THANK YOU PIGEON FORGE!! from Nestlings By Robin

This is a beautiful shot of 
I was able to eat dinner here one
evening and the food was 
delicious, home cooked, stick
to your ribs eats.

I spent weeks cutting kits
and preparing patterns and 
packing quilts....

so that I could arrive
in Pigeon Forge
and teach in this 
lovely setting...

The day before classes 
started I took a short 
drive toward Gatlinburg.
So Beautiful!!
Found a covered bridge
by accident:)
Here is the wonderful
slate of instructors I 
had the honor to share
a page with!
The FUN banner 
outside of my room 
showing my ...

Friday Frolic! from Humble Quilts

A friend sent me a box of precious blocks! These are just a handful of terrific fabric with madder. All of the blocks are pretty crispy. Any thoughts about washing? Or just piece them together as is? I didn't iron them but they look pretty accurate despite my photo!

I'm continuing lectures that had to be rescheduled from last year. 

It isn't as good as real life, but it is so nice that it is possible to stay connected to quilters!

This is what we call false spring. Just a tease. The hill we were climbing was ...

Teaching at Virtual Quilt Festival, the IQF answer to COVID!!!! from Art and Quilting in Camden

I’ll be one of the five panelists in the Machine Quilting Forum on Saturday, December 5. You can still sign up! Here’s a link to the “Saturday” page. If we weren’t able to go to Houston this year, this is a spiffy alternative! There is a link at the top of the page to enroll. The price for forums, lectures and classes is astonishingly reasonable…. I’ve signed up to be a student too!

I do believe Quilts Inc, the folks that bring you the International Quilt Festival every year (except this one due to COVID) have ...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME:) from Nestlings By Robin

Another year passes and 
how do we mark them?

This year has had many 
challenges and one was all
my work cancellations.
As October approached, 2
contracts remained and both
groups decided to go forward.

So the day before my birthday
I taught one of my favorite
workshops ever, 
to the 
near Leesburg, FL
Beautiful setting and a 
FABULOUS group of ladies.
They really took my inspiration
and made it their own.

Below is Margaret Travis and 
her sister, Marie.
Margaret is known for her Fabulous 
Cheerleading in ...

Well-Loved Ladies QAL: Introduction from Nestlings By Robin
I started collecting these 
Centenarian Sweethearts
pretty soon after I began 
studying to become a
certified quilt appraiser.

The applique' artist in me
was completely fascinated by 
this era of women creating
their own designs too.

I have assembled a collection of quilts 
that are not in the greatest shape but still 
so beautiful in their history and imperfections.

This quilt along has been
well over a year in the making.
Once the Well-Loved Ladies lecture
was finished and being presented
to guilds, requests for a pattern
started and I knew a sampler 
of the different quilts from 
the lecture ...

Zoom! Zoom! from Humble Quilts

It looks like for now Zoom is how most quilt guilds will be meeting. 
I hope it is only temporary. Nothing replaces meeting together in person!

Also, quilts are better in person too!

This is the 2nd quilt I made in a quilt class at the Stitchin' Post in Sisters. 

I even hand quilted it!

I think this is the only label I've ever cross stitched. 
The front of this quilt is showing its 26 year age, but the back is still bright. 
I'm getting a specific lecture ready and need to take good photos. 
The last few ...

At this time of year, we like to pause and be thankful for the many blessings in our lives. As a small company, Through the Needle's Eye has so many things that fill us with gratitude. Our cornucopia overflows with thanksgiving!
