Sew, Thanks!

I just realized it’s been almost 5 years we’ve been quilting and shopping together. Neat, huh? This year I’m thankful for my quilting and sewing community, friends, family, Comet, color, fabric, and pies. Those are in the oven right now. Happy Thanksgiving dear friends.

#ParkBenchQuilt Block 2

Here’s a peek at my process with Block 2. I’m really happy with how it’s coming together. I like to stack the fabrics so I can cut at least 4 at once. It pays to slow down a bit though, because any cutting errors will be in multiplied by four.

First look at #ParkBenchQuilt

Finally have some pictures to post of my Park Bench Block of the Month. The pattern from Jaybird Quilts/Julie Herman is so nice. Love love love the full color diagrams. You can even see where to put the clipped corners of the triangles. The fabric is all from Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander. We have the pattern, fabric and rulers in stock.



I got to use my new rulers, Sidekick and Hex N More which were actually fun to use.



And the results were pretty cool…




Portland SewDown

This weekend I’m thrilled to be heading to Portland OR for the Modern Quilt Guild’s SewDown. I’ll be taking classes from Julie Herman (JayBird Quilts), Lee Heinrich (Freshly Pieced), Sherri Lynn Wood (dainty time), and Heather Jones (Olive and Ollie)! And lecture presentations from Valori Wells, Bill Volckening, and Violet Craft. Needless to say I am excited.

It’s a nice bonus to visit my home state and favorite city. Wish me lots of happy sewing time and inspiration!

This week I love…
wifi on the train
light fluffy snow
a warm coat and coffee
