Swaddling used to back this simple baby quilt for someone special. Perfect for big stitch hand quilting and LOVE the crinkle! It will get softer and softer with each wash!

Have to figure out how to square this off because it's taking over the design wall!

My sister's African fabric maxi skirt. She did a great job! I tweaked the timeline and scored some scraps!

Baby swaddling as quilt backing. Will wash it in the morning...

Scraps from the Sip and Sew. While the ladies were sewing their skirts, I was hoarding their scraps - lol!  We are scheduling another (Feb 24 - deets to follow) so more scraps for me!

Done! @apieceofcloth thanks for the inspiration and great idea!  Found an old pasta sauce jar to start storing my 1.5" squares in for my next postage stamp quilt.

I've been dreaming about this project for a while and couldn't decide how to execute it. Inset circles, fusibles, hand stitch, machine stitch? So many techniques, so many options! Needle turn applique won out! I'm a bit rusty, but it feels right. Stay tuned...

Saw this fabric a few months ago and had to have it. It's flannel. Everyone said it was ugly, but I love it! Have a few leftover scraps to throw into a quilt.

I've used all of the vintage gingham in my stash. Wasn't pleased with what I found in the stores. Order half yard samples from Connecting Threads' new premium fabric line (the top three). Great hand. It's bias printed, not woven. Look forward to using it!

We are opening a public sewing and quilting studio in Lomita, CA. I am very stressed, obsessed and feel like I've gained 10 pounds! I sew and quilt. I'm a perfectionist - OK!  I want everything to be perfect but I know it's time to "let go!" and "just do it"! We will be a bit disorganized, a bit sloppy, and sporadic - but dammit! we are open for business! Deets will be posted on the website and Facebook so (put me out of my misery) and wish me luck!

Spent all day Saturday at the new studio working on samples. Those leggings - yes! Super cute, super easy and very chic! It's all in the fit and selecting the right fabric. More to come...
