Sweetie Pie Sew Along Week 7

Sweetie Pie Sew Along Week 7 
How fun are these blocks? 
If you haven't tried one yet...you need to. 
Lori Holt shows how simple and fun these Sweetie Pie 
blocks can be. Check out her blog here
where you can read about Lori's tips and tricks to making these 
fabulous dresdan plate quilt blocks.



I have especially enjoyed seeing all the 
different color palettes that everyone has chosen.

The consensus is that everyone is in the mood for spring colors 
...with the yummy fruit shapes in the center which give this block its charm...how can you not love the cuteness!


I decided to make a mini quilt with my 
Sweetie Pie block.


Don't you just love the blueberries!!!
I do and that's why I chose this block.


I love the detail Lori adds to her blocks. Of course, I had to add those same little details by doing some embroidery on my blueberries, leaves and stems.  The stitching gives everything an added charm factor  that goes along with everything Lori does so well.

These colors made me feel like…

Goldilocks Fabric Tour
Jill Howarth has designed a darling fabric line  based around the beloved storybook of  Goldilocks and the three bears.  Her eye for detail and color choices  make this line so sweet.

Jill designs for Riley Blake Designs and  you can find her whole collection  of adorable prints here...

Fabric always inspires my designs and I couldn't  help myself...I had to make my grand daughters  another cute mini quilt for  their doll bed...they like to play with when they visit.

These are 3" finished mini houses.  I like to think Goldilocks would have played  with the three bears in each of these cute houses:)

Notice the cute mushrooms, flowers,  bears and Goldilocks, of course.

The little girls are going to spend hours  of fun remaking this bed and using  this cute mini Goldilocks House quilt to cover their dolls. *** I was able to fussy cut some of the  cute motifs so they showed in the mini houses.  You could play I-spy and te

How whimsical and cute is this new Enchanted Fabric line designed by Dodi Poulson for Riley Blake Designs
The color palette of navy blue, teal, mint 
and pinks are irresistible. 
The squirrel motive in one of the prints blends 
perfectly with the geometrics, polka dots and flowers.


I decided to make some 2" hexagons using  the English Paper Piecing method. The fabrics were so fun to fussy cut the  motifs in this collection.


Pillows are such a great way to add  color to any space in your home. They are fun elements of added texture to beds, chairs and sofas.

Once the hexagons were hand stitched they were  placed on a whole cloth and machine stitched  through the middle and outside edges of each hexagon. The edge of the pillow is bound just like a quilt  which gives it a nice finished look.

Thank you Dodi for such fun colors and  designs that make sewing so enjoyable!
