MILKY WAY PATTERN

Hello, friends!

As I posted on Instagram and sent out newsletter, MILKY WAY pattern has released last weekend!

My inspiration for this pattern was beautiful milky way in the night sky. I thought it would be fun to make this pattern with a lot of colors. These colors really pop with the dark background!

Skill level for this pattern is advanced beginner and it’s FQ and 1/4 yard friendly. This pattern is more traditional look than I usually make. But I added modern spin into it.

It might look a little complicated to arrange the colors but all you need is selecting the fabrics or colors according to fabric requirements, cut and mixed them up! You don’t need to think what you are going to use for each block. Just pick what you love and you are ready to go!

I used Kona Cotton Solid from Robert Kaufman Fabrics for the cover quilt and the colors I used for this one are…

Pickle, Lemon, Caramel, Salmon, Dusty peach, Ash, Fog, Aloha, Lingerie, Oasis, Bahama blue and Sky. The outline for the star is Kona white.

For the background, I used THATCHED by Robin Pickens for MODA. It’s very beautiful navy!

The block finishes at 16″x 16″. It’s large block and you can have a lot of fun with it! There is no complication of sewing the block but it might be tricky for some of you to sew three-piece triangle square. I shared easy way to trim in previous post. —> click here THREE-PIECE TRIANGLE SQUARE I hope it will be helpful for you.

This pattern includes four sizes. Small throw 48″x 64″, large throw (16 blocks) 64″x 64″, large throw (20 blocks) 64″x 80″ and bed size 96″x 96″. The quilt on the cover shows small throw.

And it also includes two versions.

This is scrap background version which is another way to enjoy this pattern. This version is also FQ and 1/4 yard friendly.

Three-piece triangle square

Hello!

I have a new pattern coming soon. Before release the pattern, I’d like to show you the easy way to trim using useful tools! It might make sense for you if you had the instructions though… But I hope you get the idea!

So you make a half square triangle (HST) first. (I will not explain how to make HST here since it’s mentioned in my pattern) Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of a piece of square.

With the right side together, layer the marked square onto HST. Make sure that marked line and HST pieced line are crossed. Sew two seams, each ¼” away from the marked line.

The other side looks as shown in the photo above.

Cut on the marked line.

Trim the three-piece triangle square using the ruler. I used Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers by New Leaf Stitches ruler. I want to make 3-1/2″ square (unfinished), so I aligned 3-1/2″ dash line of the ruler onto the stitched line.

If you don’t have this ruler, DON’T WORRY! I will show you how to use the regular quilting ruler to trim the three-piece triangle square!

Before showing that, here is the three-piece triangle square after trimmed.

Okay, now I will show you an alternative way . You need the quilting ruler with 45 degree line and the masking tape. (painter’s tapes work as well) I used 6-1/2″ square ruler.

Place the masking tape on the ruler. Again I want to make 3-1/2″ square (unfinished), so I placed the edge of masking tape from 3-1/2″ mark to other 3-1/2″ mark on the ruler as shown in the photo above.

Close up. The tape is meeting 3-1/2″ on both sides.

Place the ruler onto the triangle. Align the edge of the masking tape (3-1/2″ side) onto the stitched line as shown in the photo above.

Close up. Both tape and stitched line are meeting 3-1/2″ on the ruler.

Trim the block and cut the dog ears.

You can trim any size of the three-piece triangle squares easily with the regular quilting ruler! You just need the masking or painter’s tape.

I hope it’s helpful for you!

Happy Quilting!

BEACH DAY PATTERN!

Hi, my quilting friends!

I’m so excited to release this fun summer quilt pattern!!

I got an inspiration from the long beach island, New Jersey that we go every summer. The wave, white sand, the colorful umbrellas and beach towels. I wanted to express the fun, enjoyable, relaxing and peaceful time we had on the beach.

This pattern includes three sizes ( crib, small throw and large throw ), and the step by step instructions with a lot of diagrams.

Each block is quite simple to make. But you need to know the basic method of curved piecing to make the wave. For the umbrellas blocks, there are angles to trim. You don’t need to paper piece for that! You can just trim according to the instructions but also you can use the templates. The pattern includes the templates. I made the tutorials have to use the templates and you will have the access to the link once you purchase the pattern. It will save your work time. I love the useful tools!

