Fabric Chess Board

Fabric Chess Board

Using birthday money my parents gave me, I ordered my first set of chess pieces. They are lovely and are weighted & sized for competition (not that I will ever be a good enough chess player to compete!). I did not order a board because I wanted to make my own out of some of … Continue reading

Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition 2014

You may recall my inability to actually get my entry done in time for the previous two years for the Umbrella Prints Trimmings Competition. Well, sir, that isn’t happening again this year!

Herringbone Quilt Block Sewalong

For the sewalong, I picked my fabrics and then cut them into strips on Saturday. I cut 28 strips because I want to make at least two blocks (I never feel like I actually know how to make something unless I have made it twice. First time could have been a fluke). I am using … Continue reading
