I was utterly blown away and surprised to learn that I won a prize for linking up to the Project Quilting 14.1 challenge with my {One} lime green placemat. Thank you so very much to Blue Bar Quilts for this...

December Stash Acquisitions {Color Girl Quilts}

I "met" Sharon from Color Girl Quilts many years ago through one of the New Quilt Bloggers blog hop series. Sharon is the creator of the Classic Curves ruler. I happened to see on Instagram that she is closing her Color Girl Quilts shop, so I decided it was a good time to support her and pick up a...

June Through September Stash Kona Club Fabric

When my husband and I were finalizing our plans to move, I knew it was going to throw a curve ball to Stash Fabrics in their delivery of my monthly Kona Club fabric. They were fabulous and understanding, and they were able to wait to ship my July and August fabric at the same time. I received the June...

Current Stash Fabrics Kona Club Storage Solution

I have officially received one third of the Stash Fabrics Kona Club fabric. In January, I wasn't sure how I was going to store all this fabric so I put it all back in the box it was shipped in and tucked it away in my "super closet" for later consideration. I am getting a yard of each color,...

Stash Fabrics Kona Club {February}

While I was on my two week staycation, I received my  Stash Fabrics Kona Club fabrics for February. When I opened the box, I appreciated the ombré fade from light to dark. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a lovely shift in value! I'm thinking these fabrics are going to end up displayed in our living room bookshelf. Stay...

Everything in her shop is discounted, and I picked up a few items from her shop that arrived last week.

Love is Love Pride Fabric Collection

A few years ago, Mathew Boudreaux (whom you may likely know as Mister Domestic) reached out to see if I had the time to make something with his newest fabric collection. Unfortunately, the timing didn't work out due to some other commitments that I had. Fast forward to about a month ago, and he reached out again to see...

Stash Fabrics - Pulsar Backing (Kona Cotton Nightfall) and Matching Aurifil Thread from Red Rock Threads

April Stash Acquisitions

It all started innocently enough (as most things do, right)? I needed to place an order for enough Kona Cotton Nightfall for the backing of Pulsar. I also needed to get more matching Aurifil thread, 2784 (Dark Navy) for the Nightfall for the quilting. Well, since I was shopping at Stash Fabrics for the Nightfall, I started thinking about what...

Works in Progress

I am currently working on a lot of different "secret sewing" projects, which is both exciting and frustrating. I definitely look forward to being able to share details about these projects when I can (stay tuned for more about some on Friday), but it's frustrating because I have less that I can share and talk about in the mean...

The Confident Stitch {Stash Enhancement}

To be perfectly honest, my stash of prints looks a lot more like scraps to most people. The first shelf above my sewing machine has 12 small, clear plastic bins that hold the majority of my print stash (I also have a dedicated Carolyn Friedlander large bin on the second shelf right now, too). I tend to add fat quarters,...

I used my curated 6 fat quarter bundle to make a baby size version of my Bundle Buster pattern. Well, Bernie thought ahead and had a fun surprise for us all for the end of the year:...

Stash Acquisitions

Continuing the recap from my time in Greenville, South Carolina... To unwind together on Saturday evening after a full day of teaching (me) and sewing (Cheryl), we watched Christopher (The Tattooed Quilter)'s recent webinar for the MQG: Perfecting the Perfect Flat Lay (note that the webinar link only works if you are an MQG member and logged into the MQG website)....
