I’m not sure what to call this quilt… it’s a variation of the classic hourglass design, but I’m pretty sure the block looked like candy corn to me so that’s why I decided to stitch it up, lol!
It has been an emotional week for me. On Wednesday I shared a difficult topic with you that had been on my mind for a long time, and then I seriously spent all day Thursday reading your kind messages of support - thank you! I don’t know if I’ll be able to respond to every blog comment (just know I read every one and loved them), but I do plan to answer your emails as soon as I can. ❤️
After spending nearly all day Thursday checking my phone or computer, I seriously needed a break from the internet.
I found a strip quilt design that I worked on months ago but never had time to finish, so I decided that Friday would be a good day to hide in my studio and piece a quilt.
It was a lovely day… and I finished!
What do you think?
I plan to share the tutorial for this quilt with you as soon as I can baste, quilt and bind it and then write it up!
But should I call it - an hourglass quilt or a candy corn quilt??? Or maybe a therapy quilt? #tootrue

Let's face it, sometimes moms forget to accessorize. Well, this infinity scarf made with just a yard of soft cotton voile is an easy accessory that you can wear anywhere. And it has fine french seams and a neat 1/4'' hem. Lovely!
