Pattern Release: One Block Three Designs #100 Desert Series

My newest pattern is now available in my Etsy shop – pick up your PDF copy here!

This pattern features one block design – you make the number of needed blocks and pick your final layout from three unique designs! It’s a fun way to practice basic quilting requirements (work on perfecting that quarter inch seam, make accurate half-square triangles) and get to choose the final layout!

This pattern reminds me of my grandma (my other grandma. If you've seen some of my project lately, my great grandma is influencing those. My personal life influences many of my designs!) and visiting her when she lived in the Southwest. You can read the full inspiration story by clicking here.

The pattern offers fabric requirements for yardage and fat quarters. It’s also a perfect scrap buster! The pattern includes a throw, lap and baby size and it’s beginner-friendly. You get to pick from three sizes and three designs – which means this is a pattern you’ll get to use time and time again!

I’d love to see which design layout you pick!
Be sure to use #oneblockthreedesignsquilt, the name of the design you choose #desertutopiaquilt #deserttrailquilt or #desertsunquilt and tag me @maeberrysquare on Instagram!

Quilt Coat Along

Welcome to the Spring 2021 Quilt Coat Along , hosted by TinaCurtis and Jessica Plunkett ! We are excited to bring together sewists to make one of the hottest fashion trends around – Quilt Coats. We'd like to start by acknowledging that quilt coats are not a new thing, they were found all over the world being made by people of color and of all different cultures. Below are examples from the International Quilt Museum and the Public Library Quilts page. We appreciate the beauty of both of these garments and are thankful for the rich history they lend to our current mainstream trend. https://www.internationalquiltmuseum.org/quilt/20140070004 View this post on Instagram A post shared by Public Library Quilts (@publiclibraryquilts) This is a low key sew along – while we have a relaxed six week schedule to try and keep you motivated, you are welcome to work at your own pace. Here are a few key details about the sew along if you’re interested in participating!

2020 Planning

I recently learned about Yvonne Fuch’s ( QuiltingJetGirl on Instagram !) #2020PlanningParty and I thought it was just the swift kick in the pants I needed to really think about my professional and personal quilting goals in 2020. Here are my thoughts leading into the new year. Professional Goals 1. Teach new quilters. The wheels have been set into motion for an opportunity to teach a quilting 101 class in my community in the spring. I’ve spent the last several months developing a beginner sampler pattern and I’ll be wrapping it up in a few weeks. Here’s hoping there are a few people interested in learning how to quilt! 2. Print four of my patterns. A few shops and guilds have asked me about printed patterns for their stores or for upcoming lecturers. Currently I only offer patterns as PDFs so I have a goal of getting a small batch of four specific patterns printed in 2020. 3. Release three new patterns. With some of my other professional and personal quilting goals in 2020, I’

Transparent Squares Quilt Block Tutorial

If you are new to transparency in quilting or need a refresher, this is a simple practice block to make to play around with fabric choices and the effects of transparency. Transparent Squares Quilt Block I posted a video on IGTV that explains the very basics of transparency in quilting. A short simplified version of what I shared is that transparency is the ability to see through layer(s) of an object. It can be real or implied. So in quilting, you can use fabric color choices to make implied transparency. The most basic way to achieve transparency, in my opinion, is to choose dark, medium and light values of one color. Understanding color structure is important, but being a master of it is not required to play around with transparency. For example, if a grey fabric has a lot of cool color blue undertones, then you have to be cognizant of how that specific fabric color plays with other colors. Also, it’s important to realize that while many colors are available in fabrics, it’s
