Birthdays and More from Quilting with Kimberly

First, Kent and I want to sincerely thank everyone — more than 150 of you — for sending so many beautiful cards to help Kent celebrate his 60th birthday! (And dozens and dozens more of you posted loving comments to him on Facebook!) It was more appreciated than you could EVER know. He was so surprised! I posted a short video on Facebook of Kent opening the large box of all the cards and packages. (I’d post the video here except this platform doesn’t seem to accept videos or anything over 2MB. Darn it!)

Kent wanted to take time to ...

Introducing… Let’s Make Art from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Two years ago, Sarah Cray was a freelance artist… selling her prints on Etsy, illustrating books, and just simply exploring her creative freedoms was the life Sarah had fallen in love with. But then, she got a call that would result in her being able to take those passions and share her love of art with the world. The call was from ours truly, Al Doan, the co-founder of Missouri Star Quilt Co. The pair had briefly known each other in college, but after a bad experience in shopping art supplies online, he called up the talented Sarah in hopes ...

Enhance Your Next Project with a Hint of Red from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

You know it’s fall when the scenery changes from green to brown with vibrant hints of red. When walking along a pond bank, you can’t see much under the waters, but you can always catch a glimpse of the red koi fish. The red line of a rainbow is always the first to draw in your attention and there are many kinds of fruit trees, but only the splotches of red in an apple tree are able to be spotted from afar.

Red is a color of intensity. It symbolizes passion, love, strength, energy, and desire. Make simple ...

Foxes, Frogs, and Flamingos. Find them all at Funky Friends Factory! from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

When I was a child, my grandparents gave me a brand new stuffed bunny for my birthday. He was white with blue and purple ears and thus, I named him Jelly Bean. For many years, he was my good friend. We read bedtime stories, snuggled together for movies, and hosted the best tea parties.

As I grew older, I played with him less and eventually stored him away. Today, Jelly Bean sits on a shelf in the back corner of my closet, but I still hold his memories dear and I cannot bring myself to get rid of him.

I’ve seen a irish chain quilts in rainbow layouts, scrappy layouts (it uses a lot of scraps!) or ...

A do-over from Quilting with Kimberly

2018 has ended and a bright, shiny new year has just begun. Years ago, I adopted the “ONE WORD” concept at the beginning of each year in lieu of making new year’s resolutions. Without looking back to see what my ONE WORD was for last year, in reality, my ONE WORD for 2018 was TRANSITION. We sold our Virginia home in March and bought a new home in April across the country in the South Bay area of LA. It was a big, no….a huge transition to move across the country and establish ourselves in a new house ...

When I get up and start my day, I’m still all revved up to put these newfound ideas into practice.

I’ll create that class or group. Make that phone call…
What do you do when your confidence starts slipping away?

But first

I have to workout.
