My Little Sunshine Blog Hop: Day 4 Free Pattern Friday!

Welcome to the My Little Sunshine Blog Hop! We're excited to share what five designers have created with Cherry's adorable fabrics! Follow along all week and make sure to enter for a chance to win a fat quarter bundle of My Little Sunshine prints! (If you missed Cherry's interview about My Little Sunshine, click here to find it.)


Today we're celebrating Free Pattern Friday as part of our blog hop, and due to a schedule change, we'll have two more blog hop posts next Monday and Tuesday. This collection contains two free pattern options--both the free quilt pattern, and the make-your-own-bib panel (with three sweet designs).Yesterday, Erin Avery Lane Designs showed us an adorable flutter bib design. You could add her ruffles to any of these adorable bibs!
We'd like to thank Carol Miller Mendoza for sharing a photo of her finished bibs with us on Facebook...aren't they adorable!?!

A few tips for making the bibs:
  • Consider adding a layer of thin batting, flannel, or even sewable laminate between the front and back bib pieces. 
  • After sewing the bib front and back together, clip along the curved edges to help with turning. 
  • After the bib has been turned right side out, topstitch along the edge for a nice finished look. 



If our blog hop has inspired you to use the My Little Sunshine fabrics, consider "Duckies!," Cherry's free quilt pattern (available as a free download on her website). This sweet baby quilt uses 2-1/2" precut strips to make the center braid, and then adds sweet little applique duckies to the top and bottom. It's a perfect project for a new little baby!


For a chance to win the bib panel plus 2 yards of coordinating fabric, leave a comment below letting us know your favorite print in Cherry's collection. Giveaway is open through Tuesday, August 29th at 11:59 pm EDT.

  1. The cute bib prints make such a nice addition to this great collection of fabrics. While the animals are great for baby sewing, the hearts, pinstripes and alphabets can be easily used in any projects. They were a delight to stitch up.

  14. I saw the bib panel on another site and fell in love with it. Smaller projects are best for me as we head towards the holiday season. So many tasks; so little time. Baby items are always part of the mix. swalker287(at)aol(dot)com
