Emery Dress

I wanted to post another one of the samples that I made for Quilt Market — the Emery Dress by Christine Haynes. Lots of people asked about the pattern, so I thought I’d share. It’s now available in a .pdf version as well as a paper pattern. You can add the optional collar, bow at the waist, or longer sleeves. The fit of the dress is perfect and the instructions were easy to follow. It came together very quickly.

This dress above is made from one of my double gauze fabrics with metallic ink from the new Charms collection for Kokka. The double gauze fabric sews really well and makes the dress so comfortable!

Sheep

My friend Laura made these sweet needle-felted sheep for display in my Quilt Market booth. You can buy your very own sheep in her Etsy shop, Felt Jar!

You can see the sheep fabric colorways below. These are printed on cotton/linen blend fabric and the neutral colorway has gold accents. Again, this is from my Charms collection for Kokka which will be shipping to stores in December or January.

Quilt Market Booth

I’m back at home, but Quilt Market is still going on in Houston. Here’s a photo of my booth. I didn’t get a chance to look at many other booths this time, but you can see a few images over on Instagram. If you’re interested in ordering the Charms collection for your shop, please contact their U.S. distributor Seven Islands Fabric. It should be shipping in December or January, so it will make it to your local quilt shop in just a few months!

And below you can see some of the samples that I made. You can find my Framework collection now at Pink Castle Fabrics and Miss Matatabi.

Present Perfect

Today I’m excited to be part of the sew-along for Betz White’s new book, Present Perfect: 25 Gifts to Sew & Bestow from Interweave. The book has some very useful and fun projects that you can create quickly.

Since I am busy sewing for the upcoming Quilt Market, I decided to use some of my new Charms fabric to make the Eye Candy Glasses Case as you can see below. I made a simpler version without the contrasting fabric on the front of the case. Super quick pattern and as usual, Betz’s instructions and illustrations are clear and helpful.
