broken bars available

Broken Bars

 

Since the February Modern Quilt Guild Pattern of the Month was released yesterday (P.S. It’s by Debbie Grifka of Esch House Quilts & she’s awesome!), I’m going to start selling my Broken Bars quilt pattern to regular folk outside of the guild.  It’s available on Pattern Spot by C&T Publishing and the Craftsy pattern marketplace, but I just made my account on Craftsy, so it might not show up for a day or so.  I thought it would be good to offer it at a couple of different places, in case y’all already had an account with one or the other…. Anyways, happy hump day! -r

sewing samples part two

I finished sewing the strawberry plant and added it to my pattern. I didn’t have access to the good camera, though, so this crappy pic will have to do. I must say, those are some cute berries! Sometimes cuteness can overcome a terrible camera… 🙂

sewing up samples


I’ve been chillaxing during my long Labor Day weekend with college football playing on the TV and my sewing machine Rory running full speed. I haven’t been able to sit down and sew to my hearts content in a LONG time, so it’s been wonderful! In preparation for the Labor Day Sale @ Patternspot.com, I created a little pattern pack with a ladybug and a strawberry plant. HOWEVER! Photos are a necessary ingredient for patterns & obviously I needed to take some pics of a sewn sample. I stood in my studio and begged the sewing fairies to get down to bidness so I can get some photos online & they pretty much ignored me. So, I sat down and started printing, ironing, cutting, sewing, seam ripping, sewing, DANG IT! seam ripping again, quilting, and finally taking photos. Then I had to add them to my pattern pack in a fanciful way & post everything onto the Patternspot.com I didn’t quite finish, though. The strawberry plant has quite a few pieces and it’s twelve inches tall, so I’m still in the cutting out phase. Oh well, it’ll get done sometime this weekend and I’ll post it on here for you to see. Wow! It’s late! I should probably go to bed… Happy quilting! rebs

mwah test block

This is my latest project to work on called Mwah! It’s a spin on a pickle dish pattern & I’m sure there will be a few more iterations before I’m happy with it. It wasn’t the easiest block to construct, so I’m going back to the drawing board to find a better way to make it. & of course, everything changes so much when you introduce different colors, so I’m excited about the possibilities here. Hopefully, I’ll get everything written up and diagrammed into a good pattern for the launch of the Pattern Spot. I’ve also got quite a few more things in the works, but they’re in the illustration stage- It might be awhile before I can commit them to fabric. I *will* say there’s definitely more ndns! 🙂 And a few competition pieces. So, back to work!
