Stripology Mixology 2 pairs 13 innovative quilts with cocktails to match, teaming Gudrun’s cocktail-making hobby with her love of quilting.

(By the way, you can always cut your own fabric to follow her patterns if you prefer.) Born and raised in Iceland, Gudrun began…

  • Advice Is Nice!

    We asked, you answered! What advice would you give a new quilter? We were happily surprised at how many of you were kind enough to offer advice for a beginning quilter. There were so many great responses, we wanted to share some with you. A lot of our friends advised, “Have fun!” It seems obvious, but sometimes the stress of learning something new can take the fun out of it.

  • Keep Calm and Sew a Mask

    Let’s make a difference! In response to the growing need for personal protective equipment (PPE), the CDC is now approving the use of home-sewn masks. When combined with face shields or filters, these masks can lengthen the life of protective equipment.* At Keepsake Quilting and Pineapple Fabrics, our caring staff is cutting kits and sewing masks for this great need.
