Sarah Jane - Children at Play Quilt Tutorial

Sarah Jane is a children's book illustrator who recently designed the "Children at Play" fabric collection for Michael Miller. I absolutely love these fabrics. I love the whimsical innocence. Hopscotch, paper airplanes, bicycles, pinwheels... they are adorable.

You can find the Children at Play cottons at The Dizzy Daizy, and you can find the flannels at Flannel Queen.

Sarah recently shared a tutorial for this paper airplane quilt on Michael Miller's blog.  She also has a Flickr Group you can visit to see creations using her fabrics. Have you seen the little girl's dress that uses the border print? Oh my goodness, it's way too cute. So inspiring!!!

Feeling Groovy!

Sara & I LOVE the fabric collections put out by Riley Blake Designs. Their newest line, Feeling Groovy, carries their signature look -- bright, youthful & always cheerful! I was at their warehouse the other day and they had just received a small shipment of Fat Quarter Bundles, so I snatched up a few. The full shipment is scheduled to arrive soon. So here's your sneak peak of this fun collection!

You can pick a bundle up at The Dizzy Daizy Quilt Shoppe.

I know it's shocking, but my favorite prints are the little tiny daisies. I also LOVE the little mushrooms & cloud print. The stripes are adorable, too - major cute factor here!

The Flannel Queen Pin Cushion

Up until recently, I was using a classic strawberry pin cushion. Functional, yes. Modern and fun and beautiful, no.

Enter the Flannel Queen Pin Cushions. Are these pin cushions functional? Yes. Are they modern, fun, and beautiful? See for yourself...

Grab one for yourself and one for the seamstresses on your Christmas list.
Go to Flannel Queen, and look in the Supplies category.

The absolutely beautiful Urban Flannel collection designed by Valori Wells for Free Spirit has arrived at Flannel Queen! I love the big, bolt prints and rich colors...

...I think I've decided that the little dots are my favorite. Or maybe the birds. :)

And while you're at Flannel Queen, be sure to look at the new trim by Riley Blake. Pom Poms and Ric Rac in really fun colors.

Wanna Be a Cowboy flannel has arrived!

I love the collections Riley Blake has delivered in quilter's flannel. Just Dreamy, Be Merry, and All Star are all beautiful. Add another one to the list! Wanna Be a Cowboy, a collection designed by Samantha Walker, is now in flannel. I absolutely love the dots and stripes. Take a look:

A few of my favorite things...

Today I'm sharing a few of my favorite things.

1. Princess Pea Quilt

I ran across this princess pea blanket tutorial at the Moda Bake Shop. Is it too cute, or what? I'm going to have to make this someday.

2. Happy Bee flannel fabric

I have been in love with this bee fabric forever. Doesn't it just make you smile?

3. Yule Trees flannel fabric - NEW!

My sister, owner of The Dizzy Daizy shop on Etsy, carries a fabulous selection of Michael Miller cotton fabric. The Yule Trees has always been one of my favorites. My sister informed me today that the Yule Trees are now available in flannel! I ordered it immediately. It will be available late July. I can't wait!
