Introducing the Snow Tires Mini Pattern

Hey there!

I've been obsessed with making Sew Together bags the past few months and have cranked out quite a few.  One of my favorites was one where I mini-sized my Snow Tires pattern.

This past weekend, I was working on assembling a few more bags and went back to this fun and quick to piece pattern.  After several comments on IG, I thought it would be fun to go ahead and make the mini-sized pattern to share.

So, I give you the Snow Tires Mini ....

This particular pattern is sized to 18" x 18", but you can easily make it longer or wider to fit your needs.  The 18" x 18' size is perfect for pillows like the one shown here using Folk Art Holiday.

Paper patterns, PDF patterns, and kits for this particular pattern are available while supplies last and you can get one free this week (offer ends 11/30/14 - see above for details)!

Hope you all are having a great week!

Happy Sewing! :-)

Persimmon 16-Patch Quilt

This past weekend I had the chance to get away and sew for the weekend with some friends. And I managed some pretty fun finishes including a quilt top!

With the holidays fast approaching (and also wanting some easy sewing while chatting with my friends), this quilt was the perfect quick & easy project.

The more I use the Persimmon collection by Basic Grey for Moda the more I love it.  The colors are beautiful and its perfect for fall and the Thanksgiving season!

This top turned out at 48 x 56 and can be made with just one layer cake!  (You'll need 3 yards backing and a 1/2 yard for the binding.

All layer cakes are 20% off this week in our shop - just use code "CAKE20" and we'll throw in a free pattern sheet for this quick and easy quilt with any layer cake now through 11/23/14!

All Things New at Sew Lux

Hey everyone! 

I've been a terrible blogger lately!  But I did want to pop in and share some shop updates with you all. I will work on getting some posts together about my recent sewing and trip to Quilt Market! 

Best.Day.Ever! by April Rosenthal has arrived and we're featuring 12 prints in the collection in this fun Moda FQ Club bundle for November.  We have precuts and yardage now available in the shop as well. 

November's Color Me Happy club bundle features brown.  I chose some great low volume prints to lighten up this bundle and I love the range of shades. Most of the prints are from Persimmon by Basic Grey and Elementary by Sweetwater.  These would go great in a Modern Maples quilt.

While at Market, I got a glimpse of the Folk Song collection by AMH.  She's reprinting 14 prints on cotton from previous lines and we ordered them all for Sew Lux.  You can preorder bundles now - these will arrive in February.

Another market find ... the Gardenvale quilt featuring Jen Kingwell's first collection for Moda.  This is a dresden quilt kit that includes the genius striped panels for the dresden plates.  Reserve your kit today for April delivery.

And if you've followed me on Instagram, you know I've become a glue baster for nearly all my piecing!  I love not having to deal with pins and the regular old Elmer's glue hold everything in place - perfect for quick chain piecing!  I picked up some glue tips for the shop while at market.  Grab a set of 2 here.

And there's a bunch of new short stacks in the shop ...

We also now have Essex Linen in 3 (of my personal) favorite colors!  So excited - I use the yarn dyed black in nearly every bag I make!

Priory Square is arriving this week too!  That's all for now!  Stay tuned for my last border for the mini medallion quilt series over at Clover & Violet - coming this Saturday!

Happy Sewing!  :-)
