Little Farmstead Living from Moda Lissa

I live in Farmers Branch, a small town that
sits immediately north of Dallas, Texas.
I have lived here since I was eight years old. Three of my five kids live here, and all four of my grandkids live here.
My oldest grandson just started Kindergarten at the same elementary school I attended.
Why I mention this, is our family roots run deep and while I live in a suburb of Dallas, Texas surrounded by international business,
bustling highways, I love anything country/farmhouse related.

When I found out Martingale was publishing a book from Julie Thomas, I knew I ...

Winners / Νικητές from Mania for Quilts

On this very post, I had anounced a giveaway. I had not written if it was for one or more persons. But since I had a lot of scraps from previous projects I made for Island Batik Ambassadors Program, I deciced on two winners.

Σε αυτή εδώ την ανάρτηση είχαμε και μια κλήρωση. Δεν είχα διευκρινίσει αν οι τυχεροί θα ήταν ένας ή δύο, αλλά μια και είχα αρκετά κομμάτια, υπολείμματα από προηγούμενα έργα, είπα να βγάλω δυο τυχερούς.

I made the random number generator process and the luvky winners are Spiersusan and Lori Morton. I will contact you ladies ...

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Sometimes you win some, and sometimes you lose some, but during this past year, I (Kara) have actually won some! Usually when I try for raffles and giveaways, my name or number is just not called—not the case this year. 

Barbara Blanton and I with my loot!

Every year at the Academy of Appliqué in Williamsburg, Virginia, two lovely ladies donate a full quilt kit to be raffled off. One year, it was a complete Dear Jane kit, and this year it was Kim McClean's Flower Pots. The kit was full of brightly colored fabrics, and the pattern ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... How About a Tutorial, and a Giveaway Winner? from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Well, another busy month has passed, and not much scrappy sewing has been going on.  The Twelve Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quilt-Along took up most of my time and energy.  For those who are interested, you will find the winner of the giveaway at the end of this post.

BUT - I did make a fun pillow this month using some random yardage from my stash, and I thought it would be a useful tutorial to share with you.


I'm sure that you, like me, have random yards of fabric in your stash - something ...

12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop and Quilt-Along, Day 11! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... a whole lotta stuff!  Do you know that if you add up all the gifts just given on that one day (the 11th), it's 66 gifts?  And all of the gifts for twelve days is 364 - over half of which are birds.  Do you still think they were true loves after all that?  (Enquiring minds want to know!)

I hope you're enjoying all the little "gifts" that have been shared over the past ten days!  And guess what - there's more!  Today we'll ...

Winner: Hallo-Harvest layer cake from Carried Away Quilting


It’s time to announce the winner of the Hallo-Harvest layer cake by Basic Grey for Moda. But first, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for leaving a comment. I enjoyed reading them more than you know. Sometimes in this crazy, stressful, busy world, it’s the kind words of strangers that lift us up. Your enthusiasm for my patterns, thoughtfulness and willingness to share a slice from your own life were day brighteners for me.  You have no idea how badly I wish I could ship a layer cake to everyone ...
