Oh hi, I’m Sondra!

I can’t wait TO help you Finish Fun, quilty things…fast!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet, where I talk about quilting, crafting, organizing, health, fitness, life and…all the things. But mainly quilting.

There was a time where I didn’t think I was going to write a blog any more. It’s a bit difficult to talk about, because in the world of blogging and social media, it’s always “best foot forward.” More and more I was After years of quilting, I have streamlined my process to include less “busy” and more of what I call my fun•fast•finish techniques. F3, for short. Today, my focus is on finishing what I start, using fast and easily repeatable techniques, and having fun along the way. I love the satisfaction of displaying my latest finish in my home or gifting it to friends or family, and I want that same satisfied feeling for you.

But it didn’t start out that way!   

I was the queen of UFOs (Unfinished Objects). My excitement in learning new techniques, buying the newest tools, and joining the latest classes and quilt alongs became too much. Too much fabric, too many ideas, too little time and a shrinking sewing and storage space. I was in overwhelm.

And that’s where F3 quilting came in to restore my quilt love!

Out of the Blue patterns are designed to be finished fast. I use fun repeatable techniques that, once learned, can be used over and over again. Techniques such as Speedy 8 (S8) Half Square Triangles, quilt-as-you-sew assembly, strip-pieced block assembly, are just a few I want to teach you.

Adding F3 techniques into my day-to-day processes really did save quilting for me. Life happens. We make grand plans for a full day (heck, a full weekend) of quilting, then somebody needs us. We have interruptions that eat into our creative time. Using F3 techniques helped me break the process into very small steps. Amazingly, five minutes matters. It doesn’t seem like it when thinking about it, but it adds up.
