Winter wonderland from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

What a fantastic Virtual Retreat!! I think I accomplished the most I've ever done, and I'm thrilled. We had people from the US, Germany, and across Canada. Loads of fun, and I'm so pleased to say that I've made new friends, and we get to check up on how people are doing in other parts of the world. It's way better than listening to the news! Thanks to everyone who attended. 

I also dug out my Brother Label Maker and two rolls of tape. As the girls said -- why "save" that tape for a better ...

Bonnie and Camille Show and Tell from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Gosh -- it's almost time for the final reveal, and I haven't shared the last set of blocks with you for Bonnie and Camille! 

I love these ongoing groups, and I've learned so much from all the people in them, and I've met a whole lot of new friends! The new classes should be coming out soon - I'm a little pressed for time this week, as I have a mini-retreat to attend! 

However, that didn't stop me from watching a silly reality show yesterday. I was reading the local paper, and one of the contestants ...

Singing in the choir from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

While I loved being away at the quilt retreat, it's always nice to get back home! And yes - I switched pillows last night. It's too early to tell, but my neck does feel a bit better this morning. It's also that lunatic dog of mine that doesn't help! Walking Murphy is like getting mini-whiplash! She's so much better, but I bet that hasn't helped the situation. 

I couldn't help myself; I contacted Paula's daughter to tell her the quilt top was done! She LOVES it. And so she should - her Mom chose ...

Bonnie and Camille show and tell from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

It appears that as our world gets larger, it also gets smaller. Remember the pattern name change I mentioned yesterday? It appears that the word "gypsy" is NOT a nice word to some cultures. I get it - I truly get it, but we have now dug ourselves into a pit where NOTHING is correct. It doesn't matter what you say or what you do, or how you phrase something or your tone - someone will not be happy. 

I'm not saying that we should continue to use words that are not acceptable, but when is it going to stop ...

Bonnie and Camille Show and Tell from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 So much fun at Monday Sewing!  The big question will be once we are allowed to get back together again - will we? I'm not going to be a fan, but I'll wait and see what happens. The Zoom calls are just so much more efficient. 

I don't have a lot to show from yesterday; I trimmed up many more units for the Double Wedding Ring quilt, which I'll share another day. 

Let's have a look at the homework from Bonnie and Camille that took place on the weekend.

As usual, I ...

Virtual Retreat from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


Looking at my memories on Facebook, one year ago, yesterday was my FIRST class on ZOOM. Oh boy -- what I didn't know when I started and now look! I was on Zoom for most of yesterday! Who knew that was going to happen and that Zoom would become our lifeline (so to speak!). And HEY - my hair is getting so long. 

There are so many ideas for classes and demos; there just isn't enough time to run them all. As long as people keep signing up, I'll keep running them. I have a stack of ideas, and ...

A bird's eye view from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I'm positively in chill-out mode. OK -- so I'm not up to date on everything - still three more documents to write up, two quilts that need to be quilted, and well - that's it. OK - so there are two small quilt projects that I'd like to work on. But seriously?? I'm in control! The studio is pretty much organized; there's NOTHING on the calendar starting tomorrow for FIVE entire days. Oh my -- what am I going to do with myself? 

It's going to be a glorious day - weather-wise and well - we need to get this ...

Bonnie and Camille homework from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 Stay CALM! You know you have a presentation all prepped and ready to go. You know that because you did the presentation last week. However, ONE hour before giving the same presentation, you can't find it. You have a meticulous filing system, and yet - where is it? As a matter of fact, where's the ENTIRE folder with all SIX presentations. 

After a wee bit of searching and coming up with Plan B while you do this, you discover the ENTIRE folder got moved into another folder. Thank goodness for keeping a cool head! All is well; the presentation ...

Progress Report- Jan 2021 from Moda Lissa

I can see why in school we received our progress reports every 6 weeks. It is a lot of work keeping up with the progress or making any progress at all. I finished some and started more so A-.

Progress Report from Moda Lissa

There were times in my life that I hated the term progress report. You know, there was always that one class that was problematic or maybe I was problematic as the student.

I can’t think of any better term for holding myself accountable and logging my progress than “progress report” to keep me on track.

The cool thing is that I get to give myself my own grade.

This week I received a B-.

I  have finished a few projects, started a few new ones and completely ignored others.

More blocks for my red and white quilt.

A New Playmat for Ella from Dizzy Quilts

I'm continuing to work on my goal of using up the fabric I've had in my stash for a long time and this week, I've got another quilt made from charm squares.

The pattern is a tutorial I found in Pinterest. It is called Fresh Diamonds by Samelia's Mum. This is a pretty easy make, but not really a quick make - 156 HSTs to piece and trim! But it was well worth the effort because I really like the finished quilt.

The charm squares are an older Bonnie and Camille collection: Vintage Modern which has the ...
