Now in Stores | Underwater by Elizabeth Olwen

Market Tote pattern by Noodlehead and Bermuda Shorts Butterick 6061

Underwater is inspired by a love of the ocean and the world that exists under its surface.

This is a tightly balanced range of cool pink, blue and citron – with a nice patternly mix of what we’ve come to love from Elizabeth. They mix well with a number of our Cirrus Solids and We Are All Stars, too!

Underwater is sure to be a spring and summer favorite and as winter hails upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, working on a project with this pretty bunch will get you readied for the warmer days.

Make It Sew | Unicorn and Stars Wall Hanging

unicorn_quilt_blogWe have had a great response to our Holding Horses quilt for Aneela Hoey’s Stay Gold collection and there was more than one request/suggestion to make it a unicorn. And here it is! We modified the silhouette a little and we think this version, appliquéd expertly by Linda Spiridon and quilted magically by Sue Papalia sparkles in We Are All Stars.

This is only a template. You can scale it to any size you like but this is printed at 100% the size you see in the photo.

Use whatever appliqué methods you like best on whatever size panel you care for. You can also make an entire quilt by piecing blocks together. For a more whimsical wall hanging, try some fancy trims. Sky’s the limit! Enjoy.
