As it stands, the medallion and border 1 add up to 21" finished. My goal is for the finished quilt to be approximately 60" square (it might be slightly smaller or bigger, but not by much). As far as fabrics go, there will be a few more added, but I don't have a total number as I am still fine-tuning the design. Hope that helps!

I haven't had much time to sew recently so I was pretty happy to string a few hours together last week to make this mini for our quilt guild's holiday swap. The quilts didn't have to be holiday-themed, and truthfully... Continue reading

Gorgeous cards! I love Minted - I use them for my cards, too! I've had my eye on their silhouette art and that cute heart of photos.

Autumn decorating is a little tricky for me. It is my favorite time of year, but the traditional warm fall colors like gold, burgundy, forest green, brown are really not my thing. I like crisp, clean colors and love it... Continue reading

Hi Nan! Yes, you could face the neckline and you could still use bias in other places. A nice, fine wale corduroy with drape would be lovely! I'm not sure about a faux suede or a denim - they might not have enough drape. I would recommend giving it a go in a recommended fabric and then seeing what other fabrics you think could work. Hope that helps! Erin

I think I liked The Rocks more, but The Vacationers would be good for the beach.
