Picnic Time Pillow Tutorial

To celebrate us being back in Salt Lake City photographing a new book for Lori Holt, we are throwing back to two weeks ago when we were in Salt Lake City filming with Riley Blake! We loved seeing the Riley Blake office and warehouse and filming a block tutorial from the Picnic Time Quilt which we turned into a pillow!

Here’s what you’ll need:

And that’s it! Be sure to follow along with the video tutorial by Kimberly and Cindy Cloward of Riley Blake as they take you through making the pillow step by step.

Click here for the Picnic Time Pillow Video Tutorial

And if you want to make a quilt to accompany this adorable pillow, we have a matching Picnic Time Quilt Kit and Backing Set to help you make the full quilt!

Happy Quilting!

2018 FQS Summer Book Club – Betsy Chuchian

We are now on our third week of our 2018 Summer Book Club! This week’s featured author is a historical quilt expert, teacher, quilt designer, Moda fabric designer, and of course book author, Betsy Chutchian. We got to know her during the process of writing the Classic & Heirloom Quilt Book with her, and it is fascinating to hear how quilting is woven into her own family history and how she draws on that for inspiration.

The Classic & Heirloom Quilts Book is Betsy Chutchian’s first book with It’s Sew Emma. The book combines 1800’s inspiration with current sensibilities for eight opulent quilts! You can view more of the quilts in the book, as well as hear from Betsy, in this video.

We even have some coordinating patterns to go along with this book! The Round Up Quilt, Bear Tracks Quilt, and Sunshine and Shadow Quilt Patterns go great with the gorgeous, 1800s inspired quilts in the Classic & Heirloom Quilts Book.

Winterville Quilt Along/Contest

Feel at home with the Winterville Quilt by Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms! This quilt is super versatile and brings the feeling of home to wherever it’s displayed! We are partnering with Camille to do the Show Us Your Ville Winterville Quilt Along/Contest! We would like you to make the House Block from the Winterville Quilt into a project. You can keep it as a block, a mini quilt, a pillow, or a creation of your own!

Camille made hers into a mini quilt:

And Kimberly made hers into a tablerunner:

The great thing about the Winterville Quilt is that it is very Fat Eighth friendly! Kimberly made her tablerunner with a fat eighth bundle and 3 yards of background (more background coming soon!) and 5/8 yard binding.

We even had some of our wonderful sample makers and bloggers make projects out of their blocks to give all of you some inspiration on what projects can be made with the House Block from the Winterville Quilt!
