Just look at these super darling striped heart pincushions by Pomada. She kindly shares the pattern for paper-piecing here, and you should see her post where she's also made a heart in blue. [saija_elina]
On the morning of February 1, when Laura/Vacilando Quilt Co. launched her PNW Collection, I watched her latest Instagram Story, and it really moved me. For one, living in the PNW as I do, I had been to many of the places she visited before, and knew their beauty for myself. Two, it was ages ago that she was here, inspired by what she saw, and the new collection evolved from there. For her to bring that collection back to the PNW for a photoshoot, I thought, was extra special. So check it all out - the story, the quilts and her words about them - and you'll get a feel for the part of the country I call home.
