Trend Talk: Mini Quilts

Every month, we highlight a trend in quilting and show you how you can add this hip style to your projects!

This month, we’re all about minis! Mini quilts are a great summer project and the perfect way to test color combinations, new techniques, and block designs without a big commitment of time and money. Plus, they’re so cute! See these patterns for mini quilts and get started on one today.

Trend Talk: Butterflies

Every month, we highlight a trend in quilting and show you how you can add this hip style to your projects!

At Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh, we noticed a lot of butterflies! From fun fabric motifs to sophisticated designs to quilt patterns, this cute trend was floating around everywhere (pun intended). With summer right around the corner, we’re excited to add butterflies to our must-have list so we can start quilting.

Trend Talk: Neon

Every month, we highlight a trend in quilting and show you how you can add this hip style to your projects!

Warmer weather calls for hot colors! And you can’t get much hotter (or trendier) than neon fabrics. Coming in subtle prints, bold designs, and standout solids, neons are perfect for adding a pop of color to your sewing projects — or sew with all neons for an attention-grabbing quilt. No matter what you’re style, neons are taking over for summer.

Trend Talk: Feathers

Every month, we highlight a trend in quilting and show you how you can add this hip style to your projects!

We don’t know if it’s a sign of spring, but feathers are hot right now. We’ve been seeing them on fabric and in patterns–and we can’t resist. We’re flocking to them! Whether it’s an entire quilt with pieced or applique feathers for a modern twist on blocks, or little peeks of fabrics for a nod to nature, we’re ready to ruffle our feathers and fly with this trend! See how to add this hot trend to your quilting.

Trend Talk: Embroidery

Every month, we highlight a trend in quilting and show you how you can add this hip style to your projects!

As quilters, we know that handmade is hot! DIY decor, gifts, clothes, and parties are becoming more mainstream…and still continue to let us crafters make lasting and meaningful items to pass down! We’ve seen embroidery pop up, not only as embellishments on quilts, but also on wall art, tea towels, jewelry, and more. Embroidery is perfect for on-the-go-crafters: it’s portable, it’s relaxing, and you can talk while doing it. Even better, it allows us quilters to practice our stitches, get creative, and make something that will be treasured forever! And if you’ve been following along with our 2014 issues of American Patchwork & Quilting, you know that each month we’ve been featuring some of Sue Spargo’s brilliant stitch designs with instructions and video companions. Missed them? Buy back issues here.
