cape ann quilts

Now that Cape Ann is finally showing up in stores, here are a few quilts made from the collection. First up is the quilt we designed specifically for the fabrics.

When I went to the Moda website to find the link to this free, downloadable quilt pattern (Be sure to look at the last page of the instructions where they put each swatch in a little dress shape. So cute!). I also noticed that the company offers darling little tags you can download for your Cape Ann projects. (To find and download them, click on this link and type in “Cape Ann.” Then click on the yellow scissors icon next to download the labels.)

You can also download and print clever informational sheets about the collection, taken directly from the big, hard-to-get-your-hands-on catalog, called the Playbook, that Moda produces for each Quilt Market. These pages are really well-designed and show off all the fabrics in addition to project ideas, coordinating patterns, etc. They’re a lot of fun, I think. Aren’t they clever over at Moda? Love them.

Ok, next. Here is a simple quilt kit from Fat Quarter Shop that shows off the prints nicely, especially the Virginia’s Closet print with all my little dress drawings. You can buy the kit here.

I’ve seen some other quilts popping up all over the place. I love this little one over at Pink Suede Shoe, which she made from the little 2 1/2″ square sample packs (we call them petit fours) we hand out at Market. No quilt pattern for this, but it doesn’t really require one, does it? Very quick and simple.

So where can you buy the fabrics? Well, a quick search brought up the following right away, with many more to follow as the fabrics arrive:

Fat Quarter Shop, obviously

Hancocks of Paducah

I can’t wait to see what you make with the fabrics! A few items have already shown up on the Cape Ann Flickr group. We hope you’ll join them and show off your projects, too.

    Does anyone know if the brushed cotton can be considered “Suitable for children’s sleepwear?” When shopping for fabrics locally, I often see notices that fabric is “not intended/suitable for children’s sleepwear.” I recently purchased the sleepover pajama pattern and would like to find some safe material to make them!
