4 Favorites 4 Friday: Katy Jones
Today’s 4 Favorites 4 Friday feature is Katy Jones, who blogs at I’m A Ginger Monkey and is part of the Fat Quarterly team (and recently published author!) You can read Katy’s Sewing Summit bio on our teacher page.
What is a favorite sewing tip?
Cut your scraps up into useable 5″ charm squares or 2.5″ squares as you finish a project, it will give you an easily accessible stash of squares ready for last minute scrappy projects and makes storage so much easier!
What is a favorite project/s made by you?
I love my hexy MF quilt (which I’m currently doing a summer quilt along for over on the Fat Quarterly blog). It isn’t a difficult quilt, but gives me so much pleasure looking at it and snuggling under it.
I have so many favourites made by other people, it’s hard to pick just one. I do love this quilt by Megan of Philistine Made, and anything she does if I’m quite honest!
Wild card question: Do you have any advice for someone who is just starting out sewing & blogging?
Be yourself. Don’t try to be someone you think others will like, just be true to yourself and do what you enjoy. Make projects you like, use fabrics you like, let your personality shine through and people will love you more for it. And if they don’t – that’s their problem, not yours.
