Not much sewing going on here these days (okay more like the past year). However, I’ve been enjoying seeing my window boxes flourish this year. Crazy difference from 3 weeks ago. #jessicaswindowboxes

Super excited about my flower garden this year. I think I’ve watched every video on @gardenanswer YouTube page and I still have no clue what I’m doing. I did learn about #supertunia flowers and am excitedly see them grow. #jessicaswindowboxes #provenwinners #greenthumbgreenie

I’m late to the party.... I don’t think I’ve ever officially introduced myself on here. 👋🏻 I’m Jessica. I’ve been sewing since 2013 off and on. I wish I were sewing more but right now I’m going to school full time to get a bachelors in Computer Information 🤓🤓, working and raising a family. I do hop on and love over everyone’s sewing projects. I’m a sucker for candy, drives in the mountains and of course fabric! #igquiltfest

I’ve sewn something. #itisamiracle. This was supposed to be a valentines quilt for this year but I’m calling it a advanced start for next years valentines. Inspired by @abrightcorner beautiful one she made. Also, what are your favorite cutting mats? I need a new one and I really want to get a 24x36 size mat.

This fall has been so crazy with no time to sew. I decided to go back to school after not attending school at all since high school. Going back to school in my 30’s to get a degree, while raising a family and working is not an easy task. Add going back to school FULL-TIME with 5 classes was almost ludicrous but I did it. I worked my butt off and by a hair, squeaked by with a 4.0 GPA. This will probably be my only 4.0 in college I will ever get because I can imagine things will only be getting harder. It’s finally winter break and I finally stepped foot into my sewing room and dusted of my sewing machine. I have no clue what to make but I want an all reds quilt. Throw some ideas my way. #bonnieandcamille

Christmas is going up early this year. I’m loving these felt balls from @gracieandmarie. Not sure what I’m going to do with the garland just yet but I’m so excited to add this to my Christmas decor.

Anyone have a bolt of either one of these prints? Prices? #bonnieandcamille #thegreatfabricdestash

Wow, I cannot believe it’s been a year since I made this. I was really hoping to make another one this year since I picked up a second Christmas tree but with the announcement of #bonnieandcamille new Christmas fabric line, I am SOO excited to make one next spring. For those of you who can’t wait, check out my free tutorial on my blog to make this tree skirt. #showmethemoda #thimbleblossoms #minidwell #winterwonderlandtreeskirt #wonkyskinnytree

I just picked up my #starsandstripesquilt this week from @kwilter100. Yay! I finished this top at retreat earlier this year and coincidentally I get it back from the quilter when #stitchsupplyretreat is happening again. Wish I could of gone this fall but I’ll just be drooling over everyone’s finishes from home. Can’t wait for my sewing machine to get over her temper tantrum so I can bind this beauty. My son told me this is his most favorite quilt. He said “Mom, I love your American of the flag quilt.” 😂 🇺🇸 #thimbleblossoms #bonnieandcamille

Sometimes I wonder how in the heck I deserve such kindness from others. Got a sweet surprise in the mail today from @hollyandolivequilts and I had to share. Debi, you are awesome 😭😍😘.

I am so excited to finally be sharing this with you all. I've been wanting to make a #dresdenplate quilt for years and I finally was able to check it off my to-do list. Thank you so much @modabakeshop for the opportunity to share with you all how to make this quilt on their blog. This quilt was made with @thimbleblossoms and @bonniecottonway #bonnieandcamille fabric lines; which I'm obsessed with. I made a scrappy version with various fabric lines but my tutorial will show you how you can make this all with a layer cake. I hope you guys enjoy it. If you guys decide to make one yourself tag me and use #dresdenirishchainquilt, I'd love to see your quilts. Also, check out the quilting by @mollylovelythreads 😍😍😍😍😍 #showmethemoda

Since my sewing machine just pooped out on me, there will be a lot of these going on in my future. #carpoollanehexies
