Who sees quilting inspiration in this piece like I do?
Recently, my daughter and I went to see the Seattle Art Museums exhibit of Yves Saint Laurent’s body of design work. Entitled “The Perfection of Style“, it is a visual timeline of YSL, an important part of fashion history (and now). It presented not only many many of his classic designs, but also showed his many line sheets, swatch cards, sample print cards, and quick drawings of pieces he would eventually turn into designs. A true look into the mind of a creative genius.READ MORE
Some of you may be looking at the Outback Value Quilt at Quilt Market in Houston right now. If you are, will you hug it for me? I love this quilt so much, due in no small part to the amazing fabrics that it is made with. It is made with Outback Wife, a beautiful new line of fabrics created by Cathi of Gertrude Made for Ella Blue Fabrics.
These upcycled pin cushions are the perfect touch to make for yourself, or as a gift to a friend who sews. Try sticking in some pre-threaded needles, all ready to go for everyday mending. Or maybe some pretty glass head pins. They are made from scrap fabric and those little sake cups and tiny little ceramic cups and vessels I see often at the thrift store. There is usually just one of them, and I thought this was a fun way to use them.
