A MINI ADVENTURE from That's Sew Kerry

When I Met Tula! 

I don't think I ever told you about the time I met Tula Pink - major fan girl moment, I was really impressed with myself that I actually managed to get whole sentences out and they even made some sense!

This was largely due to the fact that back then I wasn't overly brave when it came to fabric choices, colour palettes or block/pattern choices and had a real tendency to stick to what I knew and ...

Ocean Ponies mini quilt pattern from Flying Parrot Quilts

I’m excited to release a new paper pieced mini quilt pattern, Ocean Ponies! This time, I’m drawing on my roots as a marine scientist and featuring seahorses. I used mine and my husband’s favorite colors for the two seahorses—I think a mini like this would make a great wedding gift for a beach-loving couple!

There’s more, though: as usual, my paper pieced mini quilt patterns include more than one block, but this time, instead of giving you three different sizes, I thought I’d change things up a bit. Since the main pattern is a ...
