SBQG Quilt Show Recap from Quilting with Kimberly

This past weekend my local quilt guild, the South Bay Quilt Guild, held it’s annual quilt show at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center in Torrance, CA. It was a great show! Lots of beautiful quilts, a quilt auction, featured artist, vendors and challenge quilts were on display. I thought you might like to see a few photos. The members worked so hard to make this a fabulous event and their hard work and efforts certainly paid off!

The show was well attended by many from the local community. Both days (Saturday and Sunday) saw big crowds which, of course ...

I’ve joined a gang. from Quilting with Kimberly

The Sewing Arts Center famous ‘blue wall.” This is an iconic photo spot! My new Stitchin’ Babes Roadies: from left, Pat, Marie, and Melanie

Every gal needs a group of cronies where she can ‘belong’ and I’m no exception. Thankfully, I have found my gang and we’re calling ourselves the Stitchin’ Babes Roadies. (Cue: giggles.)

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I hosted the kit cutting party here at my house? (If you missed it, you can read about it by CLICKING HERE.) My friend, Melanie was there and I was asking about local quilt shops in ...

forwards and backwards . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Because this post covers a lot of time, current and past!  
I finally finished up Ellie's bicycle embroidery, which was a good thing ... her (8th) birthday was Friday and we celebrated last night! It's a simple finish because I didn't want the fabric or the quilting to take away from the piece it was showcasing.  Mission accomplished!  *smirk*  Ellie had her first slumber party on Friday night, so we did family dinner at a Japanese restaurant called Edo's.  Her choice!
I love the complexity of this sweet girl.  For all that she loves girlie things (check ...

Quilt Shop Stop Ahead from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

Our girl's been in Oklahoma for 18 months and although I've been there a couple of times, her Daddy never has. She makes the trip home quite a bit (we'll take her and our boy anytime we can get them) and it hasn't been long since her last visit. This last weekend we remedied that with a little  road trip that allowed us time to catch up on podcasts: On a 7 hour trip, we pass through 2 decent

A Quilt Shop Stop and the Inspirational English Countryside from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

As a child, I (Kara) lived in England while my father was stationed there with the Air Force. Our family had a bright, orange Volkswagon van that carried us to the many wonderful places throughout the island for our holidays. Ever since that time, I have always loved Britain—the cities, the countryside, and especially the people.

My husband often has to travel there for work, and anytime I can tag along, I will. On one of our previous visits, I visited the shop Bee Crafty and met some wonderful ladies (you can read about that here), so I decided ...

Missouri Star Shop Feature: Primitive & Wool from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

“Primitive,” also known as “Early Americana” style, emerged from within the first colonies here in the “New World.” Once the colonists were finally settled in, they had a bit more time get creative with everyday necessities such as clothing, furniture, and children’s toys.

While sewing up clothes for their children and fulfilling the duty of “homemaker,” women started to enhance their making skills with decorative stitching and design, steering away from trends in Europe and creating the first American style.

Today, folk artists use modern elements to create an antiquated look. At Missouri Star Quilt Co., we have a ...

The Fastest Moda Trip from Quilting with Care

At the start of this week we went on a road trip.  Cindy (mom), Tracy, Misty and myself piled in a Honda Pilot and set off towards Dallas.  We drove late Sunday night after the shop closed. We laughed more than humanly possible, ate yummy food, and arrived at the hotel without any limbs lost. There… Continue reading The Fastest Moda Trip
