Farmhouse Fresh book tour and giveaway

I am obsessed about everything Farmhouse. ( thank you Joanna Gaines)

Love the fresh look.

Love the timeless style.

Love the classic simplicity.

I have hunted for vintage grain sacks/ toweling and paid big bucks for it. When Moda started making toweling many years ago it became a basic but people still asked what do I do with it? Moda’s toweling is available by the yard, hemmed on 2 sides and assorted designs
and fabric weights.

In steps Jenelle Kent, taking toweling to a whole new level as shown in her new book, Farmhouse Fresh.

Adding appliqué is just one way to bling your toweling.


There is nothing more classic than making pillows from the toweling. The variety of fabric weights make substantial pillows. Adding buttons, ties and even embroidered panels take the projects to the next level.

The toweling is generally 100% cotton so it is great to combine with your fabric quilting fabrics.
I love this blue stripe and the tech organizer.

I desperately need to make a sewing machine cover and this one is calling my name!

Are you intrigued? There are more projects but I wanted to share that due to the popularity of toweling, Jenelle has designed a few fabric towelings that are 60″ wide. Duvet covers, quilt backs, home dec and so much more, but more on that later.

Farmhouse Fresh has 11 different projects and includes the embroidery stitches for everything. Any of these would make perfect birthday or hostess gifts for that special person on your list.

I have a book compliments of Martingale Publishing and I am going to
add a 3 yd chunk of toweling to sweeten the deal.

Leave a comment and tell me which project is your favorite.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED.

Be sure and follow all of my friends that are on the book tour for more info

and to see the projects they have made.

    The sewing machine cover caught my interest. I need a new one for my machine. I wish Joanna Gaines could work her miracles on my home LOL!

    Love the zest block and especially the block in block. Thank you to all the designers for their designs and helpful tips. So appreciate all the hard work and wonderful designs. Having so much fun with this Moda Blockheads 3. This is my first attempt and I am learning so much and absolutely loving it.

    I see the items shown are something I could use also. I hope I can win your book or I will need to make something similar to what you have shown because my tech bag needs to be a bit bigger. I have to many cords.

    Wow — my favorite project kept changing as I scrolled through the photos! I am smitten by the foldover project in French General fabrics with the sweet applique and embroidery.
