Reruns Lecture, Antique Quilts and Outings from Humble Quilts

I had a whirlwind trip to Washington state to present my lecture, Reruns; Quilts Inspired by the Past. 
I had checked out my map earlier to see what was on the way to my SIL's that I could stop and get a bit of exercise. 

I ended up about 15 minutes away from where I was staying. I stopped at the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge. Of course, the middle of the day, at 85 degrees,  isn't the best time to see wildlife, but there was a nice breeze blowing off the Puget Sound. This was an estuary where ...

Quilt Lectures- Now and Then from Humble Quilts

Last week I had the pleasure of sharing "The 10 Reasons I Quilt" with the Mt Hood Quilt Guild.
Thank you all so much for the warm welcome and kind comments on my lecture!! 


 I try and figure out why I am so non-photogenic at my lectures and I think I put my finger on it. I'm very expressive and that comes across in the photos. I'd rather have fun sharing about my quilts then put everyone to sleep! <I didn't see one person sleeping! yay!>
 It was the first time I've shared this quilt at ...

Marvelous Monday from Humble Quilts

I got a bit of sewing done over the weekend but it is my string quilt and won't share that until next week. 
I started to gather my quilts for next month's lecture. I would like to bring my newer quilts so will be changing up the lecture.  I thought while I was going through quilts I'd hang a few ones too. 


This springy/summery quilt was designed by Cheri Payne. 

We have this old tv stand that I use to store some quilts in. Once when my son's friend came home with him from college ...

My Visit to Tehachapi Mountain Quilters from Goer

Last week I traveled down to Tehachapi for a visit to the Tehachapi Mountain Quilters. I met the program chairs from the group last April at the SCCQG Meet the Teachers event.

After a long drive, I rolled into town on Sunday evening, ready to join them Monday morning for their guild meeting. My new Island Batik scarf made it's debut since it was the perfect match the my top. I couldn't resist stopping for a quick photo of the beautiful mountain view on my way to the meeting.

I shared my My Quilting Journey lecture with a ...

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019 from Nestlings By Robin

How did I celebrate?  Very quietly:)  My year review is already done by completing the 31 day blog challenge.
If you missed it, you can read about it Here, Here, Here, and Here!

I am not picking a word this year as so many do.  Instead I will keep plugging away with the skills I have been nurturing in 2018 (hopefully a bit better though:)

I will have at least one new magazine project out this year and one in the works for 2020.
There are 3 lectures with signed contracts and 2 workshops.  If it isn't signed then ...

Long Island Road Trip from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye


A couple of weeks ago, I (Teri) went to Mineola on Long Island to visit the Evening Star Quilters. They had invited me to do a lecture at their meeting, followed by a class—this Eight-Pointed Star with Sprigs of Berries (above), from Elly Sienkiewicz's book, Spoken Without a Word. This was the very first block that I taught, so I was thrilled that they had chosen it; the star has such a simple elegance to it.

I asked my friend, Kristy, to join me for the road trip. Not only was she an invaluable help to me, organizing ...

We do know, we just can't believe that time goes so fast!  I have been SUPER busy this year and no signs of slowing until December.

We were given tickets to see Jim Gaffigan on New Year's Eve at Amelie Arena here in Tampa.  His opening act was hilarious!  It is great to see so many people come out to see a comedian vs. watching ...

The Longarm Schoolhouse is Back! from Quilted Joy

It’s beginning to feel like crunch time! I’ll be teaching a lots of different classes this fall and traveling to different parts of the country to teach those classes.

The classes for my Longarm Schoolhouse are a little daunting, because it’ll be 8 brand new classes I’m ...
