QUILT GUILD TUESDAY from The Quilting Queen Blog

Last Tuesday was the regular meeting of the Brownwood Quilter's Guild.  I had so many things to do that I almost didn't go.  However, I remember we were giving one of our members a special gift and it was the Brown Bag Challenge reveal so I really didn't want to miss it.  Plus it might be one of my last meetings with these ladies.... depending on how quickly the house sells.  So I went.  I'm glad I did.  Show and tell was fabulous as usual!

This is Doniene's second Christmas Quilt.  By Christmas she plans ...

QUILTING EYE CANDY 11-23-14 from The Quilting Queen Online Blog

The house is officially listed for sale.  You can see it on here if you're so inclined!  Hey, you can buy it too... if you're so inclined.  It's a lovely house!  I love it and am going to miss it.  But it gives me opportunity to have a better set up for my studio/quilting machine.  I currently have my quilting machine in the building behind the house with a sewing machine area cramped up in the corner.  Then I have the remainder of my sewing area in the spare bedroom.  Oh and the overflow from that ...

Holiday Lead-Up from Quilting, Piece by Piece

Photo on 11-13-14 at 4.14 PM

A new DNA quilt finally goes on the long arm. (This is the one with the pieced back, which is finally the correct size.)

Rather than complain about the Christmas decorations (most put up after Halloween, thank goodness!) I’ve decided to embrace the whole deal.

Now, of course, this does not mean I’ll be leaving the Thanksgiving table to go to the mall (or waking up at O-dark-thirty to get “deals.) It just means I’ve decided not to be grumpy about it… for today at least.

I mean, shiny tinsel and evergreen boughs are pretty! Be happy ...

A Panel With Piecing & UFO Challenge Update from caledonia quilter

The birds and flowers in the center is a panel.


That was surrounded by patchwork blocks.  I did some large x-hatching in the patchwork and added a featherey flower motif that echos the flowers that are at the top of the panel.

The panel was all outline quilted with additional quilting along the design lines.

Mmm.  Very pretty on the back.
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE 2014 UFO CHALLENGE? 
Geez, I don't think I've mentioned this challenge here on the blog in... quite some time.  Ignorance is bliss, I guess.  Here is the current update.
As you can ...

Quilting Panels from From My Carolina Home

I am never buying another panel. There, I said it.  I mean it.  Really.  I always have such a hard time deciding what to do with all the bits and pieces.  Do I sash them and fit them into a quilt?  Do I add them to other fabric for a tote bag like my Coffee Tote?  Well, this panel is the last one I have, and I decided to quilt all the bits and make a lot of little things.  I have had this thing for several years.  This year I am going to finish it up!  It is Autumn ...

QUILTMAKERS 100 BLOCKS VOLUME 10 BLOG TOUR from The Quilting Queen Online Blog

Welcome to my blog and Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 10 Blog Tour.  This is my third blog tour with Quiltmaker.  This time around I decided to throw in some Patriotic Flair (for those who know me I bet you were so surprised.... right?)   I called my block American Pride.  I did it with the intention of making a quilt for Quilts of Valor.


I put my block together just a little different than the instructions in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 10 Magazine (mine is on page 44).  I cut all three of my strips the same width of ...

Pineapple Log Cabin and Another Mushroom Recipe from caledonia quilter

Ha ha ha - I guess I'm doing a FOODIE post.  Pineapple?  Mushroom?

This is a beautiful tone-on-tone Pineapple Log Cabin quilt.  All the golds and creams make this a wonderful, restful piece.


It is a very large quilt and got a ton of stitch-in-the-ditch in the log cabin blocks, along with a simple little circular motif in the center.  The alternate blocks were quilted with a pretty feather motif.

Wowser - check out the back!
This quilt was done by the mom of the mushroom gal.  So not only do I appreciate her trusting me with this  gorgeous quilt that ...

MORE QUILTING EYE CANDY 11-13-14 from The Quilting Queen Online Blog

I told you yesterday Queenie has been no slacker!  She tried to lay down on the job but I wouldn't let her!  Cathy commented that it sounded like Queenie didn't want to leave Texas.  I don't blame her...

This is Loraine's Carpenter's Star.  She wasn't crazy about the colors.  They were a special request but I love them!










I know you've seen this quilt before... well not this exact quilt but one just like it.  I've lost track of how many Nancy has made.  This one is for her daughter.

QUILTING EYE CANDY 11-12-14 from The Quilting Queen Blog

Did you think Queenie has been on strike?  Oh contraire!  She's actually been working overtime!  So much so that she threw a little fit a few days ago.

See the stitching on the batting and on the backing to the right of the picture.  That's not suppose to be there!  Also note the position of the needle in relationship to the quilt/batting/backing.



This is a snapshot of the screen and the design that's programmed in to stitch out on the quilt.  Notice the cross hair in purple to the right of the screen.  Where the ...

Bargello is not a 4 letter word! from 3 am Inspiration

Welcome to my blog! So excited to participate in Quilter’s Newsletter’s Best Fat Quarter Quilts Blog Tour! My quilt, featured in this edition is called Tilework…note I did not scare you off with the word bargello in the title! Just trying to ease you into that concept!

It's Bargello!

It’s Bargello!!!!

I like bargello because it’s an easy way to add texture and movement to a quilt–in the form we all have come to know and love–strip sets! I chose to combine bargello with a unique layout, almost like

She's Home! from Scraps of Life

Saturday November 1st my friend was discharged from Hospital! 

She was so happy to be home however she did not recognize her home or their vehicle. But once she got inside the house, she was somewhat familiar with her surroundings but not of everything.
 Isn't it strange how our brains work?
She is getting stronger everyday and we are enjoying these precious days with her.
I have been able to visit with her at home many times and I am amazed by her attitude towards it all.
This week they will meet with the Cancer hospital Drs and see ...

Fun Times from Quilting, Piece by Piece

livingroom

So what have I been up to in my missing couple of weeks? Well… there in lies a tale (and at least a couple of tails.)

First of all, I woke up the morning of October 23rd to find half of the front room of my apartment flooded.  The drains had not drained and, having been asleep, I hadn’t bailed.

I needed to pack up my my bookcases and my china cabinet. Bear in mind, by bookcases run the length of my apartment, and my “china cabinet” is three separate units, the center one housing my TV, etc.

So ...
