Crocheting Day from Quilting My Way

Today started out walking in the cold. It wasn't slippery, so we walked around 7:30 this morning.

When I got home, Charlie was still in the garage, which was unusual for her. I went to see how she was doing, and she was still sleeping. Petted her, and she stood up, but didn't look good at all. She meowed at me, and I picked her up. Brought her into the house. She tried to eat, but couldn't. She would only walk about 4 steps, go back to the food, without eating. Laid there for awhile. Then ...

New Nine-Patch from Gayle Bong Quilts Too

Our 10" of snow melted within 4 days and now it is just cold and rainy. Still good weather for quilting. The cats are getting along fine and rather enjoy chasing each other around a bit every morning. They aren't as much of a distraction now so I was able to get my new 9-patch quilt done. Okay, the top anyway. I still go with "The quilt is finished when the top is done".

  It's about 100" square. A bit generous for my queen bed so I don't plan on adding any borders.  I admit I kinda ...

Fiber Tuesday 37 from The Quilting Room with Mel

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  I survived Thanksgiving!!!  It was such a great break that I completely forgot today was Monday until Oui Crochet sent me a reminder.  So be sure to tell her thank you!  I spent from Thursday evening on sewing and cutting on Christmas presents.  I'm so in my element when I get to be near fabric.  Yesterday, I decided to tackle Bonnie Hunter's  mystery quilt.  I'll be two weeks behind by the time I get the fabric so Saturday and Sunday will be used to get caught up on that.

Fiber Tuesday Link Party for all fiber crafts
I even was ...

Make-A-List Monday - The Christmas Season Begins! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

And so it begins - the Christmas season is officially under way! Turkey day is over, the decorating has begun - and I refuse to think about how many days are left until Christmas!  I just put my nose to the grindstone and keep working on my long list of projects....

So let's see how last week's list went...

1.  Make a window seat cushion for a friend.
Done!  But of course, I forgot to take a picture of it.  Let's just say it looked really great in her window seat!

2.  Start another commission quilt for ...

Hello!! from A Quilting Sheep

Hello, friends! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Ours was nice and quiet. I like them that way. =) 

I did get a bit of sewing done during the long weekend. Do you remember this top I made in September? I had set it aside to let it marinate. I needed to think about how I wanted to finish it. 

Today, I took another look at it and in a very short amount of time, it morphed into this darling quilt top. Perfect for a little boy. =) Now to figure out what fabric to use for the back and ...

Lemonade from Quilting Solutions

When life serves you lemons, make lemonade.  What a concept for life and for quilting.  If you hadn't guessed it yet, I am a flea on a hot stove, except when I am hiking (when I am really slow!).  My excitement and anticipation sometimes get me into trouble when I enter my sewing room and plow forward with determination.  That is why my faithful readers get to vicariously walk through a lot of obstacles on my blog.  I try so hard to achieve perfection, but remain quite good at making mistakes.  However, I usually am able to figure out ...

Birthday Month Part 4 & Conclusion from Quilting in the South

Nov 26:  It is hard to believe that Birthday Month is coming to an end.  Today I got another AU ornament.  Initially I decorated the bedroom with them but on Iron Bowl Saturday Eric used them to decorate our front door to ward off evil Bama spirits.

Nov 27:  My gift on this day was a pair of AU tights for me to wear on my birthday.  I was quite concerned as tights have never been my friends.  However I have lost enough weight that they fit great.

A Fun Surprise for Me! from Grey Cat Quilts

I participated in the Trunk Full of Quilts digital trunk show/link-up, hosted by Soma of Whims and Fancies. Soma was generous enough to line up some prize packages for participants, and I won! It’s so rare that I even try to win any give-aways on quilt blogs, that it was a huge, and very pleasant, […]

Twilight Trellis in McCALL’S QUILTING (September/October 2015) from IVORY SPRING


Hello Friends, I hope you have had a blessed Thanksgiving weekend!  I took a few days off to spend with my little family, and we had a sweet time together.  I told you I would be doing photo shoots of my featured magazine quilts after my most recent trip, and I had been.  First up, we have Twilight Trellis that was featured in the September/October 2015 issue of McCall’s Quilting.


I love this quilt!  It is made with Chambray Rose fabrics from Windham.


A big reason I love this quilt is because it is a simple-to-construct quilt, and ...

