DIY – Bunny Tail Napkin Ring from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Bunny Tail Napkin Ring

Growing up in my family, Easter was always one of the best holidays! When I was younger, my parents’ friends would host a wonderful backyard brunch after church. We would all eat delicious food, the children would hunt for eggs, and the event would end with a water balloon fight. My sister took over this holiday brunch so I have so enjoyed watching my nieces and nephews trample through the yard searching for eggs. This month, I received a few cuts of soft pastel linens from Riley Blake Designs, and my mind started spinning with all of the projects I ...

Santa Snow Globe Wall Hanging – Christmas Project from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

News flash — We have less than two weeks until Christmas!!! AHHHHHH!! It’s the perfect time to show you what I have been working on. Ever since I made my Peppermint Way Table Runner, as I cut out the English paper piecing parts, I saw the hole of the ring as a snow globe. The peppermint ring had the perfect base for the globe, too. As I was working with the pinks and red fabrics from Jill Howarth and her Way Up North line for Riley Blake Designs, there was one Santa scene that kept speaking the word snow globe ...

Christmas Projects – Santa Doorknob Bells from Brown Bird Designs Quilts


Guess what? It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… and Christmas decor is popping up everywhere. This weekend, while I was searching for some fun items to use in photos, I was totally sidetracked with a Michaels Christmas sale. A whopping 70% off all Christmas items, plus I had a 20% off my entire purchase. BAM. That’s how I roll! I love coupons. Wholeheartedly, I jumped into their marketing trap and came home with a few Christmas projects. I wanted to show you these shabby chic Doorknob Bells I got at Michaels. They are super cute the ...

The Peppermint Way Quilt & Table Runner from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

I am totally smitten over a new line by Jill Howarth called Way Up North. She created it for Riley Blake Designs and it’s absolutely adorable! I love it all! This is a great line for fussy cutting because it has cute snowmen, whimsical Santas, peppermints, snowflakes, and so much more. Having it in my sewing room has led to daydreams filled with merry carolers on streets decorated with Christmas lights and drinking from mugs of yummy peppermint cocoa. A street I have been calling Peppermint Way. I know, I know it’s only June, but this girl has ...

Quilting for Others from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

I am a firm believer in karma. Positive karma is something I am always looking to add into my piggy bank. There is so much negativity that it is good for my soul to send out some love and warmth into the world. Typical ways that I collect positive karma are Quilting for Others and hosting giveaways for my readers. A few years back I created a “Giving Challenge” in November where I did both for the whole month. Today I want to give you ideas on quilty projects you can make for others and locations where you can donate ...
