How to make a quilt cool enough for summer? Well, Summer is here!!!!! Time to think about sunny days and beach vacations, cool drinks and summer nights. So to celebrate our next few months of warm weather with “Making Lemonade”.
Indigo is one of my favorite colors. It is bold yet dark and mysterious. Indigo can play the part of the background or take front and center in a project. For this month’s project I designed House of Blues and I wanted to make the dark Indigo color the star of the show. I used my AccuQuilt GO! Qube 6" Mix & Match Block to make this project quick and easy.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. To celebrate the month of love, I designed our little lovely quilt, “Dearest Heart”. It is the perfect size for a wall hanging or table topper. So let's celebrate the month of love with sweet projects, acts of kindness and lots of chocolate.
Sugar Cookies Apron Pattern: Quickly and Easily
The Holiday season is upon us! Here at the Pridemore house, it means that my mother-in-law and husband will be making the most amazing sugar cookies from a very old family recipe. This is a tradition that they have been doing since Matthew was a very small boy. Last year was the first year I helped with the cookies as my mom-in-law was not up to standing for hours as they make them. So this year I will be ready with my new duty with my Sugar Cookies Apron.
Here at The Whimsical Workshop Studios, we design hundreds of patterns a year for a large number of clients. Every once in a while, one design will stand out as a favorite for me. This is the case with the Modern Melody Basics quilt we designed as a FREE pattern download for Henry Glass Fabrics. When I was sent the fabric collection to work with I thought about doing a Drunkard’s Path design and immediately planned on using my GO! Drunkard's Path-7" Finished die (55034) if we ever needed to make the quilt.
Fall is upon us and for people in Arizona that means the end of 100 degree days. Yah! So fall in Arizona can feel a lot more like spring does everywhere else. So this month to celebrate the cooler weather I decided to design a whimsical dragonfly table topper. I used a collection called Dragonfly Dance from Benartex Fabrics. This fabric has beautiful gold details to add elegance to the stunning artwork. I used my GO! Qube Specialty Set-Serendipity by Edyta Sitar to make the applique design and the pieced border.
