Modern quilt with Christmas ornaments and trees from Pieced Brain

Modern quilt with Christmas ornaments and trees

Get this free quilt pattern and make a modern quilt with Christmas ornaments and trees. Work with the fabrics I did or your favorite or Christmas fabrics!

I can’t believe I forgot to write a post about the quilt Deck the Halls that I designed for Dear Stella Fabrics. I worked with their collection Sparkle All the Way but it would look great with any of their Holiday fabric lines (I love “Baby it’s Cold Outside”. No, wait… so many options!).

Deck the Halls measures 53-1/2″ x 64″ – a perfect lap quilt size. The blocks are large ...

Fat quarter quilt patterns I love for Spring from Pieced Brain

Fat quarter quilt patterns I love for Spring

Gather some precuts to make these two fat quarter quilt patterns I love: a modern quilt and one with machine applique flowers to welcome Spring.

“Spring Dance” was just published in the Late Spring 2021 issue of Quilter’s World magazine, and also in the Fat-Quarter Friendly Quilts publication. These colors are so beautiful! They are from the Balboa collection by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics.

It measures 54″ x 70″ and the blocks finish at 12″ and 4″. It comes together super fast so it is a fun weekend project. If you are a beginner quilter, this pattern is ...

Fat Quarter Friendly Christmas Quilt Perfect for Using Up Holiday Scraps! 12 Makes of Christmas 2020 from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

For our third make of Christmas we are replaying our tutorial for Ribbon Candy, a modern, fat quarter friendly holiday quilt that is perfect for using up all your extra Christmas fabric or that holiday fat quarter bundle you just had to have.

About half of the quilt is strip pieced so it goes quickly, it really shows off large prints well and a neutral strip between every fabric means you can pack a lot of fabrics in while still giving the eye a place to rest.

Ribbon Candy was originally designed as part of the Stashin’ with Stephanie Club ...

Fat Quarter-Friendly Star Quilt with NO Y-Seams! Sparkle from Quilt Addicts Anonymous from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

I am in LOVE with this month’s Stashin’ with Stephanie design. I actually had something quite different in mind, but when I realized that my original idea would require massive amounts of background fabric, I made the switch to a medallion star design and the results are fantastic!

Sparkle is one big star, and while it looks stunning, it is actually pretty simple to put together. There are NO Y-seams in the quilt, and I break down how to sew your diamond blocks and turn them into easy to assemble wedges that make up the quilt top. You’re ...

Today’s tutorial is packed with lots of tips and tricks to make a fabulous log cabin that doesn’t get all wonky!

If you’ve ever made one and found that the outside strips just seem to be too long, then you’ll know exactly what I mean about wonky log cabins. With all the seams, it is super easy for your log cabin blocks to get off in size and for the strips to stretch out as you sew and press.

New Quilt Pattern: Fair and Square, A Scrap Quilt from Selvage Blog

Here's a link to the pattern in my Etsy shop: Fair and Square quilt pattern

Easy pattern for quilt – a scrappy quilter’s dream. from Pieced Brain

Easy pattern for quilt – a scrappy quilter’s dream.

Here is an easy pattern for quilt that beginners will love and scrappy quilters will swoon over! Make it with batiks as I designed it, or with your favorite fabrics.

Vintage Chic

I updated my pattern Vintage Chic using the Art Inspired: Music, Blue and Pink No. 2 collection by Anthology Fabrics and I think it is looking hot! The quilt measures 62-1/2″ x 76″ and the blocks finish at 12″. This is a good throw size quilt or lap quilt.

You only need to make flying geese – diagrams show how – and the center blocks are made of four ...

Making the Checks and Balances quilt your own from Stitch and Yarn

Pictured above is the original Checks and Balances quilt. I don't know what it is about this pattern but for me it inspires play – I'm constantly coming up with new options for it.

I think I've made five or six versions now and I decided that instead of continuing to make them myself, I'd show you the ideas, so you can use them with the pattern as the basis for your own quilts and I can get on to other designs!

The original Checks and Balances works in vertical columns of colour that are randomly placed ...

Choosing colours for a quilt from Stitch and Yarn

For as long as I can remember I've loved combining colours. As a consequence I tend to work very intuitively when selecting colours for quilt designs. If that's not you though, never fear! Choosing colours and combining them is a skill you can learn and there are so many tools out there to help you now.

Today we're going to choose colours for my Handloomed quilt pattern and I'm going to walk you through the steps to create your own perfect colour combination. Of course you can use this approach to combine colours for any quilt ...

Fast, Beginner-Friendly Fat Quarter Pattern Modern Rainbow Bargello – Reflection from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

The design for Reflection came to me in the middle of the night while feeding my newborn daughter. It was back when life was normal, and I thought a rainbow bargello would be a fantastic way to highlight the beautiful color transitions in Midsommar by Pippa Shaw for Figo.

Now that we are all stuck indoors for the foreseeable future, I feel like a bright rainbow quilt is the perfect antidote to the blues that can come with social distancing. And since it is a quick project, you can snuggle under it and feel better soon when it is done ...

Catty Corner is good to go! from Stitch and Yarn

Finally, I have another pattern out in the world! My Catty Corner quilt pattern is available as a pdf download over on my Etsy store now.

It feels like a lifetime ago now, but in early 2017 I travelled to Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) on an Ace Camp – what an adventure! Of course, given it was largely a textile trip, I came back with fabrics, specifically shweshwe. Originally shweshwe was only available in indigo – the patterns created with a method of acid discharge – but now it's available in all the colours of the rainbow.

I had seen very few quilts ...

Strip Pieced Diamond Quilt with NO Y-Seams! Fast, Fat Quarter Quilt Lily Field from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

It’s Stashin’ with Stephanie time again where we take a fat quarter bundle and make a new fast, fun, scrappy quilt design with it.

This month we are working with Meriwether from the Art Gallery Fabric Studio. The soft pink and peach florals paired with deep teals, greens and browns really make the star design pop. Plus, who wouldn’t want to work with flowers on a gloomy winter day?

As you’ll see in the video, the design looks a lot harder than it is. We start with basic strip piecing, then cover how to cut equilateral triangles ...

Time to let go a little – a call for pattern testers from Stitch and Yarn

If you've been following along on Instagram this year, you'll know that I was out of action for large chunks of it due to a back injury – an injury that was partly caused by a quilting marathon.

Naturally this has me reassessing things for 2020 and instead of trying to make all the quilts myself, I'm putting the call out for pattern testers.

In the video I give you in depth instructions on how to make super accurate half square triangles that ...

Blue Giant cushion kits – how to go into production without going into production... from Stitch and Yarn

I've spent a long time trying to avoid going into production on any of my patterns. It's not that I mind making the pieces again – especially if I can give them a new twist, or take a slightly different approach – it's that I mind making them over and over and over again. My favourite part of the process is really the designing after all.

So, when the pile of jeans for upcycling was starting to look a little threatening, I decided a kit for the Blue Giant cushion might be worth exploring. That way you can all ...
