Friday Finish


Happy Friday!

These happy little flowers are new in my garden this year, and I just had to share them with you.  I love any daisy-type flower, so my garden (and my quilts, as you will see) are full of them!

I also wanted to tell you that my Seaside Cottage has finally arrived in stores!  I showed you this picture of the prints a few weeks back . . .

I’ve finally gotten a quilt done with the fabrics – Thanks to Mom (again) for getting the applique done and borders on (I got the blocks done the day before I went to the hospital to have Carter, thus the need for Mom’s help!)

Here’s a shot of those daisies that I mentioned earlier –

And a close up of a few more of the prints –

Today, I think my favorite print is the outer border –

As is tradition on my blog, I am giving away a fat quarter pack to one of my readers!  Just leave me a comment to be entered to win – maybe on what you are doing this weekend or something like that.

Hopefully you will find the fabric at your local shop.  If not, you can find a few kits, fat quarter packs , and some yardage on our retail website.

Have a great weekend and I will announce the winners of the fat quarter pack next week!

  1. I am in LOVE with your new fabric line! And I love your work! Beautiful quilt! Thank you for the opportunity to win your giveaway!

  2. Chris says:

    Our local quilt shop is getting your fabric in! Love this pattern–will it be offered soon?

    Weekend plans? None! Yay!!! 🙂

  3. Cosmos says:

    The new fabric is beautiful! This weekend I’m going to balance doing a few outside things when the heat permits and sewing indoors when it’s too hot. And maybe sneak in a trip to the pool 🙂

  4. kazkitty says:

    Love the pattern and the fabric!

    I currently have no plans for this weekend… except to get some sewing and knitting done. 😀

  5. Diane says:

    I love the fabric. And your flowers are so pretty too. Do you happen to know if they are deer resistant? I’m hoping to sew this weekend, and we’re going to see Wicked. I think we may be the only two people left on earth who haven’t seen it yet.

  6. Sandy A in St. Louis says:

    Such pretty fabrics! Love the aqua and red. This weekend I will be working on blocks for a BOM I do with one of my Yahoo groups as well as putting borders on a “galloping horse” quilt. 🙂

  7. Joyce says:

    Love this new collection. I’ve made several quilts from your patterns. Hope to see your line in our local quilt shop soon!

  8. Laurie in Iowa says:

    Love the quilt and your flowers are lovely too. I’ll be spending the weekend indoors, stitching, as it will be too hot and humid to be outdoors for too long.

  9. Julielorene says:

    The fabric is beautiful! Visited my brand new grandson today, going to see full size Thomas the Train with my other two grandsons tomorrow then off to a friend’s cottage on Sunday. Good times.

    • Sandy R says:

      I like your fabrics and your quilt turned out really nice. I am currently working on a log cabin quilt and the embroidered Latte quilt.

  10. scrapperdeb says:

    Tomorrow I’ll be standing in for my daughter at the local farmer’s market. She sells soap but will be away. It will be my first time trying to sell her wares, so i hope I don’t disappoint. Love the fabric!

  11. Shannon says:

    I will keep my eyes open for this fabric while on my travels this summer. The quilt is very lovely, but I must admit that I had hoped to see a little baby cuteness. My weekend will be all about gardening and hopefully a ltittle knitting and quilting.

  12. StampinKris says:

    Wow, I love the applique. Love all your designs. Finished up Spaghetti Junction on the 4th, and now working on Gypsy Girl for my daughter’s bed. Thanks for the chance to win your newest line.

  13. Kristen Sanderson says:

    This weekend I will be playing with my son and hopefully getting in a little sewing time while he is napping. Beautiful fabric, I love the colors!

  14. So pretty. I love the applique. And the quilting is perfect for the quilt. Thanx for the chance!

  15. Michelle M. Bailey says:

    Heather-I love your blog. Keep posting about Carter, too, even though you are afraid it will turn into a baby blog. We want more pictures! Thanks for the giveaway!

  16. Terri says:

    Love this line along with all the others!
    Left work early today, came home and pulled weeds. Hope the rest of the weekend is better 🙂

  17. Beautiful quilt Heather. Your fabric colors are perfect.
    This weekend we will attend our fourth family graduation party and spend some time on the lake. I’ll sneak in a little sewing for sure. Just finished a romper for a granddaughter’s first birthday party next weekend.

  18. Ellen Hammond says:

    Love the quilt and the fabrics! I am buying a new car this weekend 🙂

  19. Noela says:

    I love the fabric and the way you have designed the quilt with the applique flowers. It is winter here in Australia, the wind is blowing and so it is quite cool. Your quilt makes me think of summer. Thanks for the chance to win some of your fabrics.

