Hello everyone! I hope summer is treating you well! With the July 4th holiday here last week, we had a lot of family time going on – both my husband and I had siblings from out of state come to town and it was great to be with them.

A few weeks ago I taught a class at a retreat or Baby Lock Sewing Machine Ambassadors to make these simple lined, Heart Drawstring bags. At the event, we made about 50 of them to be filled and donated as Smile Bags to Operation Smile. All of those in attendance were experienced sewing machine users, but not everyone had ever made a quilt block!

I was recently asked by Riley Blake Designs if I would like to play with Tasha Noel’s latest fabric collection, Seaside. I love this crisp line of nautical red, whites, and blues, so of course, I said yes! Tasha Noel has done it again, creating something so sweet and sentimental in her crisp, clear colors of red, navy, aqua, pink and white.

Can I confess something? Quilting the layers of a quilt together is still the part of this whole quilt-making process that intimidates me. And if I ever do quilt the layers myself, I pretty much just stick to straight lines.

I recently made a new table runner for summer using my Sunnyside Ave fabric collection. It’s a quick, patchwork table runner perfect for using charm squares (5″ x 5″). I used a simple Broken Dishes pattern of contrasting lights and darks half-square triangles.

As graduation season rolled around again this spring, I decided to make another Pixelated Heart quilt, this time for my niece. This time we decided to go with a blue/navy color pallette, and once again, I think it’s a winner! I’ve officially decided (for the 89th time) you can’t go wrong with simple patchwork.

A fun quilt pattern-remake to share today featuring a new Christmas-themed fabric collection from Riley Blake Designs.
