Traveling Quilting Kit...

My new fun sewing kit and traveling design board are super cute!  

I usually haul my stuff in boxes or lovely plastic bags to and from 

quilt group.  

Now have this adorable coordinated set to keep my quilting projects and 

supplies together.  

I recently won Deonn's giveaway from Quilt Scapes.  

I seriously won the JACKPOT!  

She sent me all of this adorable Sew Cherry Laminate fabric 

from Riley Blake made up into kits.

All ready to stitch up!  

Thank you Deonn!
Do you want to make a set too? 

Project #1

This is such a great idea!  It is a portable design board and keeps your blocks 

safe and together when traveling!

Click HERE for Tutorial  
Closed and ready to GO!
Open with plenty of room for designing.  

This block is 14 inches!

 Isn't this cherry ribbon adorable?

  Two large buttons on each side.

 There is even a

for UFO to GO!

Project #2

I love this!

It is big enough to carry all of your supplies in one place!

It reminds me of a shaving kit bag but 

oh so sweet with the cherries and red zipper!

This was quick and easy to make!

There is also a VIDEO TUTORIAL.

Project #3 

I need one of these!  

I am so excited to have this cute bag next to my sewing machine to collect 

all those pesky threads and bits of fabric.

This little bag uses laminate fabric inside and out so you can wipe it clean.

I think I need to make another one for the car.

Three great project and tutorials!  

*Any of these projects would be great for Mother's Day!!

Thanks again Deonn!

I have two more fat quarters of Sew Cherry. 

Hmmm....Which Snippet projects should I make next?

Quilty Inspiration...

This weekend was the International Quilt Festival in Cincinnati. 

This was my first time attending a quilt festival!  

It was amazing and a bit overwhelming.  

There were hundreds of beautiful quilts on display 

and hundreds of quilt shops from all over the country.  

I loved every minute of it!!! 

Here are a few photos of some amazing quilts...

Beautiful flowers...

 Love the border on this one...

 Loved the dots with black...

I loved this LDS Temple quilt...

The whole experience was so inspiring.

The End of Spring Break...

Last week was spring break for our children.  
We enjoyed spending time with family and friends.  
The week went by too fast.  
I loved watching the boys play outside, 
shopping with our daughter, 
making treats for the Church dessert auction, 
and going to Grandma and Grandpa's house!   

I did find a little time to experiment with Hexies.  
I can see why they are so popular!  
I have been searching Pinterest for inspiration. 
I think I have come up with a plan, 
but it is going to take a few more Hexies.

I also recieved some fun mail last week.
 I love getting fabric in the mail! 

This sweet package came from Lori.  

Lori's cute blog is Nanny's Nook

I won her giveaway a few weeks ago.  
Five fat quarters of Nancy Drew! 
These fabrics are fantastic!  
I loved reading Nancy Drew when I was young. 
Wouldn't this make a super cute library bag?  
Or a cozy quilt for a reading corner?  

Thank you Lori! 

This package arrived from Deonn.  

Deonn's fun blog is Quiltscapes

This was a super fun and very generous giveaway! 
 I love the cherries!
She included several kits for her Snippets tutorials. 
I can't wait to get started on these fun projects!  

Thank you Deonn!

Now to get back to a normal routine.

Lunches packed 
Backpacks lined up by the door
Clothes, shoes and socks set out
And the dreaded alarm clocks set 

Check, Check, Check and Check!

Yep Spring Break is over...
