Project Quilting – Fav Fabrics

This week’s Project Quilting challenge was super hard. I had to decide what my favorite fabric was. In case you’re new to quilting, this is like asking a librarian what her favorite book is! Many of us have a stash full of beautiful fabrics. Some of them we’ve had for ages because we’re in love Read More …

WIP Wednesday

Yet another week has gone by with my regular sewing machine in the shop. It will be 3 full weeks on Saturday. But the good news is, that gave me a reason to talk my husband into actually getting my Featherweight oiled. So, I’ve been using it to create this week’s Project Quilting challenge quilt. Read More …

WIP Wednesday

We, once again, interrupt this #NaBloPoMo for a #WIPWednesday update. Last week, I made up a super fun heart quilt for Project Quilting. You can vote for it this week on the PersimonDreams blog. I also took my Double Wedding Ring quilt out of UFO status and started working on it again. I got all Read More …

Project Quilting – Hearts

It seems like everything is having a heart theme this week. It was the theme for #OurProject52 this week, and for this week’s Project Quilting Challenge.  It kind of stressed me out because I don’t usually do hearts- they seem so childish to me.

Wilmington Prints Trunk Show

I was lucky enough to attend the Wilmington Prints Trunk Show at Let’s Sew on Valentine’s Day. It was a lot of fun to see some of the great things we could make with Wilmington’s yardage and  pre-cut 2.5″ strips. The Square Knot quilt was lovely and features a lot of the essentials lines which Read More …

Project Quilting – Orphan Blocks

Today was supposed to be another #NaBloPoMo post, but I figured that talking about a finished quilt is a perfectly good reason to postpone it until tomorrow.  Instead, I wanted to share with you my finished project for this week’s Project Quilting Challenge.  So without further ado, I present to you “Annie.” This week’s theme Read More …

#NaBloPoMo – Cheesy Chicken Croissant Pockets

One of my least favorite things to do is to make dinner. It’s not that I don’t enjoy cooking. It’s that my husband can’t ever give me a straight answer about what he wants for dinner. I get a lot of “I don’t know.” and “I’m not hungry yet.” It’s hard to make dinner when Read More …
