Fragments // Tagged

The weather outside is extremely frightful in NYC, so if there’s ever a time to crawl under a cozy quilt it’s definitely now! Luckily we have this cheerful quilt to brighten up our day.

We featured our new Fragments collection in the “Tagged” pattern from the book Growing Up Modern by Allison Harris (of the blog Cluck Cluck Sew).

Check out how happy and vivid this quilt came out!

Each Fragments square is set against our popular Polka Dot in Peony, making for some super fun contrast. We especially love the Pixels print for the binding!

And how could we not use the Cross Stitch print for the backing?

Fragments is popping up in stores now. Ask for it at your local quilt shop or look for it online! For another quilty idea, check out our tutorial from last week featuring this collection right here. We can’t wait to see what YOU make!

Free Pattern: Love in Chains Quilt

Valentine’s Day is next month, and we have the perfect quilt to whip up for the one who’s stolen your heart… our Love in Chains quilt!

Click HERE to download this free pattern.

Designed by Shelly Pagliai of Prairie Moon Quilts, this quilt was made using our lovely basics in a sea of pinks and reds. The gang’s all here: Net, Calico, Confetti Dots, Mini Confetti, and Sunburst Stripes.

We love the asymmetric design, adorable patchwork, and heart appliqué! Set against our neutral Confetti Dot in Gray, it gives the perfect amount of texture without overpowering the rest of the quilt.

Not to mention… check out Shelly’s gorgeous quilting!

Tutorial: Fragments Crossed from May Chappell

We have a special guest on the DS blog today – Lee from the blog May Chappell! She’s sharing a super fun tutorial for a quilted wall hanging using Fragments, which is hitting stores now. Lee incorporated some gorgeous cross stitching into the main print from the collection, appropriately-named Cross Stitch, and we love the effect! Read on to find out how she made it.


Hi there! I’m Lee and I blog over at www.MayChappell.com about my quilting, designing and teaching adventures. There’s lots of cool things to see including my popular Terrifc Tips Tuesday series. When I saw Fragments at Quilt Market, I immediately wanted to cross stitch all those little boxes! I instantly loved it. Sometimes dreams do come true. Here’s my Fragments Crossed wall hanging and little tutorial so you can make your own!!

Introducing Dress Me for the Playground by Wee Gallery!

Wee Gallery is back with a brand new collection this season – Dress Me for the Playground! The ever-popular Dress Me print has been reinvented, and those cute little critters are now swinging, roller skating, and hula-hooping the day away.

This time around, there are clothes ready-made for you! Instead of cutting out outfits from scrap fabric (like we did in this fun tutorial), you can simply use the adorable clothes provided. Cut them out, adhere to fusible fleece or flannel, and they’ll stick to the Dress Me fabric. Or cut out an outfit and stitch it permanently to Dress Me – this could be a simple project with a wee one!

Between sweet rompers, cowboy boots, and new sunnies, you really can’t go wrong with these. Little ones will have so much fun dressing up the Wee Gallery creatures (and you will too…)!

There are some other new additions, including new colors of the very-popular Hearts print!

Peach, Gold, Mint, and Navy were added this season – we love this palette! It works beautifully for boys or girls.

Also in the mix are these sweet bunnies and cats! We can’t wait to see some children’s garments made up in these.

Dress Me for the Playground will be hitting shops in February! Stay tuned for some adorable projects coming up!
