Stef from Blackberry Quilts has been working on a couple projects using Licorice Fizz. The first one, which I am in love with (like most everything else she does) is this chevron quilt, which I got to hold in my hot little hands this weekend. And check out her other patterns too–tons of baby quilts and simple patterns for beginners. And we are selling a kit for it on Etsy here.
I met Lindsay at The Sewing Summit where she was hosting a session on her Creative Journey. She has a wonderful blog with great projects and tutorials called, guess what, Lindsay Sews! And, she also has another blog, Craft Buds. AND she is an editor at CraftFoxes, a social networking site for crafters. So she is an official writer, editor, as well as a crafter and it shows in the quality of her content AND she has been published all over the place. Check it out…
This cool apron she made using Licorice Fizz is a hot-pad apron–its built in! The pattern can be found in the book “Fabric-by-Fabric: One-Yard Wonders” by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins. So very cool, I like.
Michelle Kitto of Urban Spools whipped up this bag in classic fashion before Quilt Market. Her workmanship is always amazing, and I would love to take some classes and hang at her Urban Spools Sewing Lounge if it was in my neck of the woods. Alas it is in Dallas–lucky for some of you! I met Michelle at the Fabric 2.0 party at Quilt Market 2011, and we met up again when she visited San Francisco, and of course this year again at Quilt Market 2012. She really took the plunge opening up the sewing Lounge, offering classes and long arm services, and its been fun hearing about its growth.
