This and That

First, I want to share with you that I have another quilt published in a magazine! Eeek!! My Bamboo Shoots quilt is featured in the Fall 2014 issue of Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts, which should be hitting stores soon.  I think the photography team did a fantastic job displaying this quilt.



I don't have the quilt back yet from the publisher but I did have this older picture to share.  I used Robert Kaufman's Quilter's Linen in three colors for the entire quilt.  I really love the simplicity and mid-century feel to this one.  I look forward to getting this quilt back and seeing it again!


Update- I have released this design as one of my patterns. If you would like to purchase, you can go here. Thanks!

Next, I want to publicly and shamelessly give myself a big pat on the back for finishing a commission that's been weighing on me for quite some time. I just haven't been able to find time to get into my sewing room and work on these. Potholders are not my favorite thing to sew and someone wanted all the old Nearly Insane orphan blocks I had made into hot pads. 
Yesterday, I finally finished the final nine.  
(I think I deserve some fabric shopping for this one!)




This customer previously bought some I had made in turquoise and framed them.  
I thought this was a great idea!


And finally. for those in the Eugene area I have scheduled a class at Our Sewing Room on September 27th 2014. We will be working with scraps and making the block used in the Geese Migration Quilt recently found on the cover of Quilty magazine.  If you have wanted to get more creative with your scraps and want to learn how to see them more as bits of color rather than unloved fabrics, you might want to join in the fun!



If you are interested, you can contact me or sign up directly at Our Sewing Room.

Thanks for stopping by!

Those nearly insane blocks are gorgeous! Great job finishing the commission :) I'm also a fan of your bamboo shoots quilt. It really evokes it's name in the full quilt shot.

You go girl! That quilt is awesome.....you are right, the pictures are fantastic. If only they could do all of our photography:)

Wow! Those are some potholders! I was so glad to see them framed. I would never use those as pot holders! Just gorgeous.

I adore that quilt. Your quilting is perfect for it. I'm curious as to how the quilt feels. I haven't ever used (or seen) that linen. I'm sure it gives the quilt great texture. The pot holders are beautiful. I agree with Ramona; I could never use those as pot holders.
