Beauty and the Beast - Vitrine from Sew Preeti Quilts

Once upon a time before the great pandemic, I was at a fancy store admiring beautiful jewelry.  I have plenty of jewelry including some exquisite pieces from India. But the glittering stones beckoned to me.

Jewelry from India - Necklace, Earrings and Bangles

Only if I had all MY jewelry in a catalogue/showcase that I could admire every time temptation struck. 

This is how this quilt feels - my pretty and adorable fabrics, including low volume beauties in a transparent display case. Hence I have named it Vitrine, a fancy word for a glass display case :-)

New Finish!!!

I had made ...

Sunshine and Rainows from Podunk Pretties

Hello Quilting Friends!  I just wanted to pop in and give you an update on my current leaders and enders project.  Slowly but surely I'm finishing up the cornerstones and sashing.  


When most of us think of a leaders and enders project we think of a Bonnie Hunter quilt.  Bonnies quilts more often than not do not have one consistent fabric let alone two or three.  The idea to keep this a 100% leaders and enders quilt sounds like a good idea but I'm at the point of just get it done.  Learning to use the leaders and ...

Rainbows in the pines from The Academic Quilter

 Hi everyone, and happy week before Christmas! Are you feeling very merry? Thanks for all of the great holiday stories on the blog hop on my last post! I really enjoyed putting my feet up and reading about your families. After the year that we have had, no one could blame us for just sitting around eating cookies, drinking something warm, and telling happy stories for the next couple of weeks, could they?

Down in the sewing room, I have finished another repurposed project, just in time for a some nice photos in the snow. Yahoo! Here is the Rainbow ...

Strung from the trees from The Academic Quilter

 Hi everyone, and happy after-Thanksgiving! I hope you are having a really restful weekend following what was, for us, a very strange holiday. It was just us here, which was very, very different from what we usually have. I actually did my first 5K the first thing in the morning (see sweaty picture at the bottom of this post), then relaxed and cooked a small dinner for the two of us.We had turkey thighs (which are incredibly inexpensive), potatoes, gravy, and Zoomed with the family, and somehow we polished off a whole pie. I have no idea how that ...

Piece on Earth from Ann Quilts

Hello, everyone! 

I haven't posted here in well over a month....

All healthy, so no worries there, in case any of you noticed my absence and were worried.  The whole situation in which we find ourselves took over my attention and energy, and certainly my ability to express it all in words.  But I’ve been busy, and here’s what I’ve been doing.  It’s been a while, so this will be long!  Grab an iced tea (in my hemisphere anyway), and settle in.

— I haven’t been doing much quilt repair.  At first, I was too ...

Andra Tutto Bene from Sew Karen-ly Created...

Yesterday while sewing a stack of somewhat subdued colours into half-square triangles, I could hear a little voice whispering, " know there is a rainbow in the basket behind you."
I ignored it as long as I could, but somehow that basket ended up on my sewing table and sure enough...out spilled a rainbow...of Hoffman 1895 Bali watercolours.
The previous day, I had read a post on the Aurifil blog about a small wallhanging designed by Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill of  Whole Circle Studio.  The post says, "Andrà Tutto Bene (Everything Will Be Okay in English) was inspired ...

Bias Tape Appliqué from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello my fellow makers!

It has been a while since my last post, I missed so much connecting with you! To make a good come back I decided to co-design a wall art with my little one, Carlota. She loves to participate in my projects, and I love to keep her busy and motivated with creative tasks.

When she showed me her drawing of a rainbow that is also a sun to bring joy and happiness to our lives, I decided to use the bias tape appliqué technique to translate her idea into our quilty project. Today we will talk ...

Because Every Storm Runs Out Of Rain!! from Kitty and Me Designs

This is my latest in the Colorful Cats series of Cross Stitch patterns.  What do you think of Rainbow?

Available as printed pattern leaflets and as instant digital PDF downloads in my Etsy shop.  Or, ask your favorite needlework retail stores to stock my patterns!!

Spray the rainbow from Ibisco Quilt

Oggi mi sono cimentata in alcune prove che intendevo fare da settimane, ovvero da quando mi sono arrivati i colori spray per tessuto della Marabu.
Visto che volevo testare anche l'intensità dei colori, li ho usati tutti, disposti secondo l'arcobaleno.
In precedenza ho tinto tessuti con i colori batik, ma ero rimasta insoddisfatta dal tono un po' spento dei colori e soprattutto dall'aspetto delle fibre del cotone dopo la tintura a caldo: sembrano quasi cotte, e il tessuto ne risulta rigido e difficilmente lavorabile con la tecnica hawaiiana. Poi ho provato i Soleil della Pebeo, ma la ...
