I’m super excited to share my latest finish with y’all! It’s one of those introspective quilts, you’ve been forewarned. This quilt started out as an attempt to cut into my Cirrus Solids fat quarter bundle, but ended up morphing into something fairly personal. Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about […]

So a couple weeks ago I mentioned that I won a bundle of Cirrus Solids by Cloud 9 and that I was having trouble cutting into it. I asked for some advice and got some much needed tough love to get me motivated to use the fabric! So I sat […]

Last week, Pantone announced the Spring 2016 Color Forecast! I am always super excited about this because I am a huge color nerd. But also! for the last 7 or 8 years, the Color of the Year has been chosen from the Spring color collection. Which means it’s time to […]

Cloud 9 Fabrics has a new set of yarn-dyed colors¬†that they’ve released called Cirrus Solids. I’m kind of a huge sucker for cross weaves and shot cottons so when they announced they were doing a block of the month challenge¬†(which you can still enter, by the way!), I added it […]
