Playing with scraps tonight an making some improv log cabin blocks. I'm testing a bit of color theory that I learned while volunteering as the teaching assistant for @maychappell at #quiltcon . She taught about grey colors and it was enlightening! All greyed colors go together! Wow!!! #quiltcon2017 #quiltconeast #colortheory #scrappy #improv #scrappyimprov #scrappyblocks #improvlogcabin #logcabin #scrapbusting #itssopretty #handmade #maker

Though this arrived too late for QuiltCon, I put it on as soon as it arrived in today's mail. The statement is 100 percent true! #quiltcon2017 #quiltconeast #quiltconeast2017 #wheremypeopleare #modernquilters Sorry this didn't arrive before you left @darlingdi πŸ˜•

Day 14 #IGquiltfest
Recent finish.

@amyscreativeside suggested post it even if you have already so I hope you aren't tired of my Silver Lining. It's my most recent COMPLETE finish!

This is a picture with the flash so that you can see the Silver Linings appear which otherwise just look grey. To me, that is the same in life. We often need to look at something differently to see the silver lining - especially if we are in the middle of a storm.
This was a quilt for DH and I - our 2016 (& 2015) were that storm. I try to always look for the silver lining, it's definitely not always easy.
It meant that much more to me that this hung at QuiltCon and I grabbed a picture of @tulapink with my quilt (πŸ˜‚ you need to scroll and squint to see that one!) This didn't come home with me as it was kept to be photographed for a book on modern quilting. There's the Silver Lining of 2016!
It was made for the Nine Patch Challenge.

I'm sponsoring #IGQuiltfest today! Go to @amyscreativeside to learn how to enter and win every single one of my patterns!! Today's prompt for IGQuilfest is a recent finish. My most recent finish is the quilt for my newest pattern Into The Deep. This pattern debuted in my booth at #QuiltCon2017, and I finished it in just the nick of time. I picked it up from my printer only 3 days before I left for Quiltcon, and the very last day that he was open before I had to leave! It just debuted in the shop on my website today!

This video is oddly soothing... I never new alligators made this sound. Listen at the end of the video. Taken while I was in Georgia - @luckycharm93635 I just had to post this for you and at least you weren't with me as I was videoing!! 😘

My full #quiltcon experience is #ontheblog today, full of photos, an overview of the classes and lectures I took, the quilts, the vendors, my reflection, and more. I'm especially grateful to my supportive family since pretty much all of my quilting endeavours and adventures are made possible thanks to them, and Quilt Con memories are all the more special thanks to the presence of these two: @knightquilter my husband and talented quilt photography assistant, and not-so-baby Finn. They begged for Night Quilter t-shirts to wear to Savannah and rocked them!! Click the link in my profile and enjoy the read πŸ˜˜πŸ’•

First day for real studio time since #quiltconeast Feeling a little punch-drunk after sorting through my @stitchindye stash. I think I'm definitely going with the gingham as the partner. #tigermelontigermoon #sundaysewing

#TBT to when I met @misterdomestic at the @artgalleryfabric booth.
He is as great IRL as he is on IG and now I really want to go to Portland and sew all the jersey... 😘
Hard to believe this was a week ago.
Definitely #quiltconwithdrawal in full effect.

I almost didn't catch that there was a package on my porch but I finally stumbled on it and even though it had been torn open there was still a copy of #quiltconmagazine in it!!! I'm still so blown away that Modern Stepping Stones is in the gallery sections with such amazing quilts from #quiltcon and right next to Jo A Glover's quilt Exchange Student. Modern Stepping Stones will also be included in the Best of Quiltcon traveling exhibit!!! #showusyourmqg #themqg #mqg #quilt #quiltconeast #quiltcon2017 #quiltachusetts #quiltachusettsmodernsteppingstones #modernquiltinglove #quiltdesign #publishedquilt #bestofquiltcon #quiltcontravelingshow

She had us at "Bauhaus". Actually... we fell in from love across the room. This is Berg No 2 by Kathleen Probst @mod_in_your_eye in the Improvisation category. Disclaimer: we removed the curtain from this pic so the color really pops. #quiltcon #quiltconeast #quiltcon2017 @themqg

#tbt to last weekend when I met @katarinaroccella at QuiltCon...all of you who went crazy over Livy's Quilt that was made for @megsmegsmeg, Katarina is the designer behind all of the fabrics in that quilt. Remember that navy blue background with amazing pink roses?? Yep. 😍 #quiltconeast #modernquilt #quilt #creativelifehappylife

My trusty Quilter's Planner Mini helped me stay organized during my travels to QuiltCon and the clips from @evergreenartsupply were super helpful (holding business cards, keeping my pages flat, EPP assistance, impromptu hair clip, and more!). We've teamed up with @evergreenartsupply to bring you a fun QuiltCon recovery giveaway... Stay tuned for more details soon! #teaser Β· Β· Β·
