Away for the Weekend from Romany Quilting

We spent last weekend away with our caravan club friends, just a small group this time with four caravans and four motorhomes staying at the Coach House Museum.   A visit to the museum while staying here is always a must.  Inside the museum was a treasure trove of all thing to do with farming and agriculture.  A grand selection of carriages, gigs, carts, plows, all sorts of horse drawn implements.  Even a few early cars which would have been the envy of all in the area at the time.   Shearing, milking, and blacksmith tools, and a great array of John ...

VETERANS DAY from Quilting My Way

 Today is Veterans Day! I spent the day at the Veterans Memorial Museum. We set up a table and "nominated" about 20 more Veterans for our QOV quilts. 

On a day like today, I wish my father was here. He would have joined me today and helped out. I feel close to him when I can honor veterans. My best friend and father!

One of the people we signed up was a WAV - Navy woman Veteran. She got so emotional that we would honor her with a quilt. She joined about the time I would have, if I would have ...

I'm Still Here lol from Quilting My Way

 Sorry. Saturday I had nothing to show. Sunday (yesterday) was cleaning the house. We were getting ready to have a clean house to come home to. Can you believe I actually put my stuff away?! No worries,  I will pull them out when I get back. 

Bowling was last night. What an awful night of bowling! We did get 2 games. My awful games were 138, 158, and 135. So much for a high average. I beat Patrick on the first one, then he kicked my butt.

Right after we headed down to Portland to send the night at the ...

Off on a Trip from Romany Quilting

Finally we are off on a caravan trip - the weekend was spent with our caravan club buddies, not too far away at Betts Farm.  Our previous caravan club rally had been cancelled due to Covid lockdown, as had our planned 3 week trip north.  So there was plenty of news to catch up with our caravan buddies.  The night ended with a lovely sunset, always so nice to see the gorgeous colours in the sky.


Lovely sunset

The weekend rally seemed to be all about eating and a little drinking.  Glenys was celebrating her birthday on Saturday so she rushed ...

Have We Forgotten to NEVER FORGET? from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Kara and I (Teri) are having an amazing time at Baltimore on the Prairie—teaching, catching up with old friends, and meeting new ones. We will fill you in on our event next week. 

This week, as we near the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, I would like to share with you a current exhibit at the National Quilt Museum—NEVER FORGET: Quilts from the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. My husband and I stopped to visit the museum on our road trip to Nebraska, and we found this particular exhibit both beautiful and gut-wrenching. I confess that it kept ...

Working On A Top Again from Quilting My Way

 This morning Patrick was off to his golf tournament. I was going to enjoy the day to myself. I had a hard time trying to decide if I wanted to work on my beading or go downstairs. I know I need to get more tops done, so I headed downstairs. 

I was tired of seeing this on the wall. I decided to go down and get to work on it. 

Of course there are those days when things go wrong. At least this was the only thing that went wrong so far! I sewed the two square together twice. So ...

Cutting and a Camping Trip Catch Up from Romany Quilting

So what have I been doing lately?  Cutting some strips to work on my RSC Cobblestone blocks.   Blue is the nominated colour this month so I dug into my bag of batiks to see what I could find.   I do my cutting out on top of the chest freezer, which is just the right height for this job.  But like most jobs these days I have to pace myself so that I don’t affect the muscles on my back.  Just a little at a time and I get there.


Cutting strips for cobblestone blocks

Now for a bit of ...

Milkweed at the Texas Quilt Museum from Art and Quilting in Camden

Frank Klein has emerged as a major collector of contemporary art quilts, and I’m delighted to say he has several of my quilts. There is an exhibit on now at the Texas Quilt Museum that includes my Milkweed. Even better, I love that one of my friend Deborah Boschert’s quilts is also in the exhibit, and we “bookend” one of the images. Here is a video for those who, like me, won’t have the pleasure of visiting in person.

It was a delight to learn of this exhibit, that I and so many wonderful artists I know ...

First Operation Done from Quilting My Way

This morning we were out the door by 4:15 am. We all piled into the van and headed to UW Cancer Care Alliance. Patrick arrived at the hospital for his check in. We couldn't go in. Family and friends are not allowed due to Corona Virus. We all hugged him and wished him well. I walked him to the door and then turned back to the van. 

