Fabric Refresh - Evolve by Suzy Quilts for Art Gallery Fabrics

I'm back with another Fabric Refresh blog post! If you're new around here, this is where I use my Electric Quilt 8 software to refresh some of my quilt patterns with new fabrics. Then I share them here so you can get inspired and get some ideas for how to use a recent fabric collection!

Today's I'm featuring Evolve by Suzy Quilts for Art Gallery Fabrics. As soon as I saw this collection a few months ago, I knew there would be a Fabric Refresh post in its future! I love the soft, muted colors. It has a bit of a tropical and beachy feel to it. If that appeals to you too, keep scrolling to check out all the refreshed quilts that I've created. 

I told myself I was only going to do a few since my life is so busy these days, but I got a bit carried away and have almost 20 mock-ups in this post! Enjoy!

I'm back today with another Fabric Refresh post. Today's featured collection is Strawberry Lemonade by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda Fabrics. I have been waiting for months for this fabric to arrive in stores! It is so pretty and I'm actually in the middle of making a quilt with this fabric for a future quilt pattern. While I can't share that just yet, I can share some refreshed versions of other patterns. Let's jump right in!

Moda designer 1 Canoe 2 has a new fabric collection out now called Willow. If January is giving you the winter blahs, the Willow collection might be just what you need! The colors are so rich and saturated and these fabrics make me think of a summertime getaway.

I knew as soon as I saw this collection that I needed to refresh some of my patterns with Willow. I'm excited to share them with you today. Let's jump right in!

Fabric Refresh - Juniper by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabrics

Welcome to 2024! I'm kicking off the new year with a brand new Fabric Refresh blog post. There are so many great fabric collections coming up this year and I hope I can keep up and share my refreshed patterns with you!

Today's featured fabric collection is already available and has been for a bit. It seems to still be fairly easy to find though. It's Sharon Holland's Juniper collection for Art Gallery Fabrics

This collection has a very cozy feel to it and is perfect for this time of year! Let's get right to the refreshed quilts.

The first pattern that I refreshed with Juniper is Evening Glow. I originally designed this quilt with a light background and dark accent, but as I've refreshed this quilt a few times over the years, I'm finding that I like it even better with a dark background and a light accent.

Here I've used one of the dark green prints for the background with solid white for the accent squares. The pattern calls for 16 fat quarters but since this collection doesn't have a lot of prints, especially if you want to leave out the ones that blend in too much with the background or accent, I made this mockup as though I used 8 half yards.

Fabric Refresh - Sandalwood Bonus Quilt

I'm back with another Fabric Refresh post featuring my newest pattern, Sandalwood. Earlier, I shared a Fabric Refresh post for the main Sandalwood quilt. Today, I'm sharing refreshed versions of the bonus quilt pattern that is included with the Sandalwood pattern.

There are multiple layout options in the pattern, but you can also come up with your own! You can also change up the look of the quilt by changing how you handle the plain blocks in between the pieced blocks and the border. I've tried to mix up the mockups to showcase some of the ways you can make this quilt work for you.

Fabric Refresh - Sandalwood Quilt

Hello! I just released a new pattern so of course I have to dedicate a Fabric Refresh post to it! There are so many fabric options that look great with this pattern. In fact, I have so many mockups of this pattern to share that I'm going to get right to it!

The first refreshed Sandalwood quilt I'm sharing is shown above and features the Palette Picks bundle by Modernly Morgan for Robert Kaufman. I absolutely love this color palette. It is so cheery and happy and bright. It would make a great spring quilt! This bundle is available as fat quarters, so I chose 12 of my favorite colors from the bundle for this mockup (12 is the number of fat quarters needed to make the quilt).

Sandalwood Quilt - The Pink Lemonade Version

Today I'm sharing the second sample of my newest pattern, Sandalwood. But before I get into the details on this quilt, I thought you might be wondering why I called this pattern Sandalwood. Sometimes, pattern names just come to me and I go with it. Sometimes it's a little more intentional and that was the case here.
