Christa’s favorite fabrics are solids, and she stocks over 100 different Kona solids. In fact, her Charming Chevrons quilt (which hung at QuiltCon and was a recent blogger’s quilt festival viewer’s choice winner) is made entirely from Kona Solids. If you want to make a quilt like this one, Christa has a step-by-step quilt along with multiple tutorials to create this quilt – including tutorials for the straight line and pebble quilting! Kits are still available in several color options.
She’s just started a brand new free quilt along this week called String of Pearls which features Lizzy House’s Pearl Bracelets, along with solids. Kits are available for this quilt – what a perfect way to get the variety of colors of that Pearl Bracelet collection, with out having to buy big pieces. Although, if you are looking for Pearl Bracelet fabric yardage, Christa has a huge selection of that too, including fat quarter bundles.
PS: Christa also carries those nifty new Olfa Splash cutters!
A recent finish. I love this stripy binding using Anne Kelle’s Remix Bermuda stripes. Isn’t it a cheerful looking binding? Brings some sunshine for dreary January. And makes me want to go to Bermuda.
This quilt, with many other Remix prints, is a creation for American Quilting, a shop in Orem, Utah, where I make samples. They had a lot of random brights that weren’t moving and so we decided to throw together a happy-go-lucky, psychedelic little quilt, guaranteed to stimulate busy babies.
American Quilting has some other new baby quilts (that I did not make) available as well, in case the loud, bright look is not what you’re after. This cute turquoise, green, and gray quilt is called Eli.
The fabric for this little quilt is called Wee Woodland and came out from Moda last fall. I’ve always liked this collection and the shop still had a bunch of the fabric so we decided to do a simple baby quilt. This quilt is uber-easy – it lets the fabric do all the work! Which isn’t hard for these cute prints.
The kit for this quilt is available at American Quilting (801-802-7841) for $24 and includes everything except the backing fabric. 1 1/4 is required for the back. The quilt finishes at 42″ square.
Also finally available: the Soul Blossom Quilt kits. The finished quilt measures 67.5″ x 82″. The kits cost $88 and include everything except the backing yardage. The back requires 4 yards and there is yardage available at the shop. The pattern is included with the kit.
I am still finishing the pattern to sell and plan to have it listed by Monday. I have to tweak it from the one included with the kits because I need to give yardage measurements for cutting your own. Stay tuned – almost there!
I will be working at American Quilting Saturday morning from 10:00-2:00. If you’re out shop-hopping, stop in and say hi!
In other totally unrelated news, my daughter made oatmeal butterscotch cookies two days ago and I think I managed to single-handedly consume half of them.
