Sewing, Sewing, Sewing...

If you follow more than one quilt/fabric designer's blog, you are probably aware that many of us currently find ourselves in the undertow of preparations for International Quilt Market, a trade show which will be held in Houston at the end of October. For the past couple of weeks, I have been sewing, sewing, sewing some more, and writing/tweaking/correcting patterns. Here is a peek at some projects that are underway, featuring my fabric line Sewing Room Social for Henry Glass Fabrics (available in shops and online in October):
The above is a border I am working on.

I know this doesn't look like much in the photo, but it will be sweet and simple, and done in 2 colorways, perfect for a little boy or little girl.
I did the above applique for a quilt, and I liked it so much I am doing another one for use in a companion project. It came out prettier than I'd hoped!

Maddie has been "helping" in the studio- which I really appreciate because I really do love having all of my fabric and projects covered with globs of black fur. Makes it all so much more interesting. These are pretty good photos of her- usually, because she is so dark, in photos she just comes out looking like a big black blob. At least in these she actually looks like a cat.

And if anyone has recently contacted me, and I have not responded in a timely manner, I do apologize. It's just that I have been sucked under lately, drowning in fabric (not a bad way to go, I guess.) I hope to come up for air soon....

Have a great weekend.


  1. I love your Maddie! Can't wait to see what you pull out of your hat for the Oct show!!

  2. Wow Jackie,
    Your appliques look perfect-I would surely mess that up!
    Glad to hear you are keeping yourself busy~!
    We are doing well here...Timmy is getting ready to move a couple hundred miles away to be an apprentice for a electrician. The nest will be empty of older kids-Now it's just Newt Newt and I~♥
    Have a great weekend,
    Love you,

  3. You beautiful feline creature really knows how to cozy up to the fabric! What gorgeous appliqués you have made. So delightful!

  4. How wonderful to be so so busy doing what you so so love!

  5. I love your kitty! She is so pretty. I also love your projects. I want to learn so much but I guess I need to sew before I can learn, right? Thanks for visiting me. As you could see I am in a cleaning mood. I am so over "stuff". I should be through with the downstairs tomorrow or Tues. I am so excited. The yard sale helped get rid of a lot.

  6. I love your work!! Beautiful fabric too! So lucky to be going to Quilt Market.
