Sewing Projects for a Full Heart (and Bobbin)!

When someone is covered in a cozy, warm quilt, they are reminded that someone sat at a sewing machine for hours, carefully piecing and stitching, with them in mind. A handmade table runner sitting on the family dining table shows a loving home to all who feast there. To be gifted a wall hanging is a reminder that they are loved by its maker.

Valentine’s day is one of the best holidays to make for because it’s about love and we LOVE to make! Here are some sweet as pie project ideas:

Catching up and Eden Quilts!

Well, I have neglected this poor blog haven’t I?  I have been sick with a head cold from ‘youknowwhere’  Ugh!  I am hoping it is on it’s way out.   🙂

Things have stayed busy, at home and at the shop.  We are redecorating for Springtime and having so much fun with that process.  All the beautiful new spring time fabrics are so inspiring!  Eden, Spring Fever, Verna, Dill Blossom, Hunky Dory, Love….I could go on and on.  Really though, I just need anything around me that reminds me that Spring IS coming.    🙂

We finished the Eden quilt and made a display with it.  It is such an easy pattern that Mom made using a jelly roll and a charm pack.  (yes, A charm pack.  as in one)

Adorable, isn’t it?  I think it would cheer up any bedroom…just what the doctor ordered, if you ask me.

Well, you all have a great day.  I’m off to take more cold medicine and start a load of laundry!  (fun times!)


PS.  We have so much to show you.  Tutorials, patterns…ideas and more.  Exciting things are  happening for us and I can’t wait to tell you about them all!!
