Hello! Blog Hop with Susan Emory

Hello!  is the fun new collection by Susan Emory for Michael Miller Fabrics!  The bright colors are delightful to work with!  The retro prints are perfect for larger fussy cuts, small bags or journal covers.  I can even see some people wanting to Mod Podge these fabrics on many items...because Mod Podge works on ANYTHING...am I right 😊

When my bundle arrived, I thought I was going to be making another project.  I had everything cut out and ready to go but it sat unfinished.  Mostly because I thought it was going to be the PERFECT project for these fabrics but this one is even BETTER!




This Hello mini quilt is fussy cut fun!  The pattern is by Kate Basti  and is a free paper piecing block!  It is called Tall Tales Block and you can find it here!





The pages fabrics are from thrifted mens shirts. So far, that is the best fabrics I have found to make the pages really look like pages! 





All of my blocks were pieced using Aurifil 50wt thread on my Bernina.





If you were not at Quilt Market, here are some photos of Susan's booth with all of her lovely fabrics! 








Susan is also sharing a FREE PATTERN for you to get started making something!

Neat. I love books! I've not tried my hand at paper piecing. This is definitely something I must try because I continually see so many beautiful works of art working that method!

The Hello fabrics are perfect for fussy cutting to make the cover of the Tall Tale Blocks. I really like how you used men's shirt fabric for the pages..I think it's perfect! Also, thanks for sharing the link to the free pattern.
