Pretty Handmades Blog Tour


I am so excited to be part of the Pretty Handmades book tour, Lauren Wright  aka Molly and Mama is the creative genius behind all the projects in this book! It is her first book. Everything Lauren makes is created with so much love, such sweet details! So many darling projects in here!


This book is full of fun little projects with the sweetest little details added to each one. I have so many more projects from here. 



I made these sweet bookmarks! I need to practice up on my embroidery skills, my stitches are not great. Lauren's stitches are perfect!

 I already need to make 2 more because two of my four daughters have already "called" these. And why wouldn't they?



The sweet strawberries with the little french knots are my favorite!  


Keep an eye on Molly and Mama's posts for a fun Giveaway!!

Weekend Quilting Book blog tour, my stop...




Today is my stop on the Weekend Quilting blog tour. Weekend Quilting is a great new book from Jemima Flendt of Tied with a ribbon. It is a great book with tons of projects, and many small projects which is great for me these summer days when I don't feel I can get big projects done. 

Weekend Quilting Showcase - Rectangle



I got my fabric from Willow Cottage Quilt Co, it is the new Tilda fabric line, Circus. The fabric is pretty precious, and it was a bit hard to cut into it. I am glad I did though!


My finished project! This darling little bunting. Just a sweet and easy project. Easy to follow instructions. And I LOVE all the flowers!



I've already hung it on the wall in the upstairs hallway. It is just sweet. I plan on making several more projects from this book. I was glad to be included on this tour. Below you will find links to several other bloggers, all made projects from this book. Serious eye candy!

Bella Skill Builders Part 3

Are you following along Fat Quarter Shop's Bella Skill Builders?

This month was PINEAPPLE BLOCKS! I was so excited to try pineapple blocks!


And now I want to make an entire quilt with them.


Pinks and blues and grays for this quilt. I'm really excited to see how this quilt will come together, so different than anything I've ever done.


It is rotary cut (no paper piecing) but I did use a special Pineapple Block ruler that I got from FQS. It's the only way I've made it but it wasn't hard so I'm saying it's the way to go!


You can look at the past few posts to see part 1 and 2. And check out Fat Quarter Shop to make your own!

A little Coney Island/new pattern sneak peak...

 Oh how I love this new Fig Tree and Co fabric line, Coney Island. The prints are just so pretty. Darling florals. And the colors, navy, coral, yellow, soft apple green, just go so well together!


I will not ever square up half square triangles without Bloc-loc rulers, and a rotary mat, a good spinning one like this, its called Matilda (no endorsements, just LOVE these products)


Don't you love these fabric combinations? And the pretty pretty flowers?



I should have a pattern ready at the end of April, I am really happy with this one!


Hope you like the sneak peak!
