HOOP QUILTS Pattern Day + GiveAway

Mar 17, 2017
Pin It
HOOP QUILTS Day has finally arrived... break out of the BLOCK!
Quick, inexpensive, different, ROUND and super fun.

They are taking the world by storm!
Well, not really.  They're quite polite actually.

Hoop Quilts are sweet round minis, made with love and a little spunk.  And they want to be displayed pretty much anywhere you can possibly think of.  Sewing room? Yes please.  Bedrooms? For sure. Tiny hallway? Absolutely! Hoop Quilts fit perfectly in just about any space.

I plan on sneaking one into our bathroom downstairs and seeing how long it takes my husband to notice.  ;)
Want to make one?
Here's what you need to know.

The Hoop Quilts Pattern (today releasing as a PDF download, Printed Pattern coming in a few weeks) includes:

*detailed step-by-step instructions
*full color photos and diagrams
*full scale templates
*links to video tutorials for additional help (if you want/need it - check out the Hoop Wrapping Video)

*Charm pack or Scrap Friendly

*instructions provided for 3 different sizes
(Hoops Quilts can be made with 12", 18" or 23" size large quilting hoops.)

*Add as much quilting as you like (none, hand or machine) - quilt top is fused to fusible fleece for body

I found my hoops at Hobby Lobby - they regularly carry those 3 sizes from Darice.  The largest one (23") is $6.99 and I used a 40% coupon.  So $4.20 for the largest size hoop isn't too shabby.  The other hoops are $5.99 (18") and $1.99 (12") full price.
The idea for Hoop Quilts came to me as I dedicated myself to finishing a long time wip embroidery sampler.  I was stitching in the hoop for months this fall.  Of course, I wanted to quilt in the hoop too.  That's IT I thought!  Ditch the block - and quilt in the ROUND.  The designs used in the pattern are built on basics.  Half-square triangles that end up in a circular "block".  It's a simple and stunning way to display favorite fabrics and embellish them with big stitches.
The largest of the hoops, shown above, is my absolute favorite.  I loooooove the two-tone look of the outside khaki fabric.  The little arrows in the darker print are a fab way to accent this piece.  I *might* have added them to the lighter khaki solid too.  

The fabrics used for all 3 hoops could not be any more PERFECT.  These beautiful saturated colors all come from Me+You Fabrics (Hoffman) and are Indah Batiks and Solids.  I started with a Warm Indah Batik FQ bundle (coming this spring) and added a couple aquas from the Honest hexagon precut I had in my stash.  These modern batik prints speak straight to my tone-on-tone lovin' heart.

If you want to get started on your own Hoop Quilt, check out the Pattern Shop.  The pattern is ON SALE today thru Wednesday, March 22, 2017 ONLY.  

Regular price is $12.  Shop today during the release sale and get your copy for $8.  $8.00!

EXCLUSIVE GIVEAWAY ALERT!  
I've prepped a special surprise giveaway just for you.  To celebrate the RELEASE of the HOOP QUILTS pattern, I have cut 3 custom 5" square charm sets of the Me+You Warm Indah Batiks I used in these samples to GIVEAWAY to you!  This FQ bundle is not yet available in shops.  I cut these prints just for you..  I'm giving away 2 here on the blog - 1 on Instagram.

  38. This would be perfect for my guest room. I have a framed picture that says, "Be Kind, Be Thoughtful, But above all else, Be Thankful". It is in autumn colors. The hoop quilt would be just right, next to it. We photos and artwork in similar colors and of a similar mood in that room; what it has been needing is some stitching!
