Pillow Fight Finals!!!!

After weeks of fun Pillow Fight's we have made it to the Finals, and I am honored for my Low Volume Chevron pillow to be in the Finals!!!!   This fun little game is in celebration of Edyta Sitar's new Pillow Talk Book which is jam packed with pieced pillow goodness!!!

So now it is time to Vote for the finals ;)   Be sure and  pop over to the Jolly Jabber and vote for your favorite pillow this week ;)  It's me and Mr. Domestic and it should be a fun showdown for Pillow Champion ;) 

I choose to make Edyta's Chevron Pillow but I added some 2 1/2" patchwork squares in a low volume rainbow.  I had been saving those squares for just the right project and they sure shined in this pillow!!!    I quilted it with some straight line V quilting to emphasis the chevron.  And I just love it!!!

And that is it for today ;)  I am hoping to do some serious quilting this weekend and widdle down my works in progress ;)  

Thanks for popping in today and I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

Tutorial Throwback Thursday - Bonnie Rose

With St. Patrick's Day fast approaching, I decided it would be fun for the Tutorial Throwback  Thursday to share some Irish Chain Quilts ;)  You all know I love Irish Chain Quilts, and have already shared the basic Single Scrappy and Triple Scrappy versions . . . so today, I thought it would be fun to share a twist on an Irish Chain Quilt . . . So for today's throwback, we are going back 5 years to the Bonnie Rose Quilt!!!  And even the name just makes you get excited for St. Paddy's Day ;)

Bonnie Rose  is a wonderful twist on a single Irish Chain Quilt.     And the quilt is super easy to make, so it will go together in a jiffy.   There are basic snowball blocks and even strip piecing for the 9 patches ;)    It finishes at 63"x 75" so it makes a great snuggle size quilt and would be a fantastic wedding present.   In fact, that is exactly what this quilt was gifted for ;)  

And I love that the center snowballs really allow you to take advantage of large scale prints.  It is often hard to put these in quilts as you don't want to chop them up all tiny, but this Bonnie Rose quilt really let's you highlight those beautiful prints!!!   And then you can use all of the smaller prints in the line that coordinate for the chain.  Just perfect!!! 

And anything wavy and rounded is perfect for quilting the Bonnie Rose quilt.  I choose to do a feathered swirl as I love how it just flows.    But any swirl or feather or combination of them would just look so pretty on this chain quilt ;)     Oh, and this quilt is put together with basic sashing, so if you haven't tried that before, this is a great way to learn ;)  

And that is my Bonnie Rose Quilt!!!     I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday!!!    To make your own Bonnie Rose quilt  just click on any of the project name links for the free step by step tutorial.    And when you are done,  I would love to see your Quilts!!  You can email me a picture at, post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc ;)  I can't wait to see your Bonnie Rose Quilts!!!! 

Thanks for popping in today!!!   I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!!

Thank you so much for all of the Nordic Nights Pattern Love!!!  Some of you have already sent pictures of your fabrics and others have already started cutting, so fun!!!   I am so excited to see all of your Nordic Nights Quilts!!!!!

And today I am excited to share some more Nordic Nights fun !!!!    If you live in the Utah Area, I will be teaching Nordic Nights, Desert Rose, and a few new upcoming patterns (sneak peaks!!!) at several retreats in Utah.

First up . . .

The  Utah Quilting and Sewing Marketplace is so fun!!  This is my third year teaching here and I just love it ;)   And they even provide the sewing machines so you don't have to lug yours along and you get to try out lots of great new machines!!!   I will be teaching 4 classes, including Nordic Nights, Desert Rose, and two new patterns (pop over for a sneak peek!!!)   I will also be doing a Trunk Show of my new Charming Baby Quilts book and I am so excited for that ;)    This is going to be such a great retreat, and it is right close to downtown salt lake, so super convenient for travel!!!

And then in the summer I am teaching at the Panguitch Quilt Walk on June 10th - June 13th!!!  This is a wonderful retreat right next to beautiful Bryce Canyon, and if you have never visited this National Park, pairing it with a Quilt Retreat is just perfect!!!!   Again I will be teaching my Nordic Nights and Desert Rose  class and I am so excited!!!  

And then it turns to fall, and Utah is absolutely gorgeous!!!  And in September, I am teaching at back to back retreats, and it is going to be incredible!!!  I am teaching at the Utah Quilt Guilds Quilt Fest in Layton Utah on Sept. 16th and their registration will be open soon.
