The first is this stunning Insignia Quilt from Sarah at Bluprint Textiles. It simply makes me swoon. I really love the range of fabric she paired with the Olive fabrics. The yellow gives a little extra sass to balance out the sweetness of the Olive prints. And you know I love a little sass!
I've always been a bit perplexed by how to get my points to look neat and tidy when working with triangles and Sarah's explanation finally got the light to go on for me. And I'll definitely be picking up one of those Tri-tool templates soon. Thank you Sarah!!
For giveaway #1 (a FQ set of Olive the Ostrich fabric), scoot over to Sarah's blog before Monday, September 3 to put your name into the hat in order to be able to win.
And the second project is from Sara at Sew Sweetness, who seems to be able to create a never ending stream of simply adorable bags and other goodies. I spied this Frou Frou bag Sara made using Tufted Tweets and just fell in love with her patterns. And I just stumbled across her pattern for a chair cushion that I must make.
And now she's created this Pixie Wallet. I know! So cute, right?! Sara has written a great tutorial for her hexie wallet and its available here on her blog. I can't wait to try it out myself.
And for giveaway #2 for a FQ set of Olive the Ostrich, head over to say hello to Sara before Friday August 31st at 7pm CT.
And if you aren't one of the winners of the FQ sets, don't fret. Olive the Ostrich will start shipping in November 2012, so you'll be able to get some on your sewing table before you know it :)
Everyone have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back early next week to share NEW fabric that will be available in my Etsy store. Some brand new animal prints and a pair of kitchen inspired prints that I am super excited about. Can't wait to get the pictures snapped and get everything listed in the store. Yay fabric!
