You can’t build a house from one stick of lumber. You can’t make soup with a single potato. You can’t grow a lumberjack-style beard with a lone whisker. But you can sew an entire skirt with just one yard of fabric! This week I’m demonstrating a quick and easy way to construct a circle skirt or square skirt out of one yard of batik rayon. These skirts are a hit with my twelve-year-old daughter and they wash up great, too! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!

Love at first sight. You’ve seen it in the movies, but has it happened to you in real life? You’re strolling through the rows of your local quilt shop, when all of a sudden, a fantastic new precut catches your eye. The colors. The prints. It’s almost too wonderful to be true. My Steps & Stones tutorial features a great new fat quarter bundle, “Gleaned” by Carolyn Frielander for Robert Kaufman. Truth be told, I fell in love with this fabric long before this quilt began to take shape. Click HERE to see how I transformed those little pieces into a cool, modern quilt!
