Featured Kit - Pixie Party Diamond Double
Join in the glitz and glamour of Pixie Party’s Diamond Double. With its dramatic, interlocking lines, Diamond Double resembles the look of a stunning garden maze. Framed by a series of simple pieced borders, the quilt features fabrics from Jinny Beyer’s popular selling Malam Batiks. Diamond Double is a large throw size finishing at 65-1/2 by 77-1/2 inches. The most surprising aspect of this eye-catching design is that it is achieved with a single block that is simply twisted and turned. With everything pre-cut, even the sub-cuts, Diamond Double can come together in less than a day, making this diamond true to the saying, “diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” The Pixie Party kits are beautifully made and packaged in the USA. The Diamond Double kit comes completely pre-cut, even the background and subcuts. The border strips and binding strips are even pre-cut to the length and width of the quilt. See how Diamond Double comes together in the video tutorial.

My Enchanted Garden Block of the Month
Back by popular demand! This beautiful applique quilt designed by Gretchen Gibbons is the featured quilt in Gretchen's newest book, My Enchanted Garden. The My Enchanted Garden quilt combines cottons, batiks, and hand dyed wools for the appliques to give your quilt added depth, richness, and contrast in texture and color. Our My Enchanted Garden Block of the Month kits will have the exact hand dyed wools used in the original quilt pictured plus a variety of cotton prints and batiks in colors similar to the original. Each month you will receive a portion of the required fabrics for the quilt top. Your finished quilt will measure 60 1/2" x 72 1/2".
Garden Home is a lovely quilt that combines fused applique, hand embroidery & piecing. The applique blocks depict homes in a garden setting complete with cats, chickens, flowers and birds. Our block of the month will feature the exact fabrics used in the original quilt pictured which are from Kathy's Patchwork Garden collection from Moda fabrics. All applique pieces are laser cut with Soft Fuse fusible attached. No need to trace, cut out, or turn the edges.
Our Color Love block of the month features Nancy Rink's new-fashioned palette of mid-bright textures and geometric motifs, anchored by a deep blue ground Jacobean-inspired floral. With subtle print motifs like plaids, fireworks, chubby flowers and various textures, set on a background of soft muted solids, Color Love is geared to quilters who crave something fresh and flexible. There are two versions of the same quilt: an applique version and a pieced version. Your monthly kit will allow you to choose to make either the applique or pieced blocks or a combination of both!
