2 New Patterns and Black Friday - Cyber Monday Sale!!!

 I am super excited this morning to share two brand new Quilt Pattern's in the Happy Quilting pattern lineup as well as having them ready just in time for this Annual Weekend Sale!!  (More on that further down ;)   

The first quilt is called Wishes and I just love how these stars twinkle!!!!    The quilt is made with  big blocks so you can make a queen size with just 16 blocks and it is super fun piecing, making it perfect for beginners and experts alike!!!

Wishes uses some basic piecing units along with a fun technique for making the lattice blocks, that has very little waste with a quick trim ensuring perfect piecing every time.  And there are very few points to worry about lining up as everything just floats in this quilt, and I just love that!!!

This version of Wishes is made using Balboa by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda Fabrics.    I love the prints and colors of this line, especially the purple!!!     But of course, Wishes would look amazing in any fabrics!!  The design is  Fat Quarter Friendly, so you can just grab a bundle and get cutting!!!!

And when it came time to quilt it I went all out.   I really wanted to make that center star just pop, so I did a Star of pebbles behind it and left the star un-quilted.  Isn't it just so fun!!!  I did ribbon curls and wishbones on the beams of light and then a lovely loose feather in the background.   It was just so fun to quilt and I was so happy that my favorite Pearl 402 So Fine thread blended perfectly in all the prints and background !!!  This one really was so super fun to quilt!!!! 

And I had so much fun making the first quilt, I just couldn't stop and decided to make up a lap size version as well :)    And isn't it just to cute for words!!!!

I thought it would be super fun to do a dark background and then low volumes for the prints!!!  I used Low Volume prints from Cookie Exchange by Sweetwater that I had saved and paired them with a lovely Charcoal background.   And don't they just pop!!!!  I love that this is Christmas too, because I think this design just works great for Christmas stars :)  

And I quilted it with all over swirls and just love how it almost adds a snow flurry to go with these Christmas Stars ;)    And I even used a scrappy Low Volume binding, so fun!!!!


Like all my patterns, Wishes has size options so you can make the quilt size that fits you ;)  You will find 5 size options, a Baby, Lap, Picnic, Twin, and a Queen size.  All the sizes are Fat Quarter Friendly., and all use a great big 21" block so the piecing goes nice and fast ;) 

So now onto Pattern Release 2 . . . Here is Scraptastic Stars!!!!  And I am just thrilled to be releasing this pattern because I love, love, love me some scrappy quilting!!!

Scraptastic Stars was originally I block I did a free pattern for way back here :)   For this new Happy Quilting pattern, I have increased the block size to 16" and added a wonderful Irish Chain setting to finish off the chain in the block. And isn't it just the perfect way to surround these blocks!!!   And I had such a great time doing all of the math for that Sashing Chain :)  I know it is weird, but I really like quilt math!!!   And the design even includes strip piecing in the chain to save you time piecing all of those little squares together.  

And I just love that Scraptastic Stars is all about busting scraps!!!  I increased the block size so that it is 2 1/2" square friendly as I know a lot of us like to cut our scraps to that size and it also makes it great for those little mini charm pre-cuts!!!   And you can even use scraps in the chain . . . I used a whole bunch of shades of white for the stars and chain and I love that it busted those scraps as well ;)

And when it came time to quilt it I went all out with the colors.  I picked out a rainbow of threads and changed colors for each block to really emphasis the rainbow of this quilt!!!  I quilted pebbles in the black, Arches in the white, and swirls in the colors :)  And I just love it!!!  And look at the beautiful quilty texture it made, so fun!!! 

And Scraptastic Stars also has size options so you can make the quilt size that fits you ;)  You will find 5 size options, a Baby, Lap, Picnic, Twin, and a Queen/King size.  Just start breaking your scraps into similar colors and see how many blocks you can come up with ;) 

 So now that you have seen the new quilts . . . Let's talk Patterns and Sales!!!

The Hard Copy and the PDF patterns of both Wishes and Scraptastic Stars can be found in my Etsy Shop, and like all my new Pattern Releases, It is on Special for 1 week!!!!  Until Friday, the 4th,  Scraptastic Stars and Wishes will be marked down!!!

Charming Baby Quilts Remix - Twinkle Twinkle

 Another Friday and another Charming Baby Remix!!!  This is quilt 5 of my Charming Baby Quilts Remix's and I am so excited to share it because I just love it!!!!!    I mean, stars and scraps, and panel centers. . . how can you not just love it :)  And here it is . . . the Twinkle Twinkle Remix quilt!!!!

