From Bump to Baby - Big Win!

No – there are no storks circling over the homes of my kids (that I’m aware of).   I just had to share my BIG WIN in the Bump to Baby Blog Hop!

The hop promoted From Bump to Baby, a delightfully whimsical and colorful fabric line from Moda Fabrics, designed by Gina Martin.   And here is a snapshot of the fabrics included, from an Etsy listing for a charm pack (5” squares of fabric) posted by BresQuilts.

Here is a photo of the fat eighths bundle I received in the mail!  A fat eighth is a 9” x 22” piece of fabric.
So much colorful cuteness -- and tied with a bow!!

Since it’s Shameless Commerce Tuesday, I must tell you that I plan to make some pretty new baby bibs and maybe some coordinating burp cloths to list in my Etsy shop, Pasque Flower Creations, soon-ish.  (Nothing happens quickly during tax season.  But the end is in sight: T minus 36 days and counting!!)
Here's a fabric combo that I plan to use for a future listing:

And with new babies come grannies who love to rock babies in rocking chairs!  Here is my newest listing from my vintage shop, Aunt Pheba's Vintage.  It's a 5.5-inch vintage rocking chair pincushion made of a very early molded plastic called Bakelite.  Items made of Bakelite have become collectibles.

I re-covered the original cushion with reproduction fabrics.  There's a little recessed well under the cushion, just the right size for a spool of thread and a thimble.
Isn't that cute?




  1. Wow! Congrats LeAnn! That is a wonderful prize and so perferct for you :)
    The rocking chair pin cushion with hidden compartment ist adorable!

  2. Congratulations! How fun! That pincushion chair is sweet.

  3. What a nice win for you -- lots of cute fabric to turn into cute bibs! And that rocker pincushion is adorable!

  4. Oh, man, what awesome fabrics! The rocking chair is really cute. I've never seen anything like it! I hope it does well for you in your vintage shop.

  5. Congrats on the win! One can never have too much fabric :) Love the colors!

  6. Congratulation on the lovely win!!!1I love this sweet colors and pattern - very beautiful!!!!!

  7. That's a great prize! Congratulations! I like the Bakelite pincushion, too, and I bet somebody snaps that up quickly. :-)

  8. Congratulations on winning that fat eighth of cute fabrics! I'm sure you'll put them to good use. And boy, do I ever understand that itchy-want-to-get-back-to-creating feeling, even though I'm not a tax preparer. I've been taking an unwelcome break this week from creating to gather tax paperwork, and it's not fun. I can't imagine a season of doing that!
