Quilted Zipper Pouch Tutorial

Today I’m going to show you my method of making a quilted zipper pouch. I’m sure there are plenty of tutorials out there, but this is what works best for me. This pouch features two fabrics on the outside, but you could make one with a single fabric, or even more pieced together, provided the final size is 9 x 6 inches. You’re really only …

PB&J Charm Squares Baby Quilt

I was looking for a quick project to make yesterday and decided on this baby quilt pattern by Oh Fransson – Charm Squares Baby Quilt. I had a 5-inch charm pack of the PB&J line by Basic Grey for Moda that I didn’t really have any plans for and this was the perfect quick project to use it in. The top came together surprising quickly …

Another 2wenty Thr3e pillow completed

I used scraps from the first pillow to make this one, pairing each print with a solid and cutting them into narrow rows. Random patchwork strips. From a fat eight pack of fabric, a little sure has gone a long way. I still have quite a bit of each print left over and all the pinks in the line as well. I’m debating if I …

2wenty Thr3e Pillow – Finished!

Yesterday was my scheduled day off, and the perfect day to stay inside and work at the machine. Our wind chills were hovering around -40 degrees most of the day! I finished piecing the back with leftover blocks from the front and added a complimentary solid color. It has an invisible zipper along the bottom, which I much prefer over envelope backs. The pillow ended …

Color Palette – Zinna

Zinna Color Palette I’ve been thinking a lot about color palettes and how we choose fabrics for our projects. I’ve created a Photoshop template that will let me highlight color palettes I find intriguing each week. I hope you enjoy and find some inspiration in them.  

2wenty Thr3e Pillows

I recently bought a new sectional for our home (after our other sectional wouldn’t fit through the door!). It’s a chocolate brown color, and huge – as in takes up most of our living room. But it gives us plenty of space for our family of five to sit and enjoy movie nights and spend time together. Every new couch needs some new pillows, right? …

Progress on Refracted quilt

See that, right there above, that’s the trimmings of 25 16-inch finished blocks for my refracted quilt. I used a couple days when Hannah was at daycare and I didn’t have to work until afternoon to finish piecing the blocks. And I just trimmed them up now – what a great feeling! All that’s left now is to cut the sashing for between the blocks …
