Aysha’s Quilt (AKA School Pride)

Okay so it's winter break for Aysha and she's a senior in high school. Yaaaaay her! And I totally think she was a junior when she asked me to make her school colors. Here's her picture of what I'm assuming is a wall somewhere in the school for reference. And...

Improv Poinsettia: FMQ Edition

If you don’t know the world of improv piecing quilt blocks, it is a gloriously freeing experience that gets me all zen-like and makes me feel like a painter with fabric. In a nutshell, I have a general idea of what I want the final image to be (in this...

Embroidered Ornament Tutorial

Mister Turkey

Yaaaaaaay! I finished a holiday project before the actual holiday! And it's totally possible for you to make it by Turkey Day if you wanted to. Or you can like come back to it next year. Or like you can just look at Mister Turkey and be all like "Hey...
