Using traditional quilt blocks as the foundation of these utilitarian items makes them both lovely and timeless. This free pattern will show you all you…

Celebration Table Runner

   In our family, when one of the children has a birthday we celebrate them in one way by allowing them to pick out a few of their favorite treats and snacks that we put on display and allow them to eat throughout their special day.(of course they are expected to share with their siblings too!)  However, once the presents were opened, I felt like the jars of treats looked lonely on the table by themselves, so I decided to…

Sewing Machine Mini Quilt

The fabric for this project was provided to me by Riley Blake Designs. The project and opinions are my own. You probably don’t know this, but I have been pulled out of depression twice in the last two years by sewing. Through being creative, putting things together in a unique fun way, and taking time to do something just for me, I have found my happiness any joy renewed. So creating, and specifically sewing, have a very special place in…

On Trend Valentines Mini Quilt- Free tutorial and pattern

I have a spot on my gallery wall that has just been begging for a mini quilt.  I thought I would change them out seasonally so I started with this one.  Turns out it looks WAY better in my living room, and not the family room like I thought, so there aren’t any pictures of it in the gallery wall, but you still get a free tutorial out of the deal, so I think we’re good. 😉 Plus, now I…

Bloom Sew Along Mini Valentine’s Day Quilt

I have been loving the sewing going on over at the Riley Blake Design’s blog and Lori Holt’s blog as they host a sew along using Lori’s new fabric Calico Days and her Sew Simple Shapes.  I was invited to participate in sewing a block and I decided on week three’s darling flowers. I used fabrics from Doodlebug’s Lovebugs collection and I just love them.  I didn’t want to make just a block, so I decided to turn it into…

Antique Ribbon Table Runner Pattern Review

I have had a few “pinch-me” moments since I’ve started blogging, and one came recently when I was invited to review a pattern for The Fat Quarter Shop.  I was given a credit to the shop and a copy of the pattern in exchange for my review, the opinions however are my own.  The pattern is called Antique Ribbon Table Runner.  It’s a really fun pattern and it’s made really simply by using a paper foundation. I decided to make…

Scalloped border Doll Quilt

This post originally appeared as a guest post for The Ribbon Retreat.  I was provided the materials but the project and opinions are my own. I think doll quilts are so fun to make.  They are a small canvas where you can try out new techniques or designs without investing a ton of time. And who doesn’t have some teddy bears who could use a lovely place to have a tea party? This scalloped border adds just a bit of…
