sewing: quilted flag

My sewing has slowed way down this year, I’m not sure why. I guess it’s because my interests cycle through different things. I work on something for a while, then move on to something else that seems more challenging. Then I moved back to the first thing, when enough time has passed that it seemsContinue reading “sewing: quilted flag”

Christmastime Sewing

My wall hanging was begun at the beginning of the Covid time. I ran out of perl cotton. I absolutely could not order any online. So the quilting around the tree edges was completed with 3 different kinds of threads. I guess it marks what year I made this wall hanging with an easy wayContinue reading “Christmastime Sewing”

red, white, and blue lap quilt

I keep gravitating to red, white and blue fabrics. Americana is probably my favorite kind of quilt.

All my prettiest florals, and a fewContinue reading “red, white, and blue lap quilt”

I hand-quilted the layers in a diamond-pattern, as you can see above. My intent was to beContinue reading “baby quilt in forest colors”

a table runner with little birds

I bought the bird fabric with no project in mind–I just thought they were so sweet, and that the right project would eventually come along. The fabric’s name is “All a Twitter” although I don’t remember the manufacturer. The name is such a natural, it was hard to forget. 🙂 Then I was cutting upContinue reading “a table runner with little birds”

sewing with Tilda fabrics

I’ve found my sewing mojo, and have been inspired by new fabric purchases. Tilda’s collection “Bon Voyage,” released earlier this spring, features bunnies. It’s been at least five years since she’s used rabbits in a collection, so of course I had to stock up! I love the bunnies, but was a little less enthused byContinue reading “sewing with Tilda fabrics”
