I want to make something more “grown up” and subdued, yet modern... but I don’t know what. @magdalenadetz I might be needing help from you, you’re the expert on this! 😁 First tentative fabric pull... I’m really drawn to earthy tones recently... At the same time I feel like making something bright and rainbow-y after all these pastels. #conflicted #fabricpull #fabricmakesmehappy #aghandcrafted #alisonglass #carolynfriedlander #friedlander #botanicsfabric #carkai #carkaifabric #sewmystash2018 #lovemystash #fabriclove #fabricstash #fabricaddict #saturdaysewing #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernfabric #lowvolume #lowvolumefabric #30minssewingdaily

AND I’M BACK:: After quite a few months I am finally back in my sewing room! We are delighted to be welcoming baby Jones #3 in November - a harvest baby nonetheless 🌾 morning sickness to the max has had me down and out but feeling grateful to come out of it now! Also grateful to not be nauseated by fabric and movement anymore 😂
When I saw this super cute apple core mini by @penandpaperpatterns I had to make one! 🍎✂️ and I really enjoyed it - such a fun make. My machine needs the doctor first but hopefully I can get it quilted and on my wall next week🤞🏼😀 I used favourites @carolynfriedlander #carkaifabric #carkai #euclidfabric along with @robertkaufman #essexlinen and @konacotton in #salmon and #snow #applecoreminiquilt #applecoremini #applecorequilt #modernquilt #modernquilter #flipandco #flipandcofarmhousestudio #makemodern

the finished top! I'm not sure if the borders were entirely successful? But I love it 😍I'll definitely be quilting this one as soon as I decide on a backing... #kingfisherstitchalong #kingfisherquilt #hexieflowers #applique #cottonandsteel #showmethemoda #aurifil #lottajansdotter #carolynfriedlander #carkai

Finally got around to taking some more shots of this #logcabinquilt from @sharonhollanddesigns #utilitystylequiltsforeverydayliving book. I’m pretty picky about buying books and patterns, and I really loved this one. This is a fifth anniversary gift for some dear friends. I used two @artgalleryfabrics #colormaster kits and supplemented with #rjrsolids and @carolynfriedlander #carkaifabric. Stole the palette from the prolific @astrangerview. #colormasterteal #colormasterwinterwheat #makenine2018 #quiltsinthewild #rjrfabrics #artgalleryfabrics #robertkaufman #robertkaufmanfabrics

I keep falling in love with @carolynfriedlander's fabric as I work on this pair of shorts. Trying out a different pattern, and I'm loving these back pockets!

Two new #pillowcases In the time it would have taken to buy in store, I made some with favorite fabric. #carkai I used the burrito method. Even with French seams, less than an hour. #sewingmystash #sewingmystashoff #usingwhatihave #hpk2018

Working my way through, row by row! More humps, vertical loops, triangles, loopty loops 😂🤔 and zig zags. I plan on doing all the grey background sections in straight lines with my walking foot. // #quilting #freemotionquilting #carkai #interlockquilt

Progress pics of my #crockerycupboardquilt from the @mybearpaw class I'm currently doing. I'm determined to conquer curved piecing this year , it's one of my goals from my @@quiltersplanner and this is definitely helping. Swipe for some close of my bowls and jugs!
More of my addiction to the gorgeous fabrics by @carolynfriedlander from her #Carkai #gleanedfabric #carolynfriedlander #friedlander and #doefabrics all with a background of #konasolids #konacharcoal
Pattern available through @threadhouseuk #threadhousepatterns and I bought these fabrics over time from @mybearpaw @sewhotuk and @celticfusionfabrics

A few more detailed pics of my #stargazertote. I love seeing close-ups and the inside of everyone else's bags so I thought I'd share mine too!
The black fabric is from @carolynfriedlander #Carkai range and I love the sneaky peak we get of this grafic fabric! Also the way the pattern stops just before the selvedge in the orange #gleanedfabric I decided to make this a feature of my slip pockets!

The #stargazertote pattern is by @bluecallapatterns which is the March @bagofthemonthclub

Oh look Celine @bluecallapatterns has shared the pics of my bag, her Clover Convertable bag from last years Bag of the Month Club, to highlight that the parretns available for anyone to buy on the Blue Calla Patterns website.

My #minimosaic tree from @shannonebrinkley book #ScrappyAppliqué. I love the process and already have my next two projects in the planning phase. I’m doing the #globe scrappyapplique and #aroundtheworld scrappy appliqué. Thanks @shannonebrinkley for such fun projects! My tree is made with #cottonandsteel, #carolynfriedlanderfabrics from her #Carkai collection, and a few #artgalleryfabrics.I hope to be quilting it this week and will update the photos.

Well you know I can’t not use @carolynfriedlander fabric so I’ll be making #cadencecourtquilt with my #gleanedfabric bundle with a #carkai substitute for the white! Can’t wait to get started!!

Finished this quilt top today for the newest little boy in my family. It came together so quickly using my #perfecthsts (link in profile). Pattern coming soon!

pillow number two.
the opportunity to complete a second pillow came sooner than expected, when we discovered a leak in our hot water heater and had to extend our stay at this campground, while derek fixed it all up. obviously, i went with wonky stars, my favorite go to quilt block.

