Stay home and sew

It seems that world has gone topsy-turvy! Many quilters are delighted by the shelter in place orders – the government is telling us to stay home and sew. I can do that!!

In these uncertain times, we are trying to navigate the new normal. Families have to adjust to home schooling routines and work-from-home guidelines. Whatever your reality, it takes time to adjust. I hope I can add a little bit of colorful quilting inspiration to help you navigate the next two weeks.

Sew some classic quilt blocks! One of my favorites is a log cabin. You can read more in this post.

Quilt Candy Online Event

A group of quilt pattern designers is going to be broadcasting live from Facebook every day from April 1st – 10th. We are sharing our favorite quilts as a virtual trunk show, just to spread some happiness in the world. Each person will host a short 15 minute episode on their own Facebook page, so bookmark this list as a reference. I hope you join us for the hourly celebrations.

Stay Home and Sew!

I hope you tune in and meet some new friends. Tell me what you are working on these days. I am finding it hard to settle on one project so I typically bounce between free motion quilting on my longarm and piecing blocks.
