A NWI Modern Quilt Guild??? from Eric the Quilter

modern

I was thinking about this the other day… How nice would it be to have a modern quilt guild in Northwest Indiana? Personally my quilts are kind of a mixed back of traditional and modern work, but it all would be welcome here. Anyone interested in helping? Let me know!

Celebrating 150 with Quilts from Quilting & Learning

150 years of quilting in Canada exhibitI've had a crazy busy week with Art with Fabric on Monday and then a two-day surface design course with Hillary Rice. I can't wait to write a post about my surface design experiments, but it'll have to wait a few days, cause today we're going to Celebrate - Fêtons 150 with some amazing quilts from the Ottawa Valley Quilter's Guild Show - Festival of Quilts 2017.

There was an exhibit of  "150 Years of Quilting in Canada" at the Festival of Quilts 2017. The quilt below fits right into our theme. The British Empire Quilt features ...

Saturday Stash And Restraint from Quilt Paint Create

In case you haven’t heard, Judy is no longer posting the stash report linky on her blog, Patchwork Times. Without a public forum to encourage accountability, I’m a little concerned my stash will multiply at a much higher rate. Anyone else feel the same?

So for the next month, I will post a linky on my blog in case anyone else wants to continue with the stash reports. If it doesn’t catch on, I’ll let it go, but still continue to post my own stash numbers on a less frequent basis. I just happened to have ...

Seasonal Quilts- Piecemakers Quilt Guild from Humble Quilts

I had the privileged of sharing my lecture Seasonal Quilts with the guild in McMinnville on Monday. Ruth was kind enough to share some of her photos with me.

 I started with fall quilts- the very first one I show is my first sampler (no photo) but this one shouts "AUTUMN" to me!
 I brought a few smaller quilts and happen to choose Country Roads.
Mary Lu was a guest and happened to bring her Country Roads quilt too! 
I love that! (Thanks for the fabric too!!)

Winter- it doesn't always mean Christmas

 Spring- This is a fun way ...

We've been home for a month, and my report hasn't changed at all!
We seem to take longer each year to get back into the groove.....
We've had lots of rain since we returned, and there is some localized flooding, but not near our home, so far.  Lake Ontario has an extremely high water level, and many docks and waterside properties are flooded as ...

Getting There from Quilt Paint Create

I FINALLY finished the main body of the Bricks quilt.

bricks-centerIt feels like I’ve been working on it forever. It needs borders, but that can wait until another day.

This quilt will go to Safehouse, a battered women’s shelter. I’d like to have it done for the next guild meeting in three weeks. It always feels good to turn in a quilt and get it out of the house.

I’m definitely ready for some smaller projects after this quilt and the rug.

I’m linking to Whoop Whoop Friday.

Compelled, And A Mom Update from Quilt Paint Create

After a lot of tests and a trip to the doctor, I think we’ve hit a better place with mom’s health. She seems to be on the upswing. It may not last, but I’ll take the reprieve. Maybe now I can start thinking about the holidays.

The extra time off around the holidays is my favorite time to make big progress on quilting projects.

Right before Thanksgiving I brought these adorable mini nine patch blocks home from the guild charity quilt table. I don’t know why, but I’m drawn to other people’s unfinished projects ...

Stash Report And Baby Nines from Quilt Paint Create

I’m thrilled to report I did not add any fabric this week. I didn’t finish anything either but will have usage next week.

The thrift shop was a big disappointment yesterday. Their stock was way down, which doesn’t surprise me since it was the third time in a row donations were closed when I was there. Just as well since I have no more room for anything.

I picked up a book off the free table at guild yesterday and brought home a box of the charity quilt fabric to store until next meeting. The guild always ...

A Fun Visit from Quilt Doodle Doodles

I made a special visit to the Prior Lake Quilters on Tuesday. What a wonderful, talented group of ladies. They were welcoming and fun... I'm always nervous when I do these appearances and afterwards I always think of what I should have said, or forgotten to say... one of these days I will give a perfect presentation. The ladies enjoyed my samples and the freebie design that I handed out. Murphy had fun and did a little of photo bombing while the ladies gathered for the evening.
I always look forward to the 'show and tell' part of the ...

Stash Report And Readjusting from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric bought or used this week.

I went to one quilt shop on the road, but it was small and everything was at least six or seven years old. I’ve never been to a shop that had nothing current, not a book or pattern or pre-cut. It was like the past several years passed that shop by. I honestly could not imagine how she stayed in business.

I had guild yesterday but only bought a couple books at the thrift. I like the appliqué and embroidery book a lot. It’s one I haven’t seen before.

» The Quilting Queen Blog

Last week at the Alamo Heritage Quilt Guild, this sweet lady was the guest speaker.  I was so excited when I sew her name on the program list.  I've been friends with Linda at Buzzing and Bumbling for several years.  The thing is, I've never met her in person.  We've been blog land friends all this time.  I couldn't wait to get to the meeting to meet her.


After my introduction to her, she was excited too.  She never dreamed she'd be meeting me there.  I didn't give her a heads up ahead of ...

August 22nd Class from StitchinGirlMary's Blog

Last summer I spoke to the quilters at Everybody’s Quilters Guild.  This summer I am teaching a class to those same ladies.  This post has been written with the class in mind.  It will outline the steps in my process and provide a list of supplies that should be brought to the class.  I am so excited for this opportunity!

Hello Ladies!  By this time most of you will have sent me a photo of the home or barn you wish to create in quilt form.  I am in the process of enlarging your photos to the desired 11X17 ...
