Charleston by Revive - Blog Tour

Welcome Blog Hoppers! Timeless Treasures has a neat new division that is breathing new life into the textile designs of our past, called Revive. Their debut collection is inspired by all the sass and geometry of the lively Art Deco era. When I studied architecture my favorite time period was the 1920's and 1930's, so this line really is a knockout for me! It was a time of bold colors, lavish ornamentation and fabulous flapper dresses.

One of the fun parts of designing quilt patterns is mocking them up in lots of different options! Timeless Treasures send their new lines out to designers to get a few quilt mockups made. It is a great way to get an idea of how the fabric looks in use!

We have said it before and we will ay it again, our all-time favorite thing about being a pattern designer, is seeing your versions of our patterns! Seeing the different color choices and your creative twists makes our job completely worth it! Here are a few projects that have popped on to my radar from Instagram and Facebook
Elsie Stone's Diamond Alley Quilt

Elsie Stone sent us pictures of her gorgeous Diamond Alley quilt and we had to share them! She used assorted red fabrics for the diamonds, ranging from light pink to dark maroon, and a crisp white for the background. She made the Diamond Alley quilt pattern larger by adding 2 more vertical rows, making a total of 39 diamonds, and large white borders that float the diamonds.

Happy Easter! Today we are sharing this gorgeous Diamond Alley Quilt made by Lori Brewster. Lori made this quilt to give to her mom on her birthday! Isn't that so sweet! Lori used thirty-nine different Kaffe Fassett floral fabrics for the diamonds.

This gorgeous version of Diamond Alley was made by Regina Parys. She chose a medley of blue and turquoise fabrics for the diamonds and a solid white for the background. This combo makes me think of the Mediterranean.

Quilt Market prep was a whirlwind. We made a few projects that were displayed around Quilt Market in other booths. Here are the projects we had scattered around. It was fun to make the same pattern multiple times in different fabric lines.

So we are back in Colorado with lots to do and smiles on our faces. Our first Quilt Market could not have gone better! We made lots of contacts, met so many wonderful people and had a blast. Our feet are a little tired, but it was so worth it!

We have some amazing friends. They are always there to help! Whether we need proof-readers (always!), patterns tested or an actual quilt made, someone is always there! We bit off a lot for our first Market and a few friends offered to help us make some quilts we promised.
