Color of the Year quilts on display from Ellyn's Place


You might remember my color of the year quilts I shared earlier in the year, "mirror image". They were made with the Kona color of the year, Splash, and the Pantone color of the year, Living Coral. I made them as part of a challenge with the McKinney Modern Quilt Guild. Here are most of the other quilts and their makers...
This month the quilts are all hanging in a display case at The Roy and Helen Hall Memorial Public Library in McKinney, TX. Hubby and I went to check it out the other day...

Donation Quilts – A Joint Effort. from Sunburnt Quilts

One of my weekly groups is an embroidery session and through it I have met a lot of people and made many friends. Recently one of the ladies brought in a set of 16 embroideries that she had completed several years back but no longer wanted to use – no grandchildren of the right age any more. She wanted to give them away but nobody was able to use them for their own families either. So I suggested to her that I take them and turn them into a donation quilt.

I have been participating in a couple of sessions for ...

Happy Halloween! from StitchinGirlMary's Blog

Those of you who know me know how much I love this time of year. With the cooler weather and the leaves starting to change – I know I am not alone in my contentment. And of course every October we all celebrate the macabre. There’s an acceptance of all things dark and scary that is fascinating– I mean, come on – don’t y’all find it bizarre that you can buy tombstones and human remains at Michaels?

Part of the joy I find in celebrating this time of year is how well our home lends itself to the season ...

moda’s Stitch Pink from Moda Lissa

Hello all,

I had the opportunity to make a quilt block for the month-long series, Stitch Pink. My mom was a breast cancer survivor, so this cause is very near and dear to my heart. Anything that we can do to raise awareness. I am a big believer in positive thinking, and I am so addicted to any quilt block that is a plus sign. I couldn’t think of anything better when it came to making my block than to take my inspiration from my quilt in American Patchwork and Quilting’s June Issue.

The Days of Whine and Quilting from ... Cat Patches

Yesterday, I started quilting the Wine Country quilt in earnest. I'd spent the previous day trying to figure out how to quilt grape leaves for the grapevine. Also, I was looking for pictures of grape leaves. I found quite a few, and it seems the leaves of grapevines show as much variation as any other blooming things in a garden. Toward the end of the day yesterday, I noticed I needed look no further than the border of my own quilt.


I'm using a Gutermann 50 weight thread on top, because that's what I have in my ...

*** My Blocks *** 

I'm making one of each block from the bonus sampler that goes along with the Perfect 5 book.  The sampler sheet & photo are at the end. 

So as I'm making this weeks blocks I realized that I was thinking about how they are constructed. I was analyzing if this block was 'fun' to make, because if it was fun then I'll go back and use it for a full quilt.

Daily Flossing from ... Cat Patches

Happily, I'm not going to lecture you about dental hygiene this morning. No, we're talking about my obsession with embroidery floss, which cost me about half a day's sewing yesterday. There I was stitching along on the Dancing Chickens block, and I finished the section that was in my hoop.


And, coincidentally, I'd just told my friend Wendy how I ordinarily limit my stitching time to two lengths of floss (which, when separated, works out to six lengths). Sometimes I do more though...like when I'm coming to the end of a piece...and then ...
