I’ll be having my first solo exhibit in several years this January @divisible.projects in Dayton. Jan 7-23. Thanks to my fab friends @jeffreycortlandjones and @heatherjonesstudio Excited for it, and to see these at massive scale is a lot different than on screen!

My two latest crystals, Fire Quartz and Amethyst from #amybutlerdesign Love them!

#positivity #balance

Kinda took me awhile to get this binding on ..
But I’m so happy with the stripe

And everybody ... you should go make this quilt, or one that’s just plain ole patchwork. It’s so freeing and it brings so much joy!
The fabric does ALL the work for you.
And take a look at that lime green thread @tracecreekquilting used on that fabulous quilting! 💚

Guys.... #quilting is actually happening!
I had grand plans to get up this morning and go hiking and instead slept in WAY later than I have in years.

I was physically in the office this last week and it drained me, so I decided a quieter day was in order. That means a content afternoon in the #sewingroom Hoping to finish the #longarmquilting on this #jumbostar #quilt today!
I can always hike tomorrow right?!

Do you piece your backings?
I rarely do. I just can’t be bothered with it.

This time, however, I still had so much of those fat quarters left hanging around, I just wanted to use them up.
So, some quick strip piecing, a look through my tubs to discover fabric I didn’t even know I had .. 😆 .. and vu-wella! A pretty cool backing.
And ... do my feet look dirty in these photos???
I promise THEY ARE NOT! It’s just my Birkenstock tan!
Kinda like a Farmers tan, ya know!

Joy, joy, joy, joy 🎶
Down in my heart, down in my heart 🎶

That was every moment I worked on this quilt.
From the cutting (not a favorite of mine), to the layout (the MOST fun!), to the web/chain piecing, even the pressing was a joy!
Seriously, folks, if you haven’t made one of these, hop on the bandwagon! I promise you JOY! I even upsized mine to a twin size to welcome those to my guest bed.
One of my quickest makes too! I had so much fun with this, I may make another throw size to cuddle up with!
I still have a lot of that original FQ bundle left over, so I guess I’ll put together a pieced backing before I send it off to @tracecreekquilting to do her magic!

Quilting texture is one of my favorite things about a finished quilt.

I usually don't do "fancy" #freemotionquiltingonadomestic but I think this will be ok 👌.

ALRIGHT, this is wayyyyyy better than just ok 😍😍

This quilt pattern is #floralbouquetquilt from the ladies @thequiltroom and is made using a jelly roll strips in @amybutlerdesign fabric.

I finished this quilt top in Oct. 2020. It is in my to-be-quilted bucket. The lighting in the room was not real balanced for better photos. The detail of full view shows up much better in person and has a softer look. The colors are pretty close. The border ends were not trimmed yet. It was a fun one to make!

Stayed up late to sew after yesterday's heat. My late night sewing sesh results?

A pair of comfy lounge pants from my favourite #amybutlerdesign pattern sewn from this summer loving, vintage vibe #erinmcmorris fabric!

With moving 2x a year, I have been sewing french seams or a basic overcast seam with my sewing machine, on the few garments I have sewn in the past three years, even though I have and love using my serger. This summer, I brought my serger out of storage and boy, I had forgotten how wonderful it is!

Finally got around to making my first Cabo Halter (though I’ve had this Amy Butler pattern for YEARS) this weekend.

As long as I don’t have to worry about skirt length, her clothing patterns really do fit me well. @amybutlerdesign #amybutlerdesign #amybutlerpatterns #cabohalter #memadewardrobe #garmentsewing

Update on my #alexandriaquilt
After stitching four jewel flowers in completely the wrong place and having to unpick them, I’m back on track with sewing the next round on my quilt.

I’m loving how these aqua flowers pop! 🤩

Just a collection of #zippypouches I can’t get enough of making these.

The tiny one is at 60% of the original. My 2yo wanted one like mummy so she picked everything. Even the Star pull. She’s pretty clever 💜

Finished this sweet little dress last night. When I showed it to Peaches she exclaimed "I love it!" When I asked if she wanted to try it on she supplied a matter of fact "No." and ran away.

😂

I like how this turned out, but foresee actually writing a blog post about this one (lol she says now). I would've had a really hard time with this pattern if I didn't already know a lot about sewing.

Also: IT HAS POCKETS

Pattern: @duchessandhare Off The Cuff Dress, size 3
Fabric: @amybutlerdesign cotton voile, "Josephine's Bouquet"

I have a plan; the initial 'E' wil be made up of 5"/12.5cm squares, the rest will just be 10"/25cm

squares, so I did a fabric pull to see what I could find that would work nicely with the gorgeous fabrics from @surface_art - so far I have #modafabrics #amybutlerdesign #tulapink #Katespainfabric & a cut finger where I sliced mysef. Time for breakfast & maybe get out of the pj's. #Quiltersofinstagram #Fabriccollectorsofinstagram #Birthdayquilts

Finished my beautiful Deltille quilt from @runningstitchquilts Pattern release early June so get ready to snatch it up.

Whether doing a scrappy, an ombré or a modern 2 colour quilt this pattern always creates an impression.
Could keep looking at these glorious Amy Butler @freespiritfabrics prints all day.

Today’s Me Made from my parent’s entryway. I mean, it only fits.

I started this month with a tour of my place, and now I’m doing shots from my parents. That being said, ANOTHER Barcelona skirt that I love. This pic was after a day of online hustles and grading.

And, if you want to know what it's like with the love of my life, I give you a capture of Bourbon. Today. Everyday. Dude.

And today's lupus report: some wive's tales work. Some are skunk. Soaking raisins in rum to help with arthritis and joint pain: bah. Use those for raisin rum bread if you must. Or toss the raisins and drink the damn rum. I prefer it with juice and lime, but that's just me. However, science shows that reducing your meat consumption reduces inflammatory flares—food for thought (and see what I did there? I'm so proud).

Just Fabric but it’s classic Amy Butler from my stash. Cheery on a very wet Thursday.

#amybutlerfabric #fabrichordersclub #amybutlerdesign #emeclothandyarn #emecloth #sewing #memade

A sunshine-filled, shadowy pic from today’s Me Made.

Another Barcelona, this one NOT a big as yesterday. It’s two years old and a keeper (needs a smidge taken in)—my mended tote I love. Perhaps I should have straightened my shirt, but when I got a pic, I took it. It’s a comfortable look. Look close, you’ll see my leopard shoes, and my hat is a 20 dollar buy from a corner vendor in Chelsea.

Here, I was on a walk between my second and third appointment of the day. Today was a day that did NOT make me want to throat punch my doctors. Also, to cause of my abdominal pain has been diagnosed as the most probable cause. So, that’s going to be fixed soon. Oh, yeah, kicking my IUD to the curb (for now). Chacha. It shouldn’t have taken a couple of years to be heard on that one.

Today’s Lupus note isn’t on lupus as much as advocacy. Unfortunately, most days—and most times—I’m my support system. I have one friend who knows more than the rest and one that knew a lot, but she’s removed herself from my life—and I long learned to not rely on others. That being said, patients shouldn’t have to lose their cookies, beg, plead, and cry to be heard. Sexism and the abysmal American healthcare system are at fault. But, when you find a good doctor, keep the mo-fo like a woman keeps her “good bra.”
