Today’s Featured Item! Organic Stained Glass Quilt

Today’s featured item of the day is this lovely stained glass quilt.  It is a generous crib sized quilt, measuring 34 x 54 and is made from organic cotton materials.  The top is a print from our latest series of fabrics.  Picture this.  My oldest son was on a campout, dsc_0300-1the youngest son was spending the night with his Grandparents, and the girl and I had the house to ourselves. We hosted a takeover of the living room, put two large yard sale tables together and brought out every dormant paint brush, colored pencil, marker, and turned on the cheesiest movie from my 80’s childhood, Sixteen Candles.  Then we started playing.  Taking chances with color and designs, because amongst the movie and snacks and hanging out together, the last thing either of us was concerned with was creating overly careful designs.  We just wanted to enjoy the process and we did.  It’s like the unicorn of parenting, a night like that. This was one of my daughter’s designs.  We named it Stained Glass Window, because obviously…it resembles a stained glass window.  Aren’t we so clever.  It is made from 100% organic cotton on the top, and 100% organic cotton on the back which has been hand dyed a pretty sky blue, which also serves as the binding.  It was wrapped around from the back of the quilt to the front and machine stitched to the quilt.  I have a feeling this will continue to be one of my favorite prints for a long time.

Featured Item of the Day – Organic Cotton Knit Blankets

It’s Monday, so that means it’s time for sharing a new product for the week!  This makes two weeks in a row that I have actually nailed this little goal of mine, which actually makes this THE most “pulled together” time of my entire life.  No kidding.  I thrive off order and chaos in equal measure, and see the balancing of entropies as the ultimate “LEVELING UP” of life.  DSC_0388To have a little chaos, a little order, and a constant flowing dance between the two.  Anyway, I distract myself.  The featured item of the day is a simple product, but a brand new one for Kari Goodwin Quilts.  These organic cotton knit blankets are great for a lot of reasons.  Here are a few:

  1. Four different sizes available!  From newborn baby to kid off to college with their first dorm room, there is a size for everyone.  The material is fairly stretchy and lightweight, and would make a good swaddling blanket.  In the larger sizes, the material is heavyweight enough to make a good throw style blanket.
  2. Made from the only material I use, GOTS certified organic cotton.
  3. These are printed in the USA with my own exclusive designs, made by me and my kids, which my favorite activity with my kids, so the purchase of this item actually encourages and supports art in my household! (not kidding.)
  4. With this product I strived to bring the best materials for the LEAST about of cost to you.  As such, these blankets are simply serged around the edges, which is great for the stretchy material, and they go together very quickly.  DSC_0163 (1)This allows me to pass on the savings to you, while still offering a great product, full of creativity and uniqueness.

That is all, back to work for me!   Happy Monday Ya’ll!  Here are links to my Etsy shop karigoodwinquilts.etsy.com and my website karigoodwinquilts.com .   Be on the lookout for these new items to hit the shops soon! DSC_0324 (3)
