My name is Sarah and I love quilts & sewing!
I remember my mother sewing in her bedroom and my sister and I on the floor practicing hand sewing and making little pillows for our dolls. I remember taking a summer class at one of the local high schools for the community to come and learn sewing. I even tried in college to make my sister a quilt for her wedding day (which is still in a box in the closet as a UFO – Unfinished Object). It wasn’t until I met my now husband’s mother who, when I met her, had a sewing machine on her kitchen table and a quilt in pieces on her table. She encouraged me to learn again and she helped me put together my first official quilt, which I gifted to my niece for Christmas. If was so small, it literally just laid on the top of her bed, without any room to drape down the bed. She still loved it!
I literally bought a sewing machine on Amazon while I was visiting her and it was delivered when I returned. The bug stuck. If you want to have a great relationship with your MIL, you quilt….as in my case. LOL.
Quilting is addicting.
I then made two full size “Minecraft” quilts for my nephews without a pattern and just using a picture of their favorite character from the game.
I started my blog as a creative outlet in 2017, when I became a stay-at-home mom. I began to share on my personal Facebook page all of the quilts and quilt blocks I just loved and before I knew it, I had people asking me to make them a quilt! Before long my little machine was wearing down and I started researching sewing machines and became a lover of the vintage Singer Featherweight. Now, I piece all of my quilts on a Singer Featherweight and even quilt my Tiny Quilts on them too! Notice I said “them”. Don’t tell my hubby.
Be sure to check out our FREE 2019 Back to the Basics Block of the Month Page! On the first of every month, I post step by step directions on how to make a new block. This year we have focused on building our skills back from making simple blocks. Be sure to join in and share your progress! Use the hashtag #mcclbom when posting! In December we will have 12 blocks that all measure 12.5″ unfinished ready to be pieced together for a great Sampler Quilt Top! For September, I will post the BOM on the 5th so you can come back and join in the fun!
We are also launching a 3-month & a 6-month subscription box, ready for Christmas delivery! Each box will have the latest fabrics & notions with a retail value of $60.00. Yours for only $45/month plus $6 shipping. You can sign up for the 3-month subscription box for $135. That’s a savings of $45! The 6-month subscription box is $270 with a savings of $90! The first box will ship December 16th – just in time for Christmas! Interested? Sign up for the monthly newsletter and you will be the first to know when sign up is available!
