Pillowcase Dresses And Guild Lecture from Humble Quilts

I rec'd two packages this week for Colombia.

Thank you Barb!
She also sent some girly goodie bags to hand out as well.
Wendy sent these adorable dresses too!
Than you both so much!!
Isn't this card stinkin' cute?! Wendy sent it with the dresses.
 Yesterday's guild presentation went very well! I hope they had as much fun as I did! My Sally Post quilt had them confused as to what was the top??
This was the first time I've done the lecture, Reruns: Quilts Inspired by the Past. Hopefully it won't be the last ...

Northwest Quilters Guild from Humble Quilts

I had the pleasure of presenting at the Northwest Quilters Guild in Portland last night!

 My daughter met me for dinner then she came to the meeting! My good friend Michelle from Portland came as well. Debby Dodds, How did I not get a photo of us together?! Debby has done the past 2 large quiltalongs and we have emailed frequently. Only recently did I realize she lived in the Portland area! I got to meet her last night and she has joined this guild so will get to know many new quiltmakers!
 It was a full house.

Sunday Stash July 15, 2017 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric out this week.
Yesterday my guild had their garage sale. I tend to buy a lot of books, but they didn’t have nearly as many as usual. There was a lot of fabric in mostly small pieces. Maybe there were bigger pieces and I didn’t get there fast enough? I picked up a couple books, one in the Masters series and another on landscape quilts that includes a lot of thread painting info.
I thought that would do me until I saw this UFO box as I headed toward the exit.

This project is so not ...

Welcome to Germany: Quilter's Style from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye


The sum total of my stitching choices while I wait
for my sewing room to arrive.
As we told you in our post "Going Global," I (Kara) have moved to Germany! We found out that we would be moving here last October—two days before Teri and I left for Quilt Market in Houston. I waited to tell Teri that it was official until we had arrived at our hotel, and she was sitting down with coffee in hand (wine would have been better, but it was only ten in the morning). She took the news well, and we proceeded ...

Sunday Stash June 25, 2017 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in or out this week. I don’t think I even turned on my sewing machine all week.

I spent yesterday afternoon at an organizational meeting for a small group that is an offshoot of The Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild. The purpose of the group is to make quilts for the guild’s charity, Safehouse, which is a battered women’s shelter. The Guild itself is quite large, which makes it hard to get to know people. There has been a push this year to start more small groups because many of the ones in existence won ...

Summer Flowers from Needle and Foot

I started a new project! Over a year ago I received a stack of Kaffe Fassett florals from somebody. It was during the first round of #getyourquiltywishesgranted on Instagram. I wish I could give proper credit but I just can’t remember which kind quilter sent them. She had offered them up if anyone wanted to use them and I was the lucky recipient. Then, as often happens, they sat on the top shelf in the closet for about 18 months!


At the April guild meeting, they announced a class to be held for using up scraps. I have no ...

Quilt Show and Bragging Rights from Sew Preeti Quilts

I had such a fabulous weekend that I am still reliving the experience through pictures.

Paper Doll Mini Quilt

Mari drove from Delaware so that we could go the Quilt Show together.  She brought me fabric (scraps I requested) and my own paper doll wall hanging.

Juicy Scraps

We ate lunch. Her generous compliments on my culinary skills made me blush and she ended up with leftovers :-) That is a win-win situation.

My Twitter Feed on display at the 44th Quilters Unlimited Show

At the show, I posed with my quilt and beamed with delight  every time I heard appreciation ...

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!

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 ...

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 ...
