Works in Progress

I thought I'd post some pictures of some of my WIPs today. I've got them in various states of doneness.

Cheery Christmas charm pack HSTs.  Need to make something with these.


yay! FELT.

That's what I've been working on this week, well... and last week. I still have a lot of squares to do for the Star Trek quilt. The Cheery Christmas HSTs will probably become mug rugs for holiday gifts (note to self - start sewing those). The felt is for a 3rd birthday crown for Penn (ugh! is my baby really going to be three?). Enjoy your day and sew on!

Go Boldly

I'm working on a new quilt x-mas present for my mom. She is a huge Star Trek fan - a Trekker (do not say Trekkie unless you want to lose an arm). Every year and every holiday my mom gets something Star Trek. I had pretty much exhausted my ideas and then I thought I would make a Star Trek quilt for her. I love the idea of merging the traditional art of quilting and the ultra-modern idea of Star Trek. I bought some really neat fabric from Spoonflower - I didn't design my own, although I will in the future because that is just AWESOME - and I decided that the design would be all log cabin or at least log cabin inspired blocks. I have a few finished and they look like... this:

I'm really excited for this project and I can't wait for the x-mas day reveal.

Sew on, boldly!

Getting Started

Hi! I've been blogging for a few years and just recently my blog ( has started to become more and more about quilting and sewing. I wanted to make a bit of a transition and have a blog dedicated to sewing and quilting and knitting and fiber-love of all kinds and this is it.
I plan to start moving some things over in the next few days. I would really love to post tutorials and patterns, since I usually design my own quilts. I love modern quilts based on traditional blocks and patterns. I like modern fabrics and lots and lots of color.
I hope you will join me in this journey. I look forward to making lots of quilting and sewing and knitting friends from everywhere.
Today I am thankful for community and resources.

Get your sew on!
