Quilty Fun is Having a Birthday Party and You're Invited!!!…Free Birthday Cake Pattern from Me to You:) ...

It's birthday time!!…
Who wants to make a cake?

Can you believe that my very first book
"Lessons in Scrappy Patchwork"
is turning one year old this week?

It's been such a fun year
I have loved seeing my 
designs from Quilty Fun
on all of the social media
 made by you:)

It makes my heart skip a beat
knowing that you are having fun
with my designs and bits of fabric:)

I wanted to celebrate by
designing another 
Quilty Fun block just for you…
and it's a birthday cake of course!
to open and download my
 quilty gift to you:)

Then tie on your apron strings
 and make a cake to celebrate with me!

Grab some sweet fabric from your stash…
 and start mixing it up:)

Don't forget to use your
to keep track of your ingredients!

Measure carefully until you get it just right...

Bake at 350*…
and add some icing between the layers.
Don't forget to place a
 cute little candle cup on top
 to hold your stripey candle.

Place your frosted cake onto your 
vintage cake stand 
and tie a sweet bow
around the pedestal:)

Place your candle in the cup
 and now it's time to quilt!

I quilted mine with 
diagonal lines 1 1/4" apart:)

I thought it would be fun to
 hang it from the mantle in my front room
because that's where several of my
 vintage cake stands are.

Happy First Birthday 

The party has just begun
because several of my 
Quilty Fun friends 
have played along with me
and baked a cake too!

to visit the 
and the girls from 
It's Sew Emma
who are my BFF's and 
my amazing publishers of 
Quilty Fun!

There you will find the
 list of 
those participating 
as well as a link to see
each and every 
sweet birthday cake
made for our 
birthday party:)

Thanks to all of you
 for helping us to celebrate!

Have a quilty kind of day…
and don't forget to eat some cake!

Playful Petals...

Good morning cute people!
Today is my day on the 


is a new book by my friend
and I'm "sew" happy to be
 telling you a little bit about it.

Don't you just love this cover photo?
It's comletely scrappy happy and 
you know how I love that!

Corey has written her book centered around 
  fun fusible appliqué 
by simply using one shape…the petal.

There are 18 adorable quilted projects 
showing you how versatile 
the petal shape can be!

In the book she details
 each step of fusible appliqué 
including 3 ways to 
finish with machine stitching.

I love that Corey has done 
9 great projects in the book 
and then added a mini project 
to go along with each as well
who doesn't love a quick project???

I have been following the blog tour and
here are just a few of the awesome projects made from Playful Petals.

I love this pillow that
made from Corey's book.
Isn't it so cute?

also made the same pillow
from the book.
I love both pillows
and how they look completely
different because of 
background color:)

Another super cute project 
that I love from 
the blog tour is this mini quilt made by 

And just look at this
 adorable little mini made by

There are so many pretty quilts 
in Corey's book
and I must say
 that I am especially crushing on
one called Daisy Fields.

I think the simple piecing 
combined with the
 appliquéd daisies 
using the petal shape
is simply adorable.

Another fun thing about 
Corey's blog tour 
that she has designed 
a few free patterns 
as a companion to her book

This one is called Tiled Blooms 
and again…
I love the simple piecing 
with the addition of 
the appliquéd petals.
to go to Corey's blog 
and download the pattern:)

Congratulations to Corey 
on such a great book!

"Flower Patch"…my latest fabric collection!!!

It has been such a crazy busy last couple of weeks
 but I just wanted to take a minute and tell you
 about my newest fabric collection that will be here soon!

Lori Holt
Bee in my Bonnet
Riley Blake Designs

Just like my last four collections…
Flower Patch also includes 
three Fat Quarter Panels.
Each panel consists of 4 fat quarters 
that are prints different than those on the bolt…
giving you 12 total extra prints in fat quarter size
that belong in my Flower Patch collection:)


There are 33 total prints in the line and
 you can see them in the above photo…
all 33 cut into fat quarters and folded
 inside my vintage refrigerator drawer:)

I designed flower patch because I am a gardener 
and I especially love to grow flowers:)

I am in the middle of redoing my bedroom 
right now...
so that it will match my new collection…
and as soon as it gets here in a week or so…
the decorating can begin!!!

As soon as it gets here…
 I'll let you know and also 
show you  close up photos of each print:)

Have a quilty kind of day!
