Kimberly Sac with The Fat Quarter Shop

Hey y’all! The summer sure flew by and it seems like I’m busier than I’ve ever been, but I’m still getting lots of sewing in. I was lucky enough to be able to sew along with Fat Quarter Shop as part of their Blog Remix series, and I can’t wait to show y’all what I made. FQS has been revisiting some of their older tutorials, and I had the opportunity to sew a cute tote bag—the Kimberly’s Sac—as part of the series. I just love how it turned out!

So I jumped at the chance to sew along with FQS for this new block in their Classic & Vintage series—I had a feeling this block would make the  ...

Maker’s Tote Swap

Now that my partner has received her Maker’s Tote from me, I wanted to share a few more pics and details of this fun project. I’ve seen so many lovely versions of the Maker’s Tote (pattern by Anna Graham / Noodlehead) and knew I would want to make one eventually. So when a Maker’s Tote swap opened up back in the fall, I saw an excuse to make one sooner rather than later and signed right up. I headed to my local modern quilt shop to select fabrics for my bright-color-and-modern-fabric-loving  ...
