New Pattern - The Elena Quilt

Today I have a very exciting pattern to share with you - meet the Elena Quilt


The Elena Quilt Pattern - Kitchen Table Quilting


Let me give you a little background. Sometimes when I write a pattern, I know that it's not going to have wide appeal. I don't feel like every pattern has to be super popular because some designs just aren't going to be everyone's favorite. In the end, I only write patterns that I would want to make and sometimes those patterns aren't what everyone else is going to want to make. I'm okay with all of that.

New Fabric, New Project?

I am a big fan of Rifle Paper Co.'s designs. A few years ago when they started releasing fabric collections, I jumped right on board that train and have made lots of quilts using their prints (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here). Plus one in my next pattern that I haven't shared yet - more info coming next week!


Rifle Paper Co. Bon Voyage - Kitchen Table Quilting


This week sent me a box of their most recent collection, Bon Voyage. Like their other collections, it is gorgeous and will work with lots of different patterns so I have no clue what I'm going to do with it yet!

Their florals are always my favorites and I particularly love the light blue and coral florals in this collection. Plus the stripes are great.

I think I'm going to pick up one of these Tokyo art prints for my Japan-loving daughter (she already has their other Tokyo print) plus some stationary goods - I can never get enough pretty paper.

My Top 10 Favorite Scrap Projects

I love making scrap quilts so I thought it would be fun to put together a list of my top 10 favorites. It was actually really hard to narrow it down to just 10! 

A Scrappy Freya Quilt - Kitchen Table Quilting

There are a mix of free tutorials and patterns here. Some ar rainbow-y, some are value-based, some are just random. I know you probably thought the Plaid-ish Quilt would be number one, but don't worry, it's on the list!

 Let's start the countdown. 

Quilt Ideas - All is Well

All is Well is such a sweet collection - I love the soft, muted colors and the florals. While I normally favor bold, more saturated colors, I am finding myself more drawn to softer collections lately. It was fun to play around with them in some quilts.


The Frances Quilt Pattern - Kitchen Table Quilting


I tried to do a mix of older/new and more traditional/more modern patterns for this collection. My favorite prints in the collection is probably the plaid and it is available as a flannel print. What a great quilt backing!

Kaleidoscope Scrap Quilt Tutorial

In the past year, I think have had more emails asking for this template than just about anything. A few years ago I posted a tutorial for a Kaleidoscope quilt block that included a downloadable template. At some point in the past year, the download link stopped working and I didn't have the template saved anywhere!

This past week I finally sat down at re-wrote the tutorial and made a new template. The new tutorial is now all ready to go and can be downloaded (for free!) in my shop.
