I have become friends with so many people of different shapes and sizes and I am shocked at the negative self talk that I hear. It truly has no bearing whatsoever on outward appearance, and everything to do with inner self worth. I decided several years ago with the help of my sexy husband to stop negative self talk, to love my body and all of the marvelous stuff it can do! Regardless of size, my body gives me the opportunity every day to run with my kids, eat tasty yum yums, help the ill, comfort those who need help, and sew my heart out. Why would I ever want to hate this gift? I am grateful for my body and grateful for how awesome it looks in homemade clothes that I can tailor to me!
Thank you for @patternsforpirates and @madeformermaids for making such beautiful patterns in enough shapes and sizes to cover everyone!
Thank you to @riflepaperco for making amazing fabric designs and thank you @cottonandsteel for producing it on such perfect rayon challis!
Did I mention how much I am OBSESSED with @riflepaperco's WONDERLAND fabrics for @cottonandsteel? I finished my quilt top for @the_scrappy_stitcher's upcoming pattern #maryjanequilt . Pattern releases on the 24th! It's a great one. 😊

I took this floral ( one of my all time favs..) and made a #sidewalkchalkquilt inspired by it!! Its colors are so warm and sparkly!! This will be the binding and I'm imagining a white flannel on the back?? Maybe?? What would you put on the back?? #fabricbubb#ilovesolids#menageriefabric#konasolids
Need a shot of this in better light. I turned this #buffalocheckquilt by @emptybobbin into a weighted blanket for my toddler when she transitioned to her big girl bed. Backed with a light blue fleece and no batting, each square is filled with poly pellets. She calls it her “bead blanket.” .
Fabric is @riflepaperco #menageriefabric with Kona natural. #quiltersofinstagram
Today kicks off the loooong #sewalong for the #farmerswife1920 quilt hosted by @gnomeangel
Here is my block 1! I have chosen to machine sew my blocks. You can English paper piece, foundation piece, or whatever other way might work for you!
I am using a combo of @cottonandsteel @riflepaperco #menageriefabric a tiny bit of #amalfifabric some C+S basics, and some art gallery florals.
If you are participating make sure you have read the blog post thoroughly on how to submit your blocks for consideration in the prize pool!
On a whim, I bought a charm pack of #riflepaperco#menageriefabric last week and immediately paired it with some linen squares to make these #hst blocks.
I'm trimming in the kitchen (because the counter is a better height than my cutting table). Not sure how I'll stitch these up yet, but it's making me happy today!
