Full Size Quilt- Sampler with Applique
This wonderful Full Size quilt has been a pleasure to work on! The warm colors of fall emanate from this quilt with the gentleness of yesteryear.
I used only High Quality designer cotton fabrics by Maywood Studio. The backing is one whole piece so there are no extra lines on the back.
The batting is Warm and White 100% cotton.
It is longarm machine quilted.
The binding was attached to the top side by machine and wrapped around to the back and stitched in place by hand using coordinating thread.
I started it a year ago when I joined a Saturday quilt group. Because I am one who likes to draw outside the lines, I made a few changes to make it my own.
You can machine wash this quilt in cold water with like colors and tumble dry.
Crafted in a smoke free, clean home. Stored in a dark cool room to protect the integrity of the materials.
Made and Ready to ship!
*This is a one of a kind quilt and will not be reproduced

Back To School DIY Eternity Scarf / Necklace
In the back left hand corner you can see me... with the "necklace" to match my Maxi Skirt.
I'll have the link at the bottom of this post for you to find the DIY pattern for this fun and easy, adjustable Maxi Skirt.
1/4 yard- Riley Blake Navy Gray Jersey Knit 57"
- I used the leftovers from when I made my skirt
Standard sewing supplies
Start by cutting 2 strips of fabric that measure about 2" X Width of the Fabric
- If using scraps you will want the end measurement to equal about 104"
- If you would like your scarf/necklace to be more chunky, cut the strips wider than 2"
Sew the strips together to make one long strip
Fold the strip in half lengthwise with RIGHT sides together. Sew along the long side of the strip using a Stretch or Zig Zag stitch. Sew to close ONE end of the necklace.
Turn the tube Right Side out by pushing the dowel into the sewn end of the tube.
Continue pushing until the whole tube is RIGHT side out.
Take the unfinished end of the necklace and tuck the unfinished end into the necklace about 1/2".
Wrap the necklace three times and put it on!
See the instructions for the matching Maxi Skirt HERE
Please leave a comment and let me know how it worked for you, Have a Wonderful Day!

I am having a bloggers block. You know when you can't wait to put something up for everyone to see... yet you can't decide what to do.
My Riley Blake Tutorials are all set to go but I would love to show something here.
Any requests? I am a quilter by nature so something to do with fabric would be nice, but I love a good challenge. All requests will be considered, not all will be made :)
