An archive of sewing tutorials and inspiration


Sprout, Berry, Peapod, Pacific…Swimming in Kona!

Today I began working on a quilt I have been planning for quite some time. Thanks to the folks at Robert Kaufman for making this quilt possible! I don't wan't to give you too many details yet, but here are some pictures of what I have been working on today! Lets just say at this point I could probably name every single KONA color with my eyes closed :)
