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...
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...
I'm so happy it's finally here! It's the release of my new pattern Hello Pouches. I have been blown away from the support and excitement for this pattern! I have loved the process of creating this pattern. I played with the idea for several years, and now it is here!
The pattern includes instructions for all four sizes. These pouches have a quilted base for great stability, but also include a great vinyl top for easy viewing of all your trinkets.
I made the bags on the cover with Vanessa's (from V and Co) fabulous new Confetti Metallic Ombre' fabric, shipping to stores in January.
