Shop Updates

Published on October 26, 2015, in Daily Life.

Greetings and sorry for such a long absence from the blog. If you have been following me on Instagram or Facebook you may have seen that I added a new role to life this Summer, mommy! I’ve had to scale back my sewing time a lot so unfortunately I can no longer offer custom listings for bags. I was recently able sew some rockets for BlytheCon Chicago and hope to be able to periodically list bags here and on Etsy.

Also, there have been several messages asking to buy yardage from my fabric stash gallery which is very puzzling. I’ve removed the stash page since it was only there to help people chose fabrics for custom orders. None of the stash has ever been for sale or had prices listed but it is the only thing I can think of that would make people think I sell fabric. If you’ve seen something that says the fabric is for sale let me know so I can track down how to fix it. There may be a destash soon (Mr Babyman is getting the sewing room so will need to downsize) but that will probably be on Instagram.

Back in February, the Modern Quilt Guild announced their next fabric challenge. The challenge was sponsored my Michael Miller Fabrics and features their Petal Pinwheels fabric line. We at Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild took a poll of who wanted to participate and received the six challenge fabrics to pass out those participating.

Now even before we received the fabrics I set to work on designing my challenge idea.

Now when the fabric arrived I had a problem. The green fabric from the initial posting about the challenge wound up to be the orange colorway of the same print. Well I had things based one four main colors…and now I had five. Whew, a solution was found though and things progressed.

From slabs of each color…

To…well…to a setback in the form of a rotary cutting mishap (kids be careful out there!)…

To using glue basting and paperless paper piecing techniques…

And eventually with much crying over the spiral quilting we come to the end product. I dub thee Pinwheel Spinwheel, a 55″ square quilt make nearly entirely of Michael Miller fabrics. I did have to sub in some white Kona when I ran out of the Cotton Couture white. Quilting was done in 50 wt Aurifil in light gray. I first quilting in a spiral from the center of the pinwheel then finished out with my favorite free-motion doodle. I also added a “Pinwheel” in free-motion in the lower left corner. I’ve done a word like this on three quilts now and I think I like the new tradition.

Blythe Rocket Reservations are Open!

Published on February 14, 2014, in Shop.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Blythe Rocket Reservations are now open. The ‘store’ tab up at the top will take you there. If you have any questions just let me know.

In other news prep has begun for BlytheCon 2014 being held in Seattle in August. Are you going? What would you like to see from SewPixie there? Non shop wise I’ve got at least four quilts on the go and am in full swing as this year’s secretary of the local Modern Quilt Guild.
