This is a little baby quilt made from the double gauze cotton in my upcoming collection for Kokka, Framework. I won’t be at Quilt Market, but I’m sewing a few things and also have some very nice volunteers who are helping me.

I thought I’d share a few links to get you inspired today.

Craft in America: Industry, an interview with the PBS Craft in America series producer, Carol Sauvion over on Etsy’s blog.

Why do you sew? blog post with inspiring comments over on Colette Patterns.

Miss Matatabi has a new group of makers posting to her blog with tutorials and inspiration. Some great ideas for double gauze cotton.




Are you familiar with Daphne’s beautiful Etsy shop, Octopurse? She generously made some bags from my Garden collection for Quilt Market, which sadly were lost or damaged in the mail. But you can see the photos she took above and below. They are such pretty bags! I won’t knock the USPS because this is the first time this has happened to either of us, but I wish it wasn’t for this package! Maybe it will turn up.


And below are some other bags she’s made with my fabric, for sale in her shop now! I especially love the wooden handles. Her bags are perfectly made and very pretty. Go get one!
