Well folks! Finally!
I have been teasing you with pictures of this beauty for a while and now I can show you the final quilt.
For those that are newer followers here, I really lean towards modern, sparse, and clean. For some reason I have taken a liking to the churn dash (a traditional block) so I decided to cut into my most favorite fabrics and make one.
The quilting is all straight lines using Aurifil 50 weight thread and it was quilted on my home machine.
My favorite part of making this quilt was the binding because I enjoy ...

Well folks! Finally!
This is the stack of the other 15 for the bottom half of the quilt.
A couple of days ago while at Walmart shopping for groceries and household supplies I found the clearance isle. I usually don't tend to spend money on things that ...
First off, I worked on these blocks. I cut them out from my scrap basket a few months ago. I have 19 ...
My friends, this finish has been a long time coming...but it has not yet crossed the finish line. Gah!
You see, in 2013 one of my goals was to give away most, if not all, of what I made. But...I did make this quilt for myself, because,well - I just wanted to.
Normally sewing on the binding is one of the most important steps, because the project is almost complete....and I LOVE sewing on binding. It is something that is super fast for me and also enjoyable.
But...at the December meeting of my quilt guild, it ... read more
Snow in Eugene Oregon is not a good thing. It has been almost a week since the snow storm, and we still have school closures and bad roads. What about snow plows you ask? I heard there are one or two running around the city but I sure haven't seen any signs of them. It's pretty crazy!
I quilted up my Churn Dash quilt. I used Amy Smart's Easy Churn Dash pattern for sewing up ... read more
My little neighbors started giving me the stink eye pretty early in the day looking for food they could get to. Not much will get me out in this stuff but I did get out to clear off and fill ... read more
My personal challenge I set for myself when I got this suite of patterns from Amy Smart was to make them entirely from my stash. In a bottom drawer I re-discovered a whole bunch of 30's and 40's ... read more
Lange, lange hat´s gebraucht, das ich hier mal wieder was neues zeige.... Eigentlich nähe ich die ganze Zeit und zeigen könnte ich euch eine Menge, aber irgendwie hat mir so ein bisschen die Lust zum Posten gefehlt - manchmal macht das nähen einfach viel zu viel Spaß!
So, damit ihr mal sehen könnt, was ich (unter anderem..) in letzter Zeit produziert habe, hier mein neuster Quilt: Churn Dash
Vorgestern war hier im Raum Frankfurt endlich mal für ein paar Minuten tolles Wetter und ich konnte mich zu meinem momentanen Lieblingsspott mit den tollen Weiden und Pferdekoppeln bei Dreieichenhain machen, um ... read more
I picked up the twin size reversible Churn Dash quilt I made for my grandson this week, from my long arm quilter. You can read about making it here. I'm in love with the way it turned out. The Churn Dash blocks are great but the secondary design of squares and diamonds really draws me in.
May your bobbins always be full,read more
Teressa, this month, asked for the Churn Dash block in my Simply Solids Bee.
You know, funny thing, this churn dash. I have never liked this pattern but in the last couple of months, I have done a 180 and it's lovely. It was great to make this for my bee mate.
As a matter of fact, I have a special project where I owe a block and I made a....guess it...churn dash!
For my special project I had to utilize my math skills to make it into a 9" block (finished). Always remember the seam allowances ... read more
Jana Machado is hosting a quilt along using the patterns from Simply Retro by Camille Roskelley. Each week you work on one of the projects from the book. You can choose to make just a block, a full size quilt, table runner, or what ever you would like to do it just has to be from Simply Retro.
I thought this looked like fun, but I missed the first two weeks, so I checked to see what the next project was and its Baby Love. And I decided to make the jumbo block to make a wall hanging!
I thought ... read more
Finished this quilt top while watching The Masters, probably one of my favorite sporting events to watch.
now i need to find a backing and figure out how to quilt it. But there are babies being born and young brides that need quilts, so it will go into the drawer until I have an epiphany on how how to quilt it, but my goal is to have it finished by the fall so it can live on our bed.
the chickens got involved during the photo shoot:
they were very scared every time the wind blew, this was funny.

I've had the border fabric for years and have always loved it but could never figure out what I wanted to make with it.
And I've been making slow but steady progress in my second quilt using the uglies from the In The Bag Challenge.
It has been a while since I last wrote. School has been out for 3 weeks and ball season is in full swing with tournaments almost every weekend and games that are lasting over 2 hours so alot of long days and late nights sitting in the bleachers. My big news is that I finally broke down and bought myself a new sewing machine!!! I had been using a very inexpensive Kenmore that my husband had bought me 10 years ago. I now have a Janome Memory Craft 6300. This machine has soooo many more features than my old one ... read more
