Sweet Tweets Blocks and a Quilt Top from Needle and Foot

Yesterday I had the pleasure of introducing you to Kim Schaefer in my third Meet the Designer post. I hope you enjoyed getting to know her.  I have been playing with the fabrics in her Sweet Tweets line and have a few things to share with you.

First off, I have been making these cute stuffed blocks. I have shared a couple of photos on Instagram so you probably have seen these in process. I used a simple tutorial provided by Abby Glassenberg at While She Naps.

Cutting the panel into blocks, I used four critters and two black and ...

My daughter just gave me my first and only grand son! And he is the final grand child to this grandmother, so he is a bit special! I am so excited to have him. I won't be seeing him to much as we live to far to see to often, and that breaks my heart, but I will love him anyway all the time! I made...

Christmas Finishes from Needle and Foot

I have two little projects to share with you. These were both gifted at Christmas and I thought I would wait to post until after they had been given to their intended owners. First is a small, fabric book that I made for my soon-to-be-born grand daughter.

I have several of these panels, in two different flavors, that I purchased when a local fabric store was closing out, maybe four or five years ago? I thought it would be good to have them on hand as a fun gift to give. Then somehow I lost track of them or they ...

Stocking the Shop from Needle and Foot

It is all about Christmas prep this week. I feel like an elf in Santa’s workshop except rather than making toys, I have been creating items for my shop. This is the biggest shopping time of the year and I try to take full advantage of it with regard to my Etsy shop.

A friend asked me to make a set of burp cloths to gift to a friend at her work. It gave me a push to add some new baby items to my shop. Sewing with these soft flannels is a blast. Putting on a little music ...

Holiday Scrappy Project from Needle and Foot

Thanksgiving was a wonderful day for our family. I hope it was the same for yours.  There is much to be grateful for, not the least of which is our on-line quilting community.  Now there will be the transition into the Christmas holiday season. I am hoping I can convince Ray to put up our outdoor lights this weekend. I think, of all the holiday decorations, the outdoor lights are my favorite. I like to get them up as early as possible so we can enjoy them for as long as possible.

I have a new toy to share with ...

What do Quilters do when they are not quilting? from The Quilt Journal

So what does a quilter do when she’s not quilting??? Lots of other sewing projects !!! Today I’m linking up with Thank Goodness it’s Finished Friday for my recent finishes. At the beginning of the summer I had an informal “to do” list for things that just needed doing around my home. Well, as we … Continue reading What do Quilters do when they are not quilting?

Wallflower Quilt Pattern from Eva Blake's Makery & Emporium

I think every new quilt pattern is my favorite! New work is always so exciting, although it’s taken me longer to release this pattern than I wanted. This new quilt pattern is perfect for scrappiness and jellyrolls. I am so excited and just could not wait until the top comes back from the quilter to share it! […]

Tiny Baby Projects from Needle and Foot

A few posts back, I mentioned that our family will grow by three great-grandchildren in the first part of 2017? Guess what? One of those babies will be my first grandbaby. Does that make sense?? It sounds weird. Probably because I have been patiently waiting  for this for a long time. No, not really all that patiently. Sometimes Ray has to give me the stink-eye, reminding me to quit asking my kids about grandbabies. Finally, it’s going to happen– yahoo!! I get to be a Grandma, or Grammy. Probably Grammy, I like that better. My oldest and his wife ...

Super Cute Hexagon Halloween Projects from Patchwork Posse

I’m a fan of the hexagon….if you haven’t already figured that out.
I’m not really sure if it’s the shape or the possibilities, or what.

Either sewn by hand or by machine…if it’s the shape of a hexagon, it’s good with me.   What’s kind of fun about it – not only the shape, but the size.  They are all over the place and there isn’t one size that is more right or wrong than the other. Blow it up for a full quilt. You can even stretch them out! Use small ...

Tutorial – French Press Cozy from Needle and Foot

Today I want to share a quick and easy project with you. I have a bit of an obsession with coffee. Currently I have five different methods of coffee brewing in my kitchen. I am always trying out some coffee gadget or method to look for the best cup. I have a Chemex pot, a Keurig, a regular drip coffee maker, a Pour-over, and a French Press. I like all of them and they each have a place in my very deep and sustaining relationship with coffee.

Is there such a thing as too much coffee??

Mini Charm Pack Finish from Needle and Foot

I have a quick finish to share with you today. It also means I can check one thing off of my aforementioned Q4 FAL list! Yahoo for checking things off the list. (I derive great satisfaction from such things.)

I made a zip pouch with a packet of mini charms. These were the Chic Neutral charms by Amy Ellis. I showed a peek at this project in an earlier post. My sister and I have birthdays that are just three days apart. Actually, three years and three days but who’s keeping track? Um, I am, she’s older.
