the pattern:
  • The baby size version uses fat eighths and the lap and twin size versions both use fat quarters!
  • It is great for experienced beginners - the most difficult part of the block is making flying geese, so if you are comfortable with that step (or you are wanting to get comfortable with flying geese) this is a great project for you.
  • The pattern can look drastically different based on fabric choices - see the pattern testers's quilts below. Also, this week I am working on making another Mary Quilt for myself and I will be posting progress shots on Instagram all week so make sure to follow along!
  • The pattern has instructions for baby, lap, and twin size versions.

September Giant Block Tutorial

September Giant Block 24 inch quilt
September Giant Block Tutorial Cover2

Welcome to the September Giant Block Tutorial. This is a traditional block called Raspberry Cheesecake that I have giant-ized.

I have recently been really drawn toward star blocks (thus my most recent pattern) and I liked the effect that this one has once it is made nice and big. It is a little more complicated than some of the other blocks in the series (it involves flying geese and half square triangles) but it isn't anything too crazy.
