  1. I love love love Tula and pinkerville is awesome, love your curves piecing it looks awesome.

    Have a great week canโ€™t wait to see your sea serpent blocks xxxx


  2. Love your LQS. What great fabrics. Those snails! Great fat quarters, too. Just as I can’t remember the name of that Star Trek ship that looks like a big cube, I see that fabric that looks like circuit boards and see it for that cube, with the lighter one on the front catching light and the darker one on the sides!!! We’ll see what you come up with for it.

    The serpentine pattern is beautiful! Your block is WONDERFUL! Just precious. The heart in the corner is perfect. I played with curved piecing years ago (made a table topper for a small round table), and it was really fun. I suggest that you use starch. I like to spray the starch on the back, flip the piece, and then press on the front. I either use Jennifer O’s recipe (as a non-drinker, I actually have trouble getting my hands on 2 oz. of vodka for some reason), or I just use cheap (Sta-Flo) starch in a 40:60 starch:water mixture in a spray bottle. It really makes a difference on a pattern like the serpentine.

    So good to see you.


  3. I love that snail fabric. I’m not a big tula fan, but that snail fabric is uber cute. And I really like that serpentine pattern. One of the few craftsy classes I bought back in the day was for curved piecing. I still have yet to try it but I will tell you she recommends freezer paper also. I am going to have to check out that pattern. Good to see you again, and thanks for taking us on your road trip!


  4. Isn’t that mural at The Broken Needle fabulous!!!! I hope I can get down there in late spring and see it in person. Since Tim and I can’t drive that far, I’m hoping to enlist my cousin to take me on a road trip.

    Great fabrics. That snail fabric is beautiful and I also love the “circuitry” fabric.

    I can’t wait to see your curvy quilt. Your first block looks great. I don’t blame you for using freezer paper – much less dangerous!

    Take care and see you next week!


  5. Wow, that curved piecing looks great. How could anyone get tired of Tula Pink? I wouldn’t be one to use it, but it’s very unique and fun to look at. Look forward to seeing next week’s curved blocks.


  6. Congrats on your curved piecing! It looks beautiful. I love Tula Pinkโ€™s fabrics but feel intimidated to actually work with them in patterns putting those complex vibrant patterns right next to each other, so kudos to you! That serpentine pattern looks really cool, I may go and download that.

    Thanks for sharing the pics of your LQS mural. That is SO COOL!

    Take care!


  7. It was wonderful to see you! Thanks so much for the compliments. I miss chatting with everyone. As you said I donโ€™t have enough hours in the day ๐Ÿ˜Š. I canโ€™t wait to see the serpentine when it is complete. You do fabulous work. Tell your Matt we said Hey too! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜


  8. I love the Snail fabric! Iโ€™m havenโ€™t gotten on the Tula Train but that is really cute.
    I saw the photos Wendy posted on IG of the mural. It is gorgeous. I really need to make my way over to her next time Iโ€™m over at my HQ dealer. They arenโ€™t that far apart. Susie and a I should take a day trip.

    Yay for curves! Looking good ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I really need to get over my fear of them. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Happy Crafting!


  9. The mural at the Broken Needle is so good! I saw it on IG but I bet it’s even better in real life!

    Fun, fun fabric finds, as always. The circuit board fabric is fantastic…And I love the FQs for the lotto. Woo!

    Your purple hair is looking fabulous.

    You did a great job on the curve piecing. I taught a class once on curved piecing and it was the first and last quilt I ever made with curves!


  10. The Broken Needle mural is so fun… isn’t that nice that you live so close ๐Ÿ˜€

    The prism elements are so pretty. I don’t find them in shops here much, but I have a little of a few colours and they’re just lovely.

    I’ve seen your serpentine blocks on IG and they really do look great!


  11. The mural is BRILLIANT!! Maybe I should plan a trip to NC just to see it!

    You never cease to amaze me with you work and your willingness to just dive right in!!! Great job on the curved piecing!

    And thanks for the birthday wishes. ๐Ÿ™‚
