Hello, and happy Saturday! Today I’m sharing the Saturday Seven 200 Lifestyle & Inspiration for Quilters post. Today’s post is filled with links to good articles, recipes, sewing and quilting inspiration, and home and lifestyle ideas and tips. I hope you’ll find some good ideas for beginning your weekend and for the week ahead. Enjoy!
Saturday Seven 200
I loved this article on “How to Feel Spaciousness Rather Than Time Scarcity” in our days. I also loved this article on “Choosing Rest.” Here are some great ideas for when things get a little (or a lot) stressful. And this article has some great ideas for making simple changes in one’s life. Also…this “You’re Never Too Old” post was so much fun to read (I decided that I’m NOT too old…).
I’m making these Orange Cranberry Muffins this weekend. And these Crispy Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps are also on my list now. There are two recipes I want to try on this post…the Slow Cooker Pot Roast and the Brie Pasta. If you have a sweet tooth…these cookies look amazing. Finally, here are some terrific Baking Tips from Martha Stewart.
3. Quilt + Sew
First…I absolutely love this Jelly Roll Heart Quilt that my friend Lissa just shared. And here are some terrific reader tips for making the most of your sewing time. Melissa Cory just shared this fun free quilt pattern with curved piecing. And because I love hexagon quilts…this article by Barbara Brackman is so informative. Finally, here is the American Quilter’s SAL Block 16 (lots of tiny hst’s)!
I’m super excited for this book journal by the Modern Mrs. Darcy to arrive next week. I can’t wait to have a place to manage my reading lists and notes. And this is what I’m starting this weekend: Slow: Simple Living for a Frantic World. I’ll keep you posted on both of them. (I feel like I might need to do a year-end book list/review).
5. Home for Fall…Décor + More
First, here are some fun ideas for adding fall décor to your kitchen. And this post shares ideas for how to decorate your outside spaces for fall. I loved this simple list of fall activities. Just for fun--here are some fall-themed movies to watch now. Finally…I love home tours for getting décor inspiration. This one is one I loved recently.
6. This & That
I always need readers whether I’m reading, browsing, or sewing. I’ve recently purchased my first pair from here and love them! I’ll definitely be ordering more. And there are still a few more days left in the month to take advantage of my WildGrain bread box special. Go here or use the code AQUILTINGLIFE to get $10 off your first box and free Brioche Rolls for life. Oh…and I will have the next edition of the Quilting Life Quarterly ready for you next week…just in time for the fourth quarter. Finally, did you know that there are just 98 days left in 2021?! I couldn’t believe it when I read that the other day. (And that means we are down to 92 days before Christmas).
7. On the Blog Last Week
I shared some fun projects here on the blog last week. Here are links to the posts in case you missed them:

Can’t we see the Folktale fabric quilt that is under the pumpkin quilt? I used that fabric for my second quilt and even modified a pattern. i was so proud of myself. Now I’m hooked! Thanks for your informative site!

Yes, it’s one of the quilts in my Home & Hearth quilt book. You can see a full photo of it here:
That was supposed to say “can” not “can’t.” I did not want to sound rude.

I do like to read all your suggestions but I really don’t know how you have time to find all of them. I am trying to simplify our lives a little and also helping our daughters out too. One really needs to declutter but has trouble letting go of may items in her life. Thanks for sharing your Saturday suggestions with us!
