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.

Here’s an image of the entire quilt:

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.

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.

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.
