Rainbow Geese - in the new issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting

In the latest issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting, issue #20, starting to hit newsstands in England, you'll find another fun mini quilt pattern from yours truly. This is one of my personal favorites! The Rainbow Geese mini pattern is a great foundation paper piecing pattern that features beautifully vibrant rainbow solids, mixed with some grayscale solids to make the rainbow colors pop.

One of my most favorite color palettes to use is a good old-fashioned rainbow. It never fails to put a smile on my face! This mini is destined to hang up in my new sewing space in my new house when it returns home soon, where many of the other minis in this series have been hung so far. I'm nearing the end of my setup process, and promise to share pictures soon. I'm excited to finish and to share, it's a great space. I've got great natural light from a large window in the room and a super fun, under-the-stairs closet that's perfect for stowing tons of stuff!

This issue of Love Patchwork & Quilting should be available in the US and Canada in the next few weeks, and also features fun projects by the lovely Lynne of Lily's Quilts as well as Kerry and Penny from Very Kerry Berry and Sew Take a Hike, so make sure to check it out! Happy stitching to you all :)

Hello Betsy Travel Bag!

I'm super excited to tell you that the beautiful bag my sweet friend Kristi of Schnitzel and Boo made for me last year has officially become a pattern, the Betsy Travel Bag! How fun!


Beginning on April 1st, you can pick up the new pattern right here, or you can pre-order now! The wonderful folks at the Snuggly Monkey have put together a special hardware kit for the bag right here as well. Rebel Craft Media will be hosting a fun sew-along for the bag, starting on April 2nd, on their blog, which is a great way to work through a bag like this. If you do opt to pre-order the pattern, you'll get the materials list right away, so you can pull your items together for the sew along.


I can't say enough fantastic things about this bag - I'm so thankful that Kristi made it for me! It's got pockets for everything, a great long shoulder strap, and an awesome metal zipper to close the bag. I constantly take it to carry quilts and such when I'm out teaching. If you want to take a look at some other Betsy Travel Bags, check out the fun blog hop going on right now, which will help kick off the Sew Along!

P.S. - So sorry for the crazy long blog hiatus! Between QuiltCon, moving, and working on a big top secret project, I haven't had much I could share, but that's going to start to change really soon, hooray!
 hello

Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
