I was having trouble sewing bags with my fancy (expensive) Pfaff, so I took a little shopping trip on Amazon.com and found this little baby (affiliate link)…
I highly recommend this machine for anyone who is looking for a bit of a workhorse that will sew through layers like a champ!
This baby is so affordable, I may buy another one just to keep at my shop.

Take a look at this adorable little quilt! I’m calling it the Little Princess Quilt. I just love the combination of pinks, oranges, and greens to bring out the girlyness of this quilt.
Handmade and quilted by me and now available in the shop!

Pretty excited about my first quilting community event! Being held in Seattle and open to any Modern Quilt Guild member. There will be lots of swag and fun people to meet. BIG Sew In on Saturday!!!
I’m starting a new series on Mug Rugs! These little rugs are a quick easy way to try out a new technic or pattern. This months theme is Independence Day for obvious reasons. The quilt patter is called Lemoyne star and it’s from a wonderful book called 500 Quilt Blocks by Lynne Goldsworthy & Kerry Green. I highly recommend this book. It chalked full of great quilt blocks new and old.
The Mug Rug measures 6″x6″, a little bigger than I had planned, but I’m new to making these, trial and error is part of the process!

Using scraps left from early 2015 quilts, I made this lovely little 2 1/2″ scrappy block quilt. It measures 43.5″ x 55.5″ and is perfect for a baby crib or crawling floor quilt.
It was a lot more fun than I thought and went together really easy, so glad I did it! Now I’m getting better at saving my scraps and hope to make one of these every 6 months or so.

Enjoy your day!
What a wonderful weekend! Full of sun, sun, and more sun! Made it a little hard to sleep last night and even harder to get out of bed this morning. But I love these cool mornings after a hot day!!!
I loved making this quilt. I thought it would be a lot harder than it was, but it was really easy and quick. I’ve been trying new FMQ techniques, some I just make up and some I’m trying to replicate. This one I just made up 🙂 It’s hard to see, but I just made a simple line with a loop through the center of all the geese, quick and easy and different.
This quilt is for sale in my Etsy Shop, please take a look. https://www.etsy.com/shop/StitchandBrew
Enjoy the day!
This quilt was so fun and easy to make, love the colors!
Welcome to my new blog! I’ve been quilting on and off for 25 years and I love the process, I love creating, and I love seeing my finished quilt.
This was a quilt I made a few years ago and I’m finally getting around to opening an Etsy shop. This quilt along with a few others are listed for sale. Here’s the link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/StitchandBrew
I’m excited to start on this new journey in my life. I work full-time as a management consultant and in my spare time I love to “geek” out by making quilts. I recently started my Etsy shop and have quilts and some fabric for sale.
My love of quilting is generational. My grandmother and mother have made HAND sewn quilts their entire lives. My grandmother has passed and my mom is no longer able to quilt, but their love of quilting was my inspiration. It gives me such peace of mind and joy to be able to sit down and create, bliss…
Thank you for stopping by!
