New Pattern – Frosted Firs

Frosted Firs Title

I debuted Frosted Firs in yesterday’s Talk to Me Tuesday because I just couldn’t wait for the official pattern release!

20170103_172719

Frosted Firs was inspired by my family’s winter trip to Utah in January 2017. We rarely get winter weather in Austin, and snow was high on my adult children’s wish list. There is a point when they don’t really need “stuff” anymore, so we gave them a snowy experience instead!

Frosted Firs Sample Block

The Frosted Firs block can be paper pieced as a 6” block or as a 12” block.

Quilt instructions & fabric amounts are included in the document to make the 46″ x 64″ quilt shown here. Quilt layout uses the 12″ version of the block.

Bonus updated version of  Holiday House to mix & match with Frosted Firs.

Frosted Firs is a very versatile block and can be mixed & matched any way you choose for a variety of fun wintery finishes!

The pattern includes a 6″ & 12″ pattern for Frosted Firs, quilt instructions for a 46″ x 64″ quilt using the 12″ pattern, a coloring page, more idea suggestions, and an updated version of Holiday House as a bonus. The complete pattern is $4.95 and is available on either Craftsy or Etsy.

Bid for a Treasure!

Vintage Fan Quilt

In a continuing effort to help my kiddo with her college expenses, I’m selling some of my treasures.

One super special treasure is this vintage fan quilt. It’s hand pieced and hand quilted and estimated to have been made in the 1930s. It fell into my hands by chance and I’ve had it on display in my home ever since.

Vintage Fan Quilt

Because I could not decide on an asking price, it’s up for auction on ebay. The minimum bid is the absolute lowest I can take for it.

Bidding ends in just over 2 hours and I would love, love, love this to go to a good home with someone that would appreciate it!

It does have some age damage. If you’re interested, make sure you have a good look at all the photos in the listing before bidding.

 

Reminder! Pre-registration for Paper Piecing Vintage is now live!

Don’t forget to shop with small businesses and independent artists for the holiday season: Use coupon SHOPSMALL now through Dec. 15 in my Etsy Shop for 15% off your total purchase. Etsy is the only place you can find handmade items by yours truly! 😉

Crafting The Holidays

It’s officially the day after Thanksgiving here in the U.S.!

The leftovers are in the fridge and the countdown to gift giving for many people has begun.

Black Friday? Nah, I don’t do that. I advocate a Handmade Holiday season!

Want to shop handmade? Etsy is a great place to start. There are loads of talented crafters, makers and artisans selling their wares.

You can even find a few goodies made by yours truly. I’ve got quilted items I made myself, magazines my patterns have been featured in and I’m regularly adding scrap bags of fabric from my own stash that are perfect for paper piecing (for a limited time, of course…even Tribbles stop breeding eventually!).

Here are a couple of the goodies currently in my Etsy shop:

Sweet Skating Sue
Sweet Skating Sue is just $19.99 and comes ready to hang.
OR you can make her yourself for free.
Never paper pieced? This $3 tutorial includes complete instructions and the pattern to make Sweet Skating Sue yourself!

In A Castle + Fairy Tale Femmes
Fairy Tale Femmes + In A Castle, $99.95
This sweet quilt is 30″ x 37″ and come ready to display or snuggle. Includes a sleeve for hanging.
OR You can buy the Fairy Tale Femmes and In A Castle patterns and make your own!

Find more ready-to-gift items right here in my Etsy shop!

Sewhooked: Jumping In With Both Feet

Grandma's House Quilted Potholder Set
Grandma’s House Quilted Potholder Set

It’s been a while since I talked about my business. I post a lot of crafts and patterns and, of course I talk about Harry Potter (no, no…really!?).

Sewhooked is not just the name of my site and business. It’s become a community of crafty people that are near and dear to me. As you probably already know, I design and sell quilt patterns. What you may not know is that I also sell hand crafted items, including custom-made buttons and hard-copies of my patterns on Etsy.  All of my available patterns are ready for instant purchase and PDF download in my shop here on Sewhooked.  For quilt shop owners, my patterns are also available for wholesale purchase. Email me for details.

After a year of working on Sewhooked part time, I’ve decided the time has come to try my hand at running my business full-time. Up until now, I’ve worked on Sewhooked whenever I have time, squeezing in minutes here and there between other things.

At the end of the summer, all that will change. I’m leaving my part-time job at the quilt store where I work and am going to take a session off from teaching to build my inventory and focus on my business. There have been some changes in my life recently which make me feel the time is right to work hard, to work longer and to make Sewhooked everything I want it to be.

What can you look forward to? Well, more patterns, for sure! Creating patterns is my first love, and there are lots of ideas rolling around in my brain, just waiting for their chance to make an appearance. I’m tentatively planning a Block of the Month quilt for my shop next year, which I would love to be guided by those that would like to participate. More on that once the Project of Doom has wrapped up.

There will also be new hand-crafts available through Etsy. After a brief hiatus, Custom 1.5″ Buttons are back, including optional graphic design services. Soon, I’ll be adding grab bags of fabric from my crazy-huge scrap stash, as well as limited edition cards featuring photos of some of my quilts.

Photos in this post include some of the items currently available for sale through Etsy. PDF Downloads are here.

What kind of quilt patterns are you looking for? What handcrafts would you be interested in seeing on Etsy (keeping in mind that I do not sell items made from my Harry Potter and other fandom patterns out of respect to the authors/creators)?

I’d love to hear from you!

My Friends Make Stuff 2010

You may remember Handmade For The Holidays 2009, where I talked about my crafty friends that make and sell handmade awesomeness.

I started posting this list originally on Livejournal back in 2007 and each year I collect names from personal friends who are crafty and awesome, making all kinds of great things to sell. This year, I’m including an author friend because he is a very talented artist and self-published, which is, of course, awesome!

I personally own stuff made by everyone on this list. It’s ALL amazing, and made with skill and love, and in the case of the books, beautifully illustrated and a joy to read.

Also, I will happily continue to add the names of my friends to this list until the end of 2010, so if you should be on here and aren’t, just drop me an email!

Also be sure to check out my shop and etsy store for quilting, paper pieced patterns, crochet hats and buttons!

Listings are in alphabetical order by first word. 🙂
