Hello, friends! Yes, it’s February 8th and I am just getting around to posting my A Quilting Life Favorites January 2024. It was a pretty busy end of January for me. I taught classes a few hours north of where I live and also gave a trunk show and lecture an hour south–all within a couple of days. I’m in full February mode now, but here are my favorites from January!

I’ve sewn so. many. things. in January! But I can’t share anything other than this one project until next month. I pieced the lovely Log Cabin block using Strawberry Lemonade fabrics in January and got it finished into a pillow the other day. You can find a free pattern for the 18″ Log Cabin block on my site–just click on the button below to find it. I am just about finished with my “secret sewing” and will be working on some works in progress very soon.
5 Favorites from January 2024
Below are some of my absolute favorites this month:
- First, we’ve had some beautiful weather including a lot of much-needed moisture. I try to walk 3-5 days a week and loved being able to walk with cloudy skies and a bit of moisture in the air.
- Next, Strawberry Lemonade fabrics shipped. It’s been a real treat to hear how much all of you love it now that you are seeing it in person. Thank you for all of the kind comments and emails on this collection.
- My Heart of the Home quilt returned home, and I received my copy of the American Patchwork & Quilting magazine with my quilt on the cover.
- I’ve wanted to purchase these shelf organizers for a long time and finally got a couple of sets in January. They are wonderful for organizing clothes closet shelves–and sewing room closet shelves!
- Finally, From Strength to Strength was definitely my favorite non-fiction book read in January. It was motivating and gave me lots of food for thought as well as constructive ideas I can use now. (I didn’t get any fiction read last month but plan to start a new novel soon).
Heart of the Home Quilt Video
We just filmed a video with all of the details for my Heart of the Home quilt project in the April 2024 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. Watch the video above or watch on our YouTube channel here. You’ll find all of the quilt details including details for the sew along that will begin with this quilt at the end of the month.
Thanks so much for stopping by for my Quilting Life Favorites January 2024. I’m spending a lot of February getting everything ready to share some gorgeous fabrics and quilts with you in early March!
