Where I Sew

Kathy from Pink Chalk was nice enough to feature my sewing space as part of her “Where I Sew” series.

I’ve loved following along along and getting a glimpse into everyone’s workspace! You can add a photo of your own space here!

Market Whirlwind

Wow. For a couple of years now I’ve seen the blog posts about other people going to Quilt Market and it always looked like so much fun. I wasn’t wrong. It’s an amazing time! It flies by and it’s tiring and your feet hurt at the end of every day but it sure is a hell of a lot of fun! It is almost surreal (but oh so wonderful!) to suddenly have everyone you know online all in one place together!

I’m going to blog about a couple of events that happened soon, but meanwhile, my three favorite things that I saw at Market (aside from people or things I was involved in):

The Michael Miller inspiration wall.

This booth!

And Yoshiko Jinzenji’s amazingly beautiful fabric:

Back soon with more!

Are you going to Spring Market?

I’m headed there on Wednesday and I hope to see you there!

Modern Log Cabin Quilting Blog Tour & Book Giveaway

When Susan Beal asked me to be a part of the blog tour for her new book, Modern Log Cabin Quilting I jumped at the chance.

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you’re certain to know that I have had quite the love affair with the log cabin block.

Flora & Fauna QuiltRed & Aqua Quilt - Detail2Solid Squares

There was a time when I would sew pretty much nothing but!  There’s so much room for creativity with them and as a beginning quilter I was comfortable there.  I loved that I had so much room to explore design while also using just this one simple construction method.  Modern Log Cabin Quilting shows just how much this is the case. Check out these two amazing and completely different quilts, both with log cabin blocks.

Pretty great, right?  The book is filled with ten wonderful quilt patterns and loads of cute home dec.projects…

…and bags too!

The beautiful photography really shows off the fun and fresh atmosphere of all of the projects.

The generous people at Potter Craft have been kind enough to offer up a copy of the book for you! Just leave a comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win. (US residents only please.)  Good luck!

I’ll leave the giveaway open through the weekend and announce a winner on Monday!

So busy!

So awhile back I promised myself that I wouldn’t blog about not blogging and here I am breaking that promise.  Being freelance with my work, my quilting free time ebbs and flows.  After a very long time just quilting a ton (mostly stuff I can’t post here!), on Monday I started back up on a job.  So I’m in an ebb and I will be for about three months.  I’ll miss my sewing machine but the paychecks will ease the pain.

Meanwhile, the fabrics for the next quilt have been pulled!

Baby Quilt Fabric

Oh gray – why can’t I quit you?!?

Can’t wait to get cutting and sewing this weekend!

Apartment Therapy

Hey all! I’m super excited that the lovely Bethany from Apartment Therapy came and shot my sewing space recently.

Japan

We are all so terribly sad about what’s happened in Japan… Did you all see that Jacquie is giving a quilt away if you donate to the Red Cross? So generous of her!

Check out her post here
and please give what you can!

It’s a quilter’s miracle!

I seem to have actually managed to train the cats to stay off of the quilts while I’m working on them!

Frank

Those of you with cats understand what a feat this is.

It’s a whole different story with these two…but they are allowed on this one!

M&O
