A little helpful tip for the January PMQG BOM:
This block was so fun and so fast!
I cut all 8 strip blocks from one set of full width of fabric strips. Sew the half triangles together to make full squares. To have more wiggle room, cut your original squares 1/4” larger than needed and trim all 8 squares down at the end. #pmqg @portlandmqg @stitchwellandprosper #pmqg2018bom

The 2018 Portland Modern Quilt Guild block-of-the-month designed by @stitchwellandprosper caught my attention. I knew it was a make-it-right-now or make-it-never situation. So I jumped right in. ...
I am using a selection of prints and KONA coordinates from my new Palm Canyon collection. So far just Kona White and Adeline in Cactus. ...
Instructions for this BOM are free on the @portlandmqg website under Projects—>2018 Block of the Month

2017 in photos. Just a glimpse into a portion of my life. Design drives my creative soul. Thank you so much for sharing this passion with me and being a part of my life! That Quilt Market win was a fulfilling personal achievement, for sure, and I could not have done it without @makeshiftkat and the @robertkaufman team. Shout out to my family and my #covenwolfpack I love you kids! 2018, bring it!!!!! #2017bestnine #violetcraft

Christmas Eve at my sister in law’s house. Finally feeling a little better. The flu has had us all down and out for days now. Fun seeing this quilt made by my MIL using Christmas on Brambleberry Ridge. Pattern by @thimbleblossoms

Yay! It is Kona Color of the Year day!!! The #konacoty is Tiger Lily. This vibrant color is a perfect red-orange for my mid-mod inspired design. The pattern is FREE at Robert
You’ll also see a different version at QuiltCon. I’m not going to show that one until then. 😉 ...

Here’s my setup for FPP. I keep my fabric and templates off to the left and my add-a-quarter-plus ruler, rotary cutter and seam roller right on my cutting mat. The Duck easy stick tape is close by and not pictured is my Janome 1600p and seam ripper.
I’m using @robertkaufman Manchester Metallic in Eggshell. ✨✨
I’m making the smaller version, so: One down, five to go! ✨✨

TIP: Using white or light fabric in your #foundationpaperpiecing project? When you place the light fabric after a darker one, pull it out about 1/16” further so the darker fabric won’t show through.

Let’s make a tree skirt!!! This is NOT what I should be working on, but I am! I am using the #atomicstarburstquilt pattern to make a tree skirt. It takes 24 prints and 12 stars for this layout if you want to sew along with me!
