How do you cheer yourself up in the gloom of winter!? Of course playing with fabric is high on my list! Unfortunately my sewing space is cold right now and hard to get motivated/dressed in enough layers to be there as much as I would like to! Yesterday while working at the computer, I pulled out my hot pink polish and swiped on a couple coats between emails! I smile when I see it! My ring was a Christmas gift from my husband by @meganauman - it makes me smile too! #smile We won’t talk about the extra workout I got digging my car out of a pile of snow....😉 stay warm friends!
I’ve admittedly spent a lot of time on the computer this month so far. But I had so much fun stitching up this adorable Cottage block yesterday 😍 Pattern is available in the Sew Hometown desk calendar by @inspiringstitches
Is finishing lots of quilts on your list this year? I too have a couple on my list that need to be be finished! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm here to help! I've opened up more deposits for machine quilting in my shop, and I'm ready to get your quilt quilted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Scroll for a few of the quilting options that have been favorites lately. More details over in the shop. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #machinequilting#modernquilt#modernquilting
Finished quilt alert 😍 — I can share the quilt I made for the current issue of @curatedquilts now! Our new issue focus’ on House quilts, and I patterned “Passage” to be included. I was thinking of a gate when I landed on this design, so it relates to a house, but isn’t super literal either. Win-win! The color palette is a fun mix of @konacotton including a long-time favorite Cerise, and the new Wasabi among others. I quilted this with a large X pattern that compliments the simple piecing. If you look back to late October there’s a few glimpses of the quilt in progress. #curatedquilts#modernquilting#modernquilt#quiltpattern#quilting
As the year comes to a close, I’m excited about all the great things that happened in 2018, and looking forward to what’s in store for 2019. Lots of sewing, lots work for @curatedquilts and @inspiringstitches, and more sewing! I’ve marked down my 2018 best-selling patterns to $6 for the week, and I have a new e-book too! Getting Started in Improv Quilting…even if you don’t know where to begin, releases tomorrow! I working on a mini challenge to get our creative improv juices flowing, look for that in a couple of weeks. Thank you all for a fantastic 2018, Happy New Year and many blessings - Amy

Sunday sewing - these simple blocks are so nice to relax with. #waterfallqal when I made the first quilts, they were bigger (more blocks) and I had a hard deadline for finishing. This time around, I’m savoring each seam.
