Giveaway Day: 12 yard Fabric Kit, Book plus Pattern of Your Choice!

December 8, 2014

Hi fellow quilters,

I’m participating in the Giveaway Day organized by Sew Mama Sew.  Since I have lots of goodies and couldn’t decide on just one, I decided to include THREE great prizes in the bundle!  My giveaway includes a Twilight Kaleidoscope Kit with 12 yards of Robert Kaufman fabric, my Kaleidoscope Symphony book, and a Quilt Moments pattern of your choice.  The photo below shows my Twister Illusions pattern as an example, however, you can choose any one of my 40 patterns on the website.  All together, this bundle of goodies is worth over $175!

Giveaway QuiltMoments 2014-12-8

If you are visiting my blog for the first time, thank you and welcome.  My name is Marilyn Foreman of Quilt Moments patterns.  I live near St. Paul, Minnesota with my hubby and 3 school age kids.  I’ve been quilting for 18 years and started my pattern business 8 years ago soon after leaving my full-time job to spend more time at home with the kids.

I love all kinds of fabrics, especially brights, and my first passion is designing patterns containing easy four-patch kaleidoscopes which are made by chopping up beautiful large feature prints into simple strip sets of various widths and then sub-cutting them into square sets…no fussy cutting needed!  I also enjoy designing patterns for pre-cuts and scraps, patterns for panels, and patterns featuring the fun Lil’ Twister tool.

Here’s an example of some of the four-patch kaleidoscopes I made this weekend using the new Imperial Garden Blue fabric designed by Chong-a Hwang for Timeless Treasures.

Now, let’s talk about the goodies in the giveaway bundle and how to enter to win!

First, the Twilight Kaleidoscope kit with 12 yards of fabric.  My Craftsy class called “Quilted Kaleidoscopes” demonstrates my kaleidoscope process in detail, shows tons of fabric examples, and includes directions for four projects including two runners and two quilts.  The Twilight Kaleidoscope kit included in the giveaway is featured in the class.  Click here or on the photo below to see more information on the class.  The link gives you a 25% class discount.

Second, with the skills learned in the class you will be able to make any of my kaleidoscope patterns including the designs in my Kaleidoscope Symphony book, which is the next item included in the giveaway.  The book includes directions for 9 different blocks including optional kaleidoscope centers and contains many projects from topper and runner up to queen size.

Quilt Moments 3 New Patterns + Houston Quilt Market

October 24, 2014

Hi fellow quilters,

We’ve been very busy preparing new quilt samples and patterns. The Houston quilt market starts tomorrow!

We wish we could be there to see all the great people and all the new quilting goodies.  We’ll have a booth at the spring quilt market in Minneapolis.

 

Here are the  3 newest patterns that will be available soon.

You can see more info about the patterns: size options, fabrics used, etc. at What’s New on our website.

QM139-Panel-Twist-Cover-Web

Panel Twist QM139 – great for large prints or panels and the Lil’ Twister tool.

QM140-Spinning-Wheel-Runner

Spinning Wheel Runners QM140 – pick a large print and have fun making easy 4-patch kaleidoscopes with squares and rectangles.

QM141-Spinning-Wheel-Quilts

Spinning Wheel Quilts QM141 – includes 4 sizes throw to king.  More fun with easy 4-patch kaleidoscopes!

Here’s a peek at the fabrics I used for one of my Spinning Wheel Runner samples

Kaleidoscope-Fabric-Lakehou

The fabric is called Sausalito Cottage by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse Dry Goods and it is in quilt shops now.  I just love these large hydrangeas.  The 14″ ruler is shown along the selvage to give you an idea of the scale of the fabric.  The hydrangeas are about 6″ in diameter.  The lengthwise repeat of the fabric (along the selvage) is 12″.  To make any of the Spinning Wheel Runners you only need 4 repeats of a large print (at least 8″ repeat) so in this case you need 1 1/2 yards.  You will have some fabric leftover that you can use for a border or piece together for a scrappy backing.

QM140-SpinningWheelRunner-LHSausalitoCottage

This is the tablerunner size of Spinning Wheel Runners

QM140-SpinningWheelRunner-Closeup

Here’s a close up of one of the large blocks.  It looks difficult, but trust me, it’s very straightforward.  It is made completely with squares and rectangles, and the easy 4-patch kaleidoscope technique of layering and cutting strips from four identical pieces of large print fabric that I use for all my kaleidoscope patterns & book so you’ll be addicted before you know it!  Same process for the Spinning Wheel Quilts, just more blocks and more fabric:)

Here are the quilt samples that are on display in fabric company booths at the Houston quilt market.

QM135-Twister-Shimmer-RK Kona 30th Anniversary

Twister Shimmer (QM135) version made completely with Kona’s Sunset Fat Quarter bundle and Kona black yardage.  Made for Kona’s 30th Anniversary.  Pieced by Marilyn Foreman and quilted by Kristi Ryan.  Stay tuned for the 30th anniversary blog hop starting November 1st.

The quilt is in the Robert Kaufman booth at market.

QM139-Panel-Twist-Twin-TT-F

Panel Twist (QM139) twin version made with Fantasia and Tonga Carnivale batik collections by Timeless Treasures.  Pieced by Marilyn Foreman and quilted by Sandi Moser.

QM121-Elegance-Throw-TT-Vienna

Elegance (QM121) throw sample made with new Vienna collection by Timeless Treasures.  Pieced by Marilyn Foreman and quilted by Sandi Moser.

The Panel Twist and Elegance quilts are both in Timeless Treasures booth at market.

Until next time, enjoy all your quilt moments!

Happy Fourth of July!

July 3, 2013

Hello Fellow Quilters,

Here’s wishing a Happy Independence Day to all Americans and a Happy July to those of you around the world!

The last few months have flown by with the craze of Portland quilt market in May and no school for my 3 kids starting in June which means lots of happy chaos in our household.

Looking forward to a big BBQ with the family tomorrow and then off to the cabin for some fishing, sleeping, eating, & lots of time just happily staring at the lake.

I updated the What’s New section of the Quilt Moment’s website with my newest patterns so you can check out Twister Sparkler, All For One, and Starlight plus see some of my designs in the newest fabric lines.

Since several of the patterns show patriotic fabric options I thought I would share them here today.

First, here’s a red,white & blue version of the new Twister Sparkler (QM134) which is shown on the back of the pattern.

And here are two versions of my Starlight design (QM132) in Northcott’s Stonehenge Stars & Stripes collections.  The image below is a page shown in the brand new Quiltmaker’s Classics magazine

QM132 Starlight Northcott Stonehenge S&SII

That’s it for now.

Have a fabulous holiday and enjoy ALL your quilt moments!

Marilyn
