Friday Favorites 20

Friday, May 20, 2022


Happy Friday! It's time for another Friday Favorites post! Since this is my 20th post in this series, we're going to celebrate by doing something a little different! Instead of sending you all over the internet with links, I'm going to choose some favorites of mine from my archives. I hope you'll enjoy this trip down memory lane to some of my favorite posts and projects. (Blocks in progress shown above became this quilt.)

- This small quilt was a real turning point for me creatively. It was one of the first times I deviated from a quilt pattern's instructions and thought outside the box. It helped encourage me to write my own quilt patterns.

- I actually pulled up this baby quilt tutorial this week, to make one for a friend!

- I used to share a few recipes now and then, this one is probably the recipe I shared that I make the most often. At least once a year!


- One of my favorite scrap quilts I've made, which appears in the book Scraps, Inc*. I still love those colors.

- If I had to choose one product I'm happiest to carry in my shop it's these wooden beads. After years of using random beads from the thrift or big box store (nothing wrong with that!), I am so glad to be able to use and offer to you these high quality beads.

- One of my favorite and most popular informational series I've done here is my Art of Choosing Series. It's all about choosing fabrics through color and pattern for your projects.


- This scrappy drawstring bag is one of my all-time favorites, and I've made a lot of them! It's a project size, made from my pattern.

- A reader tagged me in their photo on Instagram recently, they made one of my quilted grocery bag holders. I still use mine!

- This purse and wallet duo I made got a ton of use the last few years. When I wanted to be able to shop hands-free and in a hurry!


- Last but certainly not least, my angel George bunny. It's impossible to look back through older posts and not see his little face pop up. I still miss him ever so much (although miss Dusty kitty does help!). He was such a sweet and gentle bun.

Have a Great Weekend!

Park Slope was such a great fabric line, wasn't it? I made my Single Girl out of Hope Valley and added three solid rings. And your scrappy drawstring bag is awesome!!

I've wanted to say something about Georgie because I actually miss him a lot and he wasn't even my little pet..and will always be favorite in each numbered category. However, Dusty is now showing a kitty personality.

Your drawstring bag pattern is a no-fail favorite!
I love seeing George again. Sweetness!

This is a fun post - you have been blogging or so long and it is great to revisit some earlier projects and tutorials! I remember years ago when I first started reading blogs, I won my first giveaway over on Diary of a Quilter. The prize was fat quarter bundle of your first fabric line. :-)

I will always love George bun💙 do you read the red dirt ramblings blog? I learn so much about gardening from Dee and enjoy her podcast. I haven’t used my sewing machine since last July as I’ve become a knitting addict in my free time. That hasn’t kept me from acquiring lots of fabric maybe this summer I will make a quilt.
