tilda’s happy campers

our happy campers yardage has arrived and it is every bit as summer-infused as we imagined it to be.

soft honey hued prints cozy in next to pink and rose, blue, eggnog, green and teal…luscious florals, gingdots, paisleys, and mosaic type prints remind me of summers spent in flower gardens, dreaming of a vintage camper decked with sweet little curtains while snacking on pink lemonade and orange creamsicle cake with vanilla ice cream.

unfortunately it is quite chilly outside for any porch sitting and flower gardening…however, i’m thinking an afternoon with some Happy Campers is sure to brighten my winter blues.

i’ve been kicking around some EPP/embroidery pillow ideas…right now though i’m focusing on the Pastel Primrose Garden i’ve been crazily working on…just 45 more flower to put on…hopefully i can be finished by the end of the week…then be sure to look for the pattern.

speaking of embroidery…with all the thread stories, collections, packs, tins, boxes, and such…i cannot find a pack of Tilda’s inspired threads. Tilda had a collection of thread basics 10 years ago…but nothing recent, so i pulled out a couple tins and set to work on putting together DMC perle cotton tins for both Old Rose and Happy Campers.

Old Rose-Inspired Tin…Here. Happy Campers-Inspired tin…Here.

as for Happy Campers…it has been tucked in with Old Rose and Angel Scraps…i’m thinking a move-around sometime in the near future…so it is a little more front and center.

i’m wrapping it up for the day…gabby is impatiently waiting for me to get going!

happy stitching!

amelia in sugarcreek

i’m heading out the door for an afternoon with Mel and Braxton and shopping and Panera (if you have’t heard…Bistro French Onion soup is back!)

thought i would pop in and wish everyone a happy February 1st! Can you believe january is already over and we are 1 month into 2020 already. Dad’s surgery went well yesterday and he is getting geared up for physical therapy starting on monday. thank goodness our barn doors are up!

***

our newest project in the shoppe is amelia. if you’ve been following along…this project was first introduced quite a few years ago. it has always been a favorite so when we saw Sugarcreek with all its modern/vintage feel we knew it would work.

i love the bright, punchy colors mixed with the white and grey…it really brings this quilt together.

i’ve gotten the kits ready to go so you can start grabbing those summer-vibes this february!

kits are here and are identical to ours…so you will get the same scraps-from-vintage-sheets-and-grandma’s-table-cloths feel as ours.

happy february!

finnegan again

just finished up cutting and bundling fat quarter and fat 8th bundles of the entire Finnegan collection. (we had all of them left shockingly enough…however, some are mighty skinny now!)

if you missed out on adding the Finnegan collection to YOUR collection…we have a very limited number of in-house cut fat quarter and fat 8th bundles.

finnegan fat 8th bundles
finnegan fat quarters

these are total Easter-can’t-wait-for-spring colors and go amazingly well with Amberley and Bramble Cottage…there is just something about that lavender and pink!

…mom finished up Cottage Charm but we’ll save that for another day…

nab Finnegan here.

happy friday!

bramble precuts

bramble cottage…which is FULL of pastel, Easter-egg toned florals, checks, dots, and more florals is out and the precuts have arrived….FINALLY!

We ordered in all the bramble precuts: fat quarters and fat eighths, layer cakes, charms, mini charms, and jelly rolls and honeybuns. lots of different sizes…all perfect for a sweet little table runner, an Easter bag, a quick spring throw to get you out of the winter slump, or if your tastes are more hand work oriented we have the jelly rolls available in a Jelly Garden kit complete with papers, background, and the pattern.

we have the full collection of prints on the bolt as well if you are looking to put together a large project or need a background, border, binding, or backing to go with your precut project.

grab your precuts and yardage here.

a feedsack farm girl

good morning! mom, gabby and i made it in to the shop today after our snow day yesterday.

i couldn’t resist taking some pretty pictures of our 30’s bundles. we’ve always had a soft spot for the cheerfully sweet 30’s prints…and so of course we couldn’t resist these bundles!

nothing brightens up a cold day like a summery bundle or 3…

Darlene’s Favorites by Darlene Zimmerman…40–fat 8ths
Tea Pot Garden by Darlene Zimmerman…22 fat quarters + the panel
Storytime 30’s by Penny Rose Studio…32 fat quarters

any of these would work as a great base for a Farm Girl Vintage 2 quilt.

farm girl vintage 2 by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet

hopefully these cheery prints have brightened a chilly day.

we’ll spend the weekend dreaming of sunshine, scarecrows, porch crocheting, cold calf noses, and flip flops…maybe even a porch kitten or 2.

feedsack bundles are available now…grab a bundle here…and don’t forget the book so you can bring a little farm to your home…here.

happy saturday!

bramble cottage

has arrived! It is quite lovely and perfect if you are itching for some little spring/summer colors! however, the winter wonderland-style snow this morning seems appropriate since yesterday i was placing Christmas orders for June…

Inspired by a dream of living in a countryside English cottage surrounded by unkept roses and meandering hills…this collection embodies that dream. Pretty flowers, classic plaids, clever dots and pluses…falling in love with it all over again.

precuts look to be shipping today and will be in-store early next week…i’ll get those listed over the next couple days so you can get your order in!

we have yardage of bramble cottage available now…here…and don’t you love how it looks with Finnegan and ALL THE GINGHAMS!

mom just finished piecing Cottage Charm using Finnegan. Cottage Charm is a large quilt that is perfect in soft pastel prints. Finnegan is a glorious older sister to Bramble Cottage. Soft airy prints, pretty Easter-Egg colors and truly delightful prints. Once it is quilted and washed i’ll do a blog post featuring it.

…i know we are about 5 collections behind but hopefully we can kick out a few new projects in the next few weeks…just in time to do a new rearrange for Easter and dad to have rotator cuff surgery…so mom will be home with him…hopefully all caught up and ready to set to work on the new collections that will be arriving.

in between all the piecing and machine quilting we are doing a little painting and trading in our old fence panels for a couple barn doors…all in good time…we have until surgery day to get that done…only about 16 more days!

time to start wrapping things up for the day…a few new bundles have arrived…yummy 30’s! i’ll work on getting those listed and maybe even a post about them this week.

happy tuesday!
