A Scrappy Take On My Picnic Plaid Pattern

Color gradients. Remember when I said I wasn’t going to go there anymore?
Yeah, I went there. Again. I couldn’t help it, you guys! Gradients: So colorful. So orderly. So appealing to both the left and right sides of my brain. : )
So this is my latest addition to my always expanding collection of color-gradient quilts. : ) This is a scrappy version of my Picnic Plaid pattern (available here).
Here’s a shot of the original Picnic Plaid quilt. The original is strip-pieced in a narrower color palette, but I’ve had the urge to make it scrappier for some time now. So when Stephanie Palmer of Late Night Quilter asked me if I would want to contribute a pattern to her 2016 Quilter’s Planner, it was the perfect opportunity to create modified instructions for a scrappier version of that design. (Sadly, the 2016 Quilter’s Planner is now sold out! Sorry!)

 

Of course, Steph was nice enough to quilt this one for me, and worked her usual magic on it. I’ve always loved this loopy quilting pattern, and now I finally have a quilt that makes use of it!

This quilt has what might be my favorite print ever for a quilt back: Zen Chic’s “Notes” print in Charcoal on Fog. You can find it here at the Fat Quarter Shop and elsewhere. The binding is an older Zen Chic print called Barcelona. You can see a chunk of that print in the piecing above as well. I was really feeling the Zen Chic that day, I guess. : )

Regardless of which version of Picnic Plaid you prefer, it’s yet another great demonstration of how much print and color can change the look of any given design. Fun!

WIP Wednesday: Still Scraptastic

Good morning! Yes, I’m still plugging away at that scrap quilt that I started last week. This is going to be a scrappy version of my Picnic Plaid pattern (which was just about as un-scrappy as it could be in its previous incarnation on the pattern cover).

I had been planning to do this new version in a full rainbow of scraps, as you can see from this photo.
But then I took the photo at the top of the post. And I thought, oh no—that looks amazing! Which means I want to do it in this color palette instead! Of course, changing the palette would require redoing some of the blocks I already started. But I just feel like maybe I’ve returned to the rainbow well one too many times. So, is it worth the work to redo it? Do I have time? Tune in next week to find out. LOL.
Okay, so what are you working on this week? Let’s see it!

On Quilting “For Keeps”

I have a big pile of quilts that my family uses every day. Sometimes, those quilts are folded in a neat stack next to the couch, but more often they can be found in a crumpled heap, or my kids are dragging them around the house giving their stuffed animals rides on them, or one is crammed underneath the ottoman, or one’s in the washing machine because somebody spilled on it. And I love that: In my opinion, all of the above are what quilts should do. I adore having that pile available for whatever purpose anybody wants them to serve, whether it’s staying warm on a chilly evening or building a fort for the American Girl dolls.

 

Know when the most recent of those quilts was made? 2012.

Because somewhere along the way, I started taking quilts to trunk shows. And sending them off to fabric companies. And sometimes getting them professionally quilted by superstars whose work are true masterpieces, so you certainly don’t want to drag that around on the floor. And people said things like, “That quilt was in a book! Take good care of it—it’s special!”

Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. Love it. I’m not apologizing for attempting to make money on my quilting, or implying that turning my hobby into a job has taken the passion out of it for me. I still love what I do and feel incredibly lucky to have this dream job, even after spending the last year working a little (okay, a lot) more than I might have liked and feeling plenty burned out after Quilt Market this spring. And I still put my heart and soul into everything I make, even my “working quilts.”

But. There’s just no substitute for making a quilt that you know is going to get loved to death by your family. No substitute for making a quilt that’s going to get super soft and crinkly from a hundred trips through the washing machine. A quilt to sit on while you watch fireworks or have doll tea parties. Isn’t that what makes a quilt truly special, not the fact that it was in a book? Whenever I’m making a quilt, my girls always come to oooh and ahhh over it, and invariably they ask, “Do we get to KEEP this one?” And by that they mean, “Do we get to have this one in the pile in the family room, instead of squirreling it away in a corner of your studio, only to be taken out for trunk shows?”

