Today’s Happiness

I went to the mailbox, and look what I found! The fabric fairy paid me a visit—in the form of A.J. Dub from Harriet the Homemaker Strikes Again. It’s my first swap fabric ever—so exciting!Not only did she send me an adorable holiday FQ for the Ho-Ho-Holiday Swap, she also threw in this cute pink […]

Wordless Wednesday

Okay, not so much. (As my husband would surely tell you, I’m bad at “wordless”. ) My Kissy Fish quilt is being featured on GenX Quilters today! Head over there and check out Anne Marie’s excellent blog, if you haven’t already. And Spoonflower linked up to my blog on their Facebook page yesterday! Thank you, […]

Spoonflowering

So, who else out there has tried out Spoonflower? I’ve been dabbling in it for over a year now, and every time I get something printed with them, I love it a little more. The first time I heard about it, I got positively giddy: You mean you can get anything you want printed as […]

Three Generations Top

My Three Generations quilt top is finally done and off to the long-arm quilter. What a relief! My goal with this quilt was to create something that was both vintage and modern at the same time. I wanted it to look as though it owed something to every time period during which it was worked […]

Circles

Today’s happiness: Perfect little yellow circles, ready to be appliqued onto my Three Generations quilt. Twenty of ’em, ready to go! Aren’t they cute? I used this tutorial to make my circles. (For what it’s worth, I don’t have the mylar circles mentioned in the tutorial. I made my own circle template out of sturdy […]

A Brand New Plan

So I have completely scrapped my original plan for the Three Generations quilt. I made some of the alternating blocks (as shown in my digital “sketch” in this post). Somehow those blocks were both too plain, and took away too much of the focus away from the vintage pinwheel blocks. I’m not sure how it […]

Fall Equinox

The equinox was yesterday (or today, depending on where you are in the world), and what better way to celebrate fall than by finishing a quilt top in some lovely autumnal colors? My Fat Quarterly Quilt Along top is done! And I completely love it! I was a few blocks short of what was needed […]

The Fabric Fairy

So my 4-year-old and I walked down to the mailbox together on Friday, and oh happy day, there was fabric in there. It was the “Doe, a Deer” custom bundle from Fabric Worm. (I’m trying to collect enough pink and green fat quarters to make a bed-sized quilt for my daughter.) As I pulled that […]
