sachets + a friday link round-up

For gift giving this past Christmas, I made a pile of lavender flower sachets (pictured above) using this excellent Purl Bee tutorial. Purl Soho carries the prettiest stacks of wool felt, and I opted to use the Spice colorway for my sachets. The final product was super fragrant and really beautiful; I highly recommend the tutorial!

What are your plans for the weekend? I'm hoping to sew (of course!) and fit in a couple of runs. In the meantime, here a few of my favorite things from around the web lately to take you into the weekend:

Season Evans makes stunning quilts, and this spotlight on her work is killer.

Etsy also did a feature on another fellow quilter, Btaylor Quilts.

My friend Kait bought a fabric shop!

Umbrella Prints launched their new Flowers Collection, and the color palette is spot on. (Pieces from their past collections can still be found in the Salty Oat shop.)

Apartment Therapy has some great tips on how to clean quilts.

Lee over at May Chappell is hosting a fun block swap featuring Carolyn Friedlander's new Outhouse quilt pattern; I've already signed up!

This video of a putter (a scissor maker) at work is so cool.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
