Beating the Monday blues... from Fabric of My Life


Hey there everyone,

how was your weekend?
Hope you got some creative fun tucked in it? :)

I did a bit. It was a rainy one in Buffalo, NY and very often for me, summer rain = sewing time! There is something so appealing to me to sew while its raining outside and windows are open...maybe even a thunder or two... :) Am I just a bit nuts or do you have similar preferences?
Well, Sunday started with a great intention to take both dogs (our big boy Marley and grand puppy Oliver) for a nice morning walk along Ellicott Creek and ...

Ole Ole from Pinkadot Quilts


Saturday I took a class and made this small quilt. While I love the fabrics, my choices do not have enough contrast, something I always struggle with and always AFTER the quilt is done.....


This was the teacher's sample, she used batiks with a white on white print that had lots of contrast!


The pattern is made using the Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful.



I had success making the solid curves (the red ones on the right) but was having trouble with the pieced ones, they just didn't fit. So I decided to take the ...

Have you tried Quick Curve Ruler? from Fabric of My Life

Hi everyone and happy Monday!

Spring is finally here in Buffalo, NY - the birdsong every morning just makes me smile!
Weekend was busy but really wonderful.
Some quilty fun, (meeting of the WNY MQG, read all about it HERE) some garden work, great walks with our furry kids and crowned with lovely Sunday dinner with our kids - can one ask for anything more? :)
Our grand-puppy Oliver was visiting Saturday - just love this cutie...

He was so excited to walk with his big buddy Marley, sometimes he almost walked sideways! :)
Neighborhood watch...like a big boy:

Hubby was just so happy ...

Soft Waves Quilt Finish from Melanie Ham Designs

Hey there!

So today, I wanted to share with you a quilt finish from the end of last year.  Let me just start off by saying how much I love this quilt!  I made this quilt with my students from quilting class back in Honolulu using the quick curve ruler.  I used the Riley Blake ombre fabric and Moda white to complete this quilt.  Then, to top it off and make it extra special, I sent it to a friend to have her machine quilt it on her long arm machine. First time I have ever done that!  I am ...

Joining In the "Mod Olives" Quilt-A-Long from Color Me Quilty

Jenny at Sew Kind of Wonderful is having a Quilt-A-Long (QAL), using her Quick Curve Ruler. I joined one of her QAL a couple of years ago and made my Urban Nine Patch baby quilt that I just love. So, I think it's time to join in again.

Sew Kind of Wonderful
Last night I went into my stash to look for fabric combinations. What do you think of this?























I've ordered some Kona "Coal" for the background, this was the darkest grey I had in my stash. I think "Coal" will be darker but a bit warmer ...

Christmas Runner - Fun Poinsettia from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!


It was time to make a Christmas runner and the perfect pattern appeared on Jenny Pedigo's blog called 'Fun Poinsettias'. I love Jenny's curved patterns all done with the wonderful Quick Curve ruler. The pattern is free, easy to follow and quick to make. 

There is a Flickr site - The Fun Poinsettia Pool - where you can upload your finished projects. I can already see a few popping up on IG and FB in festive fabrics.


As it is a gift and I am not sure of the recipients decor, I used the beautiful neutrals found in Robert Kaufman ...
