Bambino Quilt Pattern

I'm playing catch up with patterns I never announced here on the blog. This here is "Bambino", one of my favorites!!

You can purchase the pattern here.

The pattern calls for a 3.5" Treat pack for the scrappy border, and a bit of yardage for the rest. That's for the baby size. It also has instructions for a throw size quilt, using a 5" charm pack for the scrappy border. I have a custom charm pack cut out from this pretty stack, ready for a Christmas throw size! Hopefully this year.

This one is special because my 4 year old helped me quilt it. He "pressed the gas" for every single one of those straight lines! I'm sure I gained some gray hairs that day :)


A couple of people have followed the colorway on the cover and made baby boy quilts. I love that version! You can see others here.  Not all of them are visible because some people are private, but you can see screen shots in my Instagram stories today!

The blog reader coupon code for this one is BAMBINO. Real original :) 15% off your entire order, expires Thursday at midnight PST. Thanks for stopping by!

Heart Quilt Pattern- Where Love Is

I made this quilt and released the pattern last summer, but realized today that I hadn't posted it here on the blog.  It's called "Where Love Is"- you can purchase the pattern here

It's quite a simple pattern. It calls for 4 half yards of pink and 4 fat quarters of red, but I made mine even a little scrappier than that! You can see the clever variations my testers made here.

I used a mix of mostly Bonnie and Camille pinks and reds for the hearts. The background is Moda Crossweave in grey, and the backing is from Jungly by Andrea Turk for Cinnamon Joe Studio. It's a bit redundant but I couldn't help myself, especially since it was a momento from a trip to Florida with my husband. He was kind enough to accompany me to Sunshine Sewing Studio on our getaway where I snagged 5 yds of this. Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere now except for as a fat quarter bundle here.

Look how tiny my pup was when I made this! She was just a wee little brand new thing.

The gorgeous loopy quilting was done by trusty Starlit Quilts.  I keep meaning to write a separate post about her, and still intend to, but let me just say- I met my match with her. I've used many longarm quilters and haven't had trouble with one. They all did a lovely job! But Star has everything I need- a wonderful array of backings on hand (she has an entire Etsy stop that's just my style), the kinds of batting I like, the price is right, and she is meticulous. I've never had a quilter ask me about my preferred scale until her. And I love her options! She's got great edge to edge designs available, but also does a top notch job with custom. The only thing that could possibly make her more perfect would be if she and I were neighbors! Bless that Star. That's her name :)

If you don't have a Valentines quilt at your house yet, you definitely still have time to make this one!  I named this one after one of my favorite songs. It's a children's song in my church, and I love hearing the little ones sing it, but you can listen to the choir singing it here

Thanks so much for stopping by. As usual, enjoy a blog reader discount of 15% off- this time with code HEARTS. This applies to any patterns! Expires a week from now. Happy heart day preparations!
