My friend Rachel over at @wren.collective released her very first quilt pattern: Ivy League! I tested the pattern and really love this pattern, and all the different variations I have seen so far from other testers too!
I made the baby size version of this pattern, and it finished at 39″ x 43″, but the pattern also includes a Wall Hanging size, and a Throw Size. To see lots of awesome colorways and the different sizes of this quilt, check out Wren-collective’s Ivy League pattern release blog post.
Last week I shared a blog post showcasing my “Wiggling Quilt” from the book “Modern One-Block Quilts” and it kicked off a quilt pattern book review blog post series! Who doesn’t love a good blog series?! If you want to read about the fun and quirky book “Modern One-Block Quilts” and see cute pictures of an adorable baby girl floral quilt, click here!
Today’s stop on the Quilt Book Review Series is a book that has been around for a little while but will always be a winner in my eyes! My mom got Simply Retro by Camille Roskelley a few years ago and I have been looking through these beautiful patterns ever since! I’ve actually made FOUR baby quilts already from patterns in this amazing book, so you can definitely say I got my money’s worth! (That is a joke since I stole my mom’s book… thanks mom, you’re the best!)
Recently AccuQuilt has invited me into their influencer program in order to increase the precision and speed for cutting fabrics for my quilts. They sent me the Ready. Set. GO! which included the 8” GO! Qube and GO! Strip Cutter-2½” (2″ Finished), which are both incredible with So. Many. Possibilities!
I’ll be honest, I was a little intimidated at first! To help me take the dive into learning how to use the new machine, I invited my mom over to help (that’s what moms are for, right?!). My mom (@JaneJustSew) has had the AccuQuilt GO! Baby for a while so I knew she’d be super helpful, and as always, we had a ton of fun together. Now, I know not everyone has someone to ask for help, so I’m writing this post to share my learning experience with all of you!
