New Friday Tutorial: The Baby Kisses Quilt

Easy Baby Kisses Quilt with Free Video Tutorial!

Babies are the best, which is why we’re so willing to overlook how gross they can be. Runny noses, smelly diapers, and mysteriously sticky fingers all fade away when your little munchkin snuggles up for a love. And there’s just nothing sweeter than baby kisses! A smooch from those teeny, chubby, kissy-lips is enough to cast a spell on anyone!

With a few snowballed corners, this new Baby Kisses Quilt is pretty, pint-sized, and perfect for wrapping up your little angel. Plus, it’s so easy to make!

Motivational Monday: The Best Medicine…

Motivational Monday: The Best Medicine…

There was a story featured in our July 12th Daily Deal email from Mary Beth (every Tuesday we share one of your stories… there are some really wonderful ones!). It was Mary Beth’s story that inspired our Motivational Monday printable for today, so click on the image above so you can print it for your sewing room! Here’s what Mary Beth said:

“Several years ago I was ill for an extended period of time. My life consisted pretty much of shuffling between the bed and the sofa. I had long hours of free time but no hope of being able to do what I most loved: making quilts. But those unfinished projects piled in my upstairs sewing room were never far from my mind and I yearned to bring them to life again. Then inspiration struck: the dining room!  I wasn’t going to be serving dinners in there anytime soon. My daughter and husband were most cooperative. They hauled down my sewing machine, cutting tools, ironing board, endless gadgets, as well as piles and bins of fabric and, of course, the unfinished projects.

“I could tolerate working about fifteen minutes at a stretch. I learned to iron sitting down. As I worked on  my various quilts in this way for more than a year, I found it to be liberating and life affirming. I had accomplished something by the end of each day. I once again felt the satisfaction and joy of a finished quilt project. My daughter was thrilled with the Bargello wall quilt I completed for her office. When my guild did a mystery quilt I was able to participate. I made charity quilts. I had something cheerful to mention when talking to friends and family and they got excited for me as well.

“This was not only therapy for me it was therapy shared. I was sewing again; surely all was right with our world. Eventually I grew stronger and moved back into my upstairs sewing room.  However, I no longer accumulate partially finished projects on my shelves. Everything started is a work in progress until finished and somehow that feels therapeutic too!”

Pictured below is Mary Beth’s daughter Katy and the Bargello quilt mentioned in the story.

Whatever you’re going through, we hope that quilting can offer you a little reprieve. Download the printable for a little extra reminder. It’s not just a hobby, it’s preventative medicine! 🙂

Happy Quilting!

This tutorial features the beautiful Uppercase 2.5″ Strips by Janine Vangool for Windham Fabrics. Aren’t they gorgeous? They’re so bright and happy that they give the perfect pop to this quilt! In fact, we love it so much that we’ve teamed up with Janine to do a little fabric feature and giveaway!

UPPERCASE-JanineVangoolStudio

The Uppercase Fabric line was inspired by Uppercase Magazine, which was founded by Janine Vangool and is operated by her and her family. The rich, saturated colors paired with neutrals brings this line full circle for any project that might need some happy, positive energy. Janine used small scale monocromatic prints in her designs to add depth to each color that can be used as a more dynamic alternative to solid color fabrics. If you can’t tell, we love it!

So, today we’re giving away a 1-year subscription to Uppercase Magazine (North American addresses only), 3 single copies of Uppercase Magazine (North American Addresses only), as well as a beautiful Uppercase Fabric Bundle! Find out the ways to enter below (All entry options are optional, but you have to choose at least one to enter!) That means there will be FIVE winners!!
