Pattern Testing – Sneak Peak from Grey Cat Quilts

A couple or so weeks ago, I volunteered to test a quilt pattern for a fellow blogger. I’ve worked on it in fits and starts, then realized yesterday that my deadline was coming due. Now, I’m the kind of person who just loves deadlines. It makes me reach farther, work harder and faster. Admittedly, most of the […]

Confessions Of The Slowest Quilter Ever from The Littlest Thistle

If it's time for Fall Market, it must also be time for the Fall Bloggers Quilt Festival.  My blog feed is filling up nicely with quilts being shown off, and my IG feed is filling up with the fabric that will no doubt feature in the Spring Bloggers Quilt Festival.  Since it was all kicking off, I toddled off to have a look at my quilty finishes in the last 5 months and discovered...

I Katy Cameron, hoster of the Finish Along 2014, am the slowest quilt finisher ever.  I have finished precisely no more quilts than I had ...

The making of "Long May it Wave" AND Blogger's Quilt Festival from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

I didn't post much while making Long May it Wave because its owner, Cindy, reads my blog and I didn't want to risk the chance of her finding out about it--I wanted it to be a surprise. Now that it has been gifted, I can share the process. This is a very long post because I talk about the entire process and I am a process kind of girl, so fair warning. AND I decided to enter this quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival that starts today.

This quilt began with the germ of an idea based ...

JSS Fall Retreat – Design Wall Transitions from Cookie's Creek

Our wonderful JSS Bee retreat was this past week at Compass Centre in Mount Calm, Texas.  We had a blast!  Lots of great food, serious stitching and an enormous amount of laughter! Rather than fight the failing flaky internet with daily posts about the retreat I saved up all my pictures for one gigantic blog.  Here we go….

Sally-and-Barb-are-ExcitedWhen I was going through my pictures I noticed several projects that started as works in progress and were completed or nearly completed over the course of the retreat.  Call it Design Wall Transitions

Here is a little quilt that Lynda was ...

Circular Detour from Inside Quilters Newsletter

Even with all the excitement and bustle of everyone preparing for Market, I was able to take a little side trip away from thinking about quilts and making them, just for fun (and just for a bit. There’s a lot of quilting that needs to be done!). I recently found this great piece of fabric at the thrift store, a big panel printed with a circular motif.

My big circular panel. $4.99 at the thrift store.

It might be fun to turn it into something I could wear. And what is more perfect for a big circular print ...

edge work from Tim Quilts

Last time I posted about the snowflake quilt


and said that I pinned towels to the edges to make quilting the edges easier in the hoop.


Today I put it in the hoop so here is how it looks


The light was perfect so I took a few more pictures …when the light is right it really shows the texture. (click pictures to enlarge)

Bear Quilt (Blogger’s Quilt Festival) from The Champ Life

Woohoo! It’s that time of year again! I haven’t had time this year to do a lot of my own quilting- after we moved I’ve done a lot of quilting for others! But, I did manage to make this baby quilt for a good friend’s newborn baby boy. She told me the theme of his nursery was bears, so I ran with it.


The fabric is S’more Love by Eric and Julie Comstock for Moda, and some Mini Series Cream Bears yardage by Timeless Treasures. As always, I used Warm & Natural batting, Aurifil thread for ...

The Last of the Zinnias… from a daily dose of fiber

October Zinnias

Summer is officially over on the shores of Lake Robinson! We turned on the heat yesterday and I spent Tuesday pulling out the Summer annuals and putting them on the mulch pile. Today I am washing the Winter quilts and drying them in the bright sun…

Blogger’s Quilter Festival from Jo's Country Junction


It is hard to believe it is that time of year again.  It’s time for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy at Amy’s Creative Side.

Silly me, I forgot to hold a new quilt back just for the show so I thought and thought and thought about what I could show you that was new.  Nothing came to me.  That’s when I decided that I actually could show you something new….

I know…I know.  You’re likely thinking, why is she showing us Quilty magazine?

The answer…that cover quilt is our quilt!!  When ...

Zombie Ball - Blogger's Quilt Festival from Field Trips in Fiber

Zombie Ball vicki welsh

Zombie Ball

36" square (more or less)

This quilt was so much fun to make! This is the third year that I've made a quilt for Benartex using Paula Nadelstern's new fabric line. This year the line is called Fabracadabra and it's being introduced at quilt market in Houston but you can pre-order the fabric (and a kit for this quilt) at Cotton Club.

Zombie Ball one block

The best thing about this quilt is the simple construction. Each block finishes at 6" and is a simple Drunkard's Path block. All of the complexity comes from the fabric. In constructed ...

Cross the Drunkard's Path Quilt Along from Field Trips in Fiber

Cross the Drunkard’s Path Quilt Along
OK, I'll admit that there has been very little progress around here this week. I think I may have sewn 20 more but I haven't accomplished much of anything this week! I am feeling better though so I expect some progress this weekend. Meanwhile 11 other people made grate progress on their DP projects!
I also only got one layout done for the week but I do like it.
Oct 24

From K - Modern Maples Quilt Top from Everyday Fray

Fall is hands down my very favourite time of the year. Honestly what's not to love? Fresh crisp air, warm spicy drinks, a house that smells of baking, boots, outfits with lots of layers, and of course, fall leaves! There is no other time of year that I feel as happy, or surprisingly as domestic, as I do in the fall. As a quilter, there is no better way to celebrate this season than making a special quilt inspired by it.

Back in September while pulling fabric from my stash for a baby quilt, I accidentally pulled a rather ...

Excellent exhibitions from Always Playing with Thread

I have recently attended two quilt exhibitions, each one a treat.  The first was “Quilts in the Barn” and the second “Eastern Palliative Care Quilt Show”.  Each is held annually during spring in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and each is a fund-raiser for very worthwhile causes, breast cancer research and Eastern Palliative  Care respectively.  In this post I will share some photos of Quilts In the Barn. (Permission given).

My friend and I arrived right on opening time which meant we avoided a  long queue. Before very long things became very busy, especially so later in the morning when ...

Karma from Slightly Off Quilter


We all know that saying, about Karma being a bitch, but I am here to tell you she can also be a wonderful angel. It’s all about what you send out, that determines what comes back at you.

A few weeks ago, our local seamstress was having a moving sale. She is retiring and moving south, so she was selling off almost all of her sewing items ! In her listing, she had mentioned that she had over 180 cones of thread, so you KNOW I was there bright and early at 9 AM when the listing said she was ...

Things that help when you don't feel well..... from Field Trips in Fiber

Soup, blankets and sleep help some but what helps the most is getting packages in the mail!

Apparently I placed some very timely orders last week and both arrived yesterday.

Oct 23 rulers 1

For FloMo I got some new rulers from The Gadget Girls. I've been wanting a set of ovals for a long time. I can use these for continuous curves in blocks, swag borders and tons of other things.

Oct 23 rulers 2

I also got 2 ribbon rulers and these are designed correctly! I have 4 sizes of ribbons here that I can make. I ordered 3/8" rulers this time. That's ...

more finishes from Quilt Nut Creations

Finished another Christmas quilt kit from the bin of guilt.

I changed this one up from the pattern. It calls for appliqued snowflakes on the quilt; I'm leaving those off. I also changed the corners from 4 patches to a solid square.

I also did some playing with my table runner leftovers.

I'm still playing with layout ideas so this is on hold for right now. I am loving what it is for the moment though!
