Gina & Leah Quilt

I posted these patterns a while ago in anticipation of this project I did with my neighbor/friend Gina. At the time I said we weren't going to make a quilt, but then when it came down to it that's what we ended up making. She did most of the making, really, because in real life I'm a reluctant seamstress and she's the expert quilter here. I did the patterns though!

Dylan took these beautiful photos and I'm so happy with how everything came out. We're planning on making some patchwork pillows together, likely this summer, so stay tuned if you're looking for something that's not quite as big an investment. The quilt's for sale in my Etsy here, along with some extra photos.

One of my internet BFFs, Tricia, is putting on a holiday pop-up shop with her real life BFF Carly and asked me to contribute something to sell there. Their shop is aptly named Fangirl, and will take place next month (I think) in Austin, TX and also online. For now, they've launched a great blog with all sorts of pictures and writing on the things they're fangirling over.

I painted this sunflower bouquet for the tote, because what else besides flowers really, and Tricia screen printed all of them by hand. I love how they turned out, and I'm so impressed with her printing skills. I don't like screen printing, so I'm extra pleased.

The coolest thing happened - someone painted a cake inspired by one of my patterns!

and, my original for reference:

More photos on Abby Galloway's blog here. I really wish I could bake with her! It reminds me a lot of the cookies that Rachel decorated with her friend Julia of AzĂșcar Pastel. So fun to put drawings in places I never thought I could put them.
