I am so excited about this Sew Along! Today we are going to share our fabric pull and post on Instagram! 

I have had a lot of questions about the sew along so here is some more information! 

1. Question: Do I need to sign up?
Answer: You don't need to sign up! If you get my emails, you will get the patterns automatically emailed to you on the days that I post the blocks! 

2. Question: How much fabric do I need?
Answer: This is truly a scrappy project, so I would recommend diving into those overflowing scrap bins and getting all of your favorite reds, greens, and Christmas prints! I have pulled a few to show you the scale I am using for my prints.  You don't want large scale prints, for this mini quilt.  Stick with smaller/medium scale prints! 

As for yardage, I would have at least 1 1/2 yards of background fabric on hand.  I am using my favorite background fabric Bella Solids Off White by Moda.  If you want to use a low volume print, that would look cute too! I would recommend something very low volume, since we are going super scrappy on this one, I wouldn't do something that would take away from your red and green fabrics! 

Along with all of your scraps, you will need a 1/2 yard of red fabric.  Pick something that is a smaller scale print! 

3. Question: What skill level is this Sew Along?
Answer: We will be using small pieces, but everything will be traditionally pieced.  I would say a confident beginner to the advanced quilter would love this mini quilt! 

4: What if I don't have an Instagram account?
Answer: You can still participate! I will be sharing all the posts here in my emails! 

5: Do I need any special rulers or tools?
Answer:
 I love to use my 4 1/2" square Frosted Ruler by OLFA. (I have some of these in my Etsy shop if you would like one!) This is the perfect size for squaring up blocks! You will also need a marking pen.  

I think that answers all the questions! If you have on that wasn't answered, shoot me an email or message on instagram!  :) 

Remember if you are posting your pictures on instagram to use#HappyChristmasSewAlong - so I can see your fabric pulls! :)

Gingham Farmhouse Quilt



Hi there! I am so excited about this new fabric from Poppie Cotton! 

This collection is called Gingham Farmhouse and it is absolutely stunning! All the florals and ginghams in this line just make me happy! If you take a closer look, you can see little gingham bunnies in some of the prints! They are so darling! 

I created an all new pattern called Tilt-A-Whirl, for this quilt and it turned out so cute! I will be releasing the pattern soon! This fabric was perfect for this pattern, I was able to show off the prints easily.  I really love the color palette in this collection, especially the pinks! 


I will be getting this on the quilting frame soon and will share the final quilt with you, as well as a the pattern! I think Benny is excited for this quilt to be done! ;)


For more Gingham Farmhouse inspiration be sure to follow along the fabric tour!

Window Pane Quilt {Cops and Robbers}


Hi there! Today I am sharing an all new finish with you guys! This quilt is very special to me because it is for my first Great Nephew!!  When I saw this cute Cops and Robbers fabric by Shawn Wallace for Riley Blake. - I knew I had to make a quilt for the newest addition to our family! 
Window Pane Quilt Pattern 

This fabric has just the cutest motifs! You guys are going to fall in love with this line! I just keep staring at all the different prints and find something new I love about it each time! I also added in some Riley Blake basics in my quilt! 

Window Pane Quilt Pattern 

I decided to go with some stars and loops for the quilting, which I think really complimented this quilt! There are a lot of stars here an there in the prints, so I used that as my inspiration for the quilting. 

Window Pane Quilt Pattern 
I used my Widow Pane pattern for this quilt. This pattern uses two blocks, a simple framed block and a window block.  I used the tone on tone prints for the window blocks and I used the larger scale prints for the framed blocks.  I did this because I really wanted to showoff those fun motifs! 

Window Pane Quilt Pattern 
My absolute favorite print in the entire collection is the "line up" print!  Oh my gosh, it is so cute! I especially love the dog that is trying to disguise himself as a cat! lol! So so cute! 

