Zippitt Car Seat Canopy

My daughter Tahmor sent me these cute photos of this darling car seat carrier I made for my new grandbaby girl, Nahla. Riley Blake Designs  carries this pattern by Elizabeth Wyatt called the Zippitt Car Seat Canopy.



You can see the cute ruffle from the top view here that goes along the front of the carrier.


It has a zipper up the front. I put a cute ribbon on the zipper pull to make it easier for opening and closing.


You can see the whole view of the car seat cover. It doesn't touch the ground so it won't get dirty. It covers the whole car seat nicely with a few embellishments of ruffles and fabric trim.


It opens in the front with a zipper and you can see the lining is black and cream. I used the fabric line designed by Riley Blake Designs called Lost and Found. The black and white damask is sparkle cotton. It has a little shimmer to the damask.


 Another view from the top. I like the convenience of being able to have the front open or closed. The zipper was a great idea.


This shows the tabs for holding toys.


I would highly recommend this pattern. I loved making it. I especially love the look and function of the design. Ask your local store if they carry Elizabeth Wyatts pattern called the Zippitt Car Seat Canopy. If they don't then recommend they purchase it from Riley Blake Designs.

Happy Sewing!

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.






I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.








This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.







Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.



Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

In The Meadow Blog Tour

I’m so excited to be playing with Shari Butler’s 
new fabric line called
In The Meadow for Sweet Bee Designs!!!

These fabrics are so fresh and happy.  The colors are bright and inspire sewing fun for days on end...
I decided to make this fun quilt using 4 blocks  measuring 12 1/2" unfinished.

I cut 2 1/2" strips and then cut those  into 2 1/2" squares... the block center is 16 squares sewn  together to create a 16-patch.

The outside edge that creates the star points are made up of  16 half square triangles and 4 squares for the corners... all measure 2 1/2" square unfinished. 
          The border uses the left over 2 1/2"squares.


I love putting black and white with bright colors.  It pops the colors and makes everything grounded and cohesive.
The sashing is where I added the 1 1/2" black squares.  Where the corners meet it creates a black and white nine-patch.
