I wanted to share a few tidbits with you today. They’re small things from my week that, when grouped together, make enough for a blog post. We’ll call them A Quilter’s Miscellany.
1. I finished this quilt for my son’s birthday next week. It’s Modern Maze from one of our sister publications, McCall’s Quick Quilts.
I got the fabrics at my LQS* but there is a kit available from quiltandsewshop. You can definitely see the difference between my rather homely shot and their professional image!
*Local Quilt Shop
I used my quick quilt label method, for which you’ll find a tutorial here. Really easy and comes out looking good!
2. On etsy.com last week, I stumbled onto this little pincushion.
And if that wasn’t enough, the little feet are hand painted to coordinate with the fabric! This is one of my all-time favorite purchases. I’m not sure I’ll ever stick pins in it because it looks so wonderful just relaxing in my studio.
You’ll find similar items from the maker, Nicole, in her etsy shop, FrankieWaffles.
3. I also got this pink and green quilt back from my quilter (still needs binding).
I made it years ago when I fell in love with the holly fabric—because my only daughter’s name is Holly. Looking at it now, I can see things I would have done differently.
My favorite part may be the backing, a Jane Sassaman print I adore. By the way, Holly was a teenager when she said that, and now she is 27, and she will be horrified at the sound of herself. Thank goodness they grow up.
And that’s a bit of Quilter’s Miscellany.
