When You Wish Upon A Star, You May Get A Hero… from Seams To Be Sew

Today I am participating in the Wish Upon A Star blog hop hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. Her fun idea says our project needs to include a star somewhere in the project. With this hop, I thought about what I could do carefully, and when you see it, hopefully, you’ll agree, it’d be great for Memorial Day, Father’s Day or even the 4th of July… I’ll be releasing the pattern tomorrow morning along with another cute little pattern I’ve done for the 4th of July. In the meantime, enjoy my project for ...

Can you believe it, we are three provinces and territories away from finishing up Canada. I expect August to be the last Canadian release with the Northwest Territories in June, Saskatchewan in July, and Newfoundland/Labrador in August. Once they are done, I will release 3 USA patterns each month as I am really trying to finish these up by end of the year or early next year. Please note… EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY … new Flickr changes are in store. Because of changes coming to Flickr next week, I need to change how the Flickr Reward is done. From here on in ...

Friends to Stay from Romany Quilting

We have had friends to stay for a few nights, hence the recent flurry of baking going on.  And perusing recipe books – what shall I cook for the evening meals?  Don’t know why I get in a tizzy, after all I cook each day, but you always want it a to be little bit special when friends came to stay, don’t you?  Needless to say, there's been no sewing happening this week, although I did show off my latest creations.  My friend Merilyn is not a quilter, but she knits, spins, and has dabbled in stitcheries and ...

Monday Monday from Butterfly Threads



I'm off to South Carolina for a trunk show tonight and a workshop tomorrow! If' you're in the area I hope you'll join us. We're going to have fun!


Kelly is staying home with the animals while I'm away because the boys are off having fun riding roller coasters at Cedar Point with their dad.


We will all be back home in a few days, and then we are leaving again for Arizona! My niece is graduating and we thought we would take a peek at the Grand Canyon while we are there.

I hope ...

A Week of it from Romany Quilting

After having a fun weekend away last week, sadly I’ve been feeling a bit miserable this week.  Presumably picking up a bug which has left me with a raging sore throat, coughing and sneezing the week away, with thumping headaches too.  So I’ve been self medicating with these two, plus Strepsils for my throat and Panadol for my headaches.  My goodness, sorry to sound such a misery, and luckily after a week it’s starting to ease.  My symptoms seem to clear up during the day, but sadly that nasty cough is just waiting for me to lie ...

Cupcake Of The Month – May and TTNBC Blocks 11 and 12 Released… from Seams To Be Sew

Today’s release is Twas The Night Before Christmas Blocks 11 and 12 and I’m also releasing Cupcake Of The Month – May… Shocking I know that I could be so early on a block not really due before the 15th of May, but May is a very busy month for me, so I’m releasing it today to have it … out of the way I guess you could say.

I need a new List from Romany Quilting

With a couple of finishes lately I needed to write a new list of my UFOs.  What to add – that was the question?  I rummaged around the crates hiding in the wardrobe and pulled out some UFOs to add to my list.  Sadly, I have come to the conclusion that I will never run out of things to do.  As well as familiar projects lurking in the depths of the crates, there were also some that I barely remembered.  I selected one large project and one smaller one, as I like to have a bit of variety.

So my List ...

Home from Texas from Butterfly Threads




I had such a nice time in Texas! The quilters of the Golden Triangle Quilt Guild of Beaumont were so delightful. I visited the week after their big quilt show so they were experiencing a bit of "quilt show hangover" as anyone who's put on a major quilt show knows how that feels! They were so kind and cheerful and fun to be around even though they were clearly exhausted.

I got to meet the one and only Anne, the creator of the Strip Stick, which I had just been demoing at Tiny Stitches during the Shop Hop. I ...

Slow Stitching and Stirring the Pot from Romany Quilting

It’s nice to sit and relax with some hand stitching.  I like to sit at the dining table when I stitch during the afternoon and the Autumn sunshine comes through the sun filter curtains.  Nice and warm, but not too hot.  I did a little hand quilting on my Winter Quilt Festival panel, stitching around the teeny tiny printed block patterns which surround the centre panel.  I’m not the world’s best or fastest hand quilter, so this could take me a while.  But no hurry, I’m quite enjoying this project.

Welcome To My Day on the IB Use it Up Hop… from Seams To Be Sew

Today I’ve chosen to make a small project for this hop. It is a machine embroidery in the hoop design using Island Batiks and fleece. The design is created entirely in the hoop except for the small buttons and bows you use to attach the add-ons. I didn’t make the addons because I intend to create my own which I just haven’t had the time to do as yet, but the project is done and ready for them to be done, so when I have some time I’ll get them done.  I’ve also created a ...

Island Batik Hop – Use It Up Starts Today from Seams To Be Sew

I’m so not a fan of not announcing hops that are supposed to take place without any advance notice, but this one has no advance notice to it other than the few mentions I’ve made on my blog about it. Until this morning I didn’t even realize a logo had been made for it. I should have just gone ahead and made my own because to me a post without any pictures at all is boring, boring and more boring. Who wants to read it without something that entices you to read it. Not me. I like ...

I’m Five, and Feelin Faaaaaaaaaaabulous!!! from Seams To Be Sew

Heya Everyone, I mentioned last week that this week was my blog’s birthday… She was five years old this past Monday. I’ve been very busy trying to get Sue/Sam ready for release and really didn’t want to post until it was, but I’m realizing that I’m letting time slip by as I try to finish those patterns up. So I am writing today to offer a little free pattern I created for celebrating 5 years of being a blogger. With another 5 years, I should be able to make it to 1000 posts… for ...

Monday, Monday from Butterfly Threads



Currently I am...

1. Struggling between doing housework or sewing on a binding? Both need to be done, one is obviously more enjoyable than the other. So I'm blogging instead. LOL

2. Putting off lots of work details that involve travel arrangements, contracts and paperwork that aren't nearly as fun as the actual quilting and teaching parts of my job!

3. Missing my Kelly but so thankful she came home this weekend and gave me an excuse to get absolutely NOTHING done on my "to do" list.


4. Listening to my dogs sigh loudly because they still can ...

Rainy Day Sewing from Val's Quilting Studio

It's been that kind of weekend where the lamps remain lit all day long. Pouring rain throughout the day and night. As I wake this morning, the sky continues to be a sheet of grey with dark, rain clouds billowing on the horizons. The birds chirp and flutter about as they enjoy moment of reprieve.

April showers, right? 

My favorite kind of sew day.
Especially when one has bright happy fabrics to play with! 
Wishing you a wonderful day.

I specialize in edge to edge pantographs with over 100 designs to choose from.
