Modern Baby by Martingale Press

Welcome to the Modern Baby Blog Tour! Modern Baby Shower

ModernBabyCover

Modern Baby is HERE! I was invited to join this collaborative book project, published by Martingale Press. It is a really unique group of 14 baby quilts by various designers. Here, let me get you the description:

From Martingale Press: “In this amazingly diverse collection, a bevy of talented quilting bloggers present appealing baby-quilt designs for sewists and quilters of all skill levels. Designers include Amy Smart, Audrie Bidwell, Carolyn Friedlander, Carrie Bloomston, Dana Bolyard, Jake Finch, Jen Eskridge, Lindsey Rhodes, Melissa Corry, Pippa Eccles Armbrester, Sarah Flynn, Shea Henderson, and Victoria Findlay Wolfe.

  • Showcase bright, bold solids and modern fabrics–perfect for stimulating Baby’s senses
  • Choose from 14 small quilts that can be easily completed in time for the baby shower
  • Rely on clear instructions and illustrations for each inviting design

The invitation was wide open and I got to thinking… I’d like my project to have hexagons on it, and I’d like my project to be quick and easy. The Fractured Hexagons Baby quilt came to mind: HQuiltedHexQuilt You’ve seen this quilt before on the blog, a short while back, January 2011. It was a gift for my niece. Shortly after I posted it, it became one of the first quilts ever put up on Modern Day Quilts tumblr.? {Thanks Heather!}? I decided this quilt needed a pattern and thankfully, Martingale thought so too. The red quilt features Nicey Jane fabrics by Heather Bailey and Free Spirit Fabrics. I set out asking my Sister-in-Law and niece if I could get the quilt back. (((… best gift-giver evah …)))? But I just need to borrow the quilt, not keep it and actually take it back. Thankfully she didn’t mind. I made a second one in blue. The blue quilt features Tokyo Rococo by Carol Van Zandt and Andover Fabrics. I gave both the blue and red quilts back to my nieces, so hopefully that will make up for the “steal back”. BlueFracturedQuilt Many modern quilters like to use solids in their quilt designs. I’m a huge fan, but I do also like mixing the prints with the solids. I think it helps ground the prints a bit. What do you think?

Hexagon Circle Wall Hanging KIT

Hexagons Made Easy Kit | ReannaLily Designs | $18 + Shipping

Hexagons Made Easy Kit | ReannaLily Designs | $18 + Shipping

I’ve been hard at work building kits for you! The kits support the Hexagon Circle Wall Hanging project on page 42 of Hexagons Made Easy. The kit is versatile and priced right. (Art Gallery Fabrics Poetica line, Kit Fabrics pictured above) Here’s the original quilt project from the book:

hexagon wall hanging

Class Sample From Hexagons Made Easy

The kit provides you with enough fabric to make this wall hanging design for only $18 + shipping. The kit includes a little over 3 yards of fabric cut into:

  • Background (1 yard)
  • Backing (1 yard)
  • Binding (1/2 yard)
  • 28 Hexagons (Used as facings and focus fabric to make up to 14 hexagons.)

After I got the plan together and taught the class with the kit, it occurred to me that you will have enough fabric to make a couple varieties of projects using the Hexagons Made Easy technique. In fact, if you added a small amount of your own facing fabric, you could have 28 printed hexagons for applique’ing onto any quilted idea you conjure up. (See below.)

Speaking of options, you can use the 1 yard of blue OR 1 yard of purple as the background fabric. It is totally up to you! The Art Gallery Fabrics line all blend so nicely together. (See the table runner in the picture above? Simply use the provided 1/2 yard of binding stripe as your background to create the runner.) Maybe it is too many options. Maybe it is a kit with wiggle room. Hexagons Made Easy Kit | ReannaLily Designs | $18 + Shipping Don’t have the book? Don’t worry, you can combine the kit and book for a Bundle Deal. See the drop down options when you add to cart. Signed book + Kit only $37.00 + shipping.




Ultimate Owl Cheater Quilt Panel

Introducing the Ultimate Owl Cheater Quilt Panel

I?m so happy to finally share my Ultimate Owl Cheater Quilt Panel with you! It has been in the works since MAY 2015 and it is finally here!!

