At Disney for Friday Foto Fun #13

Happy Friday everyone!  I survived the first week back in reality…I mean work.  It was a super short 3 day week for me since Monday was New Year’s Day, and I’m on vacation today!  I’m nice and warm in Orlando, FL for the Walt Disney World Marathon this Sunday.  It’s not going to be the best run as I’ve been plagued with foot injuries all...

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!

The Diamond is paper pieced from a sketch I made on graph paper.  I drew and redrew the diamond until...

I’ll discuss the design process of this quilt in 2 weeks after it’s in the mail to my partner!  It’s...

Perfectly Imperfect

I was very motivated to finish Chic Country this week to gain access back to my design wall for my next pattern.  There is nothing quite as motivating as just needing the space.  Chic Country was a pattern that has been on my to do list for since April, 2016.  After taking the class from the Sew Kind of Wonderful sisters, Helen and Sherilyn, at...

Winter Quiltfest 2017 Recap

Winter Quiltfest 2017 was absolutely one of the most fun weekend retreats I’ve ever been to!  It was my first quilting retreat, but that doesn’t matter; it was AMAZING!  I did the whole package for Winter Quiltfest; I arrived Wednesday afternoon and stayed all the way until Sunday.  I took 5 different classes and learned all sorts of different techniques.  The organizers for the event...
