London Calling quilt….

Robert Kaufman is making some AMAZINGLY soft fabric, (lawn) with BEAUTIFUL floral prints (London Calling). When I felt it pre-spring-market, I asked if I could design a quilt with it, because it’s SO soft and nice… I finally got the chance, and even got to hand quilt it. I’ve NEVER felt such a cuddly quilt […]

using up scraps/experimenting

So, as mentioned before, I have a million scraps leftover from market… so I’ve been playing… A long long time ago, I pinned a gorgeous quilt on pintrest, but the poster didn’t know the name of her pattern, it was a family heirloom… I finally tracked down the name, maybe (Missouri Starflower, maybe?) but still […]

Magical Rainbows quilt (finished!)

Another WIP crossed off my list! After I made the Kona banner for the We Love Color market booth, I had a yummy stack of all the new Kona colors, so I quickly cut them up and whipped this out. It’s a mildly wonky log cabin, measuring in at 57×74″, so it’s awesome for the […]

Dr. Seuss Sweet Pea Sleep Pod

Moses basket made for the RK market booth, pattern called the Sweet Pea Sleep Pod… probably the most involved thing I’ve ever made, but LOOK how cool! It came out pretty perfectly, considering I made it (hurriedly) in a day and a night… the insides were all cotton prints, and the outside was SLICKER (RK […]

With a Twist.

The pattern is called With a Twist… can’t remember the name of the fabrics, but they were all batiks, in a roll-up. I used the scraps to make this dress for the Bean. she loves it because it has pockets, (obvi), but also because the batik is a GREAT weight for summer dresses. what is […]

KMQ playtime

Here’s a really cute teddy bear made with the KMQ (pacific) fabrics…. he’s a simplicity pattern (without vest, hat, etc) He was a total hit with my kiddos for the 2 hours we had him (finished) he got dressed as a cowboy, and covered with coordinating blankets (/mug rugs) here’s the blanket/mugrug: I was just […]

Kona cotton solids banner

Aaaaand, we’re done time to take a break… The Bean wants more summer clothes (as does D, but he’s not as excited about it as the Bean). This banner took very little sewing (but lots of ironing), and I am inordinately proud of it. All the new Kona colors are prairie pointed around it, and […]

A day in the life of a sample seamstress…

I was looking through my phone this morning, and realized I have a bunch of pics of market stuff that I can’t share yet, but I also have a bunch of random stuff that I *can* share…. so here’s a random collection of photos from 1 day last week: my cutting table, 2 days after […]

Little Killa quilt

This was one of the last minute quilts made for the RK booth… I got the fabric the week of market, so I had to design, piece, quilt and bind in a single day. This adorable fabric is called Little Kukla (which autocorrects to Killa on an iphone, hence the title of this post). I […]

Scrap/vintage sewing

I made this sunsuit from one of those vintage patterns I bought last month… it’s a size 1, and I mostly wanted to see the construction and assembly… I think it came out cute enough that I’ll draft a larger version for the Bean later this summer… I used leftover Essex Linen in awesome Hot […]
