Circling Around the Intent from Blended Fabric Quilts | Good Earth Quilting | Organic Quilting Cotton

I love to read some of my favorite blogs and one is Sew Slowly by one lovely lady who could very well be another me. I know, who knew?

I identify with her words and wished we lived closer. 

It was her blog that I first found the 365 Circles movement of sorts.

Now, getting back to why Sew Slowly is my favorite blog is because her work speaks to using up the numerous fabric odds and ends we quilters accumulate. I am very aware of how many bins and boxes my husband has faithfully carried around for me, this ...

Crazy Heart Quilt Progress from Blended Fabric Quilts | Good Earth Quilting | Organic Quilting Cotton


Crazy Heart CQ started some time ago. Truth be told I had begun the inner 'heart' while I was mulling over getting started on the Smithers Centennial Quilt which was the early days of 2012. How time flies!


I decided again this spring of 2017 it was time that 'Crazy Heart' found a home and direction. I had originally used some fringy braid that was hand sewn around the outside edge of the heart. But when I reviewed this peice, the fringy braid had to go. It was this initial start to remove the fringy braid that I realised underneath ...

Blooming Crazy Quilt from Blended Fabric Quilts | Good Earth Quilting | Organic Quilting Cotton

Hello to all my quilty friends!

Super excited that I'm finally able to get into some new fabric and some new quilts. More on that later. But just received some fun project supplies from www.fabricspark.com.


A few years ago I was inspired and fell in love with Jen Kingswell designs! My work on her pattern "Midnight in the Oasis" gave me pause for a whole bunch of reasons.


I have done so many quilts that pausing has been good for me and my aspirations.


I lingered on modern versions of crazy quilting using machine stitches and machine ...

McHenry Crazy Quilt Block 7 - The Mill Pond from Kitty and Me Designs

With my husband's cancer treatment going on, I haven't been able to focus on stitching too much lately.  I've been very tired but I did finish up on Block #7 of my McHenry Crazy Quilt.

If you're new to my blog, this quilt is a traditional style crazy quilt featuring old photos of special sites in my little town of McHenry Illinois.  When I complete this quilt, I will be donating it to the McHenry Public Library.

Block #7 is devoted to the Mill Pond:

And here is the photo that I used:

Twenty Four Chapters from Blended Fabric Quilts | Good Earth Quilting | Organic Quilting Cotton

This is the first of twenty four posts in this anniversary year of writing Good Earth Quilting.

This special year of 2017 is Canada's 150th Birthday!

That makes this a wonderful year to celebrate why I started writing a blog in the first place. Its been ten years since I started sharing online by writing my thoughts, my processes and methods even, to an open door of further creativity. 

We, who do share blog posts are "passing along our culture" our way of doing things. If we were back in the Cave Dweller Days, we'd be hulking around ...
