If You're Ever in Dodge City...

I made this quilt for a blog hop
and
 at the time, someone suggested it would look great at a coffee shop.



Today, I am happy to say Perk Power
has a new home!


You can see it at


in
Dodge City, Kansas.

My favorite place to go for breakfast, lunch, and a cuppa is now
REALLY
my favorite spot in Dodge City.

So, if your ever here and can't visit me, at least go by and grab a cup of joe.

(I'm calling this my Friday finish because I've been meaning to shout this out for a long time!)

I do have another finish to show this week 
and 
it's coming home after a trip to Quilt Market.



The full free pattern and tutorial is over on the Thermoweb blog.

Big Top Circus Pillow Cover for Quilt Market -Blend Fabric Quilt as you Go Free Pattern

I was thrilled when Blend Fabrics asked if I would design a pillow cover to display at Quilt Market 
and 
now I can share it with you.



The fabrics are Calliope by designer, Maude Asbury.  



Step right up to the big top with a circus tent full of balancing elephants, juggling seals and floating unicorns.  



The curtains open and close.
To create this super fun pillow cover I used a quick quilt as you go method with
 HeatnBond High Loft Fusible Fleece and then appliqued with  Heat N Bond Lite.



The full tutorial and FREE pattern is over on Thermoweb's blog today.

My grandma loved the circus and now that I’m going to be a gLamma, I can’t wait to share this pillow with the new baby.

Stacked Pumpkins Wall Hanging

I just love working with low volume prints or using unexpected colors.
Do you?

I created the Stacked Pumpkins Wall Hanging pattern with this in mind.


This 8" x 16" wall hanging is perfect for the front door for fall.
I just love her fabric designs.
The pattern is raw edge applique with Heat N Bond Lite.
I free motion quilted this one with meandering and leaves.

The pattern is free in my pattern shop HERE for 1 week
so hurry!

You'll want to get this one finished before those Thanksgiving guests arrive.


Hope you are staying warm, it's been so cold and cloudy here...

Pumpkin Palooza - Decorate for Fall with Two Quick Projects from One Quilt Pattern with HeatnBond EZ Print Lite

Don't you love the new colors of fall?  Fall decorating doesn't have to be only orange, brown, and yellow in color anymore.  With pumpkins showing up in all different colors, it's fun to add aquas, greys, and whites to compliment and add a modern flair to traditional fall decor. 



 Today, I'm over on the Thermoweb blog to share a pumpkin applique quilt block pattern using HeatNBond EZ Print Lite and 2 quick projects using the quilt block and the new fabric collection from Windham Fabrics, Meriwether.


This pattern is so easy with HeatnBond® Lite EZ Print!
Just print the patterns right on to the adhesive and cut them out.


All of the details and the tutorial are over at Thermoweb.

UPDATE:  I've received several emails that the pattern download is not working over at Thermoweb.
You can find the full PDF at my Craftsy Store HERE.
