Hazel & Plum Sewing

Hello! Today I'm sharing a little of my pre-market sewing with the new Fig Tree & Company collection Hazel & Plum. I've been sewing samples for Joanna for quite a few years now (the first collection I sewed with for her was Mill House Inn).  So it doesn't quite seem like market time until I do a little Figgy sewing! I was able to finish most of my quilt market sewing with Creekside before Joanna received her fabric, so it worked out really well this time around!

Here are all of the fabrics before I started cutting into many lovely

Quilt Market | Moda Booths

Hello! Today I'm sharing the Moda designer booths! I'm a little bit partial to this group of amazing women...I consider myself blessed to be able to associate with them at market and sometimes at other times of the year as well. I believe I learn something good from every single Moda designer at each market.

First up is the lovely Corey Yoder's booth introducing her lovely collection,

Decorating with Quilts

Hello! Today I'm sharing my thoughts on one of my favorite subjects: decorating with quilts! Along with placing beautiful quilts on our beds, quilts and quilted items can be used in many ways to make our houses our homes.  The very first quilted projects I sewed were home decor items--pillows, wall hangings, and table toppers.

While I do a lot of decorating with quilts in my sewing room today, there were a

Building A Fabric Stash

Hello! Today's topic is one for all quilters, whether seasoned or new: Building a fabric stash. While some projects call for a special order or trip to the store, it's nice to be able to start (and even finish) a quilt with pieces from your stash. Today we'll talk about what types of fabrics are must-haves for your quilting stash.
