Charity Quilts from Leftover Blocks from Mulberry Patch Quilts

Every year I like to make little quilts or knit tiny hats for Mikayla’s Grace. So when they put out an urgent request for specific needs, I signed up to fill the need for 10 medium size baby quilts to support families with small infants in the NICU (Neonatal ICU).

I had some leftover quilt blocks that worked perfectly for the center of each quilt. The “Fantasy Folk Art” fabrics by Contempo (Bernatex) are so beautiful, and I had enough coordinating fabric for the extra borders..

It’s a snap to figure out the math using EQ8 (Electric Quilt ...

Boxed Tapa Quilt from Alamosa Quilter

My long arm quilter is back from her holiday break. Yay!


This is a new kit we have available at my shop. The name of the pattern is Boxed Tapa and it is a batik quilt. The main fabric (the leaves) are a panel! Batik panels are rare because they are so time-consuming to print. Just like all batiks, they are all hand printed. These are some of the softest batiks I've ever handled too.

The quilt is 53" by 66" finished. Did you know I opened an Etsy shop for my "real" shop? Here is a link to ...

OPAM January 2020 from Daisychain Quilter

I really enjoyed getting started on this year seasonal gift projects.  I am planning to make at least one item for the 'end of year season'.  For some crafters it is tooooooo early to mention the word Christmas.
Not me, I am getting an early start with this Santa Wine Bottle Topper.  These are very popular on Instagram.
Everyone needs a key fob.  It is a great way to using up all my scraps. I will probably make a whole bunch off these key fobs for my Etsy shop and well as for my gift box.  It is always handy ...

February Means a New Goal from Needle and Foot

It is February!! A. new month means another goal to set for what I will accomplish in the sewing room. This month I plan to finish assembling the quilt top I am making with the Mosaic Mystery QAL hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs.

The fabric pull for my Mosaic Mystery Quilt.

I have really enjoyed making this quilt and it is exciting to be this close to finishing up the top. Cheryl did such a great job with the drafting of this pattern. Her instructions were great. One would think this would make it easy for me to ...

It’s the Weekend! from Needle and Foot

My husband retired in July of 2019. It has been such a fun adjustment for both of us. He is just getting to the point where he doesn’t automatically think he will be going back to work on Monday. We often have to think twice to remember what day of the week it is. Mostly, it is like life is all one long weekend, which is awesome!

Snowing lightly right up the road.

This weekend we decided to spend a few days up the mountain at our little bungalow in Downieville. We haven’t been here in a couple ...

Another Christmas Gift from Daisychain Quilter

I am busying trying to get everything stitched and posted ready for Santa to deliver on the big day.

This is a pattern that you can cut and sew within a hour.
This is a single bottle bag. This is a pattern I designed for our Bon Couture Design Etsy shop. The pattern is for a double bottle bag. I have altered the size. 
I love making gifts for family and friends. I spend a lot of time choosing patterns and fabrics especially for each person.  I often start planning in the spring but usually never start stitching until a ...

Ditsy Print from Daisychain Quilter

I really love this fabric but it is getting harder to find it in the shops or at craft shows. I have the feeling it is being discontinued, which is a shame as it is a lovely fabric.
So if I find it whilst at a show do not be surprise if you spot me buying a bolt.

Wool Artwork Inspired by Ellen Giggenbach from One Designer Pursuing her Dreams

Wool applique has me in its clutches! That sounds worse than it is, really. But I am having a great time finding inspiration and making unique, not-necessarily-quilted items. Today’s...

Placemats and Poilane Sour Dough Bread from Georgia Girl Quilter

Everyone needs and uses placemats. And if you have the time, it’s easy to make your own and a great way to use up fabric scraps and small pieces of batting if you're quilting the placemats.

Just think of all the different colors and designs that can be incorporated in making your own unique placemats that go with your very own color scheme and personal decor. No more being content with the colors and designs offered by the big box stores, allowing some unknown buyer to determine your decor.

Here are some placemats I’ve made over the ...

Quilt Shows and Quilt Alongs from Needle and Foot

Good morning all. I am enjoying a lovely, quiet morning here with coffee and some blog reading and I thought it a good time to catch up. It has been a while right?

Last weekend I spent a couple of days as a vendor at a fun show in the small town of Brownsville. I can’t say how much I enjoyed this little show. It was so relaxed and the people, quilters and wanderers both, were incredibly friendly. This guild has a membership of about 30 people with roughly half being very active. The town has a population of ...

New material coming! from Maria the Quilter

I know you probably come here for the photos, because, well let’s be honest: in the quilting world, words mean far less than photos. I can explain a stitch but when you see a picture of it, that’s WAY more meaningful. In person? EVEN better!

What I’m here to say is that I am here. I haven’t been posting pix – I had a bit of an issue with my tools but am almost back to full capability there. I have been busy writing on my personal blog (here).

So in the meantime, PLEASE please visit my ...

Keeping Out of Trouble from KT Quilts 4 Fun



The Camel ear warmer and scarf set above is made of soft acrylic yarn for easy care and durability.  The pretty stitch I used made it almost double thick as well as adding great texture.


This scarf is proving to be difficult to part with.  The 100% wool got softer the more I worked with it!


I just love super bulky yarn, and this roving worked up beautifully


It's also my favorite style.  The ends are sewn together, leaving it long enough to double up for a snug neck warmer.


Leave it single, and you can keep your ears ...

LITTLE MOUSE BABY QUILT PATTERN from Sewing Lab




Finally this year we are having a real fall! Although I miss California a lot, now I realize how much I missed having seasons! It's fun to see how everything around us changes so much each day, the colors, the weather, our clothes and also the light. We are approaching to the dark season here in Norway, the days are shorter each day and even though it scares me a bit, I know I will handle it. I mean, I'm a homey person and if all this cold and darkness have something good, it must be spending quality ...
