Knock on Wood Blog Tour


Today is my turn on the blog tour for Deena Rutter's 
new fabric collection called "Knock on Wood."
The inspiration for this modern fabric collection 
was Deena's teenage boys.
I was super excited when Deena asked me 
to show these boy prints in a feminine way.


It was so hard to decide which prints to use. 
I chose 3 prints. 
The cream plus sign, the blue dot and the gray stripe.
Then I chose Billie's Best Dress Pattern


I love the low volume prints with the pop of blue.
The blue is mixed with a pinch of teal and a pinch of gray.
It has that deep dark ocean blue color that is just yummy:)


You can find the whole collection of fabrics 
here on Riley Blake Designs website.
Ask your local quilt shop if they carry "Knock on Wood" 
and they can show you the whole collection.

Knock on Wood by color Riley Blake

I love Amy from diaryofaquilter photo of the whole collection.
It gives a great feel for the colors and prints in this 
modern fabric collection.


My precious granddaughter, Nahla, 
loves to model!
She has the perfect moves 
and the looks on her face are priceless.


Isn't she so adorable!


The designs on these fabrics have a hand drawn look and feel.
They are small in scale and very easy to work with.


I added one more layer of underskirt 
to the Billie's Best Dress pattern so I could show off 
the cute stripe in this Knock on Wood collection.
The stripes are uneven and crooked, 
which give this design it's modern flare.


Up close you can see the funky, uneven plus sign design. 
It's my favorite piece in this collection.


This pattern has no buttons or zippers. 
It has a tie in the back. Super easy!






I enjoyed sharing my love of sewing and fabric!!!

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

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
