Quilted Unicorn Backpack

Do you have enough unicorns in your life?  Probably not. I made this child-sized backpack using one of my absolute favorite fabrics of all time(!!!) the Lovely Hunt by Lizzie House. I would wallpaper a room with this fabric if I could afford it.

I modified the pattern slightly for a rounded top flap, and instead of elastic on the shoulder straps, I added several button holes so their length can be adjusted.

Gaga for Granny Squares

Riley Blake Floribella Granny Square Table Runner

I recently went a little batty for granny squares. They’re so cute and homey and traditional and colorful and the symmetry makes my brain feel nice. I made a pair of sweet little spring floral table runners with a layer cake of Riley Blake’s Floribella fabric collection.

Maybe this one is my favorite (just kidding they’re all my favorite):

Then I made a casual couch throw quilt with some blue and red fabrics. For the backing I used a shirting weight flannel and it has a nice light and airy feel.

Vintage Market Lattice Quilt

Vintage Market Tasha Noel Lattice Quilt

Let’s ignore the fact that I failed to share any projects here for the past, erm, several months. I’ll just beat you all over the heads with quilts for the next few weeks (that should be soft and squishy and pleasant enough).

I made this sweet little mint, midnight and strawberry confection with Tasha Noel’s Vintage Market, a fabric family incorporating some of my favorite things in life: bicycles, markets, and handkerchiefs to name a few.
