First up, I've updated + reorganized my sewing space -- it's amazing what a few Ikea tables can do. The new configuration + this mini quilt wall have me super excited to create!
The fabric stash needed a little organization too! I've decided to store all of my fabric in plastic totes (with wheels!) and am really enjoying how easy they are to access + store.
I've also been designing a few new quilts! Even though my updated studio configuration includes a new computer + design software, I still <3 pretty colored pencils and graph paper.
Fresh fall air has officially arrived in Iowa and I (Jeter, too!) couldn't be happier. Crisp cool mornings = <3. It makes for the perfect dog walking weather!
Speaking of fall -- I whipped up this scrappy patchwork pumpkin the other night. <3
I shared this Clover seam ripper last week on Instagram & Facebook and couldn't believe how many people had never heard of it! This is honestly the best seam ripper and it's less than $10 -- Fat Quarter Shop sells them here.
I had the best Saturday morning this past weekend teaching a kids pillowcase class at my LQS. Four little girls (all under the age of 13) took my class and after just 2 hours they were begging their mom's for sewing machines. Talk about making my heart sing!
Head shots, head shots, head shots! :)
Here's some super exciting news -- this is the first time my name has been in print! As of right now all I have is this digital copy of Simply Handmade, but when the hard copy comes I'll be sure to share more details!
