Texture Magic Roof and Pattern Tester Success!

30 comments
The first time I used Texture Magic was a while ago and I didn't understand the shrink ratio so I kind of messed up and my little idea failed because of inexperience and poor planning. But since then I've listened to Nedra talk about Texture Magic and actually read the instructions (shocking, I know). So my 2nd go at Texture Magic was fun. I'm making up another sample quilt of my "Kettles in the Kitchen" quilt. and wanted to see what Texture Magic would do for the roof of one of the little kitchens.
It turned out really cute. I think when I quilt the sample quilt I'll just run a few quilting stitches over a few rows and it will look like I've super quilted the roof in a tile pattern. I will definitely do this again! I really love how this kitchen turned out with the apple fabric fussy cut as trim.
I've had some wonderful ladies proof reading my pattern copy for me and also wonderful sewers proofing the pattern. And thank goodness for them because they have helped me with some silly mistakes I would have missed. I appreciate them so much, especially right now when I have not a moment to spare with my upcoming events. The above kettles were made by Diane. Thank you so much for the photo Diane. The kettles are so darling. They make me very happy.
And Lotta in Sweden finished her small version of my "Kettles in the Kitchen" quilt and shared some photos with me. I love it. It turned out so cute! She made it with a Christmas theme and it couldn't be sweeter. What fabulous angels I have watching out for me. Thank you girls so much, all of you that have pitched in to help me.

Oh, my gosh! Nanette your Kettles in the Kitchen pattern is adorable!
Your rooftop makes me want to try texture magic. I've been holding out, probably because I'm afraid I'll mess it up. I think I'll give this a try now. :)
Thanks for the inspiration!

I agree ... the pattern is adorable; and both Lotta's and Diane's samples are fantastic! I am a big fan of rick rack, so I love the way Diane used it; and OMG on your "textured magic roof!" I love it!

I love this quilt. The houses and tea kettle are nice together. What a clever idea to use that textured magic for the roof. I've seen it before but wasn't interested. Now I am. Thanks for sharing.

Nanette! That pattern is so cute! It is great to have proof readers and "proof makers". Good luck with all you upcoming events I am sure it is hard to stay focused at least that is what happens to me! Thanks again for sharing!

Looks like you're putting together two of your blocks that are my favorites---cottages and kettles. Neat pattern! Did I miss the unveiling or is it a work in progress?

Niesz Vintage Home said...

Well, isn't that a fun little texture thingy! It makes the fabric look similar to plisse. And its perfect for the roof!

Love the tea kettles, too.

I have a package of Texture Magic that I've not used yet. I keep trying to figure out what to do with it. I'm not wanting to do a purse.....so as soon as I figure out what to do, I'll dive into it. Your roof idea is a cute one!