  20. Terry says:

    Your flowers are beautiful! And so is your fabric! Thanks for the chance to win some! This weekend I plan to sew and then pull some weeds. At least the sewing part will be fun! :0)

  21. Lana says:

    Love this collection! This wkend, we’ll be picking up my son from his grandparent’s. He’s been there for the wk.

  22. kimland says:

    You have yet another beautiful line, thank you for the chance to win some! Staying cool in the pool this weekend.

  23. Sandra Davidson says:

    Heather I loved the pictures of Carter the other day ,he is so adorable, aren’t they cute when you can move them around like that in their sleep? Your new line is beautiful and I am with you in loving the border fabric on your quilt. I would love to win your giveaway! This weekend I am hoping to finish a baby quilt to send to my great niece. Blessings to you all

  24. stipplequilt says:

    Beautiful flowers and I just love your quilt! The applique your mom did is really neat! Thanks for a great giveaway, I love your fabrics!

  25. Marji says:

    I love how you repeated the flower pattern in your quilting and applique on this quilt. Is that a variety of blanket flower (gaillardia) in your garden?…….good choice to use on a quilt 🙂
    I am needing to finish some pillowcases for my oldest son’s two daughters–already made and gave a couple to his son earlier this month for his birthday and now it is their turn…..three birthdays within just over a months time…..but at least I know they will enjoy and use this present.

    Really love this fabric and your quilt design!

  26. Elizabeth S. says:

    How fun! I love the colors in this collection!
    Weekend plans: transplant two roses and a Bee Balm plant, grading (teaching two summer classes), and picking the hubs up from the airport.

  27. Bev says:

    Every time you design a new fabric line I think “this is the best one yet”. Then it gets followed up by yet another “best one yet”. So, here we go again with Seaside Cottage! Love everything about it…..and the quilt is terrific. The flower motif quilted in the blocks is perfect for the quilt. It’s heating up again in the Midwest so I plan on a little piecing and quilting time inside this weekend.

  28. Linda Sandusky says:

    I absolutely love this collection!!! I plan to work on a quilt for my grandson’s first birthday & put a paver edging around the new perennial bed that I planted.

  29. Nancy says:

    I really like the border fabric. Thank you for sharing all your pictures of that beautiful little boy.

  30. Kris says:

    I love the fabric, it is beautiful!! I would love to win some. I am going with my husband up to Big Bear for some fishing and relaxing this weekend.
    Carter is so darn cute!!!!!
    XO Kris

  31. Paula says:

    Heather, love your new fabric line and pattern. The appliqued daisy, replicating the one in the border print, is just adorable. This weekend I am working on a chevron quilt and trying to figure out on my own how to piece it with strips and 45 degree cuts rather than the HST or rectangle zig zag methods that seem to be so popular now. Congrats on your new baby. Don’t know how you continue to do so much with your business with a newborn but your fans appreciate it.

  32. Robin Luedtke says:

    I love this fabric. I have been waiting for it. I have just the pattern!

  33. KarinM says:

    Love your new collection. Have a class at the local quilt shop this weekend. Thanks for all your inspiration.

  34. Jan says:

    Your fabric is lovely! I am going to finish my design wall ‘construction’ this weekend. Then, I am going to sew!

  35. JO Eidse says:

    Just found your blog recently and am quite enjoying it and love your quilting style and colors. Congratulations on the arrival of your little boy! Hope you are enjoying motherhood. This weekend–maybe some time with the grandkids, maybe running for the farmers in the family who are busy with harvest and hopefully some baking for a bridal shower on Sunday.

  36. treadlemusic says:

    Your fabrics are awesome and I really love how you showcased them in the “lattice”-styled quilt…..with appliques….my all time fave thing to do on such a quilt (sigh)……beautiful….hugs, Doreen

  37. diane says:

    Beautiful gorgous fabric once again. My week end will be filled with marathon quilting.

  38. Mary Ann says:

    Another great fabric line. I will have to be on the lookout for this new fabric. Love the flowers in your garden.

  39. sandy f says:

    Fabric is beautiful!! Plan on doing some sewing and attending a wedding.
    Have a great weekend.

  40. Leslie J. says:

    I am so excited to see this fabric done up in a quilt and to know it will be here soon! In true Minnesota fashion, we are headed up north to the lake tomorrow, letting the kiddos bring friends this time. A good time will be had by all, I hope. Thanks for the chance!

