Learning how to sew curves is just like learning how to ride a bike. Do you remember that first time riding without the training wheels? As a little girl, I would have been quite content to cruise around the neighborhood with my training wheels still on until my bags were packed for college.
Founder of Closet Case Patterns, Heather Lou, may be a sewing superstar but she’s also Just Like Us! She had a closet crammed with ill-fitting clothes, but was overwhelmed by the prospect of sewing (most of us can identify with at least one of those!)
Over a year and a half after its inception, the Reflections quilt pattern is now available for instant PDF download!
The Reflections Wall Hanging & Pillow Extension pattern is also available. Shop here!
I hold this quilt very dear to my heart.
You did it! You made it to the end of the Mod Mountains sew along. Eight whole weeks of cutting, sewing and pressing triangles and now in just a few more days you will have a finished quilt top. Give yourself a round of applause!!
The trees are green, the birds are singing and I’m almost positive that it’s not going to snow again here in Chicago – it’s finally summer in the midwest! Do you know what that means? It’s time to bring out the bamboo batting!
Mod Mountaineers, our blocks are sewn. Our mountains have been climbed! All that's left to do is enjoy the view from the top and begin our decent. This is when you get to lay everything out, step back and give yourself a rewarding pat on the back.
Friends, I’m a bag person. And a purse person. I mean, who isn’t. How could we ever live through life without a fantastic purse? Carry things in our hands? We only have two of those! And they’re so small! No. Purses and bags.
Heeeeey-oh! How are we doin', Mod Mountaineers? You still with me? The next two weeks get reeeeally exciting, so I want to make sure that your bags are packed and you're geared up for a sewing adventure!
If you're brand new to this Mod Mountains sew along, let me catch you up on a few things before beginning this week's climb.
Fellow sewists, we have gathered here today because of our mutual love for sewing quilts. But believe it or not quilting (though it’s definitely my personal fav) is just the tip of the iceberg in the beautiful world of sewing. Our next blog series, Meet the Maker, is going to feature other creatives in the sewing space, showcasing all of the incredible things that needle and thread can do!
