Crossroads from Quilts....etc.

All of the blocks and rows for Crossroads are now sewn together and ready for a small border.  But the border is going to wait until late fall – I have put all the fabric together with the top  – it is just going to be thin strips (maybe 3″ of each) of two different […]

Yes back to work for a block or two on this English Paper Piecing quilt called Brimfield Awakening.  I know some of you probably do not remember it and that is because I started it back in April and let it sit all summer.  But I’m going to work on it for a week or […]

Crossroads & Quilting from Quilts....etc.

It has certainly been nice outside lately – we have had dry air – low humidity and it feels so nice – we are even sitting out on the porch when it is 92 outside and enjoying it for short spells – would be out all day if it was in the mid 80’s.  Last […]

Fall Harvest–Half the First Border Done from Quilts....etc.

This quilt is moving right along and I’m glad I decided to stay simple with the quilting.  I really have to do this if I will get caught up on my quilt tops and not leave them sit for years in a basket or hang in a closet like some do – I want them […]

A Busy Sewing Day from Quilts....etc.

Clarksdale Crossroads from Seaside Stitches

I recently completed a scrap quilt I had been working on for some time. The traditional block is called Arkansas Crossroads. The title of my quilt is Clarskdale Crossroads because it reminds me of a special trip. (We did cross the border into Arkansas, but didn't spend any time there.)


In June of 2016, my husband Bill and I made the pilgrimage to the legendary blues crossroads in Clarskdale, Mississippi. He bought this pretty resonator guitar on his 50th birthday. If you are not schooled in Mississippi Delta Blues, start here with Robert Johnson


OK, back to the quilt ...
