When you fall off the horse … from Stash Overflow

Get back on. No, I haven’t been horse riding. The horse I fell off of was keeping notes about what I’ve done in the studio and writing about them. Even though I wasn’t keeping notes all the time, I’ve got a lot to share.

4/23 – I sorted the scrap bin from the garage. Yay! All the scraps have now been sorted and I have an empty bin to put to use doing other things.

I also completed the assembly of the fussy cut animal quilt body (i.e., no borders yet). I have since ordered ...

A Quilter's Pin Dish from Selvage Blog


This pretty pressed glass dish may have started out in life as a candy, nut or pickle dish, 
but now it's a quilter's pin dish! I use mine for straight pins and basting pins. It adds an elegant touch to my quilt studio. I enjoy the way it sparkles in the sunlight. 
These make terrific gifts because quilting time is "me time."
See the new gifts category in my Etsy shop.

Making Do ~ Snuggly Wuggly Garment Sewing from Curlicue Creations

 Generally I don't do a lot of garment sewing.  I'm a much better quilter.  But...recently I was complaining to myself about how cold I am at night due to not having enough winter sleepwear, and I thought, "why don't I just sew something?"  Surely, I have a pattern for that somewhere...and some snuggly flannel fabric....and a sewing machine...and thread.  I found the above McCall's pattern in my sewing collection.  What are those models doing in the pic?  They look funny-cute with their hair up in rollers like they are having some kind ...

La Droguerie

A little trip to Paris last week. And for me, going to Paris means visiting and shopping at La Droguerie, my favorite haberdasher's shop. They have their own production and dyeing of great quality yarns. In this wonderful shop you can find quilting fabrics, Liberty fabrics, all sorts of threads, buttons, beads, ribbons... as well as catalogues with their great patterns for children or adults.

I remember when this shop was created in 1975, I was one of their first customer and so happy to find cashmere yarn, out of which I knitted a sweater for the one who ...

Nancy Sonneborn's Fabulous Fandango Quilt! from Selvage Blog

This stunning Fandango quilt is a recent finish by Nancy Sonneborn. What a beauty! Her blocks have a lot more pieces than mine. I love it! See the pattern for Fandango in the sidebar on the right.

This is what Nancy had to say about her quilt:
My fans started out a little wonky but improved as I kept at it.  They are all in the quilt and now,  I cannot tell which ones I questioned the execution of.  All the blocks are from multiple scraps I cut before beginning.  No blocks are identical but because I only used the ...

lakeside weekend . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I retreated this weekend.

Aaaaaaaaaaah. It was good. Cuz I mean I really retreated. Like, no cell service or WiFi. In a house on a lake. With quilt-minded friends. 
It was *real* good.

We arrived midday on Friday and set our stuff up and got straight down to business. Lunch. Wink, wink.
And then sewing. (Of course!)

We went out to dinner on Friday evening, but before we went to the restaurant, we stopped and met up with a local long-armer (who's also in our guild) and toured her beautiful quilting space.
I mean, wow, what a set-up.
And ...

fifth Saturday challenge from Ellyn's Place

One of our local quilt shops, Not Your Mama's Quilt Store, where I host the Boast and Toast every month, has begun a fifth Saturday Challenge. On the last fifth Saturday (which was in July) I decided to purchase the mystery bag and join in the fun for September. Everyone who joins gets the same materials in their bag, and you can use it to make whatever you want. Fun!

This particular bag had a half yard of three different fabrics. One was this delightful print:

The second piece was a burgundy solid. I decided to English Paper Piece ...
