Final blocks for the Winter Flurries mystery sew along with FWFS from Carried Away Quilting


Somehow or other, life got crazy in my neck of the woods, and I fell behind on a couple of projects. But I’m all caught up with my blocks for the “Winter Flurries” mystery sew along with Fort Worth Fabric Studio. Last night and this morning I sewed up the blocks from week three and four.  Next week we’ll be putting this little quilt together!


The week three assignment was the easy, peasy Flying Geese blocks, while we sewed up the beautiful Christmas Star blocks for week four. Now that I have all the pieces and parts, I ...

A New Pattern + Weekend Reading from Blossom Heart Quilts

Early last year, I was a part of my guild’s Liberty quilting bee. There were six of us, so it ran for six months and each month we made two blocks for the queen, and all our blocks were to be made predominantly with Liberty fabric. Fun!

One huge reason I love Liberty fabric is the fussy cutting potential. There are so many cute novelty prints and those with unique motifs that lend perfectly to fussy cutting. So I figured I’d put my bee to work to making me some fussy cut economy square quilt blocks for me ...

Actually its been around for a very long time aka
"Square in a Square" block.

All fabrics were cut into sizes I needed to make
LARGE Economy blocks.I like to kit up a project when I travel...or in this case

Freedom from Sewn With Curves


How the year has flown by. I didn't believe adults when I was younger telling me that time just flies by as you get older but I am a believer. Now that I am 40, I can only imagine how quickly things will happen. Fingers crossed that I am ready for it.

I lost my sewing mojo for a while, hence the lack of posts in recent months. This was the first time in years that I didn't sew everyone's Christmas presents. I have decided to not put any stress on myself for any reason to finish ...
