Grab a spoon & let’s have some sherbert. Some Lemon, lime & orange sherbert. Ok, it’s really melon, but that’s what I think of when I look at these fabrics so I’m going with it:)

This stack was $33.01, now $28.06 at Etsy & SewModDesigns.

Want a second helping? I went through my fave’s on Etsy and scooped these out. Lemon, Lime and Orange sweetness.

Have a great & warm weekend everyone!

We pulled together some more fabric bundles to start the week off. After all, what’s better than beginning our week looking a beautiful fabrics!

Paige’s pick includes some Oval Elements, Honey Child, Taza, and Bespoken.

Lorrie’s pick…

I love the warm colors in this bunch that includes Oval Elements, Heirloom, Pick*A*Bunch, Midnight Garden & Bespoken.

As always, SewMod Stacks will be available as 1/2 yard bundles in the Etsy Shop & for 15% off the regular bundle prices.

A quilt I worked on during our SewMod sewing day was this quilt called Taza Baby. I cut all my Taza scraps into 4″ squares and sewed them together. The Kona Ash gray arrived in the store last week and was the perfect addition to calm this quilt and allow your eyes to rest.

Get your scraps out and use them, play with them. This quilt was on my design wall for a about a week before I finally realized it needed the gray. I knew it was missing something. I’m glad I didn’t give up. It turned out great! Paige did an all-over playful loop with the quilting. It doesn’t need anything more than that and this quilting can easily be done on your machine as well.

I even used the rest of the scraps on the backing.

Now, all baby has to do is pick which side she likes best!

Only a couple more pics from the booth to go.

Another one of our good friends took on the sample of Madeline.

She did a great job of picking the fabrics out for this to be oh, so girly. But, I already knew she would. She has a great eye for those things. The background is Art gallery’s Oval Elements in Petal Pink. The dress is out of the Taza fabric line.

The quilt can be made into a wall hanging or framed without it’s border. I think it’s adorable framed! It reminds me of  pink bubblegum.

We found the pattern for these awesome needle cases over at SewPrimKhris’s blog and our friend Kelly whipped them up for us. They came out sooo cute. Just some scraps, felt, Velcro and a button. Great gifts for all your sewing friends. Each segment in the needle case could even be labeled for each needle size. I’m always getting mine mixed up.

Last is the Hoo Blankie. It has a Minkie backing for the cuddly, snuggle factor and a yard of fabric for the front. Easy, breezy blankie and it comes with a free pattern.

Taza, by Dena Designs, arrived a couple of days ago. It has a shabby chic, fresh feeling to it. I also can see a really pretty, modern baby room designed around this.

And I just couldn’t resist adding the Kaffe Polka dot to the collection. It’s perfect! This yellow Ribbon Damask is one of my fave’s from the line.

And this one catches my eye too.

My mom loved the stripe. I’m tellin’ ya, I totally see a baby girl here!

And speaking of my mom, look at the adorable crocheted flowers she made for an owl kit we’re working on. Won’t these be cute as little owl hair accessories! Thanks mom:)

And another thing, if I had to rely on my gardening skills to survive, I’m afraid I would starve to death! I planted tomatoes at the beginning of summer and I swear the plant only grew to about 18″ tall and produced the saddest little tomato I’ve seen.

My neighbor said it looked like a giant strawberry…ouch. Thank goodness there is always a back-up plan…the local farmer’s market:)

Our first official order..from a human, not a computer! It was exhilarating, exciting, scary and hopefully one day will be just another day at the office.

The Rep from Westminster/Free Spirit was at the house yesterday. With the rep, you get to touch the fabric, see the samples. The computer just doesn’t do the actual colors justice.We did have to pick some of the newer releases from the printed swatches because they hadn’t made it to the states yet. Which is why it’s so important to be at market.They have all the fabric samples there.

Now, I’m a planner. I was prepared for this meeting.

Printout out the products we were interested in..check.  Ballpark range of the money we were going to spend…check. Ok, I can hear you snickering now.

You definitely get caught up in the moment. So you wanna see what we got a little caught up with?

We also ordered Kaffe fat quarter sets. And I promise not to bore you with every meeting we have with the Reps:) But I just couldn’t help myself. I had to share our newest fabric adventure. We should also promise our Rep. that we’ll be more decisive next time. There might have been a little too much…”I don’t know, do you like that, do we need that, should we?”

Paige is going to be at a retreat this weekend. Check back on Monday to see what she’s been up to.

Thanks for hanging with us this week and have a great weekend everyone!
