Oh Happy Hay Fabric by Sandy Gervais from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

I am sew excited to be working with a new line from Riley Blake Designs. Sandy Gervais is the creator of this whimsical line of Oh Happy Day fabric. This line was inspired by Sandy’s love for sunny days, “The bright sunny colors make me happy!” It features reds, yellows, blues, and greens. The way that those colors pop with the dark black background is perfect! An example of this is the main print. The line is bright and cheerful with inspirational quotes and is full of texture.

Sparkling Table Runner Tutorial from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

New Year’s is right around the corner. Meaning the end of the year is less than 20 days away. Since I will be spending New Year’s hunkered down at home (in my bubble), I decided it would be fun to create an easy and fun project. SO… my New Year’s gift to you is a tutorial on how to make this Sparkling Table Runner. 

Spice up your table with a handmade table runner and decor from Crate and Barrel
Handmade Table Runner

The Sparkling Table Runner features large flying geese made up of half square triangles. For me, it is the perfect icon for the transition from 2020 to 2021 because I can’t wait ...

The Farmers Market bag – DIY from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

We have stepped into fall here in Tucson and the mornings are so nice. This year, life has been truly altering and there are so many things that I miss doing. I love Farmers Markets! On Saturdays when I can find time to run, I like to park at the Farmers Market so I can check out a few booths and get a little exercise in. All before I start sewing. These cooler days have me wanting to get out and about, so I made the perfect bag to take shopping as soon as I am mentally ready to get ...

The Invasion of the Basic Fabric from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

I don’t know what is happening to me. For almost a decade I hadn’t made one single quilt using all solids fabrics. Now however, well . . . I just finished this quilt using Shades, a Basic Fabric (tonal) solid. I am currently working on a quilt that uses shot cotton (a woven solid). At the beginning of the year, I finished a quilt with Confetti Cottons, another basic fabric that is a true solid. Last year, I made a queen size quilt for Bluprint with what else? All solids. Even now, at this very moment, I have a pile of ...

A Place For Everything Bag – Tips & Tricks from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

For a couple of months now, I have been dreaming of a way to organize my sewing machine’s odds and ends. The accessory case that came with my Bernina broke after falling off a table many years ago. Although only one of the doors from the case will not stay put, I haven’t wanted to use it because it isn’t very stable. I thought about buying something like the Sew Stack Machine Feet Box but decided that I could just make my own. I bought a pattern By Annie called A Place For Everything, then found the ...

Star Watch: a sunny quilt featuring Calico Days by Lori Holt from Carried Away Quilting


I’m popping in today to share a cheerful, farm-fresh version of my Star Watch pattern, this time featuring the Calico Days collection by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs.


Sewn up in a sunny collection like this, Star Watch becomes a happy, scrappy jelly roll quilt. Simple log cabins provide the foundation for the quilt, while a row of sunny stars adds a playful twinkle.


Calico Days was released by Lori Holt a few years ago, but she has numerous collections that are just as darling. Any vintage-inspired fabric lines would shine with this pattern.


For my Calico Days ...
