Oh wow, how have I missed the flirty skirt? Love tutorials that repurpose stuff like that. Very cool! Thanks for the giveaway!

Denise in PA said...

I've always loved Vanessa's Houndstooth pattern (in fact Andrew wore a houndstooth jacket to the guild meeting this week and I immediately thought of this pattern!) You're right, she does have *lots* of great tutorials, but I would like to make the ruffle skirt - I think even I could handle it!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

You are right! It's too hard to pick just one. I've been reading Vanessa's blog for a long time, and I love her creativity and her sweet children :-) If I had to pick one tutorial, I'd pick the composition book cover. Thanks again for the week of giveaways.

Kira said...

Ruffle skirt. I first saw the pre-ruffled fabric in August and have been planning for my girls' birthdays ever since. Time approaches and how nice is it to have that tutorial.

Judi said...

Wow there are a million awesome tutorials on that site! I'm going to have to work through all those :) I especially love the composition cover and the flirty skirt, but I thought it was such a unique idea to use the old dryer sheets to do applique! I've always wished there was something you could do with those aggravating things!

9patchnurse said...

Wow! You are right, hard to pick. I really like the streamlined look of the pleated pillow, gorgeous in solids. And the houndstooth baby quilt is so fun.

bellashea said...

They are all fun but I would like to make the shaggy pillow someday!

Jennifer said...

right now with this cooler weather I am leaning towards the argyle scarf! Thanks

Shannon said...

You are so right!!! Vanessa is so very talented, and I am thankful she so generously and graciously shares her tutorials. :) I had a very hard time narrowing it down, because I'd like to make about 97% of everything she has created! However, I narrowed it down to Tomato Turned Pumpkin (so cute!) and the Vintage Baby Quilt! :)

Tammy said...

Vanessa's blog is one of my faves. Choosing one tutorial is difficult but I love, love her tablecloth skirt - so sweet.

Margie said...

Love the rag rug and baby doll pinwheel quilt. And, I think that I'm going to have to order the pattern for the fabric bracelet and maybe one of her bags too!

Christy said...

Love the baby life quilt.

Judy said...

Eat.Play.Sleep.Repeat is my favorite - just wish I had younger children. You're right their are a ton of tutes! I'm a big fan and subscribe to her but I guess I never made it all the way down to the bottom of her tutes, I must get side tracked when I find something I like and forget to go back!

ali.ramin said...

I really love her tutorial for using old dryer sheets for applique! I love reusing old things, so we throw away less! It is such a cute idea, and next time I do laundry, I am saving those babies for my applique!

Lisa said...

Love the abby bag!

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

I love the baby life quilt and perfect flower! I seriously just had to pick two out of a hat because they are all favorites!

cllcraft said...

You were absolutely right about not being able to choose two of these great tutorials - they are all clever, imaginative, and very creative. If I had to choose two, they would be the Just Dandy Baby Quilt, and No-Sew Fabric Wreath....no, Abby Bag and ???? Oh, I love them all!

The Favorite Bag or Just Dandy baby quilt--both great choices.

I know you only said one or two, but really, all of the pillows are to die for!
