Another one finished... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 Another one quilted!!!  3 down and 34 more to go!!!  I loaded and quilted this one yesterday afternoon!  This is the Churn Dash that I finished up a few days ago.  It is not a huge quilt but still a nice size measuring 70x82.  
 I did a dense stipple on it.  I'll be honest, I'm so tired of stippling!  Nothing at all wrong with it, I'm just tired of doing it.  LOL!  I did it on this one because I just wanted it done and stippling is easy.  LOL!
 I really need to work on bindings this ...

Purple Baby Heart Quilt - First 2018 Quilt Finish from Studio Dragonfly Quilts


This sweet quilt was not even on my list of quilty goals for the year, yet here it is. Two of my coworkers are expecting babies this Spring. One of them is having an early baby shower since a super big work deadline is approaching for her team and time for baby showers will become scarce. I don't know her that well so I asked some of her closer work buddies what she might like. Without skipping a beat, I learned that "she really likes purple". That is all I needed to know.


My purple stash is not large ...

Five? from From the Strawberry Patch...

Five? Really?? The passage of time seems to be measured in days rather than years to this Nana. How could time be passing so quickly? Yes, our youngest granddaughter is five years old. January 2013 We had a fun day shopping for clothes and accessories for her newest doll, Kit, on Monday. Our trips together to the American Girl store have become a birthday tradition. My dad calls it

3 Memory Cross Quilts and 9 Memory Pillows... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 This morning I thought I would show you a few quilts that I pieced and quilted for a lady before Christmas. 
 Her husband had passed away and she asked me to make 3 of these Cross Memory Quilts from his shirts for her and their 2 sons for Christmas. 
 Here is a pic of the 2nd one.  Somehow I didn't get a pic of the 3rd one but it looks just like these two. 
 Here is a photo of the back of them.  All 3 of them were quilted with this same design.  The panto is called, Spindle.  I ...

Totally Unexpected... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 This was totally unexpected!  LOL!  I quilted one of MY OWN quilt tops today!  :) 
 I can't tell you how long it has been since I have quilted one of my own.  It felt great!
 This pattern is called, Road to Jericho.  It is a nice size lap quilt measuring 62x76.  Looking back on my blog I pieced it September 2012.  I was digging around today and found it with the backing so I loaded it on the longarm. 
 I did a fairly dense stipple on it.  I remember piecing this quilt and I was trying to clean out some ...

Another Year of Journal Quilts from Creating Chaos

I have again signed up for making a monthly Journal Quilt with Contemporary Quilters.  This year it has to be  7" x 9" landscape which I think is a lovely size to work with - not too big and not too small.

I have decided my quilts are going to be based on a log cabin block, hoping to push the boundaries a bit which I know for me is going to be a challenge as I love the formality of a traditional log cabin!  I'm also going to use my own dyed fabric which I will overprint using my ...

Sorting from Terificreations's Weblog

This whole impractical color wheel is causing me to change the way thread gets stored: rather than by fiber, it’s by color. Whaaaaa? Yeah. Years ago I spent an afternoon stitching with Elizabeth Rosenberg in her quilt studio. She sorted her thread by color rather than fiber, it befuddled me a bit, because isn’t fiber… Continue reading Sorting