    P.S. Love that sweet baby!

  41. Karen says:

    The fabric is beautiful as is the baby! Miss seeing him! I will spend tomorrow making dinner for Sunday and painting what was my daughter’s bedroom and will now be my new quilt room. (Light and dark blue sponge paint isn’t easy to cover!). Have a delightful weekend!

  42. Susan C says:

    Beautiful fabric, love those happy flowers. This weekend we’ll be winding up our family vacation. I’ve had a wonderful time with my grandchildren, 10 month old twin boys and their 9 month old sweet little girl cousin. I love seeing photos of your sweet little boy. Babies are such a special joy!

    As always, I love your fabric! We are just going to relax this weekend, so I hope to spend some time quilting. Thanks for a chance to win a bundle of you beautiful fabric.

  48. Kaye M. says:

    I like the gray and white lattice fabric that you used in your quilt. Its very pretty and has a soothing effect. This weekend I’m emptying out my kitchen cupboards because the guys are coming on Monday to begin remodeling my kitchen. I’m excited but I remember the mess you had when you were remodeling at your house. Aren’t ;you glad that all that work was done before the baby arrived!

  49. materialgirlquilts says:

    Love the new fabric collection and love your new quilt. I am also a fan of any daisy type flower 🙂

  58. Sandy Evenson-Hagen says:

    I always enjoy your fabrics and your patterns, your colors and sense of style is very appealing to me. It has been very warm here in Northern MN, but tomorrow I’m spending the day working in a new quilt shop with super air conditioning! I could spend the day at home sewing in air conditioned comfort, but working in the shop is a fun way to spend my day off, too. Thanks for being so generous with your giveaways!
    Love seeing photos of Carter, it is so easy to forget how quickly babies change.
    Sandy E-H in Bemidji

    BEAUTIFUL 🙂 I am going to try to finish piecing an Allison Harris pattern. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this fabric, I have been waiting for it to get to the store. I had a cartload of 1/2 yards but then realized I needed to make my final payment to Disney for my sons 7th birthday. Alas this fabric will have to wait 😦

  65. Karen Guitard says:

    I just want you to know the joy that your blog postings have given me!

    First of all I am an avid quilter and I have loved your patterns and fabrics since I discovered “Anka’s Treasures” a few years ago.
    Just recently I have started to follow your blog and you have inspired me to return to knitting…your sweaters and hat for Carter drew me in and I am now knitting baby things to put away for my grandchildren “to be” (hopefully in the next few years!).
    Now you have those gorgeous photos of Carter posted…your blog has it all!
    Congratulations and blessings to you and your family…and your “dear baby boy”!

    (New Brunswick, Canada)

    P.S. You photography is wonderful as well…do you take all of your own photos? I have an interest in photgraphy, as well, I tell you, your blog has it all, Heather!

  73. Cinda says:

    I agree with you, that border fabric is beautiful. I’m going to a surprize birthday party this weekend. Don’t any of you tell my big brother about it.

  75. Mary Jo says:

    Great new line of fabric. I really love that you have grey included. The daisies (fabric ones) are so cute. Your darling Carter is getting so big and so cute. I am staying inside with the Airconditioner and doing some sewing. Sunday I am going to a friends to learn fabric dyeing. Thanks for the chance to win.

  76. Lydia says:

    Heather, I love the new quilt. I’m a fan of “daisy” kinds of flowers, too. My faves are daisy mums. This weekend, I’m doing laundry, knitting, and doing a bit of quilting. Except for the laundry part, a fun weekend!

  77. Rachel Hayes says:

  80. bev says:

    So fun to see how you take ideas from the world that surrounds you and put the colors and shapes into your fabrics!!

  81. Jennifer H. says:

    It is supposed to storm here this weekend. Hopefully that will mean lots of time with needle and thread! Tomorrow is my day to cross stitch with my best friend, but I hope to get a chance to play with my sewing machine as well. It is hard to stay away from the machine when I see such beautiful inspiration!

  82. Judy says:

    I love your flowers and quilt, you can send them my way when you tire of them (lol). Really the fabric and flowers are just so beautiful. You and mom did a fantastic job.

  83. Donna Viar says:

    I would love to do a table runner with your new fabrics. This weekend I will be on a beautiful lake Sat. and Sun. and able to finish working on the binding of a Christmas table runner with appliqued poinsettias. I am really pleased with the results.

  84. carol broughton says:

    I love Seaside Cottage, it’s so elegant! The appliqued flowers are the perfect touch to the quilt and your mother did a fantastic job!

