We’re being invaded…by cute animals taking a ride above the neighborhood in planes, saucers, and balloons! Seeing Stars is back in stock and kitted in a Riley Blake design called ‘Little Flyers’. The fabrics are perfect for this pattern. Just like the fabric says…it’s awesome!

Machine appliqued planes soar through this quilt among half square triangle (HST) stars. The smoke trails are hand embroidered in different colors using a straight stitch to add that special touch to the baby quilt.

I’ve had this pattern, Posh Tot by Blue Underground, for awhile. I even sell it in the shop but I’ve never gotten around to making it till now.

Only three different fabrics are needed for this quilt. I used a Kona pink, Riley Blake’s ‘Girl Crazy’ line and a pop of color in the square centers to make this modern baby quilt.

I did choose to make the binding from the ‘Girl Crazy’ stripe to make it a bit more interesting.

I love it when my projects can be completed within the day…at least my quilt tops that is. The directions are so easy, I barely had to give them a second glance. I would have been able to finish it all in one day, but I was going to leave the quilting magic up to Paige this time. The pattern comes with different sizes so I bet once you see how easy & fast Posh Tot is, you’ll wanna make more! Maybe even one for yourself:)

Posh Tot can be easily quilted in straight lines, a wavy serpentine stitch, or an all-over.

The kit comes complete with the Blue Underground pattern, quilt top, binding and backing. Batting NOT included.

My sample was made using the stripe and a solid but the kits are also available using the Girl Crazy main fabric in pink or white as the backing. Your choice!

The finished quilt measures 39″x49″ and the KITS are available in the SewModDesigns Etsy shop for $42.00 plus shipping.

So, get all Girl Crazy and make a special little girl a Posh Tot!

Take a Fancy Free bike ride and smell all the pretty flowers along the way.

Fancy free baby kits

I used one of our easiest patterns, ‘Baby Me Blankie’, to make this baby girl quilt. Simple cutting and strip piecing help this baby assemble fast! Wanna know how long it takes me to make one of these? 40 minutes. Yep. You heard me right…40 minutes! So, if I factor in cut time, I’ve made this quilt top in less than an hour.

The quilting on ‘Baby Me Blankie’ is simple enough to do yourself. Heck, I even did it! All you need to do is properly pin the layers and stitch a 1/4″ along each side of the strips seam allowances. Wanna know how long it took me? About 45 minutes!

I’ve made a resolution this year to hand make at least one shop sample a month. This can work out one of two ways…I’ll either be super prepared for quilt shows or I’ll be all sold out…either way it’s a win, right?!

January’s hand made cuteness is a baby quilt made from the Riley Blake line called “In The Ocean“. Schools of fishes,  seahorses , smiling jellyfish, and mulit-colored bubbles will make baby’s room bright and playful.

In The Ocean baby quilt

I used the panel fabric for the center. It features all the main characters for the quilt and framed it with a border and a flange in a Kona red called Lipstick.

Multi bubbles are on the backing, and it’s bound in the red. I quilted it with a wavy stitch…wavy, like the ocean

If this quilt kit actually makes it to the shows, It will be sold with the sand pail, but as for now, that’s just a shop would be kinda hard to get that pail to the customers with cost effective shipping! Kit price is $40. That includes everything to make it, including top fabrics, binding, backing, pattern and is available in the SewModDesigns shop. If you’re looking for something simple, this one’s for you. I used one day to make it and one day to quilt it!

In The Ocean quilt

This kit makes a perfect snuggle blankie for baby. Use it to throw on the floor for playtime or decor for the nursery. It’s small enough to take with you for a stroller blanket or use with the carrier. Have a baby shower to attend? Bring handmade!

Or if you’re interested in purchasing the handmade quilt, it can be found in the SewModMakes shop!
