Creating Knitted Texture with Quilting! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

This month’s Stashin’ with Stephanie quilt design, Cables, was inspired by my other crafting love … knitting. Since the design resembles a knitted cable pattern, I thought it was only appropriate that I carry the knitting theme through to the quilting as well.

I created a 1-inch square “V” stitch to mimic the look of the stockinette knitting stitch, where all the knit stitches are on the right side and all the purl bumps are on the wrong side.

This is a very easy stitch to master and it doesn’t matter if they are all perfect, because in the ...

My love of knitting and quilting cross paths with Cables! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

It’s Stashin’ with Stephanie time again! This month’s new fat quarter friendly pattern is inspired by this month’s featured fabric, Delilah by Esther Fallon Lau for Clothworks.

Cables was inspired by my love of knitting and fear of knitting cables. The classic stitch pattern look of crossing yarns is created in quilt form through careful placement of fabrics according to color value, so it is a great pattern for mixing low volume and dark prints.

The majority of the quilt is strip-pieced, making it a fast project. I got my lap-sized version done from start to finish ...

Big Star with NO Matching Points! Twinkle with NEW Kits! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Twinkle is one of my favorite patterns in my best-selling book Fat Quarter Workshop. It is a large scale block that features two colliding stars.

The design of the block makes it great for fabric collections that have a lot of low volume neutrals that don’t offer a lot of value contrast with the background. We use them in the center of the block and the darker fabrics as the star points to clearly define the block and all all the fabrics to shine.

The original fabric in the book quilt is long gone, but we thought Festive Fauna ...
