Itsy Bitsy... Pieces

Posted on June 16, 2013 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

I'm not known for small piecing, I'm more of an instant gratification type of girl.  But I just couldn't resist busting open one of these Boho candies

Aren't they adorable?  We have a whole assortment of mini charms, more and more lines are coming out with them.  If you haven't had the opportunity to work with them, they sure are fun!  42 squares in a pack (just like a charm pack), but these little guys are only 2.5" x 2.5".  Check out the mini charms we have available, it's hard to choose between them all!

Those little pieced squares are only 2" x 2", maybe not the smallest blocks out there but they sure are cute!  I'm only about half way done...

Make sure to check back to see how this little mystery quilt turns out!  I'm hoping to be done with the top this week if all goes according to plan.

Happy Go Luck in the Store

Posted on June 03, 2013 by Jenn Thurston | 0 comments

Check out Bonnie and Camille's newest line Happy Go Lucky.  Every line they come out with I think "this is my favorite one", then they out do themselves on the next line!  This one is exceptionally nice because they added a navy to make a pop of color.  I made a sample quilt for our store using two charm packs and some white fabric.  The quilt pattern can be found in the book Fresh Fabric Treats, very easy and fun to make.  


So fun in fact, that I used the few charm squares I had remaining from the quilt to make a pillow.  For the pillow cover I cut the charms into 2.5" squares and used the same wonky star technique.  Like I said really fun to make, I'm sure this is not the last wonky start object you'll see from me!



The colors in this line are so stunning, yellow, navy and of course red and aqua.



You really must check it out soon, with a line this delicious it will certainly be gone soon!

Ombre Fabric

Posted on December 02, 2012 by Jenn Thurston | 1 comment

Ever wonder what to do with that new ombre fabric you've been seeing everywhere?  V and Co has a great idea on her blog for this amazing baby quilt.

Let me be the first to tell you just how easy it is to make!!  I made one this afternoon.  Yes you read that right, one baby quilt in one afternoon.  It's so, so easy.  And addictive, so addictive that I think I may make one in every color!   Checkout the Simply Color line, we have every ombre color!

Stay tuned, I plan on having it quilted soon!  I can only imagine how much cuter it will look, if that's even possible?!
