Rainbow of Patterns

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are feeling a little bit of spring coming your way.  We are starting to see colors pop up and so we are releasing our two most colorful barn quilt patterns in the shop this week.


You can now find Rainbow Hearts and the gorgeous Double Bear Paw patterns in the shop in the pattern sections.  Each pattern comes with our How to Paint a Barn Quilt guide and step by step instructions, as well as a pattern that can be sized to any size barn quilt board you want to paint on.


For the sample of the Rainbow Heart I painted on one of our Framed Barn Quilt Boards and love the way the wood frame set off the hearts.


This custom Double Bear Paw was painted on one of our Ready to Paint Barn Quilt Boards and it is one of our most popular pieces.  In the patterns you will learn our finishing technique to assure that your barn quilts will be safe from fading inside or outside of your home or barn!  For additional helps you can view our Tweetle Dee You Tube Channel and watch how we paint our barn quilts.

Have a wonderful week and remember "You Can" is the theme for this week.

Feathered Star Barn Quilt

Once in a blue moon a barn quilt will take me breath away...and this one has done it!  Introducing the newest pattern in our collections the Feathered Star Barn Quilt.  

Let me tell you what I love about this pattern.  The tiny pieces, the angles, the center star...the rounded angels surrounding the star.  I am smitten!  Then add the colors.  Seriously, a deep denim blue, gold, olive green, mango, violet, and nantucket blue.  All of these framed in a stained and distressed frame!!!  

This beauty has been added to our shop and as always, we can paint them in any color of your choosing.  We have several other color and pattern combinations in the works for this pattern and can't wait to paint it over and over again.  

Our shop has free shipping through February 4th!  This goes for anything and everything in the shop including furniture and our big customs.  Just use code FREESHIPPING at checkout.  

We hope you love this pattern as much as we do.  It has inspired me and I hope it does you too.

Tweetle Dee Winter Workshop

We are so excited to be offering our How to Paint Anything Barn Quilt Workshop! This workshop has been in planning for a long time.  So many of our friend's and customers have asked for a chance to paint bigger, better and more barn quilts than ever before, and the planets and stars aligned and we have an amazing day planned for you.


It will be held February 24th in beautiful Woodland Hills, Utah from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.  This will be a relaxed all day workshop where you will learn how to paint your own barn quilt and/or Barn Quilt Block Set.  You will be able to paint any size or type of barn quilt you wish, square or round.  We will have a yummy lunch and a tour of the Tweetle Dee Workshop as well, with a few other surprise goodies to go home with.

The basic price of $100.00 includes the class, a 22" barn quilt, painting supplies and of course lunch and the tour.  If you want to paint a barn quilt or product other than the 22" barn quilt, email us at tweetledeedesignco@gmail.com for additional pricing and to place your orders.  Otherwise, all you need to bring is your favorite colors of paint.

As always, we'll have some paints here and there will be plenty of extra boards available for purchase at the workshop and you can paint as many different boards as you wish!  If you want to paint two 22"'s ...yeah, if you want to paint a 33" and a block set...double yeah and if you want to paint one huge 44" all afternoon...well, then we will be there to cheer you on!  

We are so excited to have this day with you in our snowy and beautiful place.  If you have any questions please let us know and register soon as we only have space for 50 of you!  We hope you are as excited as we are!!!  (Happy dances might be happening as I type).

Holiday Cheese Ball Recipes - Fresh Living

One of our favorite holiday appetizers is the retro inspired cheese-ball.  I grew up enjoying these each Christmas holiday, but the ones we had then were the store bought generic cheese-balls.  When I grew up  and had my own kitchen I wanted to try to make my own and had so much fun trying different flavor combinations.  These cheese-balls are one of the most requested appetizers I make.  In fact, I never get to enjoy it because they are gone before I join my guests!



Today on Fresh Living  I am sharing three of my favorite cheese-balls.  A Smokey Gouda Bacon Mini Cheese Ball, a Cranberry Green Onion Cheese Ball, and a sweet Sugar Cookie Sprinkle Cheese Ball. These are so easy to make and the best thing especially this busy time of season is that they are no-bake, small mess, quick and easy to make.

Each of these recipes begin with cream cheese which you will want at room temperature.  It is helpful to have a stand mixer, but if you don't, you can hand mix these creations with no worries.  Most of the other ingredients can be picked up at your local grocery store pre-shredded and prepared, so again, super easy!



Cranberry Green Onion Cheese Ball

2 8 oz. Packages of Room Temperature Cream Cheese
2 Cups of Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Green Onion
2 Cups Cranraisins
1 Tablespoon Worcester Sauce
3 Cups Chopped Pecans

Add all ingredients to a mixer bowl and mix together until cheeses are blended well.  Use a spatula to semi-form the cheese mixture into a ball.  Use hands to form into a smooth ball.  Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours.  Remove from fridge and roll in chopped pecans pressing the nuts into the ball a little to cover the ball in chopped nuts.  Add to a platter and serve with hearty crackers, pita chips, or baguette slices.  Garnish with fresh rosemary springs.



Smokey Bacon Gouda Mini Cheese Balls

2 8 oz. Packages of Room Temperature Cream Cheese
2 Cups Shredded Gouda Cheese
2 Teaspoons of Italian Seasoning
1/2 Teaspoon of Smoked Paprika
A Dash of Hot Sauce
3 Cups of Chopped Pecans
1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Parsley
1 Cup Cooked and Chopped Bacon
Pretzel Sticks

In a mixer add the cheese, spices, and hot sauce and mix until everything is incorporated.  Place in refrigerator for one hour.  While cheese mixture is chilling, cook and chop bacon, and chop parsley.  Mix pecans, bacon and parsley and set aside.  Remove the mixture and roll into small balls.  Roll in garnishing mixture and set aside.  Stick a pretzel in the center and they are ready to go!  Makes 12-18 Mini Cheese Balls.



Sugar Cookie Sprinkle Cheese Ball

2 8 oz. Packages of Room Temperature Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup Softened Butter
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Teaspoons Molassas
2 Cups Sprinkles
Sweet Crackers and Cookies

Mix all ingredients except for the sprinkles in a mixer until smooth.  Refrigerate for an hour or two.  Take out of fridge and roll in sprinkles.  Set on platter surrounded by sweet cookies and crackers.  Hint - Word has it that Santa loves this treat with a cup of cocoa!

I hope you enjoy these family favorites and have a very merry holiday.  You can catch the Fresh Living segment on our Facebook page and by following the link to KUTV Fresh Living
