QAL By the Sea - Block 2

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

The QAL by the Sea is off to a great start! Block 1 was released last week, and there's still plenty of time to join the fun!

Block 2 is an amazing sea turtle by The Inquiring Quilter! The pattern and tutorial are on her blog HERE.

I absolutely LOVE this block and was so excited to make it in my monochromatic aqua palette!

A Glowing Finish - 1,050 Days in the Making

Thursday, August 6, 2020

Last weekend, I got to spend three days at the Sew Cozy Quilt Lodge in Wakefield, Kansas. It's a wonderful quilt retreat built and owned by a quilter. I've been to the retreat several times before (read about two of my previous visits here and here), and I was excited to go back!

When making a list of what I wanted to work on while there, I decided it was time to finish a quilt I started a few years ago but never finished. (I know I'm not the only one with projects like that!)

A Split Arrows Baby Quilt

Thursday, July 30, 2020

A few months ago, I connected with Nancy Archer on Instagram. She designs beautiful fabrics for QT Fabrics, and she asked me to make a quilt with her newest Garden Journal collection! After receiving the fabrics, I knew my Split Arrows pattern would be perfect for showing off the bright colors and designs!
