I've been busy cleaning and sorting my sewing room so I can actually get to everything in here, especially my book shelf. I pulled out all my vintage embroidery and stitchery books. So much inspiration in each of these.

At the start of the year I made the decision to change by business name over to Kate Henderson Quilts. It wasn't a hard decision, it perfectly describes what I do. With a name change I really needed a new logo. Lucky I know an excellent graphic designer (Jeff at Bridgetown Design and Print).
Here it is!
Jeff also designed these fantastic business cards with quilt blocks on the back.
Eva has been busy designing new quilts with them.

I'd originally planned to carve a tree or leaf stamp the other day. I was sketching ideas when I decided to draft a paper piecing pattern instead. I had a quick google for EQ7 tutorials, found this one and had this is what I came up with. A winter tree.

I'm trying to finish some of the WIPs in my sewing room. (It's getting a little crowded in here). So I turned my Everglade mini quilt into a cushion. (Pattern is Everglade by Carolyn Friedlander).
I just wanted it finished so I didn't even worry about batting and quilting. I just made some piping from the same fabric I used for the batting, followed the tutorial for the backing from Sew Mama Sew and it was done! Onto the next WIP.

It's been a while since I caved a stamp and did some printing, but I recently dug through the cupboard and found my supplies to have another go. I bought a new journal and found some space in my sewing room to keep everything out so when I have an idea I can try it out.
I carved some very simple quilt blocks so I can stamp out some mini quilts.