  85. Karen says:

    Gorgeous fabric bundle for a lovely give away. This weekend we plan to visit our grand children. They live in a seaside town, so your fabric is very appropriate! Cheers.

  86. Melissa says:

    The pattern is beautiful as well as the fabric! Tomorrow I am taking my two girls swimming as well as my niece and nephew. I wa hoping to be playing with my new long arm quilting machine but that did not happen. They had to take it back for repair. Bummer. But swimming and quality time with my girls will be fun too!

  87. Kell says:

    I love the grays in your new line. I’m hoping to get the binding & label on a baby quilt that I have quilted, start getting the next quilt ready for my appointment to use the long arm at my LQS next Saturday & try the pulled pork recipe I have in the crock pot tomorrow.

  88. Dawn R. says:

    I think I will relax tomorrow since company just left. Love the baby pictures.

  89. Nancy says:

    Blessings to you!

  90. Lin M. says:

    Congratulations on your beautiful baby! My weekend involves sewing for my daughter’s wedding in September.

  91. Paule-Marie says:

    Love the baby picstures and the fabric line. I’m going to a bling party at my local quilt store. They just got in a new embellisher system from Janome. It looks really interesting. Definitely easier than placing the jewels one by one. And I’ll be binding my latest wallhanging. Plus all the usual – grocery shopping, laundry, etc.

  92. Nancy says:

    If the stars align properly, I will be sewing. Keep your fingers crossed for me, please!

    Beautiful fabric! I am helping my granddaughter celebrate her first birthday this weekend! Joan

    I’m working on cutting out all the great fabrics I found on the “bobbin along the I-80” shop hop in IL this past week….enough for 4 different quilts! Let the sewing begin 🙂 Still have 1 pattern I’m saving for the red, grey and grey floral print from your new line!!

  96. Karen says:

    Great fabrics – would love to get some fabric. I am going to my favorite quilt store to meet with the monthly Lunch Bunch group. We get together and discuss what quilt projects we are working on. Would love to show this material at the next meeting with the girls.

    Have a great weekend and give that baby lots of kisses, he is so cute.

  99. Chrys says:

    Unfortunately, I will not be doing any sewing this weekend. I will be helping my family clean my 93 year old grandma’s house, so we can move her to a smaller – more managible apartment. I love your new line of fabric, and would so love to win a fat quarter pack! Thanks for the chance!!

  100. marie says:

    The colors in your new line are great. Red and aqua are my favorite. Love the gray too. Thanks for the giveaway.

  105. Janet says:

    I love the border fabric too! We are making hay this weekend. We need lots of big hay bales to feed our cattle this winter. It’s hot and dry here too; so we will be praying for rain. This fabric would go a long ways to cheer me up. lol

  106. Liz says:

    More lovely fabric! Thanks for the chance to win some of your latest line of fabric. This weekend we are grilling out and then sitting in the front yard to watch a parade with our GRANDKIDS and other family members.

  107. Joan says:

    Gorgeous fabric and a beautiful quilt! My daughter and her five year old twin girls and five month old baby girl are spending the weekend with us. Have a great weekend with your sweet, baby boy!

    Plans for the weekend: sew a small quilt with my mom as i am still a beginner quilter!

  114. heartsease57 says:

    You seriously need to put a baby on one of these quilt shots! 2 birds with one stone-we get to see the fabulous fabric AND Carter all at once.

  115. Kristi says:

    I love your new fabric, especially the aqua (my new favorite color). Thanks for the chance to win some of your beautiful fabrics. As for plans for the weekend — work 😦

  116. Just a BBQ with friends tomorrow afternoon. Church on Sunday. Hopefully time with my darling grand-daughters. I really must comment that Carter is cute, cute, cute! and your fabric is lovely.

    The new fabrics are so yummy! Cannot wait to get my hands on them. Because it is so hot in the midwest, I am sewing, going to a local quilt show, sewing, sewing and sewing some more. Did I mention that I would be sewing this weekend? Congrats on the new addition….. so cute!

    Another lovely line Heather. Has Carter given you any sewing time? My little one is just shy of 4 months, and he’s finally getting nap routines down… somewhat. lol But he only likes to sleep for half hour intervals,so it makes getting some sewing in a bit tricky. Have a great day! Thanks for the giveaway.

  142. Cindy says:

    Love your new fabric! I’m going to start a new quilt for my step daughters bridal shower gift. Congrats on Carter……..he is adorable!

    Daisies are one of my favorites, too. I love the fabric and quilt. This weekend we’re celebrating my daughter and husband’s birthdays with a family get-together.

