Happy Tuesday, Everyone!

Better Off Thread

How is everyone this week?  I just got back from a whirlwind trip to a 100th birthday party and now I am planning for my son’s 4th birthday.  I have been asked to combine Wall-e and the Space Shuttle into one theme. That should be…interesting!

Thanks for spreading the word about Sew Cute Tuesday.  We had so many great projects on the link-up last week.  Here are a few:

•••

1

Gemma at Pretty Bobbins made this beautiful, fussy cut, quilt for her daughter’s new big girl bed.  Check out her blog for more amazing photos (you have to see Gemma’s feather quilting!).

•••

2

Adrianne at On the Windy Side made these nesting bowls for a swap partner (lucky partner!).  I love the improv piecing in the center mixed with that grey linen!

•••

3

Melissa at We Shall Sew’s little hexie quilt is so adorable.  The quilting is the perfect touch and I love her use of spray baste for appliqué. Check out Melissa’s blog for details on how she made this mini.

How was everyone’s Monday?
Yesterday, I announced a quilt-along that I will be hosting along with Melissa from Melia Mae Quiltingf.  We will be making Oh Fransson’s Advent Calendar and it’s the perfect project for anyone who has been wanted to try out quilting, or anyone who wants a beautiful Advent Calendar in time for December.  Please check it out and join us!

Thanks for all the amazing link-ups last week.  Here are a few that caught my eye:

1

Beth at Plum and June designed this sweet mini for her daughter and the pattern is available in the current issue of Fat Quarterly Magazine.  Check out Beth’s blog for her Briar Rose version (ADORABLE!).

•••

2

I love the colors that Rhonda from Patchwork Sampler  chose for her log cabin quilt.  The log cabins are really fun, too!  I don’t think I’ve ever seen spiral ones.

•••

3

Yeka at Lollipop Garden Crafts altered an existing dress pattern to make this sweet, beautifully finished and lined pinafore for her daughter.  Check out her blog for the modifications and detail photos.  I’ll be keeping this one in mid for Emmeline!

Welcome back!
I think the unofficial theme for this past week was “scrappy”, or at least that is what caught my eye!

•••

1

I REALLY need to get some organization in my life.  Here is a great fabric basket, by Stephanie at Quarter Incher, and I think I want one for every room in my house!  I love the scrappy fabrics mixed with the linen and also that side pocket.

•••

2

Dee at Dee’s Doodles made this lovely scrappy version of the Swoon Quilt.  It’s so pretty and cheerful! The quilting is amazing, too.

•••

3

Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts finished her “Oh My Scrappy Stars!” Quilt and it is gorgeous!  I really love the colors in her postage stamp background.  I think you deserve a nice, long, nap under that quilt, Lorna.

Here are some beautiful projects from last week that caught my eye:

1

Angela from “Sewing With Squeak”  made this adorable and humorous wiener dog quilt from the book, “Dare to be Square”.  I am using the same book to make a robot quilt for Liam, so I was very excited to see this doggy!  Angela had several amazing finishes, so check out her blog to see them all.

•••

2

Susan at “The Bored Zombie” shared her Dizzy Dresdens Mini Quilt.  Everything about this quilt is amazing; the colors, those stripes, the design and the quilting!!

•••

3

I adore this vintage-style polka-dot dress by Hannah at “Made With Hugs and Kisses”.  Love those red polka-dots and that crinoline!

 I’ve been working on a pattern for Moda Bakeshop this past week, so it’s been a bit quiet.  I’ll try to post updates on some new projects soon. Until then, enjoy everyone’s link-ups!

2

I am slowly working on an embroidery pattern right now, so I am in awe at Nicola of Nicola Foreman Quilt’s intricate handwork.


3

Monica from Adriondack Inspired made this adorably detailed Edelweiss Dress.  I love the eyelet trim.  Check out her blog for a link to the pattern.

•••

Two bloggers linked-up projects made from my patterns and tutorials, so how can I not give a little shout out to them?!

5

Janet from Simply Pieced made this off-center Lone Star and her quilting is perfection!

Happy July, everyone, and thanks for stopping by  Sew Cute Tuesday!

What does everyone have in store for this month?  I am getting ready to go on a ten day internet-free vacation, so it will probably get quiet here for a little bit, but I am hoping for Sew Cute Tuesday to continue as scheduled. When I get back, I’ll be announcing something fun to celebrate my blogiversary , so stay tuned!

