I didn’t wash this red fabric before I made this quilt. 😬. Then I went and made the back with my kids Aden and Anais blankets from when they were babies....which are primarily white.  I thought for sure that I would end up with a mostly pink background and that this quilt would be “ruined” when I finished it. .
So, it has sat on my shelf for at least a year, just waiting for binding.  I finally finished it today, then washed it.  It’s fine!!!! It’s not pink!  The red didn’t bleed at all!!!!

Extreme skinny #toothpickquilting I find the effect transformative.  This has been a very interesting experiment #improvquilting #modernquilting #austinmqg #apqsquilting #improvminiquilt
A sneak peek at my tiny piecing project. Some assembled blocks. Love the way this color palette plays together! #tinypiecing #artquilt #quilt #inchies #yellow #austinmqg #abstractart
Finished my guild name tag! I ended not even using the stamp I made, because I was so excited to try some small piecing and embroidery! Don't worry, the stamp will get used on something else. #austinmqg #austinmqgnametags #sashiko #needlework # handstitching #indigo #smallpiecing
Just one more.  I love seeing my quilts in use.  So much love in this picture.

That point when you are pressing 6.5 yards of fabric for a back but fall in love with 1 square inch of it 😂😍❤️ @libselliott #quiltmafia #austinmqg

I did a block printing demo at the AMQG meeting this week! It was scary but fun, and everyone was super encouraging. We are sharing techniques to make our own name tags. I want to try them all! Thank you @kakiyork and @xostitches for buttering up the crowd with your great piecing and stitching demos! #ingoodcompany #quiltguild #austinmqg #printmaking #blockprinting #textilearts #iknowwhatimdoing

Who else signed up for the #AustinMQGFabricChallenge ??? I started playing around with #sliceandinsert Not sure where this is going, but it’s fun to make these blocks. #austinmqg
Part-way through quilting (in sections)... view from the back through the “batting”. Using drapery lining as middle sandwich later for a super thin summer quilt for @johanna4480 #austinmqg #modernquilting #japanesefabric

Post #6A - This past weekend, my guild hosted Jacquie Gering! The lecture was titled Intuitive and Outsider Design. @jacquietps inspired us all! #austinmqg members also had the opportunity to learn Jacquie’s Slice and Insert techniques or Creative Quilting with the Walking Foot. It was a fantastic weekend full of inspiration! What was the most recent class that inspired you?

🔊 #flameseekerpattern by @lillyellasworld and #mothstotheflame by #fromashesrise #quiltmafia #austinmqg #oldpunksneverdie  When the street's symphonies meet the last opposition
To the harmonies embedded in their sequenced affairs
Angels will scatter the land, fluttering, flying like moths to the flame
Rising to march on the eastern plague, rising to march on the savages ways
Fluttering, flying like moths to the flame
Wait until tomorrow

This sucker is finally gonna get completed this weekend. #yearofthewip #austinmqg #quiltretreat #carolynfriedlander #stripesquilt #paperpiecing
Been busy. 🐝 I made some knit garments (represented by the Kitty Cat top) and finished a couple of quilts.  Sometimes simple is good for the soul #austinmqg #modernquilting #showusyourmqg #longarmquilting
My first quilt on the longarm!! It was super fun, but I’m worn out! #austinmqg #modernquilt #echinofabric #bunnysdesigns
Really into Memphis Design right now. I designed a picnic size quilt in this style but wanted to test this applique method out on something smaller first. This is a quilted pillow-top, next up, actually making the pillow and then onto the quilt project. Shout out to @theclothpocket for having a rad selection of solids for me to pick from. *

Thank you @overthetopquilting for the opportunity to showcase some of my quilts in your studio.  It made my heart 💜 sing to see a few of my favorites on display.  #austinmqg #showusyourmqg #modernquilts #longarmquilting #themqg Stop by and check them out 😊swipe to see them all
Finally fmq this one, it was a really fun improv top to make!#austinmqg #blackandwhitequilt #improvquilting
Four patch improv scrap block! I do love bold color! #austinMQG #improvquilting
Needed to make a demo block for my #moonstonequilt class yesterday with the @austinmqg. I was so inspired by a recent block by @zephyrskies using #divingboardfabric by @alisonglass that I asked if she’d mind me making my own version. I’m glad she said yes because I loved making these blocks on my flight home to NYC last night. 
One of the best parts of working on Moonstone (and any pattern I’ve put out there) is seeing how you all interpret it and make it your own. It truly is an amazing thing to witness. 
So thank you, Irina, for making a splendid version of Moonstone and for letting me riff off it. And thank you to everyone in my class yesterday and to all the other Moonstoners out there!
Kit available through the wonderful @karenthediyaddict via the link in my bio.

My friend Amanda @whatthebobbin lost one of her furbabies the other day & he was practically an honorary member of the #austinmqg. So, I felt a tribute was in order to #roryroogram. I altered the Kitten Around pattern to look like him & then I thought he would look much happier inside his pineapple cat bed. I don’t have much yellow & cream fabric, so I might redo him in better colors... I haven’t appliquéd anything down yet.  Pets are family & this guy is dearly missed... 😿

Today is the day✂️✂️I have been “saving” #grafic by @latifahsaafirstudios for too long now.  It’s time to start cutting ✂️#austinmqg #showusyourmqg #hoffmanfabrics #me+you
Happy National Quilting Day!  This is one of my favorite #pileoquilts photo... If you look closely inside the green circle ⭕️ you will see a dog in #quiltheaven #pennylovestosnuggle #austinmqg
Whipping up this baby quilt has been fun this weekend.  Didn’t even mind all the measuring, cutting, sewing, recutting....which is usually my least favorite.  I think this project following a large FPP project like Elephant Abstractions was perfect!

It’s the only quilt I’ve made in quite awhile so even if it’s only 8” I’m glad to share it.

I guess I’ll play too #igquiltfest
I’m Sarah & I’ve been sewing for almost 2 years now. I enjoy making quilts & bags. I do not enjoy basting or binding. I’m still in the “try everything” mode of learning. I see something I like & I take a shot at making a block or two. I just went to visit my first quilt guild meeting tonight at the #austinmqg which was a really cool way to start the month!
