I recently discovered a stash of Scrumptious in a local quilt shop. I’m talking a serious stash. Layer cake, jelly roll, and several charm packs. I picked up the layer cake, not quite sure if I would use it, or even keep it. But, it didn’t take long to see why the attraction to this Bonnie and Camille collection is so wide spread. It’s gorgeous.
The heart pattern is one widely available for free, and I used the one provided by Cluck-Cluck-Sew. It’s a fast and easy pattern, great for beginners, and my two oldest kids loved making their own. Not sure what they’re going to turn their hearts into, maybe pillows or pot holders, but I turned mine into this.
These alphabet blocks from Moda came together so well. The kids had a blast spelling stuff with the blocks and playing hopscotch on them, I hope they like the finished quilts as much. Please see my previous post on this for links. 🙂
I highly recommend doing two of these quilts (or more) at a time. I made two this round, and may attempt three at a time the next go ’round. I figured if I was going to take the time to cut and piece 26 different blocks, I may as well do two of each, and I’m glad I did.
My oldest picked flannel zebra print backings for these, and they’re pretty wild. 😉
Middle Little is the most energetic creature I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Her thirst for knowledge is the only thing that rivals her energy level. She’s been wanting to learn to sew (sit on my lap while I sew) for ages, so this weekend, she did.
Well, Hello Darling. If you haven’t already noticed this beautiful fabric collection from Moda, go take a gander. It’s pretty, cheerful, and incredibly adaptive. I love the bright happy colors, vibrant prints, and bold florals. Add in the all around vintage look to it, and my heart swoons.
I had snagged a jelly roll of this beauty back in June, and was waiting to find just the right project for it. Once we got back from our trip at the end of August, I was able to get my hands on another, plus a layer cake and a bit of yardage. Finally felt safe enough to start cutting.
I decided on the Floral Bouquet pattern from the book “Jelly Roll Quilts” by Pam & Nicky Lintott.
Because no straight line was ever cut with wine, hubby brought this home for me. I’m the youngest sister, not the middle sister, but our middle daughter is nicknamed “Rollercoaster”. 🙂
Ever since I can remember, I have loved snuggling under quilts at my Grandmother’s house. She’d tell me who once wore the dress that the quilt fabrics had been made from. It seemed so magical that something that was once an article of clothing could become a quilt. To this day, I adore vintage fabrics, as well as vintage looking fabrics. Moda’s recent release Ambleside caught my eye immediately.