I’ve been eyeing this bundle of #carkaifabric by @carolynfriedlander on Etsy for a long, long, long time. 💙💛💚🧡☺️And decided today that I just HAVE to buy it before someone else grabs it (it was the last one, the Carkai collection is hardly available anymore at all, and I just loved this bright and happy mix). I don’t usually buy bundles anymore, as I like to do the mixing of fabrics myself, but this one just jumped at me. #carolynfriedlander #carkai #fabricmakesmehappy #lastone #modernfabric #fabriclove #fabricstash #fabricaddict #modernquilter #freshmodernfabric #outofprintfabric #fabricnerd #fabricbundle

i made a pillow. finally.
we have been driving around the country with two pillow forms that i only have christmas covers for. i finally busted out some scraps and set up shop at the clubhouse to make us a non-christmas cover. hopefully, i can get the second one made in a more timely fashion.

The other day at our meeting, someone encouraged me to buy more of one of my favorite fabrics. THANKs. Just bought a few yards of Carkai by Carolyn Friedlander in Petunia.
I am trying not to buy stash that has no plans, but in this case, it touches my HEART. (Photo is fuzzy)/

One of the things I love about making quilts is I get to spend lots of time thinking about the person I am making it for while I am making it. This always leads me to be grateful for the many amazing people I am blessed to know, and this quilt for a friend’s first baby is no exception. I got to think about all the great times we spent together and how much I love her. And her baby gets a quilt. Win-win. 😂 Anyway, I am especially happy I forced myself to piece a backing because I love it more than the front. 😂 #carkaifabric #carkai

I caught the sewing bug. I'm supposed to be doing chores. #carolynfriedlander #carkai

Carolyn’s new collection ‘Gleaned’ is now in-store and online! This is a very vivid graphic group of prints inspired by nature, including some extras that have special selvedge treatments. They work seamlessly with her past collections #carkai and #architextures for a jazzy quilt, spring garb or mega interiors. ••• #carolynfriedlander #gleaned #cottonprint #dressmakingfabric #quiltingfabric #sewingshop #fabricshop #cottonfabric #printedcotton #inspiredbynature

I had jump and get the #sessomsquilt pattern by @carolynfriedlander once I saw @treadletothemetal post hers! I immediately fell in love 😍 now to figure out what to add and what gradient to use #sessomsquilt #carkai #robertkauffmanfabrics #carolynfriedlander #fpp #foundationpaperpiecing

I finally finished my #aerialquilt (pattern by @carolynfriedlander) just in time to gift it to my brother and SIL at Christmas (though it was a wedding present). Definitely hit some bumps along the way but pretty happy with how it turned out. It’s impossible to see in the pics, but I used three different colors for the straight-line quilting. Swipe for lots more!

Now that it has been gifted to @jo2owls I can post pics of my most recent make - a sewing machine mat. This is adapted from a pattern that was in @lovequiltingmag more than a year ago. I modified the pattern to make it a bit deeper and added an extra pocket at the end. Fabrics are all @carolynfriedlander #architextures and #friedlander with #carkai for binding. Can you spot the selvedges section? Happy birthday Jo xx. Ps excuse the dodgy lighting - I took the pics late last night after I finished it so I could gift it this morning!

#eadsquilt blocks: the Butterscotch (and Birthday) edition! 🎉 Only need to make about 12 more blocks for my Eads quilt top but I feel myself slowing because I don't want it to be over. Say it ain't so, @carolynfriedlander . 😉 I'm currently crushing so hard on the butterscotch colored #carkai print. Makes me want to have some butterscotch pudding, a glass of scotch, or buttery toffee or something. Or maybe I'm just hungry! 😜💗 #eadsqal #carolynfriedlander #carkaifabric #friedlanderfabric #annamariahorner #fibsandfablesfabric #foundationpaperpiecing #modernquilting #quiltblocks

Ta Da....my #sewcialbeesampler top is all assembled!!! 🍾🍾The quilting will have to wait for another day, but it feels good to see it all together. Thanks again to #sharonhollanddesigns and #maureencracknell for this really fun project. I used #Carkai #carkaifabric from @carolynfriedlander 😍😍😍

'Tis a sad night in the Meeker Manse this late evening as there has been an untimely demise. My poor bolt of #konacotton White has finally been extinguished. While 4.33 yards of the previously remaining 6.5 yards will be dedicated to my testing of a quilt I'll post more about tomorrow, the other 2.33 yards that were remaining will be used to complete 588 HSTs in a finished 4.5" size with all 42 #Carkai prints (about four charm packs worth) and three charm packs of #friedlander (with 42 squares in each, although there are some duplicate prints in those packs--but they're all soooo fabulous). The final quilt will be about 96" x 96" and will be for our bed--and will be a somewhat companion piece to the test pattern that I am insanely excited about! And yes, I'm a firm believer that there is no such thing as too much of a good thing in a single quilt! #needtoplaceanorderforanewboltsoon #robertkaufman #carolynfriedlander