    Your new fabric line is gorgeous. I have just finished piecing Gypsy Girl, (not with your new fabric, though), and I LOVE it. This weekend we’re going to a party, and I’ve made hand quilted gifts for both the guest of honor and the hostess. I’d love to make something with your new fabric. Congratulations on Carter!

  170. DianeH says:

    This weekend I’m making myself clean the windows before I get to do any sewing. They are bad – really bad. Love the new line.

  171. Ruth Finch says:

    OK, your photos just made up my mind…..I MUST get some of your Seaside Cottage fabrics. Love the gray with the aqua and red!

  172. Sue Lord says:

    I love all of your fabrics. We have been spending the week in our fifth wheel camper. I wish I had brought fabric for a quilting project that I am thinking about making! Would love to your new fabrics.

  173. Susanne says:

    I did some fabric shop hopping yesterday, hanging with my little one today, and having a playday tomorrow. Hoping for some sewing time in there somewhere (lol). Lovely fabric!

    Great quilt. I love the flowers. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    Today I’m planning on refinishing a coffee table and painting it a teal blue; then doing a little sewing. Tomorrow’s my b’day and I’m meeting my sister on the coast of Maine. We’re going to a wine tasting and then doing a little shopping in Camden.

  177. Cheryl says:

    I just finished canning 3 dozen jars of peaches and a few dozen peach butter….now I am heading to the sewing room to contemplate what I will start sewing this afternoon….perfect afternoon in my opinion.

  179. Jill says:

    Adorable quilt, love those fabrics, will seek them out (if I don’t win them!)

  180. Heather says:

    All kinds of cuteness! i’m in search of a bleach pen for some t-shirt fun this weekend.

  183. Debbie M says:

    Classy quilt, Heather! I love the look of the applique on top of the pieced blocks. Beautiful fabric, too!

  184. Peggi says:

    Oh those fabrics are so lovely! Unfortunately, I haven\’t been having much fun this week. While we were out of state at my father-in-law\’s memorial service, we were notified that our beloved black lab passed away at the kennel. I am really looking forward to going home and sewing.

  185. Mary M says:

    very pretty fabric! I am still decluttering and organizing my sewing room. Unable to sew or cut! yikes! Thanks for the chance to win!
    Mary Malone

  186. We just finished Vacation Bible School at our church this week, so my family and I are relaxing today. I just love your new fabric, and hopefully I’ll see it in our local store here soon. We live in Canada, so sometimes we don’t see the “new” stuff for a while, at least where I live.

  187. Janet says:

    A lovely range of fabric and a great pattern. Carter is so cute. Plans for the weekend? We have today moved our son from one flat to another, tomorrow I’m quilting with friends. Also hoping summer will come soon to the UK

  188. Kaymc says:

    I am recovering from surgery, so not doing much but dreaming of what to make with your gorgreous new fabric. What is the name of your new flower?

  189. Sunnybec says:

    I am sewing!! Yay! I am trying to finish a few projects to make some room in my sewing room, wish me luck!!! Linda

  190. Lisa Marie says:

    My husband has been out of town lately so this weekend we are just hanging out together and piddling around the house. Just before he got home though, I finished quilting a quilt using some of your Artful Home fabrics (I’ve been hoarding, I admit) and using a pattern (Ring Toss) from your new Kids Quilt book, but made bigger for an adult. I’m thrilled with how it turned out. I love your new fabric line and the new quilt is gorgeous. Thanks for the chance to win!

  191. Andy says:

    I love that outer border fabric too. It would make a great skirt – and I have the perfect pattern!

    This morning we went to a good ol’ hometown pancake breakfast followed by a parade right on main street. How much more “classic summertime” can you get?

  192. Beth Farwell says:

    Hi, the fabric is lovely. I’m spending the weekend and all next week at my cottage! The fabric would look wonderful here. Enjoy motherhood, the time goes by in a flash.

    Congratulations on the many new additions in your life!

  199. Linda says:

    wow–I love your quilt–red is just my favorite color–I will make this one…..I cut our fabric today for a queen size quilt and I am ready to sew–it is too hot to be outside doing anything else….

  200. marsha nelson says:

    Your new fabric line is just so fun, like always. Today we went to my 8 year old grand daughters baptism. I made her white dress and she looked so pretty. Thanks for the chance to win the Seaside Cottage fat quarters. That would be soooo fabulous.

