Live each day to the max from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


A couple of months ago, I met up with a friend whom I hadn't seen in a long time. Our kids used to hang out together and we spent many hours sitting and chatting at dance class or gymnastics or birthday parties while the kids did their thing. I heard from her daughter that Teresa wasn't well. I had coffee with her in May and she told me that she has advanced lung cancer. I was stunned. This woman and no one in her family smoked. She would have had limited access to second-hand smoke. She was told ...

Black + Decker Classic Steam Iron from Becca's Crazy Projects

I often recommend products I use but don't always tell you about my experience. My recent iron purchase is something I want to share. I've never owned a fancy, quilting-specific iron. There are fancy irons that cost more than $100 and steam pressed that cost more than twice that. I don't need an iron that does tricks. Well, not many. I do have a Panasonic Cordless Iron (less than $100) because I had used a friend's and sometimes even I need a cordless iron. I also have the Steamfast Mini Travel Steam Iron for travel. 

I ...

Sassy Tip of the Week-105 from The Sassy Quilter

 photo sass_zps1d67b1d3.gif

Sassy tip #105:

To get nice flat quilt blocks…

Place a heavy book or two on your block after pressing. The weight of the book will keep the seams extra flat as it cools. I even set them on a whole stack that I have pressed!

Please don’t judge my nasty ironing board! A whole lot of pressing happened there:)

the Round Robin Edition 13 – unexpected things to use for quilting from Patchwork Posse

happy monday….

We get in that mindset that we must have the newest and best little gadget out there.

One that is perfect for the job- but in reality, sometimes you just don’t.  Save some pennies (only so you can use them on a new fat quarter) and think outside of the box.

That’s what this is all about.  Thinking a little differently at something that might be laying around right next to you or in the other room — or in you honey’s tool box.

You never know where you might find your next ‘best friend’ in ...

the Round Robin Edition 6 – Pressing and Ironing from Patchwork Posse

happy monday….

Today let’s chat about something that’s not super exciting, but needed when you quilt.

Ironing….. not on the top of my to-do list.

Pressing though. I can do that. Not only can I do it, there are a few products that are my favorite.

One of them is the iron itself. The other is the starch.

Do you have a favorite iron?

I’ve flipped back and forth with irons.
I’m pretty sure I’ve used them all.

Rowenta.
Cordless.
Oliso.
Long, mini iron.

You name it. It’s been in my hands.

Each of ...

Hell has frozen over! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Or so it feels like. It's a wee bit cool this morning and even the girls were quite happy to be back in the house after about 2 minutes outside! I'm guessing we won't be going to the dog park this morning.

Which is great - more time for sewing! It's the last day of the year and time to review that list of UFOs for 2017. I told you, I'm not throwing in the towel until midnight tonight!

I did NOT get any quilts quilted yesterday. I went to the gym for a class - I ...

5 Things to Know to Improve your Sewing Projects from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Sewing Friends, 

It's that time of year where we start thinking about the year that has past and what we have accomplished. Reflecting on the year that has past I have had many great accomplishments! One thing that always ends up on my New Year's Resolution list is to sew more and to become better at my craft because we all know,  "practice makes perfect"!   This year I focused on project completion because if you are a perfectionist like me most often times you end up with a million unfinished projects. No matter if you have been ...
