Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing the Saturday Seven 252: Lifestyle & Inspiration for Quilters post with lots of quilting, sewing, and lifestyle ideas to get your weekend off to a terrific start. It’s also the first official weekend of fall here in the northern hemisphere. I hope you are able to enjoy today’s post and find some quality time in your sewing room.
Saturday Seven 252: Lifestyle & Inspiration for Quilters
1. Self Care
I loved this article on the Effectiveness of Devotion to a Purpose. And here are some Simple Ideas for When You’re Feeling Overwhelmed. Also, 5 Ways Journaling Can Make You Happier is a short, but helpful article. Finally, here are some good thoughts on Quality vs. Quantity.
I can’t wait to try this Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta–perfect for the first week of fall! I also want to try this Easy Chicken Milanese. And this Takeout Beef Stir Fry looks amazing. I’m in love with the Costco Pumpkin muffins, so I’m hoping these Perfect Pumpkin Muffins might be a good make-at-home treat.
3. Quilt + Sew
If you love antique quilts, these Quilts Dated 1944 promise to inspire. This Bucket Hat tutorial is another fun project for now or for gifting. And finally…Emma precuts have arrived and are in the shop! Pre-orders for precuts will all ship by Monday. And I have extras of all of the precuts as well as Country Home panels available. Find them here! Additionally, I’m getting the Emma Project Packages ready–you can find them for pre-order here.
4. Fat Quarter Shop Spooky Box Reveal

5. Fun for Fall
Here are some Easy Ideas for Halloween Cupcakes–so cute! And for a healthy(ish) option, this DIY Fall Apple Bar is a fun idea. Finally, the Quilting Life Seasons Fall Edition is available in the shop here.
6. Home Decor & Organization + Amazon Find
This list of Habits to Keep You Organized is a good one. And finally, I just got this new kitchen gadget and it’s a game changer! We’ve tried hard and soft-boiled so far, and they are cooked to perfection. I can’t wait to try the poached and make some Eggs Benedict!

Seeing the Hey Pumpkin quilt reminded me I purchased the pattern from you but never got around to making it…just moved over to next year’s list.
And thanks for the link on making a bucket hat .I have some camping and fishing fabrics that will look great.

I look forward to your Saturday Seven every week. I especially enjoyed the articles on Self Care this week. I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately, so the timing was great for me. Also need to get back to my regular journaling habit – it really helps in so many ways. I’m a “lazy” cook/baker, so my go to for pumpkin muffins is simple – one spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin, mix together thoroughly, stir in chopped pecans to taste, top with a streusel topping (with more chopped pecans), bake and enjoy. Well, I’m off to gather my journaling goodies. Thanks for these wonderful Saturday Seven posts.
