We’re excited to announce our new email newsletter for our shop owners!
Usually it takes about a week or two from the time a pattern is finished, to get them printed and assembled to ship out, so we’ve decided to offer a small discount on pre-orders!
Sign up using this link. We’ll send you an email with our new pattern about a week before it’s officially released and give you 10% off the wholesale price for a limited time. You should see an email from us 1-2 times a month.
Twice a month, I have the pleasure of teaching all the 8-11 year old girls in my church and neighborhood. We have faith-promoting lessons, learn new skills, and generally have a lot of fun. It’s great to see the kids out of the church setting and get to know them a little better.
Last week, I decided to teach them how to embroider. I traced their initial and a simple floral design on a small piece of fabric, and lined it with Shape Flex. Shape Flex is awesome because you don’t have to use an embroidery hoop, it hides your threads, & keeps your fabric looking clean & pressed. We use it in all our quilts and embroidery projects.
I just taught them how to do a basic backstitch and let them have at my giant stash of embroidery thread. The hardest part was keeping their needle threaded haha, but considering they’re young girls- they picked it up super quick! I was impressed!
We told them if they finished, we’d help them make them into little pillows. The finished size is 5″ x 7″- also a great size for framing. They’d look cute in a hoop too!
For you, this link will let you download all 26 letters. Use #meagsandme on Instagram if you decide to make one! We love to see your pictures!
I’ve been dying to show you this pattern since the moment it was conceived in my brain. Or my husband’s brain, technically. Sometimes he has good ideas. Sometimes he thinks ketchup belongs on steak.
We met Dodi from at the SLC market this past spring and fell in love with her and her fabric line Enchanted. We were immediately drawn to all the navy, pink, and minty green colors and the perfectly designed quaint floral prints paired seamlessly with the cutest plaid. It’d be stunning in a number of projects and we wanted to design a quilt that really showed it off.
Cue my husband saying “you could put some deer in it”, and then it all came together pretty quickly.
I think it’s pretty adorable.
We’ve decided to offer 20% off any PDF pattern on our etsy shop. If you’re looking for a new project, we’ve got you covered. Enter ENCHANTED at checkout. This code will work through the blog tour (ending February 10) If you prefer a printed, in your hand pattern, ask your local quilt shop 😉
Make sure you follow along the rest of the blog tour!
After meeting Shari from Doohickey Designs at market this past spring, we were so excited she asked us to design a quilt with her absolutely adorable fabric line- Wistful Winds. It’s bright and versatile, with beautiful floral themes that we knew would be just perfect for applique.
We really wanted to create something that was just as happy as the fabric. The yellow and orange reminded us of my 6 year old’s favorite animal- the giraffe. After trying to figure out how to appliqué a giant giraffe on a quilt, we came up with this:
But really. That bird.😍
I just love everything about this! It was so fun seeing it all come together and I can’t imagine a better fabric for this design.
This quilt pattern, which we just had to name Oopsie Daisy, is found HERE!
If you use the code WISTFULWINDS at checkout, we’ll give you 20% off your order. This includes any of our PDF patterns. Expires at the end of the blog tour- October 14.
