I am so excited to be participating in the Prairie Sisters Farmhouse Fabric Tour. I love the connections I've made in the quilting community, and I was so pleased when I crossed paths with the talented Jina Barney. She asked if I would be willing to make some of my Olivias Baskets and Hello Pouches as samples out of her new fabric collection—Prairie Sisters by Poppie Cotton, which is a new fabric company started by her and Lori Wood Studios. I happily agreed, and got to sewing with these darling prints.
I made my Olivia's Baskets in all three sizes included in the pattern. Olivias Baskets is a great beginner pattern and a perfect match with these springtime prints. These Baskets are also reversible!
Side note: I am also hosting a Olivia's Baskets Sew along...
Hello friends! Its been a busy summer here for me as I've been preparing to leave for Africa with Mothers Without Borders—TOMORROW! I've also been house hunting, working on new patterns, and trying to keep up with all the lovely quilts I receive every day. With all of this stuff going on, I'm very grateful I was able to squeeze in a bit of leisure-sewing with this beautiful new fabric collection from Kelly Parker Smith called Windsor Garden by Sweet Bee Designs.
Next up, I'm going to share some more sneak peaks of the two new patterns that will be released very soon. I just couldn't wait! I haven't quite set a release date yet, but it will be very soon after I return from Africa. If you sign up for my newsletter, you'll be the first to know.

I was more than thrilled when Shayla from Sassafras Lane asked if I would participate in her Foundations Fabric Blog Tour. Foundation is a fabric line designed by Shayla for Windham Fabrics with the perfect rainbow palette.
Ever since I released my Hello Pouches pattern I have wanted to do a little improv piecing work on the base of the pouches. These fabrics gave me the perfect opportunity. I especially loved quilting my pouches with these prints. Each hand drawn print created the most perfect quilting lines to follow.
I accented the rainbow patchwork with mini pipping which highlighted the colors so nicely.
I am also hosting a Sew-A-Long through the year of 2018. #12minisin12months A mission to create more mini quilts for my sewing space while connecting to other creatives and improving and learning new skills. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to create my February Mini from this Foundation fabric. Here...
