Color Inspirations Club for 2015!

November 18, 2014

This morning I finally listed all my patterns on Craftsy!  I have 6 new patterns to coordinate with next year’s Color Inspirations Club with RJR’s Cotton Supreme Solids.    For those of you who don’t know, I created a solids club for RJR fabrics called the Color Inspirations Club.  Each month I choose 10 coordinating solids based on an inspiration.  There are NO REPEATS throughout the year.  So you aren’t stuck with 4 of the same blue fabric.  This is a great way to increase your solids stash!  By the end of the year you will have 120 different solids!  Hopefully, you are using them up as the year goes on.   All six of the new patterns use 10 fat quarters and then some amount of background fabric to create the quilt top.  This means you can use ANY Color Inspirations Club month to make whichever pattern you choose!  There are varying sizes from small to Queen in the..

Color Inspirations Club – Me on the Quilt Show !

Here’s a good laugh for you!  Rob Appell (who makes some seriously amazing quilts, by the way) interviewed me at Quilt Market this past May about my Color Inspirations Club that I put together for RJR Fabrics for their Cotton Supreme Solids. The club is a great way for shop owners to start adding solids to their inventory without a giant financial investment.  It’s also a great way to start your solids stash!  Each month I chose 10 solids in an inspired bundle.  There are NO REPEATS throughout the year!  At the end of 12 months, you will have 120 new solids in your stash!  And they are all nicely bundled up for you in color coordinated sets and ready to turn into a project or you can mix them up any way you like! I’m putting together the Color Inspirations Club again for 2015!  Make sure your local quilt shop knows to order it from their RJR representative!  I’m..

NEW Quilt Pattern – Off the Air!

July 16, 2014

 Remember back in the day when television stations weren’t 24/7?  We used to have a black and white TV with a dial.  I would act as my parent’s “remote” and go turn the dials for them until we found something to watch.  I’m not sure if the fuzzy TV was the inspiration or the final quilt just looks like it to me.  But anyway, that is my two cents about the name Off the Air. I’ve made a few versions of this quilt pattern already.  I had the idea first to use some Architextures charm packs.  I really love the way it turned out!  I started it at the very first Camp Stitchalot a few years ago.  Jeni Baker helped me arrange all the blocks at like 2 a.m.  We may have also eaten a whole ton of Chicago Mixpopcorn that night. My long arm quilter Kathy Koch created this awesome topographic quilting pattern to match the fabric!  I love..
