The Houses on the Hill

Wednesday, October 14, 2020

Back in April, a customer messaged me through my Etsy shop to commission a quilt. Due to a series of unexpected events (all related to the pandemic), the quilt took WAY longer than anticipated! But I am thrilled to be able to show you the finished quilt now!

Pumpkin Spice Season

Monday, October 12, 2020

The leaves are beginning to change color here in Missouri, and that makes me want to sew autumn things! Do you remember this quilt? When the fabric designer, Nancy Archer, mailed me fabric for that quilt, she also sent a half-yard bundle of her Pumpkin Spice collection too!

Paper Chain Family - FREE Quilt Block

Tuesday, October 6, 2020

This month's Quilt Block Mania theme is Family! Dozens of pattern designers have come together to share FREE quilt blocks with you every month! Carolina from AlwaysExpectMoore is spearheading the project, and it is so fun to see what everyone comes up with each month!

Paper Chain Family quilt block

Last year, when I made this quilt, I also made a cute "paper" chain made from fabric. The people are holding hands, and it creates hearts in-between them.

I really love the paper chain, and it sits on a shelf in my sewing studio. When this month's prompt was "family," I knew the paper chain people needed to be featured again!
