I get around.

The Modern Quilt Guild blog featured my Spectrum Half Square Triangles quilt this week. How's that for making me feel cool? There is so much awesome inspiration to be found at the MQG blog.  I felt starstruck at the thought of one of my quilts deemed worthy to hang out there. Thank you again, Elizabeth.

Also, last week my simple pennant tutorial was featured at the Land of Nod blog. Fun times.

That's all.  I'm currently working on an etsy shop update for this week. It's return of the i-spy kits + some serious de-stashing. Stay tuned.

  3. That turned out beautiful. I remember that you were finishing it at the Sewing Summit last year. I was amazed at how seamlessly this quilt flowed from one color to the next. Another winner for the Amy Smart team. :)

  11. that pennant is adorable! I am trying to get into my local branch of the MQG here in PA, but no word back yet. Was there anything special you had to do to become a member?

    I am also starting a BOM group free for anyone to join in on. We started it this month and would love anyone to participate: http://www.danandmiki.com/quilt-block-of-the-month/
