By |2020-02-11T06:49:34-07:00July 7th, 2014|Appliqué, work in progress|11 Comments

Last week, I decided I needed a project that was just for me, and that hand work would be better than machine sewing for right now. So I went to my library, and pulled all the books I could find with some  hand appliqué projects included. I was a little shocked to find so many [...]

Happy Friday! This week has been full, and I'm excited to share my Star-Crossed quilt top with you! I made it with Botanique by Joel Dewberry, and Bella Eggshell (281). Star-Crossed is from my second book, Modern Basics II and a great project for large scale prints! Now I'm looking forward to quilting up that [...]

I was looking through my blog over the weekend, and realized that I never shared my finished quilt top for the #apqquiltalong project! I had a few little deadlines pop up on me and I folded up the top before I got it posted here - sorry! My quilt measures 75" x 93" - which [...]

I was contacted by the Quilt in a Day office to see if I would be willing to try out a new ruler that Elenor Burns has produced. I can't resist a new gadget, and said of course! I collected jelly rolls to use, since it is super jelly roll friendly, and had a blast [...]

Last week I shared my Quilt-along progress, and I'm excited to have even more progress to share today! I sewed up the block centers - and love the way the colors are coming together, the varied blues, with a touch of green is just right! I also did some strip-piecing, and trimmed them up for [...]

Head Down to the Finish Line

The hard part about writing a book, is not being able to share the quilts I'm really excited to be making! Over the last month, I've completed tops for 9 of the 10 projects in my next book, but I saved the most laborious for last. I wanted to be able to focus, and not [...]

Sometimes slowing down and doing handwork can be so rewarding! Not only does it go everywhere I go, but it helps me to slow down and take time to think about the stitches, but also LIFE in general. I feel like summer is getting away from me and hope that I can enjoy the last [...]