Katt, Susan and I headed to breakfast. The plan was to stay in the area to make sure he was okay during and after surgery. We headed to the closest I-Hop ...

My Visit(s) To The National Quilt Museum from From the Strawberry Patch...

I borrowed the photo (left) from the Internet. When I visited the museum on January 30 it was raining so hard in Paducah that I was NOT posing for a snapshot out front! These photos, below, are from the first time I visited here in 1993. Can you spot the  biggest difference between the two? The museum has undergone a name change! Somehow I missed this occurrence when it happened and it became my

Cats on Tour from Romany Quilting

We are away on another trip (lucky us), the weather was good and the car and caravan just hummed along.  We had our  favourite radio station belting out all the songs from the 50s, 60s and 70s “songs that you know and love”, as the adverts say, rather like spending time with good friends, as we hummed along.  Gemma came too, of course, and she is quite good on car rides, she usually spends her time beside me, leaning on the consul with her head facing backwards as we drive along.  Rather like an ostrich with her head in the ...

QOV Presentation Day - AND VETERANS DAY from Quilting My Way

 This morning I needed to get moving. The Veterans Memorial Museum was having a Parade at the museum. So, I needed to get to the museum before the traffic arrived. - OR so I thought!

Arrived early - about 10:30 am and enjoyed the time with my group. We were wearing masks today because of all the traffic. We ended up using the room upstairs which helped keep us away from the visitors to the museum. 

We were able to give this quilt out to Robert Moore. He looks so young! And yet he's about 45 years old. I thought ...

Such a busy weekend, quilts and all from Romany Quilting

We have been away up in Takapau in the Hawkes Bay celebrating our Caravan Club’s 600th Rally.  Robin and I were Rally Captains for this rally, so were in charge of organising the activities.  And of course we had to order a 600th Rally Cake to share with all the members.


Our first outing of the weekend was at the grand old Oruawharo Homestead on Friday morning when  for High Tea.  This was served in the beautiful Vincent’s Church, moved from Takapau township in 2012.  Used as a wedding venue, birthdays, anniversaries  and High Teas, this church has ...

Volunteering At The Museum from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and out the door. I stopped at Starbucks to get some tea and some yogurt with fruit. Then it was off to the museum.

I arrived to find Greg there. I was expecting Sam, but she didn't make it. I had my mask with me. I ware it half the time. When no one was there, I took it off. I also worked on my embroidery.

I got a few more stitches in on the bird. I need to work on the next color. I kept working it. I wanted to get more color ...

Museum of Things Found With Metal Detectors from Michelle's Romantic Tangle

My youngest son got a metal detector for Christmas. Luckily, the Museum of Things Found With Metal Detectors isn't very far from home. Honestly, I'm not sure it would be worth a lengthy drive unless you're also planning to check out the covered bridges in the area or the Linn County Historical Museum, which is totally worth a road trip. But to get a kid excited about his new metal detector, it was fun to visit. 

The museum is at White's Electronics and they have a huge display of the metal detectors and geiger counters ...

Hometown Girl from Stash Overflow

The Maryland Historical Society has been running a year-long exhibit of Mimi Dietrich’s quilts. It is coming to an end mid-March. If you are in the area, I highly recommend going. Three antique Baltimore Album quilts are also included in the exhibit.

Mimi has led over 50 tours of the exhibit so far. Contact the museum to arrange a tour with Mimi for your group. For those of you who can’t make it to the museum to see the quilts in person, she is doing a virtual tour on her blog. Start with this post and read forward ...

Een museumbezoekje.... het Nederlandsopenlucht Museum from Quilts Van Kippetje en Meer

Museums bezoeken vind ik leuk maar het komt er niet zo vaak van,

zo gaat het nou eenmaal vaak. maar deze maand kwam het er toch van en ging ik naar Arnhem. Via een uitnodiging van de Bank giroloterij. Soms moet je even een zetje hebben niet waar? Ik was er ooit eens eerder geweest maar toen zat ik nog op de lagere school dus dat was wel heel lang geleden.

Het was geen mooi weer, nat en koud maar gelukkig was er binnen ook genoeg te doen. Zo is er o.a. een grote tentoonstelling voor de geschiedenis canon ...
