Green Hearts 4 Christchurch – Finished Flimsy from Clever Chameleon

Green Hearts 4 Christchurch quilt. Green nine-patch quilt with pieced appliqué hearts at Clever Chameleon.

Green Hearts for the Healing Hearts for Christchurch Project

A quick post to mark a quick flimsy finish. My Green Hearts 4 Christchurch quilt top is finished. I like it – it was a great way to use up some fabric scraps. Admittedly it’s no show quilt – it was made in a mild hurry by two people of very different sewing styles on two very different machines. But it is filled with caring, and it is very calming in colour and form. It has already performed some significant soothing during its construction – hopefully it will continue to weave its magic ...

It's a good thing these are quick! from Jan's Quilts


I realized after they were finished, that I'd made the Hearts for New Zealand incorrectly. They were the correct size but the wrong design. Today I remade them, top row, and I'm sending both sets because both will work with their quilt design.

Now I'm all caught up and I'm going to actually start a project of my own, a Red and White quilt.  I've been wanting to make one for ages and I've been collecting fabric; so now I'm ready.

May your bobbins always be full,

back in the saddle . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I'm just going to go ahead and admit that I had a hard time typing the post title without laughing.  I know me!

December got busy and then January did too, and now look, only two more days and it's February!  Good gravy . . . please don't tell me 2019 is going to move even more quickly than 2018?!

We had a lovely Christmas time. Our office closed midday on the 20th of December and didn't reopen until January 7!  What a smashing break!  We hung out with family and ate out and did Christmas things. Our Christmas ...

Friendship Heart Quilt from Tea Rose Home

Do you ever look back at your past and the choices that you have made and how they have affected the life you live now? I do. Not that frequently, but sometimes an event happens in my life; mostly good things and I start reflecting on and connecting the past choices to now.

This week, I was surprised by one of the most amazing and generous gifts and many emotions flooded my mind. Over 10 years ago, I started blogging. I was kind of testing what this "blogging" this was all about, and started sharing the things I made. There ...

A Bit About Fusible Products from I Have A Notion

Before I hurt my hand I was working on this bright little quilt. Each of the little stacks of hearts illustrate a brand/type of fusible and how well they stack up, stick and feel. This is designed for touching, to feel the layers and the suppleness or the stiffness of the layers of each of the stacks of fused hearts.(I think the pictures will enlarge if you click on them) Another thing that nice

Free Pattern for Sweet Heart Mug Rug from Gray Barn Designs

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I wanted to make something special for mom.  I had some extra fabric from my Heartland Modern 01 10 18 quilt and thought I would make a few mug rugs/coasters for her.  Below is my finished product, isn’t it a sweet heart?  (Pun intended!)

Mom’s favorite color is pink and she likes to drink tea.  I thought I would test this mug rug today, strictly for quality control purposes, of course!  Yep, it passed the test!

Purple Baby Heart Quilt - First 2018 Quilt Finish from Studio Dragonfly Quilts


This sweet quilt was not even on my list of quilty goals for the year, yet here it is. Two of my coworkers are expecting babies this Spring. One of them is having an early baby shower since a super big work deadline is approaching for her team and time for baby showers will become scarce. I don't know her that well so I asked some of her closer work buddies what she might like. Without skipping a beat, I learned that "she really likes purple". That is all I needed to know.


My purple stash is not large ...

I'm not sure about that as I don't exactly have a safe full of jewels. But I do have quite a few diamond quilts in my Pinterest. Those are just as good, aren't they? Let's decide that after looking at a few jewels. 


110-carat yellow diamond originated in South Africa, making its way to the British crown jewels in 1907 under King Edward VII.I love sparkle and a dash of different and this beauty has them both.

And a few diamond quilts, all of which are on my "heart, quilts" Pinterest board. 

Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend quilt - inspired by the quilt that Jane Austen made.

Zombie Jamboree from Becca's Crazy Projects

The September 2017 UFO Challenge was number 2. Spring Water Designs is trying to keep me on-track to finish so many things this year. 

I got lucky and managed to squeak this one in before October 1st. I call this one Zombie Jamboree. I wanted a quilt design that didn't hide the many fun zombie prints in the bundle, so I went with large blocks and coordinating solids. It isn't a big quilt. It is just big enough to put on the back of the couch for some spooky fun for October. 

I attached and finished the binding ...

mini quilts on canvas from pieceful life

I have been working on a variety of projects lately.  One project has been fun and a little different for me.  I have been trying to figure out a way to frame a mini quilt, and I started playing with the idea of mounting them on canvas.  It is kind of quirky, but I kind of like it too!



wool heart and french knots

hexagon mini quilt on canvas

doily mini quilt on canvas

I painted the heart mini canvas before I mounted it, and I like the darker canvas with the wool heart, but the unpainted canvases makes the mini quilts pop, and I like that too...decisions, decisions : )
