I have two new sewing patterns to announce this week, starting with the Prize Bloom Quilt. This three-dimensional floral design is a rewarding project. It gives you the opportunity to practice a variety of techniques (curved piecing, inset corners, appliqué),... Continue reading

You are so welcome. I'm in the middle of finishing up several sewing patterns, so I'm a little scattered to say the least. I'm glad you found this post. Thanks for bringing beauty to baby rooms all over. —Heather B.

I've come across the most luxurious baby bedding by Tushies & Tantrums. I believe I was originally tagged in an Instagram post. (Which is one of my favorite things about Instagram—getting to see what is being made with my fabric... Continue reading

I have been keeping this blog since 2006. Along the way, I've received several requests for podcast interviews. However, for one reason or another, the timing never worked out to schedule a call. Till now. Stephanie Kendron from caught... Continue reading

You ARE reading that correctly. I'm working hard to up my pace. The next line will tie in nicely with Up Parasol. It has a mod & playful spirit. The other one is a surprise and won't be shipping for a long while (next summer?). ;-) Heather

Thank you, Holly. I'm always working on something! —Heather
Above, I'm using a bezel setting, which is a pre-made necklace finding. It looks a bit like an embroidery hoop, but it doesn't function in the same way. I'd love to see how your idea works. How well do your necklaces hold up? Is there enough weight to the finished pendants that they will hang nicely and stay forward-facing? —Heather
I'm excited to see what she has. Thanks for the tip. —Heather
Thank you, Kelly.
You can stitch the designs out in any stitches you like. If you're sure you want to do the herringbone—it does look really neat—I'll pull out my sample and see if I can put some instructions together to share how I did that. —Heather
Thanks, Charlotte. I wish it were realistic to work at that speed every day, but alas, it's not. I learned to accept that a long time ago. I'm just grateful for a super-productive day every once in a while. Feels good. —Heather
