And it’s made my quilt sandwiching so much easier. Usually I spread all 3 layers of a quilt out on my bed, pull it tight, and pin it. I’ve tried spray basting, and maybe I’ll try it again someday. But I still prefer pins. And I love this method. It lets me just use my cutting table, I don’t even have to spread the whole quilt flat.

I started this quilt back in April to get ready for the newest season of Doctor Who, and then life happened and I put aside the finished quilt top for a couple of months. Then when the 13th Doctor was announced, I got inspired to pick it up again. I finished it over the weekend, and here’s a loose tutorial so you can make this one, too!

I feel terrible that I don’t have any pictures of this quilt block finished. I definitely took photos of it, and now I can’t find them anywhere. I have a sinking suspicion I accidentally deleted the photos shortly after I took them. But this block was for Sophie’s stars quilt, and we had a lot of fun with this one!

We’re a little late here, the last month has been jam-packed. But Hannah and I signed up for the Kids Quilt Round Robin that Sarah Nunes from Berry Barn Designs and Sarah Goer are organizing this summer. Sarah Nunes reached out to me after I posted some Instagram photos of Hannah and her new sewing machine, and it seemed like such a great chance to get a little sewing in this summer and learn some new techniques with my new sewer.

I started this design in January 2015, and I’ve finally finished it! It’s an interpretation of the Andromeda constellation made with three sizes of wonky star blocks. Also, I do not love this quilt. But I just needed to get it finished so I could move on. I’m not good at having UFOs lying around, I like to finish projects. Even if I’m not wild about them, I’m a completionist.

One of Hannah’s birthday presents was this adorable mini sewing machine from John Lewis in the UK. Her grandparents brought it over for her when they came for her party, she as excited. I’d been thinking of getting her a machine when she turned 5, and I’d seen that one last year on a trip over. Now, she has it. And we’ve been learning to use it.

Woohoo! I’m so excited to finally announce this one. I made this quilt about  a year ago, and now I can share it! It’s in Issue 15 of the Australian digital magazine Make Modern. I love that magazine (check out their Instagram, too, @makemodernmagazine–it’s gorgeous). And I’m so proud to actually be in it!

I got 2 surprise care packages this week, and both just made my heart happy. Julie from Jaybird Quilts reached out because she had a Quilter’s Planner she wasn’t going to use, and she asked if I’d like it (obviously YES, because I can’t get enough planners).

This is really just another shameless way for me to talk about the puppy. We are so smitten with his scrumptious cuteness.
