Basic Grey Origins

When I did more paper scrapbooking, Basic Grey was always my favorite paper. I love the distressed, worn in look that Basic Grey is famous for. Not too long ago I discovered that Basic Grey is now turning their designs into fabric. Wonderfully pretty, distressed fabric. I have not had the chance to actually try any of their fabrics yet, so I am not sure if I will love the distressed look in a quilt, but I recently picked this up.


It’s a layer cake of Basic Grey’s line, Orgins. I am not quite sure what I will be doing with it yet, but right now I am just petting it. I have never owned a layer cake before and it just looks so darn pretty!

Any suggestions for a layer cake friendly quilt pattern? I am thinking of one called ‘Ashcombe’, but not sure yet.

Happy Quilting!

I’m a Winner!

I usually enter quite a few blog giveaways, especially if they involve pretty fabrics. So far I have not been very lucky in becoming a winner of any of these. As you might guess by the title, I finally did win something! I not only won my very first giveaway about a month ago, but a week or two later I won my second, and then just yesterday I won my third. I am excited beyond words!

My first giveaway that I won was from Wendy of ‘Why Knot?‘. Look at the lovely, yumminess I won!


It is a Halloween charm pack, a Halloween panel, and a little yardage. If you weren’t already aware, I LOVE Halloween, so I think this fabric just knew it would find a good home with me. I don’t have any plans for this yet, but I cannot wait to dive in!

My second giveaway was won over at Stash Manicure. I won this stunning fat quarter pack from the Sweet Divinity Line by Riley Blake.


There was a bit of a mix up and there ended up being two winners announced for one prize, but Madame Samm was beyond sweet and had a chat with the giveaway sponsor, Riley Blake, and she decided to award the prize to both of us! Riley Blake only asked that I make a project with my winnings soon so she can use the picture for promotion. I think I can handle that.

I have never owned a fat quarter pack before, so before I cut into this one, I have been admiring it in all it’s packaged prettiness. I have an idea rolling around in my head for what I will make with this, and hopefully I will have something to show you soon!

My third giveaway was won at Crafty Musings. She was having a giveaway to celebrate her 501st post (I haven’t even come close to that!), and I entered on a whim and I was the big winner. The prize was a $25.00 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. I have a few things on my wish list, so I guess it’s time to go shopping.

So there you have it, I am a winner thrice over, and it’s not only my mom that says so!

Happy Quilting!

Dr. Seuss Fabric

There have not been very many fabrics that I am so excited about, but the new Robert Kaufman line featuring Dr. Seuss characters has totally and utterly caught my fancy. The fabric will not ship until September, but it is on pre-order at Here are a few designs:

I am not sure what kind of quilt I will make with this fabric yet, but I will probably make a lap quilt as that is my favorite size to make!

Happy Quilting!
