Sweet Treats Tutorial

Sweet Treats Tutorial

Learn to create this Sweet Treat Quilt using Moda  Cake Mix 1!

I’m an excellent cook – as long as the recipe is easy to follow! Break it down into easy-to-follow steps, and I’m sure I could conquer even those most intricate of dishes. (But leave me to my own devices, and we might have to call in pizza for dinner!)

 

Jenny from Missouri Star Quilt  Co. shows you just how fun Moda's Cake Mixes truly are!

Today we’re working on a brand new kind of “recipe,” Cake Mix Recipes by Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co for Moda. These pattern pages sit on top of your 10 inch squares to guide you every step of the way.

Fabric Friday: Quilt Market Edition

Fabric Friday: Quilt Market Edition

Fabric Friday is taking a slight detour this week in order to share a bit about our trip to Quilt Market last weekend. We headed to Pittsburgh, PA for Spring Market this year. Everything you see here will be shipping to stores in the coming months, so stay tuned to the shop!

Market is held each fall in Houston and rotates between five different cities for spring. Wondering the difference between Market and Festival? Market is the industry trade show, while Festival is open to the public. The photo above shows one half of the booths we checked out! Crazy, right?

At Market, we have the chance to see and visit with our favorite designers to see their new fabric lines. Look! We found our friend Lynne with Kansas Troubles!

We also get to see exciting new products, like these awesome die cuts from Sizzix! Amazing, right?

The booths are always great to see. So much inspiration in a 10’x10′ space! Check out the colorful new Paint collection of fabric by Carrie Bloomston for Windham! You might recognize her name from her popular debut collection, Collage. Fans will be happy to know the newsprint fabric is back!

Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree never disappoints! This is her booth for her upcoming Moda collection, Somerset. So many beautiful new quilt patterns she has, too!

Heading over to the Robert Kaufman Fabrics area, we find more quilts that wowed us! Many of our Instagram followers asked about the pattern (made from the Beau Monde line) and our friends at RK tell us it will be a free pattern called Cleopatra’s Fan, coming soon to their site.

Also in the Kaufman section, Valori Wells had several amazing quilts on display! Check out this one made from her Blueprint Basics fabrics. Keep your eyes here for the free pattern coming soon!

RJR introduced a new division of the company called Cotton + Steel. If the always-crowded booth is any indicator, these collections will be quite popular. The five designers’ collections are all designed to work separately as well as together. The giant swatch wall seemed to dance to the air conditioner in the convention center!

Check out this beautiful flying geese quilt, made with the Homebody line from Cotton+Steel:

Market might be all business for MSQC, but you know us…we still know how to have a great time!

….and leave inspired to sew! Just ask Al. He picked the upcoming Fig Tree line as the perfect collection to make his FIRST QUILT! Stay tuned, kids. Things are about to get awesome!

Lucky for Al, he knows a family member (or two. or ten) who can teach him! Any guesses for the tutorial he’s picked? Or any tips to pass along? Leave him a comment and cheer him on!
