Happy Holidays dear friends! I’m so thrilled to be guest posting today on Craftsy! I want to introduce myself & give you some sneak peeks at a really exciting quilt project we’ve been working on for the New Year!! Wheeeee! Can’t wait to share it with you!
I’m a 30-something mom of two sweet little girls, a lover of modern fabric, and a quilting addict. My little slice of blog world is StitcheryDickoryDock.com, where I share all of my adventures in modern quilting & sewing, motherhood, and life as a semi-OCD, list-making, coffee-drinking, Law & Order-watching gal. That’s me! I’ve sewn all my life. I learned the basics as a very young child in 4-H, and am almost completely self-taught when it comes to quilting. I love an eclectic aesthetic, mixing classic historic blocks with fresh, modern fabrics. Each time I sit down to stitch something or design a pattern (like the iTote Workshop you may have seen on Craftsy, or my Cathedral Window Quilt on Moda Bake Shop), I really strive to embrace the idea of “quilting without rules.” To me, this means letting go of expectations and rules (from myself and the quilting community in general), and just allowing myself to sew what I love, in the way that I love.
Speaking of things I love, it’s about time to clue you in on some ridiculously fun quilt happenings here at Craftsy! I’m absolutely delighted to be hosting a brand new feature- Craftsy’s Block Of The Month! In this year-long FREE monthly video series, I’m going to show you how to make 20 of the most versatile, eclectic quilt blocks out there (ie- my favs!)…and guess what?! It’s no fun if you don’t do it with me! Join in the Craftsy quilting community by posting pictures of your fabric and blocks in the gallery, commenting, heart-ing your favorites, and asking questions (I’ll answer every one, I promise!). From stars to curves to paper piecing, it’s going to be one seriously fun year.
I’m buuuusy, busy cutting up this delicious stack of fabric, and my Craftsy peeps are busy getting the series ready to launch next month! Stay tuned! Wishing you a warm & cozy holiday season, and I look forward to seeing you in Janurary!
