Look How They Shine For You

Previously I talked about starting my Jaybird journey with Gazebo.  With that done, I'm on to Night Sky. Like Gazebo, this is much simpler than it looks.  Night Sky uses the Sidekick ruler, which has a bunch of lines all over it as well. But once you understand how it works and use it, it's...

Bird Watching

I've officially started my quilt journey with Jaybird Quilts.  And boy, it looks like I'm gonna journey pretty far. I've mentioned before that I received the Gravity kit at Christmas 2017 (very excited) but, in all honesty, it's a pretty intimidating quilt.  I know a few fabulous quilters who have made Gravity and they all...

The Quilt on the Edge of Forever

Because I'm a nerd, I decided I wanted a Star Trek quilt.   I had seen a quilt on Esty made up of HST (think Postcard from Sweden but with red, blue, gold, and black).  I liked the look of the random placement of the HST but I wanted something more....nerdy.  So I designed this quilt. ...

Don’t Get It Twisted

Protip: When it says read the full pattern before starting, read the full pattern before starting. Twisted Ribbons is a pattern by Katie Rock that was in an issue of Quilty.  It's just flying geese, half square triangles (yay), and rectangle blocks.  I was going to make it scrappy...well, scrappy to the best of my...

Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner

So apparently I'm not a very good blogger...it's been over two months since my last post! Terrible.  My excuse is that I'm working full time now, which you know is a good thing but that means less time for 'important' things like quilting...and blogging. That doesn't mean I haven't done ANY quilting.  Back in April... Continue Reading →

Only 361 days until Christmas!

I hope you had a very merry Christmas and happy holidays!  This year was one of those Christmases where I wasn't really sure what I wanted so my wishlist was very short.  But because my family is awesome, I was happily surprised by a few gifts under the tree especially the fabric kit for Postcards from...

Whatcha doing?

It's been a while...and I haven't really gotten anything done! Shameful I know but it's Christmas time - there's shopping to be done!  Anyway, here's a quick update on some of my ongoing projects: Sugar Plum Table Runner - The final week was published at We All Sew...I've gotten the blocks sewn together but now I...

It’s All Greek To Me

I waste invest plenty of time on Pinterest...who doesn't?  There are just so many things to discover and it's a great place for inspiration.  That's where I stumbled upon the Greek Cross block.  It's quite possibly my new favourite block.  It's sort of like a Churn Dash but...not. I whipped up a quick pattern and... Continue Reading →

and sew, the adventure begins…

Let me take you back to July 2016. That was the month I decided that I was to be a quilter.  Ok, so that decision was easy - after numerous years of watching Momma Bear create beautiful works of art, I thought I would give it a go...I definitely have the best ever mentor/instructor/inspiration right at my fingertips....
