The simple blocks and soft color palette combines to create an absolutely perfect baby quilt. But if you wanted to make it in bolder colors, or prints, you can buy the pattern in her shop to create a completely different look. It was quilted by Crinkle Love.
I absolutely adore the way it looks draped! It's a baby / throw size, and would be the perfect compliment to a modern nursery or living room. The variety of simple geometric shapes combined into one quilt top creates a quilt that is interesting to look at from a variety of angles, folded or unfolded. Pattern available here, original quilt for sale here.
Brittany shared that this design was "inspired by the rich Native American history in the mountains of Western North Carolina".

For this vibrant quilt, "Resound", Erika alternated black and white blocks with blocks filled with bright colors. She used a scrappy, string piecing method for this funky lap / throw sized quilt. It would make a really fun baby quilt, too! She quilted it with simple lines; the focus on this quilt is the pattern in the quilt top itself. The bold color choices, balanced with the monochromatic prints, combine to create a pop-art look.
She is featured, alongside this quilt (and these photos) in the July/August 2018 issue of Sewn Magazine. Go check it out! Erika, you rock!!

Did you know that we can photograph any size quilt? Yes, even king sizeds ones. Yes, even king plus sized ones, especially if your last name is also King ;). Holly is a self-proclaimed Liberty of London addict, who collected these fabrics for years during her trips back to England. Eventually, she amassed enough fabric to create this gorgeous, star-filled quilt. The stars are made completely out of Liberty fabrics, with low-volume whites mixed in as the background.
Due to the huge size of this quilt top, Holly sent it out to get longarm quilted. The texture is lovely, but the drape is even better. Guys, it is heavy. And glorious. So please, send us more of your impressively huge king-sized quilts; they are epic and your hard work deserves some documentation!

This quilt is really exciting to share - it is the quilt that you can make as part of the Modern Plus Sampler quiltalong led by Cheryl and Paige! Isn't it gorgeous? It combines a number of blocks from their book, Modern Plus Sign Quilts, arranged in a stunning new layout. There are so many ways you could color this quilt, but Cheryl's careful placement of lights and darks, with dashes of blue-greens, is simply genius.
Be sure to click through all of the photos - not only are her free motion quilting details amazing to see, but this quilt also photographed beautiful draped into different positions - which means it would look great in your home! So go on, join the quiltalong, you know you want to...
Alli, one of our Brand Ambassadors, sent this lovely twin-sized quilt to our studio to be photographed. She used lots of neutral yardage and added pops of color with charm pack squares to create darling little accents.
It has a fresh and sweet look to it, accented by the longarm pattern: quilted flowers with loops. Alli has this pattern available for sale here.
PIECED BY BRITTANY LLOYD
quilted by Knot and Thread Design, custom photography package by us
We're excited to share our first Brand Ambassador quilt! Brittany designed and pieced this sweet baby quilt, Celtic Crossing, as a play on the negative space of a traditional Irish Chain quilt. For this version, she used gray solids, paired with a striking geometric quilting pattern.
"I started with Kona Charcoal on the outer edges, then Kona Steel, Kona Iron and Kona Quicksilver. My background was Kona Snow (as always!). I'm typically not the biggest ombre fan, but I HAD to do it with this quilt and I loved how it turned out!"
This quilt is all about line and form, and beautifully combines soft and strong. Brittany sent this quilt off to Knot and Thread Design for edge-to-edge quilting, and used a whimsical hedgehog print for the backing.
You can find this pattern for sale in her shop here.

We're back with another quilt by scrap quilting maven, Erika. This gigantic, queen-sized scrappy quilt combines postage stamp squares and bordered rectangles. She expertly mixed these together in warm and cool sections. She backed it with a pop-style print and bound it with an electric yellow.
Erika sent this quilt to Darcie Mair for longarm quilting. Darcie used a chunky, variegated thread and flow quilted edge to edge swirls, feathers, paisleys, and other curly motifs. This quilt has been machine washed and has a luxuriously soft texture.
They're here, and they're AWESOME! Our 2018 Brand Ambassador team is full of some rock-star quilters. We're going to be photographing and featuring some of their gorgeous quilts throughout the rest of the year, and can't wait to see how they use the photos.
