Celebrating a Half-Century from Terificreations's Weblog

Celebrating the big five-zero in ten short days. Some days I wonder where the time went, and some days I know exactly. I am grateful for the opportunity to be here, to become a quilter. I’m grateful for the struggles, and the joys. I’m grateful for those whose lives I’ve had the opportunity to spend… Continue reading Celebrating a Half-Century

Remnants, Fat Quarters, Bits, Pieces from Terificreations's Weblog

Quilters have this thing for remnants. There exists in the community a myth that remnants, small bits and pieces left over from making clothes, is the traditional way to make quilts. While this is certainly part of the culture of quilting, a “making do” with whatcha got saved from bits and pieces of other things… Continue reading Remnants, Fat Quarters, Bits, Pieces

From a Retreat to You from Terificreations's Weblog

I spent last weekend at a retreat, not quilt related, but one that seriously bolstered my commitment to building up the Quilting Community. In one of the talks we heard a saying from Trinidad that goes something like, “It is not my business what you think of me”. Weirdly both my pens and phone were… Continue reading From a Retreat to You

Quilting This Week from Terificreations's Weblog

A Name and a Purpose is taking shape and form.  Meet “Lenny” in process. The overall look will change over time as the overall idea takes shape. Thread spools sit next to the machine excitedly waving for attention at each thread change. Sometimes they get picked, sometimes I head to the drawer for another color. They’ll… Continue reading Quilting This Week

Moon Over Manhattan, a bit O’humor from Terificreations's Weblog

  Oh Little Miss Sassy Pants how I love you. The story of birthing you came to mind this afternoon when someone mentioned that the Quilt National submission entry is September 5. If I had an idea I’d probably try and submit again, because after all there is time. Oh dear me, here we go,… Continue reading Moon Over Manhattan, a bit O’humor

On Becoming a Machine Quilter from Terificreations's Weblog

A sultry summer day in the City with quilting friends leads to sharing stories over coffee and cookies. The how of being where we are as quilting teachers is often humorous. The image on the left holds within it’s stitches the beginnings. My Sweetie’s Quilt took a wee bit longer to make than intended. It… Continue reading On Becoming a Machine Quilter

phew from Terificreations's Weblog

I have this thing where I like to make a friend of mine laugh. It’s a good goal. Seriously. And it’d be great if I could remember how this started, but I can see the big 5-0 approaching and yeah, that’s not going to come to mind. Several months back she told me about an… Continue reading phew

The Week of Deadlines from Terificreations's Weblog

Florabunda! Melanie Testa, RJR a bit of magic from Terificreations's Weblog

Several years ago Melanie, Elizabeth Rosenberg and I met for lunch. We ended up laughing so hard and so much that we annoyed the family at the next table. Which was hilarious in and of itself, and only got us laughing more. Florabunda!, Melanie’s first line with RJR Fabrics #quiltwithlove, is all of what is… Continue reading Florabunda!

Clenching from Terificreations's Weblog

Several years ago while getting ready to have a bunion surgery I learned that the bones of my feet go off to the left/right accordingly, rather than going straight like they should. This creates a bit of swelling on the top of my feet, that sometimes makes standing, and walking annoying, painful, irritating. Problem is,… Continue reading Clenching

I love Rainy Days and Mondays! from Terificreations's Weblog

Cue Karen Carpenter I love her voice. I love rainy days – usually. And Monday’s – most of the time. It’s rainy here in New York City, we’ve received two flood alerts already.

Quilts Speak from Terificreations's Weblog

As I worked on this Impractical Color wheel I learned a little something. Giving the motifs a little room to breathe, at least visually, allows the color to speak, and the piece looks a little less crowded. The transition from red to orange is visually tight, reading as a bit overwhelming. The transitions after that… Continue reading Quilts Speak
