Hello friends! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. Here in the US was a holiday weekend, so I took advantage of the long weekend to catch up on computer work. As you have noticed, the blog has a slight new look and new name. To celebrate this transition I wrote my first pattern and I want to share it with you. To download please sing up to my newsletter. This pattern is super is super fun to make and it comes together very quickly (perfect for a weekend project ).

I would love to organize a sew along if you would be interested. Please let me know if the comments.

I’d love to see the quilts you make with this pattern, please tag me on Instagram @sundayandhoney #sundayandhoneypatterns

Hello friends, I’m very happy to share with you some exciting news. My blog will be going through some cosmetic changes in the next few weeks and with that a name change: SUNDAY + HONEY

I hope you like the changes once they go live and continue to visit my little blog. For a while both www.weekenddoings.com and www.sundayandhoney.com will direct to to my site…this has been scary but it is also nice to change and evolve.

PS. I’m writing a patternl for my log cabin baby quilt that will be available as a free download, would you be interested on testing the pattern? Please let me know in the comments.

Cotton & Steel Whole Cloth Quilt

I love all Cotton & Steel prints. They are just lovely. I’ve been treasuring this print for a while; its like a piece of art. I just couldn't get myself to cutting it. So I thought making a whole cloth quilt will be perfect. The fabric for the binding was he perfect match and it gives it such a pop of color. I really love how this quilt turned out.

This quilt will be available in my shop (opening very soon!).

Also coming soon a bit of redesigning of the site and a new name. Hoping to share everything with you in a short time.

Wishing you a wonderful week.

Textures

Last year I joined a creative group of quilters where quarterly we crate a small art quilt based on a chosen theme. Our group is called the Endeavourers and it is such a creative treat to see all the interpretations of each theme. This quarter the theme was Texture. While I was brainstorming ideas of how to execute this challenge, the  image of quilted texture came coming back to mind. As a quilter I’m always fascinated by the infinite number of quilting patterns and stitching techniques and how each variation creates a completely different texture on a quilt. So I decided to create sort of collage of stitches using various thread weights in the same color as the background, I wanted the color of the thread to blend in with the background and just and let the imprint of the stitches do the talking.

Such a fun project. Can’t wait to see what the next challenge will be

2019 Goals

fullsizeoutput_1a45.jpeg

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? I typically don’t. But this year I decided that I’ll make some resolutions regarding my crafty endeavors. I’ve been feeling at a cross roads for a few months deciding what direction I want to go. I want to challenge myself more creatively and attempt new things that I have been too timid or afraid to take one. I would like to share more tutorials and take your behind the scenes of my creative process. And the biggest one of all (and probably the scariest one) I’d like to open up a shop and sell some of the quilts that I make. I’ve been dreaming about this for a long time, but the fear of failure has kept me from going ahead and putting the plan in motion. It is interesting how we put ourselves limits for the fear for failing, so I decided to change the narrative and be more intrepid. I figure, If I try and I fail it will be better than to keep wondering what if?

So this year will be a year of new challenges, but I’m really excited.

Wishing you a wonderful week

Square in a Square Quilt.

Happy New Year friends! I hope you had a lovey holiday season.

In the midst of the business of the season I managed to carve some time for sewing and finished a few projects. One of them is this lovely quilt I made for my sister in law who just had a baby boy. The fabric in the center was my inspiration for this quilt. I think it is Dear Stella Organic Cotton (but I’m not really sure) I bought it years ago and I stashed it away waiting for the perfect project. Do you ever do that? hold on to a pice of fabric until it speaks to you? I tend to do that a lot.

I’ve been wanting to make an economy block quilt for the longest time, but lately I have been very into large scale blocks or one block quilts… so I set myself to work out the math and make a Square in Square quilt. And oh boy I’m so glad I did. I love this quilt so much. I don’t know what it is… the colors, the whimsical characters on the center or the combination of all. It is one of those quilts that just makes me happy to look at.

Also, I have been working a lot behind the scenes and setting myself some goals as to what direction I want to take my little blog in 2019. Please stay tuned for some great things coming up. Thank you so much for following along and I hope you will continue giving me your support. I really appreciate it.

Happy Holidays

Is there anything cuter than pugs wearing a Santa hat? I don’t think so… My beloved pugs Holly, Zoey and Mona are not much for wearing hats but a fun photo app helped me get them in the holiday spirit.

Wishing you a very happy holidays .
