Hopscotch and Freckles Baby Quilt

The fun team at Poppie Cotton invited me to be a part of the Hopscotch and Freckles fabric tour, and I couldn't wait to play with this cute fabric!


These cute prints were meant to be made into a baby quilt, so I took a look through some of my quilting books and settled on this cute quilt.


The pattern is from the Spelling Bee book by Lori Holt, as was lots of fun to put together. I am a big fan of simple patchwork quilts, but the best part was making the letters to spell the name of friend's cute new granddaughter. To fill out the name block and add extra color, I added a sawtooth block.


I am still deciding how I want to quilt this. Straight lines are my go to, but I'm thinking some fun FMQ might be really cute.

I know for sure that I am going to use a scrappy binding to finish this off. I hope Eris and her Mama love this quilt as much as I do!!

Farmgirls Unite Fabric Tour


Good morning! Welcome to the Farmgirls Unite Fabric Tour hosted by the talented team at Poppie Cotton. This fabric line is so fun and colorful, and perfect for making cute Farmgirl inspired projects.

I decided to take a basic zipper pouch and add as much cuteness as I could. Hexies have always been a favorite, but I am not a fan of all the hand stitching required. I decided to back my fabric  pieces with heat and bond, then trace using a 1" hexie template.  I cut them out and ironed them in a cute pattern on the pouch. Then I used a cute decorative stitch to mimic hand stitching to attach them to my pouch. I love how these prints look together!

 I added three cute hexies to the back.

I used the novelty print for the lining. It makes me smile every time I unzip the pouch. I hope I've inspired you to take a few hours and make something cute!

Dots and Posies Fabric Tour

 Happy Monday! Today is my turn on the Dots and Posies Fabric Tour, hosted by the amazing team at Poppie Cotton.

The fabric line is so adorable, with lots of, you guessed it, Dots and Posies. 


My favorite print is this cute "cheater" hexie print that needed to be made into a cute project bag.


I love the mix of florals and stripes, along with sweet little blue birds. I chose to mix this with a simple linen, and lined it with Dot and Posies coordinating stripes! I cannot wait to use this as a binding on an upcoming project.


I have so many plans for this cute fabric, and if you'd like to get more ideas here is the list of all the amazing members of the blog tour.


Happy Sewing!!!

Woodland Songbirds Fabric Tour

Hello! Today is my turn on the Woodland Songbirds Fabric Tour!! I am so excited to share this adorable fabric line by the amazing team at Poppie Cotton.


The prints in this line are so pretty, and I really wanted them to be the "star".


I made a cute baby sized quilt using a tutorial I found on Pinterest called the Superstar quilt. This was really fun to put together, and I may have made another one already!! It is a great way to use any charm packs you may have, or you could size up the quilt by using larger squares cut from fat quarters or yardage.


I'm having a hard time deciding where to use this quilt as it looks really pretty almost everywhere I put it!! 


It was fun doing an off center grid pattern for the quilting. It took a little extra time, but I think the result was worth it.

 Be sure to follow along with more cute projects!!

Cherished Moments Fabric Tour

Happy Friday!! Welcome to the Cherished Moments Fabric Tour!

I knew the moment I first saw this adorable fabric that I had to make a sweet baby quilt! I wanted a pattern that would show off the cute prints, and this pattern fit the bill.

My little sewing buddy is always available to help!

I used the pink and blue fabrics to keep it light and fresh. The text fabric is one of my favorites.

I couldn't resist whipping up a sweet little scalloped bunting banner to match!

This will be perfect for my next baby shower!

Country Roads Fabric Tour

Hello! Welcome to the Country Roads Fabric Tour hosted by the amazing ladies at Poppie Cotton. This is such a strange time in our world, but it is fun to be part of a virtual tour. Especially one called Country Roads. For those of you of a certain age, this brings to mind a very popular song from the 1970's. In fact, lyrics from this awesome song are one of the prints!! I love the mix of pinks and navy blue, as well as the text prints and florals!!

I made two versions of my favorite kind of comfort sewing. Patchwork bags. I love mixing fabric with linen, and Country Roads was perfect a combo. I loved that this line had some stripes which are my favorite for quilt bindings and bag casings!!

I have also started a quilt but this will be a long term project over the summer. I am using the Bow Tie Flower Quilt pattern by Quilters Candy.

I hope you are all safe and well and soon we all can be traveling Country Roads!!

Daisy Mae Fabric Tour

Hi Everyone!
I'm back to share with you the super cute fabric called Daisy Mae by the super talented ladies at Poppie Cotton.

I think I used every scrap of fabric I had to make all kinds of cute things.

The first thing I usually do when using a new fabric is to cut some 2.5" squares and make a bag. There is something so satisfying to me about using those cute little squares.

I love the mix of the pinks and charcoal grays. So pretty.

Then I had to make another bag using all patchwork squares.

Next up is a quilt.  I chose to do some crosshatch quilting which I think looks pretty darn cute with these awesome hexies!!! I followed this tutorial if you want to try a hexie quilt of your own. It is really fun to make!!
It still needs binding, but I couldn't wait to use it!!

And I had to make a cute little bunting banner to match.

All the rest of the pink fabrics that are from Daisy Mae, Wanderings, Gingham Farmhouse and Prairie Sisters were put to good use to make this very girly Scrappy Heart Quilt. I made the baby size version which is so perfect as a kitchen table quilt.

I hope you found some inspiration to go get some cute Daisy Mae and get sewing!! xoxo
