A Sewing Funk

By Andrea | February 22, 2016 |

I haven’t been down in my sewing space for ages.  I wish I could say that I have a good excuse, like the fact that it’s freezing down there (in my defense it is), or that my sewing table needs to be replaced/repaired (it does), but honestly, I think I would work around those things…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | January 6, 2016 |

The new season of Project Quilting has started, which is great. I love having inspiration for sewing projects.  This week’s challenge is “confetti,” so I did a little research on Pinterest for ideas and came across a quilt by St. Louis Folk Victorian that I love. I’m using it as inspiration for my own little…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | December 30, 2015 |

It’s the last WIP Wednesday post of the year.  I’ve made a lot of progress on things this year, but I’ve still got more projects going than I would like. Maybe that’s something I could work on in the new year. This week has been all about hanging sleeves.  I’m midway through putting hanging sleeves…

Anna’s Hardest Quilt – The Star of Bethlehem

By Anna | December 11, 2015 |

So I took some pictures of my hardest quilt. I literally cried over this one before I was done. Little did I know that “Star of Bethlehem” (aka Lone Star, Witness, and several other names) is considered one of the toughest patterns. Why? Because if your template is the least bit “off”, it won’t work. …

Focus Through the Prism Challenge Review

By Andrea | December 4, 2015 |

For the last seven months, I’ve created a 20″ mini quilt each month.  Those quilts were all part of the Focus Through the Prism Challenge over at Project Quilting. At first, I didn’t think I would be participating in the challenge, because I had to buy special fabric from Cherrywood to participate, and I was…

WIP Roundup

By Andrea | November 25, 2015 |

It’s been a while since I did a full WIP post, where I actually talked about all of the projects I have going, instead of just the ones I’m actively working on. And with my holiday break coming up, I feel like this is a great time to remind myself you what all I really…

Friday Favorites – Winter Sewing Patterns

By Andrea | November 20, 2015 |

It’s the time of year to start thinking about those little holiday sewing projects you’d like to get done. Maybe as a gift, or just for yourself.  So, I’ve gathered up a few of my personal favorite projects that are QUICK, EASY, and FREE. Make an Infinity Scarf Flamingo Toes has an amazing tutorial for…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | November 11, 2015 |

It’s been a busy sewing week here at MiMP.  I started and completed my final Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenge quilt.  This month was snowball blocks, and the only color I had left to work with was yellow, so that made for an interesting project. I also started making blocks for my creepy…

Yellow Snow Mini Quilt

By Andrea | November 9, 2015 |

November is the final month for the Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism challenges.  This month’s block was the Snowball, a super simple block that can be used in a lot of interesting ways. For this month’s quilt, the only color I had left to work with was Yellow.  And, of course, the first thing…

Communique Quilt

By Andrea | November 2, 2015 |

I’m very excited to share my latest finish with all of you! A brand new king size bed quilt!  I finished piecing the top ages ago, but it just recently made it’s trip to the long arm quilter. I got it back in July, just before our move, so I didn’t get around to binding…
