Four for Four from From the Strawberry Patch...

For the past three days we've had a little helper here, things are sadly quiet this morning. Over the last few months Mr. Goodneedle and I have tried to have each of the grandchildren for a weekend, by themselves, as schedules allowed. We didn't get Lucy Ann for a weekend but did manage the first three days of her spring break from school this week. We've now four for four, she was the

Building vs Rehab from Terificreations's Weblog

This post is a reflection, focusing on recent drive time thinking of the difference between building new vs rehabbing established based on my Word of the Year, Build. It’s very quilterly, and rather nostalgic. Thirty years ago now, oh it feels so long ago, I was in the middle of a volunteer service year at… Continue reading Building vs Rehab

I Found the Perfect Yellows and other lines from Terificreations's Weblog

Cottage Joy by Shannon Christensen Windham Fabrics. As I walked into the Windham booth at Quilt Market the bright, sunshine yellow caught my eye. This line has the PERFECT yellows. Warm and welcoming without being shocking and unsettling. These are the yellows to add to the stash. Shannon brought butter cups, mason jars, bees and… Continue reading I Found the Perfect Yellows and other lines

NJ Quilt Fest and Memory Lane from Lisa H Calle's Blog

Thank you Manusco! I’m sure they weren’t aware that selecting Edison, New Jersey as the new venue for the NJ Quilt fest, would bestow upon me a priceless gift.   In addition, I am quite certain they had no idea that they would have my professional and personal lives joining paths for the weekend.

 

So, believe it or not I actually grew up in the town of Plainfield which is right next to Edison, in fact my high school was in Edison.  Good Ole “Evergreen School” (my elementary school) I remember it felt overwhelming walking the halls as a ...

A Star, I Think - Part 3 from Ravelly1



I had the front pocket area of each shirt left over & thought, 'why not make a pillow from the mix.' As you can see, I kept the pockets, thinking, they would be perfect to place little momentos inside. 
What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear from you.

Star, I'm Thinking - Part 2 from Ravelly1

I've added a row at the top and bottom of the body of the quilt to lend some length and that's that!!!

Now to get to work on the backing which sometimes takes longer to do than the top.....sigh
I'm using a couple of the t-shirts provided and the rest of the HSTs.

Finally done with the backing. Yeah!!! 
Now I'll need to quilt everything and present it to her.........I'm going to buckle down and get this done. You've heard it here!!

This is my own design that I sketched out a ...

MidAtlantic Memories from From the Strawberry Patch...

MAQF  Williamsburg, VA  2000 I've been going up to MidAtlantic Quilt Festival for a long time, somewhere in the vicinity of twenty years; always with friends and always making memories. Back when I started going up it was held in Williamsburg, VA; it moved to Hampton in 2005. Back in those earlier days I traveled with these two: Quiltkeemosabe in the center and Maredda, on the right. We met in

HAPPY 2018 from A Quilter and The Chief

Wishing all our friends and family 
a very happy new year! 
May 2018 bring you many blessings!!


Happy New Year from the Pavones!

We made so many memories on our travels in 2017.
We are truly blessed and fortunate to be able to travel.

Mid-January took us to Nashville where we met great friends and visited the Jack Daniels Distillery, in nearby Lynchburg, as well as a 'behind the scenes' tour of the Jack Daniels Fire Brigade; met friends in Las Vegas; a Caribbean Cruise, in February, with Kathy and Stan (my sis and BiL); and a few RV trips ...

Behold! My First Finished Quilt Top of 2018: "Paint Me A Story" from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Some wise Internet sage proposed that how we spend our New Year's Day would characterize how we would spend our time and what we would accomplish throughout the entire year.  Well, the only thing I accomplished on New Year's Day was to bake a new scone recipe that no one liked.  Baking Fail!  I also slipped and fell down the stairs while carrying a laundry basket down on New Year's Day, and that's not a very promising augur for the new year either.  But yesterday I finally, FINALLY finished a quilt top that I started working ...

Saying Good-bye from From the Strawberry Patch...

Saying good-bye is never easy. On Sunday we did a final cleaning of my in-law's home. The closing was earlier today, it now belongs to a new, young family. It's not hard to clean out an empty house; unencumbered by furnishings it's easy to make those final passes with the vacuum cleaner and dust cloths; that's the easy part, the head part-- but, when it's the home your children grew up in,

With A Little Help From My Friends! from From the Strawberry Patch...

I recently celebrated a birthday; in grand style-- with a little help from my friends! My high school friends, to be more accurate. This year the day just happened to fall on the same day as our high school reunion! Mr. Goodneedle and I were in the same class so this event was great fun for both of us; we're still talking about what a terrific time we had visiting and catching up with

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE PAVONES from A Quilter and The Chief

Highlights of 2016


Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

I had the best of intentions for writing blogs, but alas, our busy life got in the way and I didn't make the time to write any! So, here are the Highlights of 2016. It was another busy year filled with family, friends and fun, traveling, RVing, quilting teaching, and much joy. 

We traveled throughout the year. In January our traveling included a trip to a very stormy New Jersey,  and a Caribbean cruise with friends. In July, we flew to Seattle & took a ...

The Pearl Anniversary from Coloradolady

Today my husband and I celebrate the Pearl Anniversary, or thirty years together. Someone said to me once that if they made it to thirty years with their
spouse it would be an accomplishment. I guess in some ways it is, but for me, it is more about sticking to a promise to tough it out in good times and bad.


Leading up to this day for the past week, I have thought about advice I'd give a couple just starting out. There are so many important things I could tell a young couple about all the good things ...

Quilting is more than sewing... from Sew Fun to Quilt

Feb 10, 2016

Quilting is more than sewing because we are not only stitching pieces of fabric, but we stitch parts of our lives, the memories, together for years to come.

I had made a quilt for my sister's family to celebrate their two adorable cats that were not pets, but family members, years ago. I was able to enter the quilt and win in addition to entering it into the Blogger's Quilt Festival May 2010 .

See I am a cat person that chose a life of travel and didn't have one myself. So I had a ...
