Me And My Sister Designs – Bright, Happy Quilts

If you tend to like bright quilts, with lots of color and pizazz then you will love the patterns by Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobon (and, yes, they really are sisters). Quiet, muted quilts just are not part of their repertoire!   I think the quilts they design are a reflection of their personalities.  If you follow the Me And My Sister Designs blog then you know what I am talking about!

Even the binding on the Happy Dance Quilt is bright and colorful.  The pattern includes cutting instructions for using fat quarters, eighth yard cuts and layer cakes.  Measuring 78 1/2″ x 78 1/2″,  you will have a whole lot of Happy when you are finished!

What little girl wouldn’t consider this a Sweet Treat to have in her bedroom.  Cover a table, or toss over the end of the bed.  All the applique is layered and raw edge so, besides all the colorful cheerfulness, you get plenty of texture and dimension.

The first in a series, Easy as 1…2…3 has instructrions for 3 different quilts that are very fast and very easy.   One is just right for a jelly roll and the other two showcase a fun fabric in the middle and you can use charm squares to make the borders.

Tipsy Quilt Pattern is somewhat muted compared to the other quilts, but it’s still rather colorful.  The block centers are just right for fussy cutting a fun fabric.

Send Flowers is a very easy stripy quilt with layered raw edge appliqued flowers….. just for fun!

We’ll have to revisit Me and My Sisters Designs in the near future because we haven’t even touched on the bags and purses.  And they have a super cute pincushion set…. super cute!  And LOTS more quilt patterns!

Christmas Quilt Patterns Galore

The QuiltersWarehouse home page is all dressed up for Christmas.  You’ll find quick links to lots of Christmas quilt patterns . . . .  all kinds of patterns for all kinds of Christmas projects.



Most of these patterns would make great gifts either all sewn up and made for your non-crafty family and friends or the patterns themselves for any quilters you know.   Of course even quilters would love to recieve a project already finished – and they will truly appreciate the work and love that went into the making.

Any patterns that you really like, but know that you won’t have time to make before Christmas, you can add to your wish list. Maybe you’ll find them under the tree come Christmas morning.  Then while the rest of the family is dozing after all the festivities, or playing with their new “toys” you can “play” with your new patterns.   Or add a quilt jigsaw puzzle to your wish list.  That’s something you can enjoy with family and still get your “quilting fix”!

Just click on the blue “wish list” button that shows up on every item page.  

And don’t forget the Christmas Quilt Fabric.  If you don’t use it this year you can never have too much stash!



Holiday Quilt Patterns – ’tis The Season

Soon you’ll be decorating for Christmas, pulling out all the decorations you stored last year.  You’ll put out old favorites and probably realize that one or two ‘old favorites’ just can’t make it another year.  Here’s your chance to add a new item or two to your holiday collection.

Has your Nativity set seen better days?  You might want to replace it with this stained glass wall hanging quilt pattern of a Manger Scene.   Baby Jesus lies in a manger with Joseph and Mary gaze down at him.  The Star of Bethlehem shines down on all of them.   Measures 26″ x 23″ when finished.

Are your stockings dirty from too much coal?   Or do they have rips from too many oranges?   Start fresh with these folk art stockings.  You’ll be able to keep in tradition and say “The Stockings Were Hung….”

Its always fun to add a few new ornaments every year.  This Vintage Ornament 6 Bird House is pre-printed and pre-colored.  All you have to do is the fun stuff…. the embroidery and the embellishment.   Chick-A-Dee Hollow has several different Vintage Ornament patterns.

And there’s still time to make a quick quilt.  Raggedy Pine should go together fast and not sacrifice any cuddliness.  Measures 50 x 54.  It’ll be a favorite for snuggling under and it will also look great tossed over a couch.

So, do an inventory of your decorations.  Then make a plan to sew a few new items.

Happy sewing!

It’s Gonna Be One Crazy Christmas!

While we are focusing on Jenny Foltz Quilt Designs I selected a pattern of Jenny’s to focus on these two weeks.   And it’s One Crazy Christmas.   What a bargain… three patterns in one.   A stocking, a tree skirt and a wall hanging.   I need a tree skirt but I’m really tempted to make the stocking first. 

I rifled through my stash for all my Christmas fabric.  It’s mostly fat quarters and at least some of them will be suitable for the crazy quilt sections.   

 Aside from my stash FQs the main fabrics will be a red and green from the Northcott Fabrics Gingerland collection.  The center fabric is a Thimbleberries Lakeside.  (I couldn’t resist fabric shopping!)


Now, as soon as I decide which project to make I can start cutting!


If you haven’t already commented on the previous post, be sure to do so before Friday for a chance to win two patterns by Jenny Foltz Quilt Designs.

Christmas Quilt Patterns

Wouldn’t you just love to have a full sized quilt to hang this holiday season?  If you start now you’ll finish in plenty of time with no pressure.

Folk Art Christmas is a bright and cheery quilt that will welcome friends and family to your home.   Applique is used to create blocks with hearts and holly, ornaments and pineapples, a house with a wreath on the door and a decorated tree.  Finishing at 55″ x 57″. 



The Magic of St. Nick has lots of Old Worlk charm and has a bit of a sampler look to it.  The blocks are constructed with various methods: piecing, foundation piecing, template piecing and applique.   You can choose the number of candles in the candle blocks.  The center of the quilt will really stand out with ultra suede on St Nick clothes and a dimensional beard.


 Choose your fabrics carefully for Winter’s Stars and you’ll be able to leave this quilt hanging even after the holidays are over.  The plain blocks that alternate with the pieced stars are just right for showing off a favorite print. 


The Twelve Days of Christmas is the kind of quilt that will generate a great deal of interest with all the detail that it shows.  Hang this now and your grandchildren will have special memories of Christmas at Grandma’s.   If you ever wanted to make an heirloom quilt this just might be the one.


You know this is just a sampling and there are lots more Christmas Quilt Patterns available.  And if you can’t quite get into the Christmas spirit yet, browse all the other quilt patterns at QuiltersWarehouse.
