Now that it has been received, I can share the...

Modern Plus Sampler {Finished Quilt}

I'm really pleased to be able to mark my final long term WIP off my 2020 goals; my Modern Plus Sampler quilt is finished! The air quality here continues to be atrocious, so no outdoor finish photos of the quilt. I have been suffering through a bit of depression; I could handle being home and only going to the grocery...

Bonus Bouquet {Finished Quilt}

What's even better than one quilt? Two! The curve star blocks and inset curve stars create scraps that are perfect for squaring up and creating drunkard's path blocks, so I designed a second quilt using an additional background fabric and the Pistils & Pollen scraps to showcase how Morrison Park looks against a darker background. I really adore how the...

Bonus Bouquet {Work in Progress}

I had a really fun and productive week quilting last week. The air quality in my California town continues to be bad enough that I am not able to go outdoors for my evening walk, and I started sewing in the evenings after dinner for a bit instead. I'm definitely stir crazy but thankful our area isn't near any...
