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  ...

Quick Stitch Kitchen Towels

I love summer. It’s my favorite time of the year, until we’ve hit our 100th day in a row of 100+ degrees weather. Then I’m kind of over it. But we’re not there yet, so I’m still in love with summer. And summer to me means lots of fresh fruits and veggies…like cantaloupe and tomatoes. When I spent summers in Alabama with my grandparents as a kid, there was always fresh cantaloupe—and sometimes tomatoes, too—on the breakfast table. So when I decided to freshen up my kitchen with some new  ...
