This is our latest Quilt design, Rainy Day. I just love it! I am going to try to steal it for myself to hang on the wall in my daughters room. It is mostly applique, with only pieced borders to add a little scrappy fun. The finished quilt is 48″ X 60″, perfect for a little ones bed or to hang as I want to do. We used the Apliquick tools and machine applique for this quilt, check out our tutorial if you would like to give them a try. Remember April showers bring May flowers!
This is my Picket Fences quilt. I made it years ago and its one of my very favorite quilts. It is usually on my couch or my son drags it into his bed, or I do, its the perfect throw size for cuddling up in. In my family it has been well loved and washed a million times and just seems to get better and better. I have been asked for the pattern a lot lately because of pics I had posted on my Instagram, so I decided to share it as a Free Pattern. It is great for using up lots of scraps and I really think you could make it with the background in any color. Click the link below for the pattern and make one for you family to love.
This is one of my very favorite quilts that I have ever made and just happens to be one of the easiest and quickest to finish. I even did the machine quilting myself on my regular Pfaff machine. It was featured years ago in the Better Homes & Gardens magazine Quilts and More but since it is now retired from that, I have decided to add it to our Free patterns. It is a great go to quilt when you have a beautiful collection of fabrics that hold their own and you don’t want to chop them up to much. Or if you just want to showcase some favorite prints together. This quilt is a combo of designs I loved from 3 of my favorite fabric companies, Adornit, Riley Blake & Alexander Henry. I hope you enjoy the pattern and make one or a few. I’m planning on starting one with the Everyday Eden Fabrics combined with some other faves from my stash. We also have a tutorial to help with achieving perfect points on your triangles.

This is Barbara or Babs for short, isn’t she adorable!? She is inspired by our friend Sascha’s tiny BFF Barbara. We received a new fabulous cotton canvas fabric from Alexander Henry and thought, wouldn’t this make a great stuffie!? And than we thought, we HAVE to make Barbara! So here she is and we are sharing the pattern for FREE! She is fairly simple to make, you just need to know some basic sewing skills. The pattern can be downloaded in a PDF through the link below. Click this link right here if you would like to purchase the adorable fabric we used, we think it really makes her extra amazing! We added the ability to purchase 2/3 of a yard, which is the exact amount you need to make babs, or you can order in 1/2 yard quantities like usual.
Here is the pattern, enjoy!
Barbara is about 23″ long and 12″ high when finished.
This scarf is a favorite of mine to make for myself and makes a wonderful holiday gift. The best part is it is soooo simple, you can whip out a whole batch of them in no time at all! It can be made with any fabric, but I think it looks best in classic wool fabrics. Our pattern assumes that your fabric is about 60″ wide, so you will just need to piece it, if you want to use something that is 45″ wide. Besides your fabric, you will need basic sewing skills, a sewing machine & thread to match.
We just received a couple of fantastic wool suiting fabrics that are just perfect for this, they are listed by 1/3 yard increments, so that you can easily order to make this scarf as you need 1/3 yard of a 58″ -60″ wide fabric to make each one. Click Here to if you would like to order some from us.

Enjoy! I hope you are making a little bit of your Holidays “Homemade”.
