Fast Track Quilt Pattern - A Christmas Version

 I'm still working away on some Christmas projects for this year, but this quilt I'm sharing today was one I actually finished LAST year.

As I was pulling out my Christmas quilts the other day (yes, I know...it's already December 8th!) I realized that I never shared the details of this quilt with you.

Fast Track Quilt in Golden Hour Fabrics

 I've made a few different versions of the Fast Track quilt pattern but this one is definitely at the top of my list of favorites! And I thought this one deserved to be photographed out in the pretty fall colors at one of our local parks.

A friend of mine helped me name this pattern and it truly is a fast one to make. 

Fast Track is a pre-cut friendly pattern that has a modern look to it, but really suits any fabric that you use - even solids and scraps.

Holly Jolly Tree Skirt in Holly Holiday Fabrics

In the process of updating the Holly Jolly Tree Skirt pattern earlier this year, I ended up making several versions to test the pattern changes. And I get to share one of those tests with you today!

This is the Holly Jolly Tree Skirt made with Holly Holiday fabrics. I love the pairing of these cheerful fabrics with the pattern!

Holly Holiday came out earlier this year, but you can still find some in shops (here from Fat Quarter Shop, and here on Etsy).

Dinner Party Quilt Pattern in Notting Hill Fabrics

This Dinner Party quilt pattern has been out for a short time now but I haven't yet shared the details! 

Dinner Party is a pre-cut friendly pattern in four sizes, and makes a fun and modern quilt that's perfect for showing off your favorite fabrics.

Because of these nice large blocks, this is a perfect pattern to use with your favorite medium and large scale prints. 

Love large florals? Or novelty prints? With Dinner Party you don't have to cut them down too small - use them and let them be the star of the show. 

Or take Dinner party in a more modern direction with solids.

These gorgeous Notting Hill prints were my inspiration for this pattern. I wanted to be able to use a single set of 10" squares (Layer Cake or 10" Stacker) and enjoy the larger florals, plaids and polka dots.

Winter Magic Quilt Pattern

I have a new pattern to share with you today- just in time for your Christmas and holiday sewing. 

Introducing Winter Magic!

I've been loving large-scale statement quilts lately and this one was a fun challenge to design.

Winter Magic is a unique take on a medallion quilt. I love the look of medallion quilts but not the exactness in seam allowances that they require. I designed this quilt to have the look of a medallion without the tricky piecing. 

The pattern makes a 78" x 78" quilt

Clear Sky Quilt Scrappy Version

I've been able to get a few of my WIP quilts finished up lately and I'm looking forward to sharing them! This quilt is my most recent finish - I just finished binding it over the weekend. It is a scrappy version of my Clear Sky pattern-

I stitched this up during the recent Clear Sky Quilt Along that I hosted throughout August and September.

It was a lot of fun, and I have to say...I've learned that quilt alongs are a great way to make a quilt! Personally, as a participant, I like having the schedule to follow (and to keep me motivated) and it's so great to see all the different versions that people are making right along side of you. If you've never joined one, try it sometime!

Split Stars Quilt - Summertime Version

 This quilt has been a couple of years in the making! I started it back in 2019 when some of these prints were first available. It's been my slowly-but-surely project ever since.

Do you have one of those? A project you enjoy working on, but you take your time and just let it be finished when it's ready to be finished?  I have a few projects like this, and they're so much more enjoyable than the ones I rush to finish (go figure!)

For the fabrics in this quilt, I had a fun time pulling prints from several different lines. 

Most of the fabrics come from a line called Orchard which was designed by April Rosenthal for Moda Fabrics. I used some of those prints as a jumping off point and added in a few coordinating prints from other Moda lines. This color palette just screams "SUMMERTIME!" to me.
