Thrifty Threads? from Pine Mountain Quilt Studio

There is a fiber artist in the UK that stitches up wonderful stuff: you can see her things on Pinterest if you search for Thrift and Thread.  This was inspired by her work.
I've always loved Folk Art of any kind and have a large book collection on the subject PLUS I used to teach at Calico Station where Cheri Safiote Payne was the owner...check out her blog as well.
It's a scrap of old worn quilt with simply cut and embroidered fabric flowers.  Love it.

...aftermath.. and a pin cushion or three... from Seriously...I think it needs stitches

Belated Happy New Year!! I feel like I've been MIA for forever!!  It's been a crazy few months. (I used the gelatin recipe found here) My MIL's celebration of life party finally took place a couple of weekends ago.  It was beautiful and just as she wanted it. The only hiccup was that my FIL was in the HOSPITAL with a bleeding ulcer.  He is fine now.. I think it was just all of the stress

Jelly Rolls - meine Leidenschaft from Quiltmanufaktur



Ich bin besessen von den Möglichkeiten, die man mit diesen vorgeschnittenen Streifen in Form von Jelly Rolls hat. Und es ist immer eine Wonne, wenn neue Stoffe ins Geschäft eintrudeln und ich neue Jelly Rolls schneiden kann. Am liebsten würde ich dann immer gleich loslegen und aus den Streifen was neues Gestalten, aber die Zeit...... Auf dem Bild seht ihr einen gaaaanz alten Quilt, den ich mal als Anfängerkurs angeboten habe und den ich hege und pflege :-) So einfach und trotzdem so schön (finde ich...)!


Mein Sortiment umfasst zur Zeit etwa 600 Stoffe (darunter auch sehr viel Solids von Kona ...

Let’s put pom poms on stuff, okay? from The Village Haberdashery

I made a new pinboard! We love pom pom trim, or bobble trim, if you want to call it that, and I got a little sucked into Pinterest discovering creative ways to add poms to your projects. So let’s get inspired and put pom poms on stuff, okay?

Pom pom love pinboard

Infant/Toddler easy 20 minute ties from Amalie's Armfuls

In my personal opinion, if you want a boy to wear a tie to church later on, you have to start when they are born.  That way, even though they are not comfortable, they are simply used to it.  My second personal opinion...is I don't really care for bow ties.  Yes, they are cute on some boys, but they are just wrong on adults and therefore I personally don't want to start a trend that he might like later on.  Like it said, personal opinion.

As I was getting my son dressed for church yesterday morning I ...

New scrap quilt thanks to Pinterest from The Quilted Librarian



I've started a new scrap quilt thanks to Pinterest.  It's creator, Deanna of the Wedding Dress Blue blog, named it the "Film at Five" quilt and it is an extremely serviceable design for all sorts of scrap arrangements.  I started looking for a likely candidate design when my scrap box had to be declared totally out of control.

Once I had the design, I dumped the scrap box and began cutting two-and-a-half inch squares.
Having a two-and-a-half inch ruler is a huge help so you can quickly see if you can use the scrap in question.
Slipping is ...
