Winter temps are def here which makes this project all the sweeter. Winter bonticals are what keep me going until spring! I pulled 11 botanical and Xmas inspired prints that have a vintage feel to make a warm and cozy quilt. Hoping to keep out the Iowa winter chill (or at least try!). I already love how its coming together! . Pattern: Radiate @thencamejune Fabric: @modafabrics @official_basicgrey Kringle & Claus collection
Allll of the winter botanical quilt blocks are coming together! Adding a little extra green into the fabric mix, its going to be a short winter riiight??! 🌲 . Fabric: Krigle & Claus collection: Festival of Berries in Snow, Coal, Juniper, Blue Spruce, & Frosty. Tinie in Blue Spruce & Berry. Frosty Flakes in Frosty. Grunge in Juniper, Blue Spruce, & Frosty. @modafabrics @official_basicgrey Pattern Designed by: @thencamejune Radiate Quilt
I should be making cookies and cleaning right now (I might have that backwards😄)... but its so hard not to work on this instead! . This is the mock up for Juniper & Holly; I love how these fabric patterns and colors play off of each other and mimic the gorgeous, cool toned, bluish greens that winter botanicals are known for! . Adding snow white sashing in between the blocks and small pops of red at each intersection to warm it up... just a little bit! 😍 .

I get asked ALL THE TIME, what do you do with all your quilts? I use them!! Either to snuggle with or decorate with. Here’s a shot of one spot in the living room. So I’ve used 4 quilts here. One draped on the sofa, one on the wall and two folded on the bottom shelf of the end table. . If using more quilts in your decor is a goal, look for furniture that has display space like the shelf on the end table. When replacing upholstered furniture, buy neural. Do you have any large baskets? Roll quilts and fill the basket. Line a basket with a quilt and let part of it drape over the side. . When making quilt, go seasonal! Then you can change things up for the season! It’s quick and makes such an impact in a space. . What’s your favorite way to use your quilts? I’d love to know ❤️ ✨ ✨ #sweettreasuresquilts#modafabrics#showmethemoda#decoratewithquilts#quiltsofinstagram#christmasquilts#quilt#quilting#sew#sewing#handmade#christmasdecor#simplystrippyquilt#holidaychicquilt

This was my first time using a minky backing. It has since proven to be one my favorite backing choices. It is so warm and soft and there are far more choices than I had thought. The quilt pattern is #northstarquilt by @emily_dennis_ and the quilting is by @knotandthread . This is my favorite slow time of year. We have been doing lots of reading aloud together, baking Christmas cookies, and watching Christmas movies. We have been making our way through our beautiful Advent devotions like our Jesse Tree and Pennance Service. The kids have been rehearsing for the children's choir for Christmas Eve Mass and we are readying the house for all the family coming in for a few weeks during Christmas and New Year's. Tomorrow we are hosting a Gingerbread House decorating party and the kids can't wait! Yes, this is definitely my favorite time of the year.
Magical Victorian Garden blooms on my frame ❤️ 🥀 This quilt talked to me in so many ways! It wanted all at once: classic crosshatching, modern lines, vines and frames, fillers and complex backgrounds. I looked at it and doubted, came back and looked again. It has been challenging me for a few weeks. Then it sat on a frame, and I struggled. There were days I felt I caught the idea by the tail, but it slithered away again. I decided to go with this or that and then changed my mind. Finally, I felt that this quilt was all about them, the treasures of this gorgeous Victorian Garden - the flowers, and quilting should enhance their beauty without stealing it or taking advantage with complex structures and distracting shapes. This Garden is getting new shadowed heroes: herbs, flowers and leaves, veins, berries and ferns. And no frames at all. No straight lines, no fence, no limits. Just more botanical shapes and amazing texture that pops under your fingers. This is love. @eobquiltdesigns, thank you for this miracle 🥀 #quilt#quilting#freemotionquilting#juliaquiltoff#garden#applique#appliquequilt#reverseapplique#roses#quiltsofinstagram#quilted#quiltersofinstagram
Good morning and happy Monday friends!!!! . . This beauty showed up in my memories over the weekend, so I thought it would be fun to share the story behind this quilt. This is my first.... several firsts actually. This is the quilt that introduced me to pattern designing and writing. My quilting bestie @porchswingquilts was watching me make some Christmas tree blocks from a pattern, and she got inspired! She pulled out her trusty laptop and launched EQ7 (only because EQ8 wasn't available yet😉).... That is when I saw the magic of quilting from inspiration to idea to brainstorming to math to fabric selection to finished quilt top. We were very happy that @beelori1 had already designed the perfect house block. All we had to do was create the perfect red truck for the pattern. That took a few days, only because she kept changing her mind😉🤣. Anyway, this was the finished product! Its big and super easy to make. Its jelly roll friendly and you can find the pattern, without the house, in her shop. I think she has published the truck pattern separately🤔🤔🤔🤔 . . What's the first quilt that made your want to step up your skills and step out of your comfort zone? Post pictures and share your story! #ldsintrovert#christmasquilts#doyoueq#eq7#loriholtbeeinmybonnet#porchswingquilts#patterndesign#quilts#quiltersofinstagram#quiltsofinstagram#showmethemoda#thenerdyquilter#thenerdyquiltersshop
