Hello Friends, I am excited I am finally able to share with you the news of a new fabric line Heads Up that is released by Quilting Treasures.  I loved this line as soon as I was shown the color card for the fabrics – the reason being I felt like these fabrics would work just as well for home dec purposes in additional to quilty creations despite them being kid-themed.  I designed two child quilts with this line… one was shown in American Quilt Retailer‘s Summer 2015 issue:



The other was shown in McCall’s Quick Quilts December 2015/January 2016 issue.  Oh look, on the opposite page is my Rows of Roses quilt. :)

January: Heads Up Crib Quilt & Playmat (Quilting Treasures)


Hello Friends, I hope you have had a great day!  Tuesdays are always extra busy for me because of music lessons after school.  But it’s okay, because being a chauffeur is part of my job description as a Mom.   I have a baby quilt design that is free to use to share with you today!  Baby Bunny (offered in boy and girl versions) is designed with Benartex’s Bunny Hop fabric line.

The neat thing about this line is that Benartex is also offering the flannel option for the fabrics!  I know some babies are going to be extra blessed with sweet things made with this fabric line.
