2018 Events Announcement (and there’s more to come!)

If you haven’t noticed by now I’m quite partial to a sew-along. I love them for a number of reasons but the two biggest are simple: 1. They hold me accountable which means I finish things and B. I get to make the things I want with a whole bunch of rad people on the internet. 2017 has been a bumper year of sew-alongs and…

Flying Geese #2 for Tula Pink Butterfly Quilt Sew-along

It’s time to do the second set of flying geese as part of the Tula Pink Butterfly Quilt Sew-along. I used the Bloc-Loc Flying Geese ruler for these and it saved me so much heartache.

Link Love: The Walking Dead

Seriously one of the most frustrating weeks on record. My websites and email have been impacted by the move from one host to another and it wasn’t until Sunday that we finally got stability back across the board. I cannot thank the team at Lyrical Host enough for all their time, effort and hand holding through this process. Multiple emails on a daily basis back…

I love how the different shapes pop out depending on the fabric placement. I’m announcing our first winner today and I’m really excited about it – I love giving…

Old Maid Puzzle for Jen Kingwell’s Gypsy Wife

Old Maid Puzzle are the blocks of choice for this week in the Jen Kingwell’s Gypsy Wife Quilt Sew-along. I really had fun fussy cutting for these blocks and cutting into some of my all time favourite Heather Ross prints (combined with a little Lizzy House for good measure). I used the free foundation paper pieced templates provided (with approval from Jen Kingwell) by Kristy…
