Temptations, Priorities, Projects and a WINNER!


When it comes to buying fabric and starting projects, it seems our

 “Our eyes are bigger than our clocks.”  —lck

  I just found this perfect fabric…

THEN I looked at my list of Unfinished Quilts…

Not sure this fabric works on any of these…

Not to worry…It will be great as the backing fabric for my next twenty tutorials!   Not my wisest purchase, but I still love this fabric…

Quilt Priorities


I also found this perfect pad of paper…(I need pads of paper about as much as I need fabric…)

But, it’s little reminder was useful…

"You can do anything, but not everything." SET PRIORITIES

So now I have my priorities straight…Just one quilt:

 Claire and Andy’s (AFTER) wedding quilt!

Seamstress in Fine Art now in Paper Piecing!


Girl Sewing, Theodore RobinsonPEGGY WORKS HER MAGIC

We are in for a real treat this week!  Peggy created a fabulous new paper pieced pattern for readers of The Inbox Jaunt.

This pattern was based on Theodore Robinson’s “October Sunlight” (Read more HERE)  and is from The Inbox Jaunt’s Saturday series:  “Seamstresses in Fine Art”.

Theodore Robinson "October Sunlight"  Paper Pieced Quilting PatternNOTES FROM PEGGY

There are more colors listed on the color chart than a normal person should consider, but the extra colors help distinguish one patch from another.

Unlike The Morning Heron from last week  that fit on one sheet of paper, this finished project measures 24″ x 21″. The reversed black and white line drawing PDF file is on 6 sheets that must be taped together to achieve that final minimum size. Enlarging the paper plans further will make the details of the woman even easier to sew.

Even though green is a color some of us barely remember…Here’s another possible color way.

Thank you, Peggy for your fine work!  I can’t wait to try my hand at paper piecing!  (I will definitely stitch mine in green!)
