If you haven’t tried paper piecing a quilt block, you may be surprised that it isn’t as difficult as it may seem.  Here is a video that really helped me understand what I was doing. This paper pieced heart quilt block would be a great one to try for a Valentine’s project.  Found at Craft Couture by TC, you could use it as an accent for a quilt or in smaller projects like place mats, kitchen decor, or even just framed with an embroidery hoop.  So cute!

Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to finally learn how to sew?  For me it would be enough to to have the fabric, love the fabric, pet the fabric, look at the fabric, but never use the fabric.  Some fabric is too pretty to touch!  If you are just getting started then you might appreciate this huge compilation of basic sewing supplies and sewing needs I found at Pick Up Some Creativity.  Hop on over to find fully illustrated lists of basic necessities you need to build up your tool box.

Are we springing ahead too quickly by thinking of coordinating fabrics for spring projects?  I don’t think so.  Spring is my favorite season and in these cold months I like to keep dreaming of warmer days!  This pretty bundle of fabrics put together by the gals at Fabricworm will have you ready for and thinking about spring even in these icy months.
