Refresh

Our new patterns start arriving from the printer shortly, so this week I will be previewing three new patterns.

I am going to start with one that I can’t take credit for!  My Mom designed this quilt, specifically for the wall in her sewing room.  When I saw it, I loved it and asked if we could publish it.  She agreed and I think you will like it!

If the front looks weird on your screen, this one might be better:

Mom made the version in the top left corner and she designed the quilt specifically to fit on a large wall in her sewing room (I will be posting pictures of the quilt and her sewing room later this week).  She wanted lots of light background to set off the blocks.  I think it’s the perfect combination of trendy and traditional – which you know I am so drawn to.

(Again – If the picture above looks weird on your screen, this one might be better.  Not sure why I am having trouble with this today!)

DSC_7552 adj best

The fabrics are from Bonnie and Camille’s  Modern Vintage line (from Moda fabrics).  When you see her sewing room, you will see why she chose these colors.

The quilt in the lower right corner of the pattern is my version.

The fabrics I chose are from my stash, with many of them from previous lines that I have designed and several from V and Co’s new line called Simply Style (for Moda fabrics.)  They were chosen to go with the sham fabric below.

The sham fabric is what I based my latest bedroom re-do on.  Remember the hot pink and yellow that I used to have?  (click here to see the bedroom post – skip to pictures at the end)   Joel may have compained once or twice about it being so girly.  When I found this sham fabric, I thought it might be the best of both worlds – a beautiful floral with colors that are more manly.

Notice how I chose not to make a king size quilt? (even though that is one of the 8 size options in the pattern).  I have several reasons for doing that.  The first is that my time for quilting is much more limited now that I have a toddler, so I have to be realistic about what I can all get done.  Secondly, I like how the solid green bed spread really frames the quilt.  I like it displayed on point for something a bit different and I like that is isn’t quite as busy as a totally pieced quilt.

    Your bedroom is stunning. Am anxious to see your Mom’s sewing room too. Love REFRESH and can’t wait to to see the other new patterns.

  6. Laura Williams says:

    Great pattern and love both versions. I’m taking my first color theory class and so impressed with your color choices for your new bedroom. And putting it on point on top of the whole cloth quilt is absolutely stunning. Did you quilt the whole cloth too?

    • I did not – I cheated and bought it already done at Herbergers. The king size was only $45 – so it was no-brainer! Whole-cloth quilts are a lot of work, especially king size with matching shams.

    I came from Pinterest to see this pattern – well done to you & your mom!! I also like your smaller quilt on point over the solid quilt. We just bought a king bed, and I have been dreading the daunting task of making it a quilt. Plus, I know I’ll want a new look in a year or two. I LOVE your idea!

  13. Cindy Martin says:

    I love the quilt design! It is stunning. I’m also curious about your walls. Are they stenciled or freehand painted?

  14. Mary ann says:

    Great new pattern! And your room looks so serene and restful.

  15. Cindy says:

    Love how you made a smaller on point quilt for your bed. Just bought a solid orange comforter for our bed and was going to make a bed runner. Think I will have to go through the stash and find material for a small quilt! Thanks for your great ideas!

  16. Bridget says:

    I love the turquoise, blue, and bright green… it is beautiful!

  17. Chris says:

    I like your mom’s idea….LOVE the solid white background, it makes the squares really show off. Your bedroom redo is beautiful!! Great idea to position your quilt on point, very nice!!

  18. Cecilia says:

    Beautiful quilt! I like the way you set the smaller quilt on point over the bedspread.

  19. Julie Delaney says:

    Love the idea for the top quilt on point! Just might do that for my king size bed that I just can’t find the right quilt for.. Then when I am tired of it,I can make a new one. I wish I could hire you to just come and give my house an “uplift” in color! I love everything you make!
