My EQ7 Block Challenge Entry & Bonus Sketches

A few months ago, EQ7 announced it had partnered with Moda for a EQ users block challenge.  The challenge:  Design a block using the new “Fresh Cut” fabric line by Basic Grey.   There was no sewing or presentation involved,  nor was there block size limitations, just plain designing in your EQ7.   I am still slowly learning EQ7 but I after reading the challenge I decided it would be a fun way to make a new block and sharpen my {Read More}

WIP Wednesday: Quilt Tops & Funky Log Cabins

I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to look outside and see bright, clear skies.  Today is a beauty, but at only 20 degrees that means my pretty bags and quilt tops need to stay indoors.

Destash, Studio Samples & More!

I finally bit the bullet this weekend and went through my whole fabric stash.  Besides finding a few fabrics I forgot about (doh!)

Keeps me on my toes! I finally finished my last Sugar Block Club 2014 block.  Here are all 12 blocks set out. I will play around with the placement tomorrow.  Until then, can ya’ll {Read More}

Wacky Tools in Your Studio You Can’t Sew Without

  Those baby food sweet potato walls drive me insane…. I love it when bloggers share pictures of their sewing studios.  I am lucky to have an area in the basement (which desperately needs paint) for my work.  And while this picture shows the neat and clean, it’s a sty most of the time! I also love to see what tools everyone uses.  No, I don’t mean what’s new on the market or what’s coming out at next Quilt Market…  I {Read More}
