Purple Passion Quilt Homecoming

 The Purple Passion quilt arrived home from Modern Quilts Unlimited recently.  I'm so happy to have it back.  I always give my quilts a welcome home hug as soon as I get them out of the shipping box.  Thank you, MQU for taking such good care of my quilt.  Here's a peek into the making of the Purple Passion quilt:

 Six gorgeous fabrics from Timeless Treasures.

 Testing my block pattern.  This color combination would make an interesting quilt, too.

 Tracing curves for cutting.

 Six little purple rainbows.

 Flip side of blocks as they are being sewn into rows.

 The center of the quilt flying free on my clothesline.

 Pinning the solid black border into place.

 Purple squares sewn into strips for the next border.

Paper piecing triangles for the purple triangle border.

Fold and sew.

All the borders are on.

Swirly quilting.  

I only quilted over the black fabrics.

Quilting...

Quilting...

Quilted.

The backing fabric.

Purple Passion!

I'll be sleeping under this quilt tonight.  So warm and cozy.  The pattern for the Purple Passion quilt is in Issue 21 of Modern Quilts Unlimited.  If you sew a Purple Passion quilt, please send me a pic.  I would love to see it!

Quilty Box Mini November

 So, you've been thinking about trying Quilty Box, but aren't quite ready for the big box.  Did you know they also offer a Quilty Box Mini?  This is a smaller size monthly subscription.  Here's what is in November's Quilty Box mini:

 A 5" charm pack of the Me and You fabric collecion.  Also included is the same booklet about this month's featured designer, Latifah Saafir.  The booklet has an interview, a pattern, and a few other monthly features.  It's like a mini quilt magazine, filled with inspiration and ideas.  You can see a quilt pattern tucked behind the charm pack, too.  

And a lovely green spool of Aurifil thread.  This would be perfect to finish up those last minute Christmas gifts.  Let's get sewing!

November Quilty Box!

 What will Santa bring you and all your Quilty friends this year?  Order your Quilty Box by December 10th, for a Christmas surprise in your mailbox!  Here's a peek at the goodies that were in the November Box:

 The November Quilty Box featured designer is Latifa Saafir.  There is a short interview with Latifa.  She is inspired by tessellations, and has included a pattern to make a modern style "Slap Bracelet" quilt.  

 Also included is this fabulous eight piece fat quarter bundle of Me and You from Hoffman Fabrics ~ Hooray!  We all love fabric, don't we?

Here is Latifah's own Clammy 6" tool.  This is used in her included pattern, and can also be used to make many different curvy block variations.

 The Sewline Fabric Glue Pen.  I'm thinking hand applique without pins....can't wait to try this out!

Red and Green threads from Aurifil.  These have me thinking "Christmas!"

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Calendar

 For each issue of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Quiltmaker sends a little thank you gift to the designers and block testers.  In the past they've sent big buttons, mugs, mouse pads, aprons, and tote bags.  This time it's a calendar.  The cover has a wonderful photo of all 100 blocks ~ isn't that fun?

Whoever put together the months did a really nice job.  Each month features a block theme that coordinates with that time of the year.  My "Grow a Little Love" block is featured in February, along with a bevy of Valentine and red blocks.  So sweet!  You could sew all of these blocks into a special Valentines quilt for a special someone.

Thank you, Quiltmaker!
