As far as sewing, that is pretty much what I’ve accomplished the past month. This is the block and it took over an hour to make it but still…
The block is called Modern Star and Pinwheel and is a FREE pattern right now on Judy Martin’s website. Check it out here.
My small quilting group is doing a 12” block challenge for next summer’s Backyard Quilt Show and this block may or may not be used in a quilt for that challenge. So far, I don’t have a plan but the quilt show will be ...
I am sure you have seen or made this one.....published in McCall's Quilting in 2007 by the Gingham Girls. I waded through my bin of pre-cuts and decided to make a few adjustments to their original pattern.
I chose to use 5" squares with a 1 1/2" inset strip. My unfinished square when trimmed is ...
I went to lunch ...
We are having more fun this ... read more
Here goes nothing! I’ve been randomly piecing this thing together all night. I’ve also been watching the Paradise on Netflix, so it was a long and interesting night. I hope everyone likes it! My class meets next Wednesday so I still need to do a little more work on it! Wish me luck!

I had time last night to work on getting some of the rows made on the basket weave quilt. I decided to make the rows and sew them together as I get them made instead of making all the rows and then sewing them together. Here’s what I have so far.
I’m also playing around with a piece if Florida fabric. Not to sure about this…….not exactly coming out like I planned, but ...read more
Sharon and I were in Ark City, Kansas last week (Sunday and Monday) for a program and workshop. We had a great time with wonderful ladies! I took my blue scrap quilt along and worked on the binding in the car and
whenever I could find a few minutes here and there. I finally finished it after getting home.
Another quilt made from my stash! Yea! I have several more ready to cut and I came up with a few more ideas today. My stash is dwindling and I am happy!!! I hope I can continue. :) This is fun seeing ...read more
Woo HOO! I sewed the last of the squares together today and now it’s assembly time!! 181 squares!
They don’t look like much stacked up in a pile.
More to come later……
15 Minutes of Play Scrap Quilt
So I told you about the 15 Minutes of Play book, right? I LOVE the quilt that came from “yeah, just sew your scraps together however you want.” It is such a liberating process.
I opted to sew all my scraps together in color families. I made the finished “Made-Fabric” pieces any size. Really, whatever size turned out is what size it is. So, here’s how the pieces fell together.
Now I just need to plan an arrangement.
Here’s something funny: In the book Victoria Findlay-Wolfe talks about what you’ll see ...read more
I was up late last night working on this
tedious beautiful quilt. I love doing crazy quilts, but they take so long to do! I mean, I can work around the puckering of the fabric because of the decorative stitches, but the rub is doing all of these decorative stitches. It is a nice way to use up some thread I didn’t have enough of to do whole projects with at least. At least it is great for mindless sewing work to watch TV during! Speaking of TV, did anyone watch this week’s True Blood??? I think it ...
I am getting to this link up late. My local quilt guild had their bi-annual quilt show this year. There was pre- quilt show work to be done as well as during and finishing up. Then I had a bonus - three of my sisters showed up to surprise me for the weekend! They came to the show so I am sharing a bit of that. Only one sister new about my "So Blue" quilt - a portrait of my Mother as aread more
I’m spending my day off working on my crazy quilt for the class I am teaching. I’m currently adding in different strips of color to add size and to add some variety of the rainbow to it. I’m really glad I added that gold to it, it really makes it pop quite a bit! Now to cut and sew in all different directions for the rest of the afternoon! Wish me luck! Maybe I’ll take a break an make a throw pillow at some point!

Design wall Monday snuck up in me again. Those 3 day weekends always seem to go so fast! I have still been working on Texas for the Texas Quilt Along. The entire West half of the state is done and the final quadrant, south-central Texas, is begun.
The first city block for this last quadrant will be posted tomorrow.
I have also been working on more crumb blocks. These are the crumbs that weren't big enough to make the cut for the Crumb Jar Nines quilt. Not sure what I'll do with these yet... I'm just enjoying ... read more
When I was writing the post for yesterday’s quilt, another variation of sashed squares, I thought of that old knock-knock joke:
Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?
Well orange you glad I’m not doing sashed squares today? Today’s easy baby quilt is PINWHEELS!
Here’s how to make it!
One charm pack of (42) 5” squares
2-1/8 yards of background fabric (white in my quilt). This is for blocks, sashing, outer ...
Happy 4th of July. Hope all of you in the US are enjoying the holiday. Here in northeast Wisconsin we have a perfect summer day—temperatures in the mid 70’s and low humidity. It doesn’t get better than that!
Today’s baby quilt is one more variation of sashed squares. The blocks look like they have drop shadows. As with the other quilts in this series, it’s a quick one to put together.
One charm pack of (42) 5” squares
One yard of background fabric (white in my quilt)
5/8 yard of accent fabric ...
I had lunch with my friend the other day and she was telling me how much fun she was having sewing in the evenings after work. She just finished a big project that she had designed. All applique and all very personal for the people she was giving it to.
It was a lot of work. And a lot of concentration. She could only work on it during the weekends as after a long day at work her brain just couldn't make decisions on what to do next. But now she was working on another quilt.
She is having ...
I sewed the strips together that I cut last week. I put what would fit up on the wall today to take the picture.
I decide to make 25 blocks for this quilt. The rest of the blocks didn’t fit on the wall.
I’m not going to frame the blocks like I did on the purple one.
I’m planning to put a 1″ sashing between the blocks. Hopefully that will happen this week.
Meanwhile, my 10 minute a day squares are getting made too. I figured up that I will need 181 squares. I have 100 made ...read more
