Back to Work

Well, my long, wonderful spring break has come to an end…sigh. If you’ve just recently started reading my blog, don’t think I’m amazing because of how fast I’ve been cranking out quilts. It’s because I literally slept and sewed ALL break. I’ll still be doing quite a bit of sewing because I’m getting ready for the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange in June and just applied for another smaller show in the beginning of May. (Wish me luck!)

I am so excited for the Handicraft show. Look! There I am!

Also, I had a HUGE spike in my views on here and flickr. A friend informed me that Jeni of In Color Order had linked to my banner quilt on her blog. She also linked one of my sewing buddies, elle square. I am honored to be on her blog. I love all of her work.

I am totally eating up all of the love my quilts have been getting. I am so proud of my work and it’s always so nice to know others like it too! I am also really happy to announce that the Best in Show pattern is now available in my shop. If you are in Indianapolis, you can also purchase a paper pattern at Crimson Tate.

Thanks for the love everyone. I’ll try to keep updating often, just maybe with fewer projects now that I’m back to my day job.

New Quilts

Did I mention I’ve been sewing non-stop? So as promised here are the new quilts that are or are soon to be for sale in my shop.

I originally made this one for myself and still really like it so I am not sure if I am going to sell it or not, but I figured it needed a good photograph anyway.

And finally is the banner quilt I have been working on. After finishing it up, which I wasn’t too pleased with, I decided it was all wrong. It’s too narrow and long. I’m still planning on selling it if anyone is interested in it, but I don’t think it’s my best work. I totally redid the quilt and love the new one. I’ll share that one in my next post.

More soon.

Bowtie Quilt

I adore this quilt.

It was made with the same pieces as these quilts.

I love that you can make so many different styles from basically the same pieces.

This was the first quilt I made my own binding for. It’s a light blue polka dot. It makes me so happy! I even made some tags for my quilts. This one is available in my shop too.

New Etsy Shop now open!

It’s been a little quiet on here recently, but that’s because I have been working on opening my new Etsy shop. It’s a mix of vintage books turned notebooks, vintage ephemera paper, and sewn accessories as well. Take a look, I hope you like it.
