Hey Everyone! I have a new video up today! Do you ever have those days where you just have to make something? I make lots of things all the time, but I hadn’t had a chance to make something fun in awhile. And I mean, with no pattern, free sewing, no rules or plan. Most of the time, what I make is going to end up on YouTube or in a blog post and I am filming the process or following along with clear instructions so that I can pass thoseon to you! And most of my sewing will continue to be that way, but this was a fun little break and I think the end result will be quite lovely! I’m excited to show you the finished quilt! This video is vlog style, I thought it would be fun for you to come along while I was designing a quilt. It shows behind the scenes and gives you a peek into my pattern making process in a very real way ;). I hope you enjoy!

I would love to see a tutorial on how to prevent wobbly borders.

Thanks for doing this vlog, I really enjoyed it! I did like the different angle of doing a non-tutorial, although I enjoy all of your videos.
I also want to tell you THANK YOU for the inspirational words about how you may not know what you are going to do or where it/ you will end up, but just 'do it! I am in the process of getting a divorce and moving back to Arkansas from Texas and I'm supposed to leave in 2 1/2 weeks and have no idea where I'm going to live or what I'll be doing so have been SO stressed out...but hearing you say that, not just about creating but about LIFE, really gave me some big time encouragement! I CAN do this...whatever 'this' turns out to be! I can't WAIT to see where I'll end up and get my new sewing area set up and start creating some wonderful new things!
Thanks again, and keep up the wonderful work! :)

Melanie - I'd like to think that what you are feeling as it relates to quilting is how the Modern movement got started and how it keeps inspiring creativity. So, I completely understand and often find myself in complete agreement that between the have to dos and want to dos, I err on the want to do - to mix things up a bit...

Yes, I've experienced that same creative 'urge,' although not in the quilt department! It is so inspiring to see how you stepped out without a plan; it is obvious you have a lot of quilt/design knowledge. I especially loved the impromptu updates - you are a bright light! ♥
