WIP Wednesday

Sewing has been slow going this week. I just haven’t felt inspired to do much. But I did get a couple more eye spy blocks finished.  They are coming along nicely, though there are no where near enough yet. The most blocks I have of any one color are blue. There are 5 of those Read More …

WIP & Pranks

Happy April 1st! I hear that I’m supposed to be tricking you all, but I don’t think that will actually be happening. As a child, I never liked being the target of April Fools Day pranks- probably because I got picked on enough the rest of the year. Fortunately, As I’ve grown up, I’ve found Read More …

#ProjectQuilting – Charm Squares

This week’s Project Quilting challenge, “It’s a Charm” was all about using charm squares. I love using charm squares in my projects, but this challenge was a little difficult for me because I could *only* use charm squares for the front of the quilt. I’ve been thinking about making myself a Dresden plate quilt, and Read More …

Creation Quilt – #AnnaInSpain

This week we’re sharing another project by my wonderful internet friend, Anna in Spain! More from Anna below: This is the quilt I think of with the greatest satisfaction. The “design” itself is no big deal, just appliqued hearts, but the fabrics are wonderful, considering that they are all scraps that were gifted to me Read More …

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

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 …
