New in the Shop!

Hi everyone! I'm excited to announce that I've just listed a few fan favorite blocks in my Etsy shop!


In case you missed them, these are previous Quilt Block Mania blocks which, after a period of time, I list in my Etsy shop. These join the other popular blocks below.

So many different blocks to create with!

As for other Quilt Block Mania blocks, some will eventually be turned into full quilt patterns, some will be for free, and others are just waiting a reasonable time before I decide which way they'll go. So many blocks - so hard to decide!

Happy Quilting!

Midweek Makers 331

 Welcome to Midweek Makers!

While it's technically not the time of year for sunflowers, I'm going with it because of three pretty sunflower themed projects that were shown last week.

From Vicki's Crafts and Quilting, a new sunflower banner,

from Not Afraid of Color, this pretty spring flower,

and from Quiltpiecer, a lovely sunflower quilt for her granddaughter.

Though my share was made a few years ago, it goes with today's sunflower theme - my Sunflowers table runner.

As a bit of added fun to today's party, how about 25 percent off the Sunflowers pattern? That allows plenty of time to make the runner for sunflower season in late summer. Just use coupon code 'SUNFLOWERS' at checkout in my QuiltFabrication Etsy shop, now till midnight May 17 - enjoy!

Now let's get this party going!
  • please link directly to your post
  • please link a quilt related item
  • visit with the others and leave some comment love
Have fun!

Chantille Quilt

Introducing my newest scrap quilt, Chantille.

This approximately 56" x 66" lap quilt is composed of 8" teal scrap blocks, appliqued pink hexie flowers, strip-set sashing pieces, and even a scrap border and binding. That's quite the use of scraps!

In case you haven't followed the progress on this quilt over the last month, I suggest reading these previous posts to see it's evolution. And you may learn a few new techniques too!

Now back to Chantille. Here's a few close ups, first of the scrap blocks, hexies and sashing.

Next up is the quilting, with the gorgeous Chantilly pantograph in a pale yellow-green thread.

Love it! The quilting design is just beautiful on this quilt! I like that pantograph so much on this quilt that I chose a derivative of 'Chantilly' for the quilt's name. And it shows up so well on the back too.

Notice the pink band? I felt the original backing idea needed some oomph, as it was composed of yardage in the middle and pieced parts at the top and bottom - boring! So, I cut out a 5" horizontal center strip and inserted a 6" pink strip.

So much better!! Now this quilt resides on my sofa, to snuggle under while watching some evening TV.

Currently, I don't plan on writing up a pattern for Chantille. If there is enough interest, I will - just drop me a comment if you would like to also make the scrappy Chantille quilt. It's also possible there could be 1 or 2 more sizes too - just let me know.

Happy Quilting!
