Meine Stoffe sind ein bisschen busy, deshalb habe ich so eine
ganz feine weiße Kante zugefügt....
Angelikas Kommentar zur Mitte
habe ich die ganze Zeit im Hinterkopf, 
denn sie hat ja so recht und kennt mich so gut

Embroidery... from Quilt Doodle Doodles


http://www.quiltdoodledesigns.com/BOM-2017.html

I am still trucking along with my embroidery. I have noticed that my backstitch is starting to look a bit better. I guess practice makes perfect. I am on my way to quilt retreat this weekend. As I write I am wondering what in heaven's name am I going to work on. I have a list of things that I want to do. As you read this, I should be all snuggly warm in front of Colleen's fireplace stitching away listening to the hum of everyone sewing on their projects. I am really looking forward to spending the ...

Of Peas (and Carrots) from Dueling Threads

Did you know that if you google (yes, I’m using it as a verb…) “Peas and Carrots Poem”, you get about 352,000 results?   I’m not even sure how many page loads one would have to endure to get to the one that was at the bottom of the list.

The first page of the search results in a plethora of poetry and I was surprised to see that most of them were about love!  I guess I never paid much attention to the pairing in the past, and certainly didn’t think that the next block I ...

Stash Report And Sharp Things from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in or out this week. No problem, I will have a couple finishes in the next few weeks.

I pulled out the March UFO last night to find my place. I had some units pieced and some pieces cut, but not enough of anything to make a block. I cut enough pieces to make four blocks, which will put me at 7 of 14 blocks done.

feb-blocks-qaabom16I pulled a stupid and nicked myself with the rotary cutter. I’d already cut myself earlier in the day doing something not at all related to quilting and decided maybe I ...

March Short List from Quilt Paint Create

February was a wash for me. I didn’t finish anything.
I have much better hopes for March. I did make progress on the February list items that should lead to March finishes.
The Short List includes something old (UFO), something new, a handwork project and Art Quilt Creative Play. I started using this system in November 2014 to keep myself focused. I adjust the categories as needed to add new interests and drop things that no longer appeal.
· Something old – The Quilt Addicts Anonymous BOM from 2016 is UFO #5 that was chosen for March’s Get It Done ...

Friday Recap from Sewn With Grace


































































 
























I was thinking about my blog today and just how poorly neglected she is.  In the very beginning, back in 2009, I blogged every day.  I don't know what I was thinking because I knew that it would be hard  to sustain.  With the rise of Instagram, blogging seems to be becoming less and less of a thing. Why take the time to blog when you can instantly show things and talk to friends on your phone?  Today I am longing for those simpler times and I thought I would set a goal of blogging on Fridays to show ...

March's Blocks! It's Laundry Day and Pie! from Quilt Doodle Doodles

This month's blocks remind me of my grandma. I have such fond memories of visiting grandma and  grandpa on the farm. Remember the smell of pie just out of the oven? Love the smell of something baking. I remember helping grandma make pies for dessert. Apple pie, banana cream pie were two of our favorites to make on the farm. That summer I had graduated to being able to help in the kitchen, I felt pretty grown up rolling out pie crust. (I was about 15-16 years old) Grandma was pretty used to making these huge meals to feed ...

Love These Blocks! from Quilt Doodle Doodles

I just love the Quilt Doodle BOM 2017 blocks when they are done with embroidery instead of being appliquéd. While you guys are following along month by month, I am attempting to make two quilts! One that is done with fusible applique and one that is embroidered. I know that applique isn't  everyone'should cup of tea so by showing the blocks can be embroidered presents another sweet option for doing this quilt. I want to show you how easy it is to do! I am not the best hand stitcher, my mom, grandma and friend, Colleen are awesome ...

Happy Valentines Day quilt from Pointless Quilter

I can't tell you how long it's been since I've had this kit.  I know I bought it on clearance at least 2 years ago.

It's already hanging in my bedroom.  It's supposed to have heart buttons but the buttons they gave me are more on the burgundy side instead of red and I didn't really like them.  So I am leaving it like this.  That is ric-rac going through the blocks.  And I used only the blocks with dogs in them except one that has cookie in it.  That's in honor of ...
