September Show and Tell from Tarheel Piecemakers

We usually have a lot of show and tell, but September was our charity quilt turn in, so most of the quilts were for the challenge.  There were a few, though, for show and tell.

Carole Carter made this Disappearing Nine Patch using a different method than the usual D9P.  The instructions can be found at A New Variation of Disappearing Nine Patch.

Linda Ward showed off a hand pieced, machine-quilted Double Wedding Ring, lovely!!

Madison Quilt Expo–The Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool from Mulberry Patch Quilts

Don’t you just LOVE the vendor booths at the Madison Quilt Expo.  It’s one of my favorite parts of the quilt show…seeing all the latest and greatest gadgets and fabrics, with plenty of demos.  And there were so many vendors to choose from–395 vendors to be exact…wow!  No wonder my feet were tired.  :-)

One booth was demonstrating a ruler from Creative Grids that I just had to have.  It’s called the non-slip 8″ Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool.

The look of log cabin blocks has always intrigued me, but round log cabin blocks are ...

Mini Tumblers from Quilts....etc.

What did I accomplish 8 and a half weeks in a 25 foot 8 inch motorhome- pieced by hand – this much!  “Tumbling into Insanity” is off to a good start. 75 inches wide by 20 inches high I should have been able to get done with more – but what can I say I […]

More Than Worth It from Wedding Dress Blue

A while back I mentioned that I donated a quilt to a local charity.

The results came back today:

$2140.

I’d say that was more than worth it.

Back in the Sewing Saddle from ... Cat Patches

You can tell things are getting back to normal around here because I have a mishmash of things to tell you today. We finished unpacking the trailer yesterday, and it is now safely down in its usual parking place. Of course, once Mike moves it away from the house and the rain starts, I remember several absolutely essential items that I left behind. Then I put on my rain gear and rain boots and make the trek down to the trailer about six or seven times before I actually have everything unpacked. Oh well. That's okay because I did ...

hoppity-hoppity from block-a-day

Well!  You’ll need to settle down with a lovely cup of something to read this one!  The lovely and creative Rebecca of Needle and Spindle asked me to participate in this little bloggity hop, where we get to ramble on about the whole creative process as it fits into our lives.  It’s taken me hours to collect all these thoughts and put them down in some kind of order, but I do hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did thinking about it, and perhaps it will add a little light to the creative chaos that ...

Way back when this tour first started a couple months ago someone asked me to do be a part of the tour and I knew I would be on the road and didn’t know what kind of internet reception I would have so I said no.  When I was asked again last week by Michelle […]

Design Wall Monday - Still Bordering from Life In Pieces

It was a wonderfully relaxing three day weekend.  Though I'm still not ready for it to be Monday.  Last Friday, Drama Teen was told by her physical therapist that she could dump the last crutch and walk on her own.  Which she did on Saturday by attending an all day picnic with her friends.  She paid for all the walking she did at the picnic since she was almost too sore to walk yesterday.  DT still has some work to do to get herself back to full strength, but she's made some really good gains.  She's thrilled ...

Two Very Talented Quilters. from Sew, Rip, Sew

When I was in California visiting Christine she told me about a quilt that she made but wanted some help with the binding.  She said that it was wavy and asked if I could fix it for her.  I don't consider myself a great quilter but I know how to put binding on a quilt.  When I looked at the quilt, the border was also wavy so I proceeded to un-sew the binding and then took off the borders.  She had white borders and we went to two quilt shops in the area but couldn't find white that ...

A Bundle of Fabric from Quilts....etc.

Quite a few years ago I went on a bus trip to a quilt show with the Rogers Arkansas quilt guild.  My daughter’s mother in law, Nancy belonged to the group and she asked me to come with her as a guest – a chance for us to get to know each other better.  Last […]

Fabric Tuesday: Heart & Plus Modern Comfort Quilt from BADLANDS QUILTS: Rugged & Refined



I wanted to make a comfort throw for someone and took inspiration from Gina, one of my fellow guild members, that had made a "stay positive" quilt for a relative.  I added my own twist by including the paper pieced hearts to wish the recipient love and positive thoughts as you can see in the stitching below.



I used a small assortment of Kaffe Fassett prints and shot cottons paired with natural kona cotton for the front and back.  For quilting I tried several new things: circular quilting, 40 weight Aurifil thread (green spool) and Dream Orient batting.   I love ...
