Just sunshine.  Lots and lots of sunshine - Little Miss Sunshine to be specific.

This isn't Frivol 9 - it's one of Vanessa's quilts featuring her lovely Little Miss Sunshine collection, it's called June Bug.

This is Olive.

Olive's Mom is Vanessa Goertzen - Vanessa is Lella Boutique.  Mom made Olive's adorable dress using her Little Miss Sunshine fabrics.


Olive is also the name of the quilt in Frivol 9.


This is Vanessa's Little Miss Sunshine collection - isn't it yummy?


By the way, if you love the yellow, peach and coral colors in this collection, you might want to stash a little bit extra as there is something coming that mixes beautifully with it.  Just saying.


This Frivol is one of my favorites because I love the yellow and aqua combination.  Here's what's in the tin:

  • A roll of 42 squares - 7" x 7" from the Little Miss Sunshine collection by Vanessa Goertzen for Lella Boutique ~ there are duplicates of several prints.
  • The pattern for the quilt we've titled "Olive"
  • A cute little coloring book based on the designs in Vanessa's collection - a Frivols exclusive
    • The designs could be used for embroidery.
  • 1 Maker block card with a block pattern and a quotation provided by Vanessa

Note:  The pattern and Maker card are located under the printed insert - the tin is inside the riser.

These are the nine exclusive Frivol treats we've collected to date.


There are quilt labels from Minick & Simpson, and from Fig Tree & Co.  There are 1-yard pieces of designed by the designer ribbon from French General and Bonnie & Camille.  There are two skeins of Lecien Cosmo floss to match Brenda's Windermere, a cute little Eliza's Indigo notebook from Betsy and a Little Miss Sunshine coloring book.  And finally, there is a "Moda" scissor keep for Primitive Gatherings and that cute little tin is from Sandy Klop's Bread 'n Butter Frivol.

Maker Blocks. 


This is the Maker Block for Frivol No. 9.

We're on the homestretch with the sampler quilts - while there are still three more blocks coming, a couple of the little Maker sampler quilts are nearing completion.

There are lots of finished quilt tops popping up on Instagram - #modafrivols.

But before I let you go today, I have to share a picture of Miss Vanessa taken by her friend Vanessa Christenson of V & Co. at the airport in Houston last Fall...

I think the folks at TSA were checking to see if Vanessa had any Little Miss Sunshine mini charms left after Market.  Just saying.

Happy Tuesday!
