Nancy Zieman Hobo Tote Bag



I had a lot of fun deciding what fabrics to use and learning to read Nancy's simple instructions and diagrams. Nancy provided the pattern and clover supplies to make this Hobo Tote Bag look like it was made at a factory instead of on my home machine. 


Her templates can be used over and over again.

Of course, I used Riley Blake Designs fabrics and I chose Geekly Chic. These fabrics are a fun, unique collection of Geekly Chic prints with bright bold colors and patterns.



One of my favorite tools to use is the bias tape maker by Clover. I love doing vines for needle turn applique when I'm quilting and it worked just fine making the bias strips I needed for the front of the bag, handles and curves of the bag.


I loved how professional the bag turned out by using the Sew Lazy Interfacing that was provided by Lazy Girls Designs.Their product stood the test of being turned in and out and around about as I was sewing the outside and lining together.


Love, Love, Love all the pockets! This is a great bag for traveling because there is plenty of space and pockets to hold all your nick nacks.

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.







Quilt Petite Blog Hop

I am super excited to share what I have made from  Sedef's new book called  "Quilt Petite"  published by Tuva Publishing.

This book is filled with charming, whimsical and quaint projects that are perfect for homemade gifts or for decorating your home. *** Sedef has added details of care and love to each page of  "Quilt Petite"

I used "On Trend" fabric designed by Jen Allyson  for Riley Blake Designs.

I chose to make the Hexie Doll Quilt on page 35. The first thing I needed to do was prepare the  (39) 1 1/2" hexies for paper piecing.

I had fun deciding which prints to fussy cut for the hexies.

Sedef has you hand-quilt around each hexie... which gives this project the charming handmade touch.

I used Shari's Binding Babies to keep my binding organized and cute while I finished my hand sewing.  You can find more information about these here. I named my cute babies Thelma and Louise.

I LOVE how this Hexie Doll Quiltturned out!!!  I

Goldilocks Fabric Tour
Jill Howarth has designed a darling fabric line  based around the beloved storybook of  Goldilocks and the three bears.  Her eye for detail and color choices  make this line so sweet.

Jill designs for Riley Blake Designs and  you can find her whole collection  of adorable prints here...

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te
