January Culcita Box Unboxing

I had every intention of getting the January Culcita Box unboxing posted before as soon as it came in the mail, but I am incredibly behind. Also, the weather has been extra Oregon-y lately which means it has been dark and rainy and not awesome for taking photos.

I have been enjoying the emails and social media posts of your January Giant Blocks and I wanted to share mine before February sneaks up on us!

The Harper Quilt - New PDF Pattern

I am excited to introduce a new pattern today! When I originally made this quilt for my daughter, I wasn't sure if people would be interested in a quilt that involves curves so I was on the fence about writing a pattern. But after a few requests, I decided to go for it.

The pattern is now available on Craftsy and Etsy.

Large Polka Dot Harper Quilt

In addition to the 60" x 72" lap size, there are also instructions to make a 36" x 48" baby size version. Here are a few things that I think are great about this pattern:
  • In addition to having instructions to make the larger polka dots (like I did in my quilt), there are also instructions to make small polka dots!
  • This pattern is a great introduction into sewing curves if you are trying them out for the first time - the curves are not too severe and once you are done sewing the curve, you are done with the block so the quilt is actually pretty quick!
  • The pattern works well with scraps or yardage and the instructions allow you to choose however many different fabrics you want to use in your quilt.
  • The PDF download includes coloring sheets to help you plan your quilt.

2017 in Review

I know I am a little late to the game, but 2018 has started out busy and I wanted a little time to reflect on the past year.

Looking back at my year-in-review of 2016, I am reminded of how difficult that year was for me.  Pretty much the hardest year thus far. In contrast, 2017 was busy and happy and wonderful (mostly, of course there were ups and downs) but I would like to take a few minutes to review what happened over the past year.

Panache Quilt (and Scrap Giveaway)

Things around here have been busy. Not with sewing busy-ness, just life busy-ness, and it has been good but it meant that this quilt took FOREVER.

January Quilt Block Tutorial - Giant Block Tutorial Series

Welcome to the very first month in the Giant Block Tutorial Series. Each month I will be sharing a tutorial with information on some of your favorite quilt blocks - only extra big! This is a fun way to add an extra punch to your projects by:
- Giving traditional blocks a more modern look
- Showing off large scale prints
- Creating quick quilt projects
Some of the blocks will be more traditional and some more modern, some will be simpler and some are more complicated. For the January block, we are doing something simple. I am not sure if this block has a name, so I am just going to call it the January Block.
