One week away from pattern release day!
|My earliest prototype for this mini quilt using my tiny terrific tulip blocks.|
This winter I made a pledge to myself to focus on taking designs I've created and turn them into sewing patterns. Writing a sewing pattern is something I've done before, but I've let excuses get in the way of consistently pursuing this. Deciding that action is the best way to deal with those issues, I have been steadily working away on a pattern that I plan to release by April 1st.

|Fabric scraps of even the smallest size (1" x 1") can be sewn together to become the starting point of beautiful patchwork.|
Recently, I have been adding to the collection of my low volume fabric scrap stash, thanks to using fabrics that read as white, to the quilt blocks I have been sewing. I love when those scraps accumulate! Sewing scraps together is something that I have been enjoying for years and when I say I like to use up even the tiniest bits, I am not exaggerating.

|My first Scrappy Star Block for 2021!|
January 2020, I started the year choosing the Scrappy Star Block (click here for Jennie's tutorial) for my bee mates to sew for me as it was my turn as Queen Bee. I sewed two sample blocks to guide the ladies, as I wanted the stars in one colour (with each star to be a different colour) and the background fabrics to be a low volume mix of whimsical prints.
