Oh Clementine!

Print

I finally get to show you some Oh Clementine

This is my second fabric collection for Windham Fabrics.  It will be showing at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh, and shipping in early September.  I’m really, really happy with this collection…the colors and prints have that “fresh farmhouse” feel that suit me perfectly.

Ruffle Dishtowels

Oh Clementine Dress

My Mom saved the day and swooped in to make a few things for me to photograph for the Look book (link coming soon!).

Did I mention having my parents 5 minutes away is the best thing ever?  It might also be the reason they take so many vacations now.  ;)

Stack o' Quilts

I have some quilts to show you in the next couple of weeks…and a recipe for the Lemon Cheesecake I ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner yesterday.

Oh Clementine, Windham Fabrics

I turned my artwork in for this line the end of last summer after working on it for months, little by little.  I knew what I wanted with this line…and Windham let me roll with it and have free reign…which is amazing for a manufacturer and I’m so grateful to them.

Just looking at these colors makes me ready for summer…now!  Happy Quilting!

Take Four

After making this quilt four times I think I can make it in my sleep. 

Touchdown Progress

I hate watching movies twice (Disney movies don’t count!)….but I actually don’t mind making the same quilt a couple of times because I can semi-not pay attention and just sew…and eat…and watch TV….while I sew.  It’s perfect. 

Touchdown Quilt

This time I used an unknown white fabric from my stash that was a tiny bit stretchy…it made sewing the “laces” a beast.  Starch, gentle pressing, and an accurate seam are your best friend with those suckers. 

Touchdown, Cluck Cluck Sew

The back is the softest cuddle fabric….and the quilt was gifted last night to a soon-to-be born Seahawks fan.  :)  Now I’m done with football/football quilts for a looong time.

P.S.  For those that asked the brown fabric is a Kona solid in Earth…best brown ever.  Pattern is Touchdown.

Keeping up

IMG_4221

Hey there!  I snapped out of my sewing-coma just long enough to pick the threads off my clothes and write a blog post!  Quilt market is about a month away and as I do every year….I wait until a month before to get everything done.  It’s kookoo and I love it.

My second fabric line with Windham Fabrics will be showing at market, and I have new patterns, tutorials, and lots of this and that to share in this space.

In case you need a project my Button Up pattern is the pattern of the month at the Fat Quarter Shop (and on sale)!

And shipping is free on orders over $40 through Friday…I already did some severe wallet damage.

Some of my favorite prints from Color me Happy, April Showers, and a few basics.  Did I mention I really really love fabric?  :)  Now back to my sewing-coma I go!

A pretty stack

IMG_4157

After stealing away time here and there to sew the past week I have a pretty stack of blocks!  These will be a Twin size quilt for Sophie.

This quilt was a big fat pain to cut out because I wanted so many fabrics in it, but after cutting it went together quickly with chain piecing.

This block makes a perfect Twin size quilt (66” x 88”) if you make 48 blocks, 8 rows of 6 blocks each.

Here’s a quick diagram of the sizes to cut your strips if you ever want to make it!

Again these are the cut sizes…not the sizes after sewing!  The center is a 2 1/2” square and the rest of the strips are 2”.  I could get all these pieces plus some extras out of 2 strips 2” x width of fabric” (except the 2 1/2” square).

In my quilt I’m only using 3 main colors, and lots of white!  So it will probably be dirty 2 seconds after I put it on my 2 year old’s bed… but it’s worth it.  Luckily Oxi-clean and I are already BFF’s.  ;)
