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.

Happy Friday the 13th!

I thought today would be a good day to not go anywhere for fear of something terrible happening to me. In stead, I finished up FOUR car seat blankets. That's right. FOUR. Enjoy!
Sarah Jane's line of fabric kills me. LOVE her style so very much. Keep it coming, Sarah Jane! 

There was a lady who came into The Quilting Cottage the other day and was making a Little Man Tie Quilt out of this same fabric. I'm dying to see how it turned out. So fun!

Surfer Baby

My cousin, Amy, moved to Kauai, Hawaii a couple years ago. She asked me to make a surfer themed car seat blanket for her good friend there. What do you think, surf-y enough? I'm in love!

Navy Jacks

This line of fabric is called Reunion. (Don't worry, I don't get it, either.) Nonetheless, I love it, and it's perfect for little boys! Add some rich red minky dot on the back, and you have the perfect combination to keep your little man snuggl-y and warm.

Alphabet Soup

We did a similar car seat blanket in the white version a while ago, and I found the blue background at work the other day and had to pick some up to make another car seat blanket.

Scoot Scoot!

Riley Blake's line "Scoot" is so darling! So happy to work with their fabric again.

Kumari Garden

I've been in love with this fabric for a long time. I finally bought some and made a car seat blanket with the butterflies version from the Kumari Garden line. So darling! Visit The Butterfly Net to purchase it today!

Well, Hello There, Cupcake!

I've been timid about buying "food-y" themed fabric for car seat blankets, but with fabric this bold and colorful, I had to give it a shot. It's from Blank Quilting. Their line "Bake Shop" is delectable! Visit The Butterfly Net to purchase a car seat blanket today!

Flowers for the Giraffes

I went into work the other day to find about five new lines of fabric. What?! Of course I had to make some new car seat blankets (canopies) for the shop. Take a look around and have fun.

The Warmest Canopy. Ever.

I found this flannel and had to buy it. With minky, of course. The result is seriously the warmest car seat blanket you can buy. Buy it in our shop!

Gray is the New Black

Who knew that gray would come back into style - and with a vengeance? Remember when people used to paint their houses gray and white in the early 1990's? We're doing it again. And I'm buying as much gray material as possible apparently. I made these three canopies for our shop and then realized they're all gray. Plus, there's one more I made for the display/sample for the darling quilt shop I work at. You see, they're kind enough to carry our patterns (which you can also buy in our shop), and they fly off the shelves if there's a sample of the perfect design sitting next to the patterns.

Secretly, this canopy makes me want to go back to Hawaii and golf at Kapalua Bay. Anyone else?
p.s. No snickering about my nasty grass. It's January 4th here in Utah, and there's no snow. Totally gross.
