I’m so excited to be a guest on Pat’s show!  To mark the occasion and to celebrate Valentine’s Day, I’m giving away a full/queen size kit of the Kaleidoscope Symphony quilt shown below.  This red & pink version seems an appropriate colorway for the season of love…check out this previous blog post to see a fun quilt walk with many, many more examples of Kaleidoscope Symphony quilts made in different fabrics.

During the radio show / podcast, Pat & I will chat about how I started Quilt Moments and also talk about the company, Twister Sisters, which is the new home of the popular Twister tools.  Twister Sisters is co-owned by me and my friend Lisa Amundson of Around the Bobbin.

The Twister Planner is the first pattern that we created as Twister Sisters which is a handy guide that walks you through 15 different quilt sizes runner to queen so you can easily create any size scrappy twister quilt that you wish with the Lil’ Twister tool (for 5″ sqs), Midi Twister (for 6-1/2″ sqs) or the Twister (for 10″ sqs).  You can see the tools and many other twister patterns by Twister Sisters, Quilt Moments, and Around the Bobbin at Twister Sisters.

In October we introduced a new smaller size twister tool called the Mini Twister tool  which can be used with 2-1/2″ strips and 4-1/2″ sqs.  The fun feature of the Mini Twister size is that you can make 4-patches using four different 2-1/2″ strips and then twist so each pinwheel has four colors for the pinwheel points!  The Mini Twister tool includes the pattern for this fun table runner.  If you are careful with your cutting, you can make a potholder or coasters with the leftover pieces.

New Quilt Designs & Kits Available

January 17, 2017

Hi fellow quilters!

Here are four new quilt designs and kits which are now available and on sale at Craftsy.  The patterns are currently only available with the kits, however, I’m hoping to publish the patterns as stand alone Quilt Moments patterns sometime this spring.

The first quilt is called Ribbon Rainbow.  It was inspired by my Ribbon Rings pattern (QM128) which uses 2-1/2″ strips.  The Ribbon Rainbow quilt is made with 1-1/2″ strips cut from fat quarters in order to create a more intricate design and a larger quilt.  The quilts shown are king size.  The quilt is prepared in rounds from the center out, so you could complete as many rounds as you wish for your desired quilt size.

Here is a photo of the black version of Ribbon Rainbow

The other three quilts were made with a collection called Heirloom Bloom.  First up is Charming Friendship Stars.  It’s a simply design made with half-square triangles and has a fun, scrappy look.  This quilt is a baby or small throw size.

Next, is the Medallion Quilt which is 98″ x 98″, a perfect queen or king size.

The last quilt is Trellis Garden and this one is actually made from my existing pattern by the same name Trellis Garden QM116.  This pattern uses my 4-patch kaleidoscope technique.
