Guild BOM Winner Quilt from Pointless Quilter

Last month at guild I won 29 of these split 9 patch blocks.  I decided to quickly put a few together and make a charity quilt.  This is what I came up  I did have to re-do a couple blocks (1/4" too small) and I had to make 7 additional blocks.  Luckily it was scrappy and the red which was the square they gave us to make the blocks was an easy color for me to match in my stash. 

A co-worker's daughter is graduating high school this year and is taking a European trip this April so ...

Modern Day Dinosaur from Romany Quilting

Did you know that New Zealand can claim to have a modern day dinosaur?  We saw one of these living fossils recently when we visited Nga Manu Nature Reserve.  Peering into an enclosure, we saw  one sitting still, as they do, basking in the sunshine.  There were several young ones in another enclosure, but they we too small for us to spot as they hid amongst the greenery.

Tuatara are the only surviving members of the order Sphenodontia, which was well represented by many species during the age of the dinosaurs, some 200 ...

Unicorn Love from Made By Marney

Magical and mystical unicorns…everybody loves them!


Unicorn Quilt

This adorable Unicorn Quilt measures 34″ x 41 1/2″. The unicorn is paper pieced; the flowers and alphabet letters are applique.

The unicorn is very easy to paper piece, and is great for a beginner. This unicorn would also make a super cute pillow. The alphabet letters and flowers are included in the pattern.

If you are looking for a smaller project, this paper pieced Unicorn block measures 8″ x 8″ unfinished. Here’s an idea of what it might look like in a pillow.

For our Button club project this month I'm ready for spring! 

Pat Sloan Button March Button club Pic 4

The Fat Quarter Shop button box this month has a theme of 'Grow'. With my daffodils coming up and buds on the trees, I'm really in spring mode, even if my Virginia weather throws me a curve ball of a cold day, my heart is already for spring!

When the Cheeky fabric arrived the other day i KNEW this fabric needed to be used soon!

Usually in February or March we have been down south for either an event or a little R&R.  This year neither ...

Binding Done from Quilts....etc.

Such plans for yesterday – I had at least 3 projects I could have worked on – but after the minor thunderstorms of Saturday night we had a great day near 70 on Sunday.  Yard work called to me.  I got grass cut – well it was more mulching of the leftover fall leaves then […]

New material coming! from Maria the Quilter

I know you probably come here for the photos, because, well let’s be honest: in the quilting world, words mean far less than photos. I can explain a stitch but when you see a picture of it, that’s WAY more meaningful. In person? EVEN better!

What I’m here to say is that I am here. I haven’t been posting pix – I had a bit of an issue with my tools but am almost back to full capability there. I have been busy writing on my personal blog (here).

So in the meantime, PLEASE please visit my ...

The Light Between from Quilts + Color

I needed a quilt to fill the space above the bed after we took the mirrors down.
I checked my list and had this top which needed quilting and was in Wisconsin.
My friend Geri went to my house, packaged it up and it arrived here in Florida a short time ago.

I didn't waste any time getting it quilted and ready for the wall.
We were able to get it hung on the wall yesterday. You may notice it is "a little" off center. I made some miscalculations for measurements and didn't even realize it was off ...

Quilting Table Runner–Ready for Binding from Quilts....etc.

It is amazing how fast a project can go when you use left over bits and pieces that are already done.  I got the machine quilting done yesterday and today for Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy I will be hand stitching the binding.  The hand quilting around the applique still needs to be done.  I […]

A Touch of Teal ~~ Finished! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I've had this little pink top sitting in the quilt queue for a while now. It had everything needed for a finish: backing, batting, binding. 

"How easy and quick would this be?," I wondered. "Quite easy and especially quick," I answered. 

So I loaded it and thought about quilt motifs. I wanted, as Richard loves to say, "Quick, fast and in a hurry." 

While quilt my last quilt, I stumbled upon a motif I like that is fast and pretty. It has the look and feel of a pantograph, except that it changes at random rather than repeat in ...

Messing Around With Scraps from Wedding Dress Blue

A bag of pieces-parts came from somewhere.  (I am embarrassed to say that I can’t remember.)  They have been sitting around for way too long.

So I dumped them out and started to sort.

Hmm…what can I do with these?

Still not sure what I am doing, but something is happening…better than having them stuffed in that sack.

A "Twisted" Exhibit! from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

As Teri mentioned last week, we had a great time down in Williamsburg, Virginia, at the Academy of Appliqué. Not only did we teach, but we were able to take a little time beforehand to go to the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, Virginia. It's a great show with various exhibits and some stunning quilts. 

One exhibit that caught our attention was the Twisted exhibit, by Mary Kerr. We love anything vintage and these quilts were vintage with a twist, thus the name. All the quilts in the exhibit were created by combining pieces of vintage textiles with modern ...

Current Project from Wedding Dress Blue

After making enough Climb On practice blocks for a baby quilt, I concluded that I did not want to make a full-size quilt for a young child that way.  Too intricate for the application.  Not that every quilt isn’t important and deserving of my best work, but over 1,000 pieces for a quilt I really hope will be make into a tent, and wrap up a puppy, and be used as a cape…maybe not.DSC01382

So, I am doing this instead.

Larger pieces and larger blocks, but the same mountainous shape.

New Templates from Quilts....etc.

My Panama Pyramids templates arrived so I just had to try them out.  These are hand piecing templates, but there is no reason why you can’t sew by a machine if you want.  With these cut outs you can mark your cutting line and your sewing line which makes them perfect or hand piecing.  These […]

Chocolate Coffee Quilted Mug Rug PQ 10.6 from Mulberry Patch Quilts

I found this cute panel fabric ages ago, and the last Project Quilting challenge of this year is a great time for me to use it!

This week’s PQ challenge is “Craving Chocolate”. I don’t know about you, but when I crave a yummy piece of chocolate, a cup of coffee isn’t far behind. And the chocolaty browns in the panel make me think of a delicious mocha coffee. Mmmm! Chocolate AND coffee…my mouth is watering already.

To make this coffee & chocolate mug rug, I used my EQ8 computer program to design a simple flying geese ...

A Table Runner from Quilts....etc.

Borrego Springs, California from ... Cat Patches

When I finished writing yesterday's post, I looked across the table to see this:


Did you choose this upholstery color to match my beautiful furs?

We weren't meeting her needs in the treat category, and she was letting us know with her eyes. When I had her taken care of, I went back to work sewing the quilt binding. By day's end, I had turned two corners.


The weather was getting warmer yesterday, and these two Oregon cats are still wearing their winter coats. They were flat cats lying on the bed yesterday evening.
