Meow Cottons Blog Tour

Today I have the most MEOWvelous new prints to show you! Yep. I’m going there. I’m going to cram as many cat puns into this post as I can. When Riley Blake approached me about sewing up something using Meow Cottons from Marcia Cornell for My Mind’s Eye, I had a loose idea of using…

Stella in Peppermint Rose by Verna Mosquera

Stella. What can I say? I love this pattern. She’s got that boutique look that sets her apart from a lot of peasant patterns out there. While she packs a powerful, princessy punch, she is a labor of love, and sometimes you just don’t have time for all of those stripwork pieces and all of those ruffles. Can I get an AMEN?!?

Summer Lovin’ Izzy & Ivy Style

For Quilt Market this year, I had a chance to sew for a new-to-me fabric designer. Susan Emory of Swirly Girl Designs creates for Michael Miller Fabrics, and her latest line, Summer Lovin’, has some of the cutest prints! I got a chance to play with it and I thought I’d share my creations with you! It’s shipping now, so find your favorite retailer that sells Michael Miller and check it out!

Summer Pattern Bundle

Earlier this spring I won an amazing bundle of fabric from Art Gallery! You all ¬†know by now that I love all things AGF, so I was over the moon to find out that I was receiving a half yard bundle, plus a yard each of canvas and voile, from Sew Caroline’s newest line, Chalk…

Celebrating Easter in Forest Floor

I’ve always made my daughter something for holidays, but it’s been a really long time since I’ve been able to manage to have all three in coordinating outfits. In fact, it was three years ago. I don’t mean to overlook the boys, but it just happens. Look how little! They were 5, 8 months, and…

Hello…It’s Me

Yes. I went there. And even if you’re ready to rip your ears off because you’re over Adele, stay with me! I’m here today to talk about one of the newest lines to hit Ink & Arrow Fabrics: Talk to Me! I know most of you remember these old rotary phones. And the long cords…

Playing with Reverse Applique and Alison Glass Fabrics

This past October, I had the exciting privilege to attend the International Quilt Market in Houston, Texas. 2 full days of browsing new fabrics and products, as well as getting to meet internet friends, both old and new. I got to meet some great fabric designers and see what gorgeous things could be made with their fabrics.

Livin’ the City Life

While I have always been a girl from the ‘burbs, I have always love the allure of the city. Tall, gorgeous buildings, both old and new, interesting sights and sounds, taking in the interesting surroundings. I grew up near St. Louis, and while there was a lot to do in the city, we didn’t get…

Fat Quarter Fashion

A few months back I commented on a post on Free Spirit Fabric’s Facebook page, and it was tied to a giveaway. Lo and behold, I won! A little time passed and a fabulous fat quarter set of Dena Designs’ latest line, Haute Girls, showed up at my house.

Join me and one of my favorite Izzy & Ivy Patterns, some gorgeous Riley Blake fabric, and my in-house cutie as we show you our Christmas dress for 2014!
