Plot Twist is a precut friendly pattern that includes five size options. It's a really versatile quilt pattern that looks great in medium and large scale prints, but can also work well with smaller scale prints and even solid fabrics!

Prime Time Baby Size Quilt

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a baby quilt that I finished up a couple months ago, but realized that I hadn't shared it here yet! This is the baby sized Prime Time quilt made with Berry Basket fabrics.

I made this using the leftover pieces of fabric from another project - which always feels so good to do!

A few months ago, I had just finished up making a quilt for a magazine (which I'll share soon) and I loved these fabrics so much I didn't want to just add them to my scrap bins. I realized that with some.... creative cutting I could squeeze a baby quilt out of the leftovers. Don't you love when that happens?

Cheer Up Quilt Christmas Version

Today I'm sharing a Christmas version of my Cheer Up quilt pattern. I started this quilt as a sample for my Garden of Quilts class that I taught this year, and was happy to have a good excuse to get it done in time for Christmas!

For this Christmas version of Cheer Up, I started with a few prints from the Good News Great Joy fabric line (by Fancy That Design House / Moda), and then I wandered around one of my local quilt shops to gather a few more that coordinated. The last few prints were added from my stash. And I'm really happy with the final combination!

Maple Leaf Quilt Block Tutorial

Today I'm sharing a tutorial for these classic Maple Leaf quilt blocks!

Before we get started, I want to let you know that there's a free printable version of these instructions available here. I've included two sizes for you, a 9 1/2" block and a 12 1/2" block.

Want to see what you can make with these blocks? Be sure to scroll to the end to see the quilt I made using the 12.5" blocks.

For this example I'll be using a single print to make one block but these Maple Leaf blocks are also really fun as a scrappy block. So pull out those scraps and give it a try!


Here's what you'll need for one 12.5" x 12.5" block

  • 4 print squares, 4.5" x 4.5"
  • 2 print squares, 5" x 5"
  • 2 background squares, 5" x 5"
  • 1 background square, 4.5" x 4.5"
  • 2 background squares, 4" x 4"

The Mod Mugs quilt pattern in Oh What Fun fabrics

Today I'm sharing a lap size version of the Mod Mugs quilt pattern. I actually finished this one up a few months ago and shared it on Instagram as a part of the Oh What Fun fabric tour with Poppie Cotton, but wanted to share it here as well!

These sweet Christmas fabrics are perfect for this Mod Mugs quilt - they're all medium- and small scale, they have a vintage feel to them and the colors are so cheery. The little pink Santa print is my favorite in the group!

The Mod Mugs Quilt Pattern

Introducing the Mod Mugs quilt pattern - a precut friendly quilt pattern with four size options. I love this cozy, wintery version sewn up in Winterglow fabrics by Ruby Star Society.

Mod Mugs is a modern and fun, traditionally pieced pattern - meaning there's no paper piecing or templates needed - just basic piecing skills. 

I wanted to create a no-fuss Mug quilt that could be customized with different fabrics and optional whip cream topping. I kept the size of the mugs big enough so you could show off your favorite medium and large scale prints. Or fussy cut some favorites too!