Isn't this just so great!!!!  I know I already said I love it, but I really do just love, love, love it ;)   I remixed the original design by changing it to layer cake friendly instead of charm pack friendly.   So it is made the exact same way as the original, just on a larger scale.   So fun :)  This Twinkle Twinkle remix quilt finishes at 72" x 72" so it is perfect for snuggling up or using for a perfect picnic :)    And it just the exact same to piece as the original, just longer seams :)  (Pattern Adjustment's here)  

And speaking of the original, here is my Twinkle Twinkle quilt from Charming Baby Quilts.   This is such a great baby quilt, and it is so fun to pick an accent fabric that just pops on that scrappy background.   It will just be great in whatever size or color you make it!!!

For this Twinkle Twinkle remix, I used 2 Layer Cakes of Apricot and Ash by Corey Yoder.   And I was just thrilled when I found that her Apricot and Ash Panel would work perfectly for my Star Centers!!!!   They really just finish this quilt so perfectly.    But I still used the same amount of accent fabric in the pattern, even with the panel because I used the same accent fabric for the binding.  So many fabric options, so fun!!!  This remix uses 2 Layer Cakes and  2 yards of accent fabric.   And it is just so fun to make those scrappy stripped background, I love the scrappy look you get with pre-cuts!!!   

And when it came time to quilt it, I decided I on all over swirls.  It is just such a fun design and probally the one I can do the fastest as I have practiced it so much.   And I totally wanted to see just how fast I could go on my  new Long Arm and let me tell you, I could go fast!!!!   And oh my, did I have fun quilting this!!! 

And I just love all of the yummy texture it gave this quilt!!!   This is such a dense all over design so it really gives you incredible texture that just makes me want to curl up in this quilt with a good book!!

So do you want to make your own Charming Baby Remix Twinkle Twinkle quilt??  Just download this free  PDF Twinkle Twinkle Remix Instructions  document.  You will need a copy of my Charming Baby Quilts book to make the Remix as the download just includes the alternations and not the complete instructions.  You use the book and the download together ;)

And that is my Twinkle Twinkle Remix quilt!!!  I hope you love it just as much as I do and want to make one of your own, either in the lap size or baby size ;)  And if you do,  I would love to see it!!  You can email me a picture at or post it to social media with the hashtag #happyquiltingwithmc and/or #charmingbabyquilts ;)  I can't wait to see your Tinkle Twinkle Quilts!!!

And for easy reference. . . This Twinkle Twinkle Charming Baby Quilt has been added to my Charming Baby Quilts, All the Quilts, All the Details post ;)  It's a great place to bookmark to see everything Charming Baby Quilts all in one place!!

And there will be more Charming Baby Quilt Remixes to come, so be sure to pop back in soon.

New Projects for Jessi's Room

 So a little while ago, Jessica (my oldest daughter) decided she wanted a new look to her bedroom.  So with Grandma's help, we picked out a color called Pool and painted the room.  And once the room was painted "pool" , she  decided she was all in to the Coastal decorated room idea.   Grandma and her went' directly to the store and found some cute accessories and a beautiful costal picture to go above her bed.  And with everything redecorated, my sweet Jessi noticed something amiss.   The quilt just doesn't match anymore. You see where this is going . . . Yup, new Quilt and matching pillows are now on the To Do list ;)     So we went through the Stash and found these beautiful Kona Solids the new decor.   And all she had to do was pick a design for her bed.  

And after some "googling" this is what she landed on.   Here I though she was googling this Happy Quilting page and was going to pick a pattern that I have already made, nope :)  Instead, I get to do an improve curve queen side quilt!!     So ya, I might be processing this for just a bit.   I think I can use the same method I used for this table runner, just on a way bigger scale.  How funny is it going to be to have 5 cutting mats lined up, long enough to cut those improv cures on (tee hee hee)    

And with the bed plan, it was time to move onto the pillows.   Jessi said she didn't want everything Improv Curves because it is just to much, so I suggested something more Nautical which she liked and wouldn't you know what I got in my email the next day . . . . AccuQuilt is doing a new launch for their amazing Mariner's Compass die.   I showed Jessi and she loved it, could this be more perfect!!!!  

So of course, we immediately went to EQ8, found a Mariner's Compass block in the library, and started sketching up color layout ideas.   And I can tell already, this is where the hard part is going to be.   How to decide which layout to do???   Do you have a favorite, or maybe a favorite pair??


So my Mariner's Compass BOB die is on the way, and I can't wait for it to arrive so we can start making up some decorative pillows.   And my hope is with the pillows made, I will have more motivation to tackle the quilt ;)  Wish me luck!
