Design Wall Monday - June 29, 2020 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Hello quilters!  Happy 4th of the July this week.  I love flag quilts and have many.  Here’s a link to how I made a replica of an 1862 crib flag quilt.  (Here).  It is in the room with me right now, ready for the holiday weekend coming up: The zigzag blue plaid quilt is back in Grand Rapids on the design wall.  I put it there and put up more potential columns of dark/light plaids.  I

Quilts with stars and over 50 one-block quilt patterns from Pieced Brain

Quilts with stars and over 50 one-block quilt patterns

I love quilts with stars, whether they are pieced, paper pieced, or appliqued. I have made them entirely with stars, such as this Christmas quilt, or mixed with alternating blocks. Here is my latest star quilt block, which is going into a sampler quilt.

Two of my friends and I are making star quilt blocks which will be later turned into a quilt. We were supposed to meet every month and exchange blocks, but life is getting in the way. I did make another block, though, and I think it came out so cool!

I was looking for 12-inch star ...

Quilted Joy’s Longarm Renters are Ready for the Fourth from Quilted Joy

Patriotic quilts have been a part of our common history since the country began. And there is no slowing down now. With the fourth of July just around the corner, it is not a bad time to plan a quilt for it. The Star-Spangled Banner is only one of the twenty-nine flags in the world that is made of red, white, and blue. Even more of them have stars. But when you are in the USA, anything that has red, white, and blue automatically feels patriotic regardless of the shape it is in. These longarm machine renters are ready for ...

Hangin' with Harvey from From the Strawberry Patch...

There's a sameness to every day right now. Although I do try to keep to a normal (for me) schedule during these days-on-end of staying at home and quarantining- (getting up at 6, dressing for the day, morning walks, regular mealtimes, cleaning house on Fridays, ironing on Saturday mornings...) I dispensed with decorating the house for Easter this year. I can't remember ever NOT doing that

Design Wall Monday - November 11, 2019 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

November 11th:  Veterans Day - a day to honor the soldiers who have served our country in war and peace.   I so appreciate those who have served in the military, and reflect on the vanishing number of World War II vets still alive.  As I age, I have a greater appreciation of the preciousness of life, its beauty, its fragility, and the importance of our veterans and their service to the United
