HAPPY HALLOWEEN from The Quilting Queen Blog

I hope you have enjoyed the

 blog hop.  There certainly was plenty of inspiration and ghouly projects.

The next thing I have for you is no trick and maybe not a treat either.

The King has a new assignment with the 3M Company.  He has accepted the position of HR Manager for the DeKalb, Illinois site.  I have very mixed emotions about the new appointment; mostly because I'm no fan of COLD weather.  But as my daughter pointed out, "what in the world are you making all those quilts for?"  I guess I do have a few to keep ...

A FEW MORE MARKET PICURES from The Quilting Queen Blog

These are the last of the pictures of quilts from Quilt Market.  I still have a few pictures from the Quilt Display that we are allowed to preview before Quilt Festival starts.

I had a great time and saw some great fabrics, quilts, projects, tools, patterns, you name it if it's quilt related.  However I'm back home and hit the ground running!  I have customer quilts to do!

My granddaughters would love this "Frozen" Quilt and accessories.


The little table and chairs are just too cute!


Of course a beautiful Lone Star with applique.


A stunning Nee York ...

Update from Scraps of Life

Thought I should post an update about my dear friend.

On Monday they brought her out of the Drug induced coma. The CT scan showed that the pressures in her brain had gone down & Dr's felt that she could safely become "awake" but if the pain was too intense for her the would put her back "asleep", which they did and then tried again later and it was successful.
She was also able to have the breathing tube removed as she was then able to breathe on her own. 

I visited with her Monday night and fed her orange ...

BLACK CAT CROSSING BLOG HOP from The Quilting Queen Blog

Its finally here, my day for the Black Cat Crossing Blog Hop.  This blog hop is marks the one year anniversary for me with Sew We Quilt Blog Hops.  It all started with a referral from Vickie at More Stars in Comanche.  I love these blog hops and look forward to many more in the future.

Now to get down to the wicked matter at hand.  Maywood Studio has created a fabulous line of fabric that we're using in our projects.  It's called Black Cat Crossing.  And not too many things scream Halloween more than black cats.  Wicked ...

Design Wall Monday from Field Trips in Fiber

My cold seems to be finally lifting today. I still have some laryngitis but that's normal for me. When I lose my voice it's sometimes for weeks. The best part is that my asthma is much better. I'm glad we can't pass body viruses over the web because I'd hate for anyone else to get this cold. It's a brutal one.

But a cold isn't going to keep a quilter down! I had a darned productive weekend. Today I'll share the longarm-related activities. I'm actually going to see if I can ...

TO MARKET, TO MARKET from The Quilting Queen Blog

I'm OFF!  .... to International Quilt Market in Houston, Texas that is.  I'm going with my friends Susan, Carla, and Kathleen from Cotton Boll Quilting.  (Speaking of Cotton Boll Quilting, go on over to their website and order up a few yards of your favorite quilt fabrics.  If you're looking for Batiks, she's got a few.  I'm not a huge Batik fan but I can assure you I found plenty of other fabrics that made my way into my suitcase.)  We're staying at Susan's sisters beautiful home in League City.  I thought I'd ...

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



Yep that's me, Just call me the Grim Ripper.  Because that's what I've been doing for the last 3 1/2 hours.  Monday has been one heck of a day!

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 ...
