Happenings
It's been quiet here on the blog and sewing front but anything but in life! February saw a job change and a 300 mile move. We're officially North Carolina residents and loving it! We're settling into a routine and I'm working on finding more time to sew. I ...

January Bee Blocks & Pillows
Recently Lindsey from Happier Than A Bird Quilts joined our Do Good Stitches circle! For January she chose an antique tile block in white, cream and pinks. Both my blocks used the same fabrics but the placement is a bit different so they aren't identical. I...

Small December Projects
In December I did manage to squeeze a little time at the sewing machine in the midst of a crazy retail season.  A pillow has been on my list for quite some time & that Honeycomb pillow still isn't done...I found a simple pattern for envelope back pillows an...

Updates, Goals & a Finish
Warning, this will be a long post as I'm WAY overdue for one! We have some updates, a finish and some 2014 goals to cover! The 30's reproduction quilt has been finished ( like since April ), it's probably been quilted since July or August just waiting to be...

Wonky Stars
I got married two weeks ago and missed the deadline for my October bee blocks but put them in the mail this week! They were wonky stars and I really enjoyed the variety of looks this block gives, I'll definitely make more! We didn't have any specific instru...

ALYOF- Sugar Block Goal
I have managed to complete by January goal! I finally have 6 blocks from the 2013 Sugar Block Club BOM done. I love them because they've forced me outside of my comfort zone a bit. I can definitely see that I'll make a quilt based off the Greek Cross style ...

Red & Aqua Quilt and Purl Soho
In December we went to a wedding for a dear friend of my husband's, it was wonderful and we have a fabulous time! The happy couple are both active duty in the US Navy and I felt they needed a quilt (duh). I wanted a gender neutral and fun color scheme but r...

January Goals, ALYOF
I was pretty bad about goal making & keeping in 2013, but it's a new year! I didn't even finish my Sugar Block Club BOM and would love to finish that this spring. I've gotten two blocks made so far (and one of those just happened the other day, eeek!). For ...

Jumble Blocks
For November we were instructed to make the Jumble block by Andy from A Bright Corner  in some girly pinks and greens. I ended up making two of the same rather than two different sets of fabrics. I think this'll be a great quilt and can't wait to see it all...

September Blocks
Sewing has definitely taken a back seat to the final stages of wedding planning (we're officially two weeks out!) so I don't have much to share. In September I conquered my paper piecing fear for my Cheer blocks! It took most of the day but I was able to fo...