 

Enter Amy Gibson’s new book, For Keeps: Meaningful Patchwork for Everyday Living.
You probably know Amy from her Craftsy classes or her blog Stitchery Dickory Dock. Her gorgeous new book has reminded me of the importance of taking time out from things that are designed and made strictly for my business, in order to keep making special quilts for the most special people in my life. It’s a tough balance to strike of course, because there are only so many hours in the day, but it’s important, after all!

And what better place to start than that scrap quilt I’ve been itching to make for months?

I was initially thinking of an Irish Chain quilt, but as these little pairs of squares have started coming together, I’m now leaning toward a postage stamp quilt—a postage stamp quilt of 1″ squares, you guys! Just the kind of beautifully torturous project that you want to keep forever and ever and let your family use and abuse. : )
My goal is to use at least a small portion of every single print in my scrap bins. Every one of them! I’m sure some will get culled eventually, but it’s the working goal for now, anyway. I’ve divided my scraps roughly into 8 color families and my goal is to do two colors a week over the next four weeks. The reds are already done, as you can see. : ) Then I’ll lay them out into a big ol’ scrappy rainbow and spend the next decade or so sewing them all together. Good times.

 

While my particular “balance problem” might be unique to bloggers and pattern designers, I think in this day of Pinterest and beautiful photos online, we can all be tempted to get off track and make things for the wrong reasons. Or to believe that everything has to be absolutely perfect in order to be “good enough.” For Keeps hits the reset button on all of that. The projects range from classic quilts to playmats and pocket pillows that hold books—all written with Amy’s trademark sense of humor and illustrated with beautiful photography that reminds you that the simple things in life are often the best. : )

Amy has also created a For Keeps website with lots of fun extras, including a free quilt pattern, and you can even take the For Keeps pledge to sew for all the right reasons! As of this afternoon, 969 people have already taken Amy’s pledge! So I hope you’ll pick up For Keeps—and check back here for progress on my keeper scrap quilt!

WIP Wednesday: Endless Scraps

I’m saving most of my good stuff for blog posts that you’ll see over the next few days! But I’ve been working away on a couple of projects lately.

My scrap quilt. It. Is. On. After much thought, I’m going ahead with an Irish Chain quilt, but I’m making a bazillion teeny blocks out of a gazillion even-teenier squares because … I enjoy a good trial by fire? What my summer really needed was more monotony? I don’t know. But I think it will be pretty darn cool when it’s done. Oh, and did I mention it’s going to be a color-spectrum quilt? Well, of course it is.

Also. This was happening. Most of Tuesday afternoon, in fact, this was happening. The girls are in a kids’ quilting bee this year (you may have already seen this post about it on Faith’s blog). This month, both of my girls made star blocks! I’ll post more about that next week.

And finally, the kitchen is coming along—I’m currently midway through my second coat of paint. This is where the monotony really comes in. But it’s looking amazing and I love it! So much lighter and brighter in there. Still, painting fatigue is starting to set in and I’ve got a loooong way to go. I think I’d far rather sew a bazillion teeny squares.

So who’s bringing you all this WIP-py goodness today? It’s my newest sponsor, Dinkydoo Fabrics!

Dinkydoo is located in Canada, which means two things:
1. If you’re in Canada: Score!
2. If you’re in the U.S.: Still score! Because Dinkydoo actually gets certain fabric lines months in advance, including Moda. And you can take advantage of the strong U.S. dollar to get great bargains.

Also, Dinkydoo has the new Cotton + Steel lines coming in very soon. And they have a cute zebra as their mascot. Pretty much all the major requirements of a good fabric shop. So get on over there and show them some WIP Wednesday love.

GIVEAWAY: This week, Dinkydoo is offering an amazing prize package: A layer cake and a charm pack of Modern Background – Ink by Zen Chic, plus a box of 100 Clover flower pins! (This contest is open to U.S. and Canadian readers only, sorry.) The Modern Background lines are perfection for scrappy quilts!

