Look what I just won . . .

Gorgeous, right?!!!!  This is Heirloom by Joel Dewberry.  Oh, the wheels are turning already.

This bundle is coming from Jennifer of Dragonfly Fabric in Canada.  Check out her online shop.  It is beautiful.

Thank you so much Jennifer!

Four "Y" Seams

Four wonky "Y" seams . . . that's what it would take at every intersection to put sashing on this quilt.

As much as I like the "Y" (go Cougars!!!), I do not like "Y" seams.

No sashing it is.

WIP Wednesday: To Sash or Not To Sash?

That is the question.

Here's one of several Works-In-Progress that I would love to finish.  Do you think I should add a small white sashing between each hexagon or do you think I could just stitch them together as-is?

Fabric: Terrain by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics

And this is what you do with all of the little scraps left over . . .

Journal cover tutorial found here.

And this is what happens when you forget that you left a quilt on the "design floor" when destructo-baby wakes up.

I'm linking up.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Welcome . . .

 . . . to the new blog!

I enjoyed a fun and busy summer with my family.  Now that the kiddos are back in school, I'm ready for more sewing time and more blogging time.  I was ready to really create an identity too.  So here's a new blog and it still needs some work, but I've got lots of sewing to share.  Stay tuned for all of the fun things I've worked on for the last few months.
