Needles & Thread

Check out Fat Quarterly's Issue #8!   As part of a designer's challenge, I was invited to create my own modern interpretation of the Spool Block.

Needles & Thread, shown above; was designed to not only feature a spool of thread, but it's partner in crime- needles!

Get the tutorial at the Fat Quarterly!

And notice my use of the uber-wonderful fabric, A Stitch in Color!  To celebrate, we are offering 5% off A Stitch in Color, this week only!  Use promotion code STITCH!

Promotion code valid on A Stitch in Color only.  Cannot be combined with an additional promotion code, not valid on previous purchases.  Sale ends Friday, midnight CST.  Once the sale price is used, the new price will appear in the cart AS THE NEW PRICE, NOT AS A DISCOUNT.  See below to outline where to place promotion code when checking out...

Color me Happy!

My absolute most FAVORITIST fabric ever in the history of the world.  Times Ten.  Times Infinity.  Times infinity squared!

Simple, graphic patterns and bold colors define this collection.  These fabrics were inspired by the hand dyed and patterned batiks that Malka Dubrawsky had been been making for years. They’re fun and functional for a bevy of sewing projects, perfect for piecing into quilts or crafting garments.

Used sparingly, they can infuse a bit of color among neutrals or if used throughout a project allow you to stitch away in luminous, artisan-crafted color.

Get A Stitch In Color now at the always low Burgundy Buttons price!

My Second Bee

I am loving my first quilting bee "sew" much that I joined another.  And Christine over at Quilt Monster in my Closet even let me make the button!

What do you think?--------->

This blog will obviously focus on wonky blocks which is right my love alley!  Wait till she sees the blocks inspired by my favorite Block Party Book that I gave as inspiration for my Sew...Bee...Create buddies this month!

She's gonna be jealous!
Ever since my first bee buddy Melissa let me design the button for Sew...Bee...Create.....And then BeeJeebers...  I have been obsessed with making blog buttons!

It might be more fun than the actual Quilting Bee to me!

I really want to join a Mosiac Bee, but can't seem to find one open.  Let me know if you see one!  Until then...Quilt, Quilt for now! (QQFN- who say's we can't make our own text lingo?)

Sew...Bee...Create January Block

Inspired by the Block Party book, but I didn't follow the pattern. 

Packets to my Bee Buddies go out in the mail tomorrow. 

Each has color coordinated fabric, but different cuts and sizes so that it will be unlikely they can all create the same blocks.

I can't WAIT to see what everyone comes up with!