Let me show you the evolution of the the sugar skull or candy skull style owl on a retro quilt cheater panel:

Creating the Owl

I can draw so-so. Luckily I can use the computer better than I can draw! I started with a half owl doodled on two sheets of paper taped together. That is pretty sophisticated, right?Ultimate Sugar Skull Owl Quilt Cheater Panel | Jen Eskridge | ReannaLily Designs
That is pretty festive! (Dias de los Muertos is right around the corner here.) Since the image was manipulated in Illustrator and was now a vector graphic, it occurred to me to make it as big as I possibly could ON FABRIC. The panel measures 42? x 36?.Ultimate Sugar Skull Owl Quilt Cheater Panel | Jen Eskridge | ReannaLily Designs

You may recognize the background bars image. It is a cheater panel concept for my quilt pattern 1976.1976 Baby Quilt | ReannaLily Designs | Jen Eskridge | Quilt Pattern

With the owl in place and the bars printed directly on a brown plaid background, my cheater panel was ready to become a quilt. I?m going free and loose with the word quilt? here because there is no batting or quilting in this first final project.

To finish the panel, you can quilt it, of course, though I chose to simply baste the printed fabric to super soft minkie fabric and bind with rounded edges. You can read more about that process here.

How can you get your own Owl? I?ve got some great news for ya the panels are available atSpoonflower!! Make sure you add 1 yard? to your cart to get the entire owl panel.

Ultimate Sugar Skull Owl Quilt Cheater Panel | Jen Eskridge | ReannaLily Designs

Currently the panel is in the 1970?s retro palette (Browns/Oranges/Yellows).

When these two additional owl colors become available on Spoonflower, I?ll be sure to let you know!! (The yellow has a very pale grid design in the background that I?m not sure you can see on this preview image.)

NOTE: The ReannaLily Designs watermarks are not actual on the panels.

If you check out the whole collection on Spoonflower, you?ll see a few 9? owl panels in blue, black and deep purple. You?ll also find a HUGE owl in grey with a clean white background. That big guy would be great to use a coloring panel or a center in a medallion style quilt.




The Quilted Clamshell eBook

The Quilted Clamshell by Jen Eskridge | ReannaLily Designs | Machine Quilting Book | Longarm | ReannaLily Quilts

Introducing The Quilted Clamshell!

The Quilted Clamshell is Jen’s fourth book and is entirely self-published!

The Quilted Clamshell is a collection of over 70 quilting designs to fit into the class clamshell shape. This reference book is a guide to developing your own unique designs using three simple variables. Sketch, plan, and quilt with confidence!

This listing is for the E-Book.

A printed/paper book is available at Amazon.com

The book is a method to develop quilting designs. As a longarm quilter, time is invested in researching perfect designs to compliment customer quilts. In that research, I noticed there seemed to be a gap in designs where the clamshell was concerned. I doodled and drew as research for my own Glam Clam project. After some time, I noticed I approached the design process in the same manner: manipulating three variables. The Quilted Clamshell was born.

The Quilted Clamshell by Jen Eskridge | ReannaLily Designs | Machine Quilting Book | Longarm | ReannaLily Quilts

Unlike my other books, The Quilted Clamshell is entirely self-published. The printed book is available through Amazon and as an ebook through ReannaLily Designs shop.

I hope The Quilted Clamshell?is useful to you and your quilting projects!

Learn To Sew Easy Curves

L5750_LearnToSewCover

Learn To Sew Easy Curves is here!

Circles are a huge trend in modern quilting and a staple in traditional quilt designs. This new book focuses on the circle and curved shapes to make fun QUICK projects. Best part- NO CURVED PIECING. There is not a notch to match or fabric to ease. The technique featured in the book is completely based on adding facings to shapes and machine applique’ing them to your project.

What a huge time saver!

What a great way to use up some of your “I cannot think of why I bought this” scraps and yardages. Those pieces that you’d hate to throw out but don’t love, can easily find a home as your shapes’ facings. Win. Win.

The book will be on sale today and over the next week I’ll be able to give you more in-depth blog posts on some of the projects in the book.

All books ordered from ReannaLily Designs will be signed.

Wholesale: This book is published by Leisure Arts and retails for $14.95.
