Cozy Cottage Calendar 2016

Sharing one of Lori Holt's pattern designs is always fun.
 I love her cottage theme and tried to keep a similar theme only with a beachy twist. Those of you who know me, know that I am slowly converting my home to my beach house.


This is my rendition of a beach house pillow...of course I only use the best fabrics made by Riley Blake Designs and Penny Rose Fabrics.
I used Elea Lutz "Milk, Sugar and Flower"...
Tasha Noel "Vintage Market"... 
RBD mini quatrefoil...Hope Chest...
Lori Holt "Modern Minis"


The calendar is filled with beautiful photos of 
Lori's cozy cottage. Click here to purchase.
Don't you love the quilt featured on the front of the calendar!!!
Those are 4" blocks...so adorable:)




I used the 8" house block and then used Lori's border and instructions to finish the pillow at 18". Using my sewing machine I quilted every 1/2" to give the pillow a quilted finish.


Choosing beachy colors was fun...mints, light and dark blues all come together for this cozy cottage beachy pillow.



Looking at this pillow takes me to my happy place.




 It makes me think happy thoughts and cozy cottage feelings.
Thank you Lori for continuing to inspire us all.


I dream of days sitting on my porch sewing my applique projects and listening to the waves hit the sand and watching the sun set...in the meantime I will keep making cute projects for my beach house.

Happy Sewing!

Jina

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.







Goldilocks Fabric Tour

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

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 …
