Introducing our new Block of the Month – Tea for Two!

Happy Saturday Everyone! I’m busily filming and quilting for our Sew-A-Long and a new post will be out later today or early tomorrow.  First, however, I wanted to let everyone know about our next Block of the Month which will start on December 1st, 2016. I’m super excited about this one.  It’s using another Pam and Nicky Lintott pattern called Tea for Two and Captivate by Alisse Courter for Camelot Fabrics.  This is a hexi made easy quilt too! Have a look and click here or on any of the photos to learn more or to sign up.  This one is going to be so much fun!

Modified ‘Doe a Deer’

Happy first Sunday of the 2016 NFL Season!  While many of us enjoy watching football with our friends, hubs, etc. sometimes it is nice to retreat to the studio on Sunday for some ‘me’ time.  Today I am working on finishing up my next blog post, but in the meantime here is one I’ve been meaning to share with y’all for some time.

A colleague’s wife commissioned a baby quilt for one of her best friends.  The timing wasn’t great as I was still in the middle of that nasty hail storm remodel and my studio was in complete shambles.  So, naturally I said “Yes of course I’ll make you a quilt.”  (It’s what we all do, right?)

The nursery colors are teal and coral which is a pretty tough combination I discovered, but luckily Woodland Springs by Designs by Dani for Riley Blake came through and worked perfectly.
