Pop Pendants Quilt

Ann Haley created the most wonderful design using the choco color way of Pop Rox. Her Pop Pendants quilt is featured on p.74 of the Modern Quilts Unlimited Fall 2014 issue. AND we’re also kitting it in my Etsy store for $81 here, or $89 including the magazine here.

She has used black ric rac and beige embroidery floss to really make this special and we’ve included both in the kit.  She used paper piecing and Modern Quilts Unlimited has a web extra of a full size pattern, plus all the detailed instructions in the magazine.

I love this quilt, which works great as a wall hanging–a specialty of many of Ann Haley’s designs.  Enjoy!

Peppermint Pinwheels and The Carnival Quilt

Stacey Sharman of Peppermint Pinwheels did the most amazing Carnival Quilt with Pop Rox, though I am not surprised and you will see why when you see some of her other quilts here!

Founder of East Bay Modern Quilters (Formerly The East bay Modern Quilt Guild) and their annual show Stitch Modern, Stacey also teaches around Northern California and the San Francisco Bay area.  She can most often be found teaching at the fabulous A Verb for Keeping Warm, which is kind enough to host the last Tuesday of the month meetings of East Bay Modern Quilters.

She has a lovely and active Etsy shop Peppermint Pinwheels with baby play mats, digital patterns, baby blankets and more. And if you’re in the area, watch for her lecture and trunk show at The Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild April 18th meeting.

Hope you enjoy her Carnival Pop Rox quilt and views of some of her other yummy quilts!

Baby Rox Grow Quilt

So glad to finally show you the “Baby Rox Grow” quilt! Ann Haley designed this oh-so cute-quilt, I pieced the top, Angie Woolman quilted it and we got it to Quilt Market in Pittsburgh just in time. I love Ann’s quilt pattern designs and she’s coming out with a line of them we’ll be sure to keep you updated on.

It’s a quick modern baby quilt that has a measuring tape ribbon included for clocking an ambitious baby’s growth.  Ann Haley has experience writing quilt instructions for quilting books and magazines and has had several of her own projects published in magazines.

We’ve put together a kit to make this quilt at my Etsy store for $49.75, which includes the pattern, all the fabric for the quilt top and the binding, including the cotton measuring tape ribbon. Optional to get a coordinating Pop Rox fabric for the backing also.

I have included extra photos here to show off Angie Woolman‘ s quilting.  Enjoy!

The “Shattered Quilt” Needle in a Hayes Stack

Love this quilt!  Called Shattered, Tiffany Hayes of Needle in a Hayes Stack designed this new pattern using Pop Rox and I couldn’t be more impressed!  Tiffany and I met at Fall Quilt Market and talked about working on a project together. I was so happy to get my hands on this quilt for a day last week to take a good close look after it was displayed at spring Quilt Market.  The design is so strong and works so well with Pop Rox. It’s different, and I think pretty versatile for lots of different kinds of fabric. AND the quilting is amazing, done by Darla Hall. 

And after the pics of “Shattered” I picked some of Tiffany’s other patterns to show you.  She is a designer, quilter, lecturer and teacher, and she works with several fabric companies designing patterns using their fabric lines. Tiffany also did a nice blog post about her projects at spring Market here.  Just click on any picture to be taken right to the pattern!

Sew Sundays Baby Quilt

Well I have finished a small and supposedly simple baby quilt for some friends and a very special little one. I designed it in Adobe Illustrator as a sort of plaid using the Pop Rox fabrics with white to keep it modern and clean.  Why it wasn’t simple was because I was sewing it and quilting it all myself and am still finding my way. And this is my first non-improv piece (which made me want to do a crazy improv next) But in the end I let all the little errors fall as they may and it’s still a cute little quilt.

And it’s pretty easy to make one like this using any fabrics you want.  It’s 44×44 so you can use a backing selvedge to selvedge (I was dying to use the Pop Rox main border print so this quilt was an excuse to do that!).  And I used either 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 inches for each column on each side. Hmmm, let me see what order it was in.  The horizontal was 7,5,2,3,4,6,8,9 and the vertical was…6,5,2,3,4,7,8,9.  But you can do whatever you want. This would also be really fun using all prints or using different colors of solids.

What was really fun about this is that I got to use the whole collection on the white color way…er I actually didn’t use the pink/melon zig-zag, but it was originally going to be the border, but then I found out the baby in question was a boy…so I went all traditional and did blue. But you know I know his dad wears pink so I should have been braver.

Diana’s sampler quilt

On a visit to Diana McClun’s studio, she pulled out the sampler quilt she made with Pop Rox while teaching a class on beginning samplers–from her and Laura Nownes‘ book Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!!, chapter12.  It combines a variety of beginning sampler blocks that you can compose onto any configuration you want and the book gives 4 samples of compositions if you don’t want to design your own.  This one is a fifth.  I’ll have to try one some day!

She let me borrow it to take photos to show you so here it is!

Pattern Revolution does Pop Rox

I came upon Pattern Revolution by way of Carla Crim of The Scientific Seamstress, and so glad I did. A superb site dedicated to “Encouraging and Educating the Modern Sewist”  this site has the BEST photos, many courtesy of Suzanne Winter Photography. It is a site contributed to by a whole collective of women, so the projects and patterns are many and varied in both skill level and type. Focused on electronic pdf patterns, one can find patterns for baby, girls, boys, women, toys, bags and accessories, PLUS sewing tutorials and inspiration, fun sew alongs, and a featured designer series. Oh and did I mention, TONS of prizes and giveaways!

It’s well done and accessible to any sewist. And its cool-at least I think so.  Take a look at just the cutest ruffle dress and vintage romper done in Pop Rox.  And off course I will show you a sneak peek at other cool things you can find over there at Pattern Revolution!

Patchwork Posse

logo-266

Continuing our Pop Rox round-up and spotlight on some amazing creative people who have played with Pop Rox, today we look at Patchwork Posse. I met Becky several years ago at The Creative Connection Event where she was a panelist and participant.  I have loved collaborating with her and see her creative business grow. Not only will you find a plethora of great tutorials and patterns for quilts, bags, dolls and stuffed animals on her site Patchwork Posse, she also has a lot of fun things going on like quilt block round robins, and lots of free stuff!

AND if you’re a plushie lover like Becky, you must check out her site PlushiePatterns.com where she collects and publishes plushie patterns.  I think what really differentiates what you will find on Patchwork Posse is the sheer diversity and originality of the projects and tutorials, AND it’s so prolific. It is literally chock full of anything you would want to do or need to know.  If you are looking for fresh ideas for small projects this is the place. It’s one stop shopping–for quilting patterns, tips and tutorials AND sewing projects as well as appliqué and embroidery. It’s kind of a magic place to visit if you own a sewing machine.

So, take a gander at project tutorials using Pop Rox on Patchwork Posse, plus of course I chose a number of other great projects and articles to show you so you can get a really good idea of the many flavors of Patchwork Posse. Have a wander over there!
