But first: the details.
Each month, one of us will assemble a Puzzle Mystery Quilt...
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.
This week is my turn on the blog tour to showcase the new collection, Windsor Garden, by Kelly Parker Smith for Sweet Bee Fabric Company. It's always fun to discover (or be introduced to) new-to-me fabric designers and companies. Sweet Bee is a new face in the quilting fabric crowd, and they are already producing some really beautiful collections! Kelly invited me to sew something to show off her first fabric collection called Windsor Garden.
You can purchase Sweet Bee fabrics and get the look you see in this quilt. Click Here to shop.
As soon as I saw the prints,...
June is here! We are all having a very creative year, right? As we approach the half-way point of the year, we are going to do something special this month: challenge ourselves to finish as many works-in-progress as possible.
That's right: make a clean slate, tidy up the studio (and the mind!). Have you ever noticed that it's hard to feel creative when life and/or your space is cluttered?
Don't worry, we are going to make it fun with some prizes!
Starting a new quilt or other creative project is always so much fun and puts a lot of excitement in our...
