Another Sharing Day! Wonderful Projects!

 OK these bibs just make me smile.  These were created by Alissa Forman of Canada.   How fun are these ties!  We thought you would enjoy them! (I think I am going to use a lot of exclamation marks in this blog)  Thank you Alissa for sharing these with us.  These fabrics are a combination of Riley Blake Designs All Star 2 Collection,  Apple of My Eye, and Robert Kaufman's Remix Dots.
 This adorable quilt was created by Margaret Cureton.  Click on the picture to see the cute butterflies, birds, flowers, and trees.  This Riley Blake Happier Collecton by Deena Rutter was another great seller.  We love how the squares show off the cute prints.  The pop of orange and aqua blue really make this a cheerful quilt.  Thank you Margaret!  We love it!
 Katy J from the Knackatorium created this gorgeous quilt from one of our Art Gallery Modernology Blue Bundls.  She also added some additional fabrics.  We are loving these blues!  This vintage modern quilt looks so soft - I am thinking this quilt and a good book on a crisp summer evening - Perfect!  Link to Katy's shop click here
This sweet, fresh bunting came from Kelly Bennett from Australia.  Thank you Kelly for sharing this with us.  This was made with the Flora Collection.  Kelly has a shop on Etsy named Colour Therapy.  Click here for link.  We love this Flora Collection designed by Lauren & Jessi Jung for Moda.  We have some charm packs left in our shop.

 Wow!  An entire bedding collection.  This beautiful collection was designed by Caralee Sanders of Once Upon a Childhood.  We love these fun puffy quilts.  Look at the fun owl pillow with the cording trim.  And the diaper stacker - so so nice.  Caralee has an Etsy shop and there are many more bedding ensembles to choose from.  Click here to see more  You really want to see her shop.  Thank you Caralee!  These fabrics are from the Urban Zoologie Collection.
 Have you seen the fun soft play toys and quilts with the tabs for babies to grab on to? This quilt was designed by Kayla Webb.  We love the fun bright colors.  This collection is from Robert Kaufman's Ready Set Go collection by Ann Kelle.  What a fun quilt!  Thank you Kayla for sharing!
Ashley Pettibone of Sparrow Designs made this metal frame clutch from the popular Echo Ruta Fabric in navy designed by Lotta Jansdotter.   Wouldn't you love one of these for summer?  I've visited Ashley's shop and these versatile clutches all have high quality metal frames.  She will even make custom orders for you. Thank you Ashley for sharing this with us!  Love it!  Link to Sparrow Designs click here

Amy from Connecticut just finished this beautiful tradtional quilt combining reproduction fabrics from the 1862 Battle Hymn Collection designed by Barbara Brackman for Moda and Put Your Heart In It Traditional Fabrics from Buggy Barn.  The pattern is from "The Civil War Sewing Circle" Book. Amy added her own borders and corner squares to give it more "umph".  The design of small squares and large lets the eye travel easily across the quilt and blends the colors together nicely.  Fabulous color placement Amy - we love the pop of coral and red!  We now have  a nice collection of traditional prints to choose from.  Thank you Amy!  We love this quilt!
A Perfect Star!  Elena of CarolinaSquirrel designs fun mini quilts made from ...yes you guessed it....SELVAGES.  And you always threw those away!  She has several other quilts in her shop to choose from but my favorites are all the fun projects she has from selvages.  Really really creative.  You need to see the leaf table runner in her Etsy shop. Thanks so much Elena for sharing this star with us.  None of these customers have asked me to promote their shops....I just can't help it since I love their projects.  click here for link to carolinasquirrell

Have a wonderful weekend.  We hope you find a little sewing time!

This one is also on my "to do" list.  I just love this triangle design.  I can see this done with other fabrics for a boys quilt...don't you think?  Hopscotch was also designed by Camille Roskelly.  Did you go to her blog link above and see this quilt?  Notice the grey polka dot as the background fabric.  Love this!

Grey is In!  This quilt was designed by in house machine quilter Leisha Farnsworth.  We almost sold out of the kits before we even had time to list them.  This pattern is the easy Disappearing Nine Patch. Just sew 9 squares together, cut down the middle, rotate the blocks, and sew them back together.  Just google disappearing nine patch and you will find free tutorials and videos.
Leisha selected fun swirls and bright teals from our Adornit and Scribble Collections for this quilt.  We only have two kits left.  Contact us at if you are interested in a kit. You will receive 5" squares cut for you and border and binding fabric.  You can also make this quilt with any of our charm packs.  It takes 108 squares.
A perfect 4th of July Quilt!  This Charming Stars Quilt was a pattern from Moda Bake Shop designed by Stefanie Roman. We love this gorgeous pattern and thought it would be perfect a summer 4th of July quilt. Plus, it is out of charm squares!  This pattern sews up quickly and it is fairly easy to make. Only corner square seams to match.  We have made this quilt using the Prairie Paisley Charm Squares. You may also select Reunion, Friendship, or 1862 Battle Hymn Charm packs in your kit. Just send us a convo and we can set it up for you. 
I love how the stars seem to sparkle.  If you squint they seem to run together. 
 I put Minky on the back of this quilt and it is already a favorite with my adult guys!  They love the softness.  We just sold out of the Ivory Minky but we are getting more for you!  These are selling fast...order yours soon.
