School Days, School Days… or is it School Daze?

Looking for inspiration to get the creative process going for my blog this week I turned to google. I needed some ideas to start off my writing for the school themed patterns I wanted to highlight. I bounced around the internet and I landed on YouTube.. uh-oh. I’ve been down that rabbit hole before.

So I will now share with you what I found. 😊

A song written in 1907 called School Days (When We Were a Couple of Kids) …. The lyrics start like this:

School days, school days

Dear old Golden Rule days

‘Reading and ‘riting and ‘rithmetic

by Will Cobb and Gus Edwards

Interestingly enough… I have heard this song before. Not sure where or why though.

I continued on my journey (sidetrack) to a song by Chuck Berry! Same name (School Days) and I definitely know this one as I am sure most of you do too!

And then… I landed…. on this beauty…. 😂…. It has nothing to do with what I was looking for but gave me a great laugh this morning.

Hope you enjoyed my journey (sidetrack) as much as I did. And now we go onto the patterns!

Classic Pencil and Crayon Quilts

Your kids (and Grandkids) will love these lap size pencil and crayon quilts! They are fun & vibrant. Great for snuggling under while doing homework and a great stash buster too!

Decorations For Your Home or Classroom

Backpack, Bags, and Binders… oh my!

You can purchase any of the above patterns on the QuiltWoman.com website- just click on the image.  Most of the patterns as available as both paper patterns or instant downloads.  

Wishing everyone a safe and happy school year filled with wonderful memories!

Happy Quilting!

New Fabric Collections and Classic Patterns

One of the projects that I am working on this week (and probably next week!) is updating the Designer pages on the QuiltWoman.com website. Each of our designers have their own page which can be accessed by the drop-down menu on the left-hand side of our website. The designer pages have an “About” section that gives you a brief background of our designer, whether or not they are a teacher, links to websites, facebook pages, blogs, etc. The pages also have all of their patterns listed. Which means…….I have been browsing through more of our classic patterns!

This week I also opened up an email from Andover Fabrics. They were highlighting some of their new fabric collections that are coming out soon. Of course I had to look! And look! And look! I admit I got a little sidetracked on their website.

So between my project and the email from Andover Fabrics I found two patterns and a couple of fabric lines that I wanted to experiment with.

Here are the results:

Prairie View (AW-015)

This pattern is designed by Anne Wiens of Sweetgrass Creative Designs.

The image to the left is the original sample quilt.

The center is a fabric panel.. but could also be used to highlight a large print fabric. The pattern gives directions to make 3 sizes of quilts.

Finished Sizes:
Crib: 44″ x 56″
Lap: 55″ x 70″
Twin: 66″ x 84″

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Technique: Pieced

…….and here is my recolor for Prairie View

Fabric Line: Sunflowers and Honey by Kim Schaefer for Andover Fabrics (Available February 2022)

I love this collection. Bright and Cheery!

The panel in the Sunflowers and Honey collection fits nicely in the twin size quilt of the Prairie View pattern.

You can purchase the Prairie View Pattern by clicking this link.

To see our selection of Sweetgrass Creative Designs patterns – click here.

Here is the second pattern I chose to recolor.

Crazy Daisy (BL2-126)

This pattern is designed by Bea Lee of Beaquilter.

The image on the left is the original sample quilt. I do love the yellows and grays in this quilt but wanted to play around with some other ideas and fabrics.

Put together 8 stunning fabrics with a solid and this quilt will look awesome.

Finished Size: 64″ x 84″

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

Technique: Pieced

First I tried Splash of Color by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts for Andover Fabrics. This fabric collection is going to be available in November 2021.

I picked all blues but the collection has some beautiful bright colors as well- watermelon, cherry, orchid, berries, teals, oranges, violets…etc… which would look stunning in this quilt as well.

Hope you have enjoyed these quilt pattern recolors. Which is your favorite?

Happy Quilting!

Pattern Highlight

In the last blog I talked about the pattern trends for July. It was a list of the top 20 patterns purchased during the month. In case you missed the post here is a link.

This week I wanted to highlight more of the patterns purchased by our customers. These didn’t make the top 20 last month but I definitely think that they are worth a mention.

The first pattern I am going to highlight is Strippy Whippy. I don’t know about you but I love precut fabrics….. especially Jelly Rolls! I am always looking for something fun to do with them. This pattern is definitely going to be added to my list.

Flip Flip Dot

While browsing the Quiltwoman.com website I saw a classic pattern that I really liked. I liked it because the pattern looked very versatile. With just a quick change of fabrics it could be used for anyone. It is called Flip Flop Dot (MD-68) and was designed by Marlous Carter of Marlous Designs.

You can see our full selection of Marlous Designs patterns here.

Flip Flop Dot Quilt Pattern MD-68

The Flip Flop Dot pattern includes instructions for three size options: Lap/Throw, Twin, and Queen. The pattern is great for stash busting but would also work well with a layer cake.

Heavy Metal

Upon seeing Flip Flop Dot I immediately thought about the new fabric line Heavy Metal by Northcott. Heavy Metal has two colorways Pewter and Gold that will be in stores by December 2021. I couldn’t wait to “redo” Flip Flop Dot in this cool fabric.

And when it was finished I wasn’t disappointed. Of course, I didn’t stop there.

This fabric line is called Bliss Basics by Northcott.

Or how about using just two colors?

This would make a great gift quilt. Choose your recipients favorite colors, team colors, or holiday colors in solids or prints. In darker colors this makes a great guy quilt.

You can pick up your copy of Flip Flop Dot on the QuiltWoman.com website today. Available as both an instant download or paper pattern.

Happy Quilting!

Classic Pattern Redo

Even though I have worked for QuiltWoman.com for many years I still have not seen all of the patterns that we currently carry.  There are just so many of them! 

The bonus of working for QuiltWoman.com is getting the first peak at all of the new patterns that our amazing designers are writing and of course seeing all the new fabric lines that are soon to be released. 

Also I enjoy fulfilling the daily orders from our customers. It gives me a chance to see what patterns they have found on the website and what is catching their eyes.

Here is one that was recently ordered that I had not seen before. 

Modern Simplicity BS2-410

Although this is one of our classic patterns I thought that it would be perfect for some of the fabric lines by Northcott that are coming out soon.

Like Color Collage….

Color Collage

Or Fleurs


Maybe a patriotic theme like Stars and stripes.

Stars and Stripes

Or perhaps one of the great Christmas fabric lines, batiks, or solids.  The big blocks are great for a large print focus fabric or even space to show off your quilting skills.  Really the options are endless.  You just have to use your imagination.
