I’m the first and only quilter in my family, so whenever my mom sews I get pretty excited! Had to share this hexagon pouf that she made using fabrics from my La Conner collection. =) Isn’t it great?!
This hexagon pouf pattern is by Angel Lea Designs and can be found HERE. My mom doesn’t sew very frequently, so if she can do it then you can to!
As a side note, my La Conner fabrics are FINALLY starting to show up in shops now, so be sure to check your local quilt shop or your favorite online shop for my latest collection.
My boys have gotten so much use out of this pouf. We had to keep stuffing it with more fluff because they use it so much.
I was being sneaky and captured these photos of Ethan on the pouf while watching Ninjago. Must be a pretty hilarious show! 😉
It means so much to me having my mom sew with my fabrics. <3 I remember going to JoAnn fabrics with her when I was little so we could pick out fabrics for new pajamas or holiday-themed table cloths. I use to love playing with her sewing notions and going through all the stuff in her sewing bag.
Lots of quilts in our living room! The two pictured here are from my upcoming book, Quilt As-You-Go Made Vintage which comes out this October. You can pre-order it HERE. Both quilts were made using the QAYG technique. The one that my son is snuggled up in was assembled and quilted by my talented instagram friend, Faith Essenburg of Sarana Ave blog.
The quilt hanging on the wall was made using true vintage quilt blocks. I found these 1930’s quilt blocks on eBay and very carefully assembled them using QAYG, which helped to stabilize them. I will tell you how to do this in my 2nd book. I’ll post more about this quilt on a separate blog post. 🙂
Lastly, I wanted to end this post with a big, warm THANK YOU to all that played a part in my leukemia quilt auction for Ellia post. This quilt was sent to Mary for her generous contribution. Words really can’t describe my gratitude and the amount of love I felt from all of you in that post. Thanks for sharing, commenting, bidding, reading. $550 was raised to go towards Ellia’s leukemia expenses. A big thank you on behalf of Ellia’s family as well.
I threw in a few extra goodies for Mary. I hope she loves everything!
Thanks for stopping by and reading me. 🙂 Enjoy the Summer! It’s supposed to get up to 95 today….i think i’m gonna melt.
