A little of this

I'm way behind on sharing projects, but here's a few recent happy makes:

I made this pillow as part of a birthday club. I made some similar ones a few years back. I'm thinking of making another one for my etsy shop. I love the simple patchwork and linen look.

I missed you, embroidery! I stitched this teatowel (using a Sublime Stitching pattern) up for Sara in the wonky bee swap. P.S. She's selling amazing naturally hand-dyed yarns now! Gorgeous.

I'm crazy in love with these paper-pieced treasures. I'm not sure what I will do with them, but I will be making more bits, no question. The apron is by Charise Creates and the mixing bowl is Ayumi's for Superbuzzy.

Here's to a crafty week, friends!

Field Day Geranium Dress

Alison was kind enough to send me some of her upcoming Field Day fabric and asked that I make another little Geranium dress for her booth. She also sent some Andover Chambray (the skirt fabric). This is my second time using the chambray and it is so lovely for garments. Side note: I also recently bought a cut of the Textured Solids, and I'm excited to use it!

I used Aurifil 1148, which I especially like on the heathered purple chambray.

I don't think I'll ever run out of buttons, thanks to my grandmother. I found these little yellow buttons in a box of her treasures (and I'm thankful she instilled me with a love for sewing!).

I love the little pocket and the tiny gathers, too. There are lots of great details in this dress.

I know I've said it before, but the Geranium Dress is such a great gift, and easy to stitch.

FO: Wonky Bee Traveling Quilt

I love every square inch of this quilt. And I love the wonky bee girls (Nicke, Sara, Melissa, Jessica and Amanda) that helped stitch it.

The patchwork is eclectic and improvisational. The colors are bold and happy.

THe quilting is dense and in yellow thread.

I'm not sure how I could love this more.

You can read more about this quilt here and here.
