Dreamer’s Star Quilt Pattern Release

It’s been a little while since my last blog post, but I have been working on some really exciting things in my neck of the woods (and I haven’t even been snowed in by the monster snow storm!)

I am SO excited to be releasing my first independent quilt pattern!  I absolutely ADORE geometric quilt patterns that pack a lot of punch and created this pattern that is available on Craftsy and in my Etsy shop.  The pattern is an instant PDF download, so you can enjoy it immediately 🙂  

The pattern comes with instructions for 3 different sizes-a mini quilt, a 64″ x 64″, and a 80″ x 80″ quilt.  

One of my favorite things about this pattern is that if you aren’t great at combining lots of patterns or colors, all this pattern needs is really 2 contrasting or 2 coordinating fabrics to work well.  But if you’re a little more adventurous, go for a scrappy look and be blown away!  
Here are a few samples of the Dreamer’s Star Quilt Pattern:

Dreamer’s Star Quilt 64″ x 64″ made with Michael Miller Cotton Couture in Midnight and Lime

Dreamer’s Star Mini Quilt made in scrappy blacks and purples


Dreamer’s Star Mini Quilt made with Michael Miller Cotton Couture and Painter’s Canvas

I hope you’ll check out this pattern that really packs a punch and when you make it, please use the hashtag #dreamersstarquilt and tag me on Instagram @kustomkwilts 

I SO look forward to what you’ll make with this pattern :))

Happy Quilting!

Something in the water…

There must be something in the water…or maybe I’m just at that season in my life where the wedding showers have ended and baby showers are now the reigning social event!  That being said, there’s nothing I love more than designing and putting together cute baby quilts.  Let’s face it…quilts are very time consuming.  BUT if you do small ones, they take significantly less time, and are loved the same!  It’s really fun to play around with layout and quilt design when you know the process will be quick and fun and you’ll learn something from the quilt you create.  I recently did a quilt for a baby boy with all gray fabric, and really loved the mother-to-be’s registry choices.  I could tell that she had very modern taste and would probably be okay with me throwing something together that was a little Libs Elliott inspired.


This was such a fun quilt to put together, and even more fun to quilt a little ruler work into the design.

And a quilt for a baby girl (with more more color), that I designed by changing up the typical chevron design slightly.  

Challenge yourself to play with color and design and sew up a quick baby quilt for a friend or family member.  It is a gift that they’ll love, and probably cherish for many years to come. It’s also a great gift if you use two layers of dense batting and the quilt can also be used as a playmat.
