Hi there! First, I need to tell you about Inspiring Stitches - it's a brand new company that I've started with my really good friend Heather. I say really good friend, because that's what you have to be to work together the way business owners do! We have repeatedly surprised ourselves by the way we [...]

This month for the Bella Skill Builder, we made two BIG blocks! It's so fun to see the larger units come together into these classic shapes.    My color palette keeps surprising me too - I'm really happy with the greens in these blocks.

Bella Skill Builder – Month 3

Pineapple Blocks These Pineapple blocks were so fun to make, and I love the bright yellow that I selected to go in my quilt! Traditionally a Pineapple block is paper-pieced, however, with the Pineapple Trim Tool we are able to piece without the paper and square up as we go! If you haven't seen [...]
