A personal blog about quilting, sewing and life as a mother. Lots of free tutorials including beginning quilting tutorials, binding tutorials, and other sewing projects like bags, quilt blocks and nursing covers.
Today Amy Chappell of Ameroonie Designs is here to share a sweet hand-stitched Christmas Ornament Tutorial. She’s got a free pattern for you, but the fun part is that she has multiple additional designs to choose from in her shop that fit this size ornament/hoop. And here she’ll walk you through all of the steps of assembling and finishing the decorative hoop.
I mentioned a few posts ago about our visit to the east coast of the United States, including a stop in the Portsmouth, New Hampshire area where my husband’s family lives. I love to visit local shops while I’m traveling whenever I can. I visited Pintuck and Purl a couple of years ago, but they have since moved to a new location in North Hampton, New Hampshire.
Another fun tutorial today that’s perfect for a quick summer-sewing finish. This guest post is by Stephanie from Swoodson Says where she shares so many creative ideas for a variety of fun sewing projects! This quilt block coaster would make a fun mug rug gift for a friend.
I’ve got a new variation on a favorite baby quilt tutorial to share with all of you. I’m still a big fan of traditional star quilt blocks, and as you know, I love blowing them up to make a pretty (and fast!) baby quilt.
I’m always excited for guest posts from the talented Sedef Imer. Check out this adorable leaf coaster tutorial – perfect for gifts or summer entertaining! This tutorial features Sedef’s beautiful new collection, Rhapsody coming out in June from Riley Blake Designs.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you know by now that I am a big fan of online fabric shop, Pink Castle Fabrics. I just love their style and selection. In addition to the online shop, they also have a brick and mortar Pink Castle Fabrics shop in Ann Arbor if you are in the area and want to check it out!
