New Quilt Patterns!

Posted on May 12th, by Amy in finished quilt, My Fabric, pattern. 83 comments

It feels like it’s been a marathon of sewing for the last two months, but I’m excited to finally share my new patterns with you before I head off to Market!

I made these in my new fabric line – Modern Neutrals, which will be in stores in October 2014, until then – be creative! I had some help getting everything done from Mary, Melissa, Trish and Vicki – thank you ladies, I would be less sane without your help. ;)

I have patterns available for pre-order, or PDF patterns ready to go! Follow the links for details :

Up first is Soiree –

This graphic block is made from a Layer Cake, and really shows off all the prints in the collection – plus it’s super fast!

Finished quilt : 54″x72″

Pieced by:  Trish

Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe

Posted on September 20th, by Amy in books, pattern. 4 comments

Hi friends! This may be old news to some of you, but I have a quilt in Martingale’s latest compilation book Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe. There are 19 quilts in this one book, each from a blogger in our own community!

See that one on the top left? That’s mine! It’s called Jigsaw, and made without blocks – just cut and sew the quilt top.  I’m really excited for the advance copies to arrive, all the projects are fantastic, and there’s a few I’d like to make myself!

This quilt is super fun and simple to make, in any color scheme! I’m excited to see it made by some of you.  I made it in a 50″ square but instructions are included for a twin size too, and from there … Read More »



Burst of Spring Quilt & Pattern

Posted on May 7th, by Amy in finished quilt, pattern. 13 comments

I’ve been teasing you with progress pictures of this quilt for the last month, and I’m so happy to finally have a finished quilt to show you!

The quilt is made with Spring Promise by Ana Davis for Blend Fabrics – which is shipping now!

I love the soft colors, and simple piecing in the blocks. This pattern is a great intro to flying geese, I included lots of illustrations so even the newest quilter can be proud of them.

The quilt measures 45″ x 54″ – in the pattern, I’ve included six size options and four block sizes.

The pattern is available on Craftsy, and Meylah

I loved making this quilt, so much, I’m working on it again!  Hopefully I’ll have more to share next week, … Read More »

Spinning Pinwheels Quilt Pattern

Posted on November 18th, by Amy in pattern. 9 comments

Wow it’s been a slow week here!  I’ve been getting this pattern ready to sell and taking care of a few other details for The Sewing Summit, along with a cold in the house (4 kids – need I say more?) my time has been stretched.

I shared this quilt for Blogger’s Quilt Festival, and have pulled together all the details and double checked my math before releasing the pattern.  And so I am pleased to tell you that it is available in the shop, for your immediate download upon purchase!  I love the immediate download feature….so simple!  Anyway, this quilt will be fabulous in your favorite prints or solids – imagine a gradiation of solids – pretty!

I’m still piecing two quilt tops, and I’m thinking about table runners for Christmas presents.  Have a great resource?  I’d … Read More »


Balanced Connections Quilt & Pattern

Posted on July 22nd, by Amy in finished quilt, pattern. 30 comments

Hi friends ~  I’ve had a full few days, getting this pattern ready, de-stashing, and upgrading my blog!  What do you think?   I’m really excited to learn more about this blog and all that it can do.  I am also excited to show you my Balanced Connections quilt, I really love this design!

It’s a little hard to see in this picture, but the binding on the right, that’s my favorite part.  I pieced one strip of each of the colors into the binding – the little bits of color are just what it needed!  The throw finishes at 60″x72″ – officially my favorite size quilt.

Ella was “helping” me, and was popping her foot in when possible…I just love how the quilting shows up in this photo, and … Read More »

Simple Times Quilt Pattern

Posted on May 10th, by Amy in finished quilt, give away, pattern. 102 comments

Hi there!  Another finish for me – I hope you enjoy seeing another new quilt :)

I’m setting on a new path, I hope you will join me!  I have a pattern to offer you and I hope to have more in the coming months too.  This is a quilt that I originally designed to use my scraps from another project.  I call it Simple Times – 

This is a small lap quilt, 52″ x 52″ and can be made with a layer cake (10″ squares) and charm pack (5″ squares) or yardage of your choice.  Instructions for cutting and piecing the quilt top are included for both.

I pieced this top with Oz fabrics, and I love the bright colors!  I had two friends test it, Amber did a scrappy version, and Heather made her’s in Blush.  I hope that you … Read More »