Quilting with Minky from Free Motion Quilting Adventures

I'm quilting away on my niece's quilt whenever I can. Because this sweety needs a quilt from her auntie, doesn't she?

It's a bit hard to see the quilting on these pretty prints, but it's the feathered flower from my latest video post.

The new thing I'm doing with this quilt is backing it with a minky-type fabric. So far it's working well. It's pin basted pretty securely, but I do have to watch the minky edges to make sure they're not curling under and getting stitched to the back. I ...

Boots Finished from Tim Quilts

I finished hand quilting the boots quilt today.


I started it in mid November.   Please don’t say I am fast :(

It might seem like it went fast but I have worked on it night and day …..over 150 hours.

Here are some pictures (click pictures to enlarge)

My hands need a break.    I think I’ll play with the machine for a day or 2

I forgot to post that my rose quilt will be at AQS Quilt Week in Phoenix Feb 11-14

What Color is Your Snowball? from Crafty Sewing and Quilting

If a snowball had color, mine would be BLUE! 

I created a Layered Snowball for the Focus Through the Prism Challenge this month.  We were to be inspired by the Snowball Quilt Block.

I named it: "My Blue Snowball"

Flipping it over to see the backside.

I really had fun with the quilting on this one!

Wiggle Lines in a Spiral,
Wavy Lines,
Horizontal Wiggle Lines, 
and Wavy and Wiggle Lines combined!

I stitched in my name and the year.

I really can't believe the 7 quilt ...

Thanksgiving Day and then it's Advent! from With Strings Attached

Thanksgiving dinner preparation began Tuesday with "that" cranberry relish.  Those who listen to Morning Edition on NPR know that it's Mama Stamberg's Cranberry Relish.  Susan Stamberg repeats the recipe every year.  Here is the  2015 version.

I discovered the recipe about 1991.  My colleague Pam came into the library saying she'd heard a great recipe and story on the car radio. She quickly copied the directions on a catalog card and made a photocopy for me.  I still have the photocopy in my recipe box. (Recipe box? That's a story for another post.)

Years later Stamberg ...

Merry...Merry & bright... from Threads On My Socks

Making some Merry!   Ruthie, Ruby & Rita Reindeer

I found a cute pattern in my travels and just had to make it! Rachel Reindeer by SisBoom. You can find it in the SisBoom Shop, in the Pattern section, Free Download.

I decided to get all my scrappy pieces together and make these. They are a mix of all sorts & 1 1/2" squares. The Ruby hiding in the back there....was really small scraps....not much of that collection left.

Merry...Merry.....& Bright!

& The backs......two in a Christmas fabric from Joann's & the middle is Ruby again ( by Bonnie & Camille ...

itsy,bitsy,teeny & tiny from Threads On My Socks

I'm working on a new project tonight and snipping teeny,tiny flowers from scraps of fabric, to make teeny, weeny stamps. My itsy, bitsy letters need them you see, so that I can send letters off to those I love.

This is such a sweet mug rug pattern from The Patchsmith.  It's called Christmas Delivery and you can find it, in her Craftsy Store. There are two versions to make and I chose the one above for my first. The second has a post box and I'll be cutting that out next.

I haven't even gotten ...

Mystery Monday Link-Up! Allietare, Part 1! from Quiltville's Quips & Snips!

Oh, I love this part of our Mystery process!

Today I get to see what YOU are making with your clues!

This photo was sent in by Connie during yesterday's Quilt-Cam showing her completed step 1 units.

Great job, Connie!

Our Monday Link-Ups will happen every Monday while the Mystery runs and then after 30 days or so  past reveal we will do ANOTHER Link Up to see how quilts are coming.  Then perhaps another 90 days past reveal we can do a final one.

That said, I want to reiterate that the mystery is NOT a race!  You ...

Oh Deer! Two Baby Quilts from Red Pepper Quilts

Work in Progress. Two baby quilts - just for fun. I mean, who doesn't like making baby quilts? They're quick and easy, but still allow for fabric and color play. What's more, these two baby quilts were made to a specific size so that I could use up two large pieces of scrap batting. Don't waste a thing. And just in case your curious about some of the fabrics that I have used: Buck

Another Old Photo from Bunbear Quilts

Are you tired of photos yet?  This is my Great Grandfather's family.  He is standing up on the left.  There were 9 children in this photo.  Not all lived to adulthood.  I actually knew several of his brothers and sisters.  Pretty cool, huh?

I would like to get a professional copy made of the two old photos.
