So I just couldn’t help myself and I went ahead and finished all of the blocks yesterday! I think I am going to go ahead with a navy border. I just need to buy more fabric, how sad!
And because Anne loves to take pictures with my camera, her is her picture of my blocks.
I have been trucking along with the Curve It Up Challenge, pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful. I have all but two blocks done!
Excuse the cell phone picture, but as I write this post it is late at night and the lighting now sucks too much for a real picture.
I am just so happy with how the blocks are turning out. My Fancy Fans and my Drunkards Path blocks are a tad different from the original designs, and I am really happy with how they turned out. I could seriously see a whole quilt made from the fans ...
This weekend and yesterday I took some time for sewing therapy. It is cheaper than the traditional kind of therapy and I can do it in the comfort of my jammies! I worked on blocks 2 and 3 from the Curve It Up Challenge. I have to say I am really enjoying the mental break from designing, though quite soon here I will likely need to take a break from this and start the dreaded Elsa Dress.read more
I have decided that I need a bit of a mental break. I still want to sew, I just don’t want to have to fuss with math and design and all the jazz that comes with designing patterns. So for the next little bit here I am going to work on the Curve It Up Challenge that Sew Kind of Wonderful is hosting right now.
I picked out some American Made Brand solids that I bought from my LQS this summer and whipped up the first block today. It is a curved version of a Churn Dash block. It ...read more
Feeling a bit of fall in the air today!
No, the leaves are not changing here yet.
This photo was taken last fall.
I am just getting ready for sewing for Fall 2014.
I had this post ready to post in September, but I just read this ...

Da lagen sie, die tollen neuen roten Figures-Stoffe; und riefen "Mach einen Quilt aus mir", aber so genau wusste ich nicht, was ich machen sollte und ich hatte Angst, die schönen Stoffe zu verhunzen. Also habe ich gezögert und gezaudert bis ich letzte Woche ein Muster (Metro Twist of Sew Kind of Wonderful) gesehen habe, das ich mit dem Quick Curve Ruler nähen kann. Ich liebe diese Rundungen und ich bin mir sicher, das ist genau das richtige Muster für die Stoffe. Also habe ich geschnitten und genäht und wieder geschnitten und hier ist mein erstes Layout:
Here they were ...
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 ... read more
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 ... read more
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...
Neighborhood watch...like a big boy:
Hubby was just so happy ... read more
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 ...read more
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.

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 ... read more
