It's So Simple

I have been having fun these past few weeks working on a custom order all made with The Simple Life!

I love these prints. This bunting banner print is near and dear to my heart.
A pinwheel and prairie points quilt. (Tutorial by Jodi Nelson at Pleasant Home.)

A patchwork pillow. This fabric was so much fun to fussy cut.

I also made bunting banners, both large and small. A cathedral window mini pillow. A mini quilt to be used as a counter hot pad. I don't think I will ever tire of aqua and red.

I spent the afternoon getting everything packaged and ready to ship. It is always such a relief to finish a big order, and I have a stack of orders ready to be filled, but I am taking a break tonight so I can watch all the glitz and glamour in Hollywood!


  1. Job well done!!! Everything is so delightful... right down to the packaging! Put your feet up, rest your fingers, and enjoy tonight's Hollywood Hoopla!

  14. Beautiful work as usual Debbie. I'm sure your customers love to get your packages.

  15. Debbie: everything is so beautiful and perfect. I bought my rotary cutter, my cutting pad and all like you said, I am trying a 9 patch and when I sew them together I cannot get my squares to line up. I was very careful cutting them out, I even put a piece of tape down 1/4" from my needle so I could sew very straight, but they just won't line up right. Please help!!! What am I doing wrong? Thanks so much, Joy

    1. Thanks Joy! My first quilts were full of mistakes, and I still have seams that don't match. It really is matter of practice, perfect seams, cutting and matching seams while pinning. Make sure you are pressing your seams before pinning. That helps too! Good Luck!!
