Quilt Fun!!!

Hey Y’all!!

My awesome big sister, Brittani Scott, just turned 25!

You should check out her blog, House to Home, or if you’re a music person, check out her music blog, Piano and Pen.

For her birthday I decided to make her a quilt to match her living room. She’s kind of using the jewel tones and black and white.

Here is my inspiration! I found this picture on Pinterest.



I got my fabric at Hobby Lobby! MY Favorite!!

I ended up with WAY to much! I got a yard and a half of each, then another 2 yards of the backing.

I used the black and white as the the backing.



It was 45×60. I just got a pre cut package of batting from Hobby Lobby.


I just used a black binding that I also got from Hobby Lobby.

This is the finished product!! I’m very proud of myself. This is the first quilt I’ve done like this!










Never be scared to try something new. You could find out it’s your new favorite thing! :)

Hope y’all have a wonderful day! Don’t forget to check out Brit’s blogs!!

Hey Y’all! :)

I’ve really been into kid’s clothes lately. I’ve always really liked smocking on babies, buts it’s usually pretty expensive.

Here are some cute things I found online.

For the Gals!










For the Guys!






I LOVE these so much! I want my future children to wear smocking!!

So, I decided I would give it a try. I was playing around the other day and this is what I got..





Let me know what you think! If you do smocking and have some tips, please leave a commit! :)
