If you are looking for some basic prints to work into your Christmas sewing this year, then look no further than this great coordinated bundle from Cuts of Cotton.  Traditional Christmas colors of wintery green and berry red are combined shiny metallic gold.  These prints remind me of a Christmas tree just looking at the stack!

Fat Quarter Shop has a wonderful and fast growing YouTube channel that if you haven’t checked out, you should hop on over.  There are lots of great tutorials and demonstrations which are great for those of us who need visual instructions.  Especially those of us with little quilting experience under our belts.

Kimberly Jolly has a great questions and answers video that I found quite informative and interesting.  Some of the quilting tips can be applied to sewing in general.  So sit back and listen to some of your burning quilting and sewing questions answered by a professional!

tutorial tuesday

A few weeks ago I promised to share my fabric pumpkins when I was able to load photos again. (I still do not know why those photos wouldn’t load!)

Using the tutorial I found at Craft Buds to whip up some of the easiest, minimal sewing (and I mean minimal…like hardly at all!) pretty little pumpkins.

Here is the photo from Craft Buds:

And here are my little guys.  I didn’t have any raffia on hand so I skipped that.  And I did already have the precut felt leaves, so I used them (even if they aren’t authentic pumpkin shaped)

These I made with some scraps I had left over from Sandi Henderson

And these were made from the Vintage Happy collection from Riley Blake

There are lots of pretty patchwork pumpkins and all sorts that take a lot more work than these, but if you’d like something simple, I highly recommend giving them a try!
