Brand New Wedding Ring 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

I was really trying very hard to sort out some new beaded applique blocks, but got distracted by a question which started with two innocent little words.

What if … I made the corner a little bit more elaborate?

Which of course led to trying the idea out in a couple of quilt designs. Now I will try really hard to concentrate on sorting those block designs … and maybe filling in obvious gaps in the collection.

Round Two from Quilting Solutions

I finished my Wedding Star quilt.  This is a little table topper 30" in both dimensions.  It is a Judy Niemeyer pattern and I do so admire her designs, but I found the directions to be very confusing in some parts.  However, I was able to tough it out without too much waste.  It is paper pieced and I have done lots of that so experience paid off.

In all my years of sewing and quilting this is the first bias binding I have done.  I went straight to Sharon Schamber's wonderful video on how to do it.  She ...

Bubbles 6, 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

I wondered what I could do if I was ever silly enough to accumulate a large box of small, circular scraps, so started playing with the idea in Electric Quilt.

I started just scattering them around, then thought I could follow lines … like the lines of Double Wedding Ring.

Looks good to me!

I suspect that the many variations possible with String of Beads. I must remember that when we have a rainy day, and no shopping to do, no appointments to go to, or even visits to family and friends which cannot be put off until the weather is ...

Sleepless................ from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I hate it when you wake up and then can't get back to sleep. Why is that? I tried reading - a novel and a non-fiction. Neither worked. I emptied my head of all the things that I need to get done this week by writing them done. That didn't work. I had a wee snack since I was a bit peckish. Petted the dogs. Finally, after a couple of hours, I went back to sleep, but that put my morning out of sorts.

Oh well - thankfully that doesn't happen every night as I'd go mad.

It ...

I've been everywhere man.................. from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


Before I went to bed last night, I knew there was going to be snow to shovel this morning. It was coming down pretty hard, but the flakes were big and fluffy. The temperature was quite warm and I suspect it would have been a nice night for a walk. I'd already done my steps for the day - I wasn't going out for more.

I decided that instead of going to the gym this morning that my exercise would be to shovel the driveway. I looked out the window first thing to steel myself for the onslaught of ...

Floral Wedding 43, 44 from Virtual Quilter

Interesting design, but colour choice is a bit dull!

That is at least in part due to different computers … it was less dull on the computer when I designed it, but that computer has been replaced. I saw some of my designs on a computer ages ago, and the colours were totally different to what I was seeing on my screen. Since then I often wonder what other people are seeing!

Much brighter!

Wedding Fans OP 49, 50 from Virtual Quilter

I don’t know how it happened, but I haven’t opened this project file for well over a year.

Like good wine it has been maturing in the dark!

I like them both, and unlike a good wine, the project file will still around next year to share.

Cotton Quilters' Guild January Meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

The Cotton Quilters' Guild meets on the first Monday of each month.

Mrs. Mary showed us how she makes these little catch-all boxes.

 Ingrid comes in with beautiful, traditional items every month.

Another stunner by Cleo.

Irma and Mary collect money, take notes, and other official duties. I'll admit, it was enjoyable to sit back and calmly be a member again.

2020 quilt goals from Making A Lather

I have been thinking and thinking about next year's goals. I have spent at least two years working on ufos and I have finished more than I thought I could. But, I am wishing to do something new. I've noticed I went crazy with new, so we will see. I was trying for a top 10 for the year, and next thing I knew, I had 20. I am going to leave it that way, and see how I do. It is 2020 after all.

Vintage Double Wedding Ring Bed Runners Finished and Delivered! from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Remember that Double Wedding Ring UFO that I told you about back in August?  A woman had contacted our Charlotte Quilters' Guild looking for someone who could finish an in-progress Double Wedding Ring quilt that she found in her mother's attic. She had a tub of assembled circular wedding ring blocks, a small section of a handful of blocks sewn together, and lots of tiny wedge pieces cut out.  Based on the client's recollection of when her grandmother had grown too ill to sew, as well as rough dating of the fabrics in the blocks and the techniques ...

Tobermory Retreat Recap & Technology Mixed With Idiots & Scammers from caledonia quilter

I abandoned hubby for six days - he and the dog were feeding each other kibbles and bits for a week.  Although, a friend took pity on him and had him over for a roast beef dinner mid-week so he didn't starve.

I played THREAD CHICKEN and won.

The railing with completed projects.  This is always such a satisfying pic!  Debbie definitely took the prize this year - completing all those wee monthly quilts.  So cute.

Of course, cocktails.

I work on my Double Wedding Ring for one day every year.  The Tobermory cottage is a great space for it.  This ...

Floral Wedding Ring OP 31 from Virtual Quilter

Love it!

Iprefer applique to piecing, so something like this would be my choice for a real Double Wedding Ring quilt.

This project file has no new designs in waiting, and I am trying to decide how to quilt these designs. I would start by outlining applique, but would the blank spaces look better with similar quilted shapes, or use the more traditional pieced version as the basis for quilting?

The One About the Vintage Double Wedding Ring UFO from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Good morning and Happy Monday!  I've had a great weekend with my Lars-of-Ours home from college on a four-day weekend.  It has been so nice to hear him playing my piano, talking and laughing with his brother, and just having my family "intact" again.

Meanwhile, I've been working on a project for a client:

Vintage Double Wedding Ring UFO, On My Design Wall
As you may recall, I met with a woman at the end of August who had discovered an in-progress (or "UFO" -- "UnFinished Object") Double Wedding Ring quilt among her late grandmother's possessions.  I thoroughly ...
