I’m home from a lovely trip to WA and back to laundry, cranky children, and a car that is in desperate need if vacuuming.  Coming home from vacation is the worst part of vacation.  :)  I managed to get these photos edited….this quilt is my favorite yet (I always say that). 

The fabric is from this fat quarter stack at The Fat Quarter Shop.  The pattern is called Seville (big surprise) and is available in my own shop in hard copy or PDF, and at The Fat Quarter Shop here.   This pattern in is full color….all of mine from now on will be. 

The pattern uses 10 fat quarters plus white fabric and a border.  I wouldn’t call it a hard pattern because the blocks go together very quickly and easily, but you do have to have some experience seam matching and pinning when your sewing the quilt together. 
I sure do love this quilt!   Now back to cleaning up spilled Frosted Flakes in my carpet….

Coming to a close




I love the end of summer. By the end of the summer I’m ready for some routine, schedules, cooler weather and warmer food. I’ve hardly touched the sewing machine in 2 weeks….I guess I needed a break from sewing.
Instead I’ve been sitting around watching my kids play and eating zucchini in truckloads….since we have literally truck loads.


I did manage to get Bizzy Kid into a hard copy….it’s so nice to cross that off the list. It only took me 3 months. :)


Thank you for all your kind words on my Seville quilt. I’ll get the finished quilt pictures edited and posted this week. More on that quilt later….

From a stack

I love how a stack of this…

can be transformed into this:

It’s amazing how much I like cutting up fabric and sewing it back together again.   This one was inspired by a photo of tile in Sevilla, Spain….where I met my husband.  :)  The fabric stack above is from my fat quarter bundle at the Fat Quarter Shop.
