Yonder Quilt Along: Row 9 & 10

I knew it was going to happen eventually; even with the casual pace of a new row every two weeks I was bound to fall behind. Row 9, another row of Arch blocks, was it. Ah well. That’s why we like to keep it casual. I used a green with touches of pink from Tula’s

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 8

We’re in to September and Row 8 of the Yonder Quilt Along. Where did summer go?! This is another easy row, which is perfect for fitting into back to school schedules and the hustle of all the new things starting about now. I had a fat quarter of one of the Tula basics. It was

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 7

Hooray for Row 7, aka the Double Ladder Row! After the last two more intricate rows, it’s a nice break to do something easy. My ROYGBIV Yonder gradient continues with this yellow from Pinkerville. It’s kind of an oddball with the mint on the lemon yellow, but that also makes it a great transition piece

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 6

I’m back! After staying up until 2:38 finishing up sewing Row 6, not because it’s hard but because I can’t start stitching until after the Gremlin is in bed. Such is life. Row 6 is the first row of V blocks. Now there are small, medium, and large V blocks in Yonder. There are pages

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 3

Back to the Hourglasses for Row 3 of the Yonder quilt along. Nothing new about this row since we did them a couple of weeks ago. You’ll need ⅓ yard of the color if you’re using all one fabric. Again, you can get by with ¼ yard IF, and it’s a big if, your fabric

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 1

How did planning go? I thought the coloring sheet was helpful, or you just had fun coloring. Maybe a little of Column A and a little of Column B? I hope you got everything squared away and you’re ready and raring to sew. Since I’m doing all one background, I decided to cut my sashing

Game Changer

We’re just back from our first market in Houston! And though the 83 degrees and humidity wasn’t the most fun, I’m not sure coming home to a forecast of snow was quite what we had in mind…But because I don’t want to go outside today, let’s start sharing some of our new quilts. First up

Carrot Breath

I have a checkered history with rabbits. Most of the time I sympathize with Elmer Fudd, especially after they turn my potted plants into a tossed salad. However, once you get to Easter, they’re adorable. They should get as much of a fanfare in spring as the reindeer get for the winter. That’s how Carrot
