Tumbleweeds in River Valley Fabric

I just loved making this fun Tumbleweeds pattern by Sarah Furrer, for Studio 180 Design. What made it even yummier was Island Batik's River Valley fabrics designed by Kathy Engle for Deb Tucker. The beautiful greens and blues made me think of days spent canoeing on the Wacissa river here in Tallahassee, Florida. Sarah called… Continue reading Tumbleweeds in River Valley Fabric

One Die Wonder with Accuquilt Project

What a month this has been!  People quarantined in their homes with the people they love (hopefully).  My husband and I have been joking "It's a good thing I like you."  Not too much has changed for us though.  My husband works from home, and I'm a quilter.  If I was locked in my home… Continue reading One Die Wonder with Accuquilt Project
