Our featured designer this week is Jill Finley of Jillily Studio. She designs delightfully fun applique quilts that include beautiful flowers and bicycles! Her latest fabric collections, Park Drive and Jams & Jellies Basics, are in stores now.


We love her "Weekender" quilt. Jill loves the combination of red and black.





In addition to designing fabric and patterns, she just launched the Jillily Studio Sweet Shops Program. These stores that carry Jill's products will bear this logo on their doors or by their registers. It means that the stores carry my fabric, patterns, and notions. [Contact Jill for more information.]

Head over to Jill's blog. She has some more inspiring photographs and a giveaway for her Jams & Jellies collection. Good luck!

I haven't figured out exactly what I want to make this year for gifts. Last year I did snap sack quilts. I think this year might be potholders and oven mitts. I haven't ever made any of those, so it should be fun to try! Oh, and I hope to make candy to go with the presents.

Although I've been making two Christmas quilts in qal's this year, I haven't decided what to make as gifts. I'm sure I'll be inspired, usually at the last minute.

GranChris said...

I think my Christmas sewing will be simple this year potholders, moppines, placemats, kindle-ipad covers, coin purses, towels. Easy items like these. It's still 95 here, who can sew for Christmas?

Kimberlyne Jones said...

Love your Xmas bundle! Stocking for the kids this year? Wouldn't that be beautiful!?

Mary Ann said...

Lovely Christmas fabric and I am making a Christmas ornament quilt and I could use a few more fabrics

Mom C said...

I've been thinking very hard about a quilt for my DIL. She's had fabric for at least 5 years but can't decide on a pattern. So I think I'll just make one I like so she can have something until she finally decides. And I make nearly pairs of pjs for the family's Christmas eve pj parade. Last year several of my granddaughters wanted to help, that was fun.

Cheryl said...

Right now I am working on sewing dresses and aprons for kids in crisis for Christmas -- my favorite gifts to give to special people.

Lovely Christmas bundle. I think I'd turn it into a lap quilt, but it would also look lovely as a table topper or wall hanging. Oh, how I love Christmas!
