homestead blog hop {plus a giveaway}

Hello everyone,

welcome to my stop celebrating release of Homestead fabric by Emily Isabella for Birch Fabrics.  

This adorable collection is available both as organic poplin and organic knit. It was my first time working with Birch organic poplin so I was not sure what to expect. I had no idea I was in for such a treat. This fabric is soft, drapes beautifully, and is a dream to sew with. Plus, it's organic!!! Which I really, really love.


I chose Daisy Bed Sun and Daisy Bed Storm for my projects. I combined these beautifully soft flowers on yellow background with solid gray fabric for the front of my pillow, and saved the navy print for the back.



I quilted both front and back of the pillow cover in a grid  pattern, my lines are about 1/2" apart as I love the texture this kind of quilting adds to finished projects.


And, since I still had some fabric left once my pillow was made, I went ahead and made a Lola pouch (pattern here) and the most adorable wooden base pincushion (inspired by this beauty).  I so love how these turned out.


♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Birch Fabrics is giving away 1 yard of each fabric (either poplin or knit) to one lucky winner. Please use a widget below to enter.


Also, I hope you visit these talented peeps to see their gorgeous Homestead makes.

  18. These designs would work well with a knitting theme, so I'd make some baskets for holding individual projects, a bag or two for to-go carrying, needle organizers ... things like that. And if enough was left, a wall hanging for my sewing room (dining room) would be nice. Thanks for the give-away. ktsquiltdreams ATgmail DOTcom

  32. I tried to comment using my WordPress ID (http://talltalesfromchiconia.wordpress.com) but it wouldn't let me, so I've used Google Plus instead. I love those Daisy Patch fabrics, and the yellow/grey combination is particularly lovely. Poplin's a beautiful fabric for crisp, accurate piecing. Cute pouch, too! Some of the fabrics will go into my postage stamp quilt, some will become EPP hexies, some will become cushions - there's such a great variety I can foresee all kinds of uses.
