Someone Pinch Me! My Mission Impossible Quilt was Juried Into QuiltCon Together 2021! from Cheeky Cognoscenti

You guys, I got the acceptance email two days ago, but I couldn't tell anyone about it at first because it seemed so unreal.  I had to go to bed, wake up in the morning, and check my email again to make sure it was still there.  My Mission Impossible quilt was accepted by the jurists into QuiltCon Together 2021!

Just a Glimpse of My Mission Impossible Quilt

This quilt is my original design, made for my oldest son's high school graduation in 2019 and sized to fit his XL Twin dorm bed when he went off to ...

Quilts of Melissa Sobotka at the Handi Quilter Gallery from Essie's Quilts

We are so lucky at Handi Quilter to have a gallery that features collections from exceptional quilters from all around the world. And right now, our gallery is filled with the lovely quilts of Melissa Sobotka. Melissa achieves a photo-realistic style of quilting by appliqueing raw edge pieces of batik fabrics. Then she enhances with inks to give greater depth.

Our gallery is open to the public. If you live nearby and would like to visit our gallery, you are welcome. Covid precautions are in force to keep our employees (and you) safe.  But I will share photos with you ...

Aurora Colony Quilt Show 2020 from Humble Quilts

I always look forward to the Aurora Colony Quilt Show so when I found out they were still going to have it, I was thrilled. It was a scaled down version and included only the Historical Colony Quilts this year. My favorites, so even better!


Lydia Bauer Irvin 1866-1899
 There was no explanation about the 2 dates and initials.

My photo looks very orange but it was more of a reddish orange. The large one in the back:  unknown maker, 1860-1880
The little one is a reproduction made by the Aurora Colony Historical Society in 2007


Pieced and quilted by ...

an outdoor photo shoot from Ellyn's Place

 Is anyone else desperately missing their quilting buddies? Our improv small group has been meeting on Zoom since March but it's just not the same. Since the Texas weather is finally cooling down (hooray for fall!) we decided to do an outdoor quilt photo shoot at a nearby park. We met at the park in the morning on a perfect, cool and cloudy day and got some beautiful photos of our quilts.

Five of us met, we all wore masks and social distanced to keep each other safe. There was a pretty gazebo that served as a nice backdrop ...

Two quilt shows in one weekend! from Wendy's Quilts and More

Yes, I'm planning on visiting two quilt shows this weekend.  I'm off on another holiday and this time I'm going to the Chateau Tongariro Hotel in the central North Island.  


This hotel was originally built in the 1920's, but it's got all the mod cons now.  I've never been inside, so it will be something new for me.  

I know a lot of you have been to New Zealand, but you've probably never been here because it's right in the middle of the North Island.  It's below Lake Taupo, but off ...

Capital Quilters' Exhibition is on next weekend 3-4 October from Wendy's Quilts and More

Good news - we're back at COVID Level 1 (our lowest level) and our quilt show is going ahead next weekend.  

I'm really looking forward to seeing my Glitter quilt hanging, and then getting to take it home again.  Although I finished Glitter back in April 2020, I haven't used it on our bed yet, or shared it on social media.  It was to be my main entry in the QuiltNSW Sydney Quilt Show, but that got pushed back twice, and is now cancelled for 2020.  Our own shown in Wellington has been pushed back once, but we ...

Wednesday's Word: Psalm 22. Wednesday Wrap Ups: 1930's Baby Quilt/Table Topper! I Like Vintage Quilts from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Wednesday's Word:  
Let’s continue with the verses from Until We Reach Home by Lynn Austin. As her sisters are hospitalized on Ellis Island, Sofia finds herself all alone waiting for them to recover. Her friend shares yet more Scriptures with her. 



So much is happening in our world, in our nation, even in our homes!
Perhaps you are also waiting for loved ones to recover from an illness/addiction.
Perhaps you are also feeling abandoned by God.
Perhaps you are putting on a brave, cheerful face all the while feeling all alone in your own private pain, your ...

Quilt Challenge Day 6 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

 And so it continues. Halfway through the challenge, I'm sharing this quilt that sold at a quilt show back when the museum was the sponsor. I don't know that this picture does it justice, but I barely managed to get this one. The technique, called "repeating Dresden plate" is one that I teach. It such fun to watch the plates create their designs as you put them together. Like magic!

A modern Dresden Plate quilt.  I don't remember the name, and it sold at its first show, where apparently it also won a ribbon.

My entries for Capital Quilters' Exhibition from Wendy's Quilts and More

It's only two weeks until Capital Quilters' Exhibition opens at the Lower Hutt Events Centre.  We're in a bit of a quiet lull at the moment, because we've finished our quilt, and hand the frantic activity of hand in day, and now we're just making final arrangements with the venue.  


I've entered 4 quilts this year.  Here's a sneak peek at my entries.



First up is my Carnival quilt that I also entered into the Quilt NSW Sydney Quilt Show last year.  You can read more about it here.  

Second is my Glitter quilt ...

Quilt Stories (also known as Artist's Statements) from Wendy's Quilts and More

Our exhibition is getting closer! This week I'm going to give a short talk to our guild about Quilt Stories.  You know, that blurb the quilt maker writes to go with their quilt.  


Disclaimer - I'm no expert when it comes to grammar and sentence formation, but I do know what I like to read when I go to a quilt show. 




I know many quilters are modest people and struggle to say something positive about their own quilts!
But I urge you to be proud of your own work.  You've chosen to enter it into the exhibition ...

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

Blogger has made some changes to the blog drafting tool and I'm trying to give it a go before it becomes the standard. It appears the intent was to make the tool easier to use for those writing their posts on mobile devices. I draft my posts using my desktop computer. I can type faster, pull content faster, and generally get from idea to blog post faster on my desktop than I can with my mobile device. I've been blogging either with a desktop of laptop for almost seven years. Change is hard. I just wish the new ...

A Special Quilt Show from Quilting with Claire

I’ve always wanted to find out more about my fellow quilters and I was happy to come and meet the Lennoxville Guild members during the annual quilt show on September 7th, 2019 in Sherbrooke. Blast from the past Interviews My first interview during the Quilt Show was with Hazel Kerr. Talking with Hazel taught me … Continue reading "A Special Quilt Show"

I just got back from our Charlotte Quilters' Guild's annual Carolina Lily Quilt Show.  WOW!  If my mom hadn't needed to get back home to her puppy, I'd STILL be there oohing and ahhing over all those gorgeous quilts, and spending money at vendor booths.  They have fabulous items for sale in the boutique as well.  The show will be open until 4 PM today and then again on Saturday from 9 AM to 4 PM, and I highly recommend that you try to get over there if you're at all local.  The quilt show is ...
