Introducing the Into the Groove Quilt Pattern!

We are so very excited to introduce our Into the Groove quilt pattern! We love playing with shapes and layout, and a one-block quilt really does a lot of the design work for you when you experiment with different layouts. This quilt comes with two block sizes so it can work for a Fat Eighth bundle to make a twin size, or a layer cake precut bundle to make a lap size quilt. Fun backstory about this quilt: I was looking at Christa...

Check out the Main Squeeze Quilt Pattern!

We are happy to introduce our latest quilt pattern, Main Squeeze!  Lynn designed this precut friendly quilt to use a 10″ layer cake as setting triangles for the “squeeze” block.   When Pam got hold of it, she wanted to use a jelly roll for the center strips, so now you can get both versions in the same pattern! The cover quilt is Lynn’s original layer cake design with yardage of 3 different fabrics: The cover...

Blogging the Belinda Quilt: Piecing Hexagons

Welcome to the second week of the Blogging Belinda series! Last week I talked about selecting fabrics and a bit about how fabric value works in this quilt pattern. This week we’ll be looking at two ways to make pieced hexagons for the quilt using various shapes of scrap fabrics. One of the easiest to make using existing strips. For the sake of this sample, I used 2 1/2″ strips from fabrics that coordinated with my feature...
