Welcome to our humble little stop along the Strawberry Biscuit Blog Hop!
We fell head over heels for this fabric at first sight, and
for the past few months, we’ve had the pleasure of working with the sweet Elea Lutz on six whimsical projects she designed for her very first book, Pretty Playtime! (Yay, Elea!)
If you follow us on Instagram, you may have caught a peek
during our #PrettyPlaytime photoshoot, but today, we’re getting you up close
and personal with each and every one.
With Pretty Playtime, Elea dazzled us with her fanciful
landscape of darling critters, candy-colored cottages and friendly
fairies. While we are usually all about straight up piecing, she lured us
into this crazy world of embellishments with embroidery, applique, buttons and
ric rac – and it turned out so, so perfectly!!
She started with Little Bow Sweet, and those sweet pink
hearts swept us right off our feet!
The Knock Knock, Who’s There? quilt followed – pretty houses
adorned with pieced borders and buttons for doorknobs. Imagine selecting
just the right buttons for each house with your littles!
The Furry Friends quilt followed. This pack is hosting
a cozy slumber party, and you’re invited. We love their little faces,
especially those heart-shaped noses! (Snouts or noses? Oh well!)
The Tooth Fairy pillow holds a little secret. She
comes dressed for the job with a tiny pocket for her goodies! And check
out her cute pigtails.
The Duck Duck Tablerunner comes swimming up behind – a Mama
duck trailed by her ducklings is irresistible, to say the least!
Pretty Playtime’s crowning glory is the Garden Fairy Sampler. It combines elements from all of the other projects into its
whimsical, wonderful tale! Have fun making up stories for each and every
block. The Ducks and Bears are having a tea party… the Tooth Fairy visits
with the dragonflies among the tulips… the Butterflies are collecting their
nectar in a ribboned handbasket… let your imagination run free! We even have a kit for the Garden Fairy Sampler available for purchase - take a peek!
won’t be long before Pretty Playtime lands in our hot little hands, but if you
reserve your copy before it arrives, you’ll also receive Elea’s Little Swan
pattern for free, so don’t dilly dally!
