Try Craftsy with an Awesome Craftsy Flash Sale Today

If you're sad like me that you aren't going to Quilt Market, why not perk yourself up with a Craftsy quilting class on sale?  I can't decide between Quilt As You Go Patchwork Bags or Playful Piecing Techniques.  Which will you choose?  If you haven't tried Craftsy classes yet, they are such a unique way to learn new skills.  I've taken the block of the month classes for 2012 and 2013, and I've also had a great time learning new machine quilting techniques with Angela Walters' class.  You pay for the class once, but you can watch the videos any time you want, as many times as you want!  It's like having a personal one on one session with Elizabeth Hartman, Jacquie Gering, or Leah Day, just to name a few!

I promise I'll start sharing more fabric and sewing related content as soon as my new sewing room is organized!  Picking the perfect rug takes longer than I expected...

Craftsy Flash Sale This Weekend Only!

Craftsy is having a flash sale on some classes this weekend only - Saturday, Oct. 12 - 13 until midnight.  Some of the classes are ones that have been on my wish list for awhile!  I've always been impressed with Leah Day's machine quilting - did you know she does all those cool patterns on a home sewing machine and not a long arm?  I've also been curious to start branching out into sewing with knits, but I haven't because I'm scared it sounds so difficult.  Craftsy has a class for that (and it's on sale too)!  Be sure to check them all out.

Sunday Stash Guest Host: Me!

Finding Fifth has let me guest host Sunday Stash - what an honor!

Sometimes I'm late to the party.  I'm a doctor - we're supposed to run late, right?  :D  I don't know exactly why I didn't jump on the Architextures band wagon earlier, because the fabrics are perfect for many projects.  The prints and the colors - love them!  I feel like I had to search to the end of the internets before I finally found a fat quarter bundle of Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander to call my own.  Now, what should I do with it?  I'm thinking it'll be perfect for the Jacquie Gering Stitch & Flip workshop I'll be taking later this month.  I just need a background fabric.  Any suggestions?  If you missed out on Architextures, don't worry.  Carolyn has a new line coming soon called Botanics that promises to be equally impressive!

Lee also sent me this great find - Tula Pink ladybugs!  Thanks Lee at May Chappell!

Munki in the Middle September Block

September was sadly the last month of my Flickr swap group called Munki in the Middle.  We used Munki Munki or Heather Ross fabric as the focus feature of various quilt blocks.  This was a great way for many of us to have a quilt block with Heather Ross fabric we didn't have in our stash.  I've been incredibly lucky with great Heather Ross fabric swaps, but don't let me fool you - I spent a pretty penny on some of my stash too!

Here's one of my September blocks.  Kristy requested a churn dash using a low volume background and a bright churn? dash?  I'm not sure what that part is called :)  I used Katy Jones' churn dash tutorial.  The center fabric here is Calypso and was only available in pj's I believe.  The churn dash is Lizzy House jewels and the background is a Moda Sweetwater text but I can't remember which line.  

What have you been sewing this week?
