Little Ruby Sew Along with Fat Quarter Shop

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day!  I'm ever so grateful and can't really put into words my appreciation for those who have given their lives in defending our nation's freedoms.

Today I'm participating in the Fat Quarter Shop Little Ruby Quilt Along. This quilt along is for a quilt designed by Camille Roskelley. I'm really looking forward to this one because of the design, and I love quilt along projects that are divided into manageable segments.  We will be posting every two weeks about this quilt along, giving you plenty of time to manage each step!

Part one is basically gathering supplies and doing the cutting.  Kimberly has a

Happy Friday! Today is favorites day...yay!  I have several things to share today with the first one being a little mini quilt I made for the Moda Schoolhouse. Each designer was given a block pattern and asked to make it for market. We were able to do whatever we wanted as far as prints...and we were even able to finish as desired.

I had so much fun with mine...I really did have every color and type of fabric I

Quilt Market Spring 2016

Good morning and happy Monday! We arrived home late last night from the Spring 2016 International Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, Utah. International Quilt Market is a trade show not open to the general public which is held twice yearly. Professionals from every area of the industry come to purchase and to scope out the latest and greatest trends, fabrics, and notions.  I'm still a little tired from all of the work and excitement, but I've unpacked and am ready to get things organized here at home. I've taken a lot of photos to share with you this week...hope you enjoy them!

The theme for Moda this year was "Camp Moda." Our area was decorated with

Curved Piecing and a Free Quilt Pattern

Happy Saturday! Whew...the week has certainly flown by! I'm still sewing and preparing for International Quilt Market next week...my list is getting shorter, though!

Early this year I pieced a fun quilt, Daybreak, using traditional Drunkard's Path blocks and our  Valley fabric. But there was a ruler I was able to use that make this quilt incredibly easy to cut out.

I ended up going to spend some time at The Fat Quarter Shop in early March