  201. Jen says:

    Love the new line! I have been doing a little work outside…as long as I can stand the heat! Tomorrow I am going to attempt to plant a hydrangea but I don’t know if it will live through it. I’ll have my eye out for your newest line in the shop, it looks beautiful as always!

  202. Candie says:

    Spending a long weekend at our cabin in Cooper Landing, fishing for salmon on the Menzies, AND sewing a table runner as a wedding gift. The only thing that could make this better would be if I was sewing with your beautiful new fabric line! I will find it though 🙂

  203. Peggy says:

    Love your new fabric line but hey where is a picture of Carter? You will now have to include a picture of your adorable little guy on every blog.

  204. Debbie says:

    Oops! I forgot to mention what I am doing. No quilting right now, but I am working on finishing up a shawl in a Knitalong. Thanks, Heather!

  205. Amy says:

    Love red and aqua together…..great fabric. This weekend I’m sewing curtains for our home office.

  206. Wow. That’s a gorgeous quilt! I love your use of the lighter fabric. Sadly, I’m working this weekend, but I’m off next week and hope to get some work done on a quilt top.

  207. The fabrics are gorgeous. I am starting a quilt for a friend this weekend.

  208. Di says:

    Hi- Love the fabrics, I like the outer border too and like the grey colour way. This weekend I fly home from Auckland where I’ve been on a course for work. Looking at pretty fabric is the closest I can come to sewing whilst sitting at an airport, so thanks for sharing and making me smile.

  209. Sandy F. says:

    Love the new fabric. Please enter me in the giveaway. I’m doing some laundry and other such boring necessities this weekend. ;(

  210. El says:

    garden work – raspberry jam – maybe a little time to quilt? Love your work!

  211. Mara says:

    Wow, I can’t believe you are able to have a baby, write a blog and make quilts, you are an amazing women! And if you read this then you are even more amazing because there are over 250 comments already and it has only been 2 days, saw your quilt on pinterest and came over to your blog for the first time.
    I just finished cooking some ribs and now have a peach/cherry cobbler in the oven.
    Love the fabrics and look forward to reading your blog more often.

  212. Lynn D in NC says:

    I love your fabrics – great designs and color choices. No quilting for me this weekend. We are in the middle of a large remodel on our house, so we are constantly moving things inside to get out of the way.

  213. Jolyn Olson says:

    I would love to get those fat quarters! I’m spending precious time with my 17 year old granddaughter…Morgan! She is just delightful and full of joy!

  214. Heidi says:

    Love the quilt! I am relaxing with the hubby today, after working yesterday. It’s too hot here in SE Kansas to do much outside, so we will hang out in the AC today. Have really enjoyed all the pics – baby, garden, quilts – all beautiful!

  215. Rachael says:

    Beautiful fabrics! I spent some time quilting with my mom and grandma this weekend. So fun!

  216. Nicole says:

  217. evie says:

    It’s a very happy collection of fabric.

  218. Rita Nichols says:

    I love your new fabric line. I’m in love with aqua and red! I babysat my 20 month old granddaughter yesterday, she’s a hoot and she really wore me out. Today I will be going to my grandson’s birthday party, he’s 7 yrs old now, such a big boy. Life gets busy when the grandkids come along, 5 so far. Have a nice day!

  219. Denice says:

    We live in southern minnesota and it has been so hot but I am lucky enough to have a sewing room in basement. So I am spending as much time as I can sewing where it is 5 degrees cooler than upstairs.

  220. Mary Ann says:

    A little sewing this weekend and today my daughters are both stopping by with my granddaughters for lunch! Great Sunday. Love your new line Heather, the browns are fabulous touch.

  221. Nancy Augustine says:

    Since Seaside Cottage is now in stores, I am spending the weekend looking for it online and daydreaming about the quilts I will make with it! I am also continuing my quest to see how many times I can use my grill to make supper this summer rather than using my stove.

  222. Vic says:

    I’m working on a quilt called Pie In The Sky … it’s in civil war fabric, which is kind of dull. It will be beautiful, but I’m itching to get my hands on some of your fabric. Hope all is going well with that beautiful new baby boy, he is adorable. Waiting for the new pictures!

  223. Cyndie Salvatore says:

    When I see the quilt and fabrics the words “fresh and perky” come to mind, even with the brown mixed in. Your talents provide much enjoyment to so many.

  224. Deb W says:

    Great new line. We spent the day travelling to visit my husband’s 102 year old grandmother.

  225. Lyn Smith says:

    Beautiful new fabrics, love the colours. This w/e- a bit of sewing, a bit of visiting friends.

