Current State of my Quilting Studio

I shared my quilting studio space via Instagram yesterday, and thought I better keep it real, and put it up here too! It looks pretty messy still, but it’s all picked up and I can walk around a bit – huge improvement!

My Melody is dropped into the little table on the left, Crown Jewel is […]

The fabrics are Modern Neutrals (of course!) and I paired two traditional blocks for a unique “Layered Look”. […]

This quilt has been in the works since April, I think! It’s fairly simple, and was pieced quickly, but I wanted to build my confidence before I loaded it on the long-arm. Looking at it now, I’m glad I waited a bit!

I call it “Formation”, as I’m reminded of a flock of geese as I […]

Quilted Scrappy Solution

By |May 8th, 2013|Long Arm Quilting, My kids, work in progress|3 Comments

When I originally pieced this quilt top, I called it my Scrappy Solution…four years later it’s quilted! This pattern actually made it’s way into Modern Basics, as Twisted Bars,  if you are interested in making your own.

 I had thought I would add a binding then show it off, but it won’t be happening this week. […]

I have […]

My New Baby

Technically, it’s bigger, and heavier than my kiddos, but a new sewing machine is just as exciting around here!

My friends at Baby Lock have provided the Crown Jewel, a 18″ long arm, in exchange for some projects and tutorials for all of you and their loyal readers!  It’s a win-win situation :)  (Yep! That’s a […]
