Irish Autumn {Q4 Just for Fun, Finished Quilt}

After sharing progress on my Q4 Just for Fun quilt last week, I was excited to keep the momentum going. In fact, I was so excited that in only one more evening of sewing, I was able to get all the blocks pieced... ... and I even got the entire quilt top sewn together!

Q3 Just for Fun {Piecing Progress}

Piecing progress on this just for fun quilt started off slowly last weekend but it really started to pick up momentum this week. I took some progress photos to show a bit about how I puzzled through putting the blocks together. I had 4 blocks to begin with based on the Bonus HST tutorial that I created . So to...

2023 Q3 Just for Fun Quilt Fabric Pull

A week ago, I shared the Bonus HSTs from Stitch and Flip Tutorial and Table. In order to test out the math and make the tutorial, I pulled a few fabrics from my stash. Several of you commented on the lovely fabrics, and I heartily agree! The prints I used are from Leslie Tucker Jenison's Urban Garden line for...
