Time Flies...

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted something.  It's not for lack of inspiration, but mainly due to colds and teething.  My Etsy shop is so low on inventory, I knew I really need to add something, so I quick whipped up this fun little girl quilt.

Warning:  If you're looking for new quilt patterns or complicated piecing, don't read any farther.  This one is made of more squares.

(and it's perched on my new Ikea Ektorp chair!)

I started out with this fat quarter of Wildwood by Erin McMorris.  It came free with my last fabric purchase, because they were late with their shipping.  I just loved the bright pink, lime green, and tangerine colors, so I added some more prints, as well as some solid white and lime green.

Of course I had to add some of my favorite Heather Ross dogs!

It's so satisfying to pull a big one yard chunk from the bottom of your stash and revive it as the perfect quilt back.

I want to point out another new favorite fabric, actually two of them.  See the bright green with white dandelions?  A wonderful print, and lovely shade!  I just went and ordered another yard, because I know it's going to be my go-to lime green from now on.  The other favorite is the Nicey Jane Big Roses on cream right above it.  I'm surprised at myself that I like this one, because big prints like this aren't as versatile.  But there's something about those fat, bright roses that make me want to inhale them!  

And now for a sneak peak at the boy quilt that I'm working on right now...


  1. Very lovely quilts and even yummier fabric!!

  2. Oh, so cute. Those colors are great together!

  3. Oooh, I want to see the boy quilt. I haven't bought any Castle Peeps for myself, but if I was making baby quilts - oh yes!

  4. Nice work!! I love the little girl quilt, and so easy - that's the best kind! Can't wait to see the finished Castle Peeps quilt!

  5. So cute! And it is funny you mentioned your new IKEA chair....I just got the exact same one! It is sitting in my garage, waiting to be put together. It looks cozy!

  6. I Love this style and find it refreshing.
    The chair is cool too.
