Quiltmaker's 100 Block Tour

Welcome to meags & me - possibly the best mother/daughter team of appliqué and embroidery lovers and we are SO thrilled to be a part of this amazing magazine for a 3rd time and extra extra thrilled to have made it on the cover! We squealed with delight the first time we saw it!

Our block features our favs- birds, flowers, appliqué and embroidery. Really, we don't think there is anyone who won't like this block.

For fun, and because my table was desperately needing a spring upgrade, we made a table topper. The best thing about this is it can be made with any 12" block.  And the pinwheels. Pinwheels make everything happy.

We've been loving strip quilts lately- and this one is the best!

Super large applique pieces make this really, really fun to make.  We love the bright reds and pinks, but honestly, this would be adorable in any color combination.

And who doesn't love elephants?

You can find the pattern here (and get it instantly! A perfect excuse to go fabric shopping, we think)

Bloom Quilt Pattern & Matching Embroidery Home Decor

Our Awfully Nice (formally called, that is) quilt was massive, and really quite hard to take a picture of, and after a lot of stewing and hating the cover/name, we staged a little photo shoot.

I've wanted to do a little embroidery work on burlap canvases, so we tried it out.  It was a little tricky, but totally worth it!

This quilt & coordinating stitcheries are perfect for spring!

The quilt pattern includes two large bed sizes- king & queen, plus a small/baby size.

The embroidery pattern includes all 3 pictures, perfect on pre-made canvases, but they'd also be great framed.

A nice way to use a little scrap fabric to tie everything together.

Bloom Quilt Pattern is found here, and Bloom Stitcheries are found here.

Awfully Nice Quilt Pattern

We fell completely in love with this gorgeous fabric line from Cluck Cluck Sew/Windham Fabrics.

And this quilt *sigh*.  I've claimed it for my house, sorry "me".  And my grandma has started making one for her too.  We seem to gauge the success of any pattern on how quickly my grandma wants to make it.  She's really great like that.

Pattern comes in 2 sizes (yeeesss!) and is really beautiful, and super fun to do! These are big pieced blocks, and the quilt is so awesomely large.

Awfully Nice is available here.
