Make Something That Counts with Ten Little Things!

All of the Cabbage Rose shoppers have been going nuts over Ten Little Things by Jenn Ski, the perfect NEW collection for little boys. Her little owl and truck illustrations are too cute for words and just perfect for a nursery or a even a young boy's bedroom! Or if you just want a little bit of this line's cuteness, how about making this super sweet On the Go Baby Boy Quilt!

I found the recipe for this little cutie on the Moda Bake Shop Blog and I think it's a great way to use these colorful prints!

All you need is:
1 1/4 Yards of Solid White for Quilt Top Background
1/2 Yard for Applique and Binding (30505 40 - Navy Stars was used in the sample)
1/2 Yard for Borders and Pieced Back (30504 17 - Lime Dots was used in the sample)
1 1/2 yard for backing (30501 19 - Grey Trucks was used in the sample)

You can get the full instuctions with pictures here!

We saw the ever-so-cute Dottie Quilt by Cluck Cluck Sew made up with Ten Little Things at Quilt Market this Fall and it was too cute! You can create this quilt with Layer Cakes and Fat Quarters so grab some pre-cuts and save yourself some cutting time! You can grab the pattern and get the Fabric Requirements for this quilt here!

And of course there's the Numbers Quiet Book FREE PATTERN that you can create with a panel and the too-cool-for-school Chalk Cloth! This is a great way for little ones to practice drawing their numbers and a fun way for them to occupy their time on all those Summer roadtrips you have planned!

There's a lot of fun uses for Chalk Cloth outside of this project, Caroline used it to make this super cute bunting that would be fabulous for any occasion! You can change it up with the seasons or for parties! Just draw yourself a template (any shape you want) and trace onto the cloth with chalk (what else?), then cut your bunting out, use a hole punch and ribbon or fabric scraps to hang and your done! Easy peasy!

What are you thinking of making with this collection? Take a picture of your creations and tag us on Facebook to inspire us and others!
