Clearing my Head from Terificreations's Weblog

My sewing room hasn’t been functioning well for a little while. A non-functioning sewing room isn’t a good place for any quilter. We want so much to be in a space that simply doesn’t work. While on a vid call a few weeks ago I showed part of it, stuff I’d been working on and… Continue reading Clearing my Head

The Quilter’s Negative Space Handbook from Flying Parrot Quilts

You guys.

I did a thing.

I wrote a book!

I have been keeping this secret for so long, and I’m so happy that I finally get to let the proverbial cat out of the bag. There will of course be lots more details in the months to come, but for now I want to tell you that this is a book to teach you how to design your own quilts using negative space. Negative space can be such an intimidating design element, so I walk you step-by-step through the design process for each patterned quilt, and for many ...

An Interview with: Gailen Runge from Terificreations's Weblog

Interviewing quilters and authors is one of my favorite things. One of the best things I learned with Generation Q Magazine is to have fun as the person is more than the book they are publishing. The book, Sew Emoji, is due out in September and I’ll be getting two copies, one to keep and… Continue reading An Interview with: Gailen Runge

mini coin pouch in 50 Little Gifts book from Sotak Handmade


Hello, hello everyone!

Have you seen Lucky Spool's newest book? It's called 50 Little Gifts and is a lovely collection of quick and easy patchwork projects perfect for swapping or gift giving. I'm a huge fan of Lucky Spool books so when I was asked if I'd like my Mini Coin Pouch to be included in 50 Little Gifts I was more than happy to say yes.


I reworked the pattern just a tiny bit and sewed up new samples for the book. Love how they turned out :). These little cuties really are super fun and ...

Fruitful Abundance quilt, Crazy Book, and Zucchini Report from caledonia quilter

This is Fruitful Abundance, a class that was run at Quilt Junction.  The maker is a bit of an overachiever and completed hers waaay before the others in the class.

She had three requests with the quilting - one was to keep the 'folk art' feel and not overdo the quilting.

The second was to add a bird to the vases, and the third was to quilt a running leaf vine in the outer half-square border.  There is a TON of s.i.d. and outline quilting on this.

So, on to the Crazy Book story.
Y'all know, sort of ...

On Second Chances from Terificreations's Weblog

A couple of weeks ago I posted this: Something of an unofficial hint. Last night I had phone call with one one of the folks with C&T, while there are a couple of details to work out (mostly timeline) I am writing a quilting book. Giving up writing my first accepted book was and still… Continue reading On Second Chances

Short, Sharp, and Snippy from Becca's Crazy Projects

Yesterday my two copies Short, Sharp, and Snippy, more cutting edge quilt humor by Megan Dougherty showed up on my doorstep. If you don't know what quilt humor is, I recommend you check out Megan's website The Bitchy Stitcher. Sometimes irreverent, sometimes saucy, always my favorite quilt humorist.

I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but it will be on my nightstand for bedtime reading. 
I love it when I get to add another signed book to my growing collection of quilt titles. This one will go well with Megan's first book Quilting Is ...

quiltiness . . . from Count it *all* JOY!


So far it's been a quiet week quilt-wise ... still haven't gotten into the Nook to 'fix' my challenge piece.  Hopefully on Friday I will be able to get to that!  We have Meg Cox, quilt journalist and author of The Quilter's Catalog, coming to speak at our guild meeting on Thursday evening (I'm really excited ... I've blogged a bit about Meg here).  Her book was one of the first quilting books I purchased, and I read it cover to cover, it was SO good! If you haven't ever read it, it's definitely worth ...

midweek mindset . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I started this blog in September, 2003 . . . nearly FIFTEEN years ago!  I got to looking at the posts in that first year (late in the year), and realized there were only three; and two of those were in the same day.  LOL!  I was determined to do at least that many posts in 2018 (hence *this* post).  But I really do enjoy blogging.  I enjoy writing.  Early on my blog was a place to journal.  What I was studying for Sunday School or in my quiet time, what was going on in my life, and even diet and exercise.  One ...

Cozy Nordic Feels from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers!

Happy Thursday! If you didn't know, we recently partnered up with "Debbie von Grabler-Crozier" for a lovely book collaboration called "Lagom-Style Accessories."

LagomStyleAccessories

If you're wondering was "Lagom" exactly means, it comes from Sweden and translates to basically "just enough" or "everything in moderation." Although a Swedish concept ...

Dresden Plate and Mother Nature and Books from caledonia quilter

Have you been around me long enough to know that I love Dresden Plate quilts?  If not, well, I do.  I also love wine and martinis, not necessarily in that order.

This is kind of a modern take on the Dresden Plate, because of the choice of modern fabrics.

The quilting shows better in pics from the back side.  The center of the plates all have a bird quilted in them, as requested by the maker.  Love.

Yes, now on to MOTHER NATURE.  I'm tempted to start referring to her as "she who must not be named".





I gave ...
