My Day on the Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop from The Inquiring Quilter

Welcome to my day on the Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop!

spring clean blog hop button.jpg

Four years ago (yes, that long!) I wrote a series of posts giving you a tour of my sewing studio. You’ll find links to those posts at the end of this post. I share my sewing room with my husband who is also self-employed. The room is over the garage and so it’s larger than a normal bedroom.

Here’s what my studio looked like back then…

When I got serious about quilting as a business four years ago, I came up ...

Spring Cleaning… from Seams To Be Sew

I didn’t need to do too much to clean my sewing room. While I’m not a sloppy person I don’t let little things bother me either… I also am not someone who just throws things around, when I’m done working with a project everything gets put back into place when I am working on something it’s stored in a little bin by my machines or cutting areas. I’m currently working on two blocks of the month projects, so those parts are hanging about my sewing and cutting areas. A few years ago I did ...

Farmhouse Fresh book tour and giveaway from Moda Lissa

I am obsessed about everything Farmhouse. ( thank you Joanna Gaines)

Love the fresh look.

Love the timeless style.

Love the classic simplicity.

I have hunted for vintage grain sacks/ toweling and paid big bucks for it. When Moda started making toweling many years ago it became a basic but people still asked what do I do with it? Moda’s toweling is available by the yard, hemmed on 2 sides and assorted designs
and fabric weights.

In steps Jenelle Kent, taking toweling to a whole new level as shown in her new book, Farmhouse Fresh.

Adding appliqué is just one ...

Color It Red…. Day 04 is here at Seams To Be Sew Today… from Seams To Be Sew

When I join a blog hop I like it to do something that challenges me. That hasn’t always been how it’s worked out, but for the most part I like to do things I haven’t done before or try new techniques that interest me. For as long as I can remember I have had a love for Sashiko. Back in the ’90s at a quilt show, I saw this absolutely gorgeous quilt that I just fell in love with. While I’m not a blue person, her quilt was dark blue and used a white thread. I ...

Row Addition Baby Boy Quilt! from Busy Hands Quilts

Another 2019 finish that needs it's day to shine on the blog is a Row Addition baby quilt!  


This quilt design is from the book Modern Plus Sign Quilts and is one of many fantastic Plus quilts in the book which is written by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs and Paige of Quilted Blooms.  I made two baby quilts at the same time for their book hop in 2018, but it took me a year to get this one quilted and bound.  You can see the other one right here.

I’m having some Winter Blues….. from Seams To Be Sew

I am definitely blue if there is no snow on the ground during Winter… I love love love snow as some of you know from my postings on my Facebook personal page. I often post pictures when we get snow and we’ve now been weeks without some snow, even a hint of it…. nada… We had such a good start to Winter with 4 or 5 snow storms between October and November but then.. BOOM, they just went away… I’ve never been a fan of the color blue, it does remind me of being down and sad… However ...
