Slowly getting back to it… with a giveaway

I have just about finished all my fun antibiotics and have started to feel normal again, after a year or so of struggle.  Thank you to everyone who reached out with good wishes.  I really appreciated it.

While I have been recuperating I have had a couple of inquiries about when the Row by Row pattern I helped design for Modern Domestic would be available… and today is the day.

A Yummy work in progress

Last weekend I took part in the Pacific Northwest Modern Quilt Guild Meetup – quite a mouthful hey!  Guilds from around the Pacific Northwest gathered in Portland to meet, sew and basically have a great time.  It was a lot of fun and I meet some amazing quilters.  One of the events on Saturday was a charity sew day at Modern Domestic.  I spent several glorious hours using an amazing Bernina Sewing machine making these…

As part of the goodie bag for the Meetup there was small packets 2 1/2 squares of Lecien’s “Happy Mochi yumyum” fabric (Monica, the designer of these fun fabrics is a Portland MQG member).

I gathered my packets, hunted down some of the spare packets that were left over and then bribed some more packets from some friends.  Finally when I thought I had enough, I went to work.

blocks in progress

I paired the fabric with some Kona “Snow” and happily sat chain piecing and ironing for hours.  I managed to get 4 blocks of 12 done during my time at the Sew Day, then bought the whole process home to finish.

work space

There is Yumyum all over my work space, which is fine with me.  It is such a happy fun fabric and works well in 2 1/2 inch squares.

I am hoping to have the top finished by Friday, so I am off to quilt some more.
