The World’s Most Informal QAL

Starting today, I will be making the Cleo Quilt Pattern and sharing advice, tips, process, etc. while I make my quilt. If you would like to join me, jump in at any time! All of the information will be posted on my Instagram account - mostly in my stories but I will post progress in my feed so make sure you are following me.


The Cleo Quilt, Rainbow Version - Kitchen Table Quilting


I will be using a combination of scraps and yardage to make my quilt (actually, quilts - I will be making a version with prints and one with solids) since I am both scrapbusting and stashbusting.

There isn’t a schedule and there are no prizes, but there will be lots of useful info and it will be a lot of fun!


If you would like to join in, you can pick up a copy of the Cleo Quilt Pattern in the shop.


The Taylor Quilt - Pattern Testers' Quilts

It's time to share my pattern testers quilts! I have a really solid list of testers that I email every time I need help and I was overwhelmed by the number of people who were interested in testing the Taylor Quilt. Having so many different testers is a lot of fun because there is so much variety.

The Taylor Quilt - Baby Size

I made a baby quilt! They happen rarely lately, but they are still my favorite. One of my friends is expecting a baby boy and I needed a quick project, so I put this together last weekend.

My original plan had been to use various shades of blue. When I was looking through my backing stash to see if I had a good blue option, I found this super sweet print (at the bottom of the stack in the photo below) and decided to use it as color inspiration.


The Taylor Quilt - Tula Pink Version

A while back, I made this quilt using a fat quarter bundle of Tula Pink True Colors prints. Since I had way more fat quarters than I needed, I had quite a bit of fabric leftover and it was just what I needed to make a super fun, bright version of my new Taylor Quilt Pattern.

Because I was using scraps, I did have to make a few adjustments - notice there are a couple of places where I subbed in solids and a couple where I made the blocks a little scrappier - but it worked out ok. Tula Pink's fabrics always pack a lot of punch and I love how bright and happy they are here.

The Taylor Quilt Pattern

I have a new pattern to share with you today! All of my patterns are named after someone of significance in my life. At some point I will go through and write up an explanation of where each name comes from, but this one is easy to explain: Taylor is my maiden name.

I have a little bit of a complicated relationship with the name since my parents divorced when I was a teenager (long story) and I was happy to trade it out for husband's last name when I got married. But the name is still part of who I am and it felt meaningful to be able to use it here.
