Recycled Block: Trick-or-treat Tote Bag Tutorial from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Blog-photos_01 IMG_9014-Modified copy
Hi, Makers! 

Spooky season is here! One of my favorite holidays is Halloween because we get to do so many fun projects here at the studio. This time around the marketing team and I were thinking about all the projects we can create this season so we started looking for inspiration at things we’ve done in the past! 

That’s when we came across a super sweet quilt block I sewed for Instagram! Where I pieced some strips of Halloween-inspired colors from our Pure Solids range, applied Decostitch Elements in “Stellar” on top, and reverse appliqued to reveal the ...

Autumn About Town Sew Along Purse from From My Carolina Home

We need a sew along for Autumn Jubilee, and this year I was inspired by a sew day with friends. We were chatting about things to sew that everyone can use, so while they were here, I got out my graph paper and a pencil. I drew a quick sketch with dimensions, then an idea happened as it often does for something new and different. This handbag will have versatility, be unique in your choices of fabrics from your stash, and useful. Today we’ll get started, and then finish in two weeks.

For our excursions about town in the ...

A Feel-Good Fabric Collection: Onward + Upward by Jessica Swift from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Onward_board_banner copy

Hello, fabric lovers! 

I would like to start the day with one of my favorite sayings, “It doesn’t matter how many times you fall, what matters is how many times you get up!” We are all humans, going through this roller coaster we call life, and our goal is to try to make the most out of it. Today celebrates exactly that with Jessica Swift’s latest collection, Onward + Upward! One of my favorite things about Jessica as a designer is that her collections are so personal, relatable, and enlightening. 

Onward + Upward embraces the powerful experience of self-discovery and ...

The art of gift giving. from QUilting By-You

I suppose it’s is starting to be on our minds more these days. The holidays are rapidly approaching and we are starting to gear up for holiday shopping. Some of us may be thinking about it a little earlier this year as shipping and finding items in stock has been an issue these days. Well okay, I am…or at least I’m trying to get everything organized.

However, there are quite a few of us who do homemade gifts. Afghans, quilts, scarves, or whatever our minds can conceive. Some take a lot of care and research favorite colors ...

It’s October 2 from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

 This morning we received the most welcome rain in a while. I think it’s been at least two or three weeks since we’ve had a drop of rain.

So this morning while sitting on the porch having my coffee we were able to enjoy the rain. 

I’ve been able to keep up my morning routine during my cancer journey, which is to get my planner/journal and write about anything that crosses my mind in it and then also plan what I hope to get done today. I also have a daily reading that I will do ...

Happy October Everyone from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

 This is my favorite time of year and month.

This is Lover boy

I've been needing to write and give an update on myself and what's been going on.

Life is good right now. I had my 6 month scan after chemo and it was cancer free. It was stressful time not knowing what the scan would show and this will not be the last scan. I feel like I should maybe find someone I can talk to on how to be able to deal with this. It's my new normal and there has to be a ...

Quilting Apps. from QUilting By-You

Sometimes when I am overthinking things, the world just seems strange. Who would have envisioned that we would be wandering around with miniature computers that make phone calls and are small enough to fit in our pockets? Who can now envision their life without one? They certainly do make things easier or at least a little more instant.

I will confess that I do not know much about quilting apps. In fact, there is only one that I have sporadically used and that is QuiltingCalc. However, since phones also have calculators I found that I wasn’t really using it ...
