Rainbow Scrappy Star Blocks Quilt Top!


The Scrappy Star Block (click here for Jennie's tutorial) is such a fun design for using whimsical low volume fabrics for the background and happy colours for the stars!  I received two blocks from nine rainbow quilt bee participants and I decided I wanted to make a quilt with 25 blocks, so I enjoyed sewing up the remaining blocks needed to finish.

Tiny Terrific Tulips Spring Bunting

Love tulips?  Want to sew a "bouquet" that will last?

Tiny Terrific Tulip blocks in pinks, yellows and reds make for a happy Spring palette of blooms!

Following up on the release of my newest pattern, the Tiny Terrific Tulips Mini Quilt, I want to share ideas for creating other projects using the blocks from my pattern.

Tiny Terrific Tulip Blocks for Spring!

 One week away from pattern release day!

My earliest prototype for this mini quilt using my tiny terrific tulip blocks.

This winter I made a pledge to myself to focus on taking designs I've created and turn them into sewing patterns.  Writing a sewing pattern is something I've done before, but I've let excuses get in the way of consistently pursuing this.  Deciding that action is the best way to deal with those issues, I have been steadily working away on a pattern that I plan to release by April 1st.

Using small fabric scraps

Fabric scraps of even the smallest size (1" x 1") can be sewn together to become the starting point  of beautiful patchwork.

Recently, I have been adding to the collection of my low volume fabric scrap stash, thanks to using fabrics that read as white, to the quilt blocks I have been sewing. I love when those scraps accumulate!  Sewing scraps together is something that I have been enjoying for years and when I say I like to use up even the tiniest bits, I am not exaggerating.
