We have some beautiful collections in the shop! It’s always fun to see the fabric used to create something useful, pretty, creative, exciting, stunning…


Red Letter Day Quilt by Cherri, Cherry House Quilts

Cherri created this quilt with Red Letter Day fabric for Fons and Porter magazine. Cherri has a special appreciation for the Red Letter Day collection because her daughter designed the fabric!


Sewing Machine Cover by Stephanie, Creative Reveries

Stephanie used Wonderland by MoMo to create her sewing machine cozy. Now she can look at the fabric she loves all the time! Stephanie writes about how she made the cover on her Creative Reveries blog.


Baby Blocks by Lesley, smidgebox

Lesley used a variety of fabrics to create these “girlie but not pink” commissioned cloth blocks. The blocks feature fabric from the Mendocino and Bijoux collections (plus more!).


Jean, S. Oscar

Jean used My Folklore from Lecien and the Sew Liberated Emmeline Apron pattern for this beautiful gift.

Jen used a great selection of fabrics in her basket, including fabrics from Amy Butler, Valori Wells and the Alexander Henry designers. Jen used a tutorial for the basket (details via Flickr).


Spring Ruffle Dress by CeCe, CeCe H.

CeCe used Good Folks and Midwest Modern for this lovely Spring Ruffle Dress adaptation of the Spring Ruffle Top tutorial.


Dance with Me Clutch by Staci, Staci’s Notebook

Staci loves working with purse frames! She used Dance with Me from Jennifer Paganelli for this clutch.


French Hatbox Quilt by Jamie, Sweet Baby Jamie
