Cabin Fever

Friday, November 16, 2018

We've had several flurries and snow days already this year, and that just makes me want to curl up by the fire in a log cabin in the woods in front of the tv with a log cabin quilt. (Let's be honest: a log cabin in the woods would have mice and spiders and terrible internet service.)

This month's Island Batik ambassador challenge was to create a quilt using the traditional log cabin block, but like usual, I wanted to challenge myself to make it a bit more modern.

Little Man Quilt

Sunday, November 11, 2018

A few weeks ago, a soon-to-be first-time grandma asked if I could make a quilt for her grandson. After a few messages back and forth to iron out the details I got started on a quilt for her new little man!

Glowing Lone Star Quilt

Monday, November 5, 2018

It's time to reveal another secret sewing quilt from earlier this year!

The Glowing Lone Star quilt is a pattern and kit available on Craftsy! I enjoyed writing the pattern and making the quilt top, but I REALLY loved adding the quilting!

Vintage Sheets Quilt in Quilty Magazine

I vividly remember the sheets on my bed when I was growing up. They were soft, but had a sort of crispness to them and were cool to the touch when I laid my head on my pillow. One set had small light pink flowers with light green leaves. Another set had dainty yellow and peach flowers. Today, they are called "vintage," and I now know that crispness came from the cotton/polyester blend they were made from.

When I learned of people making quilts from vintage sheets, I knew I *HAD* to make my own!

Rainbow Hexies

Wednesday, October 31, 2018

This month's Island Batik ambassador challenge was paper piecing. When trying to decide what to make scouring Pinterest for ideas, I remembered I had already made a small stash of hexies earlier this year from the Petting Zoo collection! It was their time!
