Quilty Mail and Sundry

My week has been mostly focused on dealing with resodding my front lawn. That cascaded into a host of other issues since the sod people cut my FIOS and my neighbors Brighthouse cables in the process (despite them being marked by the underground utility spray markers that come out). Anyway – my mailbox has been more active with quilty stuff than anything else in my room this week. I wanted to share some fabric and such.

These fabrics came from Hancocks of Paducah web sale fabrics.

I’m so excited for this panel. I want to use it as an example in my FMQ class of a great way to practice FMQ with a panel that’s already marked.

I have no idea what to do with this but I had to have it. A fabric panel of the Declaration of Independence.

Now from Fat Quarter Shop!

I also ordered some Zippers off of Etsy. I want to do a tutorial on the Quilt-as-you-go Floor pillow (or dog bed) and ran out of invisible zippers. So I ordered some! This Etsy Shop is fantastic.

I did get some binding done while waiting on all the repair people to come.

My current UFO is a wedding guest album memory quilt for a friend:

I’m totally obsessed with this book! Can’t wait to review it on the Podcast.

  1. Love the binding fabric! Good luck with your lawn (or lack of it.)

  2. I want to see a photo of that quilt when you finish sewing the binding.

  3. I so enjoy your blogs and podcasts. I wish I lived closer so I could meet you personally. You are such an inspiration to me. Such a free spirit and soooo talented. If you get a chance check out the book cover of the book “Knot What it Seams” by Elizabeth Craig. You will love the cover of it! Meanwhile I am still struggling with learning free motion quilting…it hasn’t quite reached my comfort level yet. I have been quilting many years..started out by hand piecing and hand quilting. My most fun project was an owl with many, many fabric feathers and I recently found the same pattern online. I think it was from an old workbasket magazine (probably before your time). Not quite sure where the owl ended up but I no longer have it. You keep up the good work, I need lots of inspiration, Take Care, Char

  4. I’m drooling over those pretty fabrics Katie! Which quilt were you binding on the picture? Did you quilt those awesome spirals? They look amazing!
    Would you do a review on that book on your podcast maybe? The cover looks fascinating! I love sashiko and it looks great with the applique flowers.
