Color It Red Blog Hop

Welcome to day 2 of the Color It Red Blog Hop hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt. I knew from the beginning that I wanted to use the lay cake Little Sweetheart by Laundry Basket Quilts that I have been saving….

to make the pattern Sweetheart also by Laundry Basket Quilts.

I had every intention of finishing but with work and home improvement projects, that didn’t happen. It is a simple project so I’m sure I will be able to finish it soon.

The fabrics are just beautiful. I used Little Sweetheart for the hearts. The background fabrics are a mix of Little Sweetheart and various other fabrics from Edyta Sitars other fabric lines.

Turning the edges under, then using fusible web, and then hand stitching the edges down with the button stitch is becoming my favorite method.

I need to make a couple more blocks and then finish the stitching. Then I can sew the blocks together.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day of hopping!

This year I’m sharing a recipe that came from my Grandma’s recipe book that I received after she pasted 19yrs ago. I was surprised she had any cookbooks cause I never knew to bake anything other than cornbread.

For this hop I wanted to try something I’ve never done before, a zip pouch. I’m probably one of the few who has never made one. Things with zippers have always intimidated me.

Novelty fabrics are a great way to theme any project. Whatever you are into there is a novelty fabric for it. There are a variety of options when it comes to using them in projects. Novelty fabrics are not limited to just quilts either. They are great choices for bags, pillows, clothes, curtains, and so on.