Check out a few of fun projects from last week:
Jessica at Quilty Habit made this adorable, modern baby quilt using the “Stacked Squares” pattern from Moda.  (Jessica, I can’t get that pattern out of my head, either!) Check out the cute story behind the quilt and a link to the pattern at Jessica’s blog.
•••
Liz at Shush-I’m Quilting posted this great tutorial for a Fountain Pen Roll.  I wish I had a pen collection, so I could make one!  What a lucky husband.
•••

Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts is working on this “Oh My Scrappy Stars” Quilt and it is amazing!  You need to check out her blog to see the progress she has made on it this week. Lorna has organized a quilt-along for this quilt and it in’t too late to join in.

I hope everyone had a great week.  Here are a few of the fantastic projects that were linked up last week.  They were each made from tutorials, so be sure to check out each blog for links:
How adorable is this owl pincushion made by Jackie at NW Patchwork?  This is a great gift idea for anyone who loves to sew.
•••
Stephanie at Quarter Incher made this amazing Bloomin’ quilt-as-you-go panel.  I can’t wait to see the finished pillow.
•••

Anna at the Crooked Banana sewed up this amazingly detailed paper-pieced Tardis block.  I will admit, I have never watched “Dr. Who”, but this is one impressive block and I know I have friends who will appreciate it.

It’s time for Sew Cute Tuesday!

There were so many fantastic link-ups last week. Thank you all so much for spreading the word.  I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to comment on everyone’s posts.  I have several deadlines at the end of this month that are keeping me busy.  My dream is to be able to leave a comment on every single blog (I also dream of a vacation to Hawaii, but that isn’t happening anytime soon!).

•••

Here are a few great projects from last week:

Kim at Robot Mom Sews made three of these laminated crayon wallets.  This is another one of those items that is on my to-do list for the kids.  Check out her blog for a great tutorial on laminating fabrics.  Don’t you think that kitty fabric is the cutest!

•••

All I can say is “WOW!”  when I look at this quilt top made by Marianne at Sew Paint It.  There is so much to look at and I love all the fussy cutting. Go to her blog for close-ups of the fabric and piecing. A very lucky little girl will be getting this quilt!

•••

June at Lil Pip sewed up this “Pristine Swing Dress” out of knit and it turned out really cute.  She used a pattern line called “Blank Slate Patterns” and they have fantastic kid’s patterns and several for boys.  You can find out more info on June’s blog.  I’m going to try them out!

Are you ready to link-up?!

I had a busy week sewing for work, but I’m going to be getting back to personal projects this week, and I can’t wait!
So many great projects were shared last week and here are a few that inspired me:
•••
Adrianne from “On the Windy Side” made this striking low-volume plus quilt using Oakshott for the solids.   I have been looking for color inspiration for the low-volume spiderweb that I want to make and THIS is it.  If you haven’t worked with Oakshott, try them out.  They are so amazing.
•••
I love these drawstring preschool bags Alyce from “Blossom Heart Quilts” made for her son.  My poor son has an extra change of clothes in a giant zip-lock bag.  I think he would really love these, especially with a robot print!
•••
Michelle at “Squeek Crafts” made these postage stamp pillows.  What a great use for scraps and I love that little wonky star on the blue pillow.  Check out Michelle’s blog to see how she did the back opening.  I like it better than the envelope back I normally do.

There were 40 fantastic link-ups last week! You guys rock! Thanks for spreading the word about Sew Cute Tuesday.

Here are a few projects that caught my eye:

•••

Cassandra from Cass Can Sew made this chic little girl’s capelet from pink corduroy and vintage sheets.  What little girl wouldn’t want to twirl around in this?

•••

I love this adorable Tea or Coffee mini made by Gemma from Pretty Bobbins.  She is selling the pattern on Craftsy and she also has crazy-cute pattern for a retro TV that you MUST check out.

•••

Jill from Creating My Way To Success posted a tutorial for this cute and funny little “A Round Tuit” Mug Rug.  This would make a great gift (most specifically for your husband, ha-ha! “).  My family used to go to a mini-golf course when I was little that would hand out “Round Tuits”, so I have a certain fondness for this little mug rug.
