Best Book: Quilty Fun


I knew I would love this book, before I ever saw it, because I love everything Lori does. Now that I have had time to play with Quilty Fun,, it is even better than I had envisioned. Tons of great information, tips, patterns and loads of Lori’s fabulousness all wrapped up in a spiral bound (yes, spiral bound!) book. Every quilt in here is my favorite and the best part is , its written in a way that makes it easy for you to make your own layout  with all of the designs. If you don’t already have a copy, you can order one from us through this link here: Quilty Fun

P.S. Lori has started a Sew Along using this quilt that begins today. I picked my fabrics this morning and am definitely joining in, you should too!

Free Pattern: Daisy Baby

If I have a little girl someday, I will give her this quilt. I love the simplicity of the design and the soft colors. I made this quilt using the Daisy Cottage collection of fabrics, but it could be made with anything that you love. These fabrics are very girly, but you can change the fabrics to work wonderfully for a boy. This is a great go- to baby quilt for all of those baby showers you will be attending this spring. We are giving you the pattern, it is easy and fast and very beginner friendly. Just follow the link below for the instructions. This quilt is designed to work with 2 sets of 5″ charm squares plus a complimentary fabric. We are selling kits with exactly the fabrics we used, they include everything for the quilt top, pre-cut pink bias binding and the backing fabric, click here to order one. Enjoy!
