Emma leaves for college on Tuesday. I was searching for a quilt design to make for her, and decided @elizabethagh 's #thekittens was the perfect one. #graciestocker , our cat and Emma's favorite non-human, was recently diagnosed with cancer, and we aren't sure how much longer she'll be with us. Now her sweet little face is in Emma's quilt and headed to school. How I love those two. --

My favorite inanimate object, Mary Ruth, my @jukihomesewing machine got to freemotion some more feathers today. I really love stitching feathers!!

I loved making the original Handstitched Project from my book, and made a second one once I'd met all my deadlines. There's something so satisfying about all those super sharp corners you get with English Paper Piecing. And I always need more slow stitching in my life. I hope you'll join us for the #wisecraftstitchalong starting in September. Absolute beginners totally welcome! 📷 by @dsquilts -

Making more miniquilts is a great excuse to practice more freemotion feathers! Now that I have broken through the mental feather barrier, I don't want to forget how to do them! As always, stitched with @aurifilthread -

Its too hot for big quilts, so I've turned to the mini. This one was so fun to make, with @dsquilts #modernsolids and @riflepaperco #wonderlandfabric collection for @cottonandsteel . Its the first time I've used a lot of fabric with metallic gold, it was fun! As always, stitched with @aurifilthread 50 wt thread. Made as a sample for my new online course #dreamlearnquilt coming in September.
