Quilting Life 2018 BOM

Happy Friday! Today is the first post in my 2018 Mystery Block of the Month series.  The series will run very similar to last year's.  I'll post a block each month around the 20th.  There will be twelve blocks this year; however, this year's block will just be presented in one size.  Blocks will finish at 12 1/2"--just a little bit bigger than last year's blocks.

Valentines Pillow Tutorial

Hello and happy Thursday! Last year I made a super cute Valentine's pillow and wanted to make a companion pillow for it; however, things got really busy right before the holiday, and the left-over fabrics were put away in a bin.



Thankfully I was able to find my left over fabrics with all of the organizing and

Quilt Works in Progress

Hello and happy Wednesday friends!  I finished up going through my works in progress, listing them, and doing some thinking about my first quarter goals for 2018. It feels so good to have done this, and most importantly to have written it down!  I feel ready to start making some progress!

Organizing the Sewing Room

Hello and happy Thursday! As I mentioned the other day, I've been spending a lot of time in my sewing room this week; however, not very much of it has been spent sewing!  I normally clean and organize in-between Christmas and New Years, but this year we had a family wedding to attend out of town during that time, so the cleaning got pushed back!


Anyway, even though I'm not quite finished, I thought you might want to see a
