Are you ready to sew??? This week we are going to sew up all the half square triangles, and then next week we will assemble the tops! I know I’ve broken it up to only one step a week, but this quilt, though aesthetically complex is such a breeze to sew together. I hope you […]

    Thanks for the tips. The pattern was a little confusing as it’s written. Thankfully I’m using only two main colors and won’t have to math too much.ReplyCancel

It’s finally time for us to begin the Shift-a-long! We have a few things to go over today, including the big giveaway from our sponsors and this week’s assignment.  But first things first!! Do you have your pattern? If not you can get your hands on it a few different ways. Alison Glass is running […]

    Meredith,
    The First thing I opened this morning, while the house is still quiet, was a Newsletter from Hawthorne Thread. They are one of my all time Favorites and have never been disappointed with anything I have found or purchased. I was absolutely the happiest person around! There they were, your “Shifting Beauties”! I have been trying to try some patterns that I have never tried before, and what better time than now! I have some very special people in my Family, Actually…lol…all of them, that I want to have something special! I get so busy making gifts for other’s or gifts that family member’s want for others, that they have received the short end. They, of all people deserve my best, full of Love and Hope for a wonderful, well, everything! Life doesn’t always comply with such wishes, and if I’m not there in person to give Hugs, they should have a part of me to Wrap Them in a Hug! I can’t wait to get started. I’m warming up my stiff fingers and will be ready to go! Thank you for bringing something a bit fresh and different, for me and those I deeply love!ReplyCancel

    • Your comment is such an encouragement. Yes! Family are the most important, but it’s easy to deprioritize those who we feel we “have time” time to make for. I think you’ll love this pattern, and it’s a quick sew too! :) ReplyCancel

If you follow me on Instagram (thefooshe) you know this post is beyond overdue. I used the Shift quilt pattern (written by Alison Glass and I) to make a queen size quilt for my sister out of Anna Maria and Julia Horner’s fabrics. I backed it in one of my all time favorite AMH prints, […]

Did anyone wonder what happened to me? I have spent every spare moment working on a commissioned queen size quilt for one of my most favorite clients! She had a vision of a bold, Anthro-esque quilt. We went back and forth on the fabrics and decided on our palette. She has excellent taste! The quilt […]
