My mom made this! Also, THANK YOU <3

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.

    I love the pouf! Isn’t it wonderful to have a very talented mom? My mom was talented too. She made everything, lace, clothing, stitchery. I miss her so much
    I love your photos. You are so inspiring Jera. Happy Hot days of summer. We are having a cooler summer here. The media is in a frenzy over Hot weather.
    This is a good time to stay inside or go out and find AC at the library or the mall, or someplace fun

    Love all the quilts of course, but the sweet smile of the child has made me happy.

    I am the lucky winner of your beautiful quilt, and I LOVE all the wonderful extras you included. I know I am blessed to be in a position where I could help out in the fund raising for your friend, I will keep them in my prayers. I am inspired to try your quilt as you go method, and so excited to use your lovely new fabric. Love the pouf too. Thanks again, you made my day with your lovely quilt and goodies.

    What a pretty pouf and the quilts too!! Your book is one of the few quilts books I want to get. Well this one and the last one too. Your quilts are always gorgeous.

    I love the big hexie pouf! Kudos to your mom, she has obviously not lost any momentum in her sewing skills. I saved all the fun things my mom made for my boys and now their little ones are using them and loving them just as much, my mama would be so happy. Another great post filled with beautiful pics. Enjoy these unusually hot summer days…..I think we’ve flip flopped temps, we’re in the 70s right now and I want my hot August back 🙂

    Hi Jera! have had your QAYG modern book for a couple of years and just made a tabletopper with the technique. It was so easy! Do you use QAYG for all of your quilt projects? If not, can you share what projects you use traditional quilting methods on and why? Thanks!

    I ordered both QAYG books you wrote, newest one says release date Oct 1, tracking says they both are coming tomorrow! I already plan to make your free pattern La Conner Stars,using 36 fat quarters. My question is, what is the best cutting diagram using the fat quarters to be sure I have enough for all 5 stars from each piece. I definitely need more direction on that! all I seem to know is cut the largest pieces first! Puzzled by this really,any help would be most welcome! I assume I can do the QASY technique on this pattern,right? Thank you soo much, each project I have seen is just fabulous! As is the fabric it self. Big fan here, and those fabric tulips, please do a tutorial on that !!!

    Hi Jera! I just love your blog and fabrics and tutorials. Ordered la Conner after I saw your tutorial on fat quarter shop, and looking forward to starting that jelly roll quilt (and getting your book, and quilty box!) I can go on… Anyway, you have a Cozy Cabin quilt from your booth that I adore — can you let us know when you will be posting/selling this? It’s perfect for the holidays approaching! Thank you for all that you do!
