Liberty prints with Robert Kaufman chambray.

Summer quilt projects, update.

I’m busy working on new quilt tops to quilt when the weather gets a smidge cooler. It’s part of my sew for the holidays strategy to build inventory now rather than have a crisis later. My friend Aidan brought back a little bundle of Liberty patchwork pieces from a trip to London (you can order yardage from […] Read more…

Cute prints with a city vibe (birds!) - Velocity from P&B

On the cutting table: Dreamin’ Vintage

  These sweet fabrics by Jeni Baker for Art Gallery Fabrics are almost too pretty to cut which is why I searched for a design that would show them off as much as possible. I settled on the Cheerio quilt in this month’s (issue 8) Love Quilting magazine which I just downloaded on my iPad. […] Read more…
