Spring Ruffle Top


My last top for Spring Top Week. I was originally going to do Simplicity 3750 with this material, but as I was reading reviews for this pattern there seemed to be some complaints about the bust part being small. So my arm was twisted and I made Rae's fabulous Spring Ruffle Top. I like it! I shortened the strap by about an 1" but only because the fabric remnant of Amy Butler I was using was just a bit too short. I used Anna Maria Horner's Social Climber for the main part. I love this fabric. It is so pretty. I got it for an incredible deal at Fabric.com too. I think it was only $4.19 a yard! Crazy. I also took in the sides by about 3" as well for a better fit. I still need to make my Lotus cami, but I think it is going to wait until the summer, since...

I am going to be working on my first quilt! I am so excited. I have been reading, reading,reading, and I have finally gotten the guts to go try it. I bought some beautiful Neptune fabrics by Tula Pink. It is all washed and pressed and ready for cutting. I want to do something simple first so I am going to try Amy Butler's Brick Path pattern. I will let you know how it goes!


Also, some beautiful Flower Power by Jennifer Paganelli from Sew Love Fabrics. Total impulse buy. I am thinking skirts for the girls. It is just so pretty.

Last but not least, check of Philigry for a great giveaway of Amy Butler fabrics!

  5. The Brick Path pattern was my first quilt project, too ... and it's perfect for the 1st time quilter! Very easy, no seams to match up, and the end result is really beautiful. Of course, I am a huge Tula Pink fan and I LOVE your Neptune selections. Can't wait to see this one come together!
