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!

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!!
