Rolie Polie Raggedy Skirt Tutorial

Skirts are the easiest thing to design and sew.  If ever I want to boost my sewing confidence I make a skirt.  That is how this tutorial for the Rolie Polie Raggedy Skirt came to be…I needed a confidence booster. :)  I love the edges of the rolie polie strips.  They are pinked and will not fray to badly, but will look really cool and country if sewn like a rag quilt.  So I sewed the edges outward and it turned out so cute.  Make sure to pin it to your “Sew Easy” boards.  This is a simple and fun ... ...read more

Fabric requirements for our Mystery quilt

14 Jan 2013

       We have had a lot of questions about fabric requirements for our Mystery Quilt.  Plan on 1 1/2 yards of a white or a light colored fabric for the background of the quilt blocks. But the actual fabric requirements for each block will be given month by month.  We will be using a lot of basics, which should always be available.  Thanks for asking!!!

FYI: Good question about why we are only having 9 blocks this year instead of 12. We debated and decided to have 9 blocks, so that we would be done with our quilts by September ...

Project Design Team Wednesday~ I M Happy

26 Dec 2012


    Last week I was in a department store when I witnessed a mini tamper tantrum from a very spirited 3 year old. Her Mumm scolded her firmly but gently... "Emma, be happy, it's Christmas"   Well wee Emma, stomped her feet, and with such a frown,  bellowed out  " I M Happy"...   All of us that witnessed this outburst -smiled at the Mumm We all were quite familiar with these moments !

Who is still working like mad to get their sewing projects done for Christmas? Here is my pile of fabric and I have a 3 days.

I also just finished last night my advent calendar I know ... ...read more
