Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

"Give Thanks" panel quilt ~ (see TUTORIAL)
fabric by Sandy Gervais for Riley Blake Designs.

Feeling so grateful for blessings - family, friends, and opportunities every day to learn and improve, to create and share.  Also, super-glad to be able to reconvene with this amazing group of talented people, and thought I'd share that here.  So happy to be singing again, could not help the cheesy smile.

Gnomes in Love ~ RBD Project Tour

Oh, my goodness, Gnomies!  Gnomes in Love is a new line of fabric by Tara Reed for Riley Blake Designs, getting a jump on Valentine's Day, or any time you need a little joy and love in your life!

I already have a love affair with Tara Reed's Gnomies, as I played with her Gnome for Christmas flannel earlier this year.  Soooo cute! 

The main print above sports sweet messages, like little Valentines.  So fun and cheerful!  This is my backing, which makes it a reversible topper!  I used Hearts and Dots plus a couple of RBD Basics

Primrose Hill ~ Isabella's Bonnets

"Isabella's Bonnets" wall hanging
featuring Primrose Hill  by Melanie Collett of HelloMelly Designs for Riley Blake Designs

I am so excited to "Sew & Tell" this quilt on today's project tour for Riley Blake Designs!  It is the pretty fabric itself that inspires the design: Vintage-style prints with a big, bold design for the border, background fabric that appears wallpaper-ish, and elements in the fabrics that lend themselves to things that might hang on an old-fashioned hat stand.

Barn Quilt ~ A Soldier's Star

"A Soldier's Star", king-size quilt 
featuring Barn Quilts line of fabric by Tara Reed for Riley Blake Designs

Look, it's a Barn Quilt!  This one will be for my bed though, not for a barn!  Love the rich colors of these fabrics so much that I used three of the same prints to make my big barn star quilt.  Haha, I love the fact that I've just made a Barn Quilt quilt using Barn Quilts fabric!
