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.

I hope you enjoy all the fabulous quilts.

Love the red and yellow.



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.







Dolly Book Tour

It is such an honor to be included with Elea Lutz ***DOLLY BOOK TOUR*** I have worked with Elea for many years and she always continues to inspire me with her fresh approach to color and design. She is super talented and tops it off with her sweetness that endears her to everyone. Elea's new book called Dolly has beautiful photography that keeps you looking through the pages over and over again.
After looking at all the lovely dolly themed projects I finally decided to make this cute Doll Dress Wall Hanging.

I used Little Dolly from Elea's recent fabric range. The colors and little mini designs are perfect for all the projects in her new book called DOLLY.

 One block just wasn't enough...ha ha  I started thinking about the cute grand baby daughter  that will be coming in December.

I thought...how cute would it be to do 4 Doll Dresses...

and so I kept sewing and sewing...

and sewing...I loved every minute of  picking out each dress fabric...

I was able to fussy cut the little flowers fr…

Spelling Bee Sew Along

I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along byLori HoltofBee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!

 I used "Yes Please" fabric line by  My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. The color palette is black and off white with a touch  of rose gold. The simplicity of the colors lends itself to sophistication.

I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making.  Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used. 

My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to ma…
