#myquiltcouldlivehere- Willy Loman Quilt

 

When I feel creatively stuck it really helps me to look back at the quilts I’ve made and create a #myquiltcouldlive here collage with them. A bit like revisiting an old friend, spending some time with these quilts reminds me of when I formed the initial idea in my head or when I worked through a design problem that I was feeling challenged by when making it. I believe every quilt we make, even the ones we really don’t like, teaches us something.

‘Tis the season for some Slow Stitching

Sashiko coaster

What is slow stitching, you ask? Well, in my book that would be hand sewing, hand piecing, and time taken to learn new hand stitching skills. We recently completed the latest #wisecraftstitchalong, the Sashiko coasters (slow and satisfying stitching) over in the Wise Craft Quilts Facebook group and it was loads of fun. I’m finding my comfort level in front of the camera more every session of these Facebook Live videos, and I am loving being able to connect with everyone in real time! But if you aren’t a fan of Facebook, or you didn’t get a chance to follow along with the FB Live stitching sessions, not to worry. I’ve created playlists of both of the #wisecraftstitchalongs we’ve done so far and they are now up on my YouTube channel. You can join in with supplies you may have on hand, or grab some from my shop (sashiko starter kit or EPP templates), and make some time for a little slow stitching during the holidays.
