My Newest Adventures...

Fall has come! Not only does this mean a gorgeous display of changing colors and bone warming comfort foods... it also means I get to stay inside more and sew! I really wanted a rich fall and winter full of opportunities to express my creativity with all my cyber friends, so not only have I started some fabulous swaps and quilt alongs... I've joined some great ones too! Next Month will be the { Kick Off } for my Munki Munki Quilt Along and SWAP!!! Plus, I will also be organizing and implementing my newest endeavor... The Pillow Talk { Swap }!! For all that are interested in what these two groups are about, please feel free to follow the links!! I am so excited to start both! One will lead me down the road to an amazing wonky star quilt made out of my darling collection of Heather Ross' Munki Munki fabrics and the other will be a surprise of urban goodness in the form a throw pillow! My scrumptious display of heart stopping, inspirational pillows from grand artists! 1. Crafting 365 - Day 75, 2. Owl Softie in Lotus - back, 3. big pillows, 4. Patchwork Pillows 2, 5.

I was super lucky to be invited to participate in and be the first ( month ) of the Sew New To Me Virtual Quilting Bee !! I have sent out my packages full of Heather Ross' Far Far and Away fabrics in a color theme of blues, aqua, and tangerine... My quilt will be a collaboration of whimsical Improv Wonky Log Cabin Style blocks... and I simply can not wait to start receiving them back! :) This was my block to express my vision for my lovely quilt! XO, Heather
