the honey pot quilt - free quilt pattern + kits available! (1)

hello, loves! i’m so pleased to share with you the quilt for my latest fabric collection, sweet as honey. the honey pot quilt is a free pattern (click here to download) that goes together quickly with machine piecing and no binding. because this design keeps the integrity of the hexagon shapes around the edges, the finished look is both unique and stunning.  the finished size of the quilt is 65″ x 70″ – perfect for your sofa or afternoon picnic!

diy bunting (2)

i’ve been wanting to make my own bunting banner ever since they became popular (so what is that.. like 2 years?), and this weekend i finally made it happen! it only took a couple of hours, and now i have several yards of bunting to pull out for birthdays, craft shows and special occasions. i’m sure there are tutorials all over the web, but this is just how i went about it. i also left the edges unfinished intentionally, so that as they fray the banner will get a vintage, shabby chic look. (you could also finish the flags and turn them before you insert them into your binding, using this same technique, if you prefer.)

i think with the addition of a few clear globe lights ($12.99 from target), the space really feels cozy and romantic. hooray!
