Baby Chicken Hats (Beanie or Toboggan)

Where I am from, we call it a toboggan -- but no matter how you say it, this is probably the cutest baby hat ever. Covered in my signature chicken print, this knit hat is perfect for keeping tiny heads warm! Just listed in my etsy shop for babies 0-6 months.

Herringbone Quilt Kit

My mom's fabric store carries fabric from the Cotton + Steel line and I love working with a mix of patterns from their collections. I recently put together this herringbone quilt top featuring three prints and a solid. It's a simple and fun quilt to make so I decided to package the appropriate yardage and directions together in a kit, which can be purchased here. I prefer to make the half square triangles (HST) using the "magic 8" method -- meaning you can get 8 HST from just two pieces of fabric. Now on to figuring out how I'd like to quilt and bind it...

Oh, and can you believe how golden this photograph is? It's just screaming fall in the background with the leaves and wind!

And here's a close-up -- I love how the white just brings it all together!
