Today, I have a new mini quilt pattern available in my pattern shop: Playful Partial Seams! I created this mini quilt pattern as an introduction into some of the techniques needed for my larger quilt pattern, Sesen. I often find that a lower risk, small project like a mini quilt is the perfect way to try out new techniques...

Sesen Bonus Quilt {Quilting Plan}

In early February, I finished piecing the Sesen bonus quilt top. I was not sure how I wanted to quilt it, and I had another project I wanted to complete for a friend, so the Sequenced quilt top got set aside for over a month. Over the weekend, I decided it was time to sit down and put some...

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...

The baby size version of Planview finishes at 40" x 48", which will be a fun size to quilt on my domestic Juki TL-2200 QVP Mini. Before putting a lot of thought into...

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...

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...

Sesen Bonus Quilt {Pieced Top}

Last week, knowing that I would be working on getting all the blocks sewn together for the Sesen Bonus Quilt, I decided to run a few polls in my Instagram stories allowing people to vote on the layout for the top. I was surprised that the majority of people voted for Option B. A and B are very similar, but...

Sesen Bonus Quilt {First Block}

Crazy as it may sound, I am thankful for my seam ripper. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. I chain pieced the center four-patch of quarter circle blocks for all 12 blocks, and they came together just fine. But when I sewed on the bottom border for my test block, it looked a little bit funny when...

Short and sweet for my update today: I was able to get all the Sesen Bonus Quilt 5½" quarter circles trimmed square. This is the pile of trimmings, turned into one #FriendlyFabric Monster. I like the way the monster appears to be leaving a trail of lint and dust behind it as it sweeps across my cutting mat. I used...

Sesen Bonus Quilt {Cutting and Prep}

One of my favorite aspects of piecing Curve Star Blocks and Inset Curve Stars are the large scraps that are left over. As I was piecing Sesen, I set aside the large Kumquat and Coral scraps knowing that I'd be making a bonus quilt using them soon. In early November (I thought it was just a month ago, wow,...