WIP Wednesday: Scrap-Happy

Happy Wednesday! Here’s what’s happening in my studio this week:

Lately I’ve been itching to make a something extra-crazy-scrappy, so I’ve started sorting through my scraps. I’m running out of room in the scrap bins, so I need to use up as many of these as possible! I had considered an Irish Chain, but now I’m thinking about something that will give more real estate to the scraps. Maybe just a simple postage stamp quilt? Hmmm.

Still working on the kaleidoscopes. Oh, yes. Still. : )

And I got my hands on this book
recently, so I’m excited to try my hand at some upholstery! Upholstery: A whole new use for fabric. I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to try it! In fact, my dining room chairs are in desperate need of a little attention, so a full review of this fun book will be forthcoming.

So who’s bringing us today’s WIP Wednesday? Yes, it’s Canton Village Quilt Works!

Jackie of Canton Village is thrilled to announce that her first book is coming out in September! “Splash of Color” is all about combining rainbow colors with black and white for some really eye-catching quilts. Splash of Color is available for pre-order right now.

My Fire Whirl Quilt in Scraps, Inc.

Looking for a way to use up some scraps? Oh, you are? (How did I know that? LOL.) Well, I’ve got a book for you. : )
It’s called Scraps, Inc., and it’s a beautiful compilation packed with scrappy—and modern—quilts. I’m so thrilled to have a quilt of my own in this incredible volume.
My quilt is called Fire Whirl, and, well, it’s a maelstrom of half-square triangles, is what it is. But what better way to put those scraps to use than HSTs?
Also, I’ve got a super sneaky, Thangles-but-better way for you to make all those HSTs. This slick little method requires no squaring up. Let me repeat: Zero squaring up. Sound good? I hope you love this method as much as I do!

I really, really love this quilt. Scrap quilts are always on my to-do list, and there are several other quilts in this book that are calling my name, including these:

My Favorite Things by Amy Ellis

Overcast by April Rosenthal

Richmond by Sherri McConnell (and I admit I’m a little jealous that my quilt didn’t get to hang on that awesome aqua step ladder thingy!).

Discount: Lucky Spool is kindly offering all of you a discount on Scraps, Inc.! The book is currently on sale right here for 20% off, and you can get an additional 10% off using the code SCRAPS30. Check it out! And maybe pick up a few for Christmas gifts while you’re at it. : )

Wavelength Quilt

This has been a long time coming, so I’m pleased to tell you that I have a new pattern available today! Wavelength is my twist on the classic Grandmother’s Two-Patch block.

I think Wavelength is my best pattern to date. Here’s why I love it:

You can paper-piece this quilt, or piece it the “regular” way, using templates. I know not everyone shares my love for paper-piecing (although I’m determined to convert all of you eventually!) So this pattern includes both paper-piecing templates and traditional-piecing templates. Choose whichever method you prefer.
You can paper-piece this quilt even if you have zero previous paper-piecing experience. Complete, step-by-step instructions for paper-piecing this very simple block are included, with how-to photos for every step. Just follow the instructions, duplicate what you see in the photos, and you’ll be able to do it! I think it’s pretty foolproof.
The pattern includes two design variations (the “Exploding” version and the “Traditional” version shown below), plus two sizes for each design variation, crib size and lap size. So you can get two very different quilts out of one pattern. Choices are good, right?

And to top it all off, the PDF version of the pattern is on sale, for a limited time, for just $4.99! I don’t put my patterns on sale very often, but I always put them on sale in the first week of release, so don’t miss your chance. Click here to buy it from my shop, or you can purchase it on Craftsy. A hard-copy version is also available, both retail and wholesale, and shop owners can purchase it through my distributors, Brewer and Checker, very soon.
My Wavelength was done in scrappy jewel tones, with an even scrappier black-and-white background. I spent months collecting all those black-and-white prints, and then used almost all of them up in one fell swoop for this quilt. But I can’t think of a better way to have used them! I absolutely love the completed quilt and I think it’s now my favorite. (This is the lap size, which finishes at 59″ x 77″.)
It took forever to decide how to quilt this puppy. I would have loved to do concentric circle quilting, radiating out from the orange star, but after my experience with this mini quilt from “Vintage Quilt Revival
,” I didn’t think I was up for it on something so large! And every free-motion quilting design that I considered seemed too soft and flowy for this design. So I finished it off with zig-zag line quilting, using my walking foot and the multi-stitch zig zag on my machine. Love it!

