Gratitude Quilt from Ellyn's Place

I finished my fourth word-of-the-year quilt! Gratitude was my word in 2012. I chose a pumpkin to represent my word because I always think of the harvest when I think of gratitude. Also, I realized that this is ABSOLUTELY the longest word I can choose or I will have to make my paper pieced letters even smaller (and that, my friends, is NOT happening!)

For the pumpkin, I used this tutorial that I found via Pinterest (don't you just love Pinterest?) posted on the Fort Worth Studio Blog (which I love!) The finished quilt is 18x20, just like the ...

weekly phone screenshots from edeenut

I've got a thing with screenshots. They are up there with the best inventions pretty much.
While scrolling through Instagram, some web page, or even Zillow on my phone, I come across a lot of really cool stuff. Some of the stuff I want to save and remember. But Pinterest is not really somewhere I want to save everything. Because, lets be honest, things get lost on Pinterest. Plus I don't know how to pin things from my phone!
Here's the post where I share a little peak into my screenshots.
What are you saving these days ...

Friday Finds from Stitchin' Therapy


Just a couple of things I spotted to share.  This one is a great reference to a big variety of sources.  It comes from Quilt Inspiration and is full of free patterns. 

Bags, tote, purses, laptop is all linked here.  There should be a pattern for everyone.  I actually have made a couple of these and thought this was a wonderful resource to pin and keep.

A little bit of organizing help.   Amy at Amy's Creative Side posted a printable calendar designed to help keep our quilting/blogging activities straight.  I thought this was a great idea ...

FMQ - Tips From a Beginner, For Beginners from Scraps of My Life

Hello and welcome back!

Recently I've been sharing my forays into free motion quilting (FMQ) and received a lot of feedback - thank you!  Some of that feedback has been questions from other beginner FMQs asking about how I got started and what resources I used to begin.  I'm happy to share, so here are my tips.

  1. Sewing Machine - In order to FMQ, there are a few things you need to check with your machine before you begin.  You will need a FMQ foot (example photo) - this is also traditionally known as a darning foot, so if you have ...

Pinterest Baking Day from Tea Rose Home

Do you collect lots and lots of recipes on your pinterest board? I do. Do you actually go back and make them?... My answer to that is not really.
I woke up one morning and really wanted to try out some of the recipes from my pinterest board. I decided to bake a couple of my newest pins.

This key lime pie recipe is by Mom on Time Out it was super easy to make and delicious. Personally I could do with less sweetness, but everyone who had this loved it.

My wonderful neighbor gave us the zucchini from their ...

Flying Geese Blocks from Pinevalley Quilts

Flying Geese Blocks / Pine Valley Quilts

Flying Geese Blocks on the quilt I am making are only 2 inches wide x 1 inch in height. The cutest flying geese I have ever made.

I am using a great technique, they are such a doddle to make even at this size.

Flying Geese Blocks / Pine Valley Quilts

This is not a new technique for making flying geese blocks, but it is the first time I have used it. Here’s the technique:

For (2) Flying Geese blocks finished size 1 x 2 inches cut as follows:

1 large square 3 1/4 inches

3 small squares 1 7/8 inches ( I used different ...

Pinterest as a Blog Organization Tool from Red Delicious Life

With the launch of the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers blog hop, I wanted to pass along what might be an unlikely web platform that has proved to be invaluable to me throughout my blogging journey --

For many it can be addictive, and it's a great resource for inspiration that allows you to search for specific terms. I admit it's my go-to source for new recipes, but for me it's a great way to keep me organized when I find helpful information on anything related to quilting and blogging.

Here's how I use Pinterest: I create very ...

We are halfway there! from Monkey's on the Porch

Well, a little over halfway there.  Aren’t you excited?  I am.  I am terribly excited that I’ve made it this far.  Not only because it gives me a chance to write daily, but also because I’ve been using this momentum in my other Revolutions.  I’ve been fairly successful in getting back on the elliptical and we’re working on getting the house reorganized.  So, all in all, this has been a very good challenge for me.

I am sorry to report that there were no Pokemon pillowcases made this afternoon, although I did manage to get ...

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 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 ...
