More new techniques from Quilting and More...

I’m working very slowly on the Bethanne Nemesh class I wrote about a little while ago. So this photo shows the various things I’ve been practicing, and I’ll explain what each is. At the top left is the first sample I showed you, with the beaded piping. To its right is a sample with more […]

Learning a new technique from Quilting and More...

If you’ve seen many of the quilts I’ve posted here, you may have noticed that I love to use corded piping next to the binding. Now, though, I may be “kicking it up a notch.” I learned of a class online offered by Bethanne Nemesh, whose work I’ve long admired, so I gave in to […]

Mortally wounded from Quilting and More...

I’ve been MIA for a bit longer than I’d realized! I’ve been working on a new quilt (what else is new?), and that leads me to today’s post. No, not the new quilt, but related …. A few months ago, I showed you a new pin cushion I’d hand embroidered. I’d been keeping this one […]

Interesting Dresdens from Quilting and More...

During my trip to the Houston Festival in November, I saw a pattern that I thought was just too cute to pass up. Along with the pattern, I also bought a “grab bag” of Cherrywood fabrics — all pieces in different colors and approximately 8″ x 10″ in size — to make the various houses. […]

Zippered jewelry bag from Quilting and More...

Years ago I made a jewelry bag for travel, but I’ve always thought it was far too large for my needs, though I really liked all of its features. However, I recently saw a pattern from Indygo Junction for the Store & Go Zipper Case and thought it might work better for me. The pattern […]

Disappointment from Quilting and More...

That’s the name of my latest quilt, because I had a “vision” of what I wanted to do, but I kept changing my mind. So the final product isn’t anything like what I’d originally intended, and I’m a bit disappointed. Oh well — live and learn. This is a small quilt, approximately 24″ x 24″. […]

At last! from Quilting and More...

It seems that I’ve been working on this quilt forever. Adding to the delay in finishing it was the fact that I had to order more crystals when I ran out of some of the colors I was using. But it’s finally done! Okay, I still need to block it, but that’s minor. It’s impossible […]

Almost … from Quilting and More...

Normally, if I were posting a picture of a quilt label, that would mean I was finished with the quilt. Not this time, though. I’ve finished the piecing, the quilting, the binding, and designing and embroidering the label, so what’s left? This quilt is going to get some bling! I bought about a zillion (okay, […]

Art Quilts Maine 2017 Challenge, Mixed Media Mashup, is currently on tour in Maine! A dozen quilts developed in response to the challenge statement join another eight small portraits created by AQM artists.

Several artists participated in the "portrait challenge", working to create a human portrait in a small format. Each portrait had to include a piece of dark red fabric. See if you can find the red fabric ...
