I've missed out on #missingmarket , #quiltvsquilter and all the other quilting fun lately because I'm Canadian, eh? Therefore I must be outside every second I can while this beautiful sunshine lasts :).
I took 3 days off from going to the studio and sewing and it felt SO GOOD! 🌞 Do you ever feel burnt out, even when you have your dream job? What do you do for a creative refresh?⠀
Give a little squeeze and a hug to your little ones today.
There is something about stuffed animals and dolls that one cannot resist! I think it’s the need to squeeze... lol what do you think? We are amazed at how popular @lindsayannostrom sweet Sunshine Girls are and her fabric line is delightful. It’s fun to watch shoppers reaction when they see the fabric and say “this is perfect for my granddaughter”. Then they start planning the pillow case, dress, quilt, apron... all kinds of projects that this fabric can be used for. @simplyeilene does many pattern projects for us on team ADORNit. This doll is one she did. So a big shout out and thank you to her!
Chiming in for #missingmarket with @gogokim and @thesewingloft⠀
5 things about yours truly: ⠀
1️⃣ I live exactly mid-way between Seattle and Portland, but just far enough that I hardly visit either and often miss out on things like #quiltmarket ⠀
2️⃣ I dream of owning a brick & mortar business⠀
3️⃣ I always need background noise when I’m sewing or quilting or handstitching, give me your podcast recommendations! I love shows like @creativewomensleague and @goaldiggerpodcast ⠀
4️⃣ I’ve never left the Pacific Northwest... unless you count a couple days in northwest Montana? ⠀
5️⃣ my husband and I are going into our SEVENTH summer together. Woah! Time flies! I still have as huge of a crush on him as when I first saw him at a random barbecue at the end of my first year at @westernwashingtonuniversity in Bellingham. ⠀
This glorious rainbow creation is Deidra @quiltyobsession 's version of my🐰 Bunny Patch 🐇. She chose to make a square version that uses just two of each block, and is an even quicker make... I love the fabrics she chose!
Deidra is giving away a copy of the pattern on her blog... Head over to enter and see more of her lovely pics! Versions of Bunny Patch are starting to pop up around IG, and I'm so excited 😆🤩
Hi hello just thought I’d say hi and tell you all about me + what I’m about, if you’re new here. I’m Paige, the gal behind The Wild Sweet Pea Quilt & Embroidery Co. I want to put beautiful things out into the world and I’m a firm believer that making handmade home decor products is one of the best ways to do. I think that handmade quilts spark joy that can be passed down through generations. Handmade products tell stories. So anyways I’m a textile + fiber artist specializing in quilting & embroidery, and I dabble in other sewing & alteration & clothing upcycle type things; as well as blogging and pattern writing; and most importantly, being a wife and mom. I like to be busy and I have so many ideas and I just want to do it all. Also, you can view the stories highlight reel for more info about me + my biz. So now, tell me— who are you, what do you do, and where are you from? .

Thankyou so much for all the support and hard work from my lovely pattern testers. Let me tell you that you're worth your weight in gold! Stay tuned as they reveal the amazing versions they've been creating!
Home 9:45pm. This hashtag #quiltvsquilter has really made me think about the evolution of my own quilting. Here’s a sampling from 12 yrs of being a quilter including my first and my latest. #libbyquilts
Me ha nominado @latelier_de_maya y encantada con ello. Gracias.
Aquí tenéis mi última de foto en la Albufera de Valencia... con mi peque. Tengo otro hijo más mayor, que ya no se deja hacer arrumacos... soy médico y como válvula de escape empecé a hacer pulseras de macramé y a trastear con el ganchillo... y por fin me regaló mi marido una máquina de coser. Debería haber hecho una foto de mi despacho... telas, lanas, patrones, hilos... me da vergüenza pero es mi rinconcito de felicidad. Suelo hacer estas cosas por gusto, la mayoría de las cosas que hago las regalo. Y me encanta compartir por aquí lo que voy haciendo y aprender de tod@s vosotr@s que sois unas artistazas. Gracias.
