When Dorie was looking for bloggers for the blog hop, I jumped at the chance. I ordered the book and as soon as it came was inspired in new ways to quilt. I love free motion quilting, especially when there are very few starts and stops involved. Dorie does a great job guiding you through the process of each design and makes it easy to follow. I had a quilt top which I completed at a sewing retreat 3 years ago (embarrassing…I’m sure none of ya’ll have any of those) and still needed to be quilted.
I’m glad that I hadn’t quilted it yet, because it was the perfect quilt to practice new designs on from the Making Connections book. The quilt itself is rather busy so I decided to try one of the more simple designs in the book (connecting curves with petals) and I absolutely love how it turned out. What do ya’ll think?
Thank you Dorie and C&T Publishing for allowing me to be part of this blog hop!

Thanks for stopping by our blog and hope everyone has a great week!
Howdy to all of our new guests arriving at our website since the launch of the Fat Quarter Shop Aqua Thread Cutter edition. We are so excited to have partnered with FQS and bring ya'll a fun aqua Thread Cutter!
Since you many of you are new to us and our Thread Cutter, we thought we share a demo video showing you how the Thread Cutter works while chain piecing. It can be used for many things, which we will show throughout the year but we created it out of necessity for chain piecing.
Enjoy and have a blessed weekend!

Toy Pouch Tutorial
We are so excited, and a little nervous to start our video blog! Each week we will post a new video featuring a different tutorial or technique. So if ya'll have any specific requests/ideas for our next videos please comment below what you want to see and we will try to cover them all throughout the year.
Up this week is a tutorial for a Toy Pouch. Everyone knows a cute kiddo that could use a toy pouch to take their favorite toys everywhere with them! My son is a busy boy and needs to have stuff to keep him busy when we are out. I made him a bunch of toy pouches and they have been a life saver!
For a complete list of SUPPLIES you'll need for this toy pouch, please hop over to Thermoweb's blog.
*Please keep in mind that this is our first time filming and editing a video tutorial, so hopefully it's not too terrible! And I promise they won't all be this long, I wanted to introduce our new video blog and there are quite a few steps for this pouch. We hope you enjoy!
