Popping in today to show you some detail on how to use your Classic Curves Ruler to cut and sew full circle blocks. Many of you have enjoyed the YouTube video on Color Girl YouTube where my friend Cassandra shares her expertise on this (sometimes tricky!) technique. Some have had questions about adding the tape on the ruler to mark the cutting lines. Here's a bit of explanation and close up pic to help you understand.
As you know, the Classic Curves Ruler gives you such accurate and easy cutting of curved shapes because of the concave/convex lines. These lines...
So, I write this post feeling a bit sheepish.
I had such a good intentions of finishing up my black and white quilt to submit to Curated Quilts for their black and white challenge and hopefully to be featured in their black and white issue. Well, a few things converged to thwart my success. I LOVE that some of you did it, though! More on that later.
Time constraints aside, I was well on my way to finishing my quilt when I hit a speed bump in the creative process. When I had all the blocks sewn up and I laid...

An all-star is the athlete who has it all and looks great doing it....and I am thinking that this newest quilt fits that description. When you take fabulous fabric (prints, colors, the whole package) and mix it with an interesting design that's also super fun to sew, THAT is an all-star quilt!
Today is my turn on the tour of projects to show off the new Everlasting fabric collection by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabric. Sharon was inspired by the idea of marriage, of "everlasting" love. That romance is reflected in the fabric, and the whole collection is gorgeous.
Two color quilts (specifically black and white) are better than I expected! I thought it was going to be more challenging for me to avoid using ANY color but black and white in a WHOLE quilt. I suppose that my love of pattern and the amazing variety of super cool B & W fabrics made up for the lack of color.
I've seen a few projects come up for the Color Girl Challenge 2019 (#colorgirlchallenge2019 if you're on Instagram or FB). What do you think? could you make a quilt with only two colors?
Sadly, I had planned on having my...

I FINALLY finished my little pink and white Super Simple Sampler quilt! I'm excited to share this quilt and all the YouTube videos that go with it. These little sampler blocks are free to sew, with instructions right here on the website.
Last fall when I started this quilt, I made video tutorials featuring basic skills for piecing the blocks. These are a great resource especially for new quilters and those wanting to learn and add to their piecing skills toolkit. <<find links to all the videos here>>
This Super Simple Sampler is all pink and white for a special friend....
