New fabric alert!

We just adore Sue Daley and all that she creates (she's quite fabulous in case you didn't know) so we were super excited to receive advance yardage of her new collection.

We are absolutely smitten with Abbie's Garden, a collab with Gabrielle Neil for Riley Blake Designs. This is Abbie's second collection, as she returns with her sweet pup, Snags, for a romp in the garden!



The Main Print of Abbie's Garden comes in aqua, pink, and off white and features cutesy scenes of Abbie that really show off her outfits. This print works so well as block centers. It easily fussy cuts into 4.5" squares, perfect for an 8" block!



In our blocks we paired contrasting prints with each color center. When blocks are joined it creates a secondary block that reminds us of an inverted pinwheel.



Abbie's Garden Daisy print is a perfect low volume backdrop for each colored square so the art really pops!




We made 12 blocks, finished with a pieced binding and quilted it with a simple clasp stitch, reminiscent of hand tying. Voila! Now we have a sweet little wall hanging.



If you love foundation paper piecing, this is the block for you!

Here's a free download so you can make your own Abbie Block!

Remember those paper doll cut outs you played with as a kid? Recreate the fun with fabric and these vintage style fusible applique blocks! Add your own borders to make wall hangings and quilts of any size. Imagine this made out of all your children's old clothes you've been saving! This is versatile project that allows you to customize the layout to your liking.



This is the third Cut-Outs quilt we've made and this time we featured Paper Daisies by the fabulous Sue Daley. We played around with a different arrangement, lining the top with hats and the bottom with adorable shoes and matching purses showcasing all the different prints of this fun floral line.



These applique blocks are inspired by vintage children's clothing from the 1940s-1950's. Sweet little dresses, playful rompers, bucket hats, and last but not least....saddle shoes!

Boy, we do miss saddle shoes. Add a bit of colorful, decorative stitching and these articles pop! You can even go the extra mile by sewing on buttons or adding on lace collars and trims.



This pattern is a digital download and includes 12 applique patterns.
