size matters moda blog hop

welcome to my turn on the size matters blog hop!

my block is the dutchman puzzle block  (free download!)

BUT as you can see i decided to go even BIGGER for my final block:
i used the ombre fabrics in the simply style line for moda, and used a white bella solid as the background.
i quilted it with 50 wt aurifil white thread using simple straight lines.
oh no worries, did you think i was all look what i made and i'm not going to show you how to make it?? nope,  i didn't leave you hanging!
i made sure to do step by step on how to make this cute quilt!



now i've shown you what i did with my block...i made it bigger.
so i have a confession to make.
most of you already know it but might as well air it out again.

i'm short. *hangs her head in defeat*
and from what i gather as life goes on, i'll get even shorter. *sigh*

i grace at 5'1" but people say i'm exaggerating because they think i'm shorter.
i'm pretty sure you can give me the stupid 1" if i'm really 5' just let it go already okay? i mean it's a freaking inch.
overreacting you think i'm being? well fine.
here's the confession part:
i wear heels like ALL THE TIME. (minus when i'm wearing flip flops, but i've been known to wear wedge flip flops as well)
i even wear them at home when no one is around. i like that i can reach cabinets without having to climb on the counters, i like how my legs look longer than tater tots, i like that i feel like not everyone is talking to a small child when they talk to me...
oh go ahead and say it! but i don't care if you tell me i'm going to have bunions or hurt my back or start tripping (uh, have you not read my blog, i trip and fall for a hobby) nothing new there.
nope, i'll wear my darn 3-5 inch heals/platforms even when i'm having to drive a rascal!

hey you know what?

that's the plan! i'll wear 5" heals (ahem perhaps some stripper shoes as well) when i'm in my late 90's cause i'll be strolling around in a rascal anyways, and if i aint walking on em...they aint hurting my feet.
so just so you know, i'm going to be a 90 year old 5" heel wearing sassy little thing riding a rascal. because.
 i.
can.
till then i guess i'll just have to suffer walking in heels.
okay here's the rest of the crew doing the blog hop!

Other than the quilt you have blogged about today which I'm in total love with, I like the "I Heart You" Pattern! Thanks for the giveaway!

Chris said...

I think your Barn Dance quilt pattern is lovely. I appreciate the 'negative' or open spaces of the modern quilts.

Renee said...

I love your Just Dandy baby quilt! So cute.

I love the Bloom pattern, but I must say your Dutchman's Puzzle is wonderful! Thanks for the inspiration.

Donna said...

So many great patterns that it's hard to choose but......I like Hopscotch best. The Dutchman quilt is smashing...so graphic.

Rebecca said...

I've been wanting the i heart you pattern for a while, but told myself I wasn't allow to buy anything til I finished the long list of projects I already have going. Close second is the barn dance pattern--that is eventually going to be a gift for my mom. =)

Amber said...

I love so many of you patterns, but "Bloom" is one I've admired for a long time.

Kristy said...

I have loved your HOUNDSTOOTH pattern since the first time I saw it. soardkgatfusedotnet

Violet said...

Hmmm... I'd have to say Kaleidoscope is my favorite! I love the traditional feel with the bright modern fabrics. Thanks for this opportunity!

Gwen said...

It is hard to choose a favorite, among all the great patterns,it would
have to be Kalidescope. Very intreging to see how it all fits together. Thank for the chance to
win.

susiefloozie said...

I love the I Heart You pattern. It would be perfect for my also-very-short mother's headboard. Maybe I could make the quilt and give HER a pair of 5" heels! Wouldn't that just make her day??!!

Stacy Taylor said...

I can't decide between Bloom and Barn Dance, they're both gorgeous...so if I was a winner, I'd let you surprise me! I love your stuff! :) And I wish I could sew a straight line...that's so darn difficult...lol...but I sure try.

Terri U said...

Confetti or hounds tooth would be my pick.

Sallie said...

The color block zipper pouches.

Marsha Jean said...

BLOOM is so pretty...make it my pick. But, the turkey is a hoot! What made you decide to design a fabric turkey?

michelle kozak said...

I love your houndstooth quilt pattern I have to make a baby quilt for my sister she is going to be a first time grandma. It would look great with your fabric like the one in black and white.

Gill said...

Thanks for a great giveaway!
I love your confetti quilt!

Nupur said...

I had to LOL because I am 5 feet tall and always "lie" or stretch the truth and say I am 5'1'' :) Unlike you, I never wear high heels- can't walk in em.

I adore The Favorite Bag and The Banner Quilt from all your patterns! Hard to choose though.

Pat said...

