Motivational Monday from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

It works much better for me to show you on Tuesday what I've been working on since I'm usually running around getting ready for Monday and since I'm the key keeper, I can't be late.

Yesterday was Monday sewing. Always tons of fun, always lots of work gets done. From time to time, I get a few pictures of what the others have completed. They are a pretty prolific group!

I had to laugh at Claudette though. She voiced something that I was thinking just the other day. While the rest of the group seem to ...

Big and small from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I'm not going to panic! Nope - just because I realized that I have a quilt due to a magazine on March 8 and I'm still piecing it - I'm not going to panic!

It's mostly together, it's small so finishing it shouldn't be a problem. But dang it - I knew it was due that date and somehow, it just slipped my mind. All this time working on other things when I should have had this ready for the long arm!  Let's not forget that there is another one due on March 15 so I ...

Farm Girl Vintage show and tell from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Yes - it's time for show and tell. I've not been very timely with these in the past and this year, I'm planning to be more on the ball. The class was held last Saturday so it's not even been a week!!!  Yeah!!!

Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt
There are a lot of people in the class so I'm not going to be able to remember everyone's name!! Well, I remember names, but not everyone so I won't mention any!

For each pattern, there are two sizes of blocks - a 6" finished or ...

Farm Girl Vintage update from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

OH -- guess what happened yesterday. Abby Glassenberg has a blog, a creative business making stuff animals, and she also writes a weekly newsletter about quilting industry news. The blog is called While she naps. I love the newsletter as it contains all kinds of info on stuff that's happening in the industry as well as new ideas. As you know, the big news this week was the closing of Westminster and FreeSpirit fabric companies - home of some very big name designers. 

As I was reading the newsletter yesterday and she chatted about the closures, I saw a link "Elaine ...

Mitten String from Dueling Threads

When I was a child, winter seemed to come with more snow. I love snow.

How many of you go to pull out your gloves, or your child’s gloves to come up with two left (or right) hands!  I even tried to buy multiple pairs of the same kind just so that when needed we could find one matching pair.  Alas.  I was a failure.  We still rarely come up with a pair.

My mom was one smart lady.  Mittens with no front or back can be either a left or a right hand.  Then, to prevent the inevitable ...

Round Up from Polka Dots and Butterflies

Time to post a round up of all the things I have been working on and some past projects.  First up a braided table runner. I love the pastel colors on this and the braided quilt style goes together so quickly.  This will be on my table during the spring months.

Next up is Farm Girl Vintage from Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet.  I had never done sampler quilting and wanted to make one of each block in her book.  I could get lost in all the different blocks, colors, and shapes. I love this one to pieces ...

A long day! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I'm not used to sitting all day. My Fit Bit was in shock. I think in total I did less than 5,000 steps, but it was charging while I took the dogs for a walk.

I think I'll wait until the week is over to reveal what's happening. Nothing big, but I'm in an education session all week. Yikes - funny how quickly your body adapts to not being stuck at a table/desk all day. At least when you're sewing, you're up and down!

While I was waiting for the others to arrive ...

"A Little Sweetness" doll quilt from Carried Away Quilting

Have you seen the new “A Little Sweetness” collection by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake Designs?  This precious line features little girl dresses with bows, aprons, ruffles and polka dots in Tasha’s signature colors.  These dainty dresses just beg to be fussy cut and made into a doll quilt . . . so that’s what I did!

I ordered three fat quarters and some backing fabric from one of my dear sponsors, Stitches ‘N Giggles.  I paired these Tasha Noel pieces with a mint green print I had in my stash. That delicate mint floral is from Elea Lutz’s “Milk ...
