Nectar Quilt

Nectar Panel Quilt courtesy of Charlotte Kaufman

Happy first day of Spring! We love this image recently shared in our shop from Charlotte Kaufman. Standing in her snow boots with a blooming quilt, it looks like a gentle reminder to mother nature what our new season is supposed to look like. The panel measures 56" x 72" and is a part of our Nectar fabric collection.

We have lots of new fabrics to spark some springy sewing projects.


Modernist from Joel Dewberry

Free Quilt Pattern from Free Spirit

Joel Dewberry's new Modernist collection presents fashion fabric at its finest. Colliding flavors of vintage kick-back, block print florals, and fractal geometrics combine to create a new and unexpected harmony. No matter the occasion, these fabrics make a memorable statement. Blues, greens, fuchsias, golds and neutrals come together in an eclectic palette to enjoy together or divided up into three focused color stories.

We have yardage and Fat Quarter Bundles as well as the Modernist Voile for light and airy spring garments and quilts.

Welcome back to day 2 of the Lodo Dress Sewalong. I am excited to get sewing. Today we are going to be tackling the back seam, back slit for View A and sewing up the shoulder seams. Super easy. Let’s get started. Step 1 – (This Step is for View A Only. View B starts at Step 3 so go ahead and skip on down to Step 3 if you are sewing the shorter version without a back slit.)  Remember that all seam allowances are 3/8″ unless otherwise stated in the instructions. If you want to finish the seams with a serger you will want to do that now. You can serge each back seam independently before sewing them together. Since knits do not fray this is not necessary. I am going to opt out on serging View A (but will serge View B so that you can see both). You will be sewing this step using a stretch stitch. If your machine has a stretch stitch it will look something like a lightning bolt. No. 9 on my machine. If you don’t have one of those stitches on your machine you can also use a zigzag stitch and just […]

Variegated Yarns: swatches in knitting, crocheting and weaving

It’s always so mysterious how a pretty little skein will work up, isn’t it? Especially with variegated yarn! I dyed up a little (well, BIG) skein and made swatches in knitting, crocheting and weaving! And they’re SO different! Here’s the skein I dyed (if you want to try it, check my tutorial on how to […]