Barn Dance for sure is my favorite. Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping i'm lucky enough to win.

LJ said...

lol I understand about size cuz I'm just skirting 5'2" now and I used to be over 5'3"!!! You go girl and do the 5" heels; that's not a doable thing for me. :) I like lots of your patterns but think Kaleidoscope is my favorite. BTW, I love this block/quilt you've made for the hop; perfectly wonderful colors.

Connie Thomas said...

Wow so hard to choose, barn dance, bubble and bloom, your bags abby and chelshea oh my and you want me to choose one!!! I'm 5'2" and so agree with you. Take heart were in this together...

Ann in NC said...

Chosing one favorite is hard! If forced to select one, Kaleidoscope is calling my name! Enjoy wearing heels!

JANET said...

I like the Bloom pattern. Kaleidoscope is nice too. So many patterns to choose from. Thank you for the giveaway!

Hildy said...

Don't worry I'm also not the tallest person (5'5") but honestly I'm rather a bit on the short side than too tall.
I love your kaleidoscope pattern and your block.
hildy(at)ebertzeder(dot)de

Jacklynn said...

I like the just dandy baby quilt - a really cute dandylion. Thats so cute! Thanks for the give away!

ldylatuna said...

Your Bloom quilt has got to be the cutest quilt I have ever seen. I love it.
Your bags are awesome too! Thanks for the chance to win. Size does matter and you are just the right size...it is your heart that is 6 ft tall!
Love,
Mary ldylatuna@att.net

April Shae said...

Your kaleidoscope pattern is still one of those patterns that I lust over!! And I completely fell you on being short. I totally stretch my neck everytime just to reach 5'1" on a good day! SHORT PEOPLE OF THE WORLD UNITE!!!

kelsabel said...

My favorite pattern is 'Bloom'. So pretty. Love the colors too. Thanks for the opportunity to win the fabric. :)

Scattered Threads said...

Nice!!! Love the turquoise…It makes the quilt pop!

Miss Busy Bee, Debbie said...

You mean I have to pick JUST one!!! LOL, well if you insist, I'd have to say Barn Dance is my favorite, modern simplicity but with a dynamic effect, LOVE it!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Barn Dance would be my pick - thank you for sharing today. The Dutchman's Puzzle is my heritage block.

Book'n Mom said...

The Just Dandy baby quilt is adorable!

allierae said...

I love, love, love the Chelsea Bag. Pick me! :)

Lisa Lisa said...

Love the block! I'm also 5'1"....for real! Actually, I think the last time I was measured I was 0.5 inch shorter :( I wore high heels for a long time until my 40s....but I like your idea of wearing heels in your 90s! My favorite pattern in your shop is the beach bag. A friend of mine made one for me, and I LOVE it!!!

Laura Fedewa said...

I LOVE your kaleidoscope quilt and have been eyeing it for a while, but it would be even better if I won it! (hint, hint pick me!!)

Diana said...

Love the block and the color all your patterns are neat but would love to try the Confetti pattern, think it would make a great baby quilt(new grand baby due in Nov.) thanks for a great blog, neat fabrics and the giveaway.

Sharon S said...

I like the Bloom pattern. I really like all of the patterns you made with your ombre fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

Anonymous said...

Hmm. I'm just under 5 feet, but am perfectly happy that size. Except when I want something on a high supermarket shelf.
Love your fabric, and would love to have your fabric bracelet pattern. So individual and interesting. Thanks for the chance to win.

Gina S. said...

The Chelsea Bag! I made it with your fabric in same color. It was for my daughter for christmas last year and she still talks about how much she loves it.

Bonnie said...

I love the Just Dandy quilt - when I was a kid I used t so enjoy blowing the dandelion fuzz around. Now I HATE the darn things in my yard... no doubt perpetuated by people like I was, blowing them around!

Susan Smith said...

I love the Kaleidoscope pattern but the Bloom is right up there with it! Thanks for the chance to win!

Kathleen OGrady said...

Gosh you have so many great patterns it is really hard to choose one. But I kept going back to the Bloom pattern so I will pick that one. I love the Dutchman Puzzle block. It is almost like an optical illusion and I could just stare at it for a long time.
I am short also, 5'1" and I don't let that 1 inch go unnoticed. My closet is full of 3" heals and wedge slides. Gotta do what ya gotta do. Thanks for the chance to win!

B. said...

Houndstooth by far! Love the simplicity and the classic style!

Miss Jean said...

I love the I Heart You pattern!

Janice said...

for sure my favourite is kaleidoscope!

Alison Christensen said...

hueisei said...

I like the Kaleidoscope quilt pattern!

Mary said...

