New Quilt Kits Coming Soon

I've dedicated this week to quilting, and getting some more quilts finished to make into kits, and boy do my shoulders ache! The new house sadly doesn't have a bath, but we're definitely now making that the priority job, oh, how I've missed a long soak... anyway, back to the quilting.

Having more or less sold out of my All Squared Up kits (I have one left in the American Patch fabrics) I'm working on replacements, and couldn't resist these Sun Prints by Alison Glass with this sumptuous grey from Makower, it seems to make them shine doesn't it!?



I seem to be addicted to this wavy line quilting, it may take a while, but it really is so easy, and so effective, and going from my experience at recent shows, it really sells the quilt. And of course, I couldn't resist a pieced backing...


You know when you love the back as much as the front?! You can see the instructions for this backing here in my free tutorial for this All Squared Up quilt.

For new quilt kit ideas, I've turned to my quilt patterns for inspiration, and decided to make a slightly larger version of my Snowballs in Spring pattern using this gorgeous Papillon range from Makower along with a couple of their blenders.



This one is now basted to ready to quilt, my job for today. I hope you're all having a creative and productive week, if you have more time for quilty chat and inspiration, why not pop along to these linky parties and say Hi:
Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts, Midweek Makers at Quilt Fabrication and Needle & Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation.

    1. Thank you so much, I do love this quilt pattern, though I think these fabrics would shine whatever I made! :)
