Growing Season from Bunbear Quilts

My two cherry tomato plants in that container are growing like crazy!  I'm really pleased with how well they are doing.  They have tiny tomatoes on them already, too!  Can't wait until it's full of them!

We have to keep the plants up on the deck, away from Addy.  I think she would probably make quick work of them, and tear them right out of the pots!  She does like to dig, but not as bad as some of the dogs we have had.  Mostly Addy likes to dig by the bushes for a cool place to ...

No Reply Bloggers from Stitchin at Home

I am amazed at the number of no reply bloggers I've had in the ongoing giveaway of 'Crafted Applique'. You can see my projects here and still enter the giveaway.

I like to reply to any comments I receive. I think it helps to interact with you who have taken the time to leave a comment and also it just seems rude not to reply.
BUT, if you're a no-reply blogger, it doesn't allow me to respond to your comment via email because your email address isn't listed, when I hit reply it instead sends to ...

Graduation Season from Love Laugh Quilt

It's graduation season.
Time to FINISH the quilts!

This is the last of three graduate quilts
that will be given away SOON!

My blue scraps and leftover shirts
did NOT disappoint me!

A simple loopy quilting pattern was
easy and brainless.

my stash yielded some nice CHUNKS for the backing!

Don't you???

sunny's quilt top from Crazy Mom Quilts

Our neighbor girl, Sunny, is about as sweet as they come. She graduated from high school last Friday and her dad passed away in January. So, for two reasons she needs a quilt! I had no idea what her tastes are, so a few weeks ago I invited her over to help pick fabric for her quilt. I would much rather have her input and make something that she likes rather than try to guess what she might like. (I did guess and I was terribly wrong. Hahaha!)

This was our initial fabric pull and she chose this pattern. I ...

OMG It's Finished! Linkup May 2016 from Red Letter Quilts

Okay, I sure hope ya'll have had better success with your One Monthly Goal this month than I have!

Perhaps I was a wee bit optimistic: Summer Gathering still waits patiently for me, leading the queue beside Mr. Juki. Of course, I wish I were sharing a finished quilt today! Instead, I will share the little projects I am toting with me tonight to the Las Vegas Modern Quilter's meeting.

Two block-lotto blocks, and a hummingbird I made for the Drunkard's Path block challenge. I was inspired by a quilt shared recently by Susan, who blogs at ...

H’s to the FINISH! from Quiltville's Quips & Snips!

There are days when you put off writing the blog so that you can finish the quilting, and get some photos in!

The Quilt is Calling and I Must Obey!

Actually, it was one of those “The birds are calling at 5:45am and now you are awake.”  I have a sneaking suspicion that there WILL be a nap this afternoon. 

I was so wound up after last night’s Quilt-Cam that it was hard to settle in and fall asleep….so extra short night, last night.

Whatever the reasons, I came down to the studio extra early and finished ...

Quilt Market Roundup from Professional Quilter


I got back on Sunday evening after four days in Salt Lake City, which has to be one of the friendliest cities around. Yes, I just confirmed that it ranks second in a Travel + Leisure poll. I started my stay with a trip to Harmon’s Grocery to pick up flowers for my room, and a young woman actually took me part of the way so I wouldn’t get lost. As for Market itself, I loved catching up with long-time friends and making some new ones. I loved being inspired, and I definitely was.

In a few words, the ...

Turning Twenty from Night Owl Quilting

This is Connie's Turning Twenty quilt.  She was not over the moon about it when she dropped it off, but i was pretty sure she would like it more once it was quilted.

We selected the Trellis Vine panto and I think the texture that it adds is really great.  

I had to make sure to get a picture of this fun and funky backing too!

Cole's Capers.... running the gauntlet from Not Afraid of Color

Cole here to tell you how very brave I am!
Every day just to take a walk around the 'hood I have to run the gauntlet.

A new dog moved into the neighborhood and boy does she have a lot to say. She's not the only one.

On our way out to the main street, we must pass lots of dogs.
First it's Lily and Chloe, a lab and a tiny beagle both friends of Mine. I trust them with my favorite toy.
 Next is a new rescue Lab who watches from the door. He seems fine.  Then ...

Busy, Busy from Bunbear Quilts

This is what has been keeping me busy!  These are stacks of 4 bags, so there are 32 bags here.  We had a slight issue with some of them coming apart at the sides, so I replaced them with bags I sewed a bit differently and with stronger thread.  Hopefully this corrects the problem!

Gail is working right along on her Lil' Orphan Scrappy blocks.  They will all be done before ...
