Riley Blake Designs Confetti Cottons

Some girls love diamonds, others love pearls....this girl? Piggy's! I've lost count of how many little stuffed pigs she has and she's always wanted a pet pig. Since the pet pig is out, I figured it only fair that I make her a pig dress!

I have been so excited for this line to come out from Riley Blake Designs! It's called My Unicorn by Kelly Panacci and it's just magical! I'm in love with the colors and that Navy floral print is my absolute favorite!

Fat Quarter Bundle Quilt using the Cricut Maker

One of my big goals this year is to make my family all new blankets. When I first got my sewing machine 15 years ago, I focused almost exclusively on quilts, so my kids all have mum-made baby blankets. Me and my husband still use the first Queen size quilt I ever made for us too. I'm horribly embarrassed by that thing, but my husband loves it and it's still a blanket, soooo.....here we are.


Caticorn Novelty by Riley Blake Designs

 Although my oldest two girls have finally hit the stage that dresses are not their style, they're still very much into magical creatures, so this print was exactly up their alley! Originally I had planned to make a dress for Paisley and a skirt for one of the other two, but once it came, they were all begging for a quilt and I just couldn't say no! It worked out wonderfully because when all was said and done, I still had enough fabric left over to make a dress as well as the quilt!
