Winner!

Catching up after a weekend up in Portland at Quilt Market. It’s always so much fun to see all of my sewing friends in person!

Oh hey! That's my block design in the Art Gallery booth! #quiltmarket

And how great see one of my Modern BOMs being used in a quilt the Art Gallery booth!

I’m finally finding time to announce the winner of Hand Quilted with Love. Exactly 100 of you commented and the random number generator gave me number 4. The winner is Kat! Congrats and keep an eye out for an email from me.

A long weekend and some sewing is on the horizon. Hope you all squeeze in some sewing time too!

Hand Quilted With Love blog tour

Today is my stop on the blog tour for Sarah Fielke‘s latest book, Hand Quilted with Love!

Before I get to the content, let me first mention that the book is a beautiful heavy hard cover. You know how a hard cover will just sit solidly open? Such things are important in a sewing book! There is really such a nice feel to the book itself.

And the quilts! Sarah’s lovely vivid style is all over the book in the 16 quilts included. So many great ones!

I was instantly drawn to her Bangles pattern.

You know that I’m all about the solids so of course they are what I turned to.

With templates and Y seams, this pattern isn’t in my wheelhouse but I so enjoyed working on it! It’s really fun to occasionally work on something that’s very different from my usual piecing.
