Summer Lovin'


It's time for another reveal of some of my secret sewing! One of my favorite new fabric lines is Terrain by Kate Spain. It's just an amazing combination of color and pattern--and I have tons of ideas for projects to use it in.  Recently I was asked to make a sample for FatQuarterShop; since I didn't know what pattern or fabric I'd be using it was pretty exciting opening the box.  I couldn't believe it when I saw this fabric and this pattern and this ruler!

Julie's "Hugs & Kisses pattern" was fast and easy to make, and I loved working with the Lazy Angle Ruler.

FatQuarterShop will have kits available for this pattern here.


And...some of you have noticed this...


I was super excited to get to put these fabrics together...can't wait to share what I'm making with this...more later!
