pink fox.

Pink Fox is another version of Kajsa Wikman's design.  I first made Rudolph for Faye's room, and this one is for a friend.  This post and this post on quilting have inspired me to blog more about the steps and choices made during the quilting process, and I plan to do this through photos.  Still so much learning…working on triangles and cursive quilting now and LOVING it all.  Happy stitching! xoxo.

P.S. I learned how to quilt through my Aunt Joan's Quilting 101, a work-at-your-own-pace quilting tutorial.  It is magic and taught me in detail all of the quilting basics.  Visit her website to learn more!

lately.

Lots of new goodies in the shop, lots of quilting, lots of homemade hard candy with sprinkles, lots of play time.  Winter cozies aplenty…stay warm + be well, Karen.

storytelling squares.

This pattern can be found in Elizabeth Hartman's book.  I started with Aunt Joan's Quilting 101 and am hooked.  Happy quilting!  xoxo, Karen.
