Welcome, Spring! from From the Strawberry Patch...

After a few false starts it looks as though spring is here to stay! These white Iris are from my childhood home, I dug up a little clump of them before my parents sold the home and moved twelve years ago. Since then, I have divided them at least four times, our daughter in the Capital City has a clump of her own (which may have also been divided by now)! These Iris were added more recently,

Day By Day, Stitch By Stitch from From the Strawberry Patch...

Time moves on... day by day, stitch by stitch. Life after buying the new church has taken on a more familiar rhythm again this week. I finished up the quilting on the second of two Life is Good T-shirt quilts for a church member in memory of his dear wife. This has been passed on to Quiltkeemosabe herself who will bind and label them for presentation to his daughters. The days are warming up

Easter from From the Strawberry Patch...

Another Easter has come and gone; and, in this week following, spring has got a full grip on the weather, the pollen has begun to descend in thick, yellow waves, covering everything in its sight. We celebrated Jesus' Resurrection with worship in our new church last Sunday; there was a large crowd (highest attendance ever for our little mission church) of faithful folks in attendance, it was an

What's Happening? from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

 

Spring has officially hit the state of Maryland, and I (Teri) have been enjoying some beautiful long walks, enjoying all the flowers in bloom. There is nothing that inspires us more than nature, with all its bountiful beauty. I guess it's no surprise that we stitch so many flowers!

Even as the world is starting to slowly open up again, at least here in the US, we are staying quite busy with new designs for online stitching programs. Participating in several stitch alongs this past year has been such a fun way to "meet" new stitching friends, while we ...

March Madness Drive from From My Carolina Home

Cabin fever has caught hold in all our car clubs, and with the warming weather, more drives are happening. The first one of the season for the British Car Club had us meeting in west Asheville for a drive north. That’s our red MINI on the left. It counts as British for this club, and also for the two MINI clubs we are in.

It didn’t take very long for more friends to arrive and we had eight cars ready to roll.

A few minutes later and we were up to 12. Seems like a lot of us ...

Inspired by the color green from The Crafty Quilter

One of my favorite colors is green. I love its versatility and how beautifully it shows up in nature. It also shows up in my fabric stash – alot! And here we are in March where green is everywhere (thank you St. Paddy) and Spring is just around the corner. It’s so easy to be inspired by the color green!

I am inspired by the color green right now!  I have lots of images and projects to share that will inspire you too!

Over the years, I have posted many projects using the color green. Usually there are other colors included – they all play so well together! And there’s always something in nature (and my backyard) that inspires the combination. Tip: If ...

Springtime Table and More from From My Carolina Home

Spring is still almost a week away, officially, but the warmer days seem to be here. Time for a springtime table to brighten up meal time. I looked in my stash of quilts and realized I have very little in the way of square table toppers. Mostly I make longer runners for the larger table in the dining room. So, I found a pretty fat quarter in a light green with a yellow floral print, folded the edges under and pressed it. It will just have to do. I put it in the center of the table and began pulling ...

Some Colorful Joy from Heart Desire Creations

Recently I learned of an acquaintance that has an unpleasant health condition. I also learned that a friend would be visiting with her and I wanted to send along a quilt of comfort. I went to my closet of flimsies and found a bright, cheerful and colorful top that would be perfect. I also had the best bright green fleece for the backing.

Several years ago I cut this bright colorful collection on my die cutting machine using a large triangle die. It was quick piecing and the best way to showcase these large prints. Having not looked at this ...

Elephants On The Move... from From the Strawberry Patch...

I've got the entire top cut out and all the pieces labeled for "Elephant Parade" by Sew Fresh Quilts. This one has been on my "to do" list for a very long time, it's for Lynnleigh. Guess what her favorite animal is. I'm adding more baby elephants and omitting the flowers, bird, turtle and frog. Her current favorite colors are coral and teal, that's how it will be bordered. I'm off this weekend to

Pumping Up The Volume from From the Strawberry Patch...

After getting the Star Flower quilt all quilted and the binding attached, I needed a bit more color saturation to brighten the day. I dug deep into my bin of 4.5" square scraps and after a quick pass through the die cutter I set to work on this scrappy hexagon quilt. It's vibrant and fun. I have half of it pieced as it's shown here on the design wall. It will measure 56" X 72" at completion,
