It's My Day For The My Happy Place Row Along

It's another row along with Seams To Be Sew...fun!
Thank you, Marian, for all you did to put this together and arrange giveaways.
This time we had to create something that was "My Happy Place."
For me, there is nothing happier than being at home with my dogs and sewing.


You can find the pattern for my row at Just Let Me Quilt's Craftsy store HERE.

Northcott has generously sponsored us...thank you, Northcott! They were so kind 
to send me one yard from the Canvas line by Deborah Edwards for my background.
I loved it so much I bought a fat quarter bundle to use for the applique.


Bruster, is the king of the house and loves to sleep under the covers...such a baby!


Bella is scared of everything, but she'll sound like she's going to eat you if you visit.


Marian at Seams To Be Sew did a great job getting this row along going.
Thanks, Marian!


There are so many amazing rows this year...check them out!

It's Day Five Of The Welcome To My House Blog Hop-My Day Too

It's been an amazing week of houses in all sorts of creations in the Welcome To My House
blog hop. I'm so grateful to all of you who got creative and those of you who have visited.
I hate to see this end, but I always feel that way on the last day of a blog hop.
Thank you everyone!

It's my day for sharing my house project and I chose to use the Accuquilt schoolhouse
 die I've had for several years. It made cutting out my schoolhouses so easy!

Night School
Finished size: 58" x 58"


The center blocks are unfinished squares measuring 10 1/2" x 10 1/2".
The schoolhouses fit perfectly!


The fabrics are some I found at a quilt store going out-of-business...
Maywood Whisper Whites and In The Black Continuum.
I quilted lines using Aurifil white 50wt thread.


There are so many more houses to see...

Benartex Fabric By Cherry Guidry "Words To Live By"

It's been a very busy quilting and blog hopping week for me!
Today I'm sharing "Words To Live By" for Benartex, but if you're 
looking for the Welcome To My House blog hop you can find it HERE.

Cherry Guidry of Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio is one of my favorite fabric designers.
I've known Cherry for several years because of blog hops we were both involved in and it's been a
pleasure to watch her grow into such an incredible designer. Her fabric designs and quilting are  amazing, so I was very excited when Benartex asked me to sew something with her fabric for a hop.


All You Need Is Love
Finished quilt is 42" x 48"


I know you can hear the Beatles singing "All You Need Is Love" in your head right now.
It's one of my favorite songs!
"All you need is love. Love is all you need."

Cherry's newest fabric, "Words to Live By", includes panels with different sayings to live
by...love, joy, and happiness. Things we all need in our lives! I used three of the word sayings
from the love panel. The other panels are pretty and awesome, too!




Adding the applique flower was a breeze because I used my favorite iron-on adhesive,
Therm O Web's Heat n Bond Lite. The protective paper peels right off...no scoring with a pin.




The fabric I used for the All You Need Is Love quilt top:

1/2 yard - Tiny Words Turquoise
1/2 yard - Happy Medallion Yellow
1/2 yard - Keys Turquoise
1/2 yard - Daisy Grey
1 yard - Modern Lace White
1 yard - Happy Medallion Grey 
1 – Panel - Love Panel Grey/Multi (I used three of the sayings)




You can find the pattern for All You Need Is Love in my Craftsy pattern store HERE.
