Today’s first stop on the blog tour is 3 a.m. Inspirations, where Karen Gibbs talks about happy diversions from what she’s supposed to be doing and shows off her latest quilt projects. Her quilt Adirondacks combines quick corners, log cabin-style piecing, strip piecing and a unique block layout – something for everyone! Karen used Anthology Fabric’s Solid Batiks for Adirondacks.

Today’s second stop on the blog tour is Tia Curtis Quilts, blog home of designer Tia Curtis. Her Sunshine Pouch is the perfect quick and cool scrap busting project that’s not only fun but functional.
