Positive Nap Quilt {Pieced Top / WiP}

Even with all the QuiltCon 2015 registration distractions yesterday, I was able to finish piecing the blocks for the Positive Nap Quilt. I really enjoyed spending time arranging the blocks. I wasn't sure it was going to be possible, but I was able to keep a fabric from repeating in each row and column. Even better, I was able...

SewDown Portland

I had a great weekend at #SewDownPortland. The rare snowstorm that affected the area did not seem to dampen anyone's spirits. I made it home (a day later than originally planned...) with 5 new projects. I can't wait to share them with you! The tire tracks in snowy downtown Portland streets reminded me of tumbling blocks! I was so thankful to...
