Welcome to My Blog!
Hi! I'm Laura Sapko, designer and quilter. I'm so glad you could stop by! This blog is all about quilting, raw edge appliqué and thread painting.

I’m still waiting for a shipment of several of the colors… And then there’s always another quilt shop tour in July! So CAL Quilt Shop Tour here we come! . . . @katja_marek @tulapink #newhexagon #ilovehexies #hexielove #handsewn #ilovecolorSuch fun little piles of pieces for my summer hand piecing enjoyment! 🧡💙💚💗♥️ It does however take quite some time to get all the fabric starched , cut, and marked for 8 hexies in each pile 😂 🤪 3 down and at least 12 - 15 more piles to go... and that doesn’t include the background hexies... thinking about gray for those. But who knows...I may go for solid colors. I think I have until next summer to decide that! 😂😂😂😂 . . . @tulapink #newhexagon #ilovehexies #hexielove #handsewn #ilovecolor #quilter #quilt #quiltingAre these cute blocks or what? 💚💗🧡💙 getting my go anywhere handsewn project ready for going everywhere this summer!
