Triangle Quilt

This weekend I decided I needed to scratch an itch i'd had and made a triangle quilt. I knew the new line Brambleberry Ridge by Violet Craft. 


The colors play together so nicely and the subtly of the metallics gives it a nice finish.



I backed it in a flannel pink houndstooth I have to give it that added layer of comfort and coziness!




Bound in pearl bracelets makes everything look wonderful :)


This quilt is available for purchase in my handmade shop

Voile-licious

I've had a bundle of Anna Maria Horner voile in my stash for some time.
I decided to get chopping and put it to good use.


I went with a simple patchwork quilt and backed it with AMH from Hand Drawn Garden.


My favorite thing about this quilt is how lightweight it is. The voile gives the top a silky feel and the cotton backing is super lightweight. There is 100% cotton backing inside for durability.


I did a simple double line of top stitching and tied it to keep it light and lofty.


This blanket is the perfect addition to any household for a light summer quilt or great as a picnic blanket.
I've listed it in my etsy shop

Mystery Quilt… Revealed!

So back in March I started a project that I could only reveal in small pieces on Instagram (@knotted_thread) if you're interested in following!

My best friend of 25 years is getting married this summer and I decided a quilt… a substantial quilt was needed to gift her. She has been an irish step dancer since she was 5y.o. and in college we even traveled to Ireland together for the All Ireland competition. This being said, the quilt pattern "Triple Irish Chain" was a no brainer.


I made a queen size for her and when I finished piecing, sent it out to Heidi for some long arm expertise



Let's just say… she EXCEEDED anything I had mentally thought this would be.
Her attention to detail is absolutely amazing and I couldn't have been more thrilled with out it turned out!


See! Silly mom and her fingers over the lens… awesome.









Welp, thats a huge finish I can check off my FAL list and with that being said,
Congratulations again Maggie and Augie!!
