Tilda, Teacups & a Lefty-Girl-Imagination Running Amok

I'm tickled to share a recent finish in the form of a new wall quilt for my studio. The pattern is designed by my sweet friend Robin Pickens and hers looks like this: The above represents the cover photo for English Breakfast, featuring Robin's next collection for Moda fabrics called Cottage Bleu, shipping to shops … Continue reading Tilda, Teacups & a Lefty-Girl-Imagination Running Amok

Fabric Curator as a job description. That’s a thing, right?

Okay, so maybe it sounds like a made up name for someone who has a thing for pulling together a whole bunch of fabrics that all somehow work together in a quilt, but I feel like if I'm anything lately, it's that - a Fabric Curator. Early this summer, as explained in my previous post, … Continue reading Fabric Curator as a job description. That’s a thing, right?

Summertime 2019 Projects Here I Come!

Who's a crazy hermit/shop girl who's just finished cutting 6,336 - 5" squares? Two hands way, way up! Well, okay, so really Sophie Just helped with the showing off part, which is a fine job for her!

Oh, the Bundles We Grow!

Well, it's officially July - and the Summertime livin' is still easy...except now I'm filling it up with more sewing projects!

New Happy Scrappy Bundles, a Simple Sew Along & Summertime vs Summer

Summertiiiime...and the livin' is eeeeasy. When I think of summertime, not 'summer' but 'Summertime' (because I think there's a difference), I always think of that song; and I think of hot days, lemonade stands, and sprinklers. Nowadays, I still fee like summertime should be as easy and carefree, bust when we're grown ups, there's no … Continue reading New Happy Scrappy Bundles, a Simple Sew Along & Summertime vs Summer

Painted Gardens and a Springy Serendipity Sandbox-Style Sewing Project

The long and short of it is that Spring gets me every time. By 'gets' - I mean that more than any other time of the year, Spring inspires me to whip up something great; something adventurous and cheery; bright and sunny; joyful and quite obviously - Springy. So when miraculously at Fall Quilt Market 2017, I … Continue reading Painted Gardens and a Springy Serendipity Sandbox-Style Sewing Project

All I Need is Love…and a Little Sewing Time

Even though you probably didn't notice - I took a little break over the holidays. In part, because it recent years I've put off my Christmas shopping until closer (read: dangerously close) to Christmas, so I had lots of shopping to do! But also because I think the holidays are a time to regroup, reset … Continue reading All I Need is Love…and a Little Sewing Time

Have Scraps? Need Scraps!

Bad Hair Days, Empty Nesting and New Fulfilling Endeavors

Back in what sometimes feels like the olden days, when my family was young and growing, I remember feeling like there was always tons of planning and organizing going on. In those days, we went the grocery store once a week with a detailed list. We organized that list by section from back of the … Continue reading Bad Hair Days, Empty Nesting and New Fulfilling Endeavors
