  • Warm Up Your Home for Valentine's Day

    Granny Square Pillow for All Year Long

    "One of my favorite holidays is Valentine's Day - the candies, colors and all around feeling of love. My home starts to feel a bit empty and not as colorful during the time after the holidays when I put all of my Christmas decorations away. Instead, of filling my home with hearts for Valentine's Day, I like to take a different approach to decorating by using some of the symbolic colors of the holiday (red and pink). 

    By using just solids, you can create a project you can definitely leave out all year long. I chose a selection of Robert Kaufman Kona solids, but feel free to change up your liking or add in some fun patterned fabrics as well." - Janome Maker Nicole Daksiewicz or Modern Handcraft.

    Nicole made this wonderful pillow using the Horizon Memory Craft 9400QCP. Make yours for this Valentine's Day and feel free to leave it up all year long!

  • Stained Glass Block Mini Quilt

    1/4/2017

    By Joanna Marsh

    “If you have a case of the winter blues, this mini quilt will be a great way to brighten up your day! Select your favorite colors (bright colors or gem tones will work wonderfully with this project) along with a fabric in black or dark grey to separate the “glass panels”. You can opt to just make the block without quilting it to be hung in a window that gets lots of light to mimic stained glass. The quarter inch piecing foot will make this project an absolute breeze to complete, so grab your fabrics and get sewing!” – Joanna Marsh of Kustom Kwilts and Designs 

    Create Joanna’s beautiful stained glass mini quilt by following along her directions. It is a beautiful piece to add to your house, office or anywhere else!
