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!
Update: The free Candy Corn Quilt Pattern is ready.
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
And now it’s time for you to show off! What have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see. Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
My U-Pick Sewing Project is a triumph!
Sew up some pretty kitchen towels that won’t slip off the bar! They have a pretty tie that holds them on, plus a cute ruffle on one end.
These DIY embellished towels were sewn from inexpensive bar towels, plus 1/4 yard of fabric each.
This year my daughter asked me to make her a Cinderella Costume for Halloween. I must admit that it made me think of this funny sewing meme I saw in my Instagram feed...
I’ve been working on another fun Christmas project and it’s making me so happy.
It’s a quilted Christmas Tree wall hanging!
These tote bags are so much fun to make... I just can't stop. They are the perfect way to bust through your scrap collection. My kids have claimed the smallest one for taking snacks to school, crayons and paper to church, etc. I already gave the largest one away to a friend. And I am keeping the medium sized one for myself. Those are almost the last of my Cotton + Steel XOXO scraps and I am excited to show them off.
Every quilt you make needs a label.
Years down the road who will remember who made that quilt? Who did they make it for? And when? You might not even remember.
Plus if you decide to show a quilt, it will definitely need a label to ensure you get it back. Quilt labels are easy to make and there are lots of different ways. It's basically a piece of fabric with information on it that is attached to the back of the quilt, usually in a bottom corner.
You can use these small clear bags to organize sewing supplies, keep your makeup, or carry small bottles through the airport.
They are so fast and easy to sew, you won’t be able to stop!
Three little elves have lost their mittens and can't go out and play! Okay, I have four little elves running around here and I am being forced to think beyond Christmas a little bit here because we'll be taking a road trip to the north so my children can see snow for the first time. The poor things have no idea what they are asking for.
Voting for our October U-Pick project ended yesterday. Do you want to see which project won?
