"Max the Cat " Zipper Key Chain Pouch Tutorial from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Even though it still very much feels like the dead of summer here in South Florida the kids are heading back to school! Even as an adult I love walking through the aisles of school supplies and reminisce about my Mom bringing me and my sibling's school shopping every year.  I love how my Mom would write our full names on all of our school supplies so we wouldn't lose them or get them confused with someone else's supplies.  Another fond memory I have about back to school is in every one of my Mom's handmade ...

A New Christmas Quilt Pattern! from Gray Barn Designs

Cindy here, reporting in from Ohio.  I did a lot of sewing this past weekend and finished a beautiful Christmas quilt that Sandy designed.

For the patchwork squares, Sandy combined four 10 inch blocks (finished size) to make one large 20 inch block (finished size).

We were looking for just the right fabric line for Sandy’s design and fell in love with “Little Tree” by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics.  What do you think?

As a child, I used to love to hear stories of magical worlds filled with unexplained beauty, make-believe creatures, and stories that would my take your mind on an insightful journey packed with adventure and possibilities. 

Alexandra Bordallo’s debut collection for AGF called Dew and Moss brings me back to my youth with her whimsy prints illustrating a world where gnomes play in their gardens and live in their mushroom houses. Not only are all the prints super adorable, but the color palette is what caught my eye right away. The shades of green mixed with the wonderful pops ...

Did you grow up in a fishing family? My Dad growing up would go fishing with his brothers as often as they could all throughout the Summer months and it would turn into ice fishing in the Winter months. Growing up I always wanted to learn but never got the chance. I love being on the water though, kayaking and enjoying the lake life and Mister Domestic’s fabric collection called Catch and Release has me wanting to hit the water for a relaxing lazy day. 



I decided to sew up the “Flying Star” block which shows off the relaxing ...

International Sister Block from Sew Preeti Quilts

I first came across the African queen block in 2017.
The newest one

I hunted for the pattern/tutorial but found nothing. I drafted the pattern.

I called Bernie on the west coast, knowing that she was likely to be awake. True to my expectations, Bernie was a mountain of encouragement.
Bernie:  I'd be happy to sell it in my Etsy store.
Me: You are very kind.
