WHAT'S UP

Geo Baby was my one recent finish, but what fun! Samantha Green/For the Love of Fabric's "Geo" pattern was just what baby's mama wished for, and it was a joy to make with all those dots, plaids, and ginghams.

IN-STUDIO

On our recent retreat, my guild-mate Matt/@odditease convinced me to try pattern-matching a quilt back, which I'd done once before, but didn't feel necessarily proficient at, so why not? We used the tutorial by Samantha/
Aqua Paisley Studio, and though it took me a couple of tries, it ended up pretty good. I'll try again and see if I can't perfect my technique like Matt has!

TUTORIALS & SUCH

I've been playing with improv spikes the last few months (here and here) and am at it again. If they're new to you, here's a little tutorial. They're a tad time-consuming, but impactful, and definitely worth trying!

GOTTA LOVE IT!

Just scrolling through Instagram the other day, this quilt by Mary/[marymenzerdesigns] just jumped out at me. Oh the color, right? And Mary's use of Alison Glass' Chroma and Andover Chambray created such a happy mix. The quilt is named Morada, which means dwelling in Spanish. You'll want to read Mary's post to learn why!

P.S. Love solid quilts? Me too! Check out the new [sewsolid] on Instagram, curated by Angela/[angelabdesign]. You'll also want to see (and use) the new hashtag #sewsolid.

P. P. S. THANK YOU to all who commented on the last issue and were interested in the spool of Aurifil #4651 (Bari)! The winner chosen by Random.org was Cheryl Campbell. I've been sewing with my spool on pretty much everything, and I like it! It IS quite light, much like an off-white, so I'd probably choose something else for darker fabrics, but otherwise I've been enjoying using it, and as someone commented, it does up the fun factor!
