Christmas Mini and Fabric Tuesday #212

Welcome to Fabric Tuesday! Today I have a mini quilt I've been working on for the last few weeks or so:

These stars are from Celestial Pattern by Alison Glass.  Using the stars in the pattern I came up with a festive mini!  I plan to hang it next to my tree.  Originally I was thinking of a pillow but I changed the design halfway through :)

The fabrics are Alison Glass' from her Christmas Bundle.

There are a few different stars to use in the pattern.  They're paper-pieced (don't be scared! Fun and easy!).  You can either make the pattern or use the stars in lots of other fun ways!

There will be a link-up and giveaway on the Alison Glass blog.  You will have until December 10 to share a completed project using Celestial for a chance to win a signed copy of Alison Glass' book and a $25 gift certificate to her shop. And, during the gift along, the Celestial pattern is $1 off and includes free shipping. 

In addition, we'll have folks share their progress on Instagram using #celestialgiftalong where we'll be picking one winner each week for a pattern of their choice. Wahoo!  So grab the pattern, I'd love to see what you make with it!

Fabric Tuesday!

Your turn to share!! Link up a recent project using FABRIC!

Whimsy Houses 2

Hello Friends!  I thought I'd share some of my latest creations that I'm selling on our @inkandbobbin account (on Instagram).

I made my first house pillow for Lucy's first birthday.  She was so in love with it I decided to make a couple different versions for sale.

I have mini pillows that feature a door that opens and closes with cute little fussy cut scenes.

Each house had different fabrics and details.  No two are the same!

Then I offer a larger size.  These pillows have a door and two windows, also with little fussy cut scenes behind each opening.

Lots of little details make these super sweet and fun to make!  I love trying new ideas!

If you or someone you know may like one of my pillows follow our @inkandbobbin account on Instagram for the next sale!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!!

Gigi's Thimble, Vintage Vibe blog tour...

Our friend Amber from Gigi's Thimble wrote a book!!! It's called Vintage Vibe. We are lucky enough to be part of the blog tour. I took this from Amber's site, but make sure to follow along. Schedule at the bottom of the post. Lots of fun people creating lots of cute items from her book. Congrats Amber!!

Well, it's about that time folks.
My new book, VINTAGE VIBE is shipping to stores any day now!  
So, let's have some fun, shall we? 
It's time for a VINTAGE VIBE Blog Tour!!!

Amber's first project in the book is called Skipper.  

Here she did some cute girl version blocks. Love!

I've been dying to see what this pattern would look like made up in some girly fabrics from my stash.  And well, I think it works.  Don't you?

I started making these the other day and I didn't want to stop!  My little pile of Skipper Blocks kept growing and growing!  Now, I'm just trying to decide if I need to make a whole other quilt...or just a table runner?  Hmmm.  Decisions, decisions...

Here's the schedule:
