More bags

Just out of the dryer. New quilts make me happy…. and here’re some tester bags, made with Quilter’s Linen scraps (from the chopsticks quilt) and some Stitch scraps (left over from when I slipcovered these chairs at Market)… this one above is the Keyka Lou grocery bag, with handles in the wrong places, ¬†and below […]


Here’s the quilt for our baby boy, as designed by me and the Bean. C bought me an early birthday present, a walking foot, so this was my first time using it. LOVE. here’s the back, pieced with scraps. here’s the oops on the back. just so I don’t get a swelled head. here’s the […]


Posing with D in front of the fox fabric from A Walk In The Woods, at Sew Modern. Knit up in a rush, because this boy loves his stuffed animals. Clothes to come soon.

Quilters Linen Chopsticks quilt

I finished this one late at night, so only have midnight pics. The purple and tan quilters linen from last week got turned into this quilt. Chopsticks by Jaybird Quilts. I

Laminated shopping bags

These are from the grocery bag pattern by Keyka Lou, made for Robert Kaufman. I love that multicolored raindrop flower print. And the numbers are cool too.

Luckiest girl in the world.

I opened my door this morning to find THIS on my front porch: 3 Kona roll-ups, dark, classic, and bright… and these GORGEOUS colors of Quilter’s Linen (which might be my most favorite fabric basic EVER) I have plans for the roll-ups, and am awaiting instructions for the QL. It’s gonna be a good day.

Baby boy quilt-in-progress, take 2

First, she sorted… (Well, first I sewed, THEN she sorted) Then we played. This one is much smaller, probably 45×55, so it’ll actually be for the baby. But it’s the same fabric line as D’s quilt, so they’ll coordinate. Cause clearly my house is all about coordination (not!) C just ordered me an early birthday […]
