Scrappy Potholders

I had so much fun making this scrappy lap quilt, I decided it was about time to start sorting through all the leftover fabric scraps accumulated over the years from a gazillion different quilting projects.

Quite a while time ago I was gifted several patterns that I never sewed, thinking I never have enough time for my own designs, much less for someone else’s. Boy, was I wrong.

Time for beads and buttons

July turned out to be an exceptionally busy month. Lots and lots of work. And because we were left without power for a whole week, which involved juggling my whole schedule around, I ended up having to work long hours the last couple of weeks.

When life gives you scraps…

Whenever I see someone post a tip on “how to use your fabric scraps” I go running to see. Invariably I’m wrong. You see, it seems my concept of what scraps are is different from others’. Scraps for me are what other quilters –no matter how frugal– throw away.

Using a serger for quilting

I bought a serger at the same time I purchased my latest sewing machine. I’ve used it off and on, mainly to make pencil cases and a couple of bags. I’ve loved using it for these few items, but –admittedly– it’s been underused. So this week I decided to really delve into all its possibilities.

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
