May I Have Your Attention.. from Lisa H Calle's Blog

 

After five very long years I am pleased to announce that I have finished this quilt.

The photograph below was taken back in 2013, five very long years ago.

Cherrywood fabric, the love of my life when it comes to material. I am sure that is nothing new to my readers, and quilting friends.

This quilt has taken me on a journey of self discovery and a very difficult lesson in letting go. It will surprise no one to hear me say that I can be a little bit of a control freak and perfectionist (and that’s putting it ...

I REPEAT…… from Lisa H Calle's Blog

A Mantra I Have Lived By

I have stated in the past that I will typically have three projects going simultaneously (cray or not, that’s me).  My typical circus involves one in the piecing state, one incorporating an appliqué project, and finally one pertaining to quilting.  Like I said that would all be “15 years worth of typical” until now.

To be honest and bring clarification to the previous statement:

I currently have one in the quilting process.  Yes, it feels to me as if it will be the never-ending project BUT I haven’t refuse to give up ...

So Long, Farewell 2017 BUT from Lisa H Calle's Blog

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season and a wonderful weekend ringing in the New Year!  I was very blessed to have all my boys together during the past couple of weeks. They always bring so much laughter, tons of craziness and endless love to our home. It certainly makes focusing on work difficult.  Those moments of having my boys under one roof for any length of time is simply priceless!

I will be implementing one major word into 2018.  And the word of the year is “EDUCATION“.  Yes, eduction with be the foundation for this quilter over the ...

Once Upon A Quilt from Lisa H Calle's Blog

 

 

Recently I had the pleasure of traveling to Ft Lauderdale and taught at a retreat with Angie Steveson and Carol Ann Waugh.  Wow, I had a blast!  Let’s begin by saying this always freezing cold girl was headed somewhere warm!  Oh yeah!  The only downside was that it was the perfect weather for doing my favorites thing in the world, besides quilting, which is playing golf.   The mild temperatures and the bright shining sun teased me with their amazing golfing conditions.  I made a silent pact with weather gods of Ft Lauderdale that I would return, in the not ...

Never Fear Lisa’s Here! from Lisa H Calle's Blog

 

Have I really been gone a little more than a month without posting on here? Are you kidding me? Being sick and trying to prepare for the Houston International Quilt Festival really through a curve ball into my dedication to blogging.  But I am now back!

The Houston International Quilt Festival was as always a total blast, no shocker there.  I’m sad to report that my redheaded assistant was not in attendance.  It appears she is a hot commodity and has a 9-5 job which prevents her from joining me on trips such as these.  The studio is not ...

My 30th Birthday Weekend from 3and3quarters

Let’s be honest, I’m not one for the attention that birthdays bring. I’m a typical wall-flower type of gal who likes to happily sit in the wings and watch the world float by.

However, the week leading up to along with the weekend that my 30th fell on, ended up being one of the busiest I’ve had in a long time…

So you know how I rave on about being a Florist and such? Well I actually put my skills into use and only did flowers for my first ever wedding!!!

Pa National Quilt Extravaganza! from Lisa H Calle's Blog

 

I was teaching at the PNQE 2017!  In a shocker my students were incredible!  This event had me teaching three classes on the long arms, which were kindly provided by Val of, The Longarm Network, thanks  so much Val!  Our tech support was provided by Matt (we would have been lost without him).  Typically we have the double duo team of Matt and Keith but unfortunately Keith was not in attendance; he was greatly missed.  AND those that enjoy their company during the evening really missed the pair as I have heard they are very entertaining!

knitting socks | finished. Week 21 or something. from unsophisticated Jejune

IMG_4216

Y A Y !

I finished the socks!

erm…I did actually finish them about two weeks ago, but I was too overwhelmed with new job training and new friend dating ( I found a fellow textiles lover at work! ) to even think about words and typing. But you don’t mind about that, I’m sure! I can fully say that I am living it up like a proper Portlander now and it is just great. I swear I’m going to start yoga soon, then I will be the ultimate Portland resident! Just you wait. I did see a pattern ...

Quilt Collection

It is nice to meet you. My name is Hannah. Let me first introduce you to some of my quilts.
