I've been working on this new quilt that will be featured on Moda Bakeshop. The (free!) tutorial will be coming your way any day now. I will be sure to do a post about it here and on Facebook when it's up. It's a fast and easy quilt with a quick cutting technique, previewed below.
I finished the quilt top a couple days ago and I may have bribed my son with skittles for a good picture. :) More pictures coming soon.
Oh yes, I've been baking lots of pies. It started when this guy picked a bucket full of blueberries. I didn't know what to do with all of them and didn't want the berries to go bad so I did what any logical person would do and made a pie, obviously.
On a different note (but just as sweet as my fat free pies ;) ... my latest stash additions are these lovelies from Simply Sweet Fabric. You can get the bundle here and here. The shop owner, Shay, is so sweet AND she makes the sweetest bundles. She has a lot of this vintage-floral look that I'm crazy about right now. I think my next quilt will use these fabrics.
Also, I should mention that my next Quilt-as-you-Go class is on Tuesday (it's full) but the Quilting Loft just listed another class for September 23rd. If you're in the area, I'd love to quilt with you! Here's a recent quilt-as-you-go that one of my students, Sarah (@oscarandthesparrow on instagram) made using my technique. Isn't it gorgeous?!
Speaking of Quilt-as-you-Go, I made this QAYGo ninja pillow for my brother who recently turned the big 3-0.
upcoming book! :)
Other than pies, fabric and my latest quilt project, I've been enjoying the Summer with my favorite little guy. That's a quilt-as-you-go quilt below (and yes, it will be in my book!) :)
It's crazy that Fall is just around the corner. The other morning I felt a cool chill in the air and I LOVED it. I guess i'm not much of a Summer girl...I admit that I'm one of those Seattleites that complain about too much sun and feel like they're withering away in the heat :-p So of course I went out and bought some new, Fall boots in preparation for the new season!

By the way, a lot of these photos are from my Instagram, so if you're not following my photo feed yet you should!:) Sorry for all the repeats for anyone that already follows!
My home is never this neat (the mess is behind the photographer ;) but I snapped this photo shortly after cleaning and reorganizing my quilt ladder. I love how quilts can bring pops of color and coziness all around a home.
