on the road again from Charm About You


Spider web blocks are not the fastest quilt blocks I've ever constructed and this quilt has taken me quite a while to complete. It was put away for a while but it is enjoyable seeing the pattern emerges as it grows and this was the year to get it done. I made the first few blocks as part of the Art Gallery Fabrics Quilt Block Collection Blog Tour back in 2017 and had only made 10 blocks when I pulled it out.


I got to work only to realise that I would run out of fabric. This quilt is ...

A Winter Wonderland: Snow Day Fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Happy Friday! 

Living in Florida, I never really experienced a whole Winter season! I’ve traveled up north before just to see the snow, and although I’ve experienced it a small number of times, seeing the snowfall for the first time is truly something magical. I automatically associate the winter season with things that I love most, hot chocolate, being with family, Christmas, and warm fuzzy sweaters. So, when I saw the Snow Day fabric collection by Mister Domestic, I was so thrilled to see so many prints that captured these special memories. 

Now for the past couple of ...

Weirdly enough I starting designing quilts on the computer before I even new how to put one together, which if you are starting out I definitely don ...
