Paperie Blog Tour


** sorry, this giveaway is officially closed!**

Hi There!  If you're here for the Paperie Blog Tour.... Welcome!!!  Thanks for stopping by!


 
I was super excited when Amy told me she was going to start designing fabric. I met her in person a couple years ago through our mutual friend Amy.  We are lucky to live closeby, so we've been meeting up ever since.

I got to work with Paperie earlier when I made Amy a couple things for her booth at last year's fall market.  Without question, I just had to make another quilt.  



I used every Paperie print as well as some solids. My favorite print is definitely Manuscript - the navy one.  The pattern is Cozies Flannel.  I chose this pattern because it reminds me of the Irish Chain pattern.  Irish Chain is one of my favorite patterns. So simple yet stunning.

This beauty finishes at 54" x 54".  A perfect quilt for late night TV watching.  :) 




quilted it using straight lines both horizontally and vertically. I kinda love it and I'm definitely going to make this quilt again.  This is also a great pattern if you are just learning to quilt.    

Be sure to check out other awesome Paperie projects by these amazing makers.

  4. Jennifer, your quilt is beautiful--and in your photo it looks like soft ribbons of fabric woven together (you know, that kind of weaving we did in grade school with paper!). I'm a beginner, so I stick to small things like table runners, coasters, mini quilts at the moment. Very glad to hear that this is an easy pattern :)

  27. My all-time favorite quilt pattern is the log cabin. Not very glamorous, but it is the one I return to again and again.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sunny, my favorite quick things to sew/quilt are fabric baskets, 6"X10" or a little bigger. Perfect for holding kitchen coffee pods, or notions or fat quarters in the sewing room . Cozies Flannel sounds so perfect, warm and exactly whats in order to cuddle up late night. Thank you for sharing in Paperie, what a subtle collection.

  39. I have so many things that I like to sew and am always making something new and different. It's kind of like my cooking...I rarely make the same recipe twice. Life is too short to make the same thing over and over. I do prefer smaller quilts, like baby or crib sized just because they are easier to manage. I'm up for anything!
