From idea to refashioned tote bag... from in the fold

I have a couple of tote bags that need a refresh and an idea of chevrons or hexies done in raw edge applique popped in to my head.   



And so this past Sunday, rather than work on a quilt that I would like to finish for a show, I started this...(note the huge logo on an otherwise great tote) Now, I am not opposed to shopping at said store, but I don't like being a walking advertisement for anybody.  Secondly, the day I used the bag to haul my daughter's girl scout cookies around the neighborhood to ...

Sewing Some New Skirts from Tea Rose Home

One day, Rachel and I took inventory of her closet and found out that she out grew many clothes. Not so much of the tops, but pretty much all the skirts that I made for her a couple years back. I have been looking for some skirts to buy at the stores, but they were all too short for my (and her) liking. I promised her that I would sew some skirts for her and that's what I started doing. In the previous week, I cleaned out my fabric closet, so I had a pretty good idea of what ...

Tetons...well, one anyway from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I have so very little to show for my week. In fact, I have nothing in the way of sewing this week. Closing down the school year. Packing up my class room for the last time. Two granddaughters graduating (high school and middle school). A family reunion, of sorts. A new great-grandie. 

Whew! It's no wonder I am exhausted. And I haven't even stepped into the studio. Besides, the machine is in the camper.



So here is a pincushion I made months ago. Why I never posted it is, well because, I'm not sure what to make ...

Article continues below these Amazon Goodies

When I design quilt patterns I put my heart and soul into the design. For my fabric line Sunday Drive, I designed 'Take the Roundabout' in my signature multiple size block format. You've been doing my solstice, so you have an idea of how much fun it is do multi size blocks!

altered mens pajama pants to fit women from edeenut

My teenage son is picky when it comes to his clothes. There was a pair of pajama pants I bought him for Christmas and he stopped wearing them so he gave them to me. I have gotten quite a few clothes from him and I love it!
I enjoyed wearing them for a few weeks. I thought I would like the side pockets, but ended up not liking the extra fabric bunch. Also, the rise was too tall for my liking and I ended up rolling the waist band once. One thing I did love about them was the wide ...

It’s Okay To Grab The Seam Ripper from Quilty Therapy

If you don’t like where a project is going, it’s okay to grab the seam ripper and start over.  It’s a lesson I had to remind myself of yesterday.  Sunday afternoon I started quilting on the Kona HST quilt in my WIP pile.

I had been contemplating the quilting design and decided to just move forward with it.   Starting with an offset triangle and following that design around.  All was well until I had to change the bobbin.  Something wasn’t right after I changed it.  New thread?  The tension is off?  Fingers crossed it isn’t ...

Quilt Retreat! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

One weekend not so long ago I went to Fountainbleu State Park to meet some quilty friends for a craft retreat. I met Erika and Kelly through the La. Traveling Quilt bee two years ago. We keep in touch through Facebook and have met for our own mini-retreat here in my studio.  Last year we planned this retreat but I decided to opt out since it was so close to EOC testing. This year, however, I chose to attend. Oh wow! I had such fun! Loved the weekend!


Took portraits this morning at this beautiful spot. I love Louisiana.   ***Fontainbleu State Park, across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans:

These photos are from Pinterest, so they come from a variety of ...
