Red, Cream, and Blue Mug Rugs

I'm continuing to work my way through the remainder of my red, cream, and blue scraps left over from making the Digital Wave table runner, and I think I can safely say I have used up as much of the fabric as I can. Last week and over the weekend, I eeked out two matching mug rugs. I made the...

Red, Cream, and Blue Placemats

Last week, I was happy to find that I had plenty of remaining red, cream, and blue fabric left over from the Digital Wave table runner to piece two placemat tops. There wasn't a LOT of fabric, so I decided to keep it very simple and just create bands of color. Too many more seams and I wouldn't have...

Digital Wave Table Runner

I'm super pleased that I was able to get the red, cream, and blue Digital Wave table runner complete. Not that I'm feeling especially patriotic this year for 4th of July, given the state of affairs of politics in America, but I think that almost makes it more important to claim that I, too, also belong. I, too, am...

Garden Peony {Finished Quilt}

I love finishing the binding of my quilts by hand. That doesn't mean I hand bind all of my projects; I'm not totally crazy! Sometimes it's more practical to finish binding by machine, but I definitely enjoyed the process of getting to spend a bit more time with Garden Peony as I stitched the binding to the back by...

Meringue {Finished Quilt}

Today is a doubly good day; my brother is celebrating a milestone birthday today (happy birthday, C!) and I have a quilt finish to share! I had a lot of fun adding the quilting detail to Meringue. I started in the center and quilted my way from darkest to lightest and then finished with the background quilting. As I mentioned...

Rainbow Circle Mini Mini Quilts

After spending a few weeks quilting the Sequenced quilt, I had some computer work to catch up on. Then I second guessed my initial fabric pull for my next project (I'll share a blog post about that when the replacement fabric arrives), so instead of jumping into another big project, I decided it was time to have the joy...

Sequenced Quilt

The quilting on Sequenced, the bonus Sesen quilt, came together much quicker than I anticipated, and I just love the additional texture and detail it gives the design! Sequenced is a 60" x 80" quilt, which was a comfortable size for my husband to hold inside when we tested out holding the quilt... but he had to balance on his...

Planview {QAL Finish}

I'm really happy to get to share the finished Planview quilt that I made during the quilt along. I made the baby size in the lava colorway, and I couldn't be happier with how it all came together! As much as I love a good all over finish photograph, I wanted to lead with a photo of the back of...

Partial Seams Mini Quilt

As I suspect many have felt over the past weeks watching the news unfold about Russia's invasion of Ukraine, I have felt helpless. I have purchased digital patterns via Etsy from Ukrainian sellers. You may have already seen it, but I really love the Rise of Freedom pattern by Sashas Quilts. I have donated money to care and aid...

Curve Star Mini Quilt

I spent a large part of my two week staycation working on a secret project for a friend. At the end of last week, I got to a natural stopping place in that project and took a break to sew up something quick for the satisfaction of having a finish that used up some scraps. I had 4 convex curves...

Old School BOM {Finished Quilt}

I had a really productive week last week which set me up for finishing up my Old School BOM quilt over the weekend. I'm really amazed that it's January 3rd and I'm sharing my first quilt finish for the year! I really like how all the Carolyn Friedlander prints work together in the blocks, and I opted to go for...
