So I have this forever project. Not long after I started quilting I decided that I would make an EPP hexie quilt with one hexagon from each of the fabrics that I ever used in a project. I definitely don’t have a perfect record, but I’m doing pretty good. Its been my rule to add the hexagons completely randomly, but I’m making an exception for these. I love the way these fabrics make a rainbow too much to split them up. #epp#hexies#tattooedfabric#libselliott
I was absolutely scared to cut my treasured fabrics from Libs Elliott's lines. It was hard but I feel very wise to use them and have more fun with a table topper on my table than with fabric stashed in a closet.
I used each print of Tattooed plus two of Wildside which fit perfectly. Besides I left my black comfort zone and used the white line of True Love for a more springlike look. And there's a bit of fussy cutting on the border.

Before the month is over, I wanted to share the companion block I made for the first month of the #qp2018sewalong hosted by @thequiltersplanner . This idea was inspired by many other participants who shared their “sister blocks” here and in the FB group.
I plan to use the Modern Bliss layout, so I need 5 extra blocks. Simply rearranging the color placement gives this design a completely different look!
Oh my goodness @jleahc ! Thank you sooo much for my mini rebel! I am over the moon thrilled! All the extras were perfect too. My 6 year old also approves and said it is “epic”. 😀 Thank you also to @clintonmodern who sent me a fq bundle of #tattooedfabric (I actually won a prize) and to @lisataylor1982 for hosting the swap. #libselliottminiswap#swapteamwildside#igotmylibs
I totally had a photo shoot with my #libseliott 24" miniquilt, so bear with me: picture overload.
But I thought of you and tried to make you a detailed pic of the shimmer of these awesome fabrics. I love it, not in your face glittery, just perfect.
So, this is a reduced version of Libs Elliott's #doubletroublequilt (50% and not all the blocks) and I used nearly all of the fabrics in her #tattooedfabric series and true love for background and backing. The binding is from my favourite #agfdenim , I needed something to calm the whole thing down.
Quilting is totally inspired from what @karmaquilt did on @storli123 's version.
It'll be a total heartbreak to part with it, but as I discussed with a friend: I would never have made it if it wasn't for the swap. So, thanks, @lisataylor1982 for organizing an awesome swap and making me addicted to yet another fabric designer. 😉
I saw some fabulous makes out there, so go check #libselliottminiswap , it'll be worth your while.
Milestone quilt top almost finished. Just circle the number and day,week, month or year and snap picture for a record of child's growth. It's for my grandson. #milestonequilt @libselliott #tattooedfabric#babyquilt
It's hard to believe that it has been almost 12 months since I received an email from @molli_sparkles letting me know that I was on the list of 12 randomly drawn Queens for The Honey Pot Bee. I'm excited to finally share my block design with you. Swipe through to see which fabrics I'm using for my #thehoneypotbee quilt, and mock-ups of Star Catcher quilts using horizontal and on point placement.
I'd love to see your blocks. Please share using #starcatcherblock and tag me, @southbaybella. Please feel free to message me with questions or suggestions for improving the tutorial. Thanks for all the inspiration this year. Happy sewing! #agfpureelements#libselliott#tattooedfabric#truelovefabric#wildsidefabric#sewwiththebest#andoverfabrics
The road to published patterns is paved with unintended minis. That is how it goes, right? 😜 I discovered the Penrose triangle last week, and thought it might be good for a bee block I was designing. I had so much fun drawing this one out and sewing it up - partial seams and all. (After I finished mine, I stumbled upon an awesome FPP version by @nightingalequilts ) I decided to go a different direction with my bee block, but I'm excited to get this quilted and add it to my mini wall. #sewwiththebest#andoverfabrics#libselliott#tattooedfabric#truelovefabric#penrosetriangleblock
