Colorful! from Splendiferous

I've made 3 quilts recently, and none of them can be published on the web yet due to entry rules for various events.  Two of them WILL be published in a book next spring!  The book is tentatively titled Dare to Dance:  An Artist's Interpretation of Joy, and the author is Mary Kerr.

Pleinweave, made several years ago from fabric I spray-dyed especially for this quilt, and very carefully cut and pieced to keep the original color flow.  The pattern is a traditional basket lattice.

I made several smaller pieces from the leftover dyed fabrics, and more black ...

Fabric Temptation from Tim Quilts

I realized that if I am going to enter my Snowflake quilt in the AQS show in Lancaster next year I will need to finish it by Nov 6 .   Yikes!

Lots of quilting to go!

I really do want to make this one

fall idea

But I will finish the snowflake first.

Temptation is strong to work on the new one

I have some fabrics ready


The picture doesn’t do them justice, they are actually brighter, but you can get the idea.

perhaps just a few blocks?

I’ll let you know next time

Happy Quilting

Modern quilt for the Bloggers Quilt Festival from Better than I deserve!

 This is something new for me a quilt as you go. It was really fun:)
 I won the jellyroll so that made it even better.
 The pattern is in the book Quilt As-You_Go by Jera Brandvig. I got my on sale at Connecting Threads.
 I used the whole jelly roll. The pillow was a wrong cut on one of the blocks!!

I am entering it in the modern  quilt category  at the Blogger's Quilt Festival
 Thanks to Amy we get to see all the beautiful quilts in one place....JMF

Seventeen from Wedding Dress Blue

For…well…let’s just say “for a while,” Daughter (Sparkle Jane) and I have been working on a massive project of love:  The Francis Quilts.

This project is a set of seventeen memory quilts in honor of the sister-in-law of a family friend.


As of today, the tops are pieced–all seventeen of them.

There is still a long ways to go, but we have made it this far. Quilting next!

Drunkard’s Path Quilt Along from Quilt Obsession


Seems I missed a week altogether, but now I have another Drunkard’s Path basket block to add to my first one. I don’t seem to be moving very quickly on making these, which surprises me as I normally churn out little Drunkard’s Path blocks in seconds. Love that curved piecing!


So I pulled a few batiks that I think will play nicely as basket blocks and some of these will get used. I now have a setting idea, so will be printing the shapes for and making the centre block next and then will work around it ...

Blossoms, Cats, and Birds from ... Cat Patches

We've had a lovely fall here at the Three Cats Ranch. Nevertheless, fall always gives way to what Mike calls the "fat lady" who sits down over Portland for the entire winter. It's been raining for days. There are days of rain ahead in the forecast. It looks like it's here to stay. With so much of the country in drought, we've learned to appreciate our rain more than ever. It keeps everything green, but it can depress as well. Sue and I had a good long walk this morning after first meeting at the South ...

Travel to Louisiana for Satsumas from Marty's Fiber Musings

 We are getting down to the finish line with the Louisiana traveling quilt.  Kelly's has just left the house on to the next quilter to add another block. 

I had to really think about this one.  "Louisiana" is the theme Kelly decided each of us should consider when adding our blocks to her quilt.   I live here so this should be easy yet when I received her quilt, I was at a loss - not because I don't know about my state, but because there was so much extreme applique and English paper-piecing.  I went into overwhelm at the ...

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)

Bloggers Quilt Festival Fall 2014 – Fiesta from Sew What's Cooking


Blogger's Quilt Festival -

This year I have a second entry for Blogger’s Quilt Festival.  This was another quilt finish from earlier this year, Fiesta.  You can find it in the November/December issue of Modern Quilts Unlimited.

Modern Quilts UnlimitedI really enjoyed this making this quilt though it was a challenge at first.  I hadn’t worked with just solids much – especially not for a whole quilt.  I started with the endless staircase pattern and played around with the design for a while and finally settled on what you see today.  I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

Amy's Creative Side

It's here! The Blogger's Quilt Festival for Fall, 2014. Thanks to Amy's Creative Side for posting this semi-annual event.

Today I'm showing off a quilt that is special to me. I call this quilt "We are the World", and it was created for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2013. This is my adaptation of the "Little Red Dresses" pattern by Barbara Weiland Talbert. 

For this quilt, I tried something completely new for the quilting. I found a pantograph that was perfect on Urban Elementz called "Paper Dolls", but with this being quilted on my domestic machine ...

Blogger's Quilt Festival: Happy Campers from ... Cat Patches

Amy's Creative Side

It's here! The Blogger's Quilt Festival for Fall, 2014. Thanks to Amy's Creative Side for posting this semi-annual event.

Today I'm showing off my quilt "Happy Campers".

This quilt was inspired by the art work of Portland artist Rachel Austin, who graciously gave me permission to use her original art work to make this quilt. She does the cutest stuff. You can see more of Rachel's work here in her Etsy shop. I saw Rachel's multi-media prints hanging in a restaurant some time ago, and eventually got around to making the quilt blocks I ...
