Geranium Dress with Flora and Fawn

I sewed another dress for my little one! She loves flowers and pink so it is perfect! Plus this fabric has me all heart eyes!

I love the sweet floral print from Amanda Herring's Flora and Fawn collection mixed with Riley Blake Gingham! Mixing prints for clothing is one of my favorites to do.  I also used my favorite Geranium Dress Pattern with Expansion Pack by Made by Rae- it is my "go to" dress pattern. 

My little one loves to help me sew. She even picked out the cutest flower buttons for the dress back, she was disappointed that I didn't sew them to the dress front ;).

3. Geranium Dress Pattern with Expansion Pack

I finished the dress just in time for Easter! We both love it ;) 

I sure love being on Amanda Herring's Creative Team! Her fabric is my style and I love it so much! I  received my fabric for her new Hello Lovely Collection and it is AMAZING! I wonder if I can request a bolt of each print???  I'm so excited to start sewing up my project for the Hello Lovely Blog Tour with Amanda and Riley Blake Designs!!!!

Have a great day!!!

Clementine Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics - Month 4

Welcome to Month Four of the Clementine Quilt Along Fundraiser with Fat Quarter Shop! I love that Fat Quarter Shop and Moda Fabrics have partnered together to match donations up $20,000 to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!
My fabrics
I choose my favorite Bonnie & Camille Aqua Fabrics to make my Clementine Quilt monochromatic. I am loving monochromatic projects right now!

Making the Blocks:

I chose to cut my A and D squares to 2.5" (small block) and 3.5" (large block). This allowed me to trim my half square triangles to size. I love my Bloc-loc ruler for this!

Year of the Fat Quarter with Fat Quarter Shop plus a GIVEAWAY

 Happy April! Have you heard Fat Quarter Shop has named 2018- The Year of the Fat Quarter. I LOVE it! April is all about GRAY and I just love this neutral bundle! This is one of my most favorite fabric bundles!

I love the new Riverside Pattern by It's Sew Emma Patterns and knew it would be perfect for this bundle! The pattern shows off each fabric so well and I love the modern look! 

Supplies to make your own Riverside Quilt (lap size) 56: x 73"

4. Flora and Fawn - 1 yard (extra fat quarter and binding)

I really loved sewing this quilt! I followed the Riverside pattern and trimmed each block to size- which did take a bit of time...but worth it! A little "how to " video by FQS.

For the binding- I chose to use Flora and Fawn Weave fabric, which I love!
