Summer Pattern Sale!

Three of my favorite summer patterns will be half price on Craftsy all summer long! You can find these three patterns for $5.25 each HERE.

Nautical Table Runner QCP-304

Seaglass QCP-109

Third Seasonal Trio QCP-103

So come and get your summer patterns while the weather is hot and the sewing room is hopefully cool!

This week I’m still plugging along on quilting the love notes quilt for Lindsey. I am enjoying ruler work for the lines on the ┬áinner border and the center block flower motif. The outer border is getting a stipple treatment. The corners of the love notes are getting a free motion back and forth squiggle. How’s that for a technical term?

I have this much left to do…

This is taking time but as I mentioned, I’m ok with that because I like the results. The rulers are fun to work with and I’m discovering more things I can do with the ones I own. It’s also the first time I’m floating a quilt top which simply means the top is not attached to a roller. I’m using the painter’s tape that you see in the photo as a guide on each end of the pole. I know my quilt top must line up with the tape or it will be quilted crooked. It’s good to keep learning and using easier ways to quilt.

Have a super weekend, everybody!

Friday Post & Flash Sale

Happy Happy Friday!!!!!!!

It’s snowing here and it’s very cold seeing as we woke up to cold air coming out of our heat vents! I’m pretty sure I didn’t set the heat to 62 degrees when I went to bed last night. Hoping the repairman gets here in a hurry this morning. It looks like this which isn’t bad but makes me feel even colder.

This week I’m still working on Frozen Makeup Bags for the craft fair in December.

I’m running in to a little snafu as stores seem to be sold out of this Frozen fabric. My intention was to bring 12 to the fair with me to sell alongside my patterns but I’ve already sold a few and I’m not quite sure I’ll be able to get more fabric. Tomorrow I’m heading to the Fabric Place Basement to visit the Boston Modern Quilt Guild for the first time so I’ll check there for it. I ordered some online at Joann’s and got notification that the order was canceled because they didn’t have it. I’m also awaiting an order of zippers…so a bit of a standstill at the moment.

I am happy to say that I’ll be delivering 10 more Comfort Bears to the police station as they get ready to head into the holiday season.
It makes me happy to know that they have something comforting to offer any child under duress.

While I was pricing items for the craft fair yesterday, I flipped through Little Quilts For Big Occasions and started thinking about how fun it was to design these projects and what a great book it would be for kids as well as adults. The designs are holiday themed and timeless so I decided to put the book on a flash sale this weekend for 20% off in the Quilt Cabana Patterns Shop . You can purchase it for $7.95 Here are some great photos of the projects that I borrowed from the Leisure Arts website. I’m going pull out my Thanksgiving one and hang that up today. These are all about the same size so once you choose a spot in the house to hang them, you can just switch them out holiday to holiday.

Slippers and Fourth Seasonal Trio

Leah and I purchased some new slippers while we were in NH. They are called Snoozies and they were $12.99. So far they are very comfortable although a bit too warm on the feet in the middle of a heatwave! I love how soft they are inside and how cute they are outside!!
Here are the ones Leah got (one day after her birthday)

These remind me of Pam Kitty Love’s fabrics.

I am going to be posting photos of the Seasonal Trio pattern projects over the next few posts. They will be out of order because I started posting yesterday with the Third Seasonal Trio since it features a summer project. If you want to see the Third Seasonal Trio photos click here.
These patterns are available now for sale through QuiltWoman. Click here to see the patterns and so much more on that website!! The Seasonal Trio patterns are available as paper patterns and digital downloads.
