I finished a new quilt!
Yesterday I needed a quiltmaking day. I needed to turn on some music, sit at my sewing machine, and work on a quilt for a few hours.
Luckily, I had an unfinished quilt on my worktable that I started back in December, and never had time to complete.
I sewed it together using quilt-as-you-go techniques, which, looking back, are not really suited for diamonds.
Trying not to let the corners of my diamonds get sewn in the seams was like trying to hold water in a leaky bucket!
But I still love the quilt and am thinking about making another one.
What do you think? Is my ‘Huddle Quilt’ one that you’d like to have a pattern for? (It would be a regular quilt pattern, not quilt-as-you-go).
Let me know in the comments. ❤️
And now I can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on this week… Does anyone have a Designer Zipper Bag to show me? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
Today’s Friday Spotlight is this custom duffle that is a smaller size bag that works great for kids!
Wow! Can I tell you how amazed (and happy!) I am that so many of you want to sew up this little case for crochet hooks? But really, you can make this fold over case to fit so many different items that I didn't want to limit you.
Introducing the Easy Ruffle Shrug! This pattern belongs to me, I once sold it as a .pdf pattern, but now I'm offering it to my SewCanShe readers as a free download from my Craftsy Shop.
Read on to see my girls' Easter outfits.
You know what that means, there is something new today at This Little Light.
The third Tuesday (like today), is when new journaling pages and other printable are released so members of my sewing support circle can keep on planning, journaling, and more.
I'm so excited to show you the classic quilt blocks that I've been working on for July. As soon as Blend sent me this fabric, I knew that I would make the sailboat quilt block. Isn't it perfect?
In case you are catching this blog series for the first time, we're spending a year making gorgeous quilt blocks using the classic patterns and fresh modern fabrics from Anna Griffin and Blend Fabrics! So far we've made the Dutchman's Puzzle Block, the Churn Dash Block, the Friendship Star, and the Snowball and Nine Patch blocks together!
I have been wanting to sew something like this for so long! I guess I'm just really lucky that you voted for it for our March Un-Tutorials project. I'm not sure where this style of boxy tote came from, but it sure is cute, isn't it?
Finish your Chubby Lunch Tote.
My 7 year old son Connor has been nagging me for ages to sew him something for his bike. His sister's bike came with a little zipper case to carry things in, but alas, his did not. I did not feel particularly inspired by this request for a long time so other things got in the way. Finally I realized that I needed to make his bike bag pretty quick or feelings would be hurt.
It’s always so much fun for me to scroll Instagram and see something you made with one of my patterns.
Today let’s have fun checking out all the Fat Quarter Sized Fold Up Baskets that you have been sewing up!
