Paisley Rose Yardage Is Shipping To Shops Now!
Last summer I introduced the Paisley Rose collection. It has blooming roses with paisleys in a luscious palette that can really bring a room to life. I remember telling people last fall, "Just when the winter blues set in, Paisley Rose will be arriving in shops to cheer you up."...and that time is now! I hope this collection brings a smile to your face as it does mine.
This post is a recap of the quilts and other projects I have made with the collection along with links. I hope you are inspired to visit your favorite online or local shop soon!
Day Tripper is a fun Jelly Roll friendly quilt. The borders add a fun element of design and it finishes at 68" x 82". The pattern is written by Natalie Crabtree. Check your local quilt shop for the printed version or the PDF can be found here.
I have a soft spot for scrappy quilts and Falling Stars is a perfect pattern for you happy scrappy folks. It is fat quarter friendly and would work with any fabric collection. It's composed of four different blocks and has two size options available. This pattern is also written by Natalie Crabtree. You can find the PDF here.
You can't get any more classic than log cabins and stars which makes Cozy Cabin a wonderful pattern by Modernly Morgan. It is fat quarter friendly and available in three size options. Click here for the pattern.
Homespun is another fat quarter quilt by Modernly Morgan that's scrappy and goes together quick. This pattern includes three sizes along with two layouts for some fun creative options. Click here for the pattern.
Once I designed the paisley print for this collection I immediately knew that I would be treating myself to new pajamas. Who doesn't love a pair of fancy pajamas? The Carolyn Pajama Pattern by Closet Core is great. You can always make just the pants/shorts for a quick sew but I encourage you to take the time and make the complete set with piping at least once! You are worth it. Click here for the pattern.
The Olive Case
I feel a little out of my element when sewing pouches and bags but that doesn't mean I'm not going to try. I wanted a new makeup bag and decided to make this Olive Case by Minki Kim. She always has the cutest little bags and pouches so check her out! I found the video clips for each step very useful and quilting small projects like this is fun too. I'll definitely make more of these now that I know how! Click here for the pattern.
Improv Quilt Blocks
Another project I have going to right now...along with many others...is this fun improv quilt from Sujata Shah's Cultural Fusion Book. Even though I haven't made a lot of improv quilts, it is probably my favorite style. I love the unplanned process and not worrying about matching seams. It's just so free to create this way and I have enjoyed experimenting with this style.
Here are a few blocks from the Crossroads project. Click here to find Sujata's book on Amazon!
Coordinating Bella Solids
Here are the coordinating Bella Solids that you may use for planning your Paisley Rose projects. This cute little heart block is actually from a coaster project by All People Quilt! Click here for the project!
I hope you enjoy this collection! Please tag me on Instagram with @cmanningsews. I would love to see what you're making.
