I'm spending a lot more time on the computer these days, which means more quilt designing in Illustrator. I'm calling this one The Apophyllite Quilt. Can't wait to share the final product next week ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿค—
.
.
This is my setup for sewing blocks together. I stack up the block pieces and chain piece in rounds. Laying them back out after each seam to make sure they stay oriented correctly. .
.
I'm thinking about trying my hand at making this into a pattern. If I say that here, I have to follow through, right?

I created this block a few months ago as a variation on the classic churn dash block.
One of the things I love most about it is that the longer you stare at it, the more shapes and patterns begin to emerge.
And the more I play around with it in different colorways, the more magical it gets. I'm feeling legit obsessed with it and considering doing a #100dayproject to really explore it and then pick a top ten to make. ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’ฅ

Using the layout app to play around with mirroring blocks this morning.
I think this one is the winner ๐Ÿ†

It feels a little wrong posting these icy/overcast colors on such a pretty sunny day. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

Few things are more frustrating to me than when something I really want to use doesn't work.
Thankfully, my serger problems are now resolved. .

It's my birthday y'all!!! ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ•๐ŸŽ‡
Spent some time this morning longarming a charity quilt @gossypiumquilts. I was in too much of a hurry to take any pictures ๐Ÿ˜ฌ probably for the better...it was a bit rough around the edges.
Anyways, here is my cute photobomber testing out the goods.

I've been saving avocado skins and seeds in my freezer for soooo long with intentions of trying out some natural dying. I can't believe it took so long to finally put them in a pot, it was so easy! And now I have the prettiest pale pink fabric ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— #๐Ÿฅ‘

Looking for recommendations on a place to rent time on a long arm quilting machine in the Seattle area.
It's so hard for me to leave quilt tops unfinished, but I'm trying to save some up so I can try out long arming. ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’ช

Getting settled in to our 2nd temporary home. At least we'll be in this one for a few months so I can unpack the sewing machine. Before the quilting resumes, I've got a few house projects to work on, like these cute pillow cases.

I'm still in the throes of moving (aka all my sewing supplies are still in storage ๐Ÿ˜ฉ) but my Prism Waves Quilt is beautifully on display in Savannah this weekend. Wish I was there with y'all!! ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ‘

Thanks to Heather @makeitsewnumber1 for ๐Ÿ“ธ

Pretty sure I'm officially overgramming this quilt...but can you blame me? โ€ข
Many many Thank Yous to Heather @makeitsewnumber1 for helping me get those pins in and to Chase @blacksquirrelfabric for letting us use her gorgeous space and to both of you for baby wrangling!! โ€ข
More Thank Yous to those who chimed in with basting advice on my last post. I ended up doing the ole masking tape on the floor move for this quilt, but I'm definitely going to be more adventurous in the future!! โ€ข
And one more plug for @blacksquirrelfabric If you're in the Bay Area you must check it out! Not only does she have a full wall of yummy squishy yarns, she has done a great job of curating notions and craft related items for all kinds of crafters ๐Ÿ˜ป๐ŸŽ

Tried out table basting last night...I don't think it is going to work out between us, the backing just won't stay taught enough for me.
This beast of a quilt is about 110x110 ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ‹
Anyone basted outside before? I've got access to a driveway that is probably big enough, but I'm always worried about the backing getting dirty before start quilting on my machine and I'm worried that crawling all over it to get the pins in might rub the backing on a rough spot of cement and tear the fabric. Any advice???

This is the King's Dash Block. A variation of the classic Churn Dash 9-patch I came up with for the King size bed quilt I'm working on.
I'm already plotting to make a more colorful quilt with this block later in the year. It is so cool to look at all the shapes and patterns that emerge once you put the blocks together. ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ–ค

jic you were wondering, this is what 800 triangles looks like ๐Ÿ˜‚. We are moving to Seattle in a couple of weeks and I decided it is of the utmost importance to make one final Californian quilt - a King size Black and White quilt for our bed. #productiveprocrastination #whatboxes #halfsquaretriangles #blackandwhite #blackandwhitequilts

Inspired by my current color obsession - Mauve/dusty rose and bunting banners. ๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿ’’๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿ”ฎ

This dwr pillow is my warm up exercise. So many ideas brewing ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿบ

Mmmโœจthese colorsโœจforever. ๐Ÿค—

Speaking of colors, Vanessa from @hellopidgepidge asked me a few weeks ago to write a blurb about color for her awesome newsletter. Her feed is full of gorgeous weavings and color inspiration too.
Newsletter comes out tomorrow! www.hellopidgepidge.com to subscribe and check it out!!

It's been a few weeks since I made any pillows.
This one is headed somewhere special for Christmas.
The more I look at it, the more obsessed I'm becoming with these colors together. I better hurry up and wrap it before I change my mind ๐Ÿ˜Š
