favorite holiday quilts

Monday, October 16, 2017

What better season for quilts than when it's cold outside? Not that Texas really gets cold... but I will say that quilts in our Utah ski condo with the wood burning stove during blizzards were the ultimate best. I love all of our quilts, but our holiday quilts have a special place in my heart. Maybe it's because winter is my favorite, and maybe it's because I'm always cold so the minky + flannel + brushed cotton backings are totally justified.

Even holiday quilts that come just for me to quilt are always so fun! I thought I would round up a few ideas in case anyone is looking for some inspiration.

marbleizing pumpkins

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

For my day off on Columbus Day, my sister came over with the idea of marbleizing pumpkins using nail polish (thanks pinterest). Soph could hardly contain her excitement, and was slightly ticked that we didn't let her put the nail polish in the water herself. We did let her choose her own colors and her pumpkins came out cuter than ours did! Not sure if we should classify this as a total pinterest fail, but you win some, you lose some. 

Ya'll, holidays with littles will always be better than without. 

loops + swirls

Monday, October 2, 2017

Ya'll, one of my absolute favorite quilting patterns right now is loops + swirls because of the texture it gives. It looks free motioned from a glance, or folded up, or all pooled up on your couch cuddling your loves. There's something about the motion of it that softens up quilt tops beautifully, especially if your quilt top has a lot of straight lines or harsh angles (like my moda building blocks) or has intricate piecing + bold fabrics (like Haley's tone it down).

Case and points.

friday favorites

Friday, September 22, 2017

September was my first month to buy a Quilters Candy Box, and bless it it's darling!! I loved that they used the new B&C line The Good Life + a navy mini barn star quilt block from Julia @redrainbootshandmade as their sort of inspo for the month. That caramel brownie was in my belly so fast, and I'm already thinking that a Christmas version of the quilt pattern would be dang cute!! Oh, and of course I hung the navy barn star in our coffee bar to go with all of my navy Polish pottery.
