Not Just A Friendship Star - Table Runner from Samelia's Mum






Good Morning and welcome to my stop on Nancy Scott (Masterpiece Quiltins) blog hop for her Christmas Collection book. 

Nancy has created lots of sweet and festive projects in her Christmas inspired book. Projects range between small ones (like mug rugs or wall hangings) which can be finished in a few hours or a weekend, to some bigger quilts which would take a little more time to create. The patterns are well written with lots of photographs and images, which is helpful for any skill level.

Quilts of Valor Blog Hop Featuring Freedom by Island Batik from Quilted Delights


Welcome to the final day of the Quilts of Valor Blog Hop, hosted by Jen of Dizzy Quilter


The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.


 This past November I happened upon a Quilt of Valor Ceremony during the city's yearly Jingle Bell Market.  I had never been to one, so I sat down to see what it was all about.


I had heard of Quilts of Valor and knew of their mission, but had never actually witnessed anyone getting a quilt ...

Pineapple Day {QAL with FQS - Supplies} from Little Bunny Quilts

I'm pleased as punch to be quilting along with the Pineapple Day quilt along with the Fat Quarter shop! The pattern uses the FQS's pineapple pads -- now available in two sizes!


I've played around with a number of different pineapple log cabin paper pieced patterns, but these pineapple pads from the FQS are great because the sewing lines are super fine -- which helps you be very accurate -- and the paper is lightweight without being flimsy -- which makes it easier to pull the paper off in the end.


Here's the pattern for the quilt along and click ...

How Fairy Exciting. Forest Fairy Crafts ahoy! from Clever Chameleon

Fairy made of felt and thread

Let’s do something a little bit different today, just for fun!

This week I took a break from quilting to do some other crafting. Although it’s not unheard of to find random craft projects on Clever Chameleon, I admit I haven’t done any non-quilty crafting for the blog for ages. It felt good to detour for a day or two!

A while back, I was invited by C&T Publishing to join Lenka Vodicka-Paredes and Asia Currie on a blog hop for their book “Magical Forest Fairy Crafts Through the Seasons”. Well, I couldn’t resist. The ...

Halloween Spooks in Faboolous Fun {Autumn in the Air Hop + Giveaway} from Little Bunny Quilts

Today I'm the hostess for the Autumn in the Air blog hop!


I'm more of a summer girl myself, but I love sewing for fall! This time around, I picked the Faboolous Fun line to sew up a new version of our Halloween Spooks pattern, which can be used to make a table runner or a wall hanging.



I really loved the green prints in this collection, so I decided to use that as the main background fabric. Oh, and guess what! This fabric GLOWS! (I'm not a photography wizard, but I did figure out a way ...

Diamonds are The Best from Stitchin at Home

Welcome to my day to participate in the Be a Diamond Blog Hop, hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. The goal in this hop was to create a "diamond" project.



Diamonds are a girl's best friend, as my birthstone is diamond I totally agree with that statement. Whether diamonds are a member of the precious stone family, a song or made from fabric they are the best IMHO. My project may not officially be a "diamond",  however the squares on point do give the impression of diamonds.

I used an animal print that ...

For the Love of a Color from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

Bernie over at Needle and Foot sent me an email about an event she was hosting.  It is all about sharing your silliest quilting blunders.  Doesn't that sound fun?!


Now I admit, I don't make mistakes. (HA!) I like to think of my imperfections as simply design elements or variations.  I even share in my presentations to other quilters that doing something once is a mistake but doing it more than once makes it a design choice!

As you can see, I even have a metal sign right where I meet with my quilting clients that expresses this ...

All About Strings Blog Hop and Free Motion Mavericks from Quilting & Learning

Welcome to the All About Strings Blog Hop and the Free Motion Mavericks (Week 222) link-up.

All About Strings Blog Hop

I challenged myself to make this string quilt into an art quilt. Here is the journey and result.

I thought that I was making a spiderweb string quilt but the instructions I found on the Internet were not correct and by the time I figured it out, I decided to just keep going.

"Tries to play nice with others" 
The background is a Kona cotton solid. I used two layers of cotton batting for the first time. I really ...
