TBT Modern: Snowball

15 Oct 2015


  Today I am excited to show you this fun Snowball quilt block! I really love the simple look and versatility of this block. Because it is called the Snowball, I decided to make one block to go with the icy winter theme. I chose four different cool blue tones. I think a whole quilt made in this monochromatic blue color scheme would be beautiful! For the second block, I opted for brighter colors. I absolutely love this color combination! This would be so fun as a baby quilt. (Don't look at my uneven seams - I'm still learning!) So ... more

Project Design Team Wednesday ~ Woodland Tree Stump

07 Oct 2015

One of my favorite new fabric lines from Riley Blake Design is Woodland Spring by Dani of Designed by Dani. I fell in love with the deer print at first, then with the whole line. Just the right amount of sweetness without being too cutesy, that's what I love! As I was looking at the fabric, I had an image of a child sitting on a tree stump and reading somewhere in the woodlands (I know, sometimes my imagination runs wild and goes everywhere) ... so I decided to make a floor pillow for little kids by just using one ... more
