Now that winter is finally behind us we can start thinking about everything spring. And with spring comes spring cleaning. If you find yourself going through all your sewing and quilting stuff and either get rid of some stuff or find that you don't have as much as you thought you did then you are in luck. We are in full spring mode at the shop now. We have lots of pretty spring fabrics that range any where from bright spring colors to pretty floral patterns to cute little bugs. So when the inspiration hits you come browse through the new spring fabrics and you might just find a new project to do! Or you might find that perfect fabric you've been looking for to finish that project.

 

 

 

 



Your next project?!

While looking at this beautiful fabric, Ruth (my grandma) came up with an idea on how to use up this fabric. She decided to make a jelly roll 1600 race out of it! she cut 2 1/2 wide strips and got to sewing. Since the fabric has such a beautiful pattern to it, it looks beautiful just by itself. This is something that's perfect for just hanging up in any room and your house. It will brighten up any room you chose to put in it and be a great thing to decorate with. This is something that's easy and quick and can bring so much to a room. I definitely recommend making this one!

The Famous Fold N Stitch Wreath

clock February 27, 2016 05:34 by author Ruth

Considering it's all anyone has been talking about lately you've probably heard about the Fold N Stitch Wreath. People are already coming up with their own versions and spins on the pattern and they are beautiful! Some people are figuring out how to make them look like 3-D flowers and some are playing around with different colors to really make it pop. With this pattern there are so many different things you can do with it, the possibilities are endless. And the best part about it is that you can make yours completely unique and no one else will have one like it. You can choose to hang it on your front door or make it the center of attention on your dining room table.

The Peeps

clock February 20, 2016 04:26 by author Ruth

As I had mentioned in a blog post a couple weeks ago I am currently working on a project for spring. It is the Blossom in Spring seasonal skinnies featuring the peeps. This project has taught me a lot so far. I first learned how to use fusible web to make the shape of the peeps. The fusible was easy and I thought it was fun. I also learned that you can glue buttons on instead of sewing them on which was nice. But so far the hardest part has been the blanket stitch I have to sew around each of the peeps. I've never done a blanket stitch so this was my fist time using it. And let me tell you it was a struggle! Just when I thought I had the hang of it I would reach a little corner and then all hope was lost.

I have not finished it yet, since I have to take lots of breaks just so I don't go crazy. But despite all the trouble with the blanket stitch I have thoroughly enjoyed this project. I've learned lots of new things and gained lots of new skills. I can't wait to see it finished and can't wait to share the finished product with you all.

Bugs!

clock February 13, 2016 07:29 by author Ruth

With spring just around the corner we have all been dying to start a project that goes with spring. And to enhance that excitement we recently just got a bunch of super cute bug fabrics in. These fabrics would be perfect for a small quilt for the little ones you know or to make a cute little bag for them! We have a pattern for a drawstring bag that is perfect for little kids to carry whatever they want. Or you could make a smaller little bag that could hold their legos, toy cars, or barbie clothes! After you see how cute the bag you made is then you will want to make one for yourself!

 

This is the pouch that would be

perfect for the little ones to

carry their toys in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Peeps

Since spring is right around the corner I decided to work on something for the coming spring season. I used the Blossom in Spring seasonal skinnies pattern. The pattern comes with patterns for three different kinds of wall hangings, a bird house, a vase of tulips, and the one I chose, the peeps. I choose lots of bright fabrics to make the little peeps themselves. I also got to learn how to use fusible for the first time. This has been a fun project for me and it has been helping me get into the Easter spirit. I'm very excited to get it finished and see it hung up in the store. 

 

 

 

 

Meet the Peeps

 

 

This is how I plan to lay them out

 This was the first quilt I ever made. I've come a long way.
