A Quilt Story, by Heather and Megan

Mod Tweet, indeed ! It’s Day 6 of our “cute quilts for kids” series. This is a story of Heather and Megan, two sisters with the love of all things crafty who have created Quilt Story.  Based in Arizona, their company features patterns with a contemporary, upbeat feel. We love their mod themes and easy-to-sew designs.

Mod Tweet, 43 x 50“, by Heather and Megan, at Quilt Story

Simple and elegant, "Mod Tweet" features a bird and branch/leaf appliqué that is small enough to be completed in a couple of evenings. At the Quilt Story shop you can see that this quilt looks great in many different colorways.

Circus Stack (elephant, giraffe, bunny), 43 x 51" , by Heather and Megan, at Quilt Story

The whimsical and precarious "Circus Stack" features a juggling bunny, a giraffe, and an elephant, all balancing on a circus ball. Heather explains: "I loved this cute Urban Circus from Robert Kaufman... my brain went a little wild". You can read about the collaborative design and inspiration for the quilt, here. You can even add the initial of your little one on the ball.

Easy Sailing, 39.5 x 44.5“, by Heather and Megan, at Quilt Story

Nice view ! Sweet and simple sailboats glide softly on the sea... we love the wavy lines that define the ocean waves.  "Easy Sailing" is such a fun nautical pattern, which Heather & Megan introduced this spring (you can read about the quilt here). This quilt has a great combination of cool, aqua-colored water and warm, polka-dotted boats (note the little red flags on the boats, which are matched by the tiny flag on the sand castle).

  1. They're all lovely quilts and would be suitable for a variety of ages. I like the blue version of Mod Tweet best, I couldn't work out how the "scallops" were done until I zoomed in - very clever to use ric rac as it adds a bit more texture as well.

  2. Hi Megan;

    I got your terrific fabric bundle last week and it is super... thank you!
    As promised, I have a sweet little zippered pouch for you. I set aside the envelope with your return address on it in a very special place. So special, that it is not to be found. Would you mind emailing me your address?


  3. Those quilts are lovely in there simplicity. My favorites for now!
