Stone Sheep Mini Quilt: Complete!

It is my great pleasure to share with you the completed Stone Sheep Mini quilt today! I put a lot of thought and time into alternate ways of finishing this mini quilt: should I stretch it across a canvas or frame it or put it in a shadow box? After exploring all my options, I opted for a black binding...

River Antoine Mini Quilt Finish

I decided to tackle basting the River Antoine Mini Quilt, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had enough floor space to baste it inside Wabi-Sabi Overland. The floor space is tight, as you can see. Our pull-out chest refrigerator is to the far left in the image, our kitchen is at the top of the image with...

Sparkler {Summer Sampler 2019}

I'm pretty sure no one is surprised about the skill that I discuss in this week's Summer Sampler 2019 block that I designed: transparency. I have focused a lot in the past on evaluating fabric in a monochromatic sense. But what if you want to move around the color wheel? Before I talk about moving around the color wheel, let's...

Easy Fat Quarter Bag

As you may have wondered when I shared about the Typecast J bag that I made for my older niece earlier this week... I also made a second bag to gift to my younger (2-year-old) niece at the same time. Giving a gift to one would have definitely created some sibling jealousy, so I knew better than to arrive...

Design Group Challenge: Crown Mini Quilt

One of the reasons I was motivated to finish the Butterfly Inspiration Mini Quilt a few weeks ago was that it was time for me to start working on the next design group challenge. In general, I like to finish one project before moving on to another (although quilt alongs and other long term projects definitely interrupt that general...

This week I was able to put the finishing touches on the mini quilt, and I really love how it finished. For the quilting, I started by drawing a long, continuous...
