Today’s mix it up Monday is just a simple but sweet bundle from Sew Simple Fabrics.  A multi-colored print provides the base from which the green dots, yellow pathways, and red cherries are coordinated.  This selection would be perfect for a small project, a few throw pillows, or even a simple, modern quilt.

quilting tutorials

 

I love that this quilting tutorial from Riley Blake’s Cutting Corners uses the collection Vintage Verona by Emily Taylor.  This collection has been one of my favorites.  It is sophisticated and the colors are so nice and deep they are almost neutrals.  Of course, you can use whatever collection or combination of collection that you love.  This photo even makes me want a ladder on which I can display quilts!

tutorial tuesday

 

I’ve always been able to make lounge/pajama pants for my son, but I never considered making him a few pairs of shorts while I was at it.  I wonder if I could do a good enough job for them to hold up through the wear and tear he puts his clothes through.  He has a few shirts that I love but are such a specific color blue that I find it hard to match them with anything other than khaki, and let’s face it, a little boy needs those khaki shorts to be for good occasions only!  I don’t have the will to pre-treat  the grass and dirt stains he collects so well through the course of play!  Here’s few cute tutorials that depending on your fabric choices could easily be adapted for girls or boys (unless of course they have pretty little ties and ruffles!)
