Modern Robe Pattern  plus Robert Kaufman Lumina Fabric


Quilt Inspiration's own Marina Lynn designed this sophisticated and comfy Modern Robe pattern, which is easy to sew and requires no pinning pieces on the fabric. Along with the robe pattern ( a $12.00 value), we're including one-half yard of RK Lumina fabric, with glamorous metallic gold scrolls -- enough to construct the robe belt ! 



Entertainer Marie Osmond has filled this 112 glossy page hardcover book with 20 fun sewing projects, including some adorable quilts. The book is spiral bound, so it stays open handily. Every project has clear, easy-to-understand directions, with illustrations. Full size pattern pieces are included in their own folder.  You'll love these ideas for gifts for all occasions !

Marge Edie's Bargello Quilts  plus Hoffman California International Batik fat quarter

 
 

We're fascinated by bargello quilts, so we love to collect books about them. Marge's 90 glossy page book contains clear instructions and illustrations to make these absolutely spectacular projects. To get you going on your masterpiece, we're including a fat quarter of Hoffman 1895 Bali Handpaint topaz-colored batik.

Alexander Henry fabric and Quilting Treasures fabric


Here's a fat quarter each of  pretty teal and white "Martine" Lawn Trees Alexander Henry fabric and soft coral and peach "Namaste" Quilting Treasures fabric. We purchased extra for a king-size wedding quilt we were making, and we'd love to share these two fat quarters.

My Other Kitchen home decor pattern plus Alexander Henry fabric


We never got around to this unused Vanilla House "My Other Kitchen" sewing pattern ( value $9.50), but we sure wish that one of our valued readers would ! This package includes a pattern for : an apron, placemats with napkins, a three pocket hanger for mail or keys, a dish towel, an oven mitt, and even a scone mix bag with a recipe for white chocolate chip scones. Sounds yummy !We're including a half yard of Martine Lawn Trees fabric for inspiration.

Modern Quilt Magazine  and Robert Kaufman fuchsia batik fabric


August was "Modern Quilt Month" on our blog, and we were really inspired by the current Summer 2014 edition of this magazine. It's full of gorgeous quilt projects and interesting feature articles. For more motivation, we're adding in a fat quarter of Robert Kaufman's vibrant Elementals Geos 5 fabric # 13860-108. in resplendent fuschia with tangerine accents.

1895 Hoffman Bali Handpaints


These tone-on-tone batiks work great for all sorts of quilt projects, including landscape, traditional, and modern quilts. Here's half a yard of cheery cheddar yellow and a fat quarter of vivid Halloween orange to brighten up any room.

Simplicity Home Decor Pattern 5068 and "Submarines and Seaweed" for Westminster Fabrics


You can really sew up a storm with this new, factory-folded, uncut home decor pattern. It includes directions for making: a tablecloth, table runner, placemats, napkins, a tea cozy, egg cozy, muffin server, and silverware caddy. We're adding a half yard of this cute coral "Saltwater" line fabric designed by Tula Pink for Westminster.  Time to get started ! 



Author Sue Beevers has written a fun, easy-to-read 95 glossy page book about how to sew a "Dancing Dragonfly" quilt. This fascinating pattern looks complex, but it's simpler to construct than it appears. We're adding a fat quarter of Vivid Violet Dotted Waves batik, which should provide some stunning contrasts.

  88. Every post without fail has inspired me, interested me and sometimes amazed me. You perform an outstanding and vital service for quilters around the world who are remote and isolated from quilt exhibitions; you give us a window on the world of quilting, with great photography, intelligent commentary and inspiration to strive for more and better quilts. I'm on the other side of the world, Down Under, and my exhibition opportunities are very restricted. Thank you for the work you do on our behalf. You can find contact details on my blog, if I'm lucky enough to be picked!

  89. You always share such wonderful patterns & quilts! Thanks for all the inspiration.

  90. When I'm stuck with what to make with my fabric this is the first place I turn. Without you knowing you've helped me several times - so please keep up the great ideas for me as well as all the other quilters followers.
