Time to quilt sandwich. I was inspired by this JCrew sweater pictured next to my quilt top. I just love this one, super simple but yet striking due to color choice. I'll probably post a quick tutorial on the process with measurements and color cards. But don't hold your breathe πŸ˜‚ Ya know? Every time I try to finish something an event happens and I'm sidetracked. It's like Crafter ADHD. πŸ˜‚All solids except pink are #konasolids , flouro pink is #michaelmillerfabrics , and #essexlinen for the background.

Hi πŸ‘‹πŸ» off to work with my Barbies today! Perfectly transported in my #hhessentialstote made with @cottonandsteel canvas. I wish I had a pink car like Barbie's! πŸ˜‚ The PDF pattern for this tote is in my shop as well as the printed booklet -- via snail mail. Have a happy day!❀️. #hungryhippiesews #makewhatyouwant #sewingblog #sewingpattern #bagmaker #ilovetosew #sewingcraft #isewbags #fabricstash

Making progress on my giant pinwheels quilt today , using the always gorgeous @jenniferpaganelli fabric line. It's going to be allllllll JP! ❀️❀️❀️ I just love the vintage-y floral vibe. Pure bliss: coffee morning, sewing, kids playing without fightingπŸ˜‚, and an overcast sky with bits of sunshine- just enough for a sunny outlook but not too much so we melt .... πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸŒπŸŒˆπŸŒ #quiltblock #jenniferpaganelli #floralprint #livecreatively #sewinglife #quiltinglove #makewhatyouwant #fabricstash #pinwheels #summerquilt

Scroll for views❀️ Another quilt finish that I'm super happy about. Random 3.5" squares from my scrap bin thrown together in that 70's way that I adore. Bound with scrappy binding, quilted on a long arm by my friend Kathy Tally --because this baby is hugenormous. πŸ˜„πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• I'm never wrestling a big quilt on my domestic machine again. Ever. πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ» #dowhatyoulove #quiltsofinstagram #quiltlife #scrappy #usewhatyougot #scrapquilt #sewingblog #patchworkquilt #ecofriendlyliving

Another #stasiadress in a soft rayon knit. Scroll for back view. This version has cap sleeves. See my post yesterday too, because- pockets! These are SO fast, especially easy using tips I picked up in Meg's class on @craftsy_ Sewing with Knits. I'm not a video person, so I put it on 1.5x speed and set it playing on my laptop while I sewed along with her. An awesome class, I now use elastic in most shoulder seams for strength and always use a walking foot. There is a lot more in the class to learn, you'll see. I rewatch it now and then because I forget everything, I'm a Mom ya know? Only so much room in there, as I'm worried constantly about the dangers of Yellow no. 5 and the future of planet 🌏, will my kids be able to live fully and all that... ya dig? Can you tell I've had 5 cups of coffee today? πŸ˜‚ β˜•οΈ xoxo. #sewinglife #sewingblog #sewliberated #sewliberatedpatterns #livecreatively #makestuff #isewclothes #purpleday #learningbydoing

A silky feeling #missionmaxidress just in time for today's sticky weather.
