Three done, and […]

Here I am!

By |January 28th, 2013|Me, work in progress|5 Comments

I’ve missed this space and all of you in the last week!

While technically I was home, here, around the house everyday, a large portion of it has been spent working at Sundance.  Every year, the Sundance Film Festival is huge here where we live, and I usually avoid the crowded areas, to maintain normal life […]

Modern Basics II en masse! Yay, my books arrived!

I admitted that I really do like sushi.

Bee block in the mail – a fun surprise.

Sunday afternoon block sewing.  One is for a fun quilt-along this week, and the rest are my experimentation.

My silly kids – she had been collecting hairbands…big sister helped her out!

I hope you had […]

I’m really looking forward to 2013!

I’ve got lots to share with you in the coming months, (as I’m able) and can’t wait to see what opportunities come as well.

Of course January starts off with the release of Modern Basics II!

 The follow up to my first book, offers skill builders, and simply fun quilts to add […]

Weekend Sewing

By |December 10th, 2012|work in progress|5 Comments

I had a busy week last week, which meant I didn’t manage to get to my sewing machine at all, but I made it a priority over the weekend! I hope you had a good weekend – I had been feeling restless without any machine time (relate much?) and love how sewing soothes my soul.

First, […]

B is for Brayden

By |December 4th, 2012|work in progress|4 Comments

Baby quilts are always the most fun to sew up and give to the growing family!  A few friends and I got together and had fun scheming a baby quilt for Natalia, and her boy Brayden!

This is the part that I pieced – Candy dyed the beautiful fabrics, then shipped to me and Amy.  I […]

A Quilty Weekend

By |November 19th, 2012|work in progress|10 Comments

Hi friends!  I hope you had a great weekend!  It’s been rainy here; a perfect excuse to stay inside and quilt – which is exactly what I did. 

I started the weekend by focusing on my hexagon quilt.  I added swirls to the white hexagons, and really enjoyed the process.  Once I got warmed up, I […]

Bits of Sewing

By |November 14th, 2012|work in progress|8 Comments

Just a quick post to check in with you!

Yesterday I appliqued my hexies to the background fabric with a blanket stitch on my machine.

I also finished up a quick quilt top with these Dear Stella fabrics.

It’s been too cold to get outside comfortably and take actual photos, I’ll work on that as it warms a […]

Hexie Progress

I have really enjoyed this handwork project! And today I’m excited to share a full look at the completed paper piecing!  If you’ve been following me on instagram, you know that this has been my creative focus this last month.  I decided just after Sewing Summit (which I still need to recap!) that I wanted […]

Works In Progress

I’ve been loving my hexie’s!  Here’s where I’m at so far in sewing the pieces together:

They go together pretty fast – I’m using 3/4″ templates that I purchased at PaperPieces. I’m excited to see these come together more!

 I bound an entire quilt, by machine.  In the past I’ve experimented with it on smaller items, table runners […]

Hexagon Sewing

By |October 18th, 2012|work in progress|12 Comments

Remember I told you I had a plan for my hexies? I haven’t managed to organize and cut my scraps to size, but I did pick up a little bit of Cotton Couture!

This is all the sewing I’ve done so far this week – I’m hoping to continue quilting my Button Box quilt soon, and […]

Prep Day!

By |October 4th, 2012|The Sewing Summit, work in progress|4 Comments

Yesterday I cut and prepped fabric for three projects!

Fabrics for my Sewing Summit class arrived earlier this week, and so I need to make a sample!  All the blocks are cut, and ready to sew.  Fabrics are “Handle with Care” for Robert Kaufman – super cute!

I need to make a bunting for a mixer at […]
