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!

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- Hotel Frederiksted

It’s that time again! I’m here to tell you all about Hotel Frederiksted, the newest line from Jennifer Paganelli that ships this month from Free Spirit Fabrics! I’m not gonna lie . . . I never turn down an opportunity to sew with my favorite JPags, but this line takes the cake! I had such…

One Fabric Nation- Loominous 2 Charly

I have this quirky little habit when it comes to fabric designers. Sometimes I give designers nicknames. I use them with my fabric savvy friends because we all talk online and our fingers get weary of typing out all of the names. You know, because we have to save our precious fingers for the sewing. Names like JPags, JDew, and AMH frequent our conversations and Mrs. Paganelli, Mr. Dewberry, and Mrs. Horner are among our favorites.

Labor Day SALE

9 years ago this weekend, I was hoping for a REAL Labor Day. As in, have a baby, Labor Day. We thought things would go one way, but they went another, and while I had a baby on September 5, 2009, there was definitely no labor involved. So even though we had a c-section with…

Posy Garden Blog Tour

One of the coolest things I got to see at Quilt Market was Carina Gardner’s infamous camper AKA “Glamper”. She redid the inside of the camper to reflect her newest line for Riley Blake Fabrics. Pulled it right into the convention center! Quilting friends from far and near sewed up the cutest mini quilts and…
