Project Quilting – Hearts

By Andrea | February 20, 2015 |

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…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | February 18, 2015 |

With #NaBloPoMo this month, I’ve been a bit of a slacker getting my WIP Wednesday posts up, but I’m happy to report that no only did I remember to write up this WIP post, but I have stuff to share! My everyday sewing machine has been in the shop for the last week. Apparently they’re…

Wilmington Prints Trunk Show

By Andrea | February 17, 2015 |

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…

Project Quilting – Orphan Blocks

By Andrea | February 6, 2015 |

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…

Project Quilting – Sunrise/Sunset

By Andrea | January 23, 2015 |

This week’s Project Quilting challenge was Sunrise/Sunset. As soon as I saw the theme I knew what I wanted to do. It had to be something related to Fiddler of the Roof. I love musicals and the song “Sunrise Sunset” from Fiddler on the Roof is one of my favorites. So without further ado, I…

My first attempt at using the flower stitch foot

Works in Progress

By Andrea | January 21, 2015 |

This week I feel like I’ve gotten a lot of sewing done, at least as compared to last week. I completed another round of project quilting- a post about my completed project will be up on Friday. And I did some testing with my new flower stitch foot.  Apparently I’m not smart enough to use…

Works in Progress

By Andrea | January 14, 2015 |

I have to admit to being a complete slacker and getting almost no sewing accomplished since my last WiP post. I did finish up my mini quilt for the 1st Project Quilting challenge of the season. You can vote for your favorites until 8:00pm CST on Friday, January 16th, 2015. The only other thing that…

Project Quilting – Trees

By Andrea | January 9, 2015 |

I’m so excited to finally get a chance to participate in Project Quilting. This is it’s 6th season, but I just discovered it at the end of last season, so I didn’t get a chance to participate. The idea behind project quilting is to complete a new quilting project each week. The first project theme…

Works in Progress

By Andrea | January 7, 2015 |

The new year has started off pretty well for me, at least as far as my quilting goes. I finished Rayden’s baby quilt. I’m almost done with the 1st Project Quilting Challenge. I just need to add my binding to it. And with the help of my MIL, I finally got the impromptu quilt basted.…

Rayden’s Baby Quilt

By Andrea | January 2, 2015 |

I’m super excited that my first quilting finish of 2015 came on the 1st of the year. But even more than that, I’m thrilled that the quilt will be for my nephew Rayden. My step-brother Jeremy and his wife Cassie are due to have a little boy in February, and this quilt is for him.…
