At the Farm

Over the 4th of July weekend I got a chance to stop by the local farm. 

It is such a beautiful and peaceful place to visit.

You would expect some chickens at the farm but unfortunately there were none. The only chickens there were from my new pattern, Hen House.

The farm is famous for its fruits, vegetables and gorgeous flowers.

The colors at the farm reminded me of the colors from my new collection “Crystal Farm” that will be available in stores in October. Rich and vibrant, perfect for any project. Make sure you visit your local quilt stores and ask them to order it for you. We already have a great selection of patterns that you can choose from on our website. Click here to see them!

Some of these patterns could become your new favorite projects and you will find yourself wanting to make more than one.

Made in USA is a perfect example of a favorite. It is simple and easy to mix and match any of your scraps in blues and reds. I grabbed some left overs from “Blue Sky” and incorporated them into this quilt. I can’t wait to show you more about this project in my next blog.

Before my very eyes, my house transformed from a beach house to a farmhouse. To get some ideas of how you can add a farmhouse feel to your home, click here to see the “Crystal Farm” catalog.

Summerfield – Celebrating Nature

With the permission from the Virginia Quilt Museum, I had the privilege to create beautiful Fabric Silhouette blocks for the Laundry Basket Quilts “Summerfield” quilt.

Many of the blocks are inspired by one of the quilts in the museum.

The colors and images in this project reflect a love for nature.

This quilt has a way of drawing you in and making you want to plant your own summer field.

Just like a packet of seeds, we have wonderful packets of laser cut kits that include the background, all of the pieces, and a layout to grow splendid blocks. Click here to see our laser cut kits for Summerfield over at our online store.

After everything is fused in place, whether by machine…

…or by hand, you can add your own personal touch by choosing delicate stitches with beautiful colored threads.

You will be busy as a bee making beautiful blocks.

In no time at all your summer field will be in full bloom.

Don’t hesitate!  Try out one block and show us your love for flowers. To help you plant your garden, we have a coupon for 20% off all our Summerfield kits. Use code BLOOM at the checkout for your discount. This offer will expire on the 5th of July.

Blue Sky – Where Can You Find It?

I am so thankful for all the lovely comments and feedback about how much you love my new collection, Blue Sky. It makes me happy to see so many people already creating wonderful projects with these beautiful fabrics. 

All of you who follow my blog are awesome!  I’m so grateful for your quilting enthusiasm!

Recently, I had the pleasure of teaching at a retreat at Country Traditions, in Nebraska and saw firsthand all of the girls enjoying the Blue Sky collection of fabrics and patterns.

Some girls were so happy, they couldn’t stop smiling!

 I get a lot of questions through email, Facebook and Instagram about where to buy my fabrics and patterns.  Today I am sharing with you a list of stores that carry Blue Sky.

Everyone has enjoyed touching and feeling the fabrics of Blue Sky. Click here to open the list of quilt stores in the USA that are currently carrying this collection. Stop by your nearest store to see Blue Sky fabrics in person!

Don’t forget we have a free pattern available on our website. Please click here to download this pattern.

I can’t wait to show you what I am doing with my Blue Sky collection. It looks like there will be some late nights of sewing!
