Blogging the Belinda Quilt: Selecting Fabrics

We’re coming up on a year since we launched our digital quilt pattern line, and I wanted to spend some time revisiting one of my favorites, the Belinda giant hexagon quilt. This pattern was originally designed as a layer cake quilt, using all 42 10″ squares to make the giant hexagons.  What I love about it, though, is that you’re not tied to a layer cake to make the quilt; Lynn and I have both recently used fat...

In My Neighborhood – Row 2

This month’s row design for the In My Neighborhood quilt along is provided by Uncle Paul’s Quilt Company out of Utah.  If you missed the first row, you can catch up rather quickly from Quilter Chic before you scoot over to this month’s design.

Working on the #Stargyle Quilt

We had a great time at the Sew Pro Convention in Chicago in September (you’ll hear more about it in episode 204 coming out tomorrow), and one the people we got to meet was Brenda Ratliff, the great mind behind Pink Castle Fabrics and the Just a Bit Frayed blog. For reference, she’s between the real Tula and the ad-Tula in this photo. No, not the Aquafina water bottle, the lovely lady behind it. Random aside: you can tell...