It's either the Hampton Weekend Bag or the Beach Bag. I just can't decide cuz they're both so darn cute!

Live a Colorful Life said...

I love hopscotch and bloom

M.W. said...

I love hopscotch
Shawn

Jen said...

Houndstooth is my fav! And kaliedoscope. Thanks! Fingers crossed!

eclectic-el said...

Do you know how your brain goes, "Ding Ding Ding", when you spot something that simply put, is "just for you!"? That is what happened when I saw your "Little Sprout" pattern which is awesome!!

btw, I got into a huge discussion/argument with the tech at my doctor's office all over my height measurement. I told her that I had been 5'5" since highschool and that, "I WAS NOT 5'3"!!. Now, I am 62 years old, but really.....shrinking two whole inches?? Bottom line, she gave me 1/4", probably to shut me up, and it did. My thinking was that everyone I hang with didn't seem taller so I must still be 5'5". Not. They are shrinking too! When my knees were replaced, I should have had the surgeon put "extensions" in there with the new joints. Loved your story about height and keep rocking those 5 inch heel/platforms, good for you girly!! Ellen

Shannon Conner said...

I love everything in your shop, but I've been wanting to make "the favorite bag" for like forever, so I'm picking that as my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway! Love reading your blog!

Anonymous said...

Anne M - I love puzzles! Thanks for the inspiration and the challenge - my mind is sorting fabrics for this block.

I love your Banner quilt and your fabric....but especially enjoyed your story today. You paint quite the mental image of a 90 yr. old with heels riding a rascal.

Brenda said...

I love all of your patterns, but your Bloom and Kaleidoscope quilts are my favorites!! And I love your fabric lines, too....got a nice package in the mail with yardage last week, and my fingers are itching to sew it into something lovely :)

Paige said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bloom pattern and the kaleidoscope pattern!! They are adorable!

The Marlatt's said...

I love your Confetti quilt pattern. I think I could manage that one:)

bdaiss said...

I'll give you that 1". Could be worse: we tease my husband's grandma that she should be using a booster seat when she drives (4'8"). :)

I adore your bloom quilt. And the flying dutchman. (Well, I adore ALL of your patterns. These two just happen to be at the top of my to-do list.)

sera fina said...

Little Sprout and the Abby tote are my favorites! But I really like Bloom too. Thanks for the chance to win some fabric.

Melissa Corry said...

The Abbey Tote is so adorable!!

lovetoquilt said...

Have to say, I love the Kaleidoscope pattern! Thanks for the chance!

Lindsey said...

Favorite pattern? That's easy: houndstooth! I've been lusting after that one for a couple years now (well, as long as it's been out)! Thanks for the giveaway!

lindseyjunk@sbcglobal.net

Sonia B said...

I love them all, but I really want to make the "I Heart You" pattern. Now you just have to convince Moda to reprint the pink ombré. Thanks for the chance.

Lynne said...

I have too many favorites. But I'll say the I heart you pattern. Thanks.

KarenAZ said...

Bloom! I love it. Of course, the braided pillow also calls to me.

Bonnie Pfrimmer said...

I like your block...I am a sucker for teals. I have always liked your Chelsea Bag pattern and one of these days I will make it. Thanks for sharing how to make your block..

MoeWest said...

Your Houndstooth Quilt pattern is my favourite! Thanks for the giveaway and the Ombre quilt is wonderful!

Michelle Folkerts said...

I just love your Kaleidoscope pattern. It's really neat that you live in Iowa now like we do. Thanks for the chance to win some fabric and patterns.

Bri Loftis said...

There's nothing wrong with being short! And there's nothing wrong with wearing 5" heels either or even stripper shoes. Go for it!! All of us would change 1 or 2 or 3 things about our body if we could! I love your patterns - very creative! For a quilt I would pick Bloom and for a non-quilt, well I have never seen a turkey and vegetables made out of fabric before. How creative and wonderful! It is too cute! I think it would be fun to have people over for Thanksgiving and let them smell the turkey and then serve the fabric one. :) No, just kidding! Thanks for the giveaway!

Kitty said...

I've loved Houndstooth forever but now Bloom and Kaleidoscope are tops on my list. Thanks for the giveaway and pattern!

Tiffany said...

I think I still like your Bloom quilt the best! Being short is no fun sometimes isn't it? I hate never being able to see what is going on when I'm in a large crowd. :(

Brooke @ little b quilts said...

I love kaleidoscope! And, I totally have to make that Dutchman quilt!

Hopscotch is great! Funny about the Rascal!

tammik said...

I love your spin on thebaby quilts. To pick a favorite, I can't!

Pat said...

