Off Kilter - A Quilt Finish and Tutorial

Our good friend Melissa at Happy Quilting has shared this AMAZING tutorial for her Off Kilter Quilt and we are even more excited to share it with you!

Off Kilter - A Quilt Finish and Tutorial

I am so excited to get to share my newest quilt and tutorial. So let me just get right to it because I can't wait. I am calling this quilt, Off Kilter and I am so loving it!!!

Back at Spring Quilt Market I had the wonderful opportunity to chat with some of the ladies at Free Spirit Fabrics about doing some tutorials using their lovely fabrics. Thank you to FreeSpirit Fabrics for providing the fabrics for this tutorial!! I was instantly drawn to their new Denyse Schmidt Modern Solids. I mean, who wouldn't be when you see this box of yummy solid goodness. I really wanted to design something that highlighted the beautiful array of colors.

And that is how Off Kilter came to be. So, do you want to make your own Off Kilter quilt?? Let's get to that. The tutorial is written with the option of 2 sizes. A Lap that measures 59" x 70" or a Twin that measures 72" x 86". This quilt is so much fun to make and goes together so easy. You are going to have so much fun!!! So pick a size and let's get to it ;)

A can't miss... Moon Shine from Tula Pink!

Moon Shine is a fantasy camping trip full of mystery and wonder. Find the deer hiding in the daisies and the bear who ran off with all of the food, a paper boat floats down the stream and a mouse holes up in a woodland tree house. In typical Tula Pink fashion this narrative is set against a backdrop of vibrant color with a touch of elegance and whimsy. Moon Shine is a day dream where anything is possible and reality is replaced by imagination, here, anything is possible.

New... Snapshot from Verna Mosquera!

I am always amazed by the inspiration that daily life brings. My newest collection, Snapshot, grew from a simple moment in time when I looked across the table and realized that my one time little boy had grown into a young man. How did those years go by so quickly? I couldn't stop looking. In that moment completely unnoticed by him I took a mental Snapshot of him that will live in my mind forever.  When he left for school I moved into my studio and began my newest collection. It began with sepia as it is so  representative of an old photograph. Then I added pink, such a natural companion. Next came aqua, green and a hint of yellow, all colors used in days gone by. As I worked the color palette images of vintage photographs came to mind. Those images then sparked other delicate ideas - roses, small birds and more. Bit by bit Snapshot grew into something both lovely and nostalgic. Of course being the true romantic that I am it will always remind me of my son.
