Pastel the Rainbow ๐ŸŒˆ
Today I'm putting a scrappy binding on some whole cloth placemats quilted with variegated thread.

Nice large logo stamp shipping out tomorrow for @satterwhitequilts. I had so much fun with the logogram, I decided to do an extra tiny one! Enjoy! ///

I've been OBSESSED with twirling my seams lately.
It takes a little more planning and attention as you're sewing together each block, but the end result is very satisfying for me. ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ

The Way Colors Feel.
.

Many objects hold memories and meanings for me and as I evolve, the objects I choose to be surrounded by change too. In addition to its own meaning, this picture might be the only object that holds the memories of every single place I've lived for the last 13 addresses.
.
I found the print at the thrift store in Austin just after I moved there in 2003. It lived with me for 4 years in New York City, 2 years in Oakland, and now it is boxed up in a garage just outside of Seattle, waiting for what I hope to be the last time we have to move for several years.
.

I look at this picture and wonder where it came from. Who are these men, who took this photo, who painted watercolors on this black and white photo, are there more just like it?
.
The story I like to tell is that they are a combo taking a break during a wedding gig. One of the guys looks like an instructor I knew during my short stint as a music major at UNT. If you squint hard enough, the other guys could be very poor man's Phil Collins and Huey Lewis.
.
I've been thinking a lot lately about design inspiration. What I keep coming back to is color and shape. It seems like too simple of an answer, but it also seems like the only one that is true. The way colors feel, that is what my art, my designs, and my quilts are all about, that is my color story.
.

Feeling much inspiration lately from @apriltwoeightyquilts for the truth she brings to her art, from @vacilandoquilting for creating such an enviable brand, from @able_ground for crushing it at crystals, and from everyone on Instagram who shares their processes and art with the world everyday.

I know y'all have been waiting for some close up shots of the quilting on this Apophyllite Quilt!! I did these doodle/squiggle lines free motion on a longarm machine. So so so much faster than doing them on my machine at home. ๐Ÿ’ธ

Exciting news, I found out last week that I'll be a vendor at Seattle's Renegade Craft Fair July 22-23!! I've got a lot of work to do to get ready. Including making lots of smaller items to sell, like these cute coasters I've made from the fabric I dyed last week. Time to get busy!! .

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‘

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???
