Twin Size+ Puff Quilt Pattern is Here!

twin size puff quilt 3

Another long awaited pattern is here!  I have been asked time and time again if I make puff quilts larger than baby size.  My answer was and will always be 'nope, sorry!'  I really don't enjoy making large puff quilts because it is a lot of work.  So there is your fair warning.  But once it's done, I have to say, it's worth it!  My friend Sarah helped me make this quilt for this pattern and I probably couldn't have finished it without her, … [Read more...]

The Last Three Puff Quilts


I have a brand new quilt pattern to share with you all this Friday but today I want to share with you the three last puff quilts that we've made.  Yep, this is it.  No more puff quilts...(sniff! sniff!)  I'm sure that I will make more for my future babies/friends babies/grandkids/etc but right now this is the end.  I'm not going to be closing up shop, because I will still sell my patterns indefinitely and there are several quilts waiting to … [Read more...]

New Puff Quilts and An Announcement


It's been a long time coming but we finally have a new batch of quilts in the shop!  Six new quilts, mostly new designs (two are based on existing popular designs.)  I have three more quilts that will be in the shop as soon as they are bound. That being said, I have an important announcement to make.  I am finished selling quilts.  {GASP!}  Last summer, right when I was gearing up to start selling quilts full throttle, I kept having this nagging … [Read more...]

Yay!!  A fabulous fabric giveaway!  Let me back up first... So does everyone know my "Diamonds" quilt?   That aqua minky fabric in there (the super soft dimpled fabric) I originally found at Hobby Lobby about three and a half years ago.  Well everything was going good, and the Diamonds quilt was (and still is) my most popular puff quilt.  One day I was like 'Hmm!  I'm out of aqua minky!' so I took myself to Hobby Loggy (as Lucas … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2013-01-15 at 9.40.36 PM

In my near-three years of blogging, the number 1 question I get asked is "Where do you get your fabric?!"  People have told me many many times that I have an eye for colors and design and I choose excellent fabrics that go together.  Here's what I have to say to that---Thanks!!  But also, I'm going to let you in on some of my secrets to buying and selecting fabric. DISCLAIMER:  This is not a post about how to get fabric on the cheap.  I have … [Read more...]

New Puff Quilt Pattern: ‘Puffy Island’

puffy island on the floor

Presenting my newest puff quilt pattern!  I call it Puffy Island because all the little puffs with the flat white sashing in between remind me of little desert islands in the ocean.  This puff quilt is a mixture of puffs and traditional flat quilting--the best of both worlds!  I chose a rainbow ombre scheme for this quilt because lets face's super cute.  I've always loved the rainbow array of colors and I've got a few projects coming up … [Read more...]

Four New Puff Quilts


The flu is still rampant in my household and now my little 13-month-old has it.  There's really nothing sadder than a baby who is so sick...they don't smile, they just cry and want loving and holding and have no energy or life in them.  So that's what I've been doing, the best I can with two other kids.  Just holding her and watching WAY too much kids TV (to the point of wanting to blow my brains out.) But today during a rare happy moment when … [Read more...]
