Apple Farm Blog Hop!!

It's blog hop time! I hope you have been following along this week by visiting all the talented bloggers to see their fabulous projects! I'm very excited to share with you what I made with Elea Lutz's amazing new fabric line (aren't they all), Apple Farm! Playing with this line was a dream- it's ridiculously C-U-T-E!

One of my favorite quilts from the past is my Little Apples Swoon quilt made in 2012. I thought it would be fitting to make another one with Apple Farm since we're working with apples here.

Forgive my photos, the sun was setting and I'm a procrastinator :)

How about that rick-rack, huh?? I LOVE IT!!
I used Riley Blake's Le Cr'eme Swiss Dots in black for the background.

I knew I had to fussy cut these lil apple picking bears into hexagons as soon as I saw them. I whipped up the cutest (if I don't say so myself...) hexagon bag to store all the crafty things. These jelly handles by Lecien were the perfect pairing! I bought mine here.

It's just the right size for storing a sewing or knitting project. Be sure to visit me on Instagram to enter a chance to win this sweet project bag- that's right, it could be yours!

I hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I enjoyed playing with Elea's sweetest new fabric line. If you haven't already- go buy some! It's too cute not to have in your stash.

Quilt it Modern Blog Tour

Today is my day on the Riley Blake Quilt-it Modern blog tour!

I'm so excited to share my project today! I had a grand idea for using Riley Blake Confetti Cottons solids with Crayola colors. If you know me, you know I love raindrops! I knew immediately what I wanted to make. These beautiful and soft solids are great to work with. 

I put together a sweet and cheery hoop with colorful rainbow raindrops! Isn't it adorable?!

I had purchased this yarn for a previous project that was a total bust, so I used it to wrap the hoop and add some "dreamcatcher-ish danglies" (those are words, right?)

I had lots of fun putting this project together. There are plenty of other talented folks participating in the blog hop so be sure to check them out. Get your hands on these beautiful solids, you're going to love them!

Crayola Cottons colors used:
  • Geranium
  • Cheddar
  • Shamrock
  • Purple
  • Aqua
  • Raspberry
  • Dandelion
  • Mermaid
  • Sand dollar
