Challenging times from The Academic Quilter

Hello all. How are you doing with our new reality? I'm just sitting here, writing this while refreshing my grocery order in hopes of getting a pickup time slot. Good times.

Plenty of allergies are building up here, but no nasty viruses yet, thank goodness. I am truly not doing too well with this whole thing, and I'm trying to be upbeat and optimistic, but folks, I'm struggling. I know some of you are, too. It's a very challenging time for everyone, and trying to keep it all together is getting to me. Even stitching isn ...

Frankie's Woodland Friends from Seaside Stitches

Here's another baby quilt I made in 2017, this one for my great nephew, Frankie. I blurred out Frankie's unique middle name for privacy reasons.

Most of the animals are from the pattern Woodland Critters by Shiny Happy World.

I added the turtle (for the book character Franklin) and a cardinal at mom's request.

I don't do machine appliqué often, but I did enjoy the process. I worked on one block at a time, adding to the design wall as I went.

I did not quilt-as-you-go as suggested in the pattern. 

 I love how Wendi's ...

After a very long absence from my blog, I am back with the last quilt I achieved.
It was a very easy and quick baby quilt to complete, though hand quilted. 
I started end of September and finished beginning of November, just in time before flying to Paris : 
last stitches the night before!

This quilt is a gift for my niece who decorated the bedroom of her future daughter using very soft colors. I first intended to sew a quilt using my beloved Liberty fabrics but, after I received the pictures of the wallpapers, I put them away and decided ...

A Finish for the Week- Baby Quilts Are the Best from {The Sweetest Dreams}

Just this morning I washed and photographed this sweet baby quilt. It is made with a free pattern from Moda Bake Shop and Big Sky by Annie Brady for Moda. It's perfect for a little boy. About a year ago I made the same quilt for another little boy using another color way. You can see that quilt HERE .

I love the backing fabric! I'm sorry I didn't stash a few more yards before it disappeared.  I'm linking up with:

Scrapping thru to the next Decade....lots of photos from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

Well golly gosh, here we are once more at the end of another year, and this time it will also be the beginning of another decade.  The mere thought of the year 2000 used to be such a far fetched fantasy, and yet now we are at the end of twenty years of this new millennium.  Many things have happened, most of them lovely, a few bad, but life goes on, and God is always Good.

Here are a few last photos of various things and I have included some of my favourite quilts over the past decade.  I hope ...

Christmas outing ... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

Our Tuesdays girls had our yearly Christmas outing today.  This time we headed west and went to Palmerston North, which is about 1 hour 40 mins from here.  It's a bit longer these days because the gorge that you used to drive through has been closed for the last 18 months or so due to major slips.  The cost of repairing it was too major and a new road is going to be developed.  Unfortunately, it's going to take about another 6 years before that is completed!!  We are way down on the list of priorities. This is ...

Quilting this little quilt from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

Made this little one completely out of my leftovers from another baby quilt.  It will be a donation quilt for the neonatal unit in one of our hospitals...not sure which one to send it to yet.  Hoping to get another couple done before I send it off,  It's good to be able to finish something quickly.

Managed to get some practice with my ruler foot on my domestic machine.  Quite different action compared to my long arm machine I had to let go.  Enjoying learning though, and the Janome 9450QCP is such a lovely machine to quilt with ...

Why Am I Giving Kevin And Jessica This Quilt? from Quilts + Color

It's a baby shower gift! 
It is a quilt made for the baby to use and cuddle, not to hang on the wall. They are waiting for the baby to be born to know if it is a girl or boy so this should be loved by either one.
It is hand quilted and I hope it will be used and eventually worn to shreds out of love for it.

Next quilt on the list please.... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

I'm trying to keep this roll going after the Sunflower quilt.  I managed to put two baby quilts together for Shala's newest grandchildren and enjoyed making something that was small and simple. The little pink quilt has an embroidered centre that I did while re-familiarising myself with the Janome MC500e Embroidery machine.  It was totally from my stash.  The boy's quilt is a little range of fabric I fell in love with in a quilt shop after Lucas was born.  Couldn't resist of course.

Now I have Kea's Star Wars quilt up on my design ...

Cars and Trucks, Oh My...a Quilt for Kids from The Joy of Sewing...and Quilting, Too!

At long last, a new quilt design to share. I've been working on this fun wall hanghing for babies and kids since July of this year, but it was sidelined as the seasons changed and I took on new editing work in addition to my part-time office job at a pre-school. I had such fun designing this new quilt for kids, featuring vehicles that kids love. Wouldn't it be the perfect wall hanging for a child's room? Toddlers will love this bright and colorful quilted wall hanging...and it's a great teaching tool for words and ...

Finally this year we are having a real fall! Although I miss California a lot, now I realize how much I missed having seasons! It's fun to see how everything around us changes so much each day, the colors, the weather, our clothes and also the light. We are approaching to the dark season here in Norway, the days are shorter each day and even though it scares me a bit, I know I will handle it. I mean, I'm a homey person and if all this cold and darkness have something good, it must be spending quality ...
