I get by with a little help from my friends

Bloom & Grow Quilt

Check out this quilt that Elena made! Isn’t it fantastic? It’s the Popp’n Posies Quilt Pattern by Izzy & Ivy. We used Bloom & Grow for the fabric. Throw in fantabulous turquoise Jumbo Ric Rac, 3 delightful colours o velvet ric rac and you’re got yourself one adorable quilt! (Yes, I make up words, and sometimes I pretend I’m British…espcially when I’m listening to the Beatles and so I have to spell accordingly.)  Anyway….I’m very very glad I have a friend who loves to quilt!  And she is SO good at it too!  Wouldn’t you agree?!?!?   :-)

The kit is availalbe here. It’s also available in the Just Dreamy fabrics (also by Riley Blake)

By the way, I’m considering starting every single post with lyrics from songs.  Wouldn’t it be fun to play a little game. Like you had to guess the artist? But it couldn’t be super easy like the Beatles and Google would probably ruin the game. I’d have to work hard to be sneaky.  Hmmm….maybe next time because

I’m very close to wrapping up the Quilt Market recap. (Until next year!) I wanted to show you some wonderful new patterns that will be in the shop. And the last quilt market post, but certainly not least, will be What’s Coming AND  super fab giveaways. You’ll want to check back for that. I promise!

First up – Pink Fig! We’re a fan of Pink Fig patterns. Chelsea’s patterns are designed to make you fall in love with sewing!

And how can you not fall in love with the Julie Top. Or the Nie Nie skirt?

And of course, there are the ever so fabulous ModKid patterns. Patty has a sense of not only what looks fashionable (does saying that make me sound old?) but also what kids will actually wear!

The wonderful Kyoko

And I’m happy to have added patterns from Sweetwater to my site.   (Just tonight!)

I currently only have one of each….but I’ve ordered more. I’m not sure exactly when they’ll arrive – it might not be until the fabric is released. *sigh* I’m loving them all.  And I’m loving the prices too!!!!

There is another new pattern company that I fell in love with. Izzy & Ivy Designs. This was their first time at market – and let me tell you, these ladies have been busy!

When their patterns arrive, I’ll be sure to let you know!!!

This weekend I’ll be sewing some patterns for my boys from Hot Scott. Another new company – but all BOY patterns! I should have them in store before too long.

BOYS BOYS BOYS!

Whew – I think that is all I’ll go over for now. There are other patterns on the way (from the likes of Sandi Henderson, Paula Prass, Art Gallery, etc.) – but I feel like I’ve taken too much time as it is.     :-)   

 

Most of the patterns are available right now.  So run (I mean click) over to the shop and check them all out….and buy a few.     ;-)
