I Am Enough Quilt Along Top Finish from A Ditchin' Time Quilts


Finally finished this quilt top!  I have loved making all the squares. I am using all my mom's old fabric from her stash that I inherited when she passed away.  Every time I look at this quilt it reminds me of her.  It reminds me of all the things she made of these fabrics.  It gives me such happiness to see this come together.  

Check out Havel's Sewing Blog for their wonderful sewing tools and batting! There you can find this pattern, designed by Melanie from Southern Charm Quilts. Just such fun! Details here!

Fabric Pandemonium from Life in the Scrapatch



Pink Pandemonium
I asked my hubby for a word to caption this photo using the word color,
and he said "Pink Pandemonium."
Good choice,
so I am using a variation of it in my post title, too.

I did point out to him that there are a lot more colors than pink here.
The blues on the top are my background fabrics,
intended to cool down the palette.

These fabrics are my stash pull for the

A Creative Homage: Art District Fusion from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Have you ever spent a day exploring an artsy neighborhood?! You’d probably start your day, grabbing a cup of coffee at a cute cafe, wander in and out of art galleries, browse small shops that are filled with unique, artisanal crafts, and of course, spend some time photographing all the amazing murals you’d unexpectedly find in alleyways. In Florida, if you're looking to see some street art or explore some unique shops, galleries, plant stores and delicious cafes, our biggest art district here is "Wynwood" which is a fun place to head to! If you were here ...

a few (mostly fabric) additions from Charm About You

City Nights by Lewis and Irene quilting fabric

One of the things I love about visiting a quilt shop is getting to see fabric collections you've seen online, in real life. I was teaching at Patchfinders the other day and, after ogling City Nights by Lewis and Irene on my laptop, some had to come home with me! It has lovely touches of metallic, just enough sparkle without being too much. I fell for, from left to right: Architectural Blender in copper on light and City Buildings in copper and copper on multi. The copper glistens so beautifully and the colours are totally my style.

While I ...

Hi everybody!  I am taking part in Havel's Sewing Quilt Along.  Melanie Taylor from Southern Charm Quilts designed the quilt and gives us directions.  Here is my first block:




This is all we know about what it will look like!  It's a surprise.


Moxie always helps!

I hand appliquéd the color wheel on top of my background fabric after I tacked down the lace.  

These are my fabrics I selected for the quilt along.  They are ALL from my mom's stash including fabric from her night gown. (see below)

Destash and Declutter from Carol Lyles Shaw

Destash and Declutter!  I decided that it was time to really clear the clutter in my studio and ‘overflow’ fabric storage.  So, starting in late July,   I took some serious steps to clear my sewing space and fabric storage.

Just a glimpse at the piles of fabric sort of in project bins….There’s more of this clutter all over the sewing room!

Destash and Declutter Inspiration

I started by listening to a wonderful series of podcasts by Nadia, who is an organization coach in the UK.  Her blog is called Clear The Decks and it’s a perfect title ...
