Kona Club Challenge - Boxy Pouch by Jennifer

 We're so happy to have Jennifer from A Quarter Inch from the Edge take the Kona Club Challenge this month. Jenn is a member of the Kona Club and love's solids. Jennifer used the colors we sent out in June 2013 for  Kona Club and made this great Boxy Pouch. We hope you enjoy this tutorial and make one of your own. We are giving away the fat quarters that Jennifer used in this tutorial so be sure to leave a comment on this post to win!

Don't forget to follow A Quarter Inch from the Edge for more inspiration and great projects!

Hi! I’m Jenn from A Quarter Inch from the Edge. I’ve been quilting for fourteen years and blogging about it for two! My blog, which began as a New Year’s Resolution, combines my love of writing, taking photos, and of course, quilting.  I live in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and am a member of the newly formed Maritime Modern Quilt Guild. When I’m not quilting, I’m a Middle School French teacher and a life-long Girl Guide. I love Kona solids to the point of distraction and am so pleased to have been given the opportunity to write a tutorial for the Kona Club Challenge. I’ve been a member of Sew Sisters’ monthly Kona Club since January 2013 and love tearing into that squishy envelope every month to see what treasures await.

Katarina finds inspiration everywhere and loves taking many pictures of things that move her, either by their shape, texture or color. 

This collection is absolutely stunning and you can buy all the fabrics from her Subtle Watermarks colorway here: Indelible



Somewhere between magic and reality is an Indelible world. Find exciting graphic weavings and stylized nature motifs that ripple through colored depths of pewter, turquoise and auburn.

Patterns from Highway 10 Designs

We are so excited about the newest addition to our quilt pattern section!

We now stock patterns from Highway 10 Designs designed by two absolutely wonderful Canadian quilters!
Kathy Schwartz and Lori Suss—two amazing professional long arm quilters from Manitoba—are the pattern designers behind Highway 10 Designs. Kathy and Lori met in Flin Flon, MB at a local guild meeting in 2003. An instant friendship began and soon they were co-hosting guild programs that affectionately became known as the "Lori & Kathy Show" because of their completely different approaches to working on any project.

In the fall of 2011 Lori moved to Dauphin and joined the local guild. The idea of designing their own quilt pattern to use as a Mystery project to be presented at both guilds is what sparked the start of their design business. From there Highway 10 Designs was born, named after the highway that connects their two towns. Now 5 patterns later, the drive to create is stronger than ever and they are looking forward to seeing what is around the next corner for Highway 10 Designs.

Besides being pattern designers both are professional Longarm quilters. Their dream of being coming longarm quilters came true for Kathy in 2009 and for Lori in 2012. Kathy is the owner of Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting located at Schist Lake near Flin Flon, MB. Lori is the owner of Night Owl Quilting and Dye Works located in Dauphin, MB.


We met both Kathy and Lori through Blogathon Canada a couple of years ago and we're thrilled to be bringing their patterns to you!
