In the heart of every quilt, there lies a story. It whispers of patience, creativity, and love stitched meticulously into every seam. Susan Ache and I celebrate our new book, Celebrate with Quilts for this very reason. We both make quilts to captures the essence of celebrations and wanted to share a resource to be able to make a quilt exactly as featured in the book but also a design book to create your own variation.
Quilts hold a special place in the realm of gift-giving. They are more than just pieces of fabric sewn together; they are tokens of love, patience, and dedication. Imagine gifting a quilt to a newlywed couple, symbolizing the warmth and comfort of their new journey together. Picture a quilt presented to a graduate, embodying the support and pride of their achievements. Quilts are not just gifts; they are cherished memories woven into fabric, making them the perfect present for any celebration.
“Celebrate with Quilts” unveils a collection of 60 unique blocks, each thoughtfully designed and presented in four different sizes, providing endless possibilities for creativity. From vibrant birthday parties to cozy holiday gatherings, this book is a tribute to the art of celebration, offering quilting patterns that perfectly capture the spirit of various occasions. Shown above is our Blueprint quilt. It is a simple go to quilt that can be made over and over showcasing your favorite fabric line with the larger squares sprinkled with patchwork.
Mi Amour quilt will be part of our quilt along happening early December on Moda Fabrics blog.
There will also be a QAL March 2024 featuring Camille Roskelley’s upcoming fabric collection, so stay tuned for more info.
I am in love with this quilt that Susan made and may have to plan a QAL for this one also or some how try to add this one to my to-do list. See what I mean by making quilts to celebrate with? Decorating for Holidays or special events is one of the best reasons to make a new quilt and there is oodles of quilt inspiration for you in this book.
Whether you are an experienced quilter or a novice, this book is a gateway to a world of creativity, color, and joy.
So, pick up your needles, choose our fabrics, and start stitching our own stories of celebration. After all, in the world of quilting, every stitch is a small celebration in itself—a celebration of creativity, passion, and the enduring tradition of quilting.
