WIP Wednesday – The Little Engine That Could…

So I’m still running with my theory of several small projects going on at the same time is a good idea. And it is (at least for me). I am caught up on my Field Study Tote Sew-Along with Betz White. We are up to the handles which is Day 4, today on her blog.  These handles are easy to sew on and unique. I used a recycled heavy cotton webbing I got from a belt on discount at TJMaxx. {Read More}

WIP Wednesday – Sew-Along Edition

My WIP’s this week are fun ones with no looming due dates.  I am finding (once again) that I am more productive when I have 2 or 3 projects going on in my studio at once.  I’ll tackle one in the morning after the boys are off to school, then by noontime I’ll switch to another.   Afternoons can be busy with activities so I’ll grab something more portable to do while they are snacking and doing homework.

WIP Wednesday ~ The 1718 Coverlet QAL ~ February Blocks

I am a huge antique-er (is that a word?).  I have many old pieces of furniture, art, and assorted goodies in my home with stories to tell.  So when I first heard Susan Briscoe released a book called The 1718 Coverlet I knew I had to look it up.  This book shares the history of a 69 block beauty, which is said to be the the oldest dated British patchwork coverlet. After I purchased the book I read it. And re-read it.  This coverlet {Read More}

WIP Wed: Block 19 & 20 of The 163 Japanese Patchwork Book

Early last year I started making blocks from a wonderful Japanese Book titled (roughly):   163 favorite Pattern of Patchwork .  ISBN 9784391140.  It caught my eye because I have a serious love for Japanese sewing and quilting books, but mainly because each block was deconstructed for you so you could see how to best assemble them.  By December 2014, I completed 18  8″ blocks. Not too bad! I plan on continuing this project in 2015, so today I got my book out once {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. So instead of nice outdoor shots today, I brought some current WIP and a few finished ones upstairs this morning and took over my family room. Last week’s WIP was of this quilt. The Sugar Block Club 2014 quilt.  I finally found {Read More}
