Welcome to the Suzy Quilts day on the Five & Dime fabric blog hop! Five & Dime is a fresh and fun new line of fabric designed by the wonderful Heidi Staples of Fabric Mutt.
I have been a fan of Heidi since I first saw a Bear Paw quilt she made almost two years ago. I loved the quilt so much I emailed Heidi and begged her to let me write about it here on the blog. Obvi she said yes, because she's awesome. 🙂 Check out her completely gorgeous Bear Paw quilt here.
What I love about this Five & Dime fabric is the amount of adorable things Heidi was able to pack into a single print. I can't wait to finish this Fishing Net baby quilt and play a game of I Spy with my little nephew. He's going to love it!
There's one other little creature who loves this fabric almost as much as me. Can you guess?
I opened up the box of fabric from Riley Blake Fabrics on a Friday, and fanned out each print on the floor. Within 5 minutes Scrappy claimed the fabric as her new bed. I thought to myself, "Oh Scrap, she loves rubbing her furry little body on anything I lay on the floor."
But nooooo. That wasn't it at all. Throughout the weekend I laid out other piles of fabric and tried to organize various quilts on the floor too. Scrappy never once moved from her Five & Dime stack. These pics were taken on different days. I know there's no way to prove that because Scrappy doesn't wear clothes or style her hair differently. You're just going to have to trust me.
Scrappy is very possessive of this fabric. And will most likely be quite angry with me when I give this baby quilt away.
It really doesn't matter where I put this quilt – she's going to sit on it.
The above quilt pattern is a simple design called Fishing Net. It can be found in the shop!

Scrappy, you’re the best!! Just like your amazing owner…thanks a million, Suzy. It’s gorgeous!!!
LOVE this quilt project! Thanks for sharing!
Nice quilt but your dog is precious!
She always seems to steal the show 😉
I think Scrappy is telling you she needs her own Five and Dime quilt!
My little Annie looks very much like Scrappy. Love my little scruffy pup, and your new line. Caught my eye immediately.
