It's week two of spring break so the kiddo and I got to spend some time with @seorlandodaysforgirls today. More in stories. So proud of this group and what they accomplish to help give school days to girls in Malawi. 🧑 #daysforgirlsinternational #sewingforacause #sewingismysuperpower

A philosophical LOL for the teacher's aide who taught my son to read an analog clock. #10pillowsfor10teachers #improvpiecing #improvletters #alberteinsteinquote #timeisbutanillusion

I didn't get to sew today...yet...but happy #internationalquiltingday !! The paper pieced surfboards are done. Needs some tweaking, yes, but hey! Not bad for my second attempt at my own pattern I think. #paperpiecing #adventuresinpaperpiecinganddesign #designwall #paperpiecedsurfboards #10pillowsfor10teachers

My little sweetie always picks me flowers. #azaela #springbreak #loveorlando

Well, wouldn't you expect the yarn would be detected from across the house. Photoshooting samples for an upcoming kids fiber art class, but #kittyphotobomb. #spiritthecat #kidsfiberart #kidsartclass

And now, I'm cutting into one of my own #paperpiecing designs since @nohatsquilts excellent book showed me how. πŸ™‚πŸ€™πŸ„β€β™€οΈ #10pillowsfor10teachers

When I renewed my @quiltalliance membership in February, a happy side benefit was a free @latifahsaafirstudios pattern. Then I saw the #kicksquilt pattern and I had the perfect thing for my son's gym teacher (I'm making #10pillowsfor10teachers, it's such a big project I had to give it a hashtag). But anyway, I know I'm late to the party but Latifah your patterns are fantastic! I so appreciate the little corner cut outs so I know how to line up the pieces when joining the sections. And the designs are so wonderful. I am a fan. πŸ‘ŸπŸ‘ŸπŸ‘Ÿ#paperpiecing #quiltalliance

Seeing all the #igquiltfest posts, I remembered that I had posted this a year ago for the prompt. And it's timely too, becauae I wanted to spread the word that @whollyjeanne is looking for piecers and quilters to help bring this project across the finish line. She reached her goal of collecting 70,273 pairs of red Xs, but many of those individually donated blocks need to be made into a quilt. Quilters, if you're willing and able, reach out to her and she'll send you a kit. They are smallish quilts and a rewarding finish. (P.S. this is a Middling quilt, a different type of quilt for the project. The kits are comprised of three sizes of blocks, all ready to piece)❌❌ #Repost @cera.bee (@get_repost)

#igquiltfest Finally Finished. When I started quilting, the whole process seemed so daunting. @nebraskagal51 suggested I start by making isolette covers to donate to the local NICU. Those were were the perfect size and helped motivate me with quick completions. Now hand sewing, let alone hand quilting, still seems a bit daunting. I made this little piece for #the70273project, you can read about it below, and after finishing it I do feel like I can go bigger and that hand sewing actually goes quicker than I made it out to be. And I like it. But it did take a bit to make 1,232 Xs. But very worthwhile.

This middling quilt for #the70273project comes from my heart...and my old t-shirts. I wanted to experiment with the raw edges of the Jersey knit after reading about the #alabamachanin style. It's presented with the seams exposed and quilted with embroidery floss in the form of pairs of Xs. All that's left to do is the hanging sleeve and I'm looking to @whollyjeanne to add a label. Six hundred and sixteen (616) people commemorated here. ❌❌

Isn't this the perfect bracelet for a sewist? #wristruler @ilvhndls @paula.kenne 😘

A happy pile of bright colors coming back from being loaned to #orlandomqg exhibits, and some cherished words from the incoming board to the outgoing one. #aquiltersstilllife #tealnumber2 #planetsminiquilt #showmeyourmqg

We might be looking at the last couple days to wear sweaters in Florida for a while...#seamworkoslo #seamworkmag #orlandosews
