Christmas Projects Are Here!
I've had the pleasure of collaborating with some amazing modern designers on a couple of fun, quick Christmas projects. If you're looking for something to fit in between trying to remember exactly how many nieces and nephews you're supposed to be shopping for, grab one of these, pull out those Girl Scout cookies you've been saving for some "me" time, and whip up something festive.
The first is the Quick Christmas Banner (digital pattern HERE). It is based on five simple paper-pieced patterns that you can string together to decorate your mantel or all. I've used these individually as little quilted gifts to slip in with a Christmas card too!
The second project was actually an outgrowth of the first and it's a pair of crisp, modern Christmas pillows. They're two of the same designs included in the banner and are both paper-pieced. The pillow pattern includes the larger size pieces AND instructions on how to make a quilted pillow. Get the pattern HERE.
And, of course, there's a combo pack HERE that includes both patterns!

Color Jolt Paper Patterns Are Here!
I get asked almost daily for paper versions of the Color Jolt pattern. You all can be very persuasive so... here they are! The paper version of the Color Jolt pattern comes with full-color instructions, beautiful photos, and color-coded illustrations and guides. When you buy it, you get access to PDF downloads of all the full-sized templates and coloring pages you might need to complete your quilt AND a set of bonus tools that I made for the 2020 Color Jolt Quilt Along.
Speaking of which, follow along through the quilt along blog posts HERE and you'll have a complete step-by-step guide to making a throw-sized quilt over the course of 6 weeks.
If you're a shop, check out the wholesale tab for wholesale options too!

The Lucky Twist Quilt Is Available!
The latest SparkleStash pattern is modern and geometric and perfect for trying your first two-color quilt or busting your scrap bin and pairing them with your new favorite background fabric.
It can be completely traditionally pieced OR you can use a combination of simple foundation paper piecing (hello, crisp lines!) and traditional piecing (hello, old friend!). This is a great first paper piecing pattern if you're new to the technique or a fun project to build on the skills you learned in making the Color Jolt Quilt.