Window Pane Quilt Pattern 
I went to my local police department and was able to have Officer Atkin take a picture with this special quilt! Thank you so much St. George Police department! :)  I love how her uniform matches the colors in the quilt!

Zipper Pouches {Lucy's Garden}

Hi there! I have some cute zipper pouches to share with you today!  When I'm not quilting, I love making zipper pouches.  They make quick projects and best of all, they make perfect gifts! 

I love how vibrant thee fabrics are! The colors are so pretty, they would look amazing in any project! 


I made three zipper pouches in three different sizes! 
 6" x 12"
8" x 12" 
10" x 12" 

If you have never made a zipper pouch, just google it! You will find lots of tutorials! 

I like to do different sizes because I use them for different things! The large size, I like to use when I go on vacation and I pack toiletries in that size.  The medium size is a great size for a makeup bag, and the small size is perfect for your phone/glasses and lip gloss! 

One tip I have for you is that it's always nice to keep lots of zippers on hand! I always have white, cream and black zippers on hand.  That way if I need a quick project for a gift, I don't have to go to the store to pick up a zipper! I used white on all of these, but you could definitely use colored zippers or even metal zippers! 

The other thing I always have on hand is my favorite lightweight interfacing -Pellon SF101.  This is my go-to interfacing when making zipper pouches! This is another thing to keep in your stash so you have everything you need to whip one of these up! 


I love how these one turned out! The small one is my favorite! I think I might have to make another one!

Layer Cake Lattice Quilt

Hi there! I am so excited about the quilt I am sharing today!  I have had my eye on this fabric for months now, and it is just so bright and happy! I love it sooo much!  It is called Flutter and Shine by Melanie Collette for Riley Blake Designs.  

Layer Cake Lattice Pattern HERE

I used my Layer Cake Lattice pattern for this quilt and it was perfect! I love how this pattern shows off every single print in a collection - which I definitely wanted to do since every print is so cute! 

Layer Cake Lattice Pattern HERE

One thing I love about this quilt is I used a pin dot basic for the background, which added an extra cuteness to the quilt!

For the backing I used a Blossom basic and it turned out sooo cute! It really shows off the extra large flowers I quilted on it! :)  For binding, I used one of the butterfly prints, but cut it on the bias.  I love how you can see little butterflies in the binding!

Starbound in Merry and Bright


Hi there! I have a fun quilt to share today! I have been waiting so long for this fabric to come out!! When I saw this line, it was love at first sight! It's called Merry and Bright by Echo Park for Riley Blake Designs, and it could not be any cuter! 


This fabric has the most lovely vintage feel to it and I wanted to showcase all of those lovely prints! So I designed my Starbound pattern specifically for this fabric.  I have made this quilt in so many different fabrics, but I think this is definitely my favorite! 
Starbound Pattern HERE
The great thing about this pattern is that you can use charm packs or a layer cake! It is a quick make, and you could definitely make this quilt in a weekend!

For the quilting I decided to do a fun snowflake pattern, and I really love how it turned out, especially against the dark green backing I used!

Nesting Stars in Winterberry

Hi there! Today it is my stop on the Winterberry blog tour!  When I first saw this fabric, it really spoke to me! I love Christmas fabric, and this line of fabric is one of my favorites of the season!  This collection by My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake is full of rich reds and greens!  I love the vintage modern vibe it has and I couldn't wait to see how it looked using my Nesting Stars pattern! 


I absolutely love how the quilt turned out! Those rich colors really stand out against the background fabric! Every single block is different, which is what I love about this quilt! 
Nesting Stars Pattern HERE
For the quilting, I used a pretty Christmas Pattern called, Holiday Garland.  It is very elegant and I thought really complimented the quilt nicely.  I also went with one of the plaids in the collection for the backing, which just makes me happy! The plaids in this line are amazing!! It's like wrapping paper on the back! ;)


I am really pleased with how the quilt came out and I can't wait to display it all winter long! When I say all winter, I mean like from October to February! ;)  I just love it that much!
