Rug Hooking? Yeah, rug hooking

So I am back from Spring Quilt Market in St Louis, MO where I shared some Studio 37 boothspace with fellow designer Sarah Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J . Here's my booth space replete with new quilts, my Getting to Know Hue BOM, my new patterns, and  . . .  WHAT? In the foreground, is that rug hooking? Yep, it is.     I was introduced to rug hooking when I visited the Fallbrook...IMG 0132 copy

Little Baskets Quilt Up Close with Sound Effects

  Using a fat quarter bundle from my On Plumberry Lane collection to make all the little baskets for this quilt was a delight.  As is typical for me, I usually jump right in and make a few blocks. Then it's time to go back and do a lot of cutting. My plan at this point is to now chain sew--vroom, vroom, vroom! Fire up that sewing machine! Go to the ironing board--press, press, press! Back to the sewing...OPL Fat Quarter Tower
