I am a huge lover of all things plants, but until recently I thought my green thumb was only functional outside. Surely I couldn't keep houseplants alive, could I? Last fall I couldn't stand the idea of not having something green around me, so I brought in lots of my potted plants and have gradually added to my collection every time I pass a nursery! I've lost a few here and there, but overall I'm pretty happy with how my indoor green thumb has been developing. I found this beautiful snake plant for a steal, but didn't have a pot...

I love handmade gifts! I love making them and receiving them. What better way to say, I love you? When I'm making a handmade gift I'm thinking about that person through each step, from picking out the fabric to wrapping it up. But I've also learned that it's impossible to make gifts for everyone I love each Christmas and birthday. And not everyone loves handmade gifts as much as I do. So giving a store bought gift can say I love you as much as a handmade one if it's just what they wanted (insert cash money for those picky...

Hello friends! Last week - just in time for the Quilting on the Red Quilt Show - we released our latest pattern!

A full size paper pattern for the stocking is also included, along with instructions to make a "whole cloth" stocking, bringing the grand total up to FIVE stockings in one pattern. Start changing up the fabric combos inside each design and the options are limitless! I've been wanting to design a stocking for a couple of years now, but the timing...

Today we have a new FREE pattern for you! I put this simple table runner together because I really wanted an easy, go to project to make for friends and family. Something that doesn't require a lot of thought or time. This means that my desire to make things for the people I love actually happens! No barriers = a finished gift to give. The table runner uses a simple rail fence block as inspiration. We've worked out all the math and dimensions for you so we know it works. Just 6 coordinating fat quarters will make the top and...
