Snowballs from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

No, we are not in winter here .... not yet.  But, snowballs?  That is the name of my latest quilt finish!  It was made during a quilt-along by Temecula Company and I absolutely loved making this quilt.  The border design is my own and I would do it again in a flash!

After the binding got finished, it was late at night and I just had to snap this photo taken in the lamp light at the cottage.

Here is the other side of the bridge on our cottage road.
The bridge is a one vehicle lane only and has great ...

Always Choose Tropical: Colour & Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Always Choose Tropical colour scheme by Clever Chameleon

Always Choose Tropical

I am slowly working through a huge backlog of blog-relevant news and quilty happenings! I can’t believe July has been such a huge month, it certainly wasn’t forecast that way. Or maybe I just wasn’t paying attention! Anyway, we’re halfway in, and I still need to post two Love with a Twist patterns (aiming for one on Friday), an unboxing post for Island Batik (next week), and a number of other smaller things I’m messing around with.

But before all that, I really want to give you the lowdown on the Chameleon ...

It Doesn't Look Like Much, But I'm Making Progress from Quilty Folk

Next up in the hoop is the Big Tipsy Basket quilt. I don't think it was really supposed to be next in line, but I'm playing around with the idea of putting this one into the regional quilt show. It's all been sort of up in the air as we have an older friend getting married that particular weekend near Portland, Oregon.  

Big Tipsy Basket
Quilts are supposed to be picked up directly after the end of the quilt show and I've been having trouble lining up someone to collect my 'potential' entries. Still working on ...

A Trip To Moms With Sophie from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and getting ready to go to moms. I had a few things I need to do before we get to moms. Loaded up Sophie and my quilts stuff.

I had to get to the Spooner's shop to get some raspberries for Patrick. He's going to make some more freezer jam.


I got a flat because a half a flat was a bit expensive. It was $15 for a half flat and then $25 for a flat. Guess I thought it was a better deal to get a flat.

Then Sophie and I headed ...

Good Things Happen When You Join a Quilt Guild! Out-of-Print Book Miracles and Workshops With Karen Kay Buckley from Cheeky Cognoscenti

What an amazing week this has been quilt-wise, and all because I joined the Charlotte Quilters' Guild a few months ago!  On Monday, our Southside Stitchers Bee met at Christa's house, where I got lots of needleturn applique stitched down, ate a few too many homemade chocolate chip cookies, and got a tour of Christa's professional longarm quilting studio, Cotton Berry Quilts.    Christa is letting me borrow a set of Handi-Quilter Groovy Boards to try out with my longarm machine for my next charity outreach quilt, to see it that works better for me than trying to follow ...

A Little of This and a Little of That from The Cozy Quilter

I have worked on a variety of hand sewing projects in the past week. I finally got back to working on my Coming Home BOM designed by Sarah Fielke.  There is a lot of applique to do for the next couple of steps so I am making an effort to get caught up.  There are two crescent moons and two suns in the current border.  I did the moons last weekend and this weekend, I am working on the suns.   I appliquéd the circles onto the yellow sun rays today at the London Modern Quilt Guild meeting. 


Both suns are ...

Cranky But Happy (!) from Canadian Needle Nana

Truth be told, I am feeling a little tired and cranky this morning.  Too hot as well which may be the source of my problem.  A couple of weeks of heat and humidity that has driven us to turn on the air conditioning later in the day might be the source...the ceiling fans in every room just can't keep up and I've rediscovered that unless you are directly under them, they don't cool you off. I have a wide range of tolerance for heat and cold so if I'm feeling it, then I know it ...

French Treasure (And a Little Bit of Swiss) from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

France is quite close to where I (Kara) live, and I've shared over the last two years various glimpses of the Alsace region of France. When I first arrived, I was able to go the European Patchwork Festival in Sainte Marie Aux Mines, and this past spring, I took a fun trip to Strasbourg, France. (You can read about both places here and here). This visit to France took us to the Burgundy region of France on our way down to Lyon, for the Women's World Cup soccer final.

Working At The Veterans Memorial Museum from Quilting My Way

Today was the day I volunteer for the museum. Sophie was getting after me this morning. Think she wanted to play. But I had to leave.

I worked at the museum and it was busier than I expected.


We had a family of 6 already when I got home. We had a lot of people coming in. They have a ton of these bond fliers that were donated to the museum. We have a lot of stuff in the museum and it's hard to believe that most of what we have have come form local people. They go all ...

Success at Festival of Quilts 2019 from Clever Chameleon

"Always Choose Tropical" chameleon quilt at the SA Festival of Quilts. By Dione Gardner-Stephen of Clever Chameleon

The Chameleon gets his 15 seconds of Fame!

The Chameleon will have to forgive me for taking so long to get around to making a chameleon quilt now, don’t you think? Not only did I make him a quilt FULL of cheeky chameleons, but I showed it in our local Festival of Quilts, and it won its category’s blue ribbon. That ought to keep him off my case for a while!

The weekend just gone was the annual Quilters’ Guild of South Australia’s Festival of Quilts. After judging, entrants who are successful get a specific invitation to ...

Thought It Was Saturday...NOPE, Friday! from Quilting My Way

My brain is off. Keeps telling me it's Saturday - and I thought it was Saturday yesterday! Can't win. Now, let's see if I figured it was Saturday tomorrow - with the way I'm going!

This morning I was working on my list of things to do. It was quilting at moms today. I started out with going to see if Raspberries were up for sell yet, NOPE. So, I stopped and got gas, then my Chia Tea. Headed over to moms. There were 8 of us today. It was full in the living room. Mom's new ...
