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?
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.

Because I spent more than a decade straight embracing (with … Continue reading You Don’t Have to Take My Word for it: Seam Allowance Nesting, Quilt Piecing Self Reliance, and Memories that Stick

It's also January and I like Januarys for the exact same reasons I like Tuesdays, except … Continue reading Things I like, A New Bundle, and Staying on Track
Yesterday marks a whole week that I've been back from Quilt Market. My, how time flies when you're playing catch up - but now that the dust has settled... Some of you may recall that my previous trip to Market last spring resulted in a delayed, rather underwhelming post about Market itself, and more about … Continue reading Quilt Market, Round 2: Upcoming BOMs, Growing, and Oh Yes – Bees
I know - it's Monday. That means it's release day for Block 3 for the Moda Be My Neighbor Sew Along, and you know what? I'm ready, kind of; but I'm going to have to make it quick, because not only is it Block 3 Day for the Be My Neighbor project, there are also … Continue reading A Beautiful (yet insanely busy) Day in My Neighborhood, and Other Sew Along News
