Mice!

We have mice again!
But this time they are the good kind. The adorable, whiskery, cute fabric, pincushion-y, kind.


She stands 2 1/2" tall and has a 4" long tail.
What do you think? Could you love this little squeeker??
Patterns are available HERE and HERE.

The 2015 String-Along

String quilting.
It is an obsession around here.
I just can't seem to stop. And really, why would I want to?!


This star block, called Webmaster, measures 22" finished and is the center block in the 2015 String-Along (a free BOM). If you have not gotten your pattern yet, you can do so HERE.

This medallion-style project has 6 rounds and measures in at 84" square. That means you can be done by June and you will have A LOT less fabric in your scrap basket.

I chose a 7 color palette for this project: aqua, orange, raspberry, lime, purple, blue and yellow, plus a black and white polka dot for the background and a black and white text for the narrow borders. And I have to tell you, I have almost no fabrics left in my scrap basket in those colors!

I hope you will stitch along with me, and send me some pictures of what you are doing. I would love to show them off here on the blog!

Polka Dotted Dresdens

I have this wonderful stack of dresdens. Polka dotted dresdens!


They have been sitting around here for almost 2 years.
I am think of putting them on a solid yellow background, but I am not sure.
I am also thinking of something fresh and fun and modern.
Hmmmm....
What would you do with them?

Inspired by...

Anna Maria Horner's Mod Corsage workshop.



Improv piecing, broderie perse applique, free motion quilting, polka dots, Amy Butler and AMH fabrics, plus a few scraps...what's not to love about all of that! Such a fun and creative project. I am already thinking about making another one.