I absolutely love the turkey and the cake! What fun! I also really like the I heart quilt in shades of pink. I'm still smiling about that turkey tho!!!!!!

Bonnie58 said...

I really like your kaleidoscope pattern and the houndstooth pattern. They are both gorgeous. thanks so much for sharing.

Jenny said...

I read to the bottom, I read to the bottom, w00t w00t! My favorite pattern (since I have the houndstooth) is the Hampton Bag. I'd like to make one! Thanks!

debbowers said...

What a great pattern! I'd pick it as my favorite but you already gave it to us free :) . . . so I'll pick Bloom - that pattern always makes me smile (as did your blog entry).

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I love the Beach Bag pattern! Thanks for the fun block and the great instructions for the quilt!

Dale said...

I choose the Just Dandy Baby Quilt pattern. LOVE IT!! Plus the quilt you posted on your blog today is a real beauty!! Thank you for the great give away!

Emilee said...

Love the houndstooth quilt!

Margaret said...

My favorite pattern of yours is the Houndstooth. Still.

Rae Reid said...

I love the Dutchman Puzzle and Kaleidoscope patterns. Thanks for your blog, it puts a smile on my face and the inspiration to try new things!

Four dogs and one quilter said...

Love your Bubbles pattern. Would make a great companion to the Dutchman puzzle.

Robbie said...

OOOh. Kalidescope is my favorite. I love that pattern. Sooo cute!!

Kay said...

I cannot make up my mind whether I prefer the Abby bag or the Confetti quilt pattern as they are both just so lovely. Thank you for sharing a lovely giveaway.

Dawn Frisch said...

I love all of your patterns but the Chelsea bag is my favorite! I just love the design of the bag and how you can use two of your favorite fabrics to showcase! I also love the Houndstooth quilt to! So unusual and very striking! Happy Quilting

Melissa Gerber said...

I love the banner quilt. And in response to your blog post, I am at the other end of the height spectrum at 5'10" (my niece is 6'1"!). It comes in handy at the grocery store, but I do hit my head more than is really necessary! A woman in the store once said to me "Goodness, you're tall," and without missing a beat my mother responded "Goodness had nothing to do with it!"

Vio said...

Color block zipper pouches. Good luck with the stripper shoe plan!

Jean said...

I LOVE your "JUST DANDY" baby quilt pattern. I already have your houndstooth ready to make in purple and white for a baby coming this November. Unfortunately, I have to drive 45+ miles to find a shop that carries your fabric .... so I keep nagging my LQS to get your stuff!

Stay cool!

Sewbig said...

In addition to Ombre Dutchman, I like hopscotch and the Chelsea Bag. Thanks for the chance to win.

Anonymous said...

Dutchman Puzzle is my favorite.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Nicole J said...

My favorite would be barn dance! Love the look of that one! Hard to pick a favorite though when they are all so good!

Materialmoments@yahoo.com

Aggiequilter said...

Hard decision ! Love your Kaleidoscope quilt but Bloom's a very close 2nd.
Thanks for sharing with us !

Whit said...

I love your Bloom Pattern as well as your kaleidoscope!!

Jade said...

I'm really torn between 3... Kaleidoscope, Bloom and Barn Dance. It's too hard to choose just one.

Thanks for the giveaway chance.

While I'm commenting I thought I'd mention that my husband has finally expressed interest in a quilt of his own with the requirements of no girly fabrics or pink. I scooped up a bunch of your fabrics and am loving them so much. I love how crisp and clean the designs are. I think he'll love his quilt when it's done. :)

selleck said...

Bloom is fun. Thanks for the giveaway.

Kathryn said...

I've loved houndstooth all my life. I can't tell you how many of the clothes I sewed in high school were houndstooth. Thats my favorite, hands down.

lindasteller said...

I like your Chelsea Bag patter because the size seems just right - not too big, not too small!

Melissa said...

Okay, so I'm 4'6" and a HALF...I was 4'7" before my body betrayed me and got old...No stripper shoes for me because I wear a 4 in Women's shoes and those get quite expensive...no, I get to wear 'little girl shoes'.
My favorite pattern in your shop right now is Kaleidoscope and yes, I had to look how to properly spell it!

Goody Family said...

I really like Houndstooth, but someday when I am very brave, I'd REALLY like to try and make the Abby Bag, it is just so darn cute!

IHaveANotion ~ Kelly Jackson said...

I love Dolly Parton and she also wears very high heels...so good on ya girl! I'm 6 feet tall and I too wear heels...but not very often.

I like your Confetti pattern...love hexagons.

Thanks!

Kelly

wendy said...