  226. Jannette says:

    The fabric is GORGEOUS! Love the pattern too!
    This weekend, I’m trying to stay cool….and I have a Disappearing 9-Patch Variation quilt top to finish and then layer, quilt and bind – so I can give it to the recipients next Sunday!

  227. Megan says:

    I love the colors in this line! we spent much of the weekend with family celebrating all the summer birthdays.

  228. Jacquelyn says:

    Thanks once again Heather for your very generous heart and your wonderful giveaway of fabric. My weekend is winding down but I painted 2 rooms, mowed our lawn for 3 hours and just got back from a baby shower. The weather here in northern Alberta is beautiful and I love our summers!! Not much to complain about that’s for sure!

  229. Deb Shetler says:

    The weekend is almost over, Saturday was a lazy day because it rained on and off all day. But today we went on a motorcycle ride and got a little sun burn with it…. Your fabric is beautiful….

  232. Pam says:

    Love your new fabric line. Oh, to be so talented!!! Didn’t get to do any sewing this weekend. Spent a lot of time outdoors instead. Saturday, went and cheered my niece on at her state softball tournament in Sioux Falls. Today we went to the air show in Sioux Falls…Amazing!

  233. Colleen M says:

    This quilt is beautiful and adorable (the appliqued flowers). I love the new fabric line. This weekend, hubby and I went to a 50th B-day bash! A few of us are turning the BIG 5-O this year and my bosses son went ALL OUT…my birthday is going to (hopefully) sneak by unnoticed:) Thanks for the chance to enter.

  234. Ruth K says:

    Another beautiful collection of fabrics! The applique is a wonderful touch on your quilt! As for the weekend, I got a little sewing done, finished a quilt top, went to a movie and made a nice Sunday supper. A very nice weekend indeed! Take care!

  237. Nancy L says:

    Had a fairly restful weekend after a very difficult week. Two daughters and 3 grandbabies left our house Saturday am, then we took my parents to an out of town family wedding in the afternoon. Sunday we went to church, lunch with a few friends, and an afternoon nap. Love your fabrics as usual!

  238. Anne M says:

    Hi Heather- I like your new line- very fresh, just like it’s name! I helped move my son from and apt in Jersey City, NJ to a 5 th floor apt in NYC with no elevator. I haven’t been this tired in ages! He is excited for this new adventure in his life. No sewin T all this weekend, and that’s okay too.

  239. Lusting over the fabric makes my daily IV infusion for morning sickness much more bearable. I pinned it the first time you showed it as my all time favorite line. Every piece!

  240. Claudia says:

    These are beautiful fabrics – and I love the quilt, too! This weekend we travelled home from our wonderful holiday in Great Britain. When stopping in Brussels to see the Atomium, our car got broken into and some stuff was stolen. The thing I miss most is my laptop with all our family photos on it – now we don*t have any pictures left from our kids or anything except the few we printed out since I didn’t have a backup…. pretty sad. Oh well. At least we got home safe. Greetings from Germany, Claudia

  241. Amy says:

    It was a great weekend. I finished quilting two quilts for presents to be gifted this coming weekend. Now for the bindings! Love your. New line,especially the reds.

  242. Teri says:

    I spent the weekend at the ballpark with my kids. I hope to sneak in some sewing time today and put together the blocks for a quilt. Love several of the prints in your new line. I am starting to use florals more in my quilting.

  243. Mandy says:

    This is the sweetest fabric I’ve seen! And I love the pattern you used. I’m working on finishing a few WIP’s, today will be finishing the quilting on my DD’s quilt.

  244. Kim says:

    I love your new fabric line. This weekend will be spent watching my grandchildren. Plans are to take them to the zoo and also to the beach. Grandpa & Grandma will be very tired come Sunday night, but oh so happy. Then wil will be able to get back to sewing.

  245. Tina McNamara says:

    Well, no sewing for me this weekend. But, I did buy some desks off craigslist for my new sewing room I have recently inherited from my daughter. Can’t wait to get all set up. I think it is going to take a while. Beautiful fabric line. Love the reds. Congratulations on your new baby, Carter. He is beautiful!

  246. Deb S says:

    I went to a sidewalk sale at my local quilt shop — prices decreased as the weekend progressed. Even though the selection was less on Sunday, so were the prices!! Now I have more quilt backs!! I’d love to win some of your new fabric line to make another quilt — and use up some backing fabric!

