Tag: Orange Room Quilts

If you head over to my quilting and sewing Instagram, @orangeroomquilts, you’ll see that I’m running a giveaway through this Saturday, January 28th at midnight. I just rearranged my studio this month, and I have a huge pile of fabrics that I pulled from my stash and decided not to keep. So, I’m packing up a large USPS flat rate box and giving it away as a prize!

Earlier this summer Cloud9 Fabrics asked if I would make a Corduroy version of the Easy Peasy Quilt I did for their Knuffle Bunny fabric collection. The Corduroy line of prints just launched this month, and the quilt is now up on their site!

I have been in the craftiest funk evvverrrr. I’ve barely sewn anything for most of 2013, it has not been a great year for my sewing machine. I made H’s crown, which I loved, but I had kind of a negative experience posting about it. So that took some of my mojo away. Since I got the news about my job back in March, I really have just been working to balance life at home, trying to work from home, and chasing a toddler. I feel a little guilty when I sit at the sewing machine.
