Signs of Spring from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

It's a sunny day here in Northeast Ohio so I had a wander around the yard and my favorite park looking for signs of spring.  
I had to push back some leaf litter to get the full view of these charming crocus -- love that yellow cup at the base of each flower!  I'll have to mark this clump and dig it up for separating later this spring -- spread that loveliness around a bit! 
The hellebore feel late but they are coming along and should be in full bloom in another week!
Love snowdrops and have been working for ...

More Isolette Plus Quilts from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

My loyal gang of quilters has been working since the first of the year on more of those isolette baby plus quilts I shared with you HERE in November.  At this point, most of the bundles that we collected together in this tub have been turned into quilts to be donated to the NICU at a Lexington, KY hospital.
We get together every couple weeks for an afternoon of stitching and in spite of the weather have managed to turn out a couple dozen quilts
It's interesting to listen to everyone as they lay out the pattern -- we run ...

Join Me at a Blow Off Black Friday Sew-In from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

Number three is finished!!
Our weather today is "home-confining", so I plan to cut out (and maybe stitch up) number four.

I'm organizing a "sew-in" on Friday afternoon, 11/23, from 1 to 4 p.m. to make more of these baby isolette Plus quilts to donate to the Baptist Health Hospital NICU in Lexington, KY.  Being the nearest large city to Appalachia region of Eastern Kentucky where I learned to be an enthusiastic mission worker, I have a heart for the people of that region and an Instagram conversation with a nurse has led me to work out ...

Up For a Little Challenge? from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

A month or so ago, an Instagram post of mine sparked a conversation with an NICU nurse, Jeri in Lexington, Kentucky.  When she shared that her unit cares for an average of 20 patients every month I was inspired to plot out three sizes of small quilts using the popular PLUS pattern.  Marsha and Mary Ann (charity quilting sidekicks) joined me in stitching each size up and we sent them off to Jeri for a test run to see which size would be perfect!
Now I invite you to join together in a campaign to stock up the staff at ...

Modern Plus Quilts Blog Hop from Needle and Foot

The release of Modern Plus Sign Quilts, written by Paige Alexander and Cheryl Brickey is being celebrated with a blog hop this week and next. I am so happy to take part in celebrating this book.  I have long been a fan of plus quilts and made one a while back.  I called it Positively Floating and you can see it here. Adding a book devoted to modern interpretations of plus quilts is the perfect thing for my collection of quilting books.

There are a couple of things I really appreciate about this book. One is the ease of most ...

Art Gallery Fabrics: Rayon Plus Quilt from Modern Handcraft

Hi friends! Today I am sharing a project using a material I never thought I would use in a quilt….RAYON!!! I was pretty confident prior to receiving the materials from Art Gallery, thinking I would keep it simple and it shouldn’t be that hard. For my project I chose this beautiful black and white striped rayon fabric covered with a […]
