Hushabye - A Finish (Finally!!)

Every time I finish up a quilt made from one of my long hoarded/much loved fabric collections I think the same thing... This fabric is so much better as a quilt than as a bundle on my shelf!

Hushabye

Hushabye is no exception! The colors, the bunnies, the owls... they come together to make the sweetest quilt!

Smitten Kitten

Have you ever stumbled upon some long sought-after fabric?  It's happened to me a couple of times... and it's like Christmas and my birthday all rolled together.

So when I saw Ella mention a Link Up for a Favorite Fabric Swap, I had to check it out.  I like to think I have a well-stocked stash, but there's always going to be something more... something impossible... something out of reach.  But maybe that fabric I hunt for on eBay in the middle of the night is sitting in someone's stash right this very minute.

Are you curious what's at the top of my fabric wish list?  Smitten Kitten by Alexander Henry.

What's on your fabric wish list?  Hop on over to Making Rebecca Lynne and check out what other fabric-obsessed folks are on the hunt for.

Cat in the Hat Jane Market Bag

I've made a few Jane Market bags over the years, but this by far is my favorite!

Dr. Seuss Jane Market Bag

I made it as a birthday gift for Megan's kindergarten teacher. I figured a teacher could always use another tote bag... and what a perfect use for my stashed Dr. Seuss fabrics!

Dr. Seuss Jane Market Bag

Her teacher loved it! I think next time I'll make her something from my stashed Little Golden Book fabrics - maybe the Saggy Baggy Elephant.
