When I originally pieced this quilt top, I called it my Scrappy Solution...four years later it's quilted! This pattern actually made it's way into Modern Basics, as Twisted Bars,  if you are interested in making your own.  I had thought I would add a binding then show it off, but it won't be happening this [...]

Pocket Pixies Quilt Top

Hey there!  Yesterday I finally had a chance to sit and sew -- and it felt so good! The methodical process, of piecing, pressing and making decisions as I work is like magic.  And I never tire of the process.  I know you can relate to that idea.  Now my little ones are gathering around, [...]

Quilt Top In a Day

I know, I surprise myself too! Sewing with 4 little ones running around can be challenging. I just have to plan ahead for naptime and I sew at the kitchen table. This is a blessing and a curse. A blessing because I can be in the midst of my kids while working on little bits. [...]
