Better late than never, right!? Here’s my November block for the Quilter’s Planner BOM sew along! Since it’s the final month and a few of us are a few blocks behind, @gogokim @kidgiddy @thefitquilter and I are challenging ourselves to finish a block per week so that we are caught up by the end of the year. Want to join!? Jump in!! Hey Kim, Kerry, and Anne, how are your blocks for this week!? 😬😘💕💪
I made my block using @alisonglass fabrics from her #agdivingboard and #agsunprint fabrics for @andoverfabrics and it will fit nicely into my alternate layout plan. 😍🌈
Hey there #quilty peeps. Tomorrow is my 22nd wedding anniversary and in celebration of and thanksgiving for that blessing in my life, I offer a #giveaway 😍!!! Last year at the Houston quilt show I HAD to have an #agdivingboard bundle which I've used just a bit; the remainder is up for grabs. So that's a really fun thing! This will be a three part giveaway headed to 3 different people... Second is a gallon ziplock bag I will stuff full of my treasured scraps, which accumulate entirely too quickly for me to use. Lastly, (and this is the most fun I think 😀) I'll put together a bundle of goodies from my stash catered to your individual wishes...just tell me your likes/interests and I'll go from there. To be eligible (US only this time😌) leave a comment and tag a quilty friend if you would like. I'll choose three random recipients by the end of the day tomorrow (October 25) and notify winners/mail packages out before Halloween. This is not sponsored by or affiliated with anyone other than myself and my desire to #payitforward .
One of the best things about a sampler quilt is the ability to make it your own. The block patterns are clearly written, suggested layouts are provided, but so are tools with which you can explore endless possibilities! Check out this alternate layout for the 2018 Quilter's Planner Sampler Quilt by Kitty @nightquilter... sketched out in detail in the Projects Section of her planner, and being stitched into life each month. 😍 Swipe to see the full plan!🌈Have you posted your September sampler block yet? 😘
I had a precious hour at my sewing machine this morning, and finished my September block for @thequiltersplanner #qp2018sewalong 😍✨ This block is the red-orange block, drippy as ever, made in @alisonglass Fabrics—#sunprint2018 and #agdivingboard 🧡❤️ I’m a few months behind, but am determined to catch up. Swipe to see my full plan, with an alternate layout reminiscent of paint drips down a quilty canvas. 🌼 Excited to cross this off my list and work sewing machine time back into my days (somehow!) 😂😘💕Happy Friday, friends! ✨
Today I'm excited to share that my pattern for the Pollen Pillow, a taste of the full EPP #PollinateQuilt , will be included in the 2019 Quilter's Planner companion magazine! This post is a perfect melding of so many things near and dear to me: the Quilter's Planner, hand stitching in the form of my first designed EPP pattern #pollinatequilt and its companion the #pollenpillowepp , photography, and the endless beauty of nature. Throw in the fact that I made the pillow using primarily Kraken in Urchin from @alisonglass #agdivingboard fabric line for @andoverfabrics, and stitched and quilted it using coordinating @aurifilthread, and my quilty life is pretty much covered. Swipe to see a closer look. I used #meticulouscutting to highlight different sections of the same fabric to create a unique but cohesive (and vibrantly gorgeous, if I do say so myself😂) pillow! Plus, as an added bonus, you'll get a Pollen Pillow Shape Set that includes all the papers needed to piece the Pollen Pillow with your Quilter's Planner when you preorder from quiltersplanner.com, care of @karenthediyaddict and @thequiltersplanner. So awesome! 🙌
Many of you know about my involvement with the #quiltersplanner , but I'll share a bit more for those who are newly following. My dear friend Stephanie @latenightquilter created the Quilter's Planner back in 2015 to try to help busy makers & mamas organize their lives and creativity so that more time could be spent making and spending time with those we love. It has changed my life, my productivity, and my peace of mind in amazing ways. I don't know how I survived without it. I'm honored to be a part of the Quilter's Planner team. Over the past couple of years I've been working with Stephanie, running @thequiltersplanner IG feed, and as photographer. I photographed all projects included in the 2019 Quilter's Planner, to help pair some of nature's inspiration with quilty beauty. This time of year is fun for me, since I finally get to reveal all of the hard work I put in during the early summer months. Be sure to follow @thequiltersplanner to see my photos of all of the patterns included in 2019. There's eye candy galore😍
A little bit of slow stitching on a long-in-progress quilt that’s finally almost done. So excited to show you all the final quilt soon! Don’t forget to enter the #TTLG1k giveaway before the 6th for your chance to win 15 amazing vintage Tula fat quarters!
Shy Kitty and I are just in love with the #tulaminiswap package that @sewfreshfabricsniagara made! So many lovely fabrics in this fun pillow! The extras are perfect! I live the adorable pouch (that #agdivingboard print😍, and swipe to see Lindsay's crisp, perfect top stitching 🤯), the rainbow #aginsignia pincushion 🌈, the gorgeous @wonderfilspecialtythread (can't wait to use that yummy variegated one 🍑🍒) and the OOP squirrels are just the icing on the cake! (Weirdest emoji combo yet: 🐿️🎂) Thank you so much🤗
@robynlhop mark me delightedly received 😘
Quadrant 1 finished and I’m liking where it’s heading . Very different style for me😉, with a whole 2 days left of the weekend. So many other things I should of been doing this week 😱 but I have enjoyed my quiet time alone in My Space & think it has helped me get through to the end of the working week. Not so happy in my job at the moment, it is so important to get pleasure out of the time between coming home and going back in the morning 😍#auroraquiltsewalong with @tiedwitharibbon #alisonglassdivingboard#agdivingboard#auroraquilt#aurifilthread#bernina770qe#berninaaustralia

Sometimes your quilt top is so big you have to use the driveway to make sure your backing is large enough. And even though I bought some wide backing fabric, it's still too short! Is there a 12-step group for consistently having backings that are too short? #ilikewidebacksandicannotlie
I love this #byannieclamup bag that @lelliebunny made me. It has magical powers ✨✨✨. I seem to lose lip balms faster than I can buy them. This bag is currently holding all my lip balms. I started with 4 at the beginning of last week and I still have 4 . See? Magical ✨✨✨...
Happy to get to design the first anniversary box for @thefinchbox and that it includes a pretty Mariner Cloth project. You can still sign up and get one! I hear today is the last day though so jump over now to get this special June box. @thefinchbox @finchknittingsewingstudio #thefinchbox#alisonglass#agdivingboard#agmarinercloth#andoverfabrics
Hey, guess what! @finchknittingsewingstudio let me design their one year anniversary edition of Finch Box! @thefinchbox It printed up so nicely - this is for sure a collector’s item - mermaid print from Diving Board. Mariner Cloth project is inside with some other things and I am thrilled. Follow the link in profile over at @finchknittingsewingstudio to get one for yourself. I’ll post another not so move-y pic soon, but how cute is Nicole? #alisonglass#finchbox#agdivingboard#andoverfabrics#finchsewingstudio
Can we just take a moment and give a round of applause to @chuckstar158 for this beauty? I mean, really. It’s gorgeous! She used a mix of #essexlinen from @robertkaufman, and #agsunprints + #agdivingboard from @alisonglass and @andoverfabrics for the top! We have kits available in the shop if you’d like to make one of your own!
