This week has been such a whirlwind! We have my husband’s fun (big!) family to our home & are having so much fun. The turkey, stuffing, casseroles, mashed potatoes and rolls all finished at about the same time and with a lot of help, we pulled off a perfect Thanksgiving dinner. I’ll always remember it! I still squeezed in a bit of shopping today (it’s right before Christmas, but I snagged this coat in black that I’ve been dying for for 40% off). J Crew’s sale today is the perfect way to pick up nice wool sweaters and basics you can use for years at 40% off with the coupon HOLIDAY! Just a heads up in case you need warm winter basics!
Today is my day on the Quilt Petite Blog Hop! Sedef Imer of the incredibly beautiful blog Down Grapevine Lane just released her first book! If you haven’t heard about this sweet little book yet, I’d love to introduce you! You’ll find Sedef’s little projects perfect for getting your sew-jo back. Full of little quilts, easy wins, and pretty results, you’ll quickly find yourself head over heels for Sedef’s work.
If you participate in our little shop’s Liberty of London monthly club, you’ll definitely want to grab a copy of this little book. The patterns are perfect for dainty little prints. Of course, I had just been sorting my scrap bin and had to grab a few pieces that jumped out at me.
I’ve had my eye on this little pinwheels quilt since I first opened the book. This little mini quilt has everything I love about quilting in one little pattern. Perfect little points? check. Lots of movement? check. A great way to showcase scraps? check and check. So I had to make a test block (of course!)
And it was so cute & I loved the little pincusion on the back cover of Quilt Petite so much I instantly turned that one block into a new pincushion. Isn’t it adorable?!
So, if you are looking to make some quick, simply projects over your holiday but don’t want to get stuck in yet another huge, unfinishable project, make sure you grab a copy of Quilt Petite: 18 Sweet and Modern Mini Quilts and More. The stories on each quilt capture your heart and the patterns capture your imagination! You can order Quilt Petite via amazon here.
And make sure you visit Sunday evening! That hoop tutorial I’ve been promising should be complete (it’s been a little crazy over here – I’m sorry! And on Monday, as the first of several ‘favorite things’ giveaways this season, I’ll be giving away (for one day only!!!) a little e-book with three quick pillow patterns. You won’t want to miss it!
Make sure to follow along on the blog hop & meet these amazing quilters. There might be a giveway at Down Grapevine Lane, so make sure to start there!