I used Kona Cotton Solids from Robertkaufman fabrics for this large throw . It was fun to use these bright summer colors.

This version is small throw size using Ruby Star Society fabrics. This pattern works well with the bright prints too!

Also I added the cutting table for the scrappy version. So you can make any sizes from your scrap bin.

To celebrate, the new pattern release and Forth of July weekend, all the patterns in my Etsy shop is 30% OFF!!! No coupon code needed! This is the biggest sale, so no waiting!!!

The sale ends July 8th, 2020. (US EST)

RAINBOW SHOWER PATTERN

Hello!

It sounds crazy that I’m releasing another new pattern so soon!

I’m grateful that I had time to create this pattern in such a difficult time. It has been helpful to keep me calm and distracted from things happening in the world.

April showers bring May flowers.

My younger son told me when he saw me working on this quilt. I thought about “HOPE”. I felt like this poem reflects what’s happening in our world right now. Hopefully we can see the flowers someday soon!

Please let me introduce my new pattern RAINBOW SHOWER !!!

I got an inspiration from the rainbow and mist after heavy rain. The sun and blue sky are coming out from the cloud, you feel mist in the air and it reflects the rainbow colors. The images were in my mind but there was no way I could make MIST so I made the drops instead. I’m so excited how this one turned out!!!

This pattern includes three sizes (baby, small throw, large throw), the printable templates and a coloring page. This one is small throw and finishes at 42″x 60″. I used the solid fabrics from Kona Cotton Solid by Robert Kaufman.

Here is the color list that I used for the cover quilt.

This pattern is for advanced beginner. It’s simple curved piecing design but each quarter circle is a bit small to handle. Click here for a tip to piece small curves.

I did straight line quilting. Again I used masking tape instead of marking the lines. It’s my Go To Method officially! It’s just so easy for me to do and love the result!

It’s not only easy to do, also prevent the quilt top to stretch and the backing/ batting to shrink as I machine quilt. I used 1″ width masking tape for this but the painter’s tapes work well too.

Grid quilting for baby quilt. It’s 1.8″ apart… I know it’s strange but the painter’s tape that I had was 1.8″ width… It doesn’t matter! It gave nice texture to this quilt and I love it!

RAINBOW SHOWER digital pattern is now on Etsy shop! Use coupon code “RAINBOW20” to get 20% off on all my quilt patterns! Sale ends 5/3/2020. (US EST)

GRAB N’ GO – FPP PATTERN –

Hello!

I’m so excited to share my first foundation paper piecing pattern!

As I mentioned in newsletter, I didn’t plan to make this pattern. But it came into my mind during spring break. And I had so much fun making these blocks!

This pattern comes with three sizes which are 4″x 4″, 6″x 6″ and 8″x 8″ finished blocks. But it doesn’t include instructions nor teach you how to paper piece. You need to have basic knowledge of paper piecing but if you’ve done some before, then I think you will be just fine. It will be quite simple.

Foundation paper piecing is another great way to use your scraps! I have many small pieces that I couldn’t get rid of but I could use some of them for this project. It’s nice to see the poor looking scraps turned into something pretty!!

I used one fabric for the cup instead of two. So the foundation paper is for using two colors for the cup but it’s easy to change like this.

GRAB N’ GO pattern is on my Etsy shop now. It’s 20% off until 4/30/2020. (US EST) No coupon code needed. Hope you enjoy the sale AND making this pattern!

I used kona cotton solid by Robertkaufman for the top and Essex Yarn Dyed Classic Natural Woven (edited: Sorry! NOT linen) for the backing. Actually it’s not easy to find a perfect backing for me. Because I chose that colors and fabrics that I love first, then decided what to use for the back after. This time was a bit tough to find one so I picked neutral color + texture . This one worked great and I love it!!!

MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS PATTERN

Hello friends!

I’m pleased to announce that my first pattern in 2020 is finally ready! I wanted to have Christmas quilt pattern for a while. So I’m pretty exited!!

Okay, here is “MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS” quilt!

012_cover photo

It’s a big pixel ornament design. It has only one size which is 57″x 72″ finished. It’s large throw size.

So I divided it to the sections and it makes easier to piece and assemble the quilt top. I put a lot of colored diagrams in the instructions that help your process.

 

DSC03346

I used kona solids for this version. I love how it looks simple and clean.

