Playing in the Crumbs in Champaign, Illinois! from Quiltville's Quips & Snips!

Say Hello to Miss Lilliana, or Lilly for short! And short she is!  She should be.  She is only 7 years old, and was our youngest student in yesterday’s crumbs class.  Here she is so proud of her trimmed up Maverick Star!  Good going, Lilly! A model student, I think all of us wished for a granddaughter just like Lilly who was here with her grandma to spend the day with us. She is so cute and

Grammy Squares Update from Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog

Hello Everyone,
I have to get back into the sewing room and make more Grammy Squares to go with these cute little hexie flowers.

My bright idea is adding a hexie flower border.......which adds months of time to this quilt.  It is all just pinned up on the design wall for now.  I see a vine in my future too.

 I planned on making three blocks a day in order to get this quilt made in this lifetime.

I'm short of my goal. 

How about three blocks a week?

I tried.

Ditty Bag & Boxy Pouch. from Sew Simple Life

The other day I made this ditty bag. I'd been meaning to make myself a new make-up bag. I had won $10 to MichellePatterns and used it to purchase the pattern. This is size medium. It's cute but I decided I'm going to give it to my teenager daughter for her own make-up.. or nail polish, or something.

Then yesterday I decided to make a boxy bag for myself. I'm always looking for ways to use my scraps and this ended up being the perfect project for that. I pieced a bunch of scraps together and ...

Aurifil July BOM from Lily Patch Quilts

I've been able to get a lot of sewing done lately. One of the things I was wanting to do this month is getting my Aurifil block done. While my family was away with church activities I sat down and finished these two blocks.

 The blocks were designed by Camille Roskelley. The center plus sign was supposed to be more prominent then the rest of the block. I was using what I had and wasn't thinking much of the color order but I still like my blocks. I ended up pulling another purple print from my stash to ...

Blast to the Past...Dad's memory quilt from MooseStash Quilting

Great dad's deserve great quilts.

Quilts with photos.

Hubby has always been a great dad, and having the boys help plan out his birthday surprise was so much fun.
Those were the days!

                           This is Fabri-Scrapping, from Sew Artfully Yours.

                                    Using Cindy Losekamps software.

                                  We planned a theme for each block.

Finding embroidery designs and buttons, to compliment each one.

This was a 2006 finish, and I have to say, that quilt has been on the back of our couch ever since. The photos are as clear today as they were back then. Not too bad for so many ...

Row by Row: Tomorrow's Treasures from Becca's Crazy Projects

This is my haul from Tomorrow's Treasures in Crofton, MD.  This is a great shop!  The ladies are all very helpful and genuinely excited about helping you find the best thing for your project.  I picked out these fat quarters along with my Row-by-Row plate and kit.  I love these little plates.  I'm going to have to figure out something awesome to do with them.  I'm still collecting.  I have only gotten to five shops but I've got all summer long to play.

Are you participating in the Row-by-Row Experience?  Do you like the shop hops?

Collecting... from Quilt-a-Daisy

I've been doing more collecting of fabric lately than cutting/sewing/quilting of fabric.  Considering how badly I'm itching to get's been hard to figure out WHAT to sew!  Anyways, while I work through that particular dilemma, figured I'd show you some of the recent bits and pieces I've been adding to my collection!

In June we took a little family mini-cation to western North Carolina and took a slight detour to Bless My Stitches Quilt Shop in Murphy, NC where I picked up:

a yummy bunch of chevrons, and the Jaybird Quilts ...

Catch Those Ideas! from Michelle's Romantic Tangle

If you've been reading my blog for long, you know by now that we're a homeschooling family. One of my pet peeves when it comes to curriculum is the writing instruction. I've seen too many books and curriculums that tell kids that there are certain steps you have to follow. I've also known a lot of authors and written a few novels myself, so I know for a fact that there's no absolute combination of brainstorming and outlining  and writing ideas on index cards that's the "right way" to write something.

I'm loving ...

Hexies Again from Quilts....etc.

Y’all are going to get tired of my posts this upcoming week – with just working on two projects it is more of the same – hexies and insanity – sorry! Yesterday morning it was so nice outside on the porch and it was so nice not to have to run to Little Rock once […]

MQG Michael Miller Challenge from ColorBar Quilts

So excited to share with you today my entry for the Modern Quilt Guilds Michael Miller Fabric Challenge.  The MQG gave members a fat 1/8th bundle of fabric to play with and we could add more Michael Miller print fabric or more solids from any manufacture.  I purchased more of the challenge fabric and added some couture cotton to the prints. 

I designed this quilt just by playing around with graph paper and color pencils.  I did not want to cut the fabric up to much as I wanted to make sure you could see the design on the ...

Aunt Ruthie's Farm Stand from Mid-Ohio Quilter

Yep Aunt Ruthie's Farm Stand is available in my etsy shop.

I first noticed it as quilt market. This was the best picture I could get.
I tried to get the attention of red rooster reps with no acknowledgement...I gave up.
A day after market, I couldn't get this fabric line out of my head.
I went online and found another Rep, Chris, and he set me up immediately.

I am so happy I didn't give up.

It really is a beautiful line of fabric.
It is different than any I have seen recently.
I am ...

Treehouse Textiles new shop from Focus On Quilts

I drove all the way to Mornington today to attend Treehouse Textiles open day – and I’m so glad I did – wouldn’t have missed it!!  2 friends were supposed to come with me but they both were unable to but that didn’t stop me from going.

The shop is just gorgeous – as is to be expected.  I think the photos speak for themselves.

Teacher's presents from Espritpatch

So today was finally the last day of term for the kids, the summer holiday has officially started and it will be very short with just under 6 weeks off. And of course, last night, I was frantically finishing the teacher's presents. I made some little key pouches from Heidi's tutorial (similar to the one I made last week for the sample swap at the Fat Quarterly Retreat). In total I made 10 of these little pouches: 1 as a trial that I kept for myself, 3 for the sample swaps, 5 for the teachers and 1 ...

Kite blocks...... from Exuberant Color

I decided to sew the kite blocks together since they were just my samples to test out the GO die.  I think I will put a stripe sashing between the blocks and a border around and make a table runner.  They are 8" blocks.

We are going to be making more preemie layettes at church sewing circle so I washed some new flannel.  I got this one on sale and they only had a yard of it.  I will probably make the extra small size gown from it.  I shared the pattern over a year ago here (scroll down to ...
