I love tiny quilts! Especially small ones with lots of teensy details like 1″ patches and adorable flowers. So when I saw this quilt at market this year, I knew it was for me. I have only started a few blocks but I am having a ball. When I get a little more finished I will share a photo with you. It is called Lisa’s Flower Garden and is by Primitive Gatherings. I have not started any of the floral blocks yet, but I am thinking of using hand dyed wools. The whole quilt is 34″ X 42″! One of my very favorite quilts of all time is the one shown below from the Shelburne Museum Collection. Lisa’s quilt reminds me a little of it. Love it!!!! What do you think?
What is not to love about these mod dots? They are called Downtown Dots from our favorite fabric company Alexander Henry. They are a perfect basic with a lot of pop. I purchased a ton of both of these and I know they will show up in a lot of quilts in the future. The top one may also need to become another crib sheet, I am learning that you need a lot of them!
Back by popular demand!!! We sold tons and tons of these at shop hop, and so we decided to make up more kits. Stop by the shop or you can order them online here: Piper’s Girls Etsy Shop, just specify which fabrics you would like, all 4 shown are available. These bibs are so fun and fabulous and take not time at all to make! Love them!
We are busy making up new and fabulous fall displays! There are tons of baby and children’s items, an amazing Christmas Advent Calendar and so much more! The fall class schedule will be out the end of next week, but some of the favorite basic classes are already available for sign ups.
Follow this link for class times Interim Class Schedule ,then call the shop to sign up!
I cannot believe it is August!!! This summer has been a blur!
I am so in love with this little guy, I am saving my pennies to buy it for Ronan(okay it is for me, but maybe he can borrow it every once in a while). If I was making soft toys, these would be tho ones I would aspire to.I love everything in Cotton Monster’s shop. They are all a little creepy, but oh so fabulous! I am doing my best to buy as many baby things from Etsy as I can, to support all of the people making great stuff by hand. I hop you are all doing the same. I would rather Ronan have a little less, but all great toys!
I am so excited to finally get these Farm Fresh fabrics in the shop, they were worth the wait! I would love to make a little girls quilt with them, something very simple and vintage. I am glad there are so many classic polka dots and checks in the collection. So sweet!!
This is my sewing table, with only a small portion of my neglected sewing projects. I am struggling with keeping up with all of my jobs such as sewing, blogging and such while performing my new job as a mom. I was feeling a little down on myself today and thinking about how I am not getting anything done. Than I realized how lucky I am to be a bit behind. I am getting to spend tons of time with the most precious new friend I could have imagined. So actually, I am getting a lot of very important items done, just different than what I was accomplishing before. With that said, I am still missing my projects terribly. I am determined to get back on track right away. There are some really cute new fabrics at the shop that I am dying to cut into, so you will be seeing much more of me and what is going on at Pipers right away!
