What do you think? I am sure any little one will be so excited to lose their first tooth and put in into this little guys mouth! This easy to make pillow will look darling on the bed the whole year long, plus provide a lot of fun when the tooth fairy pays a visit. I am totally stealing this for little Ronan’s bed! We are selling kits through our website through the link here: Monster Tooth Fairy Pillow Kit
Yay! W is for Whale is finally in the shop and the kits are all done. Phew! This guy gave us a few bumps along the way, but now that he is here, we are in love! This darling quilt is meant to be a baby quilt, but it also fits wonderfully on a toddler bed. It is applique, but it is simple applique. We think he is simply stunning! What do you think?
He is finally hanging in the shop and I want to rip him down and take him home already! I just love this new A is for Alligator quilt! It is also the first quilt that my little boy Ronan has become obsessed with as well, which I love even more. The applique is super simple, so if you are a novice this is a great quilt to start with. We used our machine applique method with the edges turned under which is a regular class at the shop. So, what do you think?
This little Alligator is heading out of the studio today and off to be quilted. This is only a tiny little peek, but what do you think? We have been busy working on designing a whole series of quilt patterns for children and A is for Alligator is the first one to be released. We are loving all of them and can’t wait to share them with you! This pattern and the kits will be available by the end of next week, so stay tuned!
Without fail every time I clean my sewing room, I find something fabulous that was totally lost & forgotten. This time it was this Midnight in the garden quilt I made YEARS ago. It is made with a cotton background and wool applique, I wish I could remember the designer, but for the life of me I cannot(if you know, please comment). It is all finished except for the hand quilting. Now that I have just the perfect little man to give it to, it is just in time. I must get it finished! So tonight I am going to mark it with cross hatching and start stitching. I have not done much hand quilting lately, so it will be good to get back into it.
I finally finished cleaning my sewing room! I am sure it will be a mess again soon, but I LOVE working in it when it is all organized. Besides my scrap organization, I also cleaned out and organized all of my projects and patterns, fabric, everything is labeled and has a spot! Get ready to be impressed, well as impressed as you can be with a teeny room in the basement.
My cutting table has little shelves on both sides with all of my fabric folded and organized by color now.
The shelves are stuffed but looking a lot neater.
This is a walk in closet that is usually the scariest place, but everything is all organized and tidy. Even my giant work table is all folded up! Usually it is open and so full with stuff it is hard to actually use.
Even my sewing table is mostly clear and ready for action! Woo Hoo! It is amazing what a little late night energy burst can amount to, now if only I could have one of those every night, who knows what I could accomplish.
P.S. Jeanette just sent me a text (yes she can text now!, it is amazing) of another sneak peak of the Monster Quilt!
Can you believe it!!!! I am so in love!!! Can you believe she has made 2 of them that are identical so that both of her grandsons can have one, so eventually one of these fabulous quilts will be at my house. We are working on the kits , so make sure to get your name on our wait list because I am sure they will be a hot ticket! If you just want the pattern, you need the Little Monsters pattern plus an addendum pattern that we will be posting free on the blog in a few weeks. LOVE!!!!!
I am loving this quilt! I am so glad Jeanette made one for little Ronan too! This pattern is from Australian designer Anni Downs, of Hatched & Patched. It is from the book A Boy’s Story, which is on its way to Piper’s from down under. You can pre-order one now to make sure you get one! This week we are finalizing a new class schedule that will come out right after the new year. There are some fun new classes coming up, and this quilt will be one of them! Make sure your on our e-mail list!
This is the December Block for Aunt Millie’s Garden. You can start this block of the month with us at any time. Come to class if you need help with your applique’, we offer sessions the 1st Friday & Saturday of every month. We are hoping to have this quilt finished and hanging in the shop by the end of January! All of the blocks are just stunning! I cannot wait to see the whole quilt!
Another fab design from Lori! This little applique wall hanging is just lovely and inspiring. I wish I had this dreamy baby blue sewing machine! If you are too far from the shop, you can purchase the pattern from us here: Sew She Did. Love it as always, I know if it is from Bee In My Bonnet, it is right up our alley.
There is so much that is new at our shop, I will be posting and posting over the next few weeks. Don’t Look Now, is an Australian company that designed this quilt above and was one of our very favorite Quilt Market finds. We brought an order of patterns back to the shop and sold out of many of them in one day. Thank goodness I tracked these ladies down at their hotel and am going to pick up a re-order before they head back down under! The above quilt is called Animal Alphabet and am head over heels for it! Isn’t it fabulous!?
