How I Choose Quilt Fabrics

While I was in Portland for Quilt Market the wonderful Jenny from Martingale recorded me talking about how I choose fabrics for a scrappy 2 or 3 coloured quilt. You can see it below and go to the Martingale Blog to read more about my fabric and colour choices!

And check out my book Scrappy and Happy Quilts to men your own scrappy quilt!

Ottobre 4/2018

I love it when a new Ottobre magazine appears in my mailbox.
I really like this hoodie for the older girls.
And this would be a great jacket for Olive.

Daisy Quilt Pattern

The pattern includes 2 foundation pieced blocks - the daisy flower block and the stem and leaf block.
There are 2 ways you can make the stem and leaf block. You can paper piece the entire block or you can just paper piece the leaves and traditionally piece the rest of the block.

As a bonus I've included instructions for making a 50" x 60" quilt from the blocks!

Daisy Quilt

I'm so excited to finally share this quilt that I've been working on for the last few months!! 
I loved every moment of making this quilt. From choosing the colours of Cotton Supreme Solids to use.
To drawing it out in Electric Quilt 8.
 To paper piecing each block.

 To quilting and finally binding it.
To see more details go to the RJR blog

 Go to their Instagram page for a chance to win a pack of the fabrics I used in the quilt!

McCalls 7333

One thing my wardrobe was missing was a light weight jacket, especially one I could wear over button up shirts. Enter McCalls 7333. I found this amazing Nani Iro linen at Miss Matatabi (sold out now) and I knew it would be perfect. I made a size Large and the only adjustment was to take it up an inch as I was running out of fabric (plus you'd never say I was tall!!). It is a really generously sized pattern, I like it being quite big, but I probably could've sized down. 
I'm really happy with this, I'd definitely consider using this pattern again.
