quilting time

I’ve been on something of a sewing hiatus lately. But those unfinished quilt tops have been driving me crazy. So, I’ve been gathering fabrics to start sewing some backings.

This is my least favorite part of the quilting process. But the good part is that I’ll be using up a lot of fabric. Which means that there will be some space on my fabric shelf. Which means there will be a fabric shopping spree in my future :)


happy birthday, mom

I was at Joann Fabric last week and spotted some Alexander Henry (my fave).

There’s always a little AH hidden somewhere in Joanns. And the 50% coupon is what makes fabric shopping there so. much. fun. I used the fabric to make my mom a pillow for her birthday.

Love ya, mama!

…and we’re folding

The fabric chaos was just too much for me.

Ahhh…so much better.

I followed this folding tutorial from turning*turning. Everything is so much easier to find now. I haven’t had a lot of time to sew recently, but I find that I’m much more productive and creative in a clean and organized space.

And it wasn’t until I was going though my fabrics that I realized just how much yardage I have of Alexander Henry’s Birdsong. I’m not sure how it happened and I won’t reveal numbers – but it’s. a. lot.

I had no choice…

Berenstain Bears fabric? Yes, puh-lease!

I usually don’t go for fabric with cartoons on it. Sometimes it feels too cheesy. But I loooved the Berenstain Bears when I was a kid. I even had these little action figures that I got in happy meals. So, this fabric buy gets filed under impulse/nostalgia buy.
