Posy Garden Blog Tour

Hello there! I am super excited to be a part of the Posy Garden Blog Tour!! In case you don't know, Posy Garden is the latest fabric designed by the amazing Carina Gardner for Riley Blake Designs.

I've had the pleasure of sewing with this fabric for most of the summer, and there couldn't be a prettier fabric to sew with!

A million ideas went through my mind and I really wanted to make all the the things! But I knew for sure that I wanted to make a Sew Together Bag with this adorable fabric.

My favorite part of making Sew Together Bags is designing the exterior. The insides are always pretty much the same, but the exterior can be almost anything you would like. It's a fun way to play with patchwork on a small scale. I used 3" mini granny squares to start with, and added cute patchwork borders. I really love the navy blue as binding.

I also made a baby quilt using this pattern. I found out that a friend of mine is going to have a sweet baby granddaughter, and her daughter's favorite colors just happen to be all the colors of Posy Garden. Pinwheels on a crisp white background is possibly one of my most favorite quilt designs.

I added a 2.5" border all the way around and once again I used my favorite wavy quilting and am happy with the texture and feel of the quilt.

I used the navy blue dot as a binding on the quilt too! It keeps it from being too girly and little more modern. Just like the baby's mama!

Happy sewing!!


  1. Just saw this on IG and had to come over and take a look. Beautiful fabric and the bag is perfect :)

  2. I love love love that bag and I even put it in my Craftsy cart but oh me oh my.....3 zippers inside and on out? It looks very complicated so I will have to really really think about it. I love the designs and fabrics you used too. Pinwheels are one of my favorite designs and I'm in the middle of making over 100 off them for the Lori Holt tractor quilt. I have a traditional John Deere green and yellow theme but then I came across a pink John Deere tractor fabric so I'm also making a pink and purple one too. Everything is so darn cute I want to make it all! And the fabric choices are out of this world anymore. Thanks for sharing.

    1. There is a wonderful tutorial by the Quilt Barn to use when you put your first Sew Together Bag together. The zippers are the easy part!! :)

  3. I love the Sew Together bag, the sweet patchwork works so well with this design. x

  4. Beautiful projects. That baby quilt is lovely.

  5. Debbie, your projects are beautiful as always!

  6. Thanks for using my little pattern! It was such a happy surprise to stumble upon your post and beautiful baby quilt!

  7. I bought the pattern, zippers, and fabric. Having never made a zipper bag before, this should be a challenge!


I am so happy you are here, and I love reading your comments!! I will answer any questions you may have right here, and I love to visit your blogs as often as I can!!
