Stars of Solace from Sew Preeti Quilts

Audition Block

Ready to Piece

Just Playing with HSTs

Mom was exasperated.
Can I have just one room that is clean and uncluttered?  One room where I can seat a guest?
Is that too much to ask?

Design Wall

Two Rows = Half Done

Yay for the Flimsy!!!

Mom is an early riser and by early afternoon she needs a nap. If mom was taking a nap in the bedroom, we girls would take our toys in the drawing room and play as quietly as possible. And although we kept the noise level to a minimum the clutter and the mess ...

A Warm Tribute from Sew Preeti Quilts

The Quilted Legacy Blog Hop is an effort to honor the legacy of Paula Budinger, who passed away earlier this year.  Paula blogged at and later at Many of us knew her through her blog and quilts. Paula loved colorful, scrappy quilts, and made kid quilts for Project Linus. Paula also studied quilt history, learned dating old quilts, and collected antique and doll quilts. 

To celebrate Paula's life and her love of quilting, some quilter-bloggers decided on a blog hop where each one of us shares a quilt we make for a ...

Backsplash Quilt – The Pattern Testers from Blossom Heart Quilts

Every time I design a quilt pattern, I get so excited to see the quilts that my amazing testers make! These wonderful ladies each make a quilt top to help troubleshoot any hiccups or niggles in the quilt pattern before it gets put out into the world. And the quilts the made for the Backsplash quilt pattern are no exception to their amazingness!

Baby Backsplash Quilts

The baby Backsplash quilt is a neat 45″ x 45″ – a perfect play mat size, and then becomes a toddler quilt once they’ve grown up a bit!

Janet made two different baby Backsplash ...

Little Sailor from Quilt Art by Olena Pugachova

While the Mad Tea Party is gathering momentum in the background, I'd like to share another quilt that was recently completed, but hasn't made an appearance on the blog yet.

I made it for my nephew's seventh birthday and it features a layer cake of the Lake Life collection by Anne Rowan for Wilmington Prints. It has fun boat- and fishing-themed prints, which I didn't want to cut much, so I went for very simple HST blocks, then cut about half of them horizontally and vertically to get smaller HST and solid blocks. I mixed up ...

Floating Squares from Quilt Art by Olena Pugachova

It's been a long time since I updated the blog as I find Instagram more immediate and less time-consuming (if you are there, I'm @lena.pugachova, please have a look, say hi and follow to see what's going on). However, sometimes I feel the pics are not enough and I want to tell at least something of the story.

I rarely make large bed quilts and I always find the process daunting, especially quilting them on my little Janome. In this case I had the additional complication of very limited time. I had planned it for long ...

Very Hungry Caterpillar Fat Quarter Fizz from Goer

Begun in late 2015, when my son was 5, I am so relieved to have finally finished his bed quilt. And it's a big one. This twin sized quilt measures 72" x 90". The pattern is Fat Quarter Fizz by the Fat Quarter Shop.

The curtains are from before he was born. They matched his baby quilt.

I'm glad that I used the blue on the back so when he's tired of Very Hungry Caterpillar he can use the reverse side up. Fabric is all Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, made by Andover.

It's quilted ...

OMG January Goal from Goer

With the new year I filled out a new American Patchwork and Quilting UFO challenge form on January 1st. I have participated in the past, but I skipped 2019. I have way more than 12 WIPs, so I filled in 12 of them and then looked to see what had been chosen for January. It was #2. My most dreaded and probably oldest WIP. I don't even want to look to see when I started it. *checking* This is a true OMG (the other kind)... over 4 years ago.

I never should have quilted this twin sized quilt on ...

A Quilt for Eva from Sew Preeti Quilts

I met Eva for the first time about two years ago.  She is married to Bill who started out as a co-worker but ended up being a friend.  Since his retirement, they live in New Jersey.

On the Design Wall

Eva and I connected over our love of spicy food and gold jewelry.  When I showed her the first of the International Sister Quilt Blocks, her response was immediate. She loved them.

Setting Triangles

This was the first year I participated in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and the International Sister Quilt Block was a perfect block for the purpose.

Piecing ...

Kinda Brave from Sew Preeti Quilts

What is an appropriate gift for a young woman who is celebrating her high school graduation, her 18th birthday and is on her way to a prestigious college?

Kinda Brave

A quilt, of course.

Pieced Backing

Did I mention that she did all this while she was fighting a debilitating disease with multiple doctor visits and hospital stays? And she also wrote a book about her experiences and published it too.

Kinda Chronic by Ashni Sethi

Meet Ashni. Better still read about her book here.

Ashni's Mom is my friend, Manveen.
I conspired with Ashni's parents in making ...
