Two Blocks -LHQSQ 2.0 from Gene Black an Alabama Artist

For the Left-Handed Quilter Sampler quilt along,  I have made my first two blocks.  Since there are 99 blocks to choose from and we are only making 25 of them, we can choose which ones we want to make.
My fabrics for this will be mostly Kaffe Fassett by Free Spirit.  The 10" squares and some charm packs were on sale and I couldn't resist the colorful delights.

The pieces were cut with my Accuquilt Go! cutter using the 8" Qube set.  These are 6 inch finished blocks, but the 2" square and 2" half-square triangles from that set ...

Who Is Scott Fortunoff and Why Should I care? from Cheryl Lynch Quilts

Last year soon after the wholesale Fall Quilt Market, there was an "earthquake" in the quilt world.  What we all thought was one of the most successful fabric manufacturing company, Free Spirit, was closing their doors. How could this happen we all wondered?  They were home to some of the most popular fabric designers - Tula Pink, Kaffe Fassett, Amy Buttler and on and on.  Not only were we surprised, but so were the designers themselves.  

Social media was a buzz as we waited to see what would happen to these talented designers.  Where would they land?  Would they each negotiate ...

Lever Arch file cover and Tula Pink from Charm About You



I am pleased as punch (stationery pun intended) with my Lever Arch file cover, designed to pretty up those boring plain files. Mine has been filled with sewing patterns but you can use it for whatever you like! Keep it simple using one fabric or add in some patchwork and embellish to your hearts content. There are so many possibilities for personalising this with patchwork, appliqué or embroidery. 



The spine of the file has a vinyl pocket for a label, so it is practical as well as pretty.


This first edition was made with Blueberry Park by Karen Lewis Textiles ...

Look What's On My Wall, Y'All! I Cannot Follow the Directions, After All from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Check out my design wall this lovely morning.  I cut out all of my triangles!  Except now I'm about to cut out MORE triangles and start swapping out fabrics that I don't love from the original design.


Ready To Sew...  Maybe
This Tabby Mountain project was going to be my first ever quilt where I follow all of the directions, use all the same fabrics as the quilt designer, and make mine look just like the sample, because I was totally smitten by this adorable quilt featuring Tula Pink's Tabby Road prints and I had already purchased ...

Sweater Weather for Quilty Magazine from Sew Fresh Quilts




Earlier this year, I was contacted by Quilty magazine. I was also approached to make a submission for a quilt to be featured in an upcoming issue. This was the design I settled on.


Elaborating on an earlier quilt I made called Ugly Christmas Sweaters, I drew up a revised design on grid paper and wrote myself out a pattern to follow. Then set to work cutting all the pieces. This design includes life size sweaters, mittens and hats.










The front is made using a new collection by Tula Pink called Holiday Homies. And the backing is Makin' Waves in ...
