Learning Fabric Design

Today I started an online course to learn about fabric design.  I've just started it so I can't rate it yet but I think it's going to be a steep learning curve.  I haven't worked with Adobe Illustrator, so there's that too.  I'm really excited about learning something new.  This will be one of my many summertime projects.  I'm getting ready to submit my first assignment.  Kind of fun to say that again. :)

Baby Baseball

I had so much fun picking out the fabric for this quilt.  My cousin is having a baby boy in July and the daddy-to-be is a big baseball fan.  I used the Four Square Fun by Teri Staats for Sweet Treasures. 
It's funny, we hope our kids will have similar interests with us.  I remember when my son was born I had all kinds of baseball outfits and baseball toys.  I forced him to play baseball for 3 years and he hated it.  Now he has absolutely no common interests with me, he's a 15-year-old boy, fast cars, gaming, girls...the order of importance varies each hour.

Now let's hope this baby likes baseball...or it doesn't matter yet since mommy and daddy will decide for him for the first few years.
I quilted with a diagonal straight line stitch with red thread.  The backing is the navy baseball fabric.

Planner Stickers

I love decorating my planner with stickers but what's even better is decorating it with FREE stickers. I love the work Jessica does on and she shares her work.   A couple weeks ago, she shared a new sample of stickers...SEWING stickers!
I took a picture of the stickers I printed so I could show you the fun work she shares but hop over to her page and see for yourself.  Lots of cuteness!
