I found a lovely new space via Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts – who is rejoining the bloggy world after she thought she was finished – so glad she’s back!!  I’ve followed her blog for a few years now, and have learnt sooo much from her about quilting.  She’s been blogging for about 3 1/2 years, and she has provided a wealth of inspiration and guidance for the quilting world!

She’s recently posted her latest bird quilt, which is stunning, as usual.  If you look at the picture she’s posted, you’ll notice little birds hanging from her chandelier – perfectly matching the quilted theme – and you’ll also find a link to the bird pdf pattern in her post.  Well…I clicked and was taken to the world of Spool, a lovely place that reminds me a bit of Purl in Philadelphia…instead of New York.

Spool Sewing boasts a blog, online shop, and a schedule of classes at their base in Philadelphia.  There are several freebies in their bloggy section – so go take a look!

I found a new toy tool!!  Its a project creator that lets you choose your favourite Moda fabrics and patterns and put them together into a visual masterpiece {like the above}!  Its sooo great!  I know its probably a ploy to get me to show Moda more love…but…well…its working!!  I am such a sucker for visual aids!  I don’t have any quilting software {and don’t plan to anytime soon} so this is really great!  I have such a hard time figuring which colours will work from different fabric lines when looking online.  So, there we go!  Go on over to Moda Fabric Matcher to start your own little project folder…and have fun!!

{As you can see, I’ve squeezed in a little turquoise here and there…ok…so I’m a little attached to that particular shade…so sue me…!}
