Together, they are a group of samples for my workshop (this Thursday!) at the Original Sewing Expo in Lakeland, Florida. (I’m not sure, but there might be a couple spots left.) We’re going to be putting together my Aerial pattern with some architextures.

Everything’s all kitted up and ready to go.

 

I found myself really enjoying getting these guys together. I’d designed the pattern long before I had my own fabric to sew with, and it was a fun treat to see how it all played out.

a quilt a day: sessoms + architextures.

I’ve always wanted to do a background color gradation with my Sessoms design. Using my architextures and coordinating Kona charm packs made it super simple. If you’ve already got the pattern, here are the additional specs to make your own.

 

Fabric Reqs :

– 1 architextures + 1 coordinating Kona solids charm packs (80 squares total)

– 1 1/2 yards (Robert Kaufman Essex Denim) for strips and border

– 1 1/2 yards for backing

– 1/2 yard (architextures green trees) for binding

 

Make according to the pattern, adapting quantities for 80 blocks. Lay out project with 8 blocks across and 10 blocks down.

Finished top : 36 1/2″ x 47″

 

Next up, I really really really want to make a Sessoms with architextures + Konas as the strips and a green (Kona Fern) for the background. I’ve been obsessed with this one (watch for it in the slide show) for a loooong time.

a quilt a day: neutral stripes.

Disclaimer: This quilt was a joint effort. My mom pieced it. I quilted it. She doesn’t even like paper piecing, and she managed to make it through. Well done, Mom!

 

We went the two-tone, neutral route with my Stripes pattern using the white hatch from architextures and kona meringue.
