This is a scrapbook cover I made recently for a baby shower gift. I used mostly fabrics left over from making
Moonlight Moose kits, (wall hanging and table runner) so it was pretty easy, just a modification of that design. If you have one of these patterns, it would not be very hard to combine that with my online journal cover tutorial. The directions show you how to make it fit any size book. I will have to go put this photo on that page also. For the tutorial, click the link, and please send a picture if you make one, whether it is a moose or not!
Quilted Journal Cover Tutorial
And, only 4 days left in the wall hanging kit sale, these three are $29 each until the end of February!
I finally got around to doing some screen prints, and I went a little crazy! It might be time to do a card kit sale :-) In the meantime, there are only 5 days left on the wall hanging kit sale, $29 each for the rest of the month!
These three wall hanging kits $29 for the rest of the month. They contain everything you need but thread!
And here is where all those screen prints are going! These kits also contain everything you need, right down to the envelope to put your card in when it is finished!
I think I have put this needle organizer up before, but not for a long time, and it is so helpful! The first four bands represent 4 sizes of sewing machine needles, 10/70, 12/80, 14/90. and 16/100. That way I can switch them out without having to read the tiny numbers. I think needles are color coded now, or going to be? But I don't know the code yet... And I still have a bunch of non color coded needles. The other two are for hand and beading needles. I stick a pin in the band for the size that is in the machine, so I always know. I don't have a way of differentiating between types yet, but I mostly use Microtex and topstitching, and I can tell those apart by looking at them, the topstitching needles have a longer eye. I use those for metallic threads, they seem to work well for me.
And, don't forget our Leap Year sale, $29 wall hanging kits for the month of February! Click on 'Store' above to get to each kit.
I have been wanting forever to get some video tutorials up on my website. We did one a few weeks ago, and now we have two more. So far they all go with the Summer Dragonfly kits. So, if any of the free motion stitching kept you from making these, now there is more help! The three videos are:
1. How to stitch the swirly background quilting
2. How to stitch the little dragonflies
3. Doing the stitching on the dragonfly applique
All three are on the 'Videos" page, under the Tutorials tab, or click the button below. Hopefully more coming soon! I'm lucky to have a teenage boy to help be my "geek squad"! :-)
And remember, the three wall hanging kits (Summer Dragonfly, Moonlight Moose, and Autumn Leaves) are all $29 for the month of February in honor of Leap Year :-)
As always, feel free to share!
Here is a closeup of the stitching included in the tutorials.
In honor of Leap Year, we decided to have a sale on our three wall hanging kits, only $29 each for the month of February! New ones coming soon! Click on the photo for more info or to order.

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!
