Baby Morris quilt in the works.

Since I’m usually having to wait to share things in the works, it feels totally indulgent to be able to share some pics of an in-the-works quilt! This is a baby Morris quilt that I’m working on for a friend.

I like a project like this because it’s really just a big game of playing with fabric. And lawn. Geez. So soft. I keep my lawn fabrics in one bin/area, which makes the fabric pull an easy dive into that pile. I’ve got quite the mix of things.

There’s plenty of my new lawns, but also a heavy amount of Jen Kingwell’s lawns. Jen’s were actually a big starting point, because I couldn’t help but buy a bundle of them at a LQS recently. They’re so pretty! (BTW I plan/dream about making a Morris lawn for myself using hers and mine and whatever else…)

The fabric play is endless with a project like this. With each new piece, I get new ideas for color and print pairing. I find it to be super exciting and a massive mental break.

Other fabrics included are some Alexia Abegg, Woodland Clearing by Liesl Gibson and some Aneela Hoey, which is not lawn, but I love the color and print, so it made it in.

Best of 2016 + a giveaway

It’s really crazy that 2016 is almost over. It’s been a good year, and as always, I’m going to put together a little year-end digest to see what has happened. If you’re like me and always thinking ahead, you know that it’s too easy to forget things that have already happened. This is why it can be such a treat to take a look back, and also why it is so important. So do it! You’ll be glad you did.

It’s been a great year, and I am kind of surprised by how much stuff I made. The release of Euclid meant I could sew up all kinds of stuff from clothes to accessories to quilts, and Friedlander and Carkai got sewn into projects new and old throughout the year. I had a great time teaching at several places across the country, but especially during my first overseas teaching trip to Australia.

I’m so grateful for all of your support, and as a thank you I’m happy to give away some of the highlights from this year. Up to grabs, we have – Local 2016, Morris Lawn, Pine, a Friedlander FQ bundle, some Euclid FQs, Hesperides, Crew, Rin and Wildabon.
