Scrappy Coaster DIY

A few weeks ago, I posted a video story highlight of a scrappy coaster DIY. I thought a post with step-by-step photographs would be a good compliment for anyone interested in trying it out for themselves. It's a really easy, practical, and fun project that you could finish in less than an hour. If you're a quilter or sewist, I bet you won't need to buy anything to make these. I also think it's a great gift item to give a set of 4-6.  Materials Needed: Scraps of fabric at least 1 inch in widthScrap quilt battingFeltThreadChalk markerFabric scissorsGlassware for...

Adventures in T-Shirt Quilting- Part 1

Hi friends! After a few years of quilting, I *finally* got around to making a t-shirt quilt for a friend. I've always been terrified of making one because I was worried about ruining the t-shirts I was trying to preserve, however, when a friend as me to make one out of all white t-shirts I knew it was a great opportunity to try with limited risk before moving on to t-shirts with designs! I looked at a few t-shirt quilt guides on Pinterest, but honestly didn't see a whole heck of a lot that was super informative or thorough so...

Swap Recap: Totally 80's Swap

Another swap is finished with Bee Creative Swaps and it was so much fun! Being one of the hosts of the swap, I ended up filling in as a Swap Angel for 2 people.  I know it's weird that they weren't matched with each other after their partners dropped, but the timeline was complicated. Anyways! For my first partner I made a cassette inspired swap item using a portion of this quilt pattern from Lysa Flower. My partner loved a lot of 80's music so it seemed like a good jumping off point. I've never done a piecing pattern quite this complicated before...

Stuff I've Made: Bookshelf Quilt

This was the final quilt I made for the 2017 holiday season! There was another half square triangle quilt I'm skipping over, but I didn't get great photos of it before sending it off. Next time I'm at my parent's house, I'll try and grab a few shots. I didn't share what I have over on Instagram so go check out @themorosebee to see it. Anyways! The bookshelf quilt. I'd been planning to make this quilt since last spring, but I saved it for the last one. I made it all over the course of a week and, it was such...

Stuff I've Made: Pokeball Quilt

I've been sharing photos of all the Christmas quilts I made on Instagram, but I still enjoy the process of sharing more in depth on ye olde blogge. Looking back, it seems so crazy that I made so many this year! This one was the second quilt (out of 5) that I made as gifts for people lately. This time around it was an 8-Bit Pokeball Quilt for my nephew. I knew I wanted to make a Pokemon something-or-other and when I found the 8-bit pokeball image I knew it was good place to start. ​Making this quilt went SO...
