I am a huge lover of all things plants, but until recently I thought my green thumb was only functional outside. Surely I couldn't keep houseplants alive, could I? Last fall I couldn't stand the idea of not having something green around me, so I brought in lots of my potted plants and have gradually added to my collection every time I pass a nursery! I've lost a few here and there, but overall I'm pretty happy with how my indoor green thumb has been developing. I found this beautiful snake plant for a steal, but didn't have a pot...

Grab your copy of the Snowflake Quilt pattern as a PDF download here or as a paper copy here! We've got a new quilt to show you today! I'm doing my best to enjoy the season and embrace it, and I guess a quilt with a giant snowflake is a great way to do just that. We've revamped the Snowflake Quilt we made last year, added some details and borders to make another size option, and we are happy to say it's ready! The Snowflake Quilt can be made in either a crib/large wall hanging size or throw size. I...

Introducing our newest pattern - the Traveling Checkerboard! The zipper pocket on the back creates convenient checker storage making it easy to take on the go. I am passionate about encouraging the use of handmade items with kids, especially my own. When they choose a handmade toy or blanket over a store bought one it makes all my hard work seem worth it! So I'm always looking for ways to bring more handmade items into our home, but in a practical, useful sort of way. (Hence the Bucket Tote, the Floor Pouf, you'll notice there's a trend there!) That's where...

Hi guys - Angelique here! I'm sort of new to Modern Textiles - I started working full time at Modern Textiles in May, but I've been teaching here for a couple years and have been a customer since the beginning. If we haven't met yet, I hope we get to soon! I'm in the shop weekdays and a few Saturdays here and there. Hope you'll say hello next time you stop in the shop. Today I am excited to share with you a little tutorial for a garbage bag pouch. About 6 months ago my husband and I adopted a...

Cuteness factor overload! I am so excited about how this bucket tote turned out! Turns out our medium sized bucket tote pairs perfectly with a block from the Book Nerd quilt pattern. We got the Book Nerd quilt pattern in the shop a few weeks ago at the recommendation of a customer (you guys know the best stuff!!) I was so excited to try it, but I knew a whole quilt was not going to fit in my schedule right now. So I decided to try it on a bucket tote - it would be the perfect spot to corral...
