Check out my latest collection: Mix It Up!
9.11.2013

As I was developing the concept for Mix It Up! I knew I wanted to create a collection that encompassed two things specifically.  I wanted it to be gender neutral and I wanted it to be a stash builder collection.  I get many requests that I definitely keep in mind and many people ask for more “guy friendly” collections.  Mix It Up! offers so much.  With a myriad of plaids, stripes and geometric prints that incorporate practically every color from our Quilter’s Candy palette, the possibilities of this collection are endless. 

One of my favorite quilts in this collection – Star Crazy Quilt by Mari Martin – is such a great way of creating a predominately neutral quilt, with  the small pops of color that add some fun.

Another favorite, String Bean Quilt by Loft Creations; I just love the design aesthetic of this so much and the color combination is awesome. 

If you want to take this collection in a bright and cheery direction, Tangled Tracks Quilt by Kristin Gassaway is a perfect option.  Talk about a rainbow of a quilt, her clever design incorporates hues from Mix It Up! as well as Quilter’s Candy prints to make this rainbow effect, which is just so striking.

Up and Go Diaper Bag by Susan Terpin is such a clever design and color combination because it provides a great option for men and woman to have a diaper bag that doesn’t scream “girly”, but in fact is “hip & cool”.

I think the variety of this collection, as well as the kits that were all designed with it, are such a great mix of bright and neutral, country and modern, conservative and playful.  That is exactly what I wanted to happen with this collection.  I hope you find it just as enjoyable and friendly to work with as I do.

    I love the Neutral Love fabric by Country Essentials Mari Martin and the Checkerboard Star pattern by Mari Martin. Does anyone know where I could buy the Neutral Love Fabric since Connecting Threads is all out of it? I have read other posts from people with buyer’s regrets too. So sad :(.

    Hi Sharleen,
    We only sell our fabrics at Connecting Threads. If you’re looking for something in particular, you can ask other bloggers on Quilt With Us or even on our Facebook site. We do plan on bringing another version of Neutral Love out, so keep your eyes peeled.
