Lot’s of Trees from Quilts....etc.

we left home on Saturday the 26th and traveled north.  We saw lots and lots of trees – just like home LOL – we traveled all day just stopping here and there to stretch and eat and will be more of the same on Sunday.  We are camped at a very uninteresting campground so nothing […]

Home Stretch from Cat Patches

Yesterday's quilting took me to the tippy top of the Quiltmaker's Garden. The sections between the red and green lines passed under my needle over the course of the sewing day.


All that's left now are the blue sky flowers at the top. Each of those blocks will be quilted individually, and I know just what to do. Barring any earthquakes, floods, or fires, I think the quilting might be finished today. My liberation is near!

When I had it that far, I yanked it off the machine to look at it, and make sure I wasn ...

Flight Path Flimsy from Wedding Dress Blue

Flight Path is now a completed top.

You might recall that a while back I was rejoicing over developing a NON-paper-pieced version of an airplane.

Now that block has several friends, a setting and a border.  What it does NOT have yet is a tutorial.  Classes are out June 1–after that, my schedule will open up to such luxuries.  </p>

Post aus der Vergangenheit #1 from I like to Quiltblog

Mein Plan....
Kaffee Fassett Mystery Quilt
-in einer Gemeinschaftsaktion bei den Quiltfriends
unter der Anleitung von Veri`s kleiner Winkel entstanden.
 
Dieses war mein allererstes Posting in diesem Blog.
Veröffentlicht am 25.01.2011 23:51
Da habe ich mich endlich getraut ein Blog zu erstellen.
Beziehungsweise ich wollte mal gucken wie man das macht,
und zack plötzlich hatte ich ein Blog und gar nichts vorbereitet,
nicht mal richtig überlegt wie mein Blog heißen soll, tja so war das damals. 
Ich hatte keine Ahnung davon und mega Respekt davor
was mich im WordWideBloggerWeb erwartete...

So folgte am nächsten ...

fast four patch quilt top from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

This week I have a simple 4 patch baby quilt top to share. I started it yesterday afternoon and I finished up the top this morning. It was a fun one to sew up!

The pattern is called fast four patch and it's in my friend Amy Smart's book Fabulously Fast Quilts. I was joking with a friend recently that I should actually sew something from my collection of books that I have on my bookshelf. This is a great start! It was fun to follow a pattern and to SKIP the ...

Bedroom Re-Do, Done At Long Last! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Last month we finished recovering the wing chairs in our bedroom. It took a long time, but it was worth it; we're happy with the results. I finished binding "Dixie", the Civil War sampler I posted about here, around the same time that the chairs were completed. I decided to make pillow shams to coordinate with the quilt to complete the look. I purchased some Robert Kaufman Essex Linen in in the

Summer Kites–quilt top finished from Romany Quilting

Colourful kites and their fluttering tails dance across my quilt top.  I won ten of these blocks in a block swap quite some time ago, and stitched up two more.  The suggestion was to use stripes, checks or spots if possible, and most people did.  With the kite blocks stitched together, today I added the dark blue with splashes of colours as a border.  I then prepared a length of binding – it’s always good to get this job done and out of the way.

What to use for backing, I wondered?  My original choice wasn’t long enough, so ...

Cutting Flannel from Quilts....etc.

I have not gotten any quilting done since I last posted and was so terribly busy yesterday.  In between packing and cleaning I sat down and cut more flannel – I might have all the colors cut out and ready to cut the light beige colors when we get home. Other than the flannel I […]

Twinkle - Wish Upon a Star Blog Hop from Creatin' in the Sticks

Welcome to 
Creatin' in the Sticks
where the stars are twinkling today.


The Wish Upon a Star Blog Hop

and she has a super sweet giveaway for the hop.
Don't forget to enter over on her blog by clicking HERE.


I was so excited to make stars, so I started with a couple charm square packs
 (Riley Blake's Willow), sliced a few and stitched them together.

Next, I made a table of stars in Word and printed them on one of my favorite
fusible applique tools, HeatnBond ...

A Day in the Life from Cat Patches

Now that the [mostly] good weather has arrived here at the Three Cats Ranch, mornings start pretty much the same every day...with kitties sitting at the glass door saying, "Open, open, open." We don't let them out until there's some activity outdoors.


They've worked out a pretty good routine for themselves. Out the door around 8:00 a.m., in for the day at around 1:30 p.m. They could stay out longer, but they usually come in for naps. After that, we shut the door. We don't want them heading out again after ...

Irish Stars Update: 181 of 361 from Wedding Dress Blue

Records indicate that I started my Irish Stars quilt about June 1, 2017.

My goal is to finish the second half in the next year and have the entire quilt complete before I turn 52–October 2019.  Realistic?

Back to Piecing the Blocks from Quilt Obsession

I spent hours laying out the stars for the brown & blue and the Tranquil Garden tops until I was happy with their placement. I ended up using the bed as my design wall – but with the door shut so no little paws were helping. Now that that’s done, I’m sewing them in order.

B&B Block 3-1 IMG_1724wtmk

This will be the top block in row 3 of the brown & blue Silent Garden quilt top.

Jelly Jubilee from ... Cat Patches

Our weather has turned so nice and warm the last couple of days. It certainly increases our energy levels here at the Three Cats Ranch. Mike and I have been busy doing our own little things. At the end of the day yesterday, we were talking about how busy we've both been. We agreed that it was the good kind of busy because it isn't that we have a lot to do...it is that we both want to do a lot, and there are never enough hours in the day.

As for me, my day started with ...

Wish Upon A Star : Lucky Star Quilt is Finally A Finished Quilt from Sewing Under the Little Mushroom Cap

I haven’t been in a blog hop for quite some time already, and I thought it’d be fun to start joining again. Today is my turn for the WISH UPON A STAR Blog Hop, hosted by lovely Carol.

I love finding new blogs and connecting to other quilt bloggers around the world. Besides, I always think that blog hops is a great way for accountability to make sure I get something done!

And to prove that, I did get something done! This project has been an unfinished object (UFO) for so long, I am glad it is finally ...
