DAY IN LIFE!
Friends, I hope you have been well! Are you ready for spring? I know I am… but the forecast says that we are supposed to have snow this Saturday, and possibly next Monday! YIKES!!! With the weather forecast as it is, I think I am going to just stay HOME TO ROOST this weekend (bad pun alert!). My Home to Roost quilt is featured in the latest issue of Quiltmaker.
This is an easy project that I actually designed as a teaching project that can be used to teach beginning quilters to quilt, covering the basic piecing skills in making the different blocks in the quilt. Because my quilting teacher Barbara was ever so patient with me when she taught me how to quilt (I am forever grateful to her!), a guiding principle in my quilt designs is that I always design something that is appealing enough to entice a non-quilter to take up quilting. :) You can read more about my design process here.
In the same issue, you will also read a story about my stitching journey with Miss Baby! It is my hope that my story will inspire many to pass on the love and joy of needle and thread to the next generation, whether with your own children, grandchildren, relatives or even in a school or church or community setting!
This issue is on newsstands now – pick up your copy today!
And of course, if you are looking for kids-friendly colors, do check out Miss Baby’s Spool-en-dids colors! You can read more about her embroidery floss collection here.
If you have a stitching with kids story — either from your childhood on how you learned to stitch, or projects you are working right now with your daughters or granddaughters, I would LOVE to hear from you!
Well, you are the best for helping me de-stash! Trust me, my husband and daughter are really grateful too! Here are the winners from the last round of giveaways.
