HOUSE WARMING PARTY BOM from The Quilting Queen Blog

Wouldn't you like to get this for a House Warming Party Gift?  I sure would!  I've only received one house warming gift that I can remember.  It was a set of towels from my brother-in-law and they were luscious, soft, beautiful white towels.  I still use them put there are no longer soft, beautiful, white towels anymore.... 11 years of use take a toll on things.

Ok, back to the House Warming Party Block of the Month Quilt. B&B Quilting in Buda, Texas is sponsoring the block of the month.  This quilt was a challenge for me ...

Wedding Quilt from Quilt Vine


On October 4th a nephew of mine got married. Of course I wanted to make them a quilt. My initial thought was to ask them what color they would like it, but on second thought I decided against that. I know how my color taste has changed over the years and I wanted their Wedding Quilt to be timeless. So I decided to go neutral. I also needed this quilt to be a simple pattern since I started it about 2 weeks before the wedding. With it being a simple quilt I could let my quilting make up for that ...

QUILT GUILD TUESDAY 9/21/2014 from The Quilting Queen Blog

These months roll around too fast.  I swear it was just last week that I went to the Brownwood Quilter's Guild.  Oh wait, maybe it was the last week that I was home!

We're greeted by Doniene with tickets for the "Penny Auction".  This month are some lovely pumpkin pincushions and pot holders.  Nope I didn't win them but I'll show you who did later.


And some lucky lady is going to win all these "Card Trick" blocks; our block for this month.  Nope that wasn't me either.... but it was Elaine.


And for Show ...

THE GRIM RIPPER from The Quilting Queen Blog

QUILTING EYE CANDY 09-19-14 from The Quilting Queen Blog

Rosie at Scarlet Today has had this sample in her booth for quite some time.  She said she need to get it quilted before it was too tattered to do anything with.

These little Brownies are so cute.  You can get the pattern here and do your own redwork to make yourself a Brownies Quilt.  It's a small quilt, only 37x37".





I love what Rosie did with this panel and the pineapple block pattern.

I quilted an edge to edge snowflake pattern with off white thread.



And there is one more quilt I quilted for her but I know ...

No. 500 from Prairie Moon Quilts

No fanfare. No party hats. No confetti fell from the ceiling.

No horns. No balloons. No cake even.

Just the birds chirping. Jasper bleating in the back yard. And My Cowboy: “I don’t hear that machine runnin’ — git ta work!”

Last week, I quilted the 500th quilt on my longarm, since getting it in May of 2009.

I’m not quite sure how I feel about it, either. I sometimes think I’m slow. I saw one lady post on Facebook that she did 367 quilts in 2013 alone! That’s more than one a day. I can’t ...

Project Gap from Quilting, Piece by Piece

The first of the DnA quilts to be quilted is, of course, the last one  to be made: DnA4: In Memory of Edison.

The first of the DnA quilts to be quilted is, of course, the last one to be made: DnA4: In Memory of Edison.

I haven’t been feeling very creative (quilting-wise) lately.  I have been finishing stuff, just haven’t been able to think of a new project to start. It’s been like that since I came back from Pittsburgh.

I have been quilting, however. I finally finished the last of the Dragonfly Path quilt tops. It was like pulling teeth at the end. I don’t know what I was thinking of when I volunteered to make THREE ...

Are you ready for some Crafty Football Projects?! from 3 am Inspiration

badge2Today, I’m making a tray liner which can be used as a tabletopper. We have this cute tray/table that can be moved anywhere, which makes it idea for holding edible items for the big game! So let’s be honest here, this thing was purchased for a Quilt Market booth, because it’s light and portable and I convinced myself we could reuse it:)

Portable tray table–works for Quilt Market booths and football!

In my family, we are all pretty passionate about football–but about different teams! My team is the Green Bay Packers, which my son ...

Longarm Special! from Appalachian Quilts



Christmas is creeping up on us.  Don't be a naysayer--really, we only have TEN more Saturdays until Christmas!  Can you believe it?  I feel like I was just out working in my garden.  (Really, I was!)  Are you making quilts to give this Christmas?

We have a LOT of wide backs in stock.  Why wide backs?  First, there is no labor.  You just cut off your yardage and go.  Second, it is more economical.  Three yards of wide back (108" x 108") will do up to a queen-size quilt.  That is approximately $45-48, depending on the backing you pick ...

Pam Bono complete & Pumpkin Cornbread from caledonia quilter

The pattern name is Those Blooming Buds.  It seems that in all my awesome brilliance I forgot to snap a photo of the whole quilt after quilting. 

Here are a few shots of the blocks.
These Pam Bono quilts are so pretty, but they definitely have some weird shapes that need to be dealt with.
 Ooh, pretty back!

Today I have to pretend I'm on a diet.  I've been eating Chinese Food and cheesecake for two days, then because there is no milk, this morning I had to have my oatmeal with CREAM (which was decadently delicious, by ...

What’s Fall mean to you??! from 3 am Inspiration

So we’re over the it’s back to school time, things have settled in a bit there, thankfully! Minor adjustments are being made in study habits, focusing in on an Autistic Spectrum child and her way of learning. Love the differences in how each child learns, their individual processes and their expressions when the lightbulb goes off and they get it!!! So now we’re facing the Homecoming Dance, the Homecoming football game, the first new job for a teenager–a bakery, really!!?–I’m going to gain 10 lbs this fall! The ever changing events of Halloween added ...

A Friday Flannel Finish! from Mama Love Quilts

Allow me to introduce my Anna Maria Horner magic numbers flannel quilt!

Anna Maria Horner Flannel Quilt_Finished

She measures 88" by 96", making her large enough to cover my bed. She is flannel on the front and back, which means she weighs a ton and will be extra cozy for the colder months.

I quilted her with an allover paisley design. The flannel is so thick that the thread sinks into it, showing nothing but texture.

To get a better view of the quilting, check out the back.

I found the perfect fabric for the binding - a nice, small scale burgundy print.

It's so good to be enjoying longarm quilting again! from Field Trips in Fiber

I saved this little baby quilt specifically to be my first practice quilt on FloMo. I wanted to do some ruler work and some free motion on it to get used to the feel of the machine. I have to say that FloMo doesn't take much getting used to!

Yesterday I did all of the ruler work and used it to play with all of my rulers!

Oct 9 1

 

I stitched some small, medium and large triangles over the quilt and decided to do ruler work in each of them. I'll do free motion fills everywhere else. I love curved ...

Farewell and Hellloooooooo! from Field Trips in Fiber

Oct 8 Willie

Farewell to Willie. Yesterday he left for Virginia Longarm where he will find a new, wonderful home. Willie was named after my maternal Grandfather Willie Richard Dove. When my brother and I were in elementary school he got a job as a janitor in my school so he could see us every day. He was almost always near the cafeteria door when I wen to lunch and I remember occasionally seeing him peek through the window of the door to my classroom. 

Years later I was in a bar in New Jersey with a coworker after a particularly trying day ...

Beautiful Customer Quilt from All Things Quilty

I finally finished quilting Carolyn Ormond's sampler quilt.  What a stunner!


The edges are both angular and circular.  She should have fun binding it!  I decided to use white thread and do mostly background quilting to make the dark motifs pop. 


Some of the shapes were too large to be left unquilted, so I added some lines to enhance the motifs.



It was a pleasure to work on such a pretty quilt!

The mountains are starting to change color.  We had some pretty rides last weekend.



We continued to work on the landscaping.  I moved a lot of dirt ...
