fabric selection for road 15 quilts

Sunday Stash

By Andrea | September 1, 2019 |

I made a trip down to The Village Mercantile in Boonville, IN this week and found the perfect fabric for the next baby quilt. The front of the quilt will use a charm pack of Road 15 by Sweetwater for Moda and a coordinating burgundy swirl print that I found. The back is cream yardage…

Strawberry Jam Baby Quilt

By Andrea | August 23, 2019 |

One of the nice things about getting a new niece was that it gave me a reason to get back to sewing after my 2+ year hiatus following Mil’s birth. My sister-in-law is having a baby girl in October and I didn’t want to be the aunt who made a quilt for the first baby…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | August 21, 2019 |

I’m making progress on my spooky crazy quilt, but most of the work I’ve done in the last week has been hand work, so it doesn’t feel like the same kind of progress I get when I finish a new block. I currently have 3 sections pieced together, and I now have the hand stitching…

I finished the 2 quilts in the last couple weeks, and I’m super proud of myself, but I still have many quilts that have been in a giant UFO stack for the last couple of years. With fall, and Halloween coming up soon, I decided to pull out the spooky wall hanging quilt I’d left…

By Andrea | August 9, 2019 |

Before Mil was born, I picked out a lovely collection of fabric to make her a quilt. It was a big stack of mixed prints, and the Little Golden Books Fuzzy Duckling Panel. I had the whole thing pieced and ready to baste, but she showed up a week earlier than expected (which was extra…

Sewing seems to have it’s good days and it’s bad days around here. Some days, I manage to finish my last piece of stitching just before my bobbin run out, other times, I end up with a machine malfunction and a quilt stuck in the machine. This was a quilt stuck in the machine sort…

It’s been ages since I’ve really had the chance to do any sewing or quilting. I’ve hardly touched my sewing machines since Milli was born, but with two new babies due in the family in the next couple of months, I’ve gotten my sewing machine back out. Now, Mil is still much too little to…

A Guild Communique Quilt

By Andrea | February 7, 2019 |

A big thanks to Dottie and her quilt guild for sharing their version of the communique quilt, which their guild made as a challenge quilt last year. They did a beautiful job with the throw sized quilt. I absolutely love their use of border fabric. Have you made a communique quilt? buy female viagra online…

By Andrea | September 24, 2018 |

I was super excited to hear from the lovely Rhonda at RhondaDort.com that her Pink & Green Vintage Linens Quilt took 3rd Place at the MQX Midwest Quilt Show. Her quilt, which features pieces of vintage linens, was made using my Communique Quilt diagram in the throw size.  The finished product is lovely and reminds…
