    Goodness! Doesn’t it just seem like there is always so much beautiful fabric available and we just can’t create quickly enough to use it all? I have been feeling that way lately (maybe that’s why I have suddenly started making small quilts). The new fabric collection, Wonderful Things, designed by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics, […]

    A couple weeks ago I showed you my little Flowering Snowball quilt in progress…I was experimenting with how to make the block without using the usual templates. It worked out, but my blocks were a teeny bit wonky so I had to add sashing to square them up a bit. WELL! This little top is […]

    When I saw the Lagom fabric collection at Spring Quilt Market in May, I instantly loved the minimal prints and colors! Lagom is a Swedish word meaning, “just the right amount”. That pretty much sums up the perfect fabrics! Lagom is the latest collection from the designers at Art Gallery Fabrics…a perfect combination of black […]
