More sewing goodness

I have been in my quilt room every night this week. I think it's a record! Maybe because it's in the basement I don't go in as much as I would like. But it's been getting colder here in NH the last couple of weeks, and I happen to have a heating vent in my quilt room, and it's always warm and cozy in there. What other reason do I need?!

Last night I worked a little more on some houses... I think I might just keep these. Too cute! And I did what us quilters do best - cut up perfectly good fabric and sewed it up into a new piece of fabric! Stay tuned to see what this will become...

Today I actually have a free day, so I am going to get off this computer and head down to the basement and dare myself to cut up the Katie Jump Rope fabrics. Think I can do it?!

makes us seem a bit nuts...cut up perfectly good fabric and sew it into new fabric. that's one way to look at it for sure!

Katie Jump Rope is such a great fabric...I haven't been able to bring myself to cut into mine yet, but I'd love to see what you decide to make!

Those houses are as cute as a button! (Two buttons even!!) the colours are great. I love that you end up "making your own fabric". Can't wait to see what you do with it. No pressure or anything!! :)

Oh I just love your houses and i need to wipe the drool off my keyboard for that "new" piece of pink fabric. Can't wait to see what it becomes.

Warm and cozy and yours--what more could a quilter want? Obviously it's agreeing with you--look at that lovely "new" fabric!

Hi Joanna

I just found your blog from browsing. I see you are originally a kiwi. Hello to you from home:-)

Why does no one complain about carpenters or builders or joiners cutting up perfectly good bits of wood and nailing/glueing them back together??? Or perhaps they do and I'm just hunkered down in the quilting world :-)
