Grab one of these and you can make any place your tea corner. The “sweetener” is how quick they are to make. Next time you’re invited for tea (or coffee) bring a stack of these as a gift ‒ and look for the smile you’ll get in return.

Are you ready to start your Sunrise Baby Quilt? (As if we hadn’t already heard from many of you who are chomping at the bit!) This week we’ll focus on choosing fabrics. One of the striking features of this quilt – and a characteristic of Modern Quilting in general – is the use of solid colors.

I wanted to be a movie star when I was five. Life didn’t turn out exactly as I planned, so rather than strutting-my-stuff on the red carpet, I get to write about my favorite fashion trends at this year’s Oscars. (The five year old in me is still waiting to be discovered, *wink*)

I love my serger. I wouldn’t get nearly as much sewing done if it weren’t for this little workhorse. Honestly, for the last year or so my sewing machine has been an “accessory” for my serger, not the other way around! I’ve collected links to some of my favorite serger projects and tutorials. Serge on!

I’ve stitched together a lot of different projects from garments and wearable art to accessories and stuffed toys – but never really gave quilting a try. In fact, if you had asked me a few years ago if I made quilts my answer would have been, “Quilts? Are you crazy, I am not a quilter!”
