Ya’ll Are a Crafty Bunch

You know how we relentlessly ask you to send us photos of the projects you’ve made with our fabric…

Well, it turns out that many of you have actually done so. Some pretty cool stuff has been showing up in our inboxes recently, and we’re really exited to share some of them with you today.

The first set of photos was sent to us by Corinna Hyde of Corinna Couture.

Corinna’s name may sound familiar to many of you, as we have mentioned her on our blog before. Corinna is awesome because not only does she make and sell these adorable dresses and skirts, (check out her etsy shop) she was also kind enough to whip up some sample dresses for us out of our Birds and Berries line for use in our market booth.

I totally want one of these dresses, and I don’t even have kids yet.

But the craftiness doesn’t stop there. Feast your eyes on these little gems…er eggs…sent to us by Amanda Murphy of Amanda Murphy Designs.

Amanda used our Flora line to make her Easter Egg Table Topper come to life, which I think was a great decision…for obvious reasons.

You can view the whole table topper here…but wait there’s more! This pattern is actually a free tutorial that she’s posted on her website. She shared the directions in multiple posts, which can be found here, here, here, and here.

I love this pattern for a variety of reasons, but the most important is the fact that you can use your sewing machine to appliqué the eggs onto the background. I think this table topper may have to make an appearance on my next Easter table scape.

And last, but most certainly not least, we’ve got Laura Piland’s “Bloom” quilt.

I love the vintage chic feel of this quilt. In fact it almost looks like something you could buy from Anthropologie. And the story behind this quilt is equally cool. Laura is new to the wonderful world of quilting, and by the looks of it, she’s a natural. Anyway, she made this quilt for a friend who was moving to a new…very far away town as a reminder to always bloom where you are planted.

I know…it melts your heart doesn’t it. What a great friend!

Thanks again Corinna, Amanda, and Laura for sending us your awesome projects! We love seeing pictures of all the amazing and creative things that people are doing with the L+J fabrics.

I’ll finish off the post with one last plea…Please send us photos of your projects! We know you’re out there…and we know you’re crafty. You can either e-mail us via our contact page on the website, or post it to our Facebook Fan Page. Thanks!

    Those are so cute. Did Laura mention if she had a pattern for the Bloom quilt?

      I know, right! According to Laura’s e-mail, the pattern is based on “Lissy’s Flowers” by Mary’s Cottage Quilts.
