Sharing some #secretsewing from yesterday. You may recall my sewhomie, @amanda_807 was chosen as the @henryglassco July  #desiretoinspire challenger 😊🀩 .  She's been busy, and I have not πŸ˜†. I am enjoying watching her create with the beautiful #holidaywishesfabric , offering advice as she requests it, and getting more and more excited for when we can share her creations!  But for now, this sneak peak will have to do πŸ˜‰

Joining @myteaandbrie for the #saturdaynightcraftalong .  Chillaxing on the back porch, working on my #epp flowers for the #kingfisherstitchalong and watching reruns of #midsummermurders .  #lifeisgood !  #livinglargeonthebackporch
#stitchandsnip were up late last night. First block done on the #patterntest for #themaryquilt .  I have not used #flannelfabric for a #quiltop before. I feel as if I need to stop and #spraystarch all the pieces. Anyone else do that with #flannel ?  This adorable #junglefabric is #safarishuffle by @blankquiltingcorp .  Pattern is by the brilliantly talented @kitchentablequilting .  And now to the #ironingboard .  #butfirstcoffee β˜•

This is how we do "random" 🀣. For those of us who just LOVE order, random hurts but @amanda_807 is working on her @henryglassco #desiretoinspirechallenge and she wanted to step out of her comfort zone. Brave, no? Me? Im sitting on my bum scrolling IG and offering random #wordsofencouragement like, "yep!", "looking good", and, "your dad needs to dress up as Santa!".

Up for grabs. This says "one inch" hexi but it is NOT!  Come on @fiskarsamericas get with the program. And Missouri Star would take it back but it would cost me as much to ship it back as it cost me in the first place πŸ™„. See second pic for measurement.  Reply "taken" and DM me mailing info.

You may or may not know that I name all of my sewing machines.  My main squeeze is Tessa. My sister @nancc1400 named her machine Nell (think Dudley Doright...she was purchased from Canada). My sister accidentally took one of my presser feet home. Thankfully, Nell decided to come clean and Tessa is once again in posession of all of her faculties 🀣

So you all know that I am, um, how shall we say... #colorchallenged , right?  Well I need help, please, deciding first:  if these #batik fabrics will work for the #floatingtrianglessewalong hosted by @naomialicec using the book Simply Modern Patchwork Quilts by @janetpatch , and second:  if so, which blue (swipe to see the two choices). Of course, if the answer to the first question is, "Sweet mother of Betsy Ross what are you thinking Barbara!?" then there's no need to answer the second πŸ™ˆ.

Next up #onmycuttingtable #safarishuffle #flannelfabric by @blankquiltingcorp .  #stitchandsnip are particularly fond of this line πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Š. I'm using this #flannel fabric to #patterntest #themaryquilt for @kitchentablequilting .  This flannel is so so soft (Snip loves it, that silly little monkey!) I'll get down to #rotarycutting if I can wrestle the fabric away from them πŸ™„

*TaDah* The finished #cattitude #improvquilt designed and sewn by the amazing @amanda_807. She used #cattitudefabric by @studio_e_fabrics .  Amanda, I like your #cattitude

So @midwesternbite invited me to join in the "which one quilt would you take if you had to evacuate your house in an emergency" game.  Well I'm  counting these (two) as one because they are fraternal twins. That counts as one, right?  I designed and sewed these for @modabakeshop (that sounds so hoity-toity, no?πŸ™ˆ) and they are #thelongandtheshortofitquilt .  They are dear to me because I LOVE the fabrics ( @meandmysisterdesigns #Confettifabric and @amrosenthal #mamascottagefabric ) and because it was the first time I was able to experience the #threadmagic of @mollylovelythreads .  Yep...they'd both come with me.  Now Molly, @naomialicec , @herding_cats_quilting , @triciarayburn and anyone else who fancies, join in. Don't forget the #justonequilt .  Ready? Go!

Yabbadabbadooooo! Look what arrived today! Its the book for the #floatingtrianglessewalong with @naomialicec and I'm so stoked to get going on this!  When @sharongoforth posted her book today I was like all sad 😒. "wow. Why did she get hers before me?? Does Amazon like her better? Did she have an "in" with them? Did she actually pay for shipping?  Will mine ever arrive??" But it's here!! πŸ’ƒ

Fear not!  I have not abandoned the #kingfisherstitchalong 😁. Here is my #slowbutsteadyprogress !  22 done, 38 to go.  Yes...38...remember @theskunkster said in his best math voice, "60 will give you the highest probability of success in arranging random elements in a deterministic geometric pattern"? Yeah...what he saidπŸ™„πŸ˜ Now if someone can tell me how to follow hashtags on a #samsunggalaxys8 phone I'd be ever so grateful!
