Who's Under That Hat? from From the Strawberry Patch...

If you were playing along with the teaser from my last post, and you guessed a snowman, you were right! I needed a new sewing room door banner after taking Santa down last week. I saw this pattern on Country Threads website and knew it was just the thing! He measures 22" X 51" and is just the right size to fill the now empty space on the door. I have a series of door quilts that cycle through the

Hello Santa, Train Ride, and a little stitching from Romany Quilting

Santa and his Elf friend came calling while we were at Pauanui, weren’t we lucky he knew just where to find us.  Guess the pair of us had been very well behaved this year as our names were called up to go and sit on Santa’s knee.  Poor Santa, we didn’t really want to cause him an injury, so just gave him a cuddle instead.

So nice to see you, Santa

I had a mishap in the caravan when we first arrived, tripping and falling and giving my jaw a great whack.  So spent the rally sporting ...

Bearded Santa Paper-Pieced Quilted wall hanging from Wisonsin Quilting

Most of the squares are just 2-1/2″ squares with scattered paper piecing. You’ll be piecing columns as shown at right above.

Hello everyone!  It's time to announce the winners of the beautiful Santa Claus and Snowman quilt panels from the kind folks at Quilt Girls!

Post-Christmas Report from From the Strawberry Patch...

All of the super-secret stitching that went on around here before Christmas can finally be revealed. The family in the Capital City (3 out of 4 of them) wanted weighted blankets this year. In fact, Mason has been asking for one for MONTHS! He was very specific about what he wanted: snow camo (I didn't even know that this was a thing until I looked it up!), and he wanted his to be twin-sized (12

Huckleberry Railroad and Crossroads Village from Mama Spark's World

Last Friday hubby and I went up to Crossroads Village and  rode the Huckleberry Railroad Christmas train.   The village wasn't open when we arrived but we got a few photos on the train depot.  The train ride lasted about 40 minutes and went by lots of light displays.   There was a conductor to punch our tickets (like on Polar Express) as we boarded the train too.   A live Santa waved to us

CHRISTMAS SEWING from Q-BITS

Not a lot of Christmas sewing this year.  I did make a wool lap throw that turned out to be more work than I planned.  More on that after Christmas.

BUT,  Pinterest inspired me to try a simple Christmas sewing craft.  I didn't have a pattern so I made my own in the size I wanted.  It is basically a paper-pieced log cabin block, that is then cut diagonally to make into halves forming two bodies.  By adding hat fabrics to each diagonal cut forms two 7" squares.  Next, add batting and a backing; embellish with buttons; and fold ...

Christmas 2019: A TREE from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


I have not been doing much crafting. Or sewing. Or quilting. However, before leaving for Disney I made a couple of decorations for the tree. They are simply strings of large beads on a very thin wire. I added skinny ribbon to hang them on the branches. 

I really like them. They aren't showy like most ornaments, but they are pretty. I hung each one on a branch so that it dangles freely any time the tree moves, which is when the tykes are here. That's been a few days in the last two weeks.


At nap time ...

Let Your Light So Shine — Santa Paper Piecing design process from Wisonsin Quilting

Paper piecing lets me make sure that the quilts I produce have personal meaning. I love this paper pieced Santa $9 pattern (makes a 15″ x 15″ square, or if you add a bit more background, a quilted lined bag) because it started long ago with a “mid-century” candlestick that my mom brought out during the Christmas season.

My designs start with a sketch, playing with light and angles.

The pattern comes as a PDF download for you to print: 4 pages for the Santa and 4 more pages to cover the straps and wider belly of the bag if ...
