Bella Skill Builder - Kaleidoscope

Hello and thanks for stopping by.
I am excited to be sewing along with the Fat Quarter Shop for the Bella Skill Builder.

Fat Quarter Shop is hosting a sew along complete with free patterns and instructions to make a beautiful sampler quilt!

I love a good sampler quilt and am excited to be a part of this one.

The first month consists of two kaleidoscope blocks both measuring 12 1/2".

I chose a "Pink Lemonade" Palette consisting of summery yellows, coral pinks and red 

Fat Quarter shop is sharing the free blocks on their blog.
Patterns will be available from February 2017 to November 2017.

You can also buy a kit complete with fabrics and all the patterns in advance [HERE]

Happy Sewing!


Playing with Kaleidoscopes

Happy Friday.
Starting on the first of February, I will be joining a sew along.
I can't wait to share a new block with you each month until November.
It is a perfect skill builder and there will be a finished quilt at the end.

In preparation for the sew along, I have been playing with fabric combos for Kaleidoscope blocks.  I love making these!

I chose an aqua and blue palette with a little red thrown in, and some fun Cotton and Steel Prints that are perfect for fussy cutting.
Hope to see you on February 1st!

Happy Sewing



Purr-fect Patchwork Purse

Well Hello there!!!

Embarrassingly it has been over a month since I was last here!  Life has been crazy and I have missed sharing my projects with you.  I have been sewing some new projects and will have lots to share in February!

I designed the Diamond Patchwork Purse for Stitch Magazine which is sadly no longer in print.

Creative Machine embroidery magazine is sharing a version of the purse with adorable Kitty Embroideries in the patchwork squares.

If you don't do embroidery, it would be an adorable project with Fussy Cut squares.
You can find a tutorial for fussy cutting on the blog [HERE]

You can find the pattern for free [HERE] until February 28th!

I love this version too.  It is made with "Pie Making Day" fabric from RJR fabrics. 

See you Soon!

Happy Sewing
