Just in time for the Superbowl!

When our super snuggly and soft flannel basics arrived, I knew I wanted to create something with them, but was a little hesitant on doing a larger project as I have never worked with flannel before. I wanted a simpler project that would give me the experience that I needed, but also a finished product. The perfect solution for this was the Rookie Quarterback Baby Quilt by the Robinson Pattern Company. While I'm not a huge football fan, I know plenty of people who are so this will make a great gift when the time comes.

Fly With Me Baby Quilt Kit

My stash of kid’s quilts expanded once again when I saw Kristin’s fun design and had to sew it up.  I love how the lightning bolts from our adorable Soaked collection frame the quilt, adding some drama to the scene, while the airplanes are safely circling around through the rain clouds.

Reversible Sundress in Matsuri Lawn

My 2-Hour Apron in Hello Sunshine

If there's one thing that I love, it's a really cute apron. For years now, I have been sewing aprons of all shapes and sizes for friends and family. As fate would have it, the same day that we got to select our Gifty Galore projects, I found out that a good friend of mine bought a new house. What better housewarming present than an apron that matches her new kitchen?
