Quilt Day! from Dora Quilts

I did shovel snow yesterday.  Lots more came and lots blew away.  Here's what we are left with this morning; a lot of little snowflake siblings are joining this. Still no mountains in sight.  Happy to be inside, safe, warm, and with a lot of choices for hot meals and beverages! Albuquerque is claiming they experienced their highest single-day snowfall since records were started in 1931.  Far

BOS Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival & The Jester's Folly from Sewing & Quilt Gallery

Thursday morning started with a bang -- a good sort of bang.  No, make that an awesome bang. Picture this, it is 6am, and I just have my coffee.  The rest of the house is asleep.  I went to my computer to check up on things before I went to quilt on a very time-consuming Baltimore Album quilt.  I knew that this was the opening day for Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, but I also knew they were getting a snow storm, and the usual people I might know going, were not going to be there until Friday.  News tends to filter slowly ...

Mosaic wall update from Field Trips in Fiber

Time to check in on the mosaic wall. I have 3 more sections done to share with you today.

Feb 21 beer mosaic

This one is my absolute favorite so far and I can't even drink beer! When I started slumping bottles I slumped this beer bottle flat. It had been laying on the hall bench for months because I didn't have anything to do with it but couldn't yet toss it out. After waling by it about 500 times I finally thought to see if it would stick to the wall and it did! It stayed there until I brought ...

00 RAQCover

Happy Saturday, Friends.  It’s hard for me to believe the week is over!   This was meant to be posted yesterday, but life and work happened.  Today, I am happy to share with you my Oh, Happy Stars! quilt — it is the cover quilt of my book Recreating Antique Quilts.  A special thank you to Mrs. Miles for inspiring Oh, Happy Stars!

My Oh, Happy Stars! is inspired by a Double Irish Chain with Sawtooth Star quilt, made by Mrs. Frank Miles from New Jersey (circa 1840-1850).


You can see that Mrs. Miles’ quilt is much scrappier than my Oh ...

Then I prepared the backing fabric for the prairie fire quilt. I am using a piece of home dec ...

All Roads Lead to the Sea Quilt from Tamarack Shack


This is Linda’s All Roads Lead to the Sea quilt and the pattern is designed by Country Creations in Alberta, Canada.  It is a beautiful pictorial quilt and she asked for custom quilting.  I don’t get a lot of landscape quilts so this was a bit of a challenge for me but I enjoy a good challenge.  I wanted to add a lot of texture but not distract from the piecing.  Started with a simple piano key design in the outer border and large random swirls in the sky.  I stitched in the ditch around all the landscape ...

Chicken & Dumplings from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

On a cold, icy night, there’s nothing like Chicken & Dumplings. My mom made the best dumplings and Chad used to beg her to make them for him. It seems like everyone makes them differently and though most all of them are good, these are the ones I love. Earlier in the week, I had […]

Divadýlko pro děti a maňásci from Katerina Gabrova

Těsně před Vánocemi jsem si dala velký úkol - ušít dětem naše domácí divadýlko. Už jsem po tom toužila dávno. V hlavě jsem si střádala strašně moc nápadů, jak by vlastně naše divadélko mělo vypadat. Co vychytat... Ale myslím, že to promýšlení stálo za to. A hlavně proč to dělat jednoduše, když to jde složitě. Divadýlko nám už visí v obýváku a doplnili jsme spoustu maňásků. Divadlo se zavěšuje na strop. Máme dřevěné podhledy, takže lze umístit v podstatě kamokoliv, stačí hřebíček a divadýlko už...

QuiltCon class wrap up... from Bumble Beans Inc.

Classes at QuiltCon!

I'm slow to getting all my images up online! I came home Monday, and was so happy to just be home for a couple of weeks that I jumped straight into the studio to sew!  So my poor blog got neglected!   Sorry! 
Also, before I could SEW, I had to CLEAN... blah.
And if you are like me, cleaning leads to starting many new projects, which are not on the TO DO LIST....  Squirrel!
I had to clean, as my new studio which was being photographed for Quiltmania's new mag (coming in JUNE), and I ...
