First, I’d like to share some fun and exciting news! I co-authored the following book, 75 Fun Fat-Quarter Quilts, along with 13 other popular designers. This book comes out this December, 2015. The strippy quilt, shown above and below, is featured in the book. It is quick to assemble and uses almost the entire fat quarter bundle with little to no waste. I assembled it via the Quilt As-You-Go method, detailed in my other book Quilt As-You-Go Made Modern, but I also go over the technique briefly in this new book.
I believe in my last forever-ago post I mentioned that I was preggo. Well, baby Simon has arrived! He arrived like a freight train on July 3rd at 12:47 AM, and shares a birthday with my husband. Here he is at one month, and is getting chubbier by the day. He’s almost 2 months now and my mom calls him “butterball.”

As mentioned, these beautiful fabrics were provided by Lecien Fabrics. I just love their vintage vibe and soft floral designs, and the quality of their fabric (made in Japan) is excellent. This is their new Flower Sugar line that will be in stores Fall, 2015.
These next two photos I had to share. I think Paige has adopted Simon as her little pup. She responds to his every squeak and loves to cuddle him. It’s one of the sweetest things ever.

More recently i’ve had the privilege of working with Lecien’s latest Princess Rose collection which comes out this Fall. Isn’t it beautiful? If you haven’t been able to tell yet, I’m kind of a sucker for whimsy florals. xoxo
I have ambitious plans for this quilt and will show more previews later…here’s a peak of what I’m scheming…
