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 am SO excited to finally be sharing my Second Star Quilt Pattern with you! I have been working on this pattern for quite some time. This is my very first quilt pattern, and I designed it using Sarah Jane's new fabric collection Peter Pan for Michael Miller Fabrics.
The title came from Peter Pan, and, more specifically, the phrase "second star to the right and straight on till morning." I wanted to incorporate two stars in the quilt, and I think the "twinkling star" produces a fun burst effect. I hope you love it as much as I do.
The block finished at 12''. The pattern includes the Flying Geese 4 x 4 method of construction and a quick way of making Half Rectangle Triangles.
I am grateful for all the makers that tested my pattern for me. I wanted to share all of their creative variations and versions. It's amazing...
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.

When I spotted the sweet floral border print, I knew I had to use it to make my Olivia's Basket Pattern. When I...
I am beyond excited to be releasing this pattern! It has been in the works for (dare I say it) years! I am so glad that I can finally set it free.
This bag made with one of my favorite products of all time, ByAnnie's Soft and Stable, that gives it great shape, and helps with ease of construct. I quilted straight lines on my striped fabric. And just to answer your questions now, the strap is made from a cotton fabric, and covered with a polypro strapping. It is not leather, but give the appearance of leather, (which I love!)
Includes a zippered pocket inside, to secure all your valuables. I love the opportunity to add a pop of color on the inside!
Also a back slip pocket for easy access.
It is available now as a PDF pattern that you can download. But don't worry, if you are a paper pattern...

My Olivia's Baskets pattern is being released just before the arrival of my 2nd niece, Olivia. My oldest sister is due with her first baby in just over a week! Yippee! I crafted these sweet fabric baskets for her nursery. They are made with Soft and Stable, which offers a perfect construction, and, most importantly, a design that's safe for babies.
The baskets on the cover feature Lella Boutique's fabulous new line, Sugar Pie, that will be available in...
