William’s Honor: A Quilt Pattern Dedicated to Veterans from Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber

Some would say that a quilt achieves its highest purpose in life when it is gifted to another. When a quilt is created and awarded to a service member or veteran, it says, “Someone cares. Thank you for your service.” The Quilts of Valor Foundation has made it their mission to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor (QOV). We’ve created a FREE quilt pattern, William’s Honor, that you can use to make one of these patriotic quilts.

Our quilt is shown here in Branded by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics ...

Sew Alongs from Nestlings By Robin

It may be hard to believe but 
I have NEVER done a sew 
along in all my 20 years of quilting!
Now that I have a little
extra time at home, Why Not?!

I have participated in guild 
lottery blocks and 
guild challenges but 
never worked with a group 
on the same project before.  
It is SEW FUN!!

A design is chosen, we

Easy Charm Squares Quilt Finish from Dizzy Quilts

At the start of 2020, one of my goals for the year was to re-organize my sewing room. If you've been following my blog for a bit, you'll know that I started garment sewing and I now feel like I need to get better organized - fabric is all over the place in my sewing room and I need to find a storage solution for all the Big 4 and the PDF patterns I've acquired.

I was going through my stash of precuts and I realized I still have A LOT of charm square packs - some of which ...

Jelly Lanterns - A Quilt Finish from Dizzy Quilts

The fabrics that went into making this quilt had probably been in my stash for 6 or 7 years. I'm pretty sure I got the Jelly Roll as part of the "Jelly Roll Club" subscription from Fat Quarter Shop back in 2013! Which would explain why it had been in my stash for so long - not exactly my style. But as I've said before, I'm determined to use up what I have - fabrics and patterns so when looking for a quick and easy quilt to make over the holidays, I decided to finally use my Field Notes ...

Falling Leaves from Random Thoughts... do or "di"

Who doesn't love Fall? And a fall quilt is even better; so for my friend, Monika's birthday, I made her a Falling Leaves quilt. The pattern is by Vanessa Christensen. It's actually a kit. Her ombre fabrics are yummy and make these leaves pop on the background of the Robert Kaufman yarn dyed charcoal fabric. 


This was the first quilt that I used a stencil to mark some registration lines before I quilted it. Why have I never done this before? Although my quilting is far from perfect, the stencil did help me to quilt it more ...

Yippie ~ It’s here! from Thistledown & Co.

Woo - Hoo !
Spring has arrived and I’m coming out of hibernation.
You’d think that I would have had plenty of time to blog throughout the winter but it just didn’t happen. I guess I’ve been busier than I thought keeping my parents healthy and entertained through the dreary winter months. When it comes down to it, that of course, is most important and a more precious use of my time.
After 3 years of residing back here in Wisconsin, and learning to embrace winter, I’m happy to see winter losing its grip. Spring is here ...

Summer of Kate Spain Quilts from Stella Bella Quilts

The bright, clear, cheerful colors of Kate Spain's fabric lines are calling to me this summer.  I finished up my second Kate Spain quilt top of the summer; the line is Sunnyside. The pattern is from Moda Bake Shop and is called "Basic Math Quilt."  The quilt uses one layer cake and is fun and easy to make.

I had the blocks made for awhile and then "rediscovered" them cleaning up a pile in my sewing room.  
This will be another great lap quilt for the couch for the summer to go along with my Daydreams quilt (see next ...
