Today I have for you Sue & Sam in Nebraska and Idaho. I know it seems like it’s been a while, but 12 Days kept me very busy as did the rest of December and January.  Because I’m also trying to finish up Twas the Night I have held off doing these and at the same time, I do expect to have at least two releases per month over the next few months of 2 states per release. I need to finish Twas The Night which is just two more blocks and then it’s done and we’ll ...

Twas The Night B21 and B22 Released… Along With Valentine Animals… from Seams To Be Sew

I really wanted to get these done in December, but block 22 has so much detail it has literally taken me the last 3 weeks to write this pattern. By itself, it has 158 pages in the pdf. It’s mainly the embroidery section, the block just has a lot of detail. With it being 2020, I’ve also made a small change to my patterns for the new year and I hope you’ll like the change… You’ll see it in every 2020 pattern this year. If you were here yesterday, you saw the free pattern I’m ...

In the Studio this Week… from Jacquelynne Steves

First of all– can you believe it’s really 2020? And can you believe that we are 3/4 of the way through the first month of 2020?? Doesn’t it sound like science fiction? But here we are. And we don’t even have space cars yet. The Jetsons would be super disappointed…

Anyway, you know what never goes out of style?? Sewing. (Great segue, right???) I took off the second half of December to spend time with family, but over the past few weeks I’ve been trying to catch up… I don’t like starting the new ...

Texture & Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Scarlet Macaw colour board at Clever Chameleon Quilting

Have you ever played with texture on a quilt?

3D challenge logo by Island Batik

You know me, I often like to experiment with texture and embellishments in my quilt projects. Quilting is for me where “art meets sewing”. Two itches, one colossal scratching!

So when Island Batik announced that December was 3D month for the 2019 Ambassadors, I was in both ecstasy and agony. Right up my alley…. but, oh! Which alley to choose!?!? Thing is, I just about need a street directory for all my alleys. I didn’t even have to make up any new projects for this challenge, and I still had ...

Sunbonnet Sue and Sam In Florida Released… from Seams To Be Sew

I was hoping to get this posted yesterday, but I forgot that it was my day at the doctor’s. Sometimes it’s just in and out and other times it’s half the day. Yesterday was one of those half the day kind of things. I’d had an infection in both my feet for the last few weeks, so she couldn’t do her normal thing four weeks ago when I was last in, Two weeks ago it was canceled due to a snowstorm in the area. My doctor drives in from Denver to treat people on Wednesdays ...
