Hello! It’s been too long since my last post so I wanted to share what i’ve been up to.
I’ve been working on this new quilt that will be featured on Moda Bakeshop. The (free!) tutorial will be coming your way any day now. I will be sure to do a post about it here and on Facebook when it’s up. It’s a fast and easy quilt with a quick cutting technique, previewed below.
It’s a great quilt pattern for a beginner or if you want a quick and fun project.
The collection I used is Somerset by Fig Tree and Co. for Moda. It’s made up of Layer Cakes (pre-cut 10″ squares). I also used a jelly roll (pre-cut 2.5″ strips); however, you can cut your own strips from yardage to save some money as I only needed 15 strips.
Check this out…look who decided to make an appearance on my quilt! My sweet little Bodie. He’s terrified of my sewing machine and usually wants nothing to do with my quilts. Even here he looks unsure of himself.. 😉 xoxo
What else have I been up to….
Oh yes, I’ve been baking lots of pies. It started when this guy picked a bucket full of blueberries. I didn’t know what to do with all of them and didn’t want the berries to go bad so I did what any logical person would do and made a pie, obviously.
Then I made a sugar plum pie. In the last 2 weeks I’ve made 3 pies. And yes these pies are fat free! I keep telling myself that (as I eat my daily pie slice). At least there’s fruit…which have antioxidants! I’m so healthy! 😐
The shop owner, Shay, is so sweet AND she makes the sweetest bundles.
She has a lot of this vintage-floral look that I’m crazy about right
now. I think my next quilt will use these fabrics.
Had to do matching coasters of course.
And then there’s this Quilt-as-you-Go pillow (and quilt behind it) – I got the pillow back from my publisher. This one will be in my upcoming book! 🙂
