Mom's love the catcher style bib with a pocket on the front to catch all sorts of spills! Little baby fingers like it too:)

from the SewCanShe blog...
A couple months ago Caroline Hulse of SewCaroline invited me to her blog hop and sent me this darling bundle of her new fabrics... aren't they the sweetest?
But first I have to tell how I met Caroline... I have been following her blog for a couple years now. She has an amazing sense of style and color, and I have featured a bunch of her tutorials here on SewCanShe.
So anyway, at Quilt Market last October I found myself standing near the entrance trying to decide where to go next (there's so much to do there!), when I saw Caroline walking toward me...
Don't you just love Christmas in July? I get to start thinking about my favorite holiday again... feelin' the love and warmth... and anything I make makes me look super organized and in control of my schedule, lol! This month my friend at Blend Fabrics sent me two bundles of beautiful Christmas fabrics so I decided to make some sweet tea towels with a traditional 'Partridge in a Pear Tree' theme.
This is selfish sewing at it's best: a swimsuit! I don't know if I've mentioned it on the blog yet... my hubby and I are getting ready to go on a cruise! I'm super excited to get away for little one-on-one vacation and even though I'm pretty sure I already have everything I need, I've been eyeing this pattern for a while, wanting to try it.
Okay, her name's not Swoodson, it's Stephanie, but I think her blog name (a mash-up of her real name) Swoodson Says is so cute that I had to put it in the title to this post. And check out that adorable top she made! I totally have to make myself one. I love cross-over tops and dresses.
The other day I wanted to send my sister a picture of a quilt that I had been working on, and I accidentally emailed her the wrong picture...
Have you seen those totally adorable quilted projects that people are making? I don't know about you, but I'm seeing zipper pouches, wallets, pillows, purses, and you-name-it all over the web and in my instagram feed that are made with QAYG (quilt as you go) fabric.
Welcome to our Show Off Saturday Linky Party! This week I decided not to show off something I've made, but something my sister Beka made instead. Isn't this bag the cutest? My boys are CRAZY about legos right now. Lego Movie Legos, Chima legos, Ninjago, whatever. So when Beka sent my son Connor this personalized Green Ninja messenger bag, he was over the top happy. In case you're not familiar with the story, this funny applique is the Lloyd character from Lego Ninjago.
Our last Show Off Saturday Linky Party had some amazing shares! There were lots of beautiful finishes and some great tutorials and this amazing tote bag by Marilyn of Shades of Bold got the most clicks.
Color is everywhere. I'll bet you have a stash of gorgeous and colorful fabrics. Do you ever get frustrated trying to put them together for quilts or other projects?
I'm so excited to show you the classic quilt blocks that I've been working on for July. As soon as Blend sent me this fabric, I knew that I would make the sailboat quilt block. Isn't it perfect?
In case you are catching this blog series for the first time, we're spending a year making gorgeous quilt blocks using the classic patterns and fresh modern fabrics from Anna Griffin and Blend Fabrics! So far we've made the Dutchman's Puzzle Block, the Churn Dash Block, the Friendship Star, and the Snowball and Nine Patch blocks together!
Yes, you won't believe what I'm showing off today because I can hardly believe it either. Duct tape! (pretty white duct tape because that's the color I bought)
Okay, let me go back and tell the story...
This week the most-clicked picture from our last Show Off Saturday Linky Party was Sarah's fabulous tank top that she made for herself. I really like that because it just so happened that I shared a selfish sewing project in that blog post too. :)