Hard to choose but, I like the Favorite Bag. Thanks!

Lesley said...

I really like Hopscotch!

manjservi said...

I love your Bloom pattern, also the block pattern. Thanks for the contest.

Tiffany said...

I love your humor! My favorite pattern right now is bloom!

Erin said...

I love the beach bag pattern!
Such a great tote for a mom.

Joanna said...

My favorite pattern is Barn Dance, and I love the story you tell about the dances inside the barns, as well. I love connecting things like that to a quilt.

Kim said...

Oooh I want to make the Houndstooth Quilt!!! I love it!

Jen and Daz said...

I love the I heart you quilt....wait I love them all....but I heart you is my favorite! Thanks for the laugh and the great things you do....and for the give away!

Cheryl said...

Banner Quilt is my favorite! I had to quickly say it because I might just change my mind and tell you the dandelion quilt or the bloom or the strawberry cake - I love them all! Your post cracked me up - I'm also short and can relate to everything you said. You gave me the idea to wear high heels in the kitchen so I don't have to call for help to reach the dishes on the higher shelves. I can't wait to share your post with my 4 shrimpy sisters!

MahSistersQuiltTrunk said...

Lots of great quilts. Love them all. Lots of inspiration. Thank you. Wish all who read this a great day.

Janet M said...

I love your Confetti pattern. It would be a stretch for me with all the negative space.

Carol said...

It's really hard to just pick one patterns - I like several, but I guess I like Barn Dance the best.

B Greene said...

I love Bloom, but Kaleidoscope is my true favorite!! Thanks for the chance to win!

PK Sews said...

I love your bubbles quilt pattern. It's a happy joyful kind of quilt, and the fabrics you used for the cover photo are awesome. I'd make it with those colors too. Thanks!

barefootT said...

love the Hopscotch pattern :)

thanks for the giveaway and the free pattern, which I love.

lia said...

Kaleidoscope is my favorite. Second best the Confetti pattern. lia.vandenbrand@live.nl

kelli said...

I <3 U is my favorite! Although Bloom is a very close second! Great job on the quilt and the heels. My 93 year old tops at 5 in her heels. She still wears them!

JoyceLM said...

Your Houndstooth Quilt pattern is my favorite. I remember back in the 3rd quarter of the last century, I made most of my clothes & I make 3 houndstooth wool skirts in black, navy & brown. Thanks for the giveaway. (If you lived in the Regency era, you'd be a "Pocket Venus", rather than "short".)

Fiesta said...

I love the flirty skirt pattern.

Kim M said...

I love the Hopscotch quilt pattern!

Margaret said...

I have to say I like a lot of those patterns but bloom really caught my eye. Thanks for sharing.

Sandra said...

The Ruffle Argyle Quilt PDF Pattern is my choice. Thank you for being a part of the Size Matters Blog Hop and the wonderful opportunity to become one of your winners.

Sandi Timmons

VickiT said...

You are too funny with that one inch. Of course, I totally understand too; not that I'm the same height as you are but, I do understand not wanting to lose an inch. My husband is 6'6" tall and forever I have been 5'6" tall but I think possibly my very bad knees have made me shrink because things I could reach easily before in my kitchen I cannot reach any longer and at the doctor's office this past year they actually measured me and I had lost an inch. NOooo I can't get shorter with a husband as tall as mine because I already look so short next to him. lol

Anyway, I do love the Dutchman Block. I am not able to download the file but it appears that maybe United Notions site is the cause of the problem because I cannot get to their site at all. I'll try again later. Thank you.

Choosing a favorite pattern from your site really is very hard decision as I love so many already.
I know that from the time I first saw it that Bloom has been a favorite of mine.

Ann said...

Barn dance is my fave, but ruffled argyle comes in a close second.

I'm not interested in clothes and bags - HAD to do that when younger, not gonna CHOOSE it now. LOL But I liked hopscotch quite a lot. Thanks for the giveaway. I like your big block, and loved you on the Schoolhouse film.

My favorite is Kaleidoscope. I have read your blog off and on for a long time and never realized you are not as tall as some people. You certainly have a lot of talent in that small package! Thanks for sharing the awesome pattern.

You've got such a variety of patterns! How can I chose just one? Tell you what - If I win, please choose one for me! (but I am partial to purses, hint, hint)

Your patterns are so happy. I just smile when I see confetti and kaleidoscope. Thank you very much for your tut on the flying dutchman...your design makes me want to repaint my dutchman puzzle on the barn.

I really like confetti, the random placement of the hexagons is unusual and playful.

Mary said...

It's a toss up. I love both Little Sprouts and Bubbles.
