Meow Cottons Blog Tour

Today I have the most MEOWvelous new prints to show you! Yep. I’m going there. I’m going to cram as many cat puns into this post as I can. When Riley Blake approached me about sewing up something using Meow Cottons from Marcia Cornell for My Mind’s Eye, I had a loose idea of using…

The Artist UnSEWn- Charlotte by Tanya Whelan

Free Spirit has sort of cornered the market on roses where fabric is concerned. Some of my favorite Free Spirit artists have done their spin on this lovely bloom, and Tanya Whelan is no exception. In fact, I think it’s safe to say that roses are her specialty. Her latest collection, Charlotte, features the gorgeous…

The Artist UnSEWn- Posy by Amy Reber

I’m excited to get to introduce one of Free Spirit Fabrics’ newest lines, featuring one of their newest designers. Amy Reber is launching her first line, Posy, and I had the pleasure of sewing up these funky fresh fabrics.

Glamper-licious with a Cherry on Top

Nothing says summer like being outdoors, enjoying a slower pace, and eating sweet treats that are at their best once a year. Growing up in the Midwest, cherries were reserved for summer days, and I remember them being a staple of our 4th of July celebrations.

The Artist UnSEWn- Love & Friendship by Verna Mosquera

It has been over 3 years since I got that exciting email from Free Spirit Fabrics, asking me to recreate some Parson Gray projects for them for Quilt Market. They later invited me to be a part of their One Fabric Nation crew and I have been able to sew so many amazing things!

Trimming Things Up a Little

I’m not sure exactly where my transition from normal to overweight took place. It was a gradual thing, but the freedom I gained in the time between high school and college proved to be detrimental to my waistline and my health. I will save the longer version of this story for another time, but I…

Stella in Peppermint Rose by Verna Mosquera

Stella. What can I say? I love this pattern. She’s got that boutique look that sets her apart from a lot of peasant patterns out there. While she packs a powerful, princessy punch, she is a labor of love, and sometimes you just don’t have time for all of those stripwork pieces and all of those ruffles. Can I get an AMEN?!?

Goldilocks Blog Tour- Addie Jo Skirt

I’m so thrilled to bring you another project from Riley Blake! I love the variety of prints and textures they bring to the fabric world, and they are some of my favorite people to work with in the industry. Today I’m bringing you a project from one of their newest designers, Jill Howarth. Her Goldilocks…

One Fabric Nation- Intermix by Erin McMorris

I have another gorgeous line of Free Spirit Fabric to share with you! Today I’m showing off the funky and fabulous new prints from Erin McMorris. I fell in love with Erin’s designs last fall when I stumbled across Noteworthy and ordered it as fast as I could to use it for a little Back-to-School tunic for my first grader.

One Thimble 14- Amuse Boho Top and Dress

I seriously can’t believe that we have made it to Issue 14 of One Thimble! It seems like the time has flown by! I’m excited to participate in the tour again, especially considering I’m sewing for ME this time! How’s that for self-care sewing!
