Wag The Dog from Priscilla's Workshop

In the middle of the pandemic, despite desperate need for assistance, Trump is diverting US resources to do drug interdiction on the high seas. That's literally the high seas because Trump is sending large US Navy ships to stop what are claimed to be massive amounts of drugs from coming in to the country from somewhere--no other information provided. This is all happening when the commander of a US air craft carrier is pleading for help to download 5000 service people from his ship because if they aren't taken off the ship, all of them will come down ...

DIY Face Mask to help stop spread of COVID19 from Trillium Design

03/19/2020
As of this moment there are over 10000 cases of COVID-19 in the US.  We need to stop the spread and that is the only way we are going to get through this.  The time for action is now. The CDC and Hospitals around the country are asking for home sewers to make masks.  It's time for us to step up and help each other.  Even if you can't sew you might be able to get these masks into the right hands. Maybe you know someone who works in the medical field who knows who ...

Black and Gold Petals 8, 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

A little bit of applique plus a LOT of quilting.

I seem to have forgotten to add any applique at all, but I love wholecloth quilts!

I like the last, but my favourite for the day is the wholecloth design.

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 368! Starting off todays party with some encouraging thoughts. This picture is from three days ago. Spring snow never lasts long and today most of that snow is gone.  In the midst of our landscape is the coronavirus and this too, shall pass.  Life will get back to normal and each one of us will take away something from the experience of going

Wednesday from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today is Wednesday, right? Now I’m not sure. OK . . checked the phone and it is Wednesday. The days go by so fast. Vince has spent the biggest part of this day working on a small raised bed for growing turmeric and ginger. I had hoped to have them all planted today but that...

Every so often questions and comments come from readers that I think others would like to hear my response to.  That’s when I feature them on the blog.  This is one of those days.

April goals from Espritpatch

It seems highly likely that we will be spending most of our time at home for the coming month, unless the fight against the current pandemic takes a dramatic turn for the better, which might be too early in the UK. Strangely enough, although I now have a lot more free time than usual, the free time I am always craving, sometimes it is the motivation that is seriously lacking. I wonder if this is just me or if the overall stress and anxiety we are living under is affecting everyone. Anyway, let's dream that I will fill my ...

NTT...The Roundup Edition from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all.  I hope you're all staying safe and sane at home as I am.  This week has been an exercise in balance for me.  With everyone home all the time, it is very easy to slip into doing more house and family things and a little less quilting stuff, since I usually do the bulk of my quilting and pattern work while my husband and son are gone.  So, finding a good work/school/fun balance that keeps everyone happy and productive has been the number one priority.

I've managed to clear ...

NEW FABRIC AT THE ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP from ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

Hello Quilters!  Not much going on around here.  Chris at the Attic Window Quilt Shop did send me this picture of these new fabulous fabrics that she got in at the shop today.  Here's what she says: "I just got these fabrics in.  They are called Star Bright from Andover Fabrics.  Makes me think of saying, "Star light, star bright..." 

Thanks, Chris, for sending. I love to see new fabrics.

And then there were two! And a wee rainbow quilt, too! from JulieKQuilts

 I had half square triangles left over from another big block, so I have now made two of these quilts.  The colors and look of each quilt is so different.  I love using scraps that were destined for the trash bin!
And speaking of tiny scraps; remember all those bow ties I cut out from last post?  Leftovers from that cutting binge were these tiny pieces, finishing 1/2 inch by 1 inch.  I was tossing them, when I figured out they were mostly (some were wonky) the same size.  So I made this rainbow quilt.  Teeny pieces for sure ...

Life and Houston part 2 from Tales from the Raspberry Rabbits

Hi ya! Sorry I missed last week and the week before. The virus had me taking care of things such as having my classes canceled through June. I had to do a little regrouping as I purchased TONS of Valdani thread to get me through a year of teaching. I had a big sale that I was going to share with you last week and then poof, we lost the internet for 15 hours because someone on the road construction crew decided that cutting a major fiber optic line was a good thing to do when everyone is staying home ...

Temperature Quilt - Month 2 from Thistle and Thicket Studio

As I was downloading the temperatures for March this morning, I realized I never shared my February block for my temperature quilt.

Temperature Quilt Blocks by Thistle Thicket Studio. www.thistlethicketstudio.com
In the photo, the left block is January and the right block is February. I did correct the first day of January where I accidentally used the wrong fabric for the low. I ended up just ripping out that day and was able to insert the high and low in without remaking the whole section. Yay!!! Nobody but me would have known it was wrong but it would have bugged me forever if I didn't fix it ...
