A beautiful Flower pouch

My husband and I went on a 2 week vacation to Chicago's North Shore. I had some downtime to rest and relax from a very buisy and stressful schedule in La.  We went many days to see my husband's father who is in a rest home. I took this shot there. It is a beautiful meadow with a pond. I picked the wild flowers to put in my father n law's room. This cute project would be a great house warming gift. This cute little project is called "Fabric Gift Pouch"
by "A Spoonful of Sugar" tutorial for this project is HERE

A Modern World...

It seems like I came out of a coma after having my baby. In the 3 years from the tough pregnancy till now, A huge explosion of the modern quilt world happened in blog world and somehow I missed the train. I love so many things that I am seeing! I have not had much time to sew working full time as a graphic motion designer at NBC and trying to pursue a carreer as a fabric designer and having a toddler! So with all that said I am trying to catch up to all these beautiful projects that people are sewing on Instagram, Flickr, and Blogs. I thought I would take some baby steps lately and just expirement (which is what I love to do most) and make blocks with out making a full sized quilt. But if you like these I will always try to give info so you can make them.  

This pretty block came from HERE.
 I used Art Gallery Fabrics with one scrap from my stash and White print for background from my stash.
