You won’t want to miss next month’s Quilty Box featuring Portland designer extraordinaire, @violetcraft! We can’t wait to share Palm Canyon, Violet’s newest collection for @robertkaufman, and her unique style and story with you. If you are yearning for the warm summer sun, you will love Palm Canyon, inspired by the Coachella Valley in Southern California, with its distinctively different palette.
Violet describes herself as “mostly a mother, a wife, a friend and a maker." And yes, that’s her real name! Violet was always a maker and she made her first quilt when she was 19, but initially she followed a corporate career path. Her design career began when she became inspired at a chance visit to Quilt Market. She ordered a bolt of every fabric in @amybutlerdesign’s Gypsy Caravan collection and then she sat down then and there to begin sketching her unique children’s clothing line, which became KungFu Bambini. Soon she was releasing her own fabric and pattern designs. Violet’s quilt designs are stunning; her phenomenal English paper pieced lion quilt made her a Quilt Market Superstar in her own right, and she followed this memorable quilt with an equally amazing menagerie of other animal and landscape designs. .

Our Atomic Starburst quilt is finished and it is gorgeous!! It was pieced by Fabric Smart teacher Diane Gardner Rhoden and quilted by Dora Pearl. Please stop by to see it! This Midcentury modern quilt pattern is by Violet Craft and is both front and back made with fabrics from her Palm Canyon Collection by Robert Kaufman. Just spectacular in design and construction!

Our small quilt group (group renamed wasabi) is doing a row quilt bee. Yesterday, April 15th, we did the reveal. The quilt rows were so individual, unique and stunning. My phone was off Pokemanning so I didn't get photos of the other quilt rows.
This is mine-Grief to Friendship/lux et tenebras. I should have taken a panoramic shot. I used Kumamoto Fujita's book and condensed font to design my row. I was trying to express sadness and hidden grief and how this wonderful group of ladies and helped transform those feelings into friendship. I incorporated small scraps from quilting and sewing projects I've made since moving to PDX as well as some fabrics that were to me. I used fabrics by #konacotton #alisonglass #violetcraft and some small pieces of #tulapink. Note I attempted improv-omg the background hence the uneven small squares-

💃 time! 👀 what was in today’s mail—the fantastic ‘Palm Canyon’ roll up I won from Fabric Depot! ❤️ this line of fabric, now to decide what to make. Anyone have an idea? Thank you again @fabricdepot #robertkaufmanfabrics #violetcraft #palmcanyonfabric

I’m so excited to be the instructor for Modern Quilt Masters in October. It’s a 3 1/2 day intensive workshop on how to design your own foundation pieced pattern. We will learn all about EPP vs FPP, choose which is right for your project, design your pattern and making your project. I’ve been asked to teach this process before, but this is the only environment that has felt right for the process so far. I think it’s going to be amazing bringing your creations to life. Today is the final day of MQG member sign ups. Open enrollment starts tomorrow and I’ve heard there are only a couple spots left. See you in the Hudson River Valley! @themqg #modernquiltmasters #mqg #violetcraft ...

Now that Francine @melrosecakes has received her #hrossminiswap2018 package I can share what I chose to create for her 💗
.
The pillow cover is adapted from @violetcraft s #atomicstarburstquilt pattern ✨
.
The #foundationpaperpiecing stars were shrunk to 50% and I chose to omit the borders so I could fit more #heatherross goodness into the design 💖
.
I added some #essexlinen in steel to compliment the pink and added a little hand quilting around the border
.
The other goodies you’ve seen over the past few weeks, the mouse tool folio, a patchwork pouch and the long pincushion are now at their new home 💞
.
I’m so happy you love it all Francine 🤗😘✨💗such a pleasure to create for you .

Today I went to #quiltandstitchvillage to see my quilt on display. This is my haul. The green butterflies is 6.5metres because at £4pm it was criminal not to Get the rest of the bolt. The number of entrants into the competition was small but I loved the show and quilts on display. If you are near Uttoxeter Racecourse then definitely suggest a visit this weekend. #quiltandstitchvillage2018 #fabrichaul #loriholt #loriholtspellingbeebook #itswasonlyasmallamount #katespain #aurifil #violetcraft

I belong to Raincross Quilt Guild. This month is 50% challenge. It's an UFO (Unfinished Object) challenge. We must finish anything that is half done, so I picked this project.
I started and worked on this guy last summer until we sold our house. He was packed and didn't see the light of day til now.

There's no better way to learn how to do something than trying it at least 40 more times, right? My love for curves (and wonkiness) continues!

I’m all ready to go. There has been much internal debate on which quilt to make. Really though, I have 98 more days of kaleidoscope making. I can make them all!!!! Or at least a few. Lol I’m in love with this palette! It’s not often I embrace a burgundy but this just works! .

One of the recent #igquiltfest photochallenge prompts asked us to tell something we Must Make... On my must make list is the Atomic Starburst quilt by Violet Craft-go and look it up,it's lovely!
I wanted to challenge myself to get patchworking and to really give foundation paper piecing a go and this quilt definitely fits the bill : )
As many of you will know choosing fabric for projects is often the hardest part. On my trip to Paris just before Christmas a trip to Frou Frou in Montmatre provided this gorgeous range of star print fabric. I'm going to use these for the diamonds and coordinating colours in Grunge by Moda for the stars : )
The coloured stars on white was in my stash and will be the backing.I was tempted to use it for the sashing but there isn't enough so I've decided to use a white stars on white to continue the star theme : )

My wolf is really coming along now. At the beginning, all those pieces were quite intimidating, but I told myself to just focus on a few pieces at a time and not the whole. Plus, it's been nice to do the mirror side at the same time so you have the right fabric in front of you. I can't wait to get this top done.

Day 31 of #igquiltfest is WIP - work in progress. Hosted my @amyscreativeside . I am hoping to get my super cute Tula pink elephant done in the next few weeks. He has definitely been a work in progress for months now. I have decided to redo and replace the eye sections of my elephant because I just don't think they stand out enough... then I need to fix a little mistake in the toe area... I also want to add some extra border around him.. then it's quilting time!! ... I know I've shared my elephant a few times in the last little bit but I'm thinking if I keep telling everyone I am going to get him finished then it just might happen. LoL

#igquiltfest Must Make
It’s very rare for me to make a quilt that isn’t my own design or interpretation of a traditional design. At least a good 10 to 15 designs in #eq7 are must-makes for someday.

So I have to think a pattern is pretty amazing to want to make it...these two fit the bill!
—The Lion by #violetcraft —he will be made in purples!
#thewatcherquilt by #libselliott —we like a lot of the same palettes so it is sure to look real Libs-ish when I get there!

Friday Finish!! So much love for this summer quilt! I used an old sheet as batting to make it lightweight. ☺️

Back in the game for #igquiltfest and today it’s ‘must make’. I was lucky enough to get this adorable #epp peacock kit by @violetcraft for my birthday last year and when I was at #quiltcon2018 I came across a fabric bundle of the exact colours I need! (Swipe to see, they are just soooo pretty!) So now I have no excuses and just need to get on with it 😂💕