  247. Oh, I LOVE this fabric line! This weekend I went to a bridal shower for a dear friend! Fun, fun, fun!!!

  248. Melissa says:

    I am currently hand sewing the binding on a quilt for my niece who just turned 16! Can’t wait to give it to her! I work at a quilt shop and we ordered most of the fabric from your line, Seaside Cottage! Picked out fabrics for the Diamond Diva topper to make as a shop sample! Carter is adorable by the way!

  249. Jan says:

    Love your new collection. I am planning on sewing this weekend 🙂

  250. Angela says:

    Beautiful fabric! And beautiful baby! Thanks for the chance to win!

  251. Michelle says:

    I usually do not comment on the blogs that I read but I could not resist this time. I do love your new fabric line, don’t get me wrong, but don’t you think you were being a little unfair in showing the fabric off right after pictures of your sweet, sweet baby?! I am so happy for you and your husband! Your baby is so beautiful and very lucky to have you and your husband as parents!

  252. Lindsey says:

    Beautiful! Love all the florals 🙂

    This weekend was spent trimming trees and restoring 2 small barn sheds in our backyard!!! Lots of work but will look so beautiful when its done!

  253. TS says:

    Hoping I’m not too late for a chance to win the new Seaside Cottage fabric 🙂 I LOVE the border fabric! Beautiful 🙂

  254. Debbie says:

    I just saw the fabric line on at The Fat Quarter Shop. How can you decide – both packs are gorgeous! This weekend includes some time in the boat since we’ve been unable to the last few weeks.

  255. Wendy T. says:

    Well the weekend weather was perfect for productivity so I did a lot of cleaning and baking to be ready for when it gets too hot again to want to do anything. Boring but good. I am amazed you are getting anything done with that cute little boy around. Love your new fabric line.

  256. Irma M. says:

    Love the flower applique on this quilt along with the new fabric line. It has been too hot around here to do anything outside. Saturday I painted some more in my bedroom and went to a friend’s pool on Sunday. I hope you had a great weekend!

  257. Christine Thomas says:

    I love the outer border fabric, too. Very pretty and colorful. So much could be done with it.

  258. Heather – what a beautiful line of new fabrics- I love the quilt that you have created with them – and the flowers that have inspired it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful fabrics.
    Congratulations on the birth of your son- He is one handsome little boy.
    I went to a wedding open house yesterday and I got some quilting done too. We are off to the mountains for a few days this week.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  259. Rachelle Parshall says:

    As always I love your new line Seaside Cottage and the quilt you designed for the fabric. Plans this weekend hopefully will be getting a few house projects closer to completion. This summer we are trying to get the house resided and then painted. Rachelle

  260. Pat Hersl says:

    I’ve started cutting out little granddaughter’s first Chrsitmas quilt. Will probably sew and fuss with that a bit while learning the rhythm of my new machine. “So many stitches, so little time.”

  261. Audrey Bretz says:

Hid from the 32 degrees outside Sunday.Wish I had air conditioning in my little quilt house, the fan can’t keep me cool while sewing but I did finish an owl baby quilt. yippee!. Carter is adorable, such a great smile. Love the grey in the new fabric line.

    I also have a love for flowers, I have the same daisy flower in my yard. I really think that is why I am so drawn to your fabrics. Had a great weekend, kept the granddaughters for a sleep over Friday Night and my brother & his family were here for the evening Saturday night and recharged and relaxed on Sunday. I am anxious to see your fabric in the stores. Also, Carter is growing and changing! Nice to see him just light up when you talk to him, says a lot about Mom!

  274. Alice says:

    As always, beautiful fabric. You are so very creative and I anxiously await your new line. Oh for the weekend; this past Friday was my las day on the job; I actually retired, so did not do the normaly weekend house work and laundry. I have all week to do those chores.

  290. Chris says:

    Yah for the new header! Your fabrics are always so pretty. I come by often but don’t always leave a comment. (Sometimes I feel funny leaving a comment ) I have been thrilled about your little one and God’s blessing on you and Joel. I have prayed for you through the journey, how wonderful to see how God has answered those prayers!
    Over the weekend I taught a beginning sewing class at our LQS here in town. It was fun and the girls all went home with completed projects. Now our family is preparing to go on a week long trip to our home school confernece in Indianapolis. We are excited about visiting the Creation Museum outside of CIncinnati first on our way to the conference,so no sewing for me for a week or more 🙂 Oh and thanks for the generous give away. 🙂

    Beautiful quilt, beautiful fabrics! My daughter and family will be leaving for home this weekend so I will be quilting to keep myself busy. They live many, many miles away so I don’t know when I will see them again. I think I need your fabric to keep me busy!
