• Mod Blooms // Wish Quilt

    Sometimes Crafter June 26, 2020

    Since we’re on the topic of Amy’s Petal + Stem book this week, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about one of the quilts I helped her quilt for the book.

    Sometimes Crafter June 22, 2020

    So you’ve been diligently sewing your rows every 2 weeks for the Garden Whimsy Quilt-along and now you’re thinking to yourself: How should I quilt it?

  • Going The Extra Mile

    Sometimes Crafter March 22, 2019

    Yesterday I posted some photos on my Instagram stories about repairing foundation paper pieced blocks in a quilt i’ll be quilting for a client. I made a “highlight” on my profile page with all the posts if you’re interested in seeing how I go about making FPP repairs, but that’s not what today’s post is about. Today I wanted to talk about the business of longarm quilting and offering services like this for your clients. I had a couple of…

  • Pin Banner Tutorial

    Sometimes Crafter March 10, 2019

    Today i’m sharing how to make this very simple, easy and quick to make pin banner. I bought a few pins this fall and decided I wanted a way to display them in my studio and a pin banner seemed like the cutest and easiest method. I grabbed my canvas and got cutting and this was the end result. It was so easy I decided to type up a quick tutorial so you can make one, too! Supplies: Canvas or…

  • Batwings + Bowties Block

    Sometimes Crafter October 18, 2018

    Hello everyone!  Today I have long asked for tutorial for the block I used in my Halloween quilt a few years ago.  Not only that, but I made a YouTube video tutorial for it as well.  It’s such a simple block and so much fun to put together with scraps or small amounts of fabric you have on hand.  It’s the perfect block for a scrappy quilt. I had so much fun making this quilt, and using all of my…

  • Feathered Star Quilt

    Sometimes Crafter January 26, 2018

    Remember the days when I use to blog daily…yeah, me either.  It’s been so long since I’ve done any regular blogging and every year I tell myself this is the year I get back on track.  It just never seems to happen.  Social media has taken a backseat to actual life more and more every year.  I had a Facebook for years and I officially got rid of it two years ago.  Best decision I ever made.  I still like…

  • Kite Flight Quilt + Quilting Video

    Sometimes Crafter February 26, 2017

    I just recently quilted this beautiful Kite Flight quilt by Heather Wall (@heathersnacks).  If i’m remembering correctly, Heather is a new-ish quilter, and she did a really wonderful job on this.  The seams weren’t too bulky, everything laid flat and lined up well and was relatively square, which I noticed would be rather hard to achieve with all the bias seams that end up in this block.  She was going back and forth between two patterns and ultimately let me…
