Welcome to Sew Cute Tuesday

I am excited to announce that I have inherited Sew Cute Tuesday from Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts. I am really looking forward to hosting this linky party every week, and I hope you continue to enjoy it as well!

If you're new here, my name is Hilary and I have been sewing and quilting for 14+ years. I am completely self/internet taught (thank you Craftsy lol) and I love learning and being inspired by others. I'm married to a wonderfully nerdy man, and we're about to welcome our second child this October.

I would definitely consider my quilting style to be a good blend of modern and traditional. I love patterns by Thimble Blossoms & Cluck Cluck Sew, and some of my favorite fabrics are by Lizzy House, Cotton & Steel, and pretty much anything with bold bright colors! Below are two of my favorite quilty creations.

Completed #TheSmallWorldMini
This is my most recent quilty finish! The pattern is by @Projectleasa on Instagram and it is inspired by It's a Small World at Disney. I knew I had to make this because I love Disney (I even worked there when I was in college) so I jumped at the opportunity to test the pattern when Leasa asked for pattern testers a few years ago. Then the top sat because I was scared to quilt it. I finally dove into the quilting this year and I am so glad I finished it!

Marcelle Medallion
This quilt is by far my favorite quilt that I have made so far! The pattern is the Marcelle Medallion from the book Liberty Love, and the fabrics are a combination of Lizzy House Constellations plus my stash of blues and low volume fabric. I really want to make an entire rainbow of Marcelle Medallions, but that idea is on the back burner until I finish a few other things (like having a baby in 2 months)!

I'm working on getting a new Sew Cute Tuesday button made up, and should have it ready by next week.

So with that, it is time to link up your projects from the past week! I can't wait to see what everyone is working on or has finished!
