Sometimes you just need a small start

Thanks to my new job we've been shopping for some new living room furniture, and generally just sprucing the place up. While we sit on thousands of couches [I wish I was exaggerating] I can finally get some progress on a king-size quilt for my bed. 

I pulled lots of blues.

And I'm making an Irish Chain! I love the traditional look, but I don't think it's too traditional to go with the modern aesthetic that I love :)

Here's a gratuitous kitties-on-a-quilt picture. They're finally best friends, which means I can claim my sewing room back. We've been quarantining the new kitty in there while we introduced them to each other over the past 2 weeks.

Happy Tuesday folks!


  1. Oooh, love the Irish chain! You're right about the balance. between mod/traditional. <3 kitties :)

  2. I went to a quilt exhibition last weekend with antique quilts, and found myself really wanting to make a double or triple Irish chain! Such a great, classic pattern.

    Also, two kitties? I'm so jealous! The new kitten is adorable!

  3. I love the quilt, it will be beautiful!

    Can I ask what sewing machine you use? Mine was inherited from my grandmother and is dying. I know you sew a lot, and was hoping you could have some advice to another sewer - I also craft, quilt and make clothing and decor. Thanks!
