Snuggle Under This

Look who is peeking from behind her quilt...Sarah's T-shirt quilt is now completed and she has taken it back to college with her.  Looks to me like she loves it!

S is for Stitching

Wow, do any of you feel like crawling back into your pajamas as soon as you get home from work?  Sometimes I do!  But not tonight, I am tracing designs and making templates for the hand piecing for the "Daisy Do" block.  Its been a long time since I made templates.  I plan to use Auriful #50 thread for the hand piecing.

Selvage Storage

I found this gingham printed metal container on the clearance table at Michaels.  I knew it would be perfect to keep my saved selvage strips in.  And it will look nice in my sewing room too!

New book, new fabrics, new project! Jen Kingwell QAL

New book - check!  New fabrics - check!  New project - check!
I chose to use Jen's new fabric line to start this project "Daisy Do" from her new book,
Quilt Lovely.  I have always wanted to do a hand pieced quilt, when I saw this quilt on the book cover, I knew it had to be hand pieced.  I think it will be fun to collect fabrics to add to this collection, maybe more yellows, oranges, blues and bright pinks!
