Time to make samples!

I cannot believe that it's already September. Where has the year gone?! It's going to October any minute now, and I've got some big plans for October :) I am so excited to be teaching at Sewing Summit, with a great friend to boot! Lee and I will be teaching Foundation Paper Piecing, a hands-on sewing class where we'll be doing actual foundation paper piecing.

It's no secret that I love foundation paper piecing, especially string piecing, and I've started digging through my strings drawer to pull together fabrics to use in some class samples. I've got a couple of palette piles started on my cutting table, and some really fun plans for them. Stay tuned for sneaky peeks!!

If you're going to be coming to our class, I'd love to hear about it! Class registration opens this afternoon, in just a few short hours. So many options on the schedule! I'm so looking forward to making another trip to Sewing Summit, and so happy to get a chance to place more faces with names :)

  4. I got in! I just learned how to do this - officially learned I mean, I attempted to do it myself before but wasn't doing it right. LOL

  5. See you in class! I have always wanted to learn foundation piecing, so I'm very excited :)

  6. I'm so pumped to see ya'll at Sewing Summit even though I'm not in the class :-D

  7. I'm registered for your class and very excited to learn this new skill. I love the possibilities of such precision. I also love the polaroid quilt block in the photo!


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)

Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a mood teen boy and a chatty six-year-old girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
