Sewing Room Update

I'm currently in love with hand quilting.  Every top I finish, I want to hand quilt it.  But seriously, I just 
don't have that much sit down time!  

Working on a quick and fun boy quilt cause my shop is almost empty and the boy quilts always go
 first.  I guess masculine quilts are just a bit scarce!

Thanks for your responses on my Granny Square blocks!  You are all SO right that I need to learn
 to crochet, and I will!  It's definitely on my list.  Maybe in January...


  1. Do you enjoy working with Perle Cotton (I assume that's what you're using in the tp photo)? I haven't had the chance to try it yet but it always looks so lovely when used on quilts.

  2. hello

    is the thread (pearl cotton)?
    i like valdani thread.
    sorry bad at english i am from germany ;)

    have a nice day

  3. I think boy quilts go so fast because its hard to just sit down and think of a really great quilt pattern for them. Also, fabric choices are difficult . Little girls are much easier! I could make a cute pink fluffy girl quilt in no time at all. Im still looking for the pattern you showed on a previous quilt. I bought the fabrics and cant wait to get started on my own little boy a quilt.

  4. Your hand stitching adds so much to your quilts. I have yet to delve into the hand stitching because my couch or sitting time is for knitting usually. However, I love the look and want to try it someday.

  5. I love the colors in that boy quilt - so understated!

  6. Love your quilting - I have caught the craze, too!

  7. CLEVER! I just love handmade, and I do what I can, but I can't sew. I will have to start watching you closely. Maybe I might learn something. Inspiring-Belinda

  8. I've never hand quilted a quilt. How do you do it? I wonder if I can find any tutorials out there....

    1. I'm sure there are lots of tutorials, but I like Anna Maria Horner's!
