Wishing Well Quilt Pattern

I've got a great download for you today!  Click below for a FREE pdf quilt pattern using my Wishing Well fabric collection for Free Spirit Fabric!

I designed this quilt, and Melissa at 100 Billion Stars sewed it right up!  I love the way it turned out!  I designed these fabrics over a year ago, and I still have a huge crush on gingham!

I also wanted to tell you about another awesome pattern, available in Pannay G's etsy shop!  Pannay is a Memphis girl who helped me out last year by getting a bunch of stuff ready for me to take to my schoolhouse.  She teaches quilting and sewing at Sew Memphis, my absolute favorite local shop.  Pannay was lightning fast, and the results were gorgeous!  She came up with all kinds of creative goodies.  This bag was my favorite!

And lucky for you guys, she sells this downloadable PDF pattern (and some other cute ones) right here in her shop!

Enjoy!

True Colors Blog Tour Round-Up

Oh, you guys!  Did you follow along and catch all of the great projects featured in the Free Spirit True Colors Blog Tour?  What an absolute delight to see how some of my favorite quilters and sewists handled my newest fabrics lines, True Colors and Wishing Well!

Katy Jones from I'm a Ginger Monkey never disappoints!  She has done some really cool things with my fabrics in the past, and I loved her work on this project!  I really love the romance of this photo!

The next stop (featuring my fabrics) was at Sew4Home, where they shared a tutorial for this adorable Bedside Caddy! I think I've said this before, but I love every single thing they do on that site!  The projects are always fabulous, and the photography just blows me away!  It's always a thrill to see how they work with my fabrics!

Diary of A Quilter was the next stop, and WOW, look at this!!  I loved this so much because when I was designing my True Colors line, I made a special effort to try and include as many different colors from the spectrum as possible.  I was so happy to see that Amy chose to use them in this way!  Plus, I've always loved projects featuring the Dresden circle!

Final stop... 100 Billion Stars!  Melissa is the best!  She works with me on almost all of my fabric collections, and creates lots of the samples I take to market.  She's so creative, and she always surprises me with her unique uses of my fabrics.  She also makes sure every quilt is cat-tested and approved!

I'm leaving for Alt Summit in gorgeous Salt Lake City in the morning!  It is such an inspiring and fun event-- I can't wait!  In addition to all of the regular Alt goodness, I'll get to spend time with two of my faves, Monica Lee and Khristian Howell-- these women always inspire and motivate me!  What a great way to start the new year! 

Wednesday night I'll be going to a dinner sponsored by Cricut-- I love them!  And I cannot wait to meet the teams from two of my favorite apps, Studio Design and Flipboard!  I'll give you a full report upon my return-- you know, after a little recovery time!

True Colors is my newest collection for Free Spirit Fabric!  I'm so excited about it, and as always I can't wait to see how you incorporate it into your sewing and quilting!  The collection runs the full spectrum of colors, and I've included lots of small-scale, allover prints that work well with all of my other fabric collections!  Heather, Joel, Anna Maria and I all contributed collections to the True Colors program.  We each interpreted the theme in our own ways, and I love how different and unique each collection is! 

In support of the new collections, Free Spirit has teamed up with both Creative Bug and Sew4Home!  I worked with Creative Bug--nicest people ever, I swear!-- to create a set of tutorials for no-sew party decor!

2013: The Year in Review

Wow, 2013, what a year! 

Every day I wake up and focus on what needs to be done that day.  It is rare that I stop to think about what has already been done, what I've already accomplished.  As I looked through my photos from 2013, I realized just how much got done while I was focusing on the day to day business.  Here's a look, in photos, of some of great things that happened in 2013!  Click on the images for descriptions!

I'm headed back to Alt Summit next week!  I can't wait!  And I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store.  I have BIG plans for this great new year!  I hope your new year is off to a fantastic start!!

Free Beechwood Park Quilt Pattern

Great news-- April from Prairie Grass Patterns has created the most gorgeous Beechwood Park quilt pattern for you guys!  I'm so happy to share this!  Click on the image below to download the pattern.

I LOVE April's work.  She has created several quilts and patterns using my fabrics in the past, and they have always been well received!   You guys probably remember this gorgeous quilt that she made with In My Room fabrics.  I love this one so much!  She offers the Leaflet pattern here in her shop.

For my Grand Hotel fabric collection, April made the "Big City" quilt pattern, variations of which ended up in two Quilt magazines!!   Here I am in front of the cover quilt for Simple Quilts and Sewing.
