Creative Bug Contest

Victory Patterns is an Independent Pattern company out of Toronto Canada run by one lovely lady named Christine. After many years teaching sewing lessons she quit her job as a costume maker to become a pattern maker and has put out 10 wonderfully different designs that we here at Harts, just love.  We have made many of her patterns and love they way they are laid out, and are very easy to follow. Some of her designs are really easy, and some are more difficult so there is a pattern that can full fill every sewists needs, plus they are all adorable.

We are all totally stoked on these new quilted cottons from Riley Blake! They are brand new, and already super popular! These fabrics feature some of Riley Blake’s most popular designs: chevrons, skulls, mustaches, and glasses! Each fabric is backed with a complementary polka-dot, and quilted using a soft poly batting!

The most awesome thing about these fabrics is how quickly you can whip up a cute handmade project! All you need is some bias tape for binding and you’ll have an adorable quilt! It pretty much makes itself, talk about instant gratification :)
