What happens when the
Line It Up Tote meets Liberty lawn fabric? Perfection.
I made the panel go from light to dark in value with some tiny Liberty scraps. No piece of Liberty is too small to be treasured and saved. The grey is Robert Kaufman Essex yarn dyed. It plays well with the colors of Liberty.
This tote has piping so I used a dark piece on the dark edge.
And light for the light edge.
For the lining (and piping), I used some faux-berty. Robert Kaufman’s London Calling and Moda’s Regent Street are both lovely lawns that play well with Liberty lawn. Plus I actually remembered to put in a label.
This little tote is for my friend Pam! I hope it will go on many great adventures with her.

This week is very purple. Purple is not a go to color for me and REALLY wanted to add something more than som blue purples and periwinkles. I resisted.
Can you say ladybug love?! Try saying that five times fast!
Today’s pallete is bit of a challenge for me. These aren’t my usual colors; I usually go for purer colors. But I still think this is pretty.
These colors aren’t super prominent in my stash, but here it is! I kind of like it. This project was supposed to be a challenge to work outside my color comfort zone.
Modern Patchwork is one of my favorite publications! It’s always full of fun, fresh, well-made ideas. And I’m excited to be in the new issue!
My project is this sketchbook cover! It’s made with
Carolyn Friedlander mini charms.
This is a fun one to dig through your scrap bin for. I’m contemplating making another one with my coveted
The cover is hand stitched with oversized cross stitches. I used
Aurifil Aurifloss which is my fave floss. I’m pretty sure that citrine color is my favorite.
Inside the covers is more scrappy goodness with binding.
Modern Patchwork is available at your local new stands or you can pick it up digitally
here. Check it out!
It’s time for more fun with color!
Who knew how nicely periwinkle and teal played together?
This week is an eclectic mix. I’m currently obsessed with that royal blue/purple color.
Quite the eclectic mix of prints as well.
This makes me think of Summer and watermelons! Not exactly what’s happening outside my window;)
But what a yummy combo!
It’s another bright day in Color Stories world! My inner eight year old cheers for this palette.
What goes best with dots? Deer!
This one is a huge challenge as these colors do not exist in my stash!
This exercise is about working with what I have though, so I made it work! Thank goodness for Laurie Wisbrun who designed both the chair print in the giraffe print.
These are colors I tend to wear more then buy in fabric.
But once I pulled the pallete, I want to make a quilt!
