Welcome back to me! I’ve been away for a little bit… I’d like to say it was a much needed vacation and I’ve been at the beach laying in a hammock. Truthfully, I’ve had an insane cold that wouldn’t go away. It got the best of me and my blog. I am so happy to be back.
This week is all about quilts! I’m sharing my inspiration today. I’ve taken on making a baby blanket for my best friend. I’m a month behind, but I’m following along with the Modern Bee book and making the “Playing Cards” quilt from the February block.
This January I was part of a sew along that Lindsay Conner hosted. Lindsay wrote the book Modern Bee – 13 Quilts To Make With Friends. I was lucky to be apart of the sew along. I am now inspired to take on the 13 blocks in the book and attempt to quilt each month.
I have been sewing for more than 15 years, but quilting for under 5. I find sewing and pattern drafting really easy. However, quilting gets the best of me and my brain. I feel like I am always mixing stuff up! So when I was offered to test a product called Alphabitties, I jumped at the chance! Alphabitties are specialty marking tools – small plastic squares to label fabric after cutting.
On Wednesday, I will be showing more about this product and how helpful these little squares are.
Until Wednesday.. Happy sewing.

Yay! I’ve been wanting to know about Alphabitties. Looking forward to your review. I was hoping you’d join hive 15 btw… 😉 Good to hear you’re feeling better! xo

I saw your post on instagram and when tried to get into it, it was already full.. Lindsay said she was surprised at how fast it filled up. Agh! I look forward to seeing everything you all make. I’m on the mend. Can’t believe how many times I’ve been sick since Jan 1st!
