Last week we journeyed into the wonderful history of polka dots. (FYI, there is an aaaaamazing video that you shouldn't miss.) Now that you are total polka buffs, we're moving onto...paisley! We all know what paisley is, right? It’s that iconic fabric pattern featuring the teardrop shape.

Before getting too far into dots, don't forget to check out the brief history of paisley too! OK ok, now snuggle up, readers. I'm about to tell you a beautiful and passion-filled story about the history of polka dots. You think you're not interested??
Have you ever wondered, "What's the deal with organic fabric? I'm not eating it. Is there a point?" If you haven't wondered that, I've probably wondered it enough for the both of us. There's a lot of confusion, opinions, and emotions surrounding the word organic.
The pattern seen in this post is Nordic Triangles. You can find it here in the shop!
Hi, I’m Dr. Suzy, and welcome to Quilting Medical School. Today’s class will be about a special sort of quilt surgery: fixing fabric bleeds.
Above fabric is Flamingos Lawn by Rifle Paper Co.
My dear, dear friends and travel companions: today we embark upon the final leg of our Quilty Adventure. I must say, it’s been a trip. If you missed any of our amazing destinations...
Before jumping in, I first want to point out that my Sew Mojo mini quilt patterns are an excellent way to try out some new fabrics and textures without the scary commitment of making an entire quilt.
People always say that around Christmas, the media is all, “You deserve warmth and comfort and relaxation!” and then when the New Year hits, it switches to, “Get with the program! Get in shape! Get practical!”
Well, I’m about to take a page from the mainstream media playbook (since I’m just as widely circulated, right?)
Here on our quilty adventure, we’re going to keep it cozy. It’s still December, for a few more days at least and if you missed the post on wool, turn back! It was so warm! Jersey is another fan favorite when it comes to warm and cuddly fabrics.
You guys, if you live anywhere close to where I live (Chicago), you know that it’s cold out there. We need to go somewhere warm. No, I’m not talking about Waikiki (although I’m def willing to consider it). I’m talking about wool.
