Today, Layla and I took some time out to do some responsibility-free, no strings attached sewing. I’ve been working so hard to supplement the income just so we can scrape by, that I’ve not given much time to sewing just for fun. Not that any sewing isn’t fun, because I LOVE every bit of it. But […]

    That’s beautiful! She is so talented and has a great eye for arranging colors just like mama. Such special memories you’re making with her! Can’t wait to sew with my girls when they get old enough!ReplyCancel

  • My girl is the same way about soft things. I can highly recommend a minky or flannel backing for a happy customer!ReplyCancel

  • Donna Lee

    Wonderful! You both should be proud! That is a lot of sewing for both of you and I can imagine took patience on both your parts. She will remember this forever, even when the quilt has been loved to pieces.ReplyCancel

  • What a great way to spend some time together. It is a beautiful quilt and I am sure she will cherish it for a long time along with the memories of making it.ReplyCancel

I have been waiting to write this blog post for a while now! I’m so excited. Janome reached out to me two months ago to see if I would like to try out their new M100 machine, which is Anna Maria Horner’s limited edition machine. Without any hesitation, I agreed! I’ve been using Janome machines […]

    Hi, thanks for the review! I have a question about this machine. I know it comes with a 1/4 inch foot and I know you can move the needle to the right from the 3.5 center position to a 4. Does that give you a good scant 1/4 inch seam or does the needle move a bit too much? I tested one today and didn’t have a ruler to measure that scant seam. I love the thread cutter!ReplyCancel

    • @christine.higgins hi there! So I am obsessed with this machine. I get a perfect 1/4″ on the machine. I do not use the 1/4″ foot- I actually use the A foot on 3.5 position or the walking foot on 4 or 4.5″. The tension on the machine is perfect every single time I use it. If I can answer any other questions please feel free to ask. ReplyCancel

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 […]

    I found your quilt along through the Hawthorne Thread Newsletter. I love this pattern and the many many possibilities that come with color selection. I look forward to completing this with you!ReplyCancel

  • Margaret Halfpenny

    Beautiful assortment of fabrics and darling quilt pattern. Color possibilities are endless.ReplyCancel

  • Kirsten

    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, […]
