A few months ago Sarah Goer and I were discussing our kids' current sewing projects (we each have two eager littles who love working with us in our respective studios), and mentioned how we were certain to see them at their machines even more once school let out. I mulled over our conversation a bit, later proposing a project to her that they could all collaborate on, and then *poof* the Kids Quilt Round Robin was born!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my posts about the teacher gifts I'm working on this spring. I'm sewing two very simple HST throw quilts for two very wonderful instructors, and this morning I spent some time in my younger daughter's class having the kids sign their quilt labels.
Many may know Linette from the #honestcraftroomies Periscope hops & our amazing quilting community. We're working on a big quilt "hug" for her, and we'd love your help! For more information about the project, please read here. To participate & create a block for the quilt, follow directions below...
A friend invited me to an Eat, Drink, Stitch event in Lawrence KS and we had a blast! An evening of stitching with a side of good food & great company - my mom even joined us, since she was in town visiting : ) I made the adorable little unicorn above, which is a perfect gift for one of my daughters. (We're hosting a unicorn/donut themed birthday party for the girls this year, so... yeah, unicorn explosion over here!) I don't think embroidery will ever inspire me quite as much as quilting does, but I find it's the perfect hand project for bringing along to the playground!
