My Favorite Things Fabric Tour

Monday, March 27, 2023

I have been a fan of Elea Lutz' designs since I first discovered her in 2015.  
Her first fabric line was Milk, Sugar, and Flower (which was absolutely adorable; 
I'm sad I missed out on it!)  However, I did end up making a 
Christmas quilt with her second fabric line, Little Joys.

 Today I get to share some projects I made with her
most recent fabric line, My Favorite Things.  It has that 
sweet, vintage style that Elea is known for.  And she is now a designer for 
Poppie Cotton which I think is a match made in heaven!

As you can see the line is full of soft pinks, blues, buttery yellows, creamy whites
and tans...with a little pop of red!  Such a cute color palette!  There are lots of 
different florals in various scales and one of my favorite things - text prints!  
But the main print features many of Elea's favorite
things (which I'm sure most of us can relate to.)  See THIS post
on Elea's blog for more pictures, the inspiration behind this collection, 
the darling coordinating cheater print, and a free mini
quilt pattern that Elea is offering to members of her new Facebook group. 

The first project I made with My Favorite Things
was a throw-size version of my Rough and Tumble pattern.
It comes with instructions for 5 different sizes!

I had so much fun playing with 5" squares of
My Favorite Things + a few solid fabrics 
and a tan with a white dot background fabric.

I love this pattern because the blocks go together really quickly
and there is no sashing!  So it's a very fast make, overall.
I bound it with the red Good Measure grid fabric from my fabric line, 
Treasured Treads with Poppie Cotton and backed it in a
large green gingham fabric from Riley Blake.

My friend, Jen Ostler in Highland, UT quilted it for me.
She did a fantastic job, as always!  The quilting pantograph 
she used is called Fluffy Lumps.  It's a new-to-me design
that I thought complimented the scalloped/floral print in 
My Favorite Things really well!  She also quilted a tiny heart 
on the quilt for me to find - in a little game of quilters' hide and seek.  
Can you see it?

I just couldn't get enough of My Favorite Things so I decided
to make one more project with the remaining fabric I had.  But don't
worry, it was a super fast baby quilt that just takes a couple of hours to put together.

I've had many requests for this pattern called, Big Baby.
It was originally in my book, Vintage Vibe
but it's out of print now so I decided to make Big
Baby into an individual pattern which you can find in my shop, HERE.

The pantograph is called Cartwheels and the quilt finishes at 38" square.
It's a big-block baby quilt version of my Scrap Jar Stars pattern.
It goes together so fast and looks cute in any colorway!
Perfect for gift-giving!

I love this fabric line and am so thankful that I got to be a part of
the My Favorite Things Fabric Tour.  My Favorite Things is in stores now
so be sure to run out and grab some before it's all gone!
