9 Embroidery Designs For Summer Stitching

Summer is in full swing which means busy schedules, late nights, and little time to sew - especially with a 3 month old. I've been searching for a new project that can fill those brief moments in between the hustle and a little hand embroidery is just right. Here's a list of my favorite finds that are perfect for Summer Stitching - enjoy!

The Iowa Star Block | Free PDF Template

Last week I sent this adorable Iowa Star block off for a fun project with Country Living Magazine. I used a blue & green combination of solid fabrics for my 12" block - which made for a fun twist on such a traditional quilt block. I quickly decided to make more blocks so I put together a downloadable PDF of the paper pieced pattern I created - and thought you might enjoy the pattern too. Enjoy!

Ripple - A New Quilt Pattern

What better way to kick off a Monday than with a new pattern in the Pattern Shop. Many of you have asked for a PDF version of my Ripple quilt using V & Co.'s Ombre collection from Moda Fabrics and today is the day! Ripple finishes at 72" x 86" making it a generous throw size quilt or perfect for a twin size bed. All you need is a rainbow of ombre fabric and background yardage - easy! I've written the pattern for strip piecing the ombre units which means this quilt goes together in no time. Purchase your PDF version of Ripple right here - it's on sale through Friday!

Are you on social media? Share progress of your Ripple quilt on social media using #ripplequilt and #canoeridgecreations.

My version of Ripple uses 15 fat eighth yard cuts (8"x21") in the following colors:

Hot Pink
Popsicle Pink
Lime Green

And what about an V & Co. Confetti Ombre version - yes, please. Want to sew along with me? Later this week I'll be sharing all the details on the Ripple Quilt Along - I'd love for you to join me!
