Surprise “Congrats Quilt” for Jenny! from L&R Designs Quilting

Every year we travel to my brother’s house in Missouri to celebrate Thanksgiving with a big family reunion! This year I was able to deliver a surprise quilt for my niece Jenny who is graduating with a Business degree in December! Her daughter, Alexis (on left) gave me the idea earlier this year and if you know quilters, we are always looking for someone to gift a quilt to! Alexis received a quilt from me when she graduated high school, here’s a link to that quilt! The quilt pattern is Squiggles in Christa Watson’s book, Piece and ...

The serger from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I have NOTHING to do and NOWHERE to go today! OK - so there's technically nothing on the calendar although I have slated this as a CLEANUP day. There's a TO-DO list, but nothing is due today and no official places to go. I LOVE IT and the weather is supposed to be glorious. I'm pumped - I'm super excited. I've got loads that I want to do.

Another fun day at the Monday Sewing group. I've been spending the last couple of Mondays doing hand applique all day. I just couldn't take another day ...

Tummy Time Quilt for Nikola from L&R Designs Quilting

This summer I traveled to Czech Republic to deliver a baby quilt to my nephew’s new baby, Nikola Lily! Her older sister, Simona, received her baby quilt via my sister when she visited in 2017. This time, I was able to deliver it personally with my 2 sisters! In addition to meeting the latest member of our family, we had a grand time exploring Czech Republic!

I love it when I can stitch their name in the quilt and add my personal signature “Love – Aunt Linda”!

My sister found this “vintage” panel while organizing and I decided it’d ...

Dresden Plate with a Jelly Roll from Cowtown Quilts

Making a Dresden Plate quilt was on my Bucket List (the mental list of the many, many quilts I want to try before I die). Problem is that I really am trying to use fabric I already have. I’m bad about buying jelly rolls, because I figure I can easily make something without having to cut all those strips. But, they sit in my studio.

So, for this quilt, I decided to use one of my Riley Blake jelly rolls. I don’t know if you can see or not, but there are 20 points on these Dresden Plates ...

Scrap Happy from Hills Creek Quilter

A couple of posts ago, I wrote about cutting my scrap fabrics into usable pieces like strips and squares. I cut up enough of them (100 different fabrics) to make this quick and easy scrap quilt. There are 99 blocks on the front and one on the back that became the label.

The pattern is "Boxed Squares" from maryquilts.com. Click here for the free pattern. Mary's site is filled with lots of free patterns.

I don't have much yardage left in my stash (or what I do have didn't ...

Lots of Progress! (Photo Heavy) from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

I'm made a lot of progress over the past week.  About a month or so ago I made a baby quilt as a gift.  I posted a pic of it on my blog and facebook.  My SIL's mother wanted me to make 2 of them for her as gifts for twins of her niece.  They will be 2 yrs old this summer.  I added a border on these to make them a little bigger so they could use them for several years.  
 They ended up being 52" square.
 I quilted a simple stipple on them.
 I did the ...

A Finished "Squirrel"! from Indigo Threads

This post has been a long time coming.  I've actually had this quilt finished since August of last year so it could be in the guild quilt show, but I didn't have time to do a post nor did I have decent photos of the quilt.  Finally the stars have aligned!  I've finally managed to get some decent photos and I have time to post!

"Falling Crumbs"
80 x 95 inches
hanging at the quilt show

First, an explanation for my post title.  You'll see a Squirrel! logo on my left side bar.  Quiltdivajulie at Me ...

Forest Galorest from Cowtown Quilts

I loved this pattern from Java House Quilts the first time I saw it.  If you love it as well, you can purchase it yourself here.  I started working on this quilt back in September.  The applique would be needle-turned, meaning by hand.  The edges would be turned under and stitched down by hand vs fusing down a raw edge applique onto the background and machine finishing the edges (a tedious, but much quicker method).  I figured it would take me about 2 years to finish; a nice project for me to work on in the evenings before bedtime.  My ...
