The September 2021 Short List from Quilt Paint Create

I finished two items in August, the circle challenge and the November BOM blocks. I just realized the BOM wasn’t on last month’s list. Sneaky how it cut to the front of the line.

The Short List categories are UFO, garment, original design, hand work, finishing, classes and other. I’ve used this system for 7 years to keep me focused. The categories change as my goals and interests change. Categories with nothing in process will not be listed, only active categories.

Original Design – I think about Open Dialogue often, but it probably won’t see the light ...

The May 2021 Short List from Quilt Paint Create

I finished stitching Christmas Eve in April, but didn’t frame it. In spite of all the time spent on the Crazy Quilt Course, hours of work remain. That project feels like it will never end. Very little sewing happened in April.

The Short List categories are UFO, garment, original design, hand work, finishing, classes and other. I’ve used this system for 6+ years to keep me focused. The categories change as my goals and interests change. Categories with nothing in process will not be listed, only active categories.

Original Design – Open Dialogue is still waiting to be quilted ...

“It’s the Little Things” Kit-of-the-Month from Quiltwoman Blog

The other day I was thinking that I have SO many quilts and a crazy number of pillows that I just don’t “need” any more but I still want to keep making things. I love playing with my GO! Cutter and using up fabric and craft supplies I have on hand. So I thought about where I could put small wall hangings and of course there are lots of little spaces around the house where I could hang up my new wall art like above doorways and skinny little spots between door frames. I’m sure there are many ...

Lifetime Achievement Award and Kits from Appalachian Quilts



Prodigal Son, Army Son and their families went to Florida to see Princess Daughter.  While they were gone, we kept Prodigal Son's puppy, Copper.  We had forgotten what it was like to have a sweet, time-sucking puppy around.  He was such a snuggler.  They came to pick him up last night and we were discussing their trip.  I asked how Puddin Pop did on the plane (she's flown before) and Army Son's wife told me the cutest story.  They hit some pretty rough turbulence on their flight to Chicago.  She had a white-knuckle grip on Prodigal Son ...

Tea & Crumpets from Nestlings By Robin

IT'S HERE!
August brings 
September AQ magazines
to mailboxes all over:)
Soon to be found on 
shop shelves near you.
Within the pages you
will find my cheerful
Tea & Crumpets.

This piece was originally
done in a completely 
different colorway
and in the end we
went with brights!

Before I can order fabrics,
I have to do a test block...
Luckily I had some 
brights laying around 
to play with.

I know paper piecing intimidates
some of you but I would encourage
everyone to have another go at it.
Organization is KEY!
See all the tidy piles and I ...

Sunday Stash July 12, 2020 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in this week.
SS yellowThe start the next shirt plan got sidetracked. When I laid out the pattern, I found the fabric was discolored in places. Washing lightened the marks but didn’t remove them. They were scattered enough I couldn’t cut around them.
I moved on to plan B.
very cherryMy sister sent me this kit last year. I saw feathers and ribbon candy quilted in the frames until I did a mock up. The fancy quilting competed with all those patterned fabrics. Sometimes simple is better.
I finished it for a yard out. Now I need to ...

Word of the Year from 120 Blocks

I have never before had a word of the year. I’ve seen other people with words of the year, but I never really got into that. Maybe I did once or twice but those were words I forced myself to … Continue reading

Sunday Stash December 29, 2019 from Quilt Paint Create

I can’t believe it’s the last Sunday Stash of 2019. Every year seems to pass more quickly than the last.
My goal this year was to use more fabric than I bought, which obviously didn’t happen. I’m looking forward to better results in 2020. Staying away from the sales really is the key to not buying fabric.
Two yards in this week through a Christmas gift from my sister. These panels are great for practicing free motion quilting.

Sunday Stash November 3, 2019 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in this week. My local quilt shop has a sale going and I stayed away. I need nothing and would have bought something had I gone.
I finished Pineapple Punch for 1 yard out.
pineapple punchThis is a Joann’s kit that included the panel, backing and binding. I don’t normally use panels, but these kits are great for practicing free-motion quilting and choosing quilting designs. The designs didn’t work so well on some of my quilts this year. Panels are an easy way to play with design and technique.
I’d like to get my Net ...

Hello quilting friends. Fabric kits are now available for my two newest patterns: 9-Patch Pivot and Star Watch. The long-awaited Harvest Road fabric is in stock at LouLou’s Fabric shop, and the kits are ready! Will one of these pretty quilts become your next project?




9-Patch Pivot is a fat quarter friendly quilt that finishes at 66” x 77”.  My favorite thing about this pattern is how all the prints in the fabric line have a chance to shine. And the Harvest Road collection by Lella Boutique for Moda is totally shine-worthy!


Star Watch is a jelly roll friendly ...
