Quilt Market Recap 2014

Hi there! I have a fun post today, filled with pictures from Quilt Market! Jodie and I had a lot of fun seeing all the beautiful booths and meeting lots of quilty and fabric friends! 

We got into Houston on Friday night.  We missed Sample Spree, because we had no idea that you needed a ticket to get in! So now we know for next year! :)  

We stayed all day Saturday, and went back for a few appointments on Sunday morning, and then left back for Dallas.  So it was a short trip, but we had so much fun! 



Jodie and Lindsey ready to go to Market!

Orange Peel Pillow Mini Tutorial

Hi there! I am back from Market!! I will be posting about that tomorrow! So be sure to check back, and read all about it--I will have a lot lot pictures to share!

Today, I wanted to share this simple pillow with you today.  A few weeks ago, we got these lovely Cross Weave Woven fabrics in the shop.  These fabrics are beautiful.  They have such a lovely look and texture! We have five different colors, and they are all just as beautiful.  You have to see these in person to truly see how lovely they are!

We have this awesome bundle put together with all the colors we have available, so you can see each one!




This is such a quick and easy project, you can whip this pillow up in no time! I love the linen against the cross-weave.  It gives the pillow a nice texture.  The colors in this pillow are so soft and natural looking, which is perfect for an everyday pillow for your couch, or even your bed! :)


Alright, let's make this!  Here are the instructions:

Diaper and Wipes Travel Pouch {Tutorial}

Hi there! I hope you are enjoying your weekend! Today I am going to show you how to whip up this cute and functional Diaper and Wipes Pouch! 

This pouch is really simple to put together! I saw an idea like this on Pinterest, but it had a zipper top.  I decided to change this one up a bit by adding a magnetic snap. 

This pouch would be an awesome gift for a new mom, or even a mom with more than a few kids! I have three kiddos, and one of them is still in diapers.  She's at the age where I don't need to take a diaper bag with me, but I still need to carry a diaper and wipes just in case.  So this little pouch is the perfect thing to tuck into my purse, so I don't have to carry a diaper bag anymore! 



So what do ya say, let's make one!

Card Holder Wallet {Tutorial}


Hi there! I am flying to Texas tomorrow for Quilt Market! Wahoooo! I am so excited for this fun-filled weekend!  

While I am at Quilt Market, I am definitely going to take my business cards.  I was thinking, that I didn't really have anywhere to keep a bunch of them all in one place that would be convenient, and small enough to just tuck in my purse.  I figured I should remedy that immediately! :)

So I came up with this tiny Card Holder Wallet:


This card holder measures at 5" wide and 3" tall when closed.  So it's really compact and perfect to put in my already over-flowing purse!   This was so easy to put together, and I was able to literally use some scraps to whip this up.


I used some fusible fleece as my interfacing, which makes the card holder really sturdy.  To keep the wallet closed, I added a magnetic snap.  These things are the best! They are so easy to work with and are very functional!

Fabrics used in this wallet are from A Beautiful Thing by Riley Blake

So what do ya say, let's make one together!

Arabian Nights - Simple Sixteen Quilt

Hi there! I have an awesome new Quilt Kit to share with you guys today! Remember my Simple Sixteen pattern and kit I posted a few months ago?  Well, it has gotten such a great response, we have kitted it again, but we are using Art Gallery's Indelible and coordinates!


  I can't tell you how much I love these fabrics together, they are absolutely gorgeous, and just mesh so well with each other!  The deep purples paired with the teal and gray--has to be one of my favorite color combinations! Not to mention the lovely geometric prints paired with the deer prints, and florals are so lovely together!  The background fabric we decided on is a lovely cream color, that really compliments the fabrics used in the kit!  





ARABIAN NIGHTS QUILT KIT:   This quilt kit features the Indellible Collection by Art Gallery, along with other Art Gallery blenders!  Kit includes the yardage required for an easy quilt top as pictured, binding, and my Simple Sixteen Quilt Pattern!
