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.

Fat Quarter Friendly Modern Christmas Quilt Perfect for Using Up Holiday Scraps! Ribbon Candy from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

For our fourth 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 ...

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 ...
