Together Again February from Humble Quilts





 I have my top section pieced
And have my lower 4 blocks ready for applique. I had to piece a couple of them too. 

I'm going to start by adding the angel on the top section, then start pulling fabric for one of the blocks. I am really considering buttonhole stitch in black! (by machine) 

Have you gotten any fabric pulled yet?
PS, When I pulled out the angel pattern I was surprised at how HUGE it was! It doesn't look that large on the quilt.

There has been some talk about the difficulty of finding the book ...

Stoke the Fire! from Appalachian Quilts

The cold weather finds me sitting in front of the woodburner all nestled up and cozy.  A lot of people start to feel depression this time of year.  The days are shorter.  The nights are longer.  We don't venture outside as much and doctors attribute the "winter blues" to a lack of Vitamin D and lack of sunlight.

Yesterday, we had a bit of warmer weather.  After spending all day Saturday in the kitchen working on this, that and the other....I needed some time outside.  I have garlic that is late being planted, so I violated the rule ...

Missouri Star Shop Feature: Primitive & Wool from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

While sewing up clothes for their children and fulfilling the duty of “homemaker,” women started to enhance their making skills with decorative stitching and design, steering away from trends in Europe and creating the first American style.

Today, folk artists use modern elements to create an antiquated look. At Missouri Star Quilt Co., we have a ...
