Cotton Daisies Meet Beehive

Imagine my excitement when I learned Renee Nanneman (fabric designer for Andover and publisher for Need'lLove) chose my Cotton Daisies pattern to create this beautiful quilt using her new fabric line, Beehive. And...it's hanging in the Andover booth at Quilt Festival in Houston! Renee was so gracious to take a couple photos for me and i asked her to make sure she was in each picture!! She is the kindest person! Renee added a gold flange to her Cotton Daisies quilt, which adds such a nice touch! The quilting is gorgeous too! I can't take any credit for it...but whoever quilted this for Renee...it's wonderful! Here is my Cotton Daisies quilt. I literally pulled fabrics from my stash to make this and when i saw Renee's quilt, oh my gosh!! I loooove the softness of her Beehive fabrics! And the pattern cover...showing an alternative colorway...i think this quilt has soooo many color options! Looking for the pattern? I have it available in instant pdf's or mailed copies. Find them in My Etsy Shop And if you wait a bit, (Renee is at market right now) I bet she'll be offering some Cotton Daisies kits using her Beehive fabrics/pattern included! Thanks for stopping by! Learn, Share, Quilt! ~karen

Straight-Line Quilting Tutorial

Straight-line quilting is my favorite way to do my own quilting! It's so easy and has quite the striking finish! It's perfect for giving your quilt vintage-look, crinkly texture, and a hint of modern. Let's jump right in! . The quilt shown above is Mountain Horizon. The pattern can be found here. Materials needed: a basted quilt sandwich; you can find my pin basting tutorial here sewing machine & walking foot; a walking foot is EXTREMELY important to ensure that your quilt sandwich is evenly fed through your machine. With something as thick as a quilt, your feed dogs can't do all of the work themselves! thread- either 40w or 50w will do. I typically use 50w Gutermann thread. seam ripper quilting needle- a 90/14 needle works best for quilting, but you can also use a universal needle. However, if you notice that your stitches are skipping with a universal needle, then you should change your needle to a 90/14. sewing needle (to bury your threads) scissors hera marker (optional) having a long table helps. I'll sometimes move my sewing machine to the kitchen table so that my quilt can have a place to go as it's going through my machine :) . The first thing to do is to come up with a plan.

Deco Quilt Pattern- the Cover Quilt!

In case you missed it, the Deco Quilt pattern is now available! If you haven't already read my initial blog post about the two-color Deco quilt that I made, be sure to check that out here. You'll find my inspiration, pattern sizes fabric requirements and other details about Deco. Okay! My last Deco quilt to share with you is quite possibly my favorite one! This was my last Deco quilt to design....mostly because I was really held up by choosing colors! I initially thought that I had my colors nailed down, then I got about halfway through sewing all of my blocks and I HATED it. It was nothing like what I envisioned in my head! I loved all of the colors individually, but they did not work well together at all. I was in a little bit of a time crunch, so I was really bummed that I changed my mind. I actually wasted a whole day contemplating whether or not I should start over. In the end, the colors weren't sitting well with me, so I decided to start over! Thankfully, I used my Kona color chips to find other fabrics, and I ordered some fabrics online with expedited shipping. Once they arrived, I was still a little bit skeptical that it would turn out how I wanted, but I jumped in and hoped for the best! . From top to bottom, the fabrics are: Magnetism, Smoke, Bellini, Rose, Deep Rose, Sienna. This is how I used them in this quilt: Color 1: Sienna - 1/2 yard Color 2: Deep Rose - 1/3 yard Color 3: Rose - 3/4 yard Color 4: Bellini - 1/2 yard Color 5: Smoke - 1/2 yard Background: Art Gallery Fabrics Magnetism - 3.25 yards We have quilt kits to create this exact quilt in our shop! I sometimes like to stick with only one fabric manufacturer per quilt, especially if I know that it's going to be on the cover of a pattern. But since I originally thought that I was going to use all Art Gallery Fabrics for the quilt, I kind of had my heart set on using AGF Magnetism for the Background. When the AGF colors didn't work out and I had to make the switch to Kona, I decided to keep the Magnetism background because it just felt right. I would say a comparable Kona option would be Gotham Grey...but it's slightly more
