A Super Quick Quilt

Well, I feel like super quilter woman after completing this quilt top in three days. Yes, you read that correctly...three days from design to completed top! (If you could see me now, my arms are in the air with fists held high. "Yes, I can piece quickly. I did it!" :-)

I'll be quilting this in the next day or so (a quick meander will do), and it will become a sleeping bag for my Ginger #1. Ginger #2's quilt is already quilted and ready to be bound and zipper attached. I should be able to start making their teepee soon. Yes, I am super quilter woman now! LOL!

This is a Christmas present for Ginger #1.  It will be made into a sleeping bag.  I will need to make another one for Ginger #2 too...before Christmas.  Oh, and I want to make them an indoor teepee!  I'll be busy with the sewing machine.

***This giveaway is now closed***

I have a fun giveaway for you today sponsored by Pile O' Fabric! Details for entering are at the bottom of this post.

Pile O' Fabric started as a modern quilting blog by Alyssa Lichner with tutorials and project inspiration.  Alyssa is a great resource for skill-building and helpful tutorials.  This year, Pile O' Fabric branched out, and it is now an online fabric, supply, and pattern shop.  Note: Alyssa offers free domestic shipping on all orders over $45, a rewards program for returning customers, and all fabric is labeled with the designer, collection, name, etc.  Woohoo!  Alyssa always puts together fantastic stash bundles for us.

This last week, I was able to help out, and I put together the Frozen Bundle of coordinating prints and Kona Cotton solids.
FAB-P12114-1
The prints include XOXO in Night Ow, Trophy in Teal, Deco Petal in Turquoise, Sealing Wax in Amethyst, Zig Zig in Shell, and Branches in Ash.
FAB-S12114-2
The solids include Kona Cotton in Nautical, Baby Blue, Ice Frappe, Cerise, Primrose, and Snow.

I made a new (and free!) foundation paper pieced pattern that will coordinate beautifully with these fabrics.  The pattern can be downloaded from my Craftsy Pattern Shop.  This pattern will be free through the holidays.  So go get it!

New Patterns

I have three new foundation paper piecing patterns in my Craftsy Pattern Shop.  The first one is called Frozen Star, and this pattern coordinates perfectly with my Frozen fabric bundles on sale at Pile O' Fabric.
Screen Shot 2014-12-03 at 4.18.37 PM
Look at that secondary pattern!   Oh, my heart, be still.  This pattern can be downloaded for free through the holidays.  Go get it now!
Screen Shot 2014-12-03 at 4.20.44 PM
The second foundation paper pieced pattern is one that I designed almost one year ago.  This is such a sweet little owl...
Screen Shot 2014-12-04 at 10.26.06 AM
I made this owl for a baby quilt.  Here's a reminder of that quilt from February.  The original blog post can be found here.

Finally, the third foundation paper pieced pattern is a silly little monkey...
Screen Shot 2014-12-04 at 1.09.32 PM
I made this for another baby quilt last February.  The original blog post for this quilt can be found here.

I hope you enjoy these new patterns!  I do have a foundation paper piecing tutorial if you are new to FPP.
