Spring Quilt Market 2016 – Salt Lake City

This upcoming weekend is Quilt Market! Quilt Market is a twice-yearly event for businesses in the fabric industry – people travel from all over the world to see the latest fabric collections, patterns, books, and sewing and quilting machines. This spring, Quilt Market will be in Salt Lake City, May 20-22.

The day before the show begins, there’s a day-long series of lectures called Schoolhouse. We’ll be hosting two Schoolhouse sessions, so make sure to stop by ours on Thursday in room 253 B!

We’ll have lots of fun new stuff to show you in our booth, so make sure to stop by and say hello! We’re Booth 231.

If you’d like to follow along with all the fun, we’ll be posting lots of updates on our social media sites.

See you in Salt Lake City!

Free Pattern // Norton the Narwhal

What could be cuter than a narwhal made out of our Life Aquatic collection? Honestly, we can’t really think of anything… Lucky for us, Melissa Lunden designed an adorable narwhal plushy, and we’re sharing the *free pattern* with you today!

Meet Norton the Narwhal. This friendly fellow has been patterned into two seaworthy sizes, and we can’t decide which we prefer. The larger version measures in at approximately 9.5″ and the mini at approximately 6″. Many thanks to our friend Shelly Pagliai for stitching these sweeties up!

We had to have Norton made in each of the saturated Starfish prints from Life Aquatic. Check out the these cute minis below!

Head to our Projects page to download Norton the Narwhal, and find Life Aquatic in shops now!

Now Shipping // Foxtail Forest by Rae Ritchie

You’re invited to discover a whimsical retreat of celebrating creatures and lush forest finds. Enter a magical world beyond the brush with Rae Ritchie’s new collection, Foxtail Forest!

We are so happy to announce that Foxtail Forest is shipping to stores this week, and we can’t wait to see what you make with it!

Here’s a word from Rae about her inspiration behind the collection.

/// Some of my earliest memories as a child were of my father reading to me. My all-time favorites were the stories involving magical animals that could walk, talk and go on adventures just like us.

Many of those memories inspired my newest collection Foxtail Forest, along with a trip to the Cascade Mountains, outside Seattle, taken several years ago. The beauty of the ferns, fungi and mosses we saw still enter my dreams from time to time!

On our trip, my husband and I planned to book a treehouse hotel to stay in, but as you can imagine, there was quite a waiting list. Lucky for the animals in Foxtail Forest, I can draw as many treehouse as I please! We hope you enjoy sewing with our furry friends, ferns and fungi! \\\

Foxtail Forest is hitting shops this month…

What will you make?!

Wildwood // Molehills Quilt

We’ve long admired Latifah Saafir‘s Molehills quilt pattern. Not only is the layout unique with its layered, curved piecing, but it also allows for both large- and small-scale prints to shine. We knew it was a perfect match for our Wildwood collection!

How gorgeous does this quilt look on the streets of SoHo? The saturated colors from Wildwood glow, while the neutral grey and khaki keep it grounded. We can’t help but love that pop of plum, as well!

The Midnight Forest print made a stunning backing and binding choice… Swoon!

Many thanks to Kristi of Kristi’s Quilting for stitching this up. We are over the moon for her quilting! Take a look at some close ups below.

Find the Molehills pattern here, and you can find Wildwood in stores now!
