The Sweet Pickins’ club at Quilt In Joy is a year long club that features the This And That Pattern Company. They meet every month for a demo on a pattern taught by Laura, one of Quilt In Joy’s talented employees.

Meet Laura….and the pickins’ club

The projects they work on in this club are so darn cute. If I wasn’t already committed to a million things, I think this would be on my to-do’s.

They’re also working on a mystery quilt along with their monthly pattern pick. Kathy’s off to a great start with her 1st block.

Here’s a few of the projects. A cute wallet clutch, a basket for your desk, and aren’t those notebook covers adorable!

This month’s project is the Lazy Daisy bag. Laura made it out of the Bliss charm pack with some Michael Miller handles.

And Kathy is using  Max and Whiskers from Basic Grey.

Paige made  a pattern of the cute kitty in the fabric line for Kathy to applique on the front of the bag instead of the daisies.

Kathy, you’ve got to bring your bag into the shop when your done so I can get get pics. It’s gonna be seriously cute!

Have a great weekend y’all!, but I seriously need to. Spring is much harder on my house than winter especially with a dog in the family.

Remember this vision of Christmas goodness?

Just got it back from the quilter and she used a blue marking pen on it. Need I say more? I really hate those things. They are very unpredictable! For starters, I’m not the girl who washes a quilt when I get it done. I like crisp and fresh. So that’s a little disappointing, but what’s a bigger disappointment is that I’m going to end up trashing something I worked hard on, cost a lot of money, cause let’s face it people fabric is not cheap, and it’s from my favorite lines of all time…ugh. I’m sooo frustrated. These are the pics of the quilt after it’s been washed a zillion times using a zillion methods. You may need to enlarge them for the blue to show up.

The blue is all over the borders also. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!…help:(

On a more positive note, I have been working on some bindings and a cute little baby quilt from the Just Dreamy line from Riley Blake.

Adorable! Can’t wait to finish this one! I see giant rick rack in this quilts future.

Shelley and I had a crafty day on Tuesday. We made the Moda Bake Shop’s  Memo Board. It’s so much more fun to do things with friends. Even Daisy had a playdate.

Meet Dixie, Shelley’s cute pup. She came to help us out.

Just a few simple ingredients for this recipe:

Charm pack

Fusible fleece


Ribbons and buttons

Foam board


Shelley made hers from Amy Butler solids.

And I used Basic Grey’s Origins.


They’re almost too cute to put notes and pictures on!












Honestly, my days have been screwed up because of the snow days. I didn’t realize it was almost Fabric Friday till about 10 o’clock last night.  I’m seriouly unprepared!

Instead of leaving you hanging, I thought I would just show you some of the fabrics I can’t seem to stop thinking about.

Up 1st is Knitty Gritty from Michael Miller. I love this with the scissors under the skulls. The other piece to this line has knitting needles crossed behind the skulls.

It comes in lavender too. I can see a cute wallet or a coffee cup cozy out of this.

A novelty print from Michael Miller that I saw recently made into a bag.

I don’t know how old this Halloween fabric is. I think it’s Maywood Studios. I know Paige will like this one.

You didn’t think I’d leave out Christmas did you?

Here’s a peek at the new Kate Spain’s line Flurry.

And the Basic Grey line Jovial, which I’m just counting the days for. Although I kinda wished they had named it a Christmas treat like the last two, Fruitcake & Figgy Pudding. Those names were so much fun.

Have a great SuperBowl weekend everyone!

And Happy Birthday Mom!!
