Improv piecing a la Denyse Schmidt, texty prints, beautifully unexpected pops of magenta, hot pink, and purple - what a genius idea, and this dense straight line quilting that adds so much texture and interest to this pillow.

Paper Pieced Kaleidoscope Tutorial

Way back in March, I saw this stunning quilt top on Rita's blog. I was absolutely awestruck and mentally jotted down "paper pieced kaleidoscope quilt" on my to-make list. Fast forward to round 9 of the Pillow Talk Swap (PTS9) when I was partnered with Adrianne of Little Bluebell. I've been a big fan of Adrianne's for a while now and really wanted to make something that she'd enjoy. In her description of what she'd like to receive, she listed simple, all-over design as being something she…

Quilting with Perle Cotton

from the blue chair

It's not always about sewing around here. In fact it's rarely about sewing lately. A few weeks ago I was sick in bed all Friday. Not horrible sick, just sick enough that when I tried to do things, all I wanted was to go back to bed.

For some reason I decided to watch YouTube videos on making French Macarons. I have always wanted to try making these perfectly…
