Weekend Sewing

Hey!  Did you have a good weekend?  Winter returned to our mountains, and we’ve been indoors all weekend.  While a little crazy with four kids inside, I did have a chance to sew – which helps me to cope!

 I received an advance bundle of Mark Cesarik’s next line, Cosmic Burst, and decided that I needed a mini […]

Last week I shared a photo of my cut pieces, and left you hanging…sorry about that!  I did post a few photos via Instagram (I’m amyscreativeside) and I’m really liking where the quilt is headed.

I’ve been on a flying geese kick lately, and the inspiration given, by my secret partner, lent itself to the stacking […]

I spent my evening with these little piles yesterday.  I signed myself up for a private flickr swap, and let my ideas stew for a while, but now I’m in action mode! 

I’ll share more soon!

Hi friends! I hope you had a great weekend!
I did get a bit of sewing done, I had a pile of pieces I had cut for another project, only to realize I cut them too small.
Those bits needed to be sew up into something!
I’m not certain what they will become yet, but I’m […]

I’ve been planning and just started a paper pieced project.   One of my favorite points in a project is when I’ve done all the math, cut all the fabric, and I’m ready to piece, and piece.

I’m excited to be using Preeti, a soon to be released collection by Blend Fabrics.  I’m loving, and using, […]

With fall just around the corner, and my girls starting school this week – I decided it’s time for a new fall bag, for myself!

I spent a few hours over the weekend, cutting and prepping all the pieces for a Sweet Harmony Tote, by Amy Butler.

The hard part is done; now to find the time […]

Have you covered a button in fabric lately?

It’s so fun to take a scrap and make a custom button!

I found my buttons on etsy  – there’s a variety of sizes available, for this project I went big with 1 1/2″ buttons.

Happy Sewing ~ Amy

My Doll Quilt Swap – Quilt Top!

By |August 2nd, 2011|Doll Quilt Swap, work in progress|22 Comments

Over the weekend, I had fun piecing this little gem!  I had been mulling over an idea for my Doll Quilt Swap quilt, and finally got to it!  Each block is finished at 4″, which means the overall quilt is 16″ x 16″, perfect doll quilt size.

Each block is paper pieced, an often intimidating skill, […]

Hey there!  Yesterday I finally had a chance to sit and sew — and it felt so good!

The methodical process, of piecing, pressing and making decisions as I work is like magic.  And I never tire of the process.  I know you can relate to that idea.  Now my little ones are gathering around, to […]
