New Patterns from It’s Sew Emma

Happy Wednesday!  Today we get to share two new patterns from It’s Sew Emma!  This season, we named our patterns after places we adore in our hometown, and here are the first two to release…

 Hyde Park

Hyde Park is made for celebrations and soirees!  Full of zig-zaggy, star-shiny goodness, we have nothing but happy thoughts for Hyde Park.  Select a few favorite prints to create this beauty!  Our original is made in red and coral prints The Front Porch by Sherri & Chelsi.  You can also bring in color contrast for an equally awesome effect, such as this mint and red version in Hank & Clementine by Susan Emory.  Hyde Park finishes at 68.5″ x 72.5″, a perfect size to lounge and cuddle with!

Hyde Park is perfect for celebrations!

Walnut Creek

Walnut Creek is reminiscent of a vintage quilt discovered in a chest in the attic, pieced and quilted over long hours by candlelight.  That’s not the story of how we came by this design, but it sure sounds romantic, huh??  In any case, the scrappy look and multiple focal features of this quilt always gives you something to study!  There are so many gorgeous designs for your eye to follow, it will never get old.  The pattern is available in Crib, Lap, Twin and Queen sizes.  Our main quilt is made in New Hope by Jo Morton, and for a lighter, sweeter flavor, we have also shown it in Sequoia by Laundry Basket Quilts.

Walnut Creek ISE-189
Walnut Creek hearkens to the days of hand pieced quilts and lovingly kept scraps.

 

Both are available now, so let us know what you think.  If you make any of these quilts, be sure to tag @itssewemma as well on Instagram and Facebook!

New It’s Sew Emma Impressions Patterns, Part 2

Whew, it’s been a busy few weeks, but we’re back to do the final round up of new patterns by It’s Sew Emma for the Fall!  (Click here to see our post on Part 1 of the new patterns.)  This set of four patterns is part of our Impressions patterns, which use our Orange Peel template set.  If you don’t have the templates, you can still use the templates printed in the patterns.  So with that squared away, here are Herald, Lovey Dovey, Peony and Wisteria!

Herald quilt pattern

Herald is a fun one, alternating background colors in the blocks for a checkerboard effect.  That, and the slight twist of the orange peels, creates a very pleasing optical effect!  In the black and white range of Delilah, the variations are highlighted even more.  Herald comes in three size options.

Lovey Dovey Impressions quilt pattern

The inspiration for Lovey Dovey is written all over this quilt!  Who doesn’t love those classic X’s and O’s?  In red and pink, it almost feels vintage, but adding a colored background and illustrated prints, like these in Dear Diary, keeps it sweet but adds some modern flair.  Lovey Dovey comes in three size options.

Peony Impressions quilt pattern

This Peony isn’t your typical garden variety, but you will want them blooming everywhere!  It is undeniably cute, but using prints from The Elm Park Collection lends an elegant softness to the happy petals.  Peony comes in three sizes.

Wisteria Impressions quilt pattern

With all the gracefulness of Wisteria, using different sizes of the Orange Peel templates gives the effect of climbing ivy!  We love it in the two-color combo of blues, but the delicateness of Dollhouse harmonizes well, and the smoky background gives it some pop.  Wisteria comes in one size.

That is a wrap for the latest It’s Sew Emma patterns!  We hope you enjoyed these tidbits and ideas, and let us know what you think.

New Patterns from It’s Sew Emma, Part 1

Hi everyone!  We have somehow slipped into September, which means two things for us… 1) Our Cake Mix Quilt Book is coming! (read about it here) and 2) we have new patterns out!  There are eight new patterns total, but today we’ll cover these four – Trifles, Rose Quarter, Dapper and Set Sail.

P.S. We are giving away a two full set of our eight new patterns, one through our It’s Sew Emma Facebook page and one through our It’s Sew Emma Instagram!  Enter through the Rafflecopter on our Facebook page, and follow us on Instagram to be automatically entered to win.  If you already follow us on Instagram, you are already entered!  Giveaways end Monday, 9/11 at 12:30 CST.  Good luck!

Trifles quilt pattern
First up is Trifles.  You cannot go wrong with this pattern, and it truly is a classic!  It uses Jelly Roll strips, and whether you use a bold collection like Bloomsbury or a softer line like La Conner, it always works into something beautiful.  Trifles offers Crib, Lap, Twin and Queen size options.

Rose Quarter quilt pattern
Rose Quarter is a pretty little thing with an old-fashioned feel, which makes it well-suited for First Romance, but you can also give it a modern edge with vivid hues like Spirit Animal.  You can either use the included templates or the Impressions Orange Peel template set to create these sweet blocks.  There is a neat twist to it, if you are using the Orange Peel template set, but you’ll have to see for yourself what it is!  Rose Quarter offers Crib, Lap and Queen size options.

Dapper quilt pattern
Dapper is punchy and playful, easy and exciting!  We love the secondary designs you get from the background as well.  Choose fabrics with strong contrast, like Biscuits & Gravy or Shimmer On, for best effect.  Dapper offers Crib, Lap, Twin and Queen size options, and it’s Fat Quarter Friendly too!

Set Sail quilt pattern
Lastly, Set Sail takes us on a voyage of discovery.  Simple blocks become cresting ocean waves, and as you can see, different color palettes make all the difference!  A monochrome set like Ahoy Me Hearties creates a calm, geometric masterpiece, while bright tropical tones like Reef paint an entirely different picture!

Thanks for joining us today, and remember that all these patterns are available as downloadable PDFs too.  We’ll be posting Part 2 of our new It’s Sew Emma releases soon, so come on back very soon!

NEW BOOK: Cake Mix Quilt Book Volume One

If you ask us what our favorite new goodies for 2017 are, there’s no question that it is the Cake Mix Recipe Pads from Moda Fabrics!  We’ve hosted a fun Bake-Off, we have released videos with Carrie Nelson on how to use each Recipe Pad, we came out with Cake Mix pads for our exclusive FQS Jolly Bars, but there is still more Cake Mix goodness baking up in our kitchen!  Today we’re giving you a whiff of the yummy quilts in It’s Sew Emma’s upcoming Cake Mix Quilt Book: Volume One!  There are now eight different Cake Mix pads, and The Cake Mix Quilt Book has two designs for each.  That’s a total of 16 tasty quilts to try!

All you will need for each quilt is two Moda Layer Cakes (one print and one solid), a Cake Mix Recipe Pad, and fabric for your sashing, borders and binding.  Using Cake Mix pads keeps your piecing fast and accurate, so these will go much faster than you think, and all 16 quilts boast a ton of WOW factor.  And these quilts range in size from Lap to Queen, so you have plenty of size options as well!

Here is a quick look at some of the blocks you will be making in this book…
