Raggedy Flaggedy

I'm sporting a reeeeeally cheesy grin right now.

That's my "Raggedy Flaggedy" pillow on the cover of McCall's Quick Quilts! I thought I'd share a little peek. It's an easy project to whip up in an afternoon.

To view the complete pattern, go grab a copy of McCall's Quick Quilts (June/July 2013). It should be on your local newsstand any day now. A big thanks to my friends at McCall's for being so great to work with!
I've had a few people ask about the buttons so let me tell you about them! They are these lovely wooden buttons called "Simple Stars" by Favorite Findings. I found mine at Jo-Ann's in the button section but they are also available online if you google them. Oh and obviously I painted them white.

It's not the first time I've used "Happy-Go-Lucky" and it certainly won't be the last. This gorgeous stuff hits stores next month. YESSSSSSS!!!!
You can find my detailed tutorial on how to recreate this happy little quilt using a "Happy-Go-Lucky" jelly roll. Head on over to Moda Bake Shop today and check it out!

Tres Meses

I'm still working my tail off on quilt market projects, some Moda Bake Shop stuff, and a new pattern. I feel a little bad about neglecting the blog so I thought I'd sneak you a peek at a "bonus" quilt made from the trimmings of the pattern I'm working on.
Oh, and this guy. I don't think I could find a better model, do you? He is growing up too quickly.
Also, I can't wait until Moda's Happy-Go-Lucky hits stores in May. I can't get enough of it!
