I couldn't resist choosing stars as our first week of inspiration for September Sewing. I've never met a quilter who didn't like stars and I've never met a star quilt I didn't like! For this week's giveaway prize, you have a chance to win all the starry inspiration with the Curated Quilts issue that's all about STARS (-:
To enter to win, it's easy, tell me if you've made a star quilt and something about it or if you have a favorite star pattern. Extra entry: head over to this...
It's my favorite time of year!
Why? Because as much as I love summer, autumn is so refreshing. Just-right temperatures and changing fall colors just give you a positive charge. Also: vacation season may be over, but it kind of feels good to be HOME, send the kids to school, and have a bit of free time to refresh. If you're like me, that means the excitement of new sewing projects, maybe planting some fall flowers (or bulbs for next year!). It's that in-between time after summer busy-ness but before holiday busy-ness(-:
So, for those of us feeling a renewed sense...

Have you ever made a quilt with only two colors? I have always enjoyed the old traditional quilts in cheddar and green, blue and white, red and green, and more. For a Colorful Quilter, though, it's tough to limit yourself to just two colors for a WHOLE QUILT! Think you can do it?
Last week I told you about a new-to-me quilting magazine, Curated Quilts.* I love the current issue on curved piecing (of course!), and I saw that they are having a challenge for quilters to appear in the January 2020 issue. Here's the challenge: make a quilt in...
All this week I've been hustling to add fabrics to the shop and expand your options to get exactly the ones you want, as much as you want! This feels like a big step for my little shop and I couldn't be more appreciative of all of you who've given me a chance to send you something pretty. I also couldn't be happier to offer fabrics that are hard to find anywhere else: Tilda Fabrics, Sweet Bee Fabrics, and of course the Classic Curves Ruler, patterns, pattern kits and curated bundles that are one of a kind Color Girl.
