Appointment After Appointment from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up by the time Patrick left. I had to get out the door for my dental appointment. I didn't know about this till two days ago when I got the reminder call. I was just one time, but they were behind time. So, I waited about 20 mins. Then I was there a good hour. Didn't think cleaning would take that long but it does. Afterwards went over to Safeway to get some sandwich meat and bread for supper.

Came home and really didn't feel like doing much.....Keep finding myself taking out ...

Make bag straps with leftover quilt batting from Cut Stitch and Piece

Apple Cider Market Tote aka The Winslow Market Tote I first saw this tote pattern in the 2018 issue of Make It! Patchwork. It was designed by Kathy Mack and was showcased on the Quilting Arts TV Episode #601. It was originally featured as the Winslow Market Tote and has since been renamed the Apple Cider Market Tote. The pattern can be purchased HERE. I haven't made many bags, but I

UFO Friday from Quilt Paint Create

Do you have UFOs?
I know a few quilters that don’t, but they are definitely the freaks of the quilting world. They must hang with the quilters that don’t have a stash (yes, they are out there).
If you need a little incentive to work on your UFOs, you can head over to Pat Sloan’s blog every Friday to see which UFO she is trying to finish. You can also post a picture of your UFO in process, but you can’t link back to your blog, website, etc. Last week about 90 people shared photos for ...

Split Hexies from RobynsPatch

What was I Thinking … Found some very old hexie blocks in the dark depths of the stash – perhaps they should have stayed there! Another blast from the past when making first attempts at exploring hand piecing, hexagons, weird … Continue reading

Celebration from Familypatchworks



Tonight is celebration evening.  We closed on the sale of our house today at 2:00pm.  While all this house clean up, moving and closing was going on,  I had a little medical issue, that could have been serious.  Test were run and about an hour after the closing, I was all clear.  No further treatment was needed.  So celebrating and relaxing is in order this evening.  Have a great week
and
Happy Quilting!

Tutti Frutti from Mel's quilting blog

 I finally quilted it!
I'm not sure if I did it justice, but I did it.
DD and I worked together on what she thought should be the quilting design.
It is custom quilted with swirls, straight lines, squiggles, and meandering.
Now to get the binding on it and see if I possibly can get it bound by Saturday guild meeting.

The Spice King from Happy Cottage Quilter



Elizabeth Camden has once again written a fabulous historical fiction in The Spice King. I absolutely loved her characters and the depth of their interaction.

Annabelle Larkin is determined to win a donation from the Delacroix plant collection. Fresh out of school in Kansas, she feels somewhat at a lose to be living and working in Washington DC. Working in the Smithsonian for only two months, she tries every way she knew to contact the elusive Gray Delacroix.  After writing two times to Gray, she refuses to give up, being the latest of in a long line of botanist who ...

Never a Dull Moment from Jo's Country Junction

This post has icky pictures in it…read at your own caution.

I got a call from Kalissa early this morning.  She said, “Did you see the picture I just sent you?”  I said no..and then I looked.  ewww!!!

She said Carver had come downstairs that morning before she did..and then next thing she heard was Carver screaming.  She hustled downstairs to see a very bleeding Carver and this…he had bit his tongue.  The thought is that he jumped down the last couple steps of the staircase and fell, biting his tongue.

After a call to his ...

Taking Shape from The Quilt Yarn

Definitely over-blogging on my funky Bird Quilt, however this is all I have been working on in the last week while on leave.

This is how far I got


The circles are probably the hardest part to get exactly into the two echo lines...a bit of  a headache at times as my piecing is not that great. The block should be exactly 8in, but of course, it is not, hence to fit 8 circles in an orderly way into the sashing is a bit of a challenge. I ended up not only drawing a centre line but also marked ...

Teri's Travels: The Quilters Hall of Fame from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

I (Teri) am on the road this month, traveling across the United States with my husband. We will be gone for a month, and thus far have followed the Lewis and Clark Trail (sort of), reaching the Pacific yesterday. Of course, like any avid quilter, a few quilt stops have been planned into our trip. The first was in Marion, Indiana. Yes, we were a couple of weeks too early for Celebration 2019, and the induction of Marianne Fons, Liz Porter, and Mary A. McElwain. But at least I got to explore the museum, housed in the historic Webster House ...

The Asian Meatball Report from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

They were delicious! I used the Asian Chicken Meatball recipe from Peace, Love and Low Carb. I followed the recipe exactly except I used one pound of ground turkey instead of two pounds of ground chicken (because Aldi had ground turkey and no ground chicken) so I used half as much of everything else. We...

No Scrap Left Behind - A Book Review from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

I was recently contacted by CT Publishing with the offer of a free electronic copy of Amanda Jean Nyberg's No Scrap Left Behind book in return for a review of the book.  They noted my blog was all about scraps - imagine that!





I quickly took them up on their offer as this book has been on my wishlist since it was released.

I was really pleased with how the book is organized.  It walks you through all the steps of using your scraps to create beautiful quilts - from scrap management to color selections.

I also like that the quilt ...

a day (off) in the life... from Charm About You

This is one of those random posts about good stuff and things I like. A little bit of what's been going on and sharing a day off + day out I had with my husband recently.


Still busy and still teaching! This beautiful vintage Jones, zig zag machine was brought to class and while we did have a bit of trouble because of the position of the needle and feed for a 1/4" seam, it did power through some piecing. A lovely machine, just look at that wooden base unit.

Also a fine vintage, my Nan turned 101 last ...

Antique Quilts for a Cause from Quilt & Textile Collections


It has been a while since I’ve written a blog, but I thought you might need a breather after the four days in a row with our new book Hidden Treasures Blog Tour. It is hard to believe that we are halfway through the year, which made me wonder if I’d left out any amazing quilts from previous articles. Because I can only have 4-5 photos in each blog, sometimes I must make hard choices on which gems to include. However, a review of the year revealed that I’d not only left out antique quilt gems, but ...

Where Do I Come From? from Priscilla's Workshop

As anyone who has read my blog entries before should know, my husband and I moved from Utah for a multitude of reasons but most involved politics. That still encompasses a multitude of complaints and oddly enough Trump has now begun to echo one of the complaints that both of us had about Utah.

We moved to Utah in 1991 at a time when their economy wasn't doing well and despite my serious objections to the move we went. We bought a white elephant property--a 10,000 square foot house that had been abandoned for a few years and ...

The Cost of Groceries from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I have never paid much attention to the cost of groceries. We buy what we need and if there’s something on my list, rarely do I let the cost keep me from getting it. Granted, most things I buy are reasonably priced. Things that are expensive, like brisket, prime rib, etc., I only buy on...
