Shelfie Tuesday 10.6

06 Oct 2015


#ShelfieTuesday just might be our favorite day of the week! We share what's on our shelves and you share yours. It has been so much fun getting a peak at everyone's fabric stash. This week, we decided it was time to organize our very bulky jersey knits. Our amazing intern, Maddie, spent the day folding and rolling and shelving these lovely, yet slightly uncooperative fabrics! Way to go, Maddie!

TBT Modern: Pieced Star

01 Oct 2015


If you have been following along with Bonnie's Traditional Block Thursday tutorials, you will have mastered the half square triangle and flying geese techniques. In Bonnie's latest tutorial, the Pieced Star, she combines both techniques to make this beautiful star block. For my modern version of Bonnie's block, I opted to use Riley Blake Olive and Pale Green solids.  This was the most challenging block I have made so far. The individual pieces were easy to create, but lining up the points and seams required some patience. They didn't turn out absolutely perfect, but I'm ... more
