Finished Birchen quilt top!


My finished quilt! The Birchen Quilt from Fat Quarter Shop. (links below for free quilt pattern, and video tutorial) and Recollections fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics! Love!



A few progress shots. Thank goodness for "Triangles on a Roll" it made all these half square triangles so much easier to make!



Fat Quarter Shop has the free pattern for you HERE

And the super helpful YOUTUBE video tutorial 

I chose to go with something a bit out of my comfort zone. More bold colors, and more modern prints. Recollections from Art Gallery. I LOVE Art Gallery Fabrics, so very soft! And so many of my new favorite fabric lines are from Art Gallery. 



I am so happy with this quilt! I love the fabrics and colors. I can't wait to quilt it. Thank you Fat Quarter Shop and Art Gallery Fabrics. 


Here is the Fat Quarter Shop video tutorial for the free Birchen quilt pattern




Also, a link to the Birchen quilt kit from Fat Quarter Shop with the Hello, Bear line from Bonnie Christine. Love!

Valentine's Goodness

Happy Valentine's Day friends!!  Hope you're planning to enjoy your weekend in one way or another.  My mommy is in town and so we will be enjoying the time with her (and new baby brother!)


I made this KISS pillow from scraps a couple years ago.  Right now it's beside my Be Mine Quilt in my front room. (Ignore the ribbon hanging out on the ground!)


I realized it matches perfectly with my Briar Rose Hexi Quilt, which happens to be the favorite quilt in my house.  Love me a pile of pinks and prettiness! :)


Also wanted to share this bundle I got with you.  Isn't it the sweetest?!  For Lakehouse by Pam Kitty.  The sweet aqua is a 1/2 yard cut and everything else is fat eighths.  I can't help myself, I must make Lucy something from this!! I'm thinking a tunic or dress.  Yay! :)

Enjoy your weekend!!
Happy Valentine's!

Seas the Day Quilt!

 Seas the Day!
(Hang around there's a giveaway at the end!)

I loved getting to try out this super cute pattern from Fat Quarter Shop!


It uses a special pre-cut, a Jolly Bar (5" x 10") and a charm pack. I had this baby quilt top together in an evening easy peasy.  I used Day Sail from Moda and an Aqua Bella Solids charm pack.  I took at the too girly prints so I can use it for my little man :)



Pattern is free with a YouTube tutorial, kits are available at Fat Quarter Shop.
Thank to Kimberly and the team, always creating fun and easy patterns!




$25 Gift Certificate from Fat Quarter Shop!

Hooray!  This could get you started on a Jolly Bar project of your own!

How about you leave a comment and answer just a simple question:

What is your #1 WIP or project for 2015?

Mine would have to be finishing my memory quilt of my dad.  I'm a little less than halfway there. I do enjoy working on each block.  It can be really hard and sad but I will finish it because I want to snuggle in it.

WINNER ANNOUNCED NEXT TUESDAY, 2/17.
