Quilting Through 2011

Quilting has become popular this past decade. From art quilts with hand painted fabrics to new spins on old fashion quilt blocks of pioneer days, it is a fun and creative outlet. I plan to have various quilt patterns on this blog throughout the year. Most will be simple and can be made in a day.

To start off, I wanted to show you a project by SSI that I think is darling. SSI (South Sea Imports, a division of MMFab) offers an array of updated quilting fabrics. I'm partial to their fabric for three reasons; it is very high quality 100% cotton that I have used for many years in various sewing projects, they include great patterns and ideas to use with their fabric and, I just signed a contract as one of their new fabric designers!

A lot of SSI fabric collections come with free projects; from full sized quilts to aprons with matching potholders.

This project will be perfect to make for my new grand niece born only a few weeks ago.

The Fabric
There are also matching pillows for this fabric. This is the link to complete patterns and directions. http://www.southseaimports.com/southseaimportsfolder/PImages/Pdf_78.pdf
You can purchase their fabric at most quilt shops and large fabric/craft stores.