I did straight quilting on the long arm machine. I rented APQS Millie at the local quilt shop Quilted Ewe. I’m not a long arm quilter but I sometimes rent the machine for fun. Millie has channel rocks that keeps the machine go straight so that it was pretty easy for me to do! And I love the result!

 

DSC03348

I added simple traditional blocks to it. So it’s not just piecing squares. I think it made this pattern more interesting to make!

 

DSC03358

Since the quilt top looks simple, I used this cute Christmas fabric to the backing. It’s “The north pole” by Stacy Iest Hsu, moda farics.

 

20191219_101917

This pattern also includes the scrappy version. I made it using my scraps and the fabrics that I didn’t know what to do with. It turned out really fun quilt!

 

20191220_131307

It will be a perfect quilt for Christmas!

So the title of this pattern is MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS. I wanted to have something from old time, musics, and movies. I had a different idea first but I couldn’t go for it. Then my husband said, ” How about MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS?” Immediately I thought “THAT’S IT!” I will remember the moment every Christmas.

 

DSC03363

Remembering the moment makes me want to have Christmas now! lol But we have to wait for a while. BUT we can start making the Christmas quilt now, right?

Please go and grab the pattern on my Esty shop! MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS pattern is 20% off until Sunday, February 2nd. (US EST) No coupon code needed.

TWO MASON JAR PATTERNS!

Hi!

I can’t believe how time fries! It’s already getting closer to end of October!

I released 2 patterns during the summer and I felt so burned out. So I took a break from making the patterns and the quilts in August. I was busy with kids anyway but I started getting some ideas for new patterns around early September. I spent more time to write the patterns and made some sample quilts. And here they are! I’m so excited to share the new quilts and patterns!

010_cover-photo.jpgThis is FARMHOUSE MASON JARS pattern. It’s small throw size.

I got an inspiration from the farmhouse style mason jars. There are so many cute jars with the burlap, strings and even painted. I thought it would be a fun project to make the mason jars with the fabrics!

 

DSC03110

I quilted with 3/4″ apart straight lines. It came out nicely.

 

 

DSC03120

This pattern comes with 3 sizes. Small throw, Large throw and Table runner. And different versions. The table runner in above picture is Two-tone heart version of table runner. I made it with Christmas theme fabrics.

 

 

DSC03116

Also this pattern includes the cutting table for the bonus mini block! It measure 4″x 6″ finished.

 

Here are the images of the versions you can make.

(From left) Throw small size, Throw small_crappy version, Throw small_two-tone heart version and Throw large size.

Also this pattern includes the cutting table for the scrap quilt! You will find the quantity of the parts you need to make for each size of quilt.

 

 

Another pattern is called HOME which is the table runner pattern.

DSC03118

This pattern looks very simple but has a lot of small parts. But the cutting table will be very helpful to organize the parts.

 

20191024_104109

This is my 2nd version of HOME quilt. The fabrics are from my stash. It was quite quick to make this one. I cut the parts, started piecing, and made the top at night. I quilted and bonded next morning. It is fun and quick project! And it could be a great for your home and also gift!

 

DSC03115

Also this pattern includes the bonus mini block too!

POMPOM GALAXY PATTERN

The releasing day of POMPOM GALAXY quilt pattern!

I’m so excited to share this pattern finally!

 

DSC02858

I chose these pretty 16 colors of Kona cotton from Robert Kaufman for this project. These blocks are made by simple half circles with a thin strip between. And added the stars on each corner as secondary pattern.

 

 

DSC02855

This is another version using the thin strips from my scraps. This one is really fun to make! The skinny strips that you don’t know what to do with turned into these pretty blocks! This is very original piece that you can make! This pattern includes a tip for making the scrappy version.

 

 

DSC02870

Love how they looked totally different, even though these are made from same pattern! These are MINI version which is 8-1/2″ finished block. You can make wall hanging and baby size using MINI block from my pattern.

By the way, I used Aurifil 40wt thread for straight quilting. It gave nice texture to the quilts and I love using it for machine quilting now!

 

DSC02873

Also I made the larger size of block which is called JUMBO version. It’s 11-1/2″ finished block.  You can make Baby, Crib and Throw size using JUMBO block from the pattern.

 

 

DSC02874

I love this rustic color version a lot! All the fabrics are from my stash and scraps except the background.