And then there’s the Traditional design variation of Wavelength. Isn’t it amazing how different the same unit can look in these two very different layouts? This version is done in Denyse Schmidt’s Florence fabric line for Free Spirit, with Kona Silver for the background. Silver is such a great light gray—perfect when you want something light, but not white. As you can see, I haven’t had time to quilt this one yet, but I have the perfect plan for it and will post it again as soon as I’m done!

And in the interest of keeping it real, there is an oops on my Wavelength quilt that I thought you all would enjoy. : ) This is what happens when your quilt back is about a half an inch too small! That gray polka-dot strip was added after the quilt was basted! It was a make-it-work moment. LOL.

As always, I can’t wait to see what you do with this pattern! If you Instagram it, hashtag #freshlypiecedpatterns or #wavelengthquilt. Enjoy, and have a wonderful springtime week!

Breaking News: Molli Sparkles Blogjacks Freshly Pieced

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Oh, that. is. right.–and it is about to get crazy, sexy, cool in this part of the Internets. For those that haven’t met me yet (such a rare breed you are), my name is Molli B. Sparkles, and it is such a pleasure to make your sparkly acquaintance. I normally blog around the corner at MolliSparkles.com, but today I’ve blogjacked Freshly Pieced. Don’t worry, Lee is perfectly safe: I’ve got her tied up over at my place (velvet handcuffs, of course!) She’s entranced by the 37 mirrored disco balls I have rotating in my bedroom. She’ll be fiiiiine. I’ve left Ace of Base’s The Sign on repeat just so she doesn’t get bored. Well, now that she’s out of the way, I can show you what I’ve been working on? Ready? Good, I thought you’d never ask. (And I’ve got news about a quilt-along and a giveaway down below, so stick around until the end!)

Earlier this year, Lee hosted a quilt along called Bloom Bloom Pow (BBP). I think she got the name from some group called the Black Eye Sees? They are so 2011, so whatevs, what you need to know is that this was my first QAL, and I immediately knew I was going to use my rainbow, batik bundle for it. Batiks, don’t even get me started. I am an equal opportunity quilter, so all fabrics are welcome at my house.
I recently finished the front, but it was the back that set my hotpants on fire. You see, the BBP left quite a few scraps behind. Now, I’m not a total Greeny, but I just could not throw these pieces of fabric deliciousness away, so I saved them for the back. From the outset I knew the back would be as important as the front and it has been slowly and improvisationally evolving. I got the main back panel piece finished this past week (before I left for Tokyo–now that’s a whole other story), so I guess it’s time to follow the rainbow.
It is all scraps. My goal was for it to look like that last, explosive bloom of fireworks that comes right at the end of the celebration. There’s still some additions to be made, but this is the hard yards. Here you have a detail of that scrappy craziness. Bias-wha!? Ain’t no bias gonna stop Molli B. Sparkles! Mmm hmmm. Check!

 

