Sneak Peak! from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

Today I'm sharing a little sneak peak of the quilt I made for the upcoming book "Did Someone Say Cake?" being released next month and available at Shop Martingale.

These are the gorgeous fabrics I used. The batik colors are so rich and vibrant and the prints are the perfect scale, in my opinion.

The fabric line is Malibu Batiks and it's currently available from a huge number of quilt shops, but don't wait to get your stash. I expect it will sell out quickly.
Here's the last sneak peak I can share until the book ...

Big News! My 1st Published pattern! from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

How would you react if you received an email from the Content Director at Martingale Publishing asking if you'd like to contribute a new quilt pattern for an upcoming book? 
 
Surprised? Shocked? Excited? Jaw dropped to the floor? All of these and more?
 
That was me in October 2020 when that email arrived in my inbox.  

I'm excited and humbled to announce that my first in print published pattern appears in Moda Bake Shop's Did Someone Say Cake? which arrives on book stands in February.
In the coming weeks, I'll be sharing a few sneak peaks ...

Oh Scrap QAL- Sashing and nine patches from Moda Lissa

hello, Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving break. I so enjoyed the break and can never have enough food or family time. Not all my crew was able to come home but we did have a houseful.

I re-arranged my sewing room and did some SECRET SEWING and vegged on the couch some, so it was a productive break.

The countdown to Christmas has begun both at home and at work. At work we are working on getting the rest of Holiday 2022 out to our salesteam. They will be making their rounds showing stores fabric lines shipping info next ...

Vintage Jenny | Easy Nine Patch from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Talk about a classic! Not only is the Nine Patch a quintessential quilter’s block, but this is one of the very first tutorials that Jenny Doan ever filmed! This incredibly simple but versatile block comes together in a stitch using 2.5″ strips of precut quilting fabric (Jelly Rolls) and some basic strip piecing. Using alternating color ways from your available strips, you’ll create a “strip set” using three strips of fabric. All that’s required after that is to cut the long strip sets into 2.5″ strips and stitch the fabrics back together to form nine ...

Surrounded QAL- Blocks from Moda Lissa

I have had so much fun sewing with you on this QAL.   I have enjoyed the pictures you have shared and so proud of those of you that have already completed your quilt top. Kuddos to you!!

This stack of completed quilt blocks looks like a hot mess but will turn into a wonderful keepsake. What is your favorite part of the quilt making process? I love picking out the fabrics, planning what the project is going to be and making a test block. Then I am very inpatient after that. I just can’t wait to  see each part ...

Surrounded QAL-Week 4- Center Blocks from Moda Lissa

 

 

I sew any chance I get. I quite often get up early so I can sew a little before work or stay up late to work on any project I am obsessed by. To be able to work on items in short little burst of time, I have a few processes to help keep me on task. Today I am going to share how I pieced the center section of the block together. The is somewhat a mindless, therapeutic method that lets me stop and start without loosing my place.

I shared with you that the main focus fabrics for ...

Surrounded QAL- Week 2- 4- patches from Moda Lissa

WEEK 2 of  #OhScrapChristmasQAL

Wednesday, October 13th- 4 patches

Whew! that was a lot of cutting, right?

Last week when I mentioned cutting the biggest pieces for the quilt out first, we are going to do the opposite when it comes to sewing. Begin strip piecing lights and darks together. Sew, Sew, Sew. This is somewhat mindless sewing while binge watching your favorite show or listening to an audible book. This part seems like it will never end but just keep sewing.

GENERAL TIP: I like setting my seams by pressing the strips right after I sew them. This seems ...

Time to Hustle – Quiltalong from Moda Lissa

On my “must make” list has always been a Christmas version of SURROUNDED from my book, OH, Scrap!

When I saw Hustle & Bustle by Basic Grey, I knew this fabric line was perfect for this project. There are enough big scale iconic fabrics to use for sashing and a nice range of greens and reds to be able to easily mix additional holiday lines.

The quilt takes a total of almost 10 yds which is what is in a Moda Fat Quarter bundle of 40 prints, but I wanted more variety so I added Christmas Morning by Lella Boutique and ...
