Sew Mama Sew - Welcome Aboard!
I'm a 50 something gramma who loves to sew, applique (with cotton and wool), and free motion quilt!
I live in the Finger Lakes Region of NY, USA and I just love Songbirds!!
I recently created "Redbird Quilt Co."
a design, instruction and free motion quilting adventure.
On the blog you'll find * free patterns and tutorials * along with ramblings about sewing and applique, favorite threads and tools, and other quilting musings.
Every now and again I'll share a new quilt pattern on the blog - available for purchase on the Redbird Quilt Co. web site or my Craftsy store.
I hope you enjoy your visit.
Here is a sampling of my designs that are all *free tutorials or patterns*:

For the Sew Mama Sew giveaway I want to share a copy of my latest pattern - "Spring Basket".
Spring basket is an 11" x 16" mini quilt made with Wool pieces stitched to a Cotton background.
The pattern is perfect for a beginner. It includes all of the templates and instruction required to complete the project.
If you've never worked with wool, you will LOVE it -- you don't need to turn the edges of wool under -- once woven wool is washed and dried the edges won't fray when cut.
You can read more about Spring Basket on my blog post by clicking here.
You can see a review of Spring Basket on Carrie's blog by clicking here.