You might say I am a Rainbow Queen. I like high volume, turn those speakers out, type of situations. (The Sign must be on its 17th repeat by now, I’m sure Lee is loving it). This piece was also assembled from the Bloom Bloom Pow scraps, and it will be attached to the bottom of that giant plume of colour. I’m thinking reflections on the river, embers falling into the darkness. You dig?
Oh, dear, I haven’t even showed you the actual Bloom Bloom Pow quilt TOP yet. Well, now you can really see the fireworks inspiration, as I tried to use every bright piece of that rainbow, batik bundle, combined with dark outer pieces that make a collage of blacks for the night sky. I owe Lee a debt of gratitude for hosting this QAL because it allowed me a jumping off point to stretch my glittery, fairy wings.
What kind of quilter would I be if I was only working on one thing though? I mean, really, who does that? Not me, that’s for damn sure! To assist, I’ve put my Quilt Bee minions to work on assembling Union Jack blocks. Hopefully by the end of the year these will be a quilt for my soon-to-be thirteen year old daughter. (Hey, Lee, while you’ve got your jam on, can you just whip me up a few of these as well?) I created the tutorial to make these blocks and you can find it on my blog. It’s an anatomically correct, non-paper pieced Union Jack block. Yes, the tutorial is thirteen pages long, but I promise you, if you follow the instructions, it is easy, peasy, cheesy Cover Girl! Pose!

Okay, now I wasn’t going to show you this, because it goes against everything I believe in, and my whole high volume philosophy. For the regular readers of my blog, you would know about The Quilt That Never Was, where I basically costed the production of a quilt for a work colleague and realized it would break her bank, and my fingers if I did it for that cost. The initial design concept was a scrappy Trip Around the World, done in all tone-on-tone whites. The complete opposite of high volume, one might even call it “no volume.” (Thanks, Anne!)
I made a few test blocks for the client, but after determining the cost, I shut the project down. Except, I couldn’t. These blocks enthralled me, called my name (“Oooh, Mollllliiiiii…”), and left me begging for more. Hell, it left my readers begging for more. (“Please Molli, can I have some more?”) I can’t deny it, this is a quilt that needs to be made. And so, I’ve committed, and I’ve made two more blocks. If anyone has any white tone-on-tone 2.5” x 16” strips they’d like to send me, or trade for something else, I’d gladly accept! (Now who’s asking for more?!)
To take this concept one Louboutin heel further, I am keeping track of the entire production cost of this quilt. Each and every fabric and thread, every minute worked, including travel and design times, as well as shipping, and long arm fees. I’m scaling it down to a lap sized quilt, and once complete it will be available to purchase: for it’s actual cost, plus margin. No, it won’t be expensive, it will be true. If no one wants to purchase, I’m totally fine with that, and I will love it to death. If they do, maybe I’ll start a new trend in quilt costing and us quilters can finally be paid what we are bloody worth. Can I get an “Amen!”?!?

 

Finally–oh, don’t even act like your WiP list isn’t longer than this–I’ve got a little event called the Molli Sparkles Broken Herringbone Quilt Along (MSBHQAL, for short) that started on Monday.  Us, MSBHQAL-ers are using Anne from Play-Crafts Broken Herringbone tutorial to make all sorts of fabulousness. This is a fly by the seat of your pants QAL, so make sure your booty is well supported because we’re gonna shimmy-shimmy shake-shake til we can’t make-make no more. And well, here are some blocks I have made.
To kick off the first week of the QAL, I’m giving away a Molli Sparkles Broken Herringbone Quilt Along Bundle (MSBHQALB, for short). To enter to win this fabric deliciousness (3.33 yards!), simply make a broken herringbone block, send me a photo to prove you’ve done so, and then comment on the QAL announcement post. I’ll be randomly picking a winner on Monday, so you’ve still got some major time. If you love the block, why don’t you make a few more and join us on our MSBHQAL? You’ll end up with something along the lines of this baby quilt I made earlier in the year.

Okay, so that’s it. I mean, for sure I have a few other WiPs hiding in closets and under the bed, but unless Lee has broken free and put herself to work on them, we’re gonna pretend they don’t exist … for now. To recap: Sparkleworks, Union Jacks, No Volume Scrappy Trips, and Broken Herringbones is what I’ve got cookin’ up in my sparkly studio.

Now it’s your turn. You know the rules, link up below.
1. Link up any post from the past week that features at least one unfinished work-in-progress (WIP).

I hope you enjoyed this hijacking, and make sure to check me out in my own ‘hood MolliSparkles.com. Sparkles and love always–Molli.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
