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.
Hey friends! I’m excited to be joining in today with Lori Holt and the Fat Quarter Shop’s Spelling Bee Sew Along. Every Saturday since October, the Fat Quarter Shop blog has been featuring different blocks from Lori Holt’s adorable quilt pattern book, Spelling Bee.
I’m so excited to share one of the new products I’ve been working with behind the scenes – the new Cricut Maker digital cutting machine.* This product was given to me to review by the folks at Cricut. I’ve test driven and played with die cut tools in the past, but this was my first experience with an electric cutting machine.
Today I have a quick new quilt tutorial that is really fast and beginner-friendly. It also uses some great strip-piecing shortcuts to help you put a finished quilt together really quickly. I was able to piece this 40″ x 40″ baby quilt together in an afternoon!
There is a lot of mess sewing going on behind the scenes around here! I thought I’d give you a sneak peek of some of the projects that will be coming up in the next month – including my next fabric collection! Lori Holt has done it again.
I’m excited to introduce a new sponsor here, Stash Fabrics. It’s a gorgeous online fabric store with some a beautiful selection of popular modern fabric collections as well as a great selection of curated fat quarter bundles. And they have an amazing giveaway.
Hi friends! It was so heartwarming to see the response to the introduction of my the Sew Goodness challenge in January! If you missed that post, you can read more about the Sew Goodness monthly charity sewing prompts here.
