Jelly Roll Ripple Quilt with The Fat Quarter Shop

Hello, All!  I could hardly wait to share with 
you my version of the Jelly Roll Ripple Quilt 
from the Fat Quarter Shop

I was excited to be invited by the 
Fat Quarter Shop 
to sew along this beautiful quilt
for the Short Cut Quilt Series.

You can find the
free pattern Here
and a video Here

With a name of Jelly Roll Ripple, 
you can suspect that a Jelly Roll 
is part of the pattern. 

Well, instead of a Jelly Roll,
I picked out a Rolie Polie  
by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake Designs.
It is a called A Little Sweetness.

I absolutely love the sweet prints.
I am quite partial to the colors
and the little dresdens.

I love the dresdens!!

I had the whole quilt
cut and pieced in 
an afternoon.
Can't beat that!!

With the little leftovers from the
quilt, and I mean little, 
I was able to make this
cute little coordinating 
Bunny Pillow,
which you can find the
free pattern here

I can't wait to have this little
beauty hanging on our living room wall.
Just Love It!
And don't forget to stop by and 
check out the Fat Quarters Shop
and to check out
there other great products and

Small, Smaller, Smallest Blog Hop

If this hop would have been
Big, Bigger, Biggest, 
I know that I would have
never been able to pull of any project.
(I kind of lost my momentum for a bit
or maybe this project started it up again)

But quite thankfully, 
it is the Small, Smaller, 
Smallest Bog Hop
Hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt.

I didn't have a hard time 
thinking of what to make for this one.

I pulled out a sewing book 
of mine called
Sewing Pretty Little Things 
by Cherie Lee.
Inside is a cute little clutch purse.
I slightly tweaked it a bit
to work with what I needed and got

It is a zippered clutch that folds in half.
I enlarge the pattern a bit for it to 
fit the zipper that I had on hand.

I used cork for the top decorative part, 
and added straight stitching with Aurifil 12 wt.
for added detail.

I like to pick up different little elements
at the craft store when I go 
and I saw a set of  metal inspirational saying
in the scrapbooking department.

I totally cheated and sewed it on
my machine with a wide zig-zag stitch.

It fits just the right amount of make-up 
and brushes in it.

Thanks for stopping by
my blog  
for the Small, Smaller and Smallest
Blog Hop.
Please stop in and visit today's hoppers.

One Monthly Goal - March

Well, the post title says 
One Monthly Goal, 

but I have never been one
to stick with titles.
Why start now?!?
So instead of one goal, 
I am going for three.
Crazy, I know!!
Especially since, 
we are already on the 7th day
of the month and 
I am on the computer rather
than sewing away.
So, here it goes....

Goal #1
(Image from Amazon)

I found the most adorable pincushion
kit on Amazon.  
It is not expected to be here until 
Friday, so I am excited to give this little
cutie a try.  
I have yet to make a pincushion
from fabrics, so this 
will all be new to me.
I can't wait to show off the
end results.

Goal #2

I bought 4 of 
these quilt kits. 
(Yes, I really said 4)
when they were on clearance
at Craftsy.
The fabrics are from Tula Pink collection,
Holiday Homies. 
My kids will love them. 
I want to get one pieced
so that it can be ready for 
Christmas this year.
and if I have time

Goal #3

I splurged this month and
bought myself a 
and inside was these 
adorable charms and
a pattern that came with it.
I might have to get a jump start on 
Christmas presents or maybe
I should keep this one 
for myself!!

Thank you to Patty of 
Elm Street Quilts for hosting.
I can't wait to give you an update on 
how the month went.
