Lost: Cityscape Quilt Top from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Lauren Kermode is asking for help in locating a quilt top that she calls Waters Edge Nighttime Cityscape. This quilt is the quilt maker’s original design, approximately 45″ x 60″ made of black, orange, and off white fabrics.  The skyscrapers on the cityscape quilt are made from a black fabric that has tiny red (and some gray?) squares on it. Lauren explained, ” This guy is a city sky at Sunset with a large Rising Moon. All of the skyscrapers are also reflected into the blue black swirling water.”

This is the style of the citiscape although not the exact ...

My Pot of Gold & A Giveaway! from Heart Desire Creations

 

img_1371Several years ago, more like many years ago, I started collecting metallic fabrics. Many had an Asian theme and I loved them.  It took me a couple of years to decide, but finally I decided to do a hexagon star pattern.  I cut the hexagons on my Sizzix – I cut, and cut, and cut.  Rather than cut the individual triangles, I sewed the hexies to strips of fabric and then trimmed.

I found this black with gold dots fabric and a friend suggested that I scatter a few black stars about. Had to admit – a good idea.  It also meant ...

Post Retreat + Enjoying my Passions from Heart Desire Creations

After being home a week, I’ve finally made it to the computer to do a wrap up of my somewhat productive sewing at a quilt retreat I attended in South Carolina.  I began the week full steam ahead by making string blocks for a border that I cut into fours. I then paired each with a white on white square and made half square triangles.  All of my notes were at home (why oh why??) so I just made bunches!  This is the quilt top I was preparing the border blocks for:

These are the border blocks, not yet ...

B & N Fund Raiser Success from AQuA

This event was coordinated by the “three sisters” Susan, Bonnie and Pam  and they herded AQuA members into 2 hour shifts, including one member who changed her shift 3, count them 3 times (yours truly). We good attendance in the store, the reversible fabric shoulder bags the sisters made for door prizes were coveted and appreciated by the winners, and it is all over except hearing our income tally. Thanks Bonnie, Susan and Pam and all who contributed time or quilts.

On Creativity from Art and Quilting in Camden

Always more to learn. And Omahi’s absolutely right about equipment vs. imagination (link in caption). Sometimes the true creativity comes from figuring out how to make your vision come to like with the materials and skills you already have . . . No excuses! Plus, the Guy has good Photoshop skills with fire!

Moving Ahead from Heart Desire Creations

Goals – I like to set them but even better I like to meet them! My biggest upcoming one is to finish up the Hospice quilts by the end of July. They are donated in November, but I’d like to use the other four months for concentrating on completing more of my Works in Progress.  Here is how April ended up:

April WIPs (Medium)

Because I am out of town, I don’t have pics of some finishes.  Will get to those after retreat. Until then – enjoy being creative!

Gifts! from Heart Desire Creations

Gifts are fun – especially when given by someone special.  A friend recently came to stay for an overnight play date (yes, quilting of course!).  She brought me her farm fresh eggs – no picture as they didn’t last very long! If you’ve never had farm fresh eggs, let me tell you that they are the best! The shells are fun because they’re not plain white, the yolks are a deep yellow and denser, and the sizes are big, big, big!

My friend has a farm in South Carolina – Fox Trot Farm in Lancaster. Touring the farm is fun ...

Lunch And Show & Tell ART With Girlfriends from Quilts + Color


It is always so much fun to get together for lunch and show and tell with my talented friends.

Beth has challenged herself to do a project with 5 different ideas. I really wish you could see this in person as there are so many special ways she has used her materials and the way she has created the picture. She has experimented with so many different techniques and materials and this shows how she has mastered them.
The elephant used a batik method.

Robbie has been taking a color and design class on line from a lady in the ...
