Modern Patchwork Sketchbook Cover

Modern Patchwork is one of my favorite publications! It’s always full of fun, fresh, well-made ideas. And I’m excited to be in the new issue! 


My project is this sketchbook cover! It’s made with Carolyn Friedlander mini charms. 


This is a fun one to dig through your scrap bin for. I’m contemplating making another one with my coveted Liberty scraps.


The cover is hand stitched with oversized cross stitches. I used Aurifil Aurifloss which is my fave floss. I’m pretty sure that citrine color is my favorite.


Inside the covers is more scrappy goodness with binding.


Modern Patchwork is available at your local new stands or you can pick it up digitally here. Check it out!

Here Comes Emily

The Triad MQG is about to host another exciting speaker! Emily Herrick of Crazy Old Ladies fame will be coming to speak with the guild and teach a few workshops at Village Fabric Shop. Her guild presentation is Tuesday, April 26 at 6:30 pm. We meet at South Fork Community Center on Country Club. Her first class will be Wednesday, April 27 from 10-1. We will be making this adorable hand embroidery project. 


Then Wednesday night, she’ll be teaching this mini! It’s based on her Big Game quilt and a Village Fabric Shop exclusive. I’ll be making it for my uncle. So awesome!

Emily is a really fun person so be sure to check out one (or all) of the events! You can register for the classes by calling the shop directly at (336) 779-6155.

Terrific Tool Thursday: Misty Fuse

Today’s Terrific Tool is Misty Fuse. Last week, Shannon Brinkley came to North Carolina to teach a Scrappy Bits Appliqué workshop. She’s an avid Misty Fuse user. It’s a thin fine interfacing that’s double sided and can be used in similar instances to Wonder Under and Steam A Seam Lite, but it’s MUCH thinner. So thin, in fact, that I struggled to get a photo.


It leaves the fabric much more pliable! I’m sold:)
