Road Trip Blog Tour

It's time for the Road Trip Blog Tour 
with Kelly Panacci 
for Riley Blake Designs!!!


Kelly Panacci's grandson could not be any 
cuter in his owl knitted hat 
set against a camping background. 
If you would like to see more of 
Kelly's inspiration for this 
cute camping line 
please check out her website here 
to read her story! 



The colors and prints in this Road Trip Fabric 
are rich and wonderful!
Rich greens, blues and reds with a pop of aqua 
bring all the cute campers and animals to life!!!



Kelly challenged us all to come up with something 
that we would take along on a road trip.
Of course, I can't go any where without a bag.
(LOL... so far everyone on the blog tour has needed a bag)
***
I first made a bag with 2 1/2" squares 
so I could show off all the cute designs that Kelly created. 
I was able to fussy cut the small prints for each 2 1/2" square.
Each square was sewn together into 
rows of 5 across and 10 down. 
I quilted the squares 1/4" inside the 
seam on my sewing machine.
Once the squares were sewn together 
I stitched the sides then boxed the bottom.
The lining was made exactly the same. 
There is a casing at the top where the cording is threaded through.
Super easy and a great way to carry extra supplies or your lunch!


The pockets on the outside of the large bag are 1 1/2" strips sewn together to create a log cabin block. The center of the log cabin block is a 2 1/2" fussy cut square to show of the cute animals and campers in this fabric line.


I loved using the Flex-Foam Sew-In made by Pellon. 
It is lightweight and long lasting for flexibility and 
doesn't leave wrinkles in your fabric. 
It gives your bag a wonderful, finished, clean look.


It's fun to be able to see how large 
this bag is with comparison to an adult. 
It's a fabulous travel size that will 
just about carry everything 
you need for an overnight stay.


The fun tassel which hangs from the handle of the bag is made from a spool with some 1/4" binding wrapped around the spool and finished with a antique button at the front. There is a piece of fabric threaded through the middle and pieces of torn fabric tied and hanging from the bottom.


Kelly thank you so much for letting me be part of your 
Road Trip Blog Tour. 
I had so much playing with the amazing colors 
and fun whimsical designs you created. 
With the scraps I have left 
I want to make a few more cosmetic bags 
to organize inside my larger bag. 
You can never have enough bags!!!



Thank you for joining me for the Road Trip Blog Tour.
A special thanks to Kelly for inviting me to play with her
 beautiful fabric!!!
You can see more of this fabric line here 

Hopefully you feel inspired to go 
and sew something fun today!

Happy Sewing!!!

  1. So cute! My husband's family did a lot of camping in a small trailer when he was a kid. It would be fun to make things for his sisters from this fabric -- they would love it!

  2. Jina, you have outdone yourself! I love both these wonderful bags. The little one has it's own personality - all patchy and that big tote is to die for. It goes without saying, but if I make a bag as beautiful as that I will have to get some red boots too! : )

August That Alpine Quilt Group

August has come and gone.Here are the  pictures of That Alpine Quilt Group show and tell and then quilts by Konda who owns http://www.moosequilts.com/
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…
