SBCC Day 6 {Pleasant Home}


Welcome to Day 6 of creativity.

Finishing up my AWESOME board of creative bloggers is Jodi of Pleasant Home. I “found” Jodi through a Pinwheel Baby Quilt pattern she wrote for Moda Bake Shop. In fact, SHE is the main reason I’ve fallen in love with quilting. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know this ‘neighbor’ of mine (our states are joined at the hip) over the last couple years and she quickly turned into my friend. She is a crazy talented sewer, an encouraging online presence and just as special as that cherry on top of the sundae!

Here’s a little more about Jodi in her own words::

I started blogging in 2006 and have loved every minute of it. I cannot even begin to tell you the awesome experiences I’ve had because of blogging. I have met some wonderful people whom I may never meet in person, but have felt an instant connection with and call them my friends. 

Along with blogging I love doing a little bit of everything. I flit as my mom call’s it, from one thing to the next. When I’m not blogging, I love to garden, sew, quilt, clean, organize, take naps, read children’s literature, take pictures, go for Sunday drives, paint, research my family history, run, walk, exercise, email, look at magazines, read my favorite blogs, discover new favorite blogs, make lists, cook, and bake. And in one week I might do them all! 

I’m thrilled to be participating in Andrea’s Spring Board Event. Andrea is one awesome seamstress and one of those people I count as my blogging friends. I hope you like the little project I’ve put together for you… Happy Spring everyone! 

Both Jodi and I have been blessed with husbands that are very talented wood workers {I know, how lucky are we?!?}. You’ll want to go take a closer look at how {together} her and her husband created a beautiful studio for Jodi to create in. It’s not an enormous space, but every inch has been thought out and planned to make it work as if it was.

And if that wasn’t enough she is continually coming up with wonderful tutorials which she offers up {for FREE} to her readers. I can’t tell you how many table runners I’ve made from her tutorials. I even wrote up additional directions to one of her pattern to create a full “Modern Pinwheel Table Runner” front AND back.

SO … what did Jodi create? Here’s a peek and description …

When I saw a bolt of burlap sitting on the fabric store shelf, I knew I had to incorporate it into my project for the Spring Board Collaboration! It was the perfect compliment to the other materials Andrea {and the Fabric Shoppe} sent.

So SPRING on over to Pleasant Home to see her full project!



  1. I have SO enjoyed seeing what each person made with their bundle. This was a fantastic idea! Seriously…love it.

  2. Andrea: I’ve really enjoyed this series. I’m sure that it was a lot of work to organize and coordinate everything, but it was great! Thank you! Tricia

  3. I just found this series (and your blog…new follower!) and have SO enjoyed seeing what everyone made. I really, really love this tote! Super cute!