Nomino a @mariajosedelacruz7

#quiltvsquilter 👋Hi!!! I am (CedarFork) Sarah! Living and #quilting in central Montana! I love all things #HST , #precut and whatever color and design take my fancy at the moment! Straight line quilting is my go-to! I like to finish up what I start and try to keep my WIPs to a reasonable minimum! I enjoy collaborative efforts and am a chef for #ModaBakeShop , had a quilt published in #McCallsQuickQuilts last fall (bottom row, center!) and am dipping my toes in the pattern writing pool! My blog and my #Etsy shop are both #CedarForkStitches 😊 xoxo!
This says so much about me as a quilter.....if the 8 I chose - 5 aren’t quilted (sure would love to find a quilter in my area), one is very close (commission), one is my first ever started (not ever finished) and one is one of my favs (a bee quilt). I really need to step up my game!!
Thought it is unfair not to share my version of #quiltvsquilter and #artvsartist after virtually meeting many lovely quilters and makers. So 👋. Here are my own favorite quilts from the past three years or so that I could access via my phone. It is a fun exercise to review your own work from the past. I only wish I had a right amount of energy and time to make more.
Joining the #quiltvsquilter fun! I didn’t make all of the quilts pictured but I did quilt them all. Longarm, freemotion quilting is my passion along with my Grandson Darwin! ❤️ I didn’t make him either but I did make that cute little bucket hat he’s wearing. 😁
Y’all I’m beat. This softball season has been seriously messing with me and my creative energy. I tell myself I’m going to sit down and sew on the drive home, and then I just go home and lay down until I fall asleep. So here’s my contribution to be #quiltvsquilter (am I too late? Does it matter?) because I have nothing new to show (not even a decent recent selfie! This is from my college graduation nearly 3 years ago). These are some of my favorite quilts I’ve ever made/quilts I don’t show here often. I have a vague plan to redo #jennyssunsetquilt in the upper middle as a sunrise quilt and I have another star chart inspired piece, but that will definitely have to wait. #quilt#quilts#quilter#quilting
I sure do love to quilt. If I don’t spend time in from of my sewing machine at least once a day, it’s not a good day. I love to show off my latest project. Not as a way to brag but as a way for people to see my hard work, love, sweat and tears I put into each of my quilt. #OwlHoots#custom#quilting#sewing#quiltvsquilter#quiltingismytherapy
It’s the final week of the #siennaburstqal ✨ I finished my quilt top last week, and I’ll be doing the basting-topstitching-binding sometime soon-ish. It’s been so rad to see all the different versions of the #siennaburstquilt ✨ you are such a rad pattern designer @thencamejune, this pattern is so fun and challenging and rewarding ✨
I love seeing a selection my architectural quilts grouped together. It is a joining of my work life as a historic preservationist and art life as a quilter. I have a list a mile long of house quilts I want to create. The lower right are the two in progress right now. #quiltvsquilter#artvsartist#historicpreservation#oldhouselove
Most of my followers know pretty much nothing about me, so I thought I would use the #quiltvsquilter to introduce myself! My name is Martha, and I am 28 years old, married with no kids. 💑 I live in rural Kentucky, surrounded by beautiful farmland and lots of Amish people. 🐴🐄🌽 Navy blue is my favorite color. 💙 I love cooking, shopping, listening to audiobooks, decorating my home, and going on vacation. But sewing is my very favorite thing to do!❤️
I’m loving looking at everyone’s grids they are posting so I’m playing along!! #quiltvsquilter#artvsartist I love lots of color and LOVE dense quilting. Top left, middle right, and bottom center are customer quilts. The top middle, middle left are my finished quilts and the bottom right is my current WIP!
I've very much enjoyed seeing the #artvsartist and #quiltvsquilter , so here is mine.
I make quilts that look like soft, oversized fabric collages, using beautiful prints and lots of solids. I work in my studio in #vanguardcourt , London. I also make bespoke quilts for clients and give private lessons.
I will be selling my quilts and home accessories at the following upcoming events:
#hernehillmarket on Sunday the 29 of April;
#dulwichopenhouse on the weekend of the 12-13th of May (12 Fawnbrake Avenue) with @gather.yarn and @kceramics;
#camberwellarts open studios, in Vanguard Court, on the 16-17th of June.
