Patchwork Heart

I also made the cutest little patchwork heart for a quilt for a friend (someone else designed this little pattern for a group of us to use). It's the perfect little block for scraps, and you can make

it any size! This block finishes at 6" square with all of the squares and

Happy Friday! First of all...I wanted to let you all know that I'm starting a newsletter. This has been on my to do list for quite some time. I won't be writing so often that you'll want to unsubscribe either...I promise. I will post once or twice a month and will be highlighting blog posts, links I find helpful, and new patterns and fabrics.

The newsletter will give some subscriber-only benefits like  sales codes for my Etsy shop and free PDF patterns.

To sign up, scroll down and find the "Subscribe to our Mailing List" box on the right hand side of the sidebar.

What I'm Working On...

Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well! It's "spring break" here which for me means that I get to focus on sewing and don't have any college classes to teach or have any papers to grade. So I've really been enjoying the extra time! I even finished two market quilts and was able to drop them off to be quilted yesterday!

 I do have some sewing I can share, though! This weekend we had a visit from

Hello! Happy's a good day to sew since it is our national sewing day!
