The Wayback Machine and 5 New BOTM/SAL’s Added… from Seams To Be Sew

Hi Everyone, I’ve a little bug going on with my site at the moment, it has to be due to some of the wordpress updates lately. I’m working to try and find it. It seems to affect older pages on this site and not the newer ones tho, but if you try reloading the page you may see it also, it kinda looks like the path to the images. The bug affects all images, so I’ll be testing my plugins over the next few days to see which are current and which aren’t. I’m hoping ...

Inside: Fabulous quilts from 2019’s UQSM quilt show.

We have an annual quilt show in Salt Lake City, UQSM (or Utah Quilting & Sewing Marketplace.) It is a world-class show featuring machine quilting from all over the world.

Diamonds Are Forever… from Seams To Be Sew

When I signed up for this blog hop it was in my mind to show off the baby blanket I had just finished for my new grand nephew who was born at the end of January. I spent each day working on this quilt for just a little bit of time over the last year or so, and all of the blocks were created entirely in my machine embroidery hoop. Sadly, when I went to take the pictures off the camera today something has happened to the flash card and every file on the card seems to be corrupted… I ...

Stripes and Strings… All About Strings Today At Seams To Be Sew… from Seams To Be Sew

Tis quite funny as I prepared for this hop with my project, I kept thinking Stripes and not Strings, but quite by accident my project fits into both words… A big thanks to Carla for hosting this blog hop theme and I must say I am looking forward to what everyone created. I once made a striped quilt, back in the 90’s, Jinny Beyer did quite a few lines with border type stripes that became popular to fussy cut your shapes out of and then combine them to create a new look to the print. It was an awesome ...

I love blog hops, they are so much fun and it is a great way for me to see things that people are doing around the web.

Novelty fabrics have long been a favorite fabric type of mine ...

I’m always sad on the last day of a blog hop… this one has been really fun seeing the crazy projects, whether you think they are crazy or not, sometimes it’s just the story behind the project that makes it really crazy as we have all seen so far.

Its hard to believe that tomorrow will be the last day but so far and I know you might agree with me its’ been great seeing all the craziness happening in our little quilt world here on the net.

Quilt Qwazy Queens Starts Today… from Seams To Be Sew

It’s that time of the year again when Worldwide Quilting Day rolls around to what seems to always be the third Saturday in March. I’m kinda waiting for the 1st of March to fall on a Sunday to see if that date changes, but I won’t know until next year when it will finally fall on a Sunday. Next year it will either fall on the 14th or the 21st. We shall see

My Craziest Project…. Today For QQQ… New Patterns Released Also… from Seams To Be Sew

My project is a wearable. When I first started quilting back in 1988, it never occurred to me to make wearables as a quilted project. At that time, rotary cutters were not even a widely used product in the quilting world. I had already been using a rotary cutter for cutting patterns with for clothing. I used drapery weights instead of pins for my patterns and then cut around those patterns with a rotary cutter. Suffice it to say when I took my first quilting class in January of 1988, I blew everyone in class away with how fast I ...

Another BOTM?… Possibly!! from Seams To Be Sew

This one is not necessarily a Block of the Month type project, but more of a technique of the month type project. However, it is limited in that the workbook tutorial files are located for download in Jeanne’s Facebook group. To my knowledge, Jeanne doesn’t have a blog or website where she can offer these other than on Facebook. To me tho, if you’re not on Facebook, you are truly missing out on all the great goings-on that happen with it. So many great groups and so much inspiration. I guess some would say the same about ...

Dust Off An Old Book Today…. from Seams To Be Sew

My sincerest apologies, my post is late this morning. I went to bed last night and totally forgot to write my post. So this is a very quick post on the project I made for this hop.. Bea at Beaquilter  is the hostess of this hop and such a great idea. Over the last few months I can honestly say I’ve been thru most of my old books… and by that I mean throwing them out. Sadly, the majority of my books were ruined in the flooding of our basement last June and July when we had those hail ...

Just Showing My Wings Today… from Seams To Be Sew

At the time I noticed this blog hop was at play… I was already working on trying to finish up my newest nephew’s projects for his birth which came in late January. I am now a Grand Aunt and I am thrilled beyond belief… Almost like someone who would become a grandmother. So, I decided to put together this little project real quick as I’d been wanting to create it and had not had a lot of time to get to it. It’s turned out far cuter than I’d first imagined. Sometimes when working with fabrics ...

I do apologize for my recent absence. between working on Sue/Sam’s to get them ready for release, the Cupcake of the Month, and TTNBC, I’ve also had the flu, have been dealing with more leg issues.. Apparently, according to an Ultrasound I had, I have something called leaking veins. The doctor wants me to have laser surgery that she isn’t sure will even work to resolve the issue. My question is, why should I pay for a surgery that may not work? So, I’m debating it, in the meantime, another sore has cropped up on ...
