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

Then there was that time from Terificreations's Weblog

This text arrived: I fainted at the HQ Booth (They caught me before I hit) How’s your day? Lisa and I ditched Ken in the Pickle Pie booth and walked very, very quickly to the HandiQuilter booth to find Debby well taken care of and fine. We did, however, cut her off from any further… Continue reading Then there was that time

Behind the scenes: Getting ready for Quilt Market Vlog from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Two years ago I went to my first Quilt Market. I had no idea what to expect and it ended up giving me the tools I needed to take Quilt Addicts Anonymous from a blog and small online store into a full blown business.

Then I just had to get on a plane and go. Now, getting ready for Quilt Market is a marathon of sewing, last-minute marketing pushes, setting up meetings to make new and nurture old connections, all while working on very little sleep. And I still have to get on a plane, this time with an overweight ...

An Early Morning Quilt Market Report from Terificreations's Weblog

Please permit me a bit of a reminisce and reflection here. It’ll only take a moment. I started attending when I took the Associate Editor position with Generation Q Magazine. Quilt Market will always hold a bit of magic and mystery. That first Market felt overwhelming, and I felt, like so many others, as though I… Continue reading An Early Morning Quilt Market Report

My Spring 2018 Quilt Market Schedule for Portland, Oregon from Christa Quilts

Quilt Market begins this Wednesday in Portland, Oregon, which is the semi-annual trade show for the quilting industry. I usually attend each time with my husband Jason, but last year when I debuted my first fabric line, it became even more important. This spring I’ll be there promoting my next fabric line, Fandangle, which is a fun, silly word that means embellishment or ornamentation. It hits stores this summer and I can’t wait!

Project Bag and Fabric Buying from Alamosa Quilter

When I was at Fall Market I purchased a few bag patterns to test to see if I want to carry them in my shop. One of them was the Project Bag by Annie Unrein.

I've already ordered patterns for the shop as I love this one! It is easy to make and the pattern makes four sizes of bag - small, medium, large, and extra large. I chose to start with the medium size which finishes at 10" by 12". The large finishes at 13" by 13". The extra large finishes at 16" by 16 which would be a ...

Playing with Ruler Quilting from Alamosa Quilter

When I was at Fall Quilt Market I bought a set of quilting rulers to try out. I'm just now getting around to playing with them.

These blocks are only 6" which is a nice size to practice with. Right now I'm just playing. Eventually I will develop a project or use the one that comes with the rulers and teach this as a class in my shop.

These are done on a domestic machine, not a long arm. They intrigued me for this reason. Not many of my customers have a long arm, but they all have ...

Paper patterns & Quilt Market recap from Flying Parrot Quilts

I wanted to share a little about my new paper patterns and my Quilt Market adventure! Thanks to the Craftsy Quilt Designer Fellowship, I was able to have a booth at Quilt Market, the industry trade show, to launch a new line of paper patterns.

Flying Parrot Quilts patterns

I currently have 11 paper patterns out, all of which you can pick up here in my new online shop (you can, of course, also choose the PDF patterns instead!). I hope you will ask your local quilt shops to carry them, too.
