Sew Simple Shapes Remix!

If you haven’t heard of Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet Co.’s Sew Simple Shapes for Riley Blake Designs, you’re missing out! These see-through, sturdy plastic shapes provide an endless variety of really cute and easy applique designs.

Lori’s first set of Sew Simple Shapes was Bloom. These twenty-four, mix and match shapes featured a variety of flowers, leaves and petals.

Bloom was just the start. Lori has released a new set with almost every sew-along she’s hosted. From Let’s Bake to Vintage Housewife, you can collect them all! Inquire about them at your nearest quilt shop in person or online.

So, you’re already a Sew Simple Shapes collector?

We have some exciting news! The Sew Simple Shapes Remix is here!

On the third Wednesday of the month, Lori, the applique queen bee herself, remixes her shapes to bring you a fresh new way to put them together. You will find this project here on the RBD blog. Each month will be a surprise!

On the third Friday of the month, Lori will show you the remix on her wildly popular YouTube CHANNEL, so mark your calendars now!

There’s no pattern, no sew-along, no finished quilt, just fun motivation to get your creative juices flowing. You’ll be inspired to make all the cute things!
