Getting back on the saddle! Giddy-up!

August 27, 2013

Oh man, it’s been so long since I’ve sat down at my sewing machine….. and if we’re being real, I still haven’t sat at the machine while writing this post.  Oh yeah, I got a new machine – going industrial baby! My new machine is a Juki 2010q and really have sewn once on it.

New Juki 2010q

Don’t worry though, I’ve been prepping to sew like nobody’s business. Have you seen the new line from Emily Herrick’s new line Technicolor? Yeah, I’m putting those beauties with Elizabeth Hartman’s Rapid City pattern. I’m thinking it will be a great mash-up!

Metro City + Technicolor


I just have to cut up the background solid and then I’m ready to rock n’ roll!  

I’m also in the middle of cutting up another HK quilt – I’ve been commissioned to make one for a good buddy – hopefully I can get that done quilt top in the next couple weeks.

I’ve designed a couple pixelated quilts designs and just hammering on colors etc.  One is for a quilt along. . . and the other is just for a friend/trade.  I can’t wait to get those done to show you.

Oh if you’re looking to order some Technicolor – here’s some helpful shopping links (call me #enabler) :

Westwood Acres (best fat quarter bundle pricing)

Hawthorne Threads (best pricing to buy if you select your prints)

    Woohoo! Congrats on your new machine! I have my eye on that or a Baby Lock Jane or Brother PQ1500S–all in the same semi-industrial family. Welcome back to blogging–can’t wait to see the quilt you make from that Technicolor line 🙂
