100th Blog Post! (Friday Foto Fun #12)

Today is a huge milestone for me since it’s my 100th blog post!  That’s so exciting! I have been blogging for about a year and a half, and it started out really slowly before I hit my stride.  For everyone that’s been reading since then (Hi, family!), thanks so much for joining me on this journey thus far!  This week at home has been pretty...

2018 Planning Party

Yvonne at Quilting Jet Girl is hosting this year’s planning party! I figured this would be a great way for me to detail out my goals for the upcoming year. Looking back through my blog posts for my 2017 goals, the only tangible goal I documented was releasing 4 patterns this year.  I’m happy to say that I achieved that goal, and I would like...

10 more days till Christmas! (Friday Foto Fun #10)

Is it too late to finally put decorations out around the house?  Our house is decoration-less at the moment and it feels more like January…cold and not very festive! I feel like I’m in denial that Christmas is coming.  I haven’t really worked on any of my Christmas-y projects this fall except the I Wish You a Merry QAL quilt.  Maybe next year right?!  Anyways…I...

Tru Inspiration! (Friday Foto Fun #9)

This week I was traveling for work in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and I stayed at Tru, a new Hilton brand family hotel. It’s a really trendy hipster more affordable hotel.  I saw inspiration for quilts everywhere with all the bright colors and designs throughout the hotel.  My favorite was this amazing wallpaper.  I actually want to make this into a quilt! (Who would have guessed?  It...

I Wish You A Merry QAL – Finished Quilt Top

I’m so proud to present my finished quilt top!  I added basic sashing and a border to my quilt blocks!  Since I designed block 5, I decided to put the block front and center. Whenever there is sashing, having cornerstones will make sure the quilt gets aligned properly. My quilt finishes at 50″x64″.

Last Month of 2017! (Friday Foto Fun #8)

Snowed in October, but high of 50 on Sunday?! I’ll take it!  This was my first full week at home in awhile, and it was so productive!  Plus I released my latest pattern this past Tuesday, and I got shout out from Kate Spain, how cool!  I am so happy I got to meet her last QuiltCon even though I completely fan-girled. Anyway, on to...
