Project Design Team Wednesday ~ Woodland Tree Stump

07 Oct 2015

One of my favorite new fabric lines from Riley Blake Design is Woodland Spring by Dani of Designed by Dani. I fell in love with the deer print at first, then with the whole line. Just the right amount of sweetness without being too cutesy, that's what I love! As I was looking at the fabric, I had an image of a child sitting on a tree stump and reading somewhere in the woodlands (I know, sometimes my imagination runs wild and goes everywhere) ... so I decided to make a floor pillow for little kids by just using one ... more

TBT Modern: Pieced Star

01 Oct 2015


If you have been following along with Bonnie's Traditional Block Thursday tutorials, you will have mastered the half square triangle and flying geese techniques. In Bonnie's latest tutorial, the Pieced Star, she combines both techniques to make this beautiful star block. For my modern version of Bonnie's block, I opted to use Riley Blake Olive and Pale Green solids.  This was the most challenging block I have made so far. The individual pieces were easy to create, but lining up the points and seams required some patience. They didn't turn out absolutely perfect, but I'm ... more
