I've been absent for a while again. As usual, lots going on. I finally got  my sewing mojo back, but now I caught the kids' cold. Ugh.

In any case, I've completed a few blocks this past week, met Tula Pink and am finishing up organizing my very own craft room!

My local guild's bee blocks are finished, I'm all caught up. Both very fun blocks to make.

Lots going on in the Milwaukee area, my LQS hosted Tula Pink for a talk about her design process and a trunk show. It was very inspiring and she is soooooo funny. She has a new book coming out soon, 100 Modern Quilt Blocks and the quilts she showed were awesome. I'm definitely buying that book, you all know how I like a good sampler quilt.

We finished another room in the basement to get ready for baby #3 and to give me my own space for crafting. It's awesome! I'm still putting a few boxes away and I have some larger fabric pieces to put on cardboard, but otherwise it's done. It's so great to be able to see my stash and to just leave a project out that I'm working on. The design wall was probably the best addition to my sewing endeavors. I can't wait to really start laying out quilts on it! I've been in my new room sewing up a storm.

So I can't really show you those quilt blocks yet, my current project is a pattern that's going to be published in Lee's new book. Once she gives me the ok, I'll be able to show you pics.

I'm linking up!


  1. I love your polaroid block. I have this block on my "to do" list and your fabulous block has made me move it to the top of the list.

  2. I like the polariod block. very cute. I might have to use that for my stack of heather ross fabrics

  3. Love the new craft room! My sewing space is in the basement too. You're making me want a design wall now!
