NEW Shell Rummel fabric and quilt kit! This one’s GORGEOUS … from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

It’s no secret that I love everything Shell Rummel creates.

We have collaborated many times and I’ve made a quilt out of every one of her collections except one that came out early in the pandemic when I trying to figure out how to homeschool a kindergartener, care for a newborn and run a business.

My life hasn’t slowed down yet, but that collection is waiting for me when it does.

Shell’s latest line with FreeSpirit Natural Affinity is absolutely gorgeous, filled with beautiful serene scenes from the seashore. The colors are calming and an absolute ...

This fabric collection is a must have! My favorite colors + gold metallic accents .. from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

This week’s new arrivals are amazing! I cannot get over the rich beauty of Luminosity by Deborah Edwards for Northcott Fabrics.

The teals, dark blues and greens combined with gold metallic accents make it my favorite color palette of all time. Plus the butterfly and peacock feather images, with a beautiful panel are just gorgeous.

You absolutely will love the two prints where the design runs from one selvedge edge to the other. Both are just begging to be used in a special way, like borders or quilt backing.

And for something completely different we have Tutu Much Attitude ...

Loopy Meander & Daisy Free Motion Quilting Combo – Quilting Blooming Star from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

I’m going to be totally honest, this isn’t my favorite quilting ever. But I think it’s important to show you when my sewing projects don’t go as planned so you know you’re not alone when it happens to you too.

I wanted to do a swirl design in each and every diamond to help echo the design in the quilting. I’ve used similar approaches in other diamond quilts and the results are always stunning.

But my entire family has COVID, and I had one day when we cleared out Quilt Addicts Anonymous so I ...

Straight line quilting on the longarm + Why I HATE channel locks! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Today I’m showing you how I used straight line quilting on the longarm to quilt Subway our latest Stashin’ with Stephanie quilt design.

I also tell you why I will use a ruler 100% of the time over channel locks in order to get perfectly spaced straight lines when quilting on my longarm.
