Lessons Learned from From the Strawberry Patch...

I hope to be a lifelong learner; I pray that I never get to that place where I think I've learned all that there is to learn. My grandmother used to tell me that every day spent without learning something new was a wasted day. Recalling that now, probably told to me when I was Jr. High age, was most likely in response to thinking that I already knew it all!  We kept the grandchildren late last

Low Volume Strings and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  I've been working on putting together a string quilt with lots of my low volume fabrics, and though I'm not done playing around with the block layout just yet, so far I love how it's coming together.


Mixed into the low volume strings are some of my favorite spring greens, just for a few pops of color scattered here and there.  These blocks are only six inches, and the strips finish at just one inch wide, so that means that every block has nine different strips in it.  The narrow strips ...

Stitching Up A Storm from From the Strawberry Patch...

Scrappy Shining Stars 65" X 83" Remember all those piles of scraps that I have cut? Well, they're being used. I am holding fast to my guiding word for the year: VISION. I have a goal of making up stacks of scrap quilts in 2020 using what is right under my nose. Here's my first idea. This one will utilize 3.5" squares  in  9" 9-patches combining with 4-patches (2" UF squares for a 3" finished

Progress! from From the Strawberry Patch...

I am still operating with my guiding word for the year: "vision"; I have that, but time is FLYING already. It seems like I take one step forward and two back. Sigh. As promised in my last post, I am reporting on my progress. Here are all the scraps from my bin cut precisely and accurately into sizes that will play nicely together. This amount of work took me two days! So, as impressive as that

Looking Ahead from From the Strawberry Patch...

Looking ahead to 2020; I have chosen a guiding word to focus on: VISION. Well, with this new year, what other word could I possibly choose for twenty/twenty than this one? I am borrowing a page from Quiltdivajulie's book today and choosing a guiding word to lead my path through these next twelve months.  So, in an effort to be guided by the word VISION, I need to look at, and see, what is
