Coins

and coins and coins!  Keeping busy getting started on some very simple stacked coin quilts.  I’m going to make two at once… One for a boy and one for a girl. I love working with so many fun, bright and bold fabrics! It makes me happy. And a gratuitous cat photo just ’cause.  She is […]

So many solids.

Finished up the top for the quilt I’m making my mother. All fabrics that she gave me to use.  Usually I work with many more patterns, but it’s great to sometimes have to work outside of your norm.  I’m happy with it! Using solids makes me think about shape and color so much more. Really […]

Another mail sack!

I was in a bit of a funk the other day and wanted to make something that would cheer me up.  What to do?  How about cut into some of your favorite fabric and make yourself a bag you know you love??  Done. Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile know […]

A stash overhaul.

All these stash posts over at Sew, Mama, Sew! had me ashamed. That’s right! I’m putting a face to the messy fabric out there!!  You’re out there too, right? I feel like we see so many photos of beautiful stashes, but that can’t be how it is for everyone…  All of us are creative types, […]

Babies on my quilts.

I couldn’t resist.  These photos have all shown up in the past couple of days… so it couldn’t be helped. I mean, really, TWO sets of twins!  Oh how I love to see the gifts enjoyed.

The Bushfire Quilt project

Tia over at Camp Follower Baby Lady is organizing a lot of quilts being made for the victims of the fires in Victoria, Australia. It’s such a quick and easy way for us to help out in our own way. She’s having people make wonky stars which I’d never done and is so much fun […]

Flora & Fauna Quilt all finished!

And now you know the name I came up with for the biggest quilt I’ve made!  I think that it’s perfectly fitting because there’s lots of both flora and fauna in the quilt.  And that’s it.  Don’t have to dig too much to get to the meaning! Ha! I have to say… I’m proud of […]

Starting new projects

Since I’m stitching on the binding of the huge improv quilt (I’m going to have to come up with a good name for it!) it was time to get started on a couple of new projects! First, I started some blocks for my mother’s quilt. 6 down, 29 more to go! I’m really enjoying making […]

Quilting

With my new visitors from Sew, Mama, Sew! I have been getting the same question quite a bit:  How do you do that “all over squiggly” quilting?  I do it on my normal little sewing machine, and you can do it too!  It’s called free motion quilting – and that pattern is called stippling.  I’m […]
