Like, the Cutest Quilt EVER!!!

When we came across these adorable little quilts on the Michael Miller blog it was nearly too much! The amount of cute for using just ONE truly unique print is just unexplainable! But we just had to stock the shop with these fabrics in case you all felt as strongly as us about it!!
All you need for either color way is a few Dots, the Eduardo Coin print and the Packmates Coin or Boy print! You could even substitute in some Solids if you'd like!

You can download the instructions for the Boy Quilt HERE and the Girl Quilt HERE!
What would you back them with? I think a minky or flannel would be super cozy for a little one! But a Solid would look really cool too, lately I've even been getting into pieced backs...truly the sky is the limit when it comes to what you can do with a quilt!

Refresh Your Home with Mixologie by Studio M!

 Trendy colors, fabulous prints...what more could you ask for? Oh, how about that all the fabrics are PERFECT for mixing & matching? It's all here in Mixologie by Studio M! Chic and stylish, Mixologie blends a variety of modern essentials with a cosmopolitan flavor in a fresh color palette that is contemporary yet classic.
Mixologie Blueberry  Mixologie Blueberry  Mixologie Blueberry Ice
Mixologie Ice Blueberry  Mixologie Ice Blueberry  Mixologie Ice Blueberry
Mixologie Mango  Mixologie Mango Steel  Mixologie Mango Steel
Everything from classic dots, to inventive geometrics and even a cool ikat! To me, all of these prints have a timeless sensibility with perfectly on-trend colors for creating some amazing home décor! I can just see a grouping of throw pillows on a sofa, they could all be different prints to give your living room an effortlessly eclectic vibe or keep things classic and stick with two of the same design! I'd love to see some living room curtains out of the ikat print! And imagine a modern dining room accented with a few of these fabrics? SEW CHIC!
Quilts on the brain? Check out this gorgeous quilt that Studio M used at Quilt Market this past Fall for inspiration! I found this progress shot on the Piece N Quilt blog (she did the quilting which is totally perfect by the way!). I love the look of this design and feel like you could even adapt it to a simple patchwork quilt on point! The white border around each block are kinda great though, huh??
What will you make with Mixologie??  We can't wait to see!
Happy Sewing!

Simple Quilts for Fabulous Bedrooms

I think we're definitely seeing more simple and classic quilt designs in modern home décor and I have to say I am loving it! Whether you have a vintage quilt that your grandmother made or you're looking to bring some serious style to your space, a quilt is near necessity for bedrooms. A scrappy log cabin can be made with your stash or you can choose a host of new darks, mediums, and lights in your own color palette for a more personalized look. Totally warms up the clean, modern lines of the furniture, don't you think? (Image found here)
You definitely don't need a complex pattern to make a seriously stunning quilt! Large scale prints in lots of different colors look chic and eclectic in a simple patchwork design like this one. Use natural elements for furniture choices and accents to create a truly perfect bohemian style bedroom!

This simple strip quilt is the perfect accent to a rustic bedroom like this. Try dressing your bed like this in the warmer months for a cooler sleep while still having warmth nearby for those random cold Summer nights! (Image found here)
A few shades of a few colors on a white background looks effortlessly modern and makes enough of a statement to keep the rest of the décor really minimal. I love how little there is in this space and how happy it looks! And I won't even get started on those high ceilings...glorious! (Image found here)

The New Year is the perfect time for updating your bedroom. It can give you such a fresh perspective on life to change up your environment, especially when it makes you happy! And quilts are a great at making people happy, so freshen up your bed with a quilt new or old!
