We are just bursting at the seams (hee hee) to show you the next block in the Mystery Sew Red Sew-a-long! This inspired-by-Cathedral-Window quilt block was designed by the wildly talented Saremy Duffy of Chicken Boots.
All about Saremy
Saremy Duffy is an extremely avid seamster with a business making and selling accessories for knitters, crocheters and others creative folks called Chicken Boots. All Chicken Boots products are made right here in the USA in Chico, CA, and we proudly carry them at Jimmy Beans. Saremy is passionate about knowing where the things she buys come from and tries to buy Made in US and handmade first—within reason financially. I bet what you really want to know, though, is why she chose the name “Chicken Boots” for her business. The Duffys have raised a lot of chickens and after a 1.5 year hiatus while they found a new home, they hope this year they will have chickens again. Saremy says she falls asleep dreaming about the Chicken Coop / Bunny Hutch she will build in the yard next to their pool once they're all settled in their new home. During all that time of raising chickens, they’ve called their boots that are worn to take care of chicken chores their 'chicken boots'. Their daughter was five when she coined the term and it stuck!
If you’re local to the Chico area, check out the public knitting group that Saremy hosts at the Chico Library each week. You can also keep up with all of her adventures on her blog (http://www.chickenbootsusa.com/blogs) or by connecting with her on Facebook. Don't forget your boots!
Saremy and Sew Red
Saremy’s Block for the Mystery Sew Red Sew-a-long!
Saremy was inspired to re-interpret the traditional Cathedral Window quilt block. She used fabrics from Luella Doss's Fowl Play collection - perfect for the creator of Chicken Boots! We love that her block can be assembled in many different ways, and can’t wait to see how you all choose to orient your own blocks! Click over to the Chicken Boots blog to find instructions!
