I had some fun yesterday making the Roosting Hen Pot Holder which was the other project from the Annie’s Kit Clubs fat quarter bundle that I wrote about in this post.

This cute little project was quick to make and it’s perfect for lifting hot pot lids off of pots on the stove. I made a quick video of myself making it.

It’s been another busy week in the sewing room for me! I have many mask panels left from 2020 as most of the panel orders came in after the big mask rush on Etsy. Now I am working on using them to make other things! My most popular post on Instagram this week was this Devon Pouch that I made with a Ruby Star Society Mask Panel as the main feature panel of the bag.
I have six more Devon Pouches in the works. They’re cut and interfaced so now they’re on deck for sewing. Meanwhile I made three more pouches with mask panels of another simpler style and jazzed them up with cork on the corners using my cork scraps. These three are listed in the Zipper Pouches Section of my Etsy shop.
I did a small shop update of knitting bags and added four new medium sized Finch Bucket Bags to my Etsy shop. I made a hyperlapse video of the making one of them.

My latest YouTube videos for Etsy sellers / e-commerce sellers are:
I made the adorable Chicken Walk Oven Mitt first from a two piece set of patterns in the kit. It took me about an hour and a half to make the project. I will be making the Roosting Hen hot pad next.

The Fat Quarter Club is a quick and affordable way to build a stash for quality quilting fabrics. Sign up and receive 50% off your first month. I received 12 fat quarters plus the project booklet and was very pleased with the quality. Six of the fat quarters were from Moda Fabrics and Six were from Free Spirit Fabrics. Each month you receive six fat quarters (not 12) but there were samples for two months in the package I received.
This quilt was part of a custom order where my customer requested a two sided quilt. They wanted one side to be a Canadian flag and the other side to be an American flag. When I posted the quilt on Instagram I received request for a pattern. The Canadian flag quilt pattern was posted about here and today I am posting about the American flag quilt pattern.
This quilt is made up of two inch and four inch patchwork squares. The stars on the flag are optional. There are options given in the pattern for alternatives to the stars such as blue stripes. I used a combination of navy fabrics including star spangled fabric and pieced stars as it was a request from my customer to have some pieced stars in the quilt.
Also, don’t miss our Victoria Day long weekend sale! Our shop is on sale 15% off and today is the last day. So many gorgeous Rifle Paper Co floral bags and wallets have been added to the shop in the past couple of weeks! Happy Victoria Day!
Daydreams of Quilts was very pleased to be invited to be a contributor to the Redfin blog article How to Create the Ultimate Crafting Space for Kids. We have three very creative children who love to craft. During the pandemic they have been even more crafty than usual.
Our kids have enjoyed making paper houses, pipe cleaner animals, model tanks (in the case of our teenage son) and perler bead crafts to name a few. Our daughters each want to open an Etsy shop like their mom but we want them to hold off just a few more years.
This quilt is inspired by my love for being at home with my family. It is a nice size at 72″ x 72″. The blocks are big blocks at 16″ so it doesn’t feel like it takes forever to make.
I used all Bonnie and Camille for Moda fabrics in my quilt from several different lines. I am very pleased to say that the entire white background was made from scraps leftover from making Christmas stockings so there was very little waste there.
I used 64 flannel layer cake squares, also all Bonnie and Camille fabrics, for my backing. It is so soft and cozy!
This new pattern is 20% off in my Etsy shop through Monday March 22nd.
