Design Challenge : Stephanie at Quarter Incher

Hey y'all!  I am really excited to introduce a blogger to you today as part of our Design Challenge Series. I "met" Stephanie through our Club Medallion BOM (she's been making a super awesome quilt with the PDF subscription!).  She's got a great sense of color and has an awesome project to share with you!  I asked Stephanie to tell us a little about herself and here's what she said ...

Hi everyone! My name is Stephanie and I blog over at Quarter Incher. I'm a native to the north San Diego area and can't bring myself to move! I promise I'm not too spoiled! I'm married to a wonderful man and have a spunky little girl who keeps me on my toes. I'm currently pregnant and due with a baby boy next month! I've been sewing for a little over 10 years with a gap in there somewhere. I learned most of my sewing skills from my mother. She's been quilting for over 20 years and has become my quilting buddy. It's been an awesome journey since I've started blogging. I'm always learning new techniques and meeting new people! It's been really fun so far!

What is your favorite sewing tool or notion? 
Currently, I'm loving the Clover Hera Marker! It's amazing at marking up quilting lines or Half-Square Triangles.

What kind of machine do you use? 
I use a High Speed Straight Stitch Brother Nouvelle 1500s and love it. It doesn't have all the fancy things the new machines have but it's fast. Faster is always better in my world.

What is your favorite color combination? 
What isn't my favorite color combo? I use so much color in my projects because it's too hard to pick only a few!

Check out Stephanie's version of our Club Medallion BOM! Read more about her progress here.

What is your favorite sewing supply/room organizational tip? 
I like to organize my scraps by size first then color. I use my scraps in 90% of my projects so they rarely ever get sorted into the color category. It's a good idea to keep them organized though.

Stephanie chose a great bundle for her project!  Run on over to see the tutorial for these super fun baby blocks!

Bundles available here while supplies last. 

Happy Sewing! :-)

Hey there friends!  

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Lazy Sunday QAL with us! There are a lot of great quilts I've seen on Instagram that are both finished and in the works!  (Including mine, which is nearly finished.  We've had a few bumps in the road around here recently, but I am looking forward to get my sewing machine going this week after a month of no sewing!) 

It's time to announce the winner from the Linky!  Drum roll, please ... 

Congrats to Lisa Marie!  You can see her great quilt here.  Lisa - please email us so we can get your gift certificate code to you!

I love how fast and easy this quilt comes together and that it looks great in every collection!  Lee of May Chappell has a winner with this pattern for sure!
