Fiber Tuesday 140

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  How was everyone's week?  We are freezing here!  The windchill in the morning is supposed to be around -20.  I am thankful that I don't have to get out in it but I know others will have no choice.  On cold days I spend a lot of time with my sewing machine and hot tea or coffee.  I have to go out to the garage to get to the basement so I need the warm drink to help me recover from those 30 seconds.  I know, I am a wuss when it comes to the cold.  I'm already planning my move to Texas unless one of you wants to house me now.

Ohio Star Quilt Block

I wanted to do something for the members of my Facebook group and they picked to do a block of the month in 2018.  We will be doing 12 star blocks in three different sizes this year.  I wanted to give everyone the opportunity to participate who wants to so the first block is going here on the blog.  We are starting with the Ohio Star quilt block.  It's super simple to make and is stunning when done.

Temperature Quilt 2018

I have seen my knitting and crochet friends making temperature afghans for yours.  I've always wanted to do one but really wanted it to be a quilt.  I have looked to see if anyone was doing a temperature quilt along but I couldn't find one.  So I played with some ideas and I came up with my own idea for a temperature quilt that will include the high temp and the low temp for each day.

Join me as we make a temperature quilt to document the highs and lows of 2018.

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  How was everyone's week?  We have started a new year so I am sure you all have been getting back into your studio spaces creating up a storm.  I hope that the time off has renewed everyone's creative juices.  I know it has done me a world of good and I am ready to create all year and hopefully inspire all of you.

Octagon Bowl Cozies

After two and years of making bowl cozies, it was time to do an update.  I thought about just redoing that original blog post but so many people like the basic square cozy and the directions are sound even if the photos aren't the best.  The thing is after making 100s of the octagon shaped bowl cozy we've figured out an easier ways to do it and with the technology, we can share our new templates with you.

The bowl cozy is the perfect way to warm things up in the microwave but no need to have a plain square, make them octagon.
