For the Love of Purple

I went into the local quilt shop and found this fabric and fell in love. It's now a car seat blanket for sale in the shop. You're welcome.

No More Monkeys - I Mean Minkies

Is it cold where you are living? My kids and I were so excited that the temperature was above freezing that we went outside to play this afternoon. Don't worry, it was only 38 degrees. What?! We're just a tad anxious to have spring here. My hyacinth are popping out of my frozen and snow-covered garden areas. Brr!

Speaking of the snow-covered ground, the dead grass makes for very poor pictures. I can't decide which is worse - the dead grass or my blah carpet in the front room. Today I chose the carpet. Meh.

Our minky car seat blankets are always a quick sale. We stock up, but then they're gone quickly. Especially in these winter months in northern Utah. Check out our Etsy shop, The Butterfly Net, to peruse these and other delightful finds!

Out to Sea

We admittedly love all things Sarah Jane. Especially her fabric lines. We love that she is nostalgic about her art work, and gives it to us to play with. Thank you, Sarah Jane!

I may or may not have covered the basket liners and canvas paintings in my toy room with this same fabric.

Love love love this line of fabric. My favorite part? The bias stripes. Eek! Can't get enough.

Bohemian Festival

Well, it doesn't get much more vibrant than this. My last post was all about the calm and muted tones. This one is not. At all. It's gorgeous! There's a pink back and a green back. Perfect for twin girls!! Just sayin'.

I'm not so sure about the name of the line "Willow," but I do so love the line of fabric. I don't often see muted tones anymore, and it's quite sweet and calming in the vibrant world we live in. (I wonder if that's what babies think? Hmm . . .)

Mini Chevrons

I found three mini chevrons at the fabric store the other day and paired them with some colors to pop. Quite fun! Plus, the first one is just so cozy with the minky on the inside. Visit our store to purchase any of these.

Pretty Little Things

There were only a couple of girl canopies until recently. Nicole and I took care of that. Three more girly ones! You're welcome.

Modern Family

It seems as though when we put anything modern in the shop, it flies out. Apparently families (and moms in particular) are going for the modern flair. Here are three more for the taking!

Painted Mums

Who doesn't love Heather Bailey fabric!  This big print is perfect for a girly car seat cover.  And the minky is soft and light - it won't be too heavy on the car seat.

A Love for Verona

Riley Blake Verona arrived in The Quilting Cottage about a month ago, and every time I go into work (ok, fine, play) I buy more of it. They are perfect for car seat blankets. Riley Blake, you have done it again! Visit our web site, The Butterfly Net to view or purchase these blankets.

Catching Up

I'm not a slacker!  I'm doing the work!  (I'm quoting "What About Bob?"  Just so no one thinks I'm actually crazy.)  I just noticed the thread in the top left corner of this photo.  Woops!  Love this fabric - it's called "Flea Market Fancy" and it really is.  Fancy, without actually being from the flea market.
There is lime green minky on the inside of this one.  And cute owls on the outside.
Another minky one!  This is for a sophisticated baby girl, I think.

Chevrons on the Side

What?! I cut the fabric sideways! Bah. I'm so bugged. Secretly, it doesn't bother  me too much to have the Chevron rows going vertically. What do you think?

Half Moon Modern

Loved this whole line. I've done FOUR car seat blankets from this line. Here are two of them. Ripe for the picking in our Etsy shop, The Butterfly Net.
