Main Crush Monday

Let’s talk about Main Crush Monday.

A few weeks ago I had the TV on while I was playing around with some fabric I’d just received in the mail. I heard a girl talking about Main Crush Monday and thought to myself, this fabric is my crush today.  And then I thought, I bet other people play with their fabric and crush on it too, wouldn’t it be nice to see what others are working with or see the projects they’re working on?

So, I’d like to invite you to link up anything at all that you are feeling super excited about – it can be a fabric line, a print, a project, a block, a pattern, a new tool, your sewing room, sewing machine, an entire quilt, whatever.

It’s also a good time to get feedback from others. For example, I have the Rosewater Jelly Roll and I’m not sure what project to use it on.  Someone in quilt blog land might have a pattern it would be perfect for.

Each week I’ll have a link so you can link your blog post that describes your crush.

FYI: My niece informed me that what I heard was Man Crush Monday.  I had to laugh – I guess I heard what I wanted to hear!!! 🙂

MCM #186: A Wedding Quilt and Some Tiny Piecing

MCM #186: A Wedding Quilt and Some Tiny Piecing

I took time over the weekend to make some progress on a small wall hanging I started earlier this year. Remember this little bird block? The last time I had him out was in April. Since the wall hanging is fall themed, I think I better move a little faster on this...

MCM #184: Razzleberry is a Completed Top!

I am SO HAPPY to tell you that I was able to sew the last 3 seams last week and now have a completed scrappy version of Razzleberry. Yay! I love the way these fabrics play together, and I like the way the blue Grunge (yum, Grunge) adds to the overall look of the top....

MCM #183: Scrappy Razzleberry is an Almost Finished Top

Look at that! Three rows of the scrappy version of Razzleberry are complete, and I only have three rows to go. AND....those last three rows are already assembled, I just need to sew the rows together and add them to the ones you see here (these are the bottom three...

MCM #182: Happy July!

Oh you guys! We are starting the short, quick slide down the back half of 2020. Already! I'm pretty sure just last week we were celebrating spring, and now we are in the midst of summer and some of us are even beginning to plan for the {quickly} approaching holidays....

MCM 181: Quilter’s Block – It’s a Thing

MCM 181: Quilter’s Block – It’s a Thing

Last week was tough and I didn't make a lot of progress on customer quilts. I had a busy work/class schedule, and a couple days where my back decided I needed to rest. I don't like days when I want to get a lot accomplished but the body says 'ain't gonna happen today...

Hi Everyone! I'm so happy you've stopped by today. I've got a lot of fun things to share with you - last week was a busy week for me! Do you remember the sneak peak of Laura's machine embroidered quilt I showed last week? You know, the one with the micro quilting...

I've been having a lot of fun working on customer quilts lately. I have to admit for a little while I wasn't having very much fun. But the weather has gotten better (yay for warm temps and less rain!) , our stay at home restrictions have relaxed, I've started teaching...

MCM #176: Four Patch Finish and New Pattern Coming Soon

MCM #176: Four Patch Finish and New Pattern Coming Soon

Well I did it. I finally finished the quilting on the Four Patch. Whew! This one took longer than I expected. It was all ruler and freehand, and there were multiple starts and stops in each block. I always try to find a quilting path that minimizes the starts/stops...

MCM #175: ‘Shuriken’ Quilt Finish

Happy Monday everyone! How are you? I hope you are doing well, and found some personal time for sewing last week. I didn't get to do any sewing for myself, but I finished several customer quilts so I'm pretty happy with that. The first one I'm going to share with you...
