I had an absolute blast making this quilt for my son Ronan! Picking and collecting fabrics that I knew he would love was so much fun. He loves to pick out the animals, veggies, cars and especially the potty I added to the quilt. I love that this quilt is educational, but I also am thrilled with the simple modern aesthetic, and it matches his room perfectly. I used Riley Blake’s “Pewter” solid as my background, but that can be easily changed to white, pink, navy, green, or whatever color will match your little one’s room, or let them pick their favorite color. You will be able to finish this quilt in no time at all and it is simple enough for any beginner to make it. Plus we are giving you the pattern for free!!

The link below will send you to our online tutorial on the Holiday Doves we did as a demo in our shop last week. If you would like a fun project for this weekend, that the kids can help with, these adorable Doves are perfect! There are no special skills required and you can finish them very quickly, we made 12 in about an hour. Use them in your holiday decor, lined up on a shelf, as place card holders, as ornaments on your tree, or a million other ways. Plus the holly ornament on their neck can easily be removed and you can add hearts, flowers like we did or a million other little decorations in order to use them for different holidays throughout the year!

Love & Patchwork is one of my very favorite finds as of late! It is from the same group that does Mollie Makes, and I have loved every square inch of the first 2 issues that I got my hands on. It is out of the U.K. but you can subscribe, or pick it up around town, or even get it on your e-reader, plus hopefully we will be carrying it soon. The cover above is issue 3, the latest issue, that to my surprise our Animal Alphabet series is featured in as a new and wonderful find! So exciting!! P.S., I totally need to make that buttons quilt!

I am currently having too much fun with Bee In My Bonnet’s Hexie Half Ruler! I have been making this Hexie Posie quilt and a larger honeycomb style baby quilt at the same time.After years of not having one, have finally put some batting up on my wall for a make shift design board. What a difference! Now I wish I could cover one entire wall in it! Someday, in my dream sewing room. So, what are you working on?
Just a little peek at the next quilt in our Animal Alphabet series. And, yes, a monster is an Animal. This quilt is just plain fun! We are working on the patterns and kits, and we still have to quilt and bind before our sample is finished. So it will be about a week until we can share with you a finished pic, and be able to sell patterns and such. What do you think ?
P.S. I broke my camera lens (sad face), so I had to take pics with my phone and they are not up to snuff in my opinion, so please imagine them a little more polished.
