new cake fabric

confections / ann kelle

I have a confession, I draw sweets because I can’t eat sweets all the time. I would LOVE to eat cake for breakfast, everyday-all day, but sadly I can’t. So, one day I sat down and drew cakes. All sorts of cakes. Cakes with chocolate. Cakes with strawberries. Cakes with sprinkles. You get the point. Lots of cakes. This new print is part of the Confections collection and ships to stores this month. And now I want to eat cake.

banner day quilt in Quilt Trends

April 16, 2014

quilt trends / ann kelle

I was pretty excited when I saw the pictures of my Urban Flotologie prints in the Spring Issue of Quilt Trends.  I knew it was coming, but I had no idea it would be this awesome!  So bright and cheery!  Sarah Price made this cuddly quilt, which is both quick and easy. She used my Urban Flotologie and Remix flannel prints in the quilt. To get a copy of the magazine for the quilt instructions, head here or here. The Fat Quarter Shop has also put together a kit for the quilt, which you can purchase here.

fabric sighting: coin purse

April 09, 2014

telephone coin purse / ann kelle

I went out of town a couple of weeks ago and left behind several of my little pouches and bags. The upside to this, is that it gives me an excuse to get brand spankin’ new bags, like this cutie coin purse by Hot4HandBags. This coin purse features my telephones. See more cute goods here.

(p.s. Every time I see this my telephone print, I can’t help but sing Mr. Telephone Man)

So, I’m thinking it’s going to be a great weekend! Here are a couple of other things I’m thankful for this week:

free tutorial: baby booties

March 18, 2014

baby booties tutorial ann kelle

I have a new free tutorial to share with you today. I worked with Andrea of Knitty Bitties to make these cute little baby booties. They’re made from my Remix flannel with coordinating solids. They would make the sweetest little gift for a baby. One of my dear friends just had a little boy, so I went over and took a couple of photos with him in the shoes. They were a tad big on him, as they’re made to fit 3-6 months. Andrea has a “visual tutorial” over on her blog, but you can also download a written tutorial here.

ombre baby quilt

March 10, 2014

 

ann kelle ombre baby quilt

If you’re new to the blog, you may not have known that my best color friend is pink. I decided it would be fun to design a quilt based around my love of pink, with my happy clouds on the back. There are about a million different shades of pink. But, I used the Kona solids card to pick out my favs. It was hard narrowing it down, but somehow I managed.  Miracles do happen. A special thanks go Brooke for making the quilt. To make your own sweet quilt, head here for a tutorial.

daylight savings by ann kelle

Every week I share things I’m thankful for in a column called “Hello, Friday.” Whether it’s a list, a story or a picture, always at the heart of it is thankfulness. Here’s some things I’m thankful for this week:

How was your first week in March? To welcome us Tennesseans to March, the weather decided to give us some sleet and snow. Thankfully, my commute is short (a couple of feet).  I drew a little reminder for you this week . . . don’t forget to set your clocks forward an hour. Yep, it’s Daylight Savings this weekend. I’m not really looking forward to losing an hour, but I’m definitely looking forward to the sun being out longer.  Here’s a couple of things I’m thankful for this week:

- my best friend is feeling better
- God’s direction
- talking with old friends
- the color yellow
- spring is just around the corner
- 3 snow days for my Mama (her school system typically ALWAYS has school, so this was a treat for her)
- new ideas

boombox pillow tutorial (+ more)

boombox pillow tutorial / ann kelle

Today I’m happy to share with you these fun music inspired pillows. As soon as I designed my Beatbox collection, I thought it would be fun to have a boom box pillow. I worked with the brilliant Erica of Kitchen Table Quilting in constructing the pillow and writing a tutorial. She did an great job, wouldn’t you say? And after she finished the boom box pillow, she decided (because she’s awesome) to also make a cassette pillow. How cool is that! Get the tutorials here: boom box tutorial and cassette tape tutorial.

Not sure if you can see it in this picture, but Erica did a fabulous job with the quilting  . . . the attention to detail is just perfect!
