Sewing through the Polar Vortex

If you don’t live in the northeast, you may not be aware of this — It was really, really, really, really cold this weekend. So what’s a girl to do? Sew in your nice warm sewing space in a sweatshirt and slippers, making a baby quilt. Of course.  There may have been hot chocolate involved…

Fabric Pull

This particular baby quilt is for a very non-traditional momma. Lucky for me, she’s pinned a lot of nursery decor on Pinterest lately, so I knew to add metallic and some black/white prints. Then, add some coral, a little pink, and we have a winner. Well, I hope so.


On the wall

Brambleberry Ridge by Violet Craft. Cotton and Steel Arrows. Floral print from Les Amis by Patty Sloniger. Prints from Flea Market Fancy and Florence by Denyse Schmidt. A great print from Bold and Gold by Ampersand Design Studio. A few prints by Bonnie Christine.  A few solids, and a Kaffe Fasset dot, round it out with my favorite print – Sealed with a Kiss by Laurie Wisbrun.

Time to go back to sewing! And maybe laundry… enh, probably not.

  1. Love the pink!
    We had an extreme heatwave last week, but the effect was the same – stay indoors and sew. The only difference was that I did LOTS of laundry. It dries really, really quickly when the temperature is about 40C (107F), but I tend to leave it out almost all day as I dread going out in the midday sun to fetch it in. I wait until dusk when it is cooler!

I'd love it if you would leave your thoughts!
