MAKE ALL THE THINGS VLOG is back, and it’s SHORT!
Recently I’ve been participating in the #mysmallworldqal over on instagram. The original pattern is by Jen Kingwell (I worship at her quilty feet) and it’s found in the Spring 2015 issue of Quiltmania. I’ve just finished part 2 and expect to dive into part 3 today. The pattern is written in a fairly inefficient way, […]

No, not little paper hexies sewn painstakingly by hand, but rather sewing fabric to paper to achieve a level of accuracy very difficult to achieve in traditional piecing. Most often I […]
I was just sitting here thinking, hm, this washi tape in my hand looks like it might be the exact same width as my IKEA Expedit bookshelves. And lo’ and behold, they are! What’s more, I have multiple brands sitting here and they’re ALL the exact same width. So with that in mind, here’s the […]
