Sew, Mama, Sew!

I’ve been a little absent from the blog for the past week, and I apologize. It’s been kind of crazy – see, Sew, Mama, Sew! contacted me about being a guest contributor on their blog! Without going backward too much, a quote from their blog set off my “hey, now!” reflex and I ranted a bit here. It started some things that I don’t want to revisit, but I DO want to clarify that I’ve always enjoyed their site. You can imagine, then, my reaction when I receive the invitation.

Okay, enough blather – just go check out their two most recent blog posts. The first is by Sew, Mama, Sew!’s Kristin, titled Weighing in on the Great Quilting Debate: Three Guiding Principles, and the second is my contribution, Learning Classic Pieced Blocks, which is an intro of sorts to the Skill Builder Series.

If you’ve never visited their site before, take some time to look around. One of my favorite things is their yearly collection of Christmas gift tutorials, called Handmade Holidays, one subject (with multiple links) per day for an entire month. It’s worth keeping them in your reading list for that alone, although there’s so much more to see.



  1. Congratulations! I read your post and I think it’s a great way to bring everything (and ideally everyone) together.

  2. I just discovered your blog through sew, mama, sew and I am loving it. I appreciate your honesty and encouragement to try something new. I have been quilting for about 2 years and haven’t tried anything much more adventurous than the HST. I love the idea of a sampler, a great way to build skills without getting burned out and discouraged. Thanks for the kick in the pants!
