Sewing along with Maine

I’m missing the Maine sew-in this week. We decided flying up there just wasn’t something we were comfortable doing right now with the surge in COVID cases but I’m sewing along from home. The theme this year is the 3 yard quilts we’ve been working on and I got started Monday afternoon piecing this Unicorn Stepping Stones top. Pattern is from Fabric Cafe. That pink is not nearly as overwhelmingly bright in person!

Here’s a close-up of the unicorn fabric.

Even though I wasn’t in Maine with the others I had LOTS of company – there was a steady stream of deer walking by and peering in my windows!

After Keith went to bed, I came back down and loaded and quilted my Turtles – another one of my 3 yard quilts. It just so happens to be the Stepping Stones pattern too. Pantograph is Beaded Curtain and I think this is the first time I’ve quilted this one. I’m going to try it smaller next time but I like the curvy quilting on this top.


  1. Those 3 yard patterns are so quick to make! I used that same cute unicorn fabric for pillowcases for the daughter of a niece in Australia. She loved them.

  2. Oh what a beautiful site those deers are. I would be leaving corn, apples and peanut butter out for them. We live across the road from some woods and put out food for them every night just in hope of getting a glimpse of them. And no we are not hunters, just lovers of nature.
