Sugar Pop Fat Quarter G-I-V-E-A-W-A-Y!

If you love Sugar Pop by Liz Scott for Moda,

then you have come to the right place!

Sugar Pop is Liz's debut fabric line for Moda

and this is why I love Sugar Pop:

The colors and designs

are so fresh and modern!

I first fell in love with

Liz Scott when I started reading her blog

I started reading her blog

before her daughter, Rylie, was born.

I was drawn to her love of vintage books

and the way that she used her Sugar Pop

fabric line to decorate her daughter's nursery.

Here are more of her Sugar Pop creations:

Now her daughter, Rylie is almost 8 months old

and Liz's Sugar Pop fabric line

is available in quilt stores.

Today, Liz has stopped by my blog

to tell you a little bit more

about herself and her Sugar Pop fabric line.

So let me introduce you to Liz Scott:


Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you landed in the fabulous world of designing fabric.

Well, let's see. I am originally from Michigan but now I live in Los Angeles with my wonderful husband, Ryan, my daughter, Rylie, and my cat, Zipper. I am a graphic designer by trade, but a few years back I decided that my heart was really in the crafts and sewing world and I pursued fabric design: it was the perfect intersection of my skills and interests. Moda picked up my first line and like you said, it really is a fabulous world!

What is your favorite print in the Sugar Pop fabric line and why?

There are qualities about all of them that I love. For instance, I think Mod Buds is so simple and versatile. Mod Flowers is fun and boisterous and perhaps inline with my own personal aesthetic. But i think my favorite is Summer Flowers because it is fresh, feminine and feels so springy to me and spring is my favorite time of the year. I am loving all of the flowers and the longer days lately!

What is your favorite part of the day?

Early morning for sure! I get up before anyone else and the house is quiet, except for Zipper's jingly collar. There is not a sound. I make myself coffee, get dressed and read all of my favorite blogs and just get so inspired. I seem to find new blogs that interest me daily and I marvel at all of the cool and creaive peopls out there I feel so grateful to be living in this era of connection and shared information. It truly is amazing Pardon my digression... :0)

What is your favorite color?

Aqau. It always has been some form of blue, but aqua will always be #1! When I buy things, like aqua cast iron pans and dishware, my hubby is worried that I will grow tired of the color and then we will be stuck with blue dishes, but he's wrong Aqua and I are monogamous. That's not to say that I don't love ther color combos, like yellow, chartreuse, grass green, or lavender, and red It's just when it comes down to one, aqau will always win

What is next on the horison for you?

My husband and I are reorganizing our whole apartment. We've switched the studio and the bedroom. We've rearranged the furniture in the living room.We are clearing the clutter with a vengence and we are gearing up for a grage sale this weekend. And even though it is a work in progress, and everything has to get messy before it is neat again, I already feel like we live in a new place. It is amazing how energizing the exercise has been, not to mention, a tremendous happiness boost!

But enought of the boring stuff (yawn) I am also working on a new fabric line!!! It will be announced this summer and available in stores next winter. I am so excited about it and I can't wait to post some peeks on my blog! And speaking of the blog, I also hope to start blogging more. It is one of my favorite things to do and it seems to be an all too often neglected task on my list.

I want to thank Liz (and her daughter, Rylie) for stopping by my blog! Rylie has been so generous and has choosen 8 fat quarters from her mom's Sugar Pop line to giveaway to one lucky winner.

Rules of the game: Leave a comment about your favorite color and you will be entered into the giveaway. You must leave your email address so that I can contact you if you are the winner.

The giveaway ends at midnight on Monday, April 4th!

Good Luck!

Until Next Time ... Happy Quilting!

Mini Fabric Mosaic

I gave birth to this SPUR of the moment idea

over the weekend.

It really came out of necessity

because it rained most of the weekend

and I needed a project to occupy my

Little Person while I

got some work done.

Once again, it is simple and didn't

require very much supervision.

It is also a great way to use up your

fabric scraps!


Supplies Needed:
  • Elmer's glue
  • Paint brush 
  • Fabric scraps
  • Freezer paper
  • Paper plate


Step 1:
  • Squirt the glue onto the paper plate.
  • Using the paint brush, "paint" the glue onto the  D-U-L-L side of the freezer paper.
  •  Place the fabric scraps onto the damp freezer paper.
  • Over lap the fabric pieces into a pleasing arrangement.
  • Add extra glue to the edges of the fabric if necessary.
  • Allow the project to dry.

Step 3:

  • Allow your artist to sign their work!

Once again, this is a simple idea

and you never know when you will need

a simple project to occupy

you Little Ones.

Until Next Time ... Happy Quilting!

Never Too Late For Love

February has come and gone

but it never too late

to share some love!

In between my crazy work schedule,

I was able to make this

mini quilt for a friend of mine.

My motto these days is:


(because I have so little time these days)

so I sat sat down and drew a SIMPLE

sketch of hearts.

Then I added the names of her children.

Next I transferred the sketch

to some Moda Bella Solid fabric.

Then I stitched away

This was the first time that I have every used this

embroidery thread

and I am love with it.

(It is soft as BUTTER!)

I added a 1" border using some solid fabric.

and I ended up with the sweetest, little mini quilt.

Here is the back:

Quilt Stats:

Finished Size- 10" X 12"
