While I’m away at QuiltCon, I have a couple of fabulous Sew Cute ladies hosting to help me out! Today we have Susie from Susie’s Sunroom.
Hello Quilty Friends! I am so excited and honored to be a guest blogger today on Alyce’s blog! I am a late bloomer to sewing and quilting, but have always kept my hand in cross stitch and embroidery projects. Some special aunts introduced me to sewing tote bags and I rapidly became hooked on to sewing. My sister Amy from Amy Made That! encouraged me to create my own blog, in August of 2012.
Here’s some of my latest projects and passions:
|Spinning In the Rain BoM|
I love the bright and happy colors in these pinwheels using Color Me Happy by V & Co.
Paper pieced (fill in the blank with anything paper pieced) – yay!
|Sew Kitschy Quiet Play 2014|
Betty is happy in her aqua and red kitchen! I keep this wallhanging in my sunroom.
Patchwork and Applique
|The Patchique’ Quilt Project|
Amanda, The Patchsmith, and I made 42 blocks from this book, Japanese Taupe Quilts, over the course of the past year. We made our blocks by both patchwork piecing and by fusible applique. I learned to love the calming colors of brown and taupe, paired with some red and blue fabrics. I will be making these blocks into a queen size quilt this year.
The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt Blocks
An ongoing book project, using the paper pieced patterns
The FWSQ blocks are a perfect project to pick up and work on, after finishing a big project. I like being able to select the fabrics from my pile of fabrics, where I mix up the traditional blocks with the modern Denyse Schmidt colors.
Throughout the year, I am so lucky to be able to test some patterns for some of THE most talented designers:
Elaine from Summercrafter, Samantha from At Home with Mrs H,
Janeen from Quilt Art Designs
I made this quilt as a Penn State University gal.
