I'm sure you have heard of Edyta Sitar (Laundry Basket Quilts) by now.  She of the lovely quilt designs in patterns and books.  Well, add AccuQuilt dies and embroidery to the list!

With the GO! Qube Specialty Set - Serendipity by Edyta Sitar, you get dies and an embroidery CD to make a couple of her designs.  Plus, you can use the the applique and geometric dies to cut shapes for your own quilt.

For my most recent blog tutorial for AccuQuilt, I made patriotic placemats using some of the applique shapes!

After making the star placemat, I wanted to play with some of the floral appliques to make the flower placemat.   I love the way these turned out!  So, if you would like to check these projects out, head on over to my tutorial!

Christmas in July!

I don't know about you but I'm never ready with presents and projects in time for Christmas!  For once, I've made an early start.  On this hot July weekend, why don't you join me and dive into Christmas projects?   And, boy, do I have a cute project for you!

Check out my blog on the AccuQuilt website to make this wonderful table topper!

It doesn't take that long to make so spend the hot day in the cool indoors and you'll still have time to sit out to enjoy the sun at the end of the day!

Summer of 2016

Celebrate summer with my Sunflower Throw Pillow that you can make with your AccuQuilt dies!  Read all about how I made it 3-D for just a little more fun.

Also, don't miss a new AccuQuilt project, Woven Bed Runner, that you can download for free!

In other news, the free pattern project for Red Rooster's Akahana collection is making the rounds in Pinterest.   It looks so complicated but it's so pretty and easy to make!  

Using the same collection, make this stunning Table Topper!

Last but not least, check out these pictures I took at the Philippine Eagle Center.  They take care of injured birds as well as try to find ways to increase breeding.   Endangered and breathtaking!  

Enzo, my nephew.
This is "Fighter".  He lost his left wing to a bullet. 
Still so magnificent.
Keep cool this summer!
