Summer Makes: Totem quilt.

This is also something that I’ve gotten into this summer–another Totem (one of my new patterns this past spring). The fabrics that I am using are a soft and happy mixture of things–some architextures, botanics, gingham, dear stella, blueberry park, lotta, essex…and whatever else I have on hand.

I started this while I was up in Vermont earlier this summer and have a few more blocks to complete before I add the borders, which I haven’t decided on yet, but I might be leaning towards some Essex…

I’m absolutely thrilled to be helping kick off a new series on slow sewing over at Sew Mama Sew. You can find the post here. I really enjoyed sharing my thoughts on why I slow sew, and it was super fun putting together a tutorial for these fun, big-stitch coasters.
