WIP Wednesday

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 Read More …

Yellow Snow Mini Quilt

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.

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. I’m much more likely to decorate with anatomical hearts than real Read More …
