Sweet nursery prints and paybacks.


Organization, linen and a sweet nursery print go together like ABC's and 123's right?  Perhaps it was the fact that these little fat quarters came in the cutest set of three. That made them perfect for this project. That and linen is one of my favorite fabrics to work with because it holds its shape so well.  Put a nursery print on it and I am in hook line and sinker...


Vintage looking to boot.


After trying out so many different patterns I have settled on this one.  This patterns offers six different sizes and once I played with it I really enjoyed how it went together.  


It was easy to alter the pattern by adding a 2 inch band of the lining fabric to the outer fabric.


But I didn't just stop there...


These sweet faces needed a center stage.


 Hexagon appliques in one...two...and three arrangements.


They nestle in nicely and package up even better.  

Now, I need to get these across the pond to the sweet Miss Fee?  This fabric reminds me so much of all the animals that call her house their home...thank you again for my wonderful blocks.

Renee, I love these! So so cute! Beyond cute! I was wondering if you might be game to make another set for me? I am redoing my daughter's room and these would be perfect. I can pay you or we can do a trade from my Etsy shop if you want...no problem if not. I also have 4 different prints of pillow covers that are from the Cath Kidston shop, and I have a few of each print, I could trade you a couple of those as well. They are 16x16 brand new. I can email you pics. Let me know what you think...
:)
Thanks!

Oh Renee,
Where did you ever find that sweet storybook fabric???? I try to stay away from the fabric in stores as I just would buy and buy if this is the kind I saw.....why you ask? I don't sew, but I sure do love to look at it! :) Again, you are an incredible woman with a needle!
