Trying Something New

I had an idea this morning...
You can never have too many t-shirts, right?

Nothing

Seriously. There is absolutely no sewing of any kind happening over here.
We're in a holding pattern waiting for some big news.

I'm still de-stashing and have marked the fabric scraps down to $2/yard in the Etsy store.


I'm also selling some of my quilts.
The GIANT Sale is progressing pretty well in the main store. I've marked some fabrics down to less than $4/yard over there, so check it out if you'd like...

In other, totally non-sewing-related news, Valentine's Day was fun!

Pinwheel Party

If you've been following me on Instagram, you know that I've been working on another Pinwheel Party quilt for the last week or so.
Today I finally finished the top!

Unfortunately the weather is atrocious around here, so good photos are not happening.
I did manage to get a couple of snaps taken in the dining room but pictures of the whole thing will have to wait for a drier day.

I was worried about all the white in the background but, now that it's done, I think it's crisp looking.
The dots are Moda Essential Dots, available in the store and the background is my standard Moda Bella color 9900-98.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that there is a GIANT Sale going on in the store. A move may be in the works and I'm urgently trying to reduce inventory!

Stash Reducing and Scrap Busting #1

This weekend I have a bee in my bonnet. It's time to get rid of some of the fabric cluttering things up around here and make room for the new.
It's funny how our tastes change over time.

I figured some of my blog readers will be able to give these fabrics good homes, so I'm asking around $2.50/yd to try and recoup a little fraction of my original cost (and pay the PayPal fees).

I will provide as much info as I can glean from the selvedges.

South Sea Imports
Quantity: 1.5 yards
Price: $3.75

2.
Sunset
Paint Brush Studio
Quantity: 2.25 yards
Price: $5.60

3.
Noah's Ark by Jim Shore
Red Rooster Fabrics
Quantity: 1.75 yards
Price: $4.35

4.
Sunrise
Exclusively Quilters / Classic Cottons
Quantity: 2.5 yards
Price: $6.25

1930's Reproduction Bunting Quilt

The weather finally (kind of) cooperated yesterday and I managed to take a couple of photos of the 30's Bunting Quilt.

I pieced the binding using scraps from the blocks and I really love how it turned out.

Even though it's hard to tell from the photos, the back is Michael Miller Garden Pindots in Sunny Yellow which matches the 30's Yellow Bella Solid I used on the front really well.

The pattern is in my Craftsy store. I've added a link in the right sidebar.
Kits to follow soon.

WIP Wednesday

Yesterday I started another Pinwheel Party quilt. Not sure about the white background, but I do love Moda's Essential Dots.
The first seven blocks are done. Five more to go. And sashing and borders.


(I also finished the 30's Bunting quilt. Just waiting for the weather to change and I'll take some photos. With a real camera.)
