#modernquilter

It's the last day of the #greatbritishquilter EPP Challenge with me @sarahashfordstudio and @sydneyrosedesigns in association with @oliveandflohandcraft and what an incredible, inspiring week it's been!! There is SO much talent in our wonderful community! I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have and thank you all SO much for getting involved and taking part. πŸ’•

Well here is one of my modest EPP projects, a design taken from a book called Little Quilts by @sfielke and Amy Lobsiger. I just loved embroidering this bee over the top of the hexies and plan on designing some of my own hexie/embroideries soon too!
There's still time to enter the giveaway if you've not done so already, check back last nights post for details πŸ™‚

Thinking about the next steps for this quilt top I pulled out of the WIP box this week. I’ve exhausted the red and white yard dyed background fabric... and it’s not quite wide enough. Time to pivot, but not sure where to just yet... β€’β€’β€’
Most of the pieced blocks are made by students in my #loveimprovquilting classes πŸ’•πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ˜

So I didn’t really spend #saturdaynightcraftalong crafting. Instead I spent it celebrating an amazing woman who has touched my life so incredibly, despite me never meeting her. (Confession: I lied about who these were for). These quilts were for my husband and his 2 sisters, and they were made in memory of their mother who past away a year before I met them. I will post some more pictures, and try to express everything this family means to me then. @baber__ @singinitsolo .

Another cute little baby quilt I made for a friends custom order. This was a gender neutral safari theme and I knew right away I would have to use this Savannah line by @gingiber. I love all these coordinating prints and the panel I used for the backing is so cute! Plus giant loopy quilt for the win! #woollypetalsquilts #gingiberfabric #savannahfabric #babyquilt #modernquilter

Saturday night craft along (@myteaandbrie), second-grade style. πŸ™‚ S and a good friend made potholders (mostly because I didn’t want to put away the insulbright, @sewkiki25). I over-supervised, especially since one of them isn’t mine πŸ‘πŸ»β˜ΊοΈ #helicoptermom #indygirl #saturdaynightcraftalong

There's so many new buttons in the shop - we just love matching them to the fabrics. These tiny hearts, stars and flowers are too cute to resist!

Memories + Modern in One. This new concept is a show stopper let me tell you. Taking beloved baby clothes from the first year of life and merging those precious fiber memories with clean, solid colors give you this stunning modern quilt. Stylish enough to use anywhere, but still packs all the sentiment a traditional memory quilt has, just in a new, fun modern twist. β€’
β€’
Ps. I will still be offering the classic memory quilt style. I will just be adding this new modern version to the selection. β€’
Hope you love it! β€’

My completed #fallenpetalquilt top, in a new colorway! I’ve decided to write a quilt pattern for this design to hopefully make available the week of #QuiltCon, where this quilt showed one year ago. This quilt in the original colorway is in @themqg’s brand new book, so I thought it would be a good time to make the pattern available. I wrote the pattern before sewing this top, then tested it by following my directions. I’m looking for 2 committed pattern testers to make the top in 3 weeks so I have time to make the edits and have the pattern ready in time for QuiltCon! Please let me know if you’re interested. I can’t wait to see your versions! πŸ’– #quiltaposy #quiltpattern #quiltcon2018 #mqgbook

And what happy, busy days they have been! (Can you tell from my lack of posts! πŸ˜†) 2018 has already been full of positive changes. Started 2 new jobs, which I’m loving! Both fabric and sewing related! Feeling very loved on and functioning in the avenues that fill my bucket and build on my strengths.
Side note: have you read Strengths Finder? It was so helpful to bring to light what areas I’m strong in and how I best work in a team. .

Morning #citytilesqal. Made a quick video of the possible layout. What do you think?

Been working away this week on a new paper pieced Pattern. The @daylightcompany Wafer light box makes paper piecing a breeze y'all! No more second guessing placement of fabric while sewing...

Both sizes of the aqua #waterfallpillow are now in the shop! If you need a pop of color to brighten up your house, this is a fun way to do it πŸ’™

Here's the first (though I'm showing it last) of my #improvbee blocks for Lucy @_lucyengels. The theme is Wes Anderson's film "The Grand Budapest Hotel" - with an emphasis on his use of repetition of form.
.
I love the combination of that beautiful rich red and purple, throughout the film. β™₯οΈπŸ’œ (Film still that inspired block - in 2nd pic)
.
I think this meets part of the brief re repetition of form 😬🀞
