The Bloom Quilt

It’s been a long, exhausting month here at Stacey In Stitches. Not only did we buy a house and move, we also welcomed a new addition to the family! Nothing like cramming everything into two weeks *I’m not crazy I swear*
I haven’t had time or energy to unpack my sewing room, everything is just sitting in boxes, and I haven’t sewn a stitch since June 20th (I’m not counting or anything) so it’s nice to have a fantastic finish to share with everyone!

This is the Bloom Quilt that I designed back in January for Tula PInk’s Chipper Collection. I forgot to take actual pictures of it, I was a little crunched for time, but the man at the FedEx office was nice enough to hold it for me while I snapped some photos with my phone ( and then promptly packed it back up in the box)

Thankfully it is a kit available on Craftsy, and they take some GORGEOUS pictures, so I can share some of those! Woot!

I quilted this pretty heavily, but as you can see, the prints absorb it really well, so it creates a nice suprise when you get up close. I used all Aurifil 40wt for my quilting. A light lavender for the star points, a light teal for the chipmunk squares, and light mint for the background. I did an all-over triple paisley motif in the background that I really liked, and it worked well with the print. The chipmunks were all pebbles, and the star points were an orange peel motif. That took a little bit of thinking to avoid too much backtracking but I finally got it worked out. I especially LOVE the bias binding, I love bias striped binding!

I am super happy with how this quilt came out! You can get your own Bloom Kit from Craftsy by Clicking HERE.

Anemone Quilt Kit

I am pleased to announce that the second colorway of my Anemone Quilt is available now exclusively from Craft of Quilting! My friend Anne sent me a picture today of the paper catalogue in her mailbox. Which is super cool. How many people get the mailer? I didn’t even know I could! And it’s an entire page!

Thanks Anne!

The blue/orange colorway looks amazing in person. Of course in my addled brain I once again forgot to take my own photos (boo!) of the finished quilt, but I can assure everyone that it looks spectacular.

You can get both the wall quilt pattern and a pillow pattern. The pillow is super fun and will sew up in an evening. It makes a great gift!

p.s. I have been receiving a lot of questions as to the availability of the pattern itself. First off, let me thank you for your support and enthusiasm for this quilt, it blows me away! Windham Fabrics is the official distributor for this pattern, and they will be releasing it sometime in the future, though the format (paper or PDF) has yet to be determined. If you have questions or concerns regarding the pattern or quilt kits, kindly email Windham =)

Pattern Release- Down by the Sea

Thats right!

Down by the Sea is finally ready and available! Just in time too, as Tidal Lace, the collection this quilt features, is shipping to stores now! Kim @ I Adore Pattern did an amazing job with this line, and I absolutely love it.

The pattern includes a size chart for four different sizes from Crib to King, as well as optional yardage cutting for a separate border and background. Down by the Sea is beginner friendly and easy to put together! I also have a free tutorial for using the triangle scraps from the quilt to make some pretty throw pillows! You can also relive the fun of the Tidal Lace blog hop from that link.

Happy Stitching!

The Secret is out!

Fancy collection: Little Cabin Quilt and Sunshine Meadow Apron.

 

That’s right! That is MY quilt hanging in the Moda booth at quilt market!! Wheee!!!!

I recently got on doing work for a local fabric designer, Stephanie Carter. She owns Lily Ashbury Design Studio, and among other things, she designs fabrics for Moda.  She designs the quilts  and then I get to make a working pattern from her specs. Its a whole lot of fun for me, since this is what I went to school for too many years ago.

Fancy is the second collection I have had the privileged of working with. It is slated for release this fall, and I know that Fat Quarter Shop will be carrying it.  The main prints are absolutely stunning!! You can see the entire collection here on Moda’s website.
