I am loving my new machine. Thank you all, who commented and wished me fun on my new machine – sorry I have not had a chance to reply. I have a good reason though…I have been sewing most nights…
Over the weekend, I finished all my blocks for Carolyn Friedlander’s Mini Aerial quilt. I used various prints of Lotta Jansdotter’s lines (echo, bella, glimma, mormor and sylvia). I plan to finish the top for Friday.read more
It's time to make blocks!
Hopefully you have bought the pattern (HERE)
and have picked, repicked, mulled over... made a fabric selection.
Remember I challenged you to FINALLY use that fabric you've been saving?
The good stuff? Yes? Are you finally going to use it?
The first version I'm making is with my new fabric line that I am showing to stores in May so they can order (CLICK HERE for the sneak peek)
I'm making the block with MORE parts first
That way they are done.. the second block goes faster!
Here they are in ...
Work-in-Progress - Where am I, Where am I going
Several goals have been reached in the last two months. Yippee!

- Table runner is pieced & quilted. One side of the binding is attached.
- Radiance Star wall hanging is pieced, quilted and one side of the binding is done.
- Sample baby quilting is pieced & quilted. One side of ...
Did you notice the Australian wildflowers table cloth in last night’s post? On a lovely heavy cotton/linen blend, with colours so rich and pretty? I found it at the oppie recently. Now, truth be told, if you’d dressed your table in this cloth back in the 80s or 90s, I’d have given a little eye roll and thought “ew”. Wasn’t I horrible! No appreciation for Australian wildflowers in any way, shape or form back then. I’d have thought it the height of dagginess. Throughout the 00s – I left plenty such cloths behind in the ...read more
A stack of pretty ric rac spools caught my eye in the shop and I decided to use them in a springtime update on this tea towel tutorial! Whip up a set of these pretty tea towels as a hostess gift or to brighten up your own kitchen. In Easter egg-inspired pastels, sweet ric rac trim adds nostalgic charm to the timeless beauty of natural linen.
As always, the easiest tutorials come from me so read on for a quick but absolutely lovely project! This tutorial is light on photos because the last, similar tutorial is heavy on them so ...read more

My friend Emily over Sew ET has opened a fabric shop, Don’t Drool on the Fabric. How fun is that!? To celebrate her new venture, we decided to put together a fat quarter bundle for a giveaway. Actually, Emily is so sweet, she has decided to giveaway 2 FQ bundles. Nice, right?
Two random winners will receive a fat quarter bundle of the 6 pictured fabrics above:
- Moda Happy Halloween Stars
- Moda California Girl Seaglass by Fig Tree & Co
- Moda Serenade by Kate Spain
- Moda Marmalade by Bonnie & Camille
- Robert Kaufman Metro Living
- Free Spirit Habitat by Jay McCarroll ...
Saving time is what this is all about. Having one place to go to for all the good stuff. There are a few basics that come in handy when shopping for fabric– like what the pre-cut bundles are made of, how many inches is an 1/8 cut? What is a fat quarters dimensions….things like that.
I am always on pause mode when someone mentions one of these type of subjects. I don’t know!
Well, really I do. But for the life of me I can’t remember.
That is where the printable share cards come in handy ...read more
