Anything Goes Monday

Welcome to Anything Goes Monday!

My name is Heather, and I have the honor of hosting Anything Goes Monday for Marelize today.  I am a mom to my (almost) 15 month old daughter, who loves to sew and quilt!  While being a mom takes up more of my time than sewing, sewing keeps me sane.  I have been known to take my Singer Featherweight on more than one vacation, because I can’t stay away from sewing that long 🙂

I usually have all sorts of projects on my to-do list, from piecing quilts, paper piecing, and designing patterns to sewing clothing for my daughter and myself.  Some examples of my projects are below.  If you like what you see, please follow my blog or check out my instagram @bobbinsandbullets!

Bottom Left: Spinnaker Quilt, Top Middle: Practice Lucky Stars, Bottom Middle: Starry Log Cabin, Right Middle: Baby Blazer, Bottom Right: January Lucky Stars

In addition to my personal sewing, I am a long arm quilter.  My Millennium can handle almost any quilt you can throw at it, so if you are wanting to reduce that stack of unquilted tops, please consider me!  

As an added bonus, if you contact me for long arm services and reserve a spot during the month of May, and mention you found me through Anything Goes Monday, I will take 15% off the long arm quilting fee!

I also have my first pattern up on Craftsy!  The Square Dance Block is a paper pieced block that anyone can do – whether you have paper pieced before or not!  My paper piecing tutorial for the Square Dance Block will guide you every step of the way.  The pattern for an 8 inch finished block is free this month.  In June, I will be publishing the full version of the pattern with multiple block sizes.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! If you are between projects, consider the square dance quilt. It’s a great way to ease in to paper piecing, and get a lot of practice without going crazy. It’s my project I go to when I want to relax because I have all the cutting done, so I can just sit and SEW!

  1. Nice to meet you Heather! Loved the pic of you stitching with your daughter on your lap — sewed with all 3 of mine on my lap at some point 35 years ago and I always take a sewing machine with me on vacation!!

  2. Hi Helen, thank you so much hosting this week. I am having a lot of fun visiting your blog and all the link-ups. I hope that through this link-up you’ll get a few new followers…
