Welcome back to Blog Friday with the Quilt Basket!
Our classes from our Winter 2015 Newsletter have begun and we are having a fabulous time! Friday Frenzy with Elaine started today with the Riviera Bag using Downton Abbey. Tomorrow we have our first Cutie Class of 2015 and the beginning of my paper piecing Forest Abstractions Block of the Month. Please take a look at our newsletter and see if you are interested in any of our classes, we still have space available.
Once again we are designing and creating new Cutie Collections and Patterns with the newest lines of fabric we receive. This week we used the Dear Stella Sunday Morning collection and are really excited about how this came out. The finished size of this beautiful quilt is 54” by 54”. We are currently writing up the pattern and hope to have this available for purchase soon.
I did mention last week my cousin Susanna, an architecture major, is working with the very modern Architextures and Doe lines by Robert Kaufman. Her brilliant mind is still working on perfecting the design for this graphic Cutie Pattern. I will be sure to share it with you once it is completed.
My mom, Cathy, used the Little Sleep Well pajama pattern by Favorite Little Things this week to make a really fun pair of pajamas for my cousin Dorrian. He is an avid reader and enjoys the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. We purchased this line of fabric knowing how much Dorrian would enjoy it and other kids his age. The pajama pants are the first of many ideas we have for this line as different gift ideas. I’m thinking a lunch box may be the next project completed, I’ll be sure to keep you updated as new ideas come to mind.
I look forward to sharing more with you next week
