House Hunt from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Not only are we outrageously far apart in the location of our retirement but also in the retirement home. This morning I sent him a link to this house. It needs some updating and the kitchen would have to be gutted because I do not want painted cabinets and I think I could arrange it...

9 Reasons Why Your Longarmer Might Be Late With Your Quilt In The Spring, and My Fave From St. Jacobs from caledonia quilter

I don't know where you live, but HERE we had a bit of nice spring weather and then we got blasted TWICE with more winter.  Now that the temperature is finally Helen-friendly, I check the Weather Network and see that the pollen counts are off the charts - which explains the sneezing and stuffy sinuses.  Nevertheless... I love spring!!! When the weather gets warm and I can strip off the jacket, scarf and mitts I have a difficult time staying indoors.

9 REASONS WHY YOUR LONGARMER MIGHT BE LATE WITH YOUR QUILT IN THE SPRING

Ask Me what I do NOT know about Chalk! from The Quilt Quine

There should be a prize for quilting Stamina – I put in some long days at the quilt frame, sometimes 9+ hours and finally reached the point where I could unload and turn the quilt to tackle the remaining 2 borders on the horizontal. 

For some relief from quilting I made some binding/flange samples, the idea being that the edge looks a bit like military ribbons. The skinny ones looked very smart and I will save that method for a future quilt bu I decided that ¼” flanges suit this quilt best with a wide ½” binding. 

  

I finally completed ...

Crazy Quilt Block from High Road Quilter


I expected to take one fifteen minute stitching session to make my block for my crazy quilting class with Kathy Shaw, but it took a long time to pick out more fabrics since my planned pieces were too small, cut out the templates, arrange and rearrange the fabric in my mind, cut out the fabrics and cut more to balance out the colors, find and clean the baby iron, sew the blocks, press, sew, press, sew, press, sew, press, sew, press, sew, press, look for the lost piece, and finally cut something else to fit.


I chose a very neutral ...

Triangle Quilt Top from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

After much cutting...well, really just cranking the handle on the Go! cutter:  lots of stitching: endless pressing and copious amounts of starch: My triangle quilt has been pieced: It's 51" x 61" and I wish it were bigger. I have more fabric, but I got tired of sewing those little 4 1/2" triangles. I'm pretty happy with it. Most of the points match well: A few, not so much

Sewing Day from Quilting and More...

I’ve been neglecting my blog lately, mainly because my shoulder has been acting up, so I haven’t been able to do much quilting. I’m thinking I’m going to limit myself to smaller projects from now on to keep this from happening. At any rate, yesterday my granddaughter came over for another session of working on […]

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

Bunny Hop Baby Quilt and Book Question Answered from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

*In my previous post, I had a question in a comment from an anonymous reader. I thought I'd answer her question here since I didn't have any contact information. She asked where I stored all of our books. Bookshelves. Many bookshelves. There is one in every room. Each bedroom (3) has one - plus a 5' x 6' bookshelf in the office. There are two in the living room and one in the hallway. Oh, and one

Rainbow Panes from Liz Makes Crafts

I'm not sure why, but I've been on a mini quilt kick lately! (Okay, I know why. I want to fill up my new quilting studio's walls.)

After making L'arc en Ciel a few months ago, I had 6 little squares of each color left over.

These were the improv crazy blocks that I made, and they were far too precious to throw away. So I decided to sew them together to make a mini quilt. But as soon as I sewed 2 blocks together, I pulled them back apart. I realized I wanted to put ...

Studio Lighting Upgrade from Becca's Crazy Projects

The overhead lighting in my studio was less than optimal. It was a smart bulb, but not a very bright one.
This is about the best it would get. Come evening, it was a struggle.
My Darling Husband bought me a smart fixture. The Haiku Home Premier light has a remote, is compatible with Alexa, has adjustable intensity and color, as well as a motion sensor.
Overall it is a great improvement over the last fixture and lamp.
                                 
Here they are side-by-side. Come evening, I'm sure I will appreciate it even more. Installation was super quick and easy. It ...

Weekly Recap of 15 Minutes to Stitch from High Road Quilter

 

15 Minutes to Stitch

I had a busy week at work, and on the time I did have off, I chose to rest instead of quilt. I did not manage to get all seven sewing sessions last week. I did quilt some, so maybe about half of the sessions.

I am still sewing rows of On Ringo Lake blocks and sashing, and debating whether I want to make the quilt as big as I planned.  The quilt is queen sized, but my bed is a double bed. I thought a queen quilt would be more versatile and could just hang ...

Big Shabby Chic Finish from Heart Desire Creations

image

Much of my stash has bright colors and bold prints. In contrast, I do love white on whites and off-white on off-whites.  A couple of years ago I gathered whatever of those two I had in my stash and bought many, many fat quarters. Apparently it was meant to be because I happened upon a warehouse type fabric shop that had a ton of these fabrics for just $1.25 a fat quarter – score!

I wanted the fabrics to speak and not an elaborate design.  I cut a ton of triangles (starched to avoid stretching) and proceeded to sew many ...
