Little Dresses for Africa and a Winner

My Quilty Friend Jan over at
is having a drive to sew up some
Little Dresses for Africa.

Sew and Sow Farm

I had time to sew three on my own and
then these two,
I taught some young seamstresses/quilters
some valuable skills.

They learned to make bias tape for
the ties,
make casing for the elastic,
hem the bottom,
and most important give of their
time and talent to others in need.

These are their two dresses.




If you have an hour of time and a yard or so
of fabric, you too
can whip one of these up and
give to a child in need.

For those of you who have been participating
in the In Our Garden Block of the Month,
the winner of these beautiful fabrics
was Sheri Baker. 


Congrats Sheri!!
You will love these fabrics.
Thanks again to Timeless Treasure
for the lovely giveaway prize.
If you have yet to start out Block of the Month,
We would love for you to join us.

Hannah's Berry Patch and a Free Pattern


There have not been very many times
quilting, that after I am completely
finished with the quilt, I say
"I could sooo make that one again."
But then, I finished this one.




Meet "Hannah's Berry Patch"
I designed it using on point quilt blocks with a cute
strawberry applique set in the white squares.

The fabrics are from Jennifer Jangles newest collection.
Strawberry Festival.
They are so fresh and fun and were such
a joy working with them.
Lots of polka dot fun!!


The quilting took far longer than that of the
quilt assembly. 
I like to fuse a little hand stitching
with machine quilting.
It just makes me happy to add
them both into a project.


It is now residing in our living room. 
I am enjoying springtime
in our home, when the
weather has just not been cooperating.

I am working on writing the pattern
for this cutie,
I hope you all love it as much
as I do.


Now for a free little gift for my readers.
If you like the strawberry applique,
you can head over to
Thermoweb and pick up the pattern for
free and a tutorial.
Just look under the Supplies - Strawberry Pattern.
Make sure you say Hi to them as well!!


Have a great day!!!

O'Kelley's Clovers: A New Pattern


If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook,
You have seen the progress of my mini
quilt that I started just a few days shy
of St. Patty's day.

Well, I am proud to say
that I completed the quilt just in time
for it to be displayed on our table.



And I do believe that is one of
my favorites. 
A collection of my favorite soft greens,
that always draw my
attention.

I decided to hand quilt the entire piece.
I used Aurifil 12 wt. thread in a coordinating green and white.
I couldn't be more pleased with it.


 I have noticed since quilting and playing with
colors that greens and aquas,
seem to be my go to colors.

I look into my fabric stash,
and they are filling more than the
rest of the shelves.

They seem to make my heart happy.


I want to thank the lovely ladies
that tested this mini out for me. 
I really appreciate it tremendously.



If you are looking to get a head start on your St. Patty's Day d├ęcor. 
I do believe this would make a perfect addition.


You can find the pattern HERE  
in my Craftsy Store.
