How To Make A Frame With Mitered Corners from Nikki, In Stitches

It took me awhile to perfect my technique for making a frame with mitered corners.

It wasn’t the frame itself that I struggled with, but really what was the best way to attach it to my sign.

I like painting signs like these on 1/4″ plywood. The thicker stuff is heavier, and I don’t like the weight it gives my finished pieces (plus it’s not usually as smooth of a surface to paint on!)…but you can’t really nail a frame to 1/4″ ply.

I came up with the following system, and I love ...

Lunar Calendar for 2021! from Selvage Blog

 I just bought a copy of this awesome lunar calendar. And not just because my dear sweet niece made it and started selling them this morning on Etsy. Visit here: Amelia Sherman Designs. Please "like" it. It's exciting to watch the numbers climb!

This calendar is a nice combination of art and science, and a useful decoration.

Choose one of these red wagon quilt patterns or make them both! Bring back childhood memories of riding fun, and make one for each child!

This is Quilt 1 which I created for the My Red Wagon collection by Debbie Busby for Henry Glass. I am smitten by the textures and colors of these fabrics and so happy I was able to work with them! The prints spell ‘cozy’ with plaids and paisleys and are versatile as well because they include whimsical motifs for the entire year. Debbie was inspired!

Debbie worked with a primitive palette, imbuing each fabric with ...

This is a post about color matching and how Sherwin-Williams (I am not an affiliate, just forever grateful) literally saved my sanity.

Video: 5 Ways to Remove Leftover Wax from Candle Jars from Craftcore

This video is part 2 in my series on reusing candle wax. Previously I made a video on how to reuse candle wax by melting the wax in jars on the stove, then transferring all the hot wax to a new jar with a fresh wick.

I got a lot of great feedback via comments on my YouTube channel from viewers on more ways to remove wax from jars. I’m currently stuck in the house due to the COVID-19 outbreak, so it’s the perfect time to try out your suggestions! If you have a tried and true method ...

Bedroom Renovation – Anthropologie style from Nikki, In Stitches

My bedroom renovation has taken much longer than expected, but to be honest it doesn’t bother me. (Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for my husband.)

Some people can style a room in just a few days, start to finish, but it’s not that easy for me.

I like to live in the space and slowly hunt down exactly what I’m looking for, or find a way to make it myself.

And this is the truth…it’s not just an excuse for why I still don’t have anything on the walls.

I did the ...

Brighten your Home – Easy Quilting Decor Projects from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Admit it, there comes a time in every quilter’s journey where they have to step back and realize they have too many quilts. Fortunately for the quilting community as a whole, quilters are incredibly generous people who give with love and share their talents with friends and family, wrapping them in the warmth of their craft. Sometimes though it’s nice to make something for yourself, stitch in a little of your own creativity and create something that is positively and uniquely you.

Quilting doesn’t have to be limited to just quilts. There is a world of options ...

Celebrating the New Year in style with a bow tie table runner from Quilt Social

Time to celebrate! Well, almost. In yesterday’s post, I pieced the bow tie blocks and put together the table runner. The PFAFF quilt expression 720 will be doing all the work again today! Today I’ll quilt and bind the table runner.


Quilted bow tie block table runner



PFAFF quilt expression 720


To prepare the table runner for quilting, layer the top with batting. For the runner I fused batting to the top and then layered them on top of the backing, right side down. This let me avoid having pins to move as I quilted.

The first thing ...
