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...

Vegan Noms: Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites

I used to share food and recipes all the time on my old blog and I felt inspired to take another crack at sharing some delicious vegan goodies I made recently. My birthday was a few days ago and I made myself some Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites! I can't say I made this up because it's very similar to a recipe from Isa Chandra Moskowitz for Mini Raspberry Cheesecakes. I liked the idea of the original recipe when I made it, buuuuuttttttt I don't like berries and chocolate so I wanted to switch it up. I was hoping this recipe...

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...
