Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

This little cutie was pieced by Mary for Annapolis Quilts for Kids. I love these scrappy quilts. 
This one was pieced by Trudy. I added the borders to bring the size up to the average size of these quilts. Both of these will be headed to Annapolis Quilts for Kids next month for binding.

Tool Tip Wednesday from Becca's Crazy Projects

On Saturday I broke my retractable holder for my snips. I slip the click onto the collar of my shirt so my scissors are always handy when I'm working with the long arm. This also ensures I don't leave them on the surface of the quilt. 
Thankfully, I had a back up clip in my desk. The scissors are Fiskars micro-tip. They are perfect for keeping next to your sewing machine or in your sewing bag. I'm pretty sure I have three pair: one in my hand sewing kit, one for my long arm, and a third ...

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

This fun little quilt was created with the use of at least three quilters. One pieced the blocks. 
A second assembled the blocks into a quilt top. 
And a third quilted the top, batting, and backing together. 

I'll hand it back to Rebecca (the second quilter) for the binding. Such a great community project that will find a home through Comfort Cases. What are Comfort Cases? From their website: Comfort Cases are backpacks filled with comfort and personal care items for youth entering the foster care system. Typically, children are given a trash bag to pack up their belongings ...

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I dropped off thirteen quilts at the last Annapolis Quilts for Kids meeting. The last of them I will drop off this year. 
These little quilts, pieced by other members of Annapolis Quilts for Kids were part of that drop off. 
This one included minkie type fabrics. I was more pleased with the result than I thought I would be. I hope it makes someone very happy.

Time to sew! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Super day alert!!! I accomplished a lot yesterday! OK -- not everything I should be working on, but that's OK - all progress is good!  

I tried printing something, and of course, my printer wouldn't work. So I'm going to attempt that again today! I swear, there are days when technology crashes on me, just to keep me humble! 

I am determined to NOT let any of those year-long classes become a UFO so let's see what happened. One of the projects is done, which you'll see when I post the show and tell. But one down ...

Published from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Oh my -- another magazine quilt published! This time it's in the Fons and Porter Quick + Easy Quilts. I hadn't forgotten about this quilt as I already have it back, and it's been sitting on the banister. I've been looking for the magazine for a while, but I couldn't it when I went to Indigo last week. The selection of magazines is pretty sketchy these days. Although I do find that some stores are better stocked than others.

Vitual Retreat from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

It was another successful Virtual Retreat! So many people stopped in to say hello. We had people from Germany, the US, Western Canada, and all over Ontario! So nice to see a few new faces join us and to see the regulars! I left at 9 PM both nights, and they were still sewing and chatting! 

I didn't end up taking a nap yesterday, but I did take a long walk, and I slept like a log last night. I'm feeling good this morning, and all fired up to get to spin class. 

Well, I don't have ...

This one I chose a fun meander that says "meow" throughout. Perfect for this cute cat quilt.

Take a long breath from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 Good morning! Oh boy  -- it's been a super busy morning and well, OK - so I got up early. But that's simply because I went to bed early. I did get my required hours of sleep. But as I lay in bed this morning contemplating what I have to do - well, there's ZERO time for laying around! 

I have to say this mouth breathing versus nose breathing has me in a tizzy. I'm so conscious of it now that I'm not sure I was ever a mouth breathing. WAIT -- that's a total lie. I think ...
