And Sew It Goes from From the Strawberry Patch...

I've finished the quilting on this little one, "Sister Bear"; I have the binding all ready to apply, and wouldn't you know it, it's a batik and there's enough left over to make more masks! Yay! This is the batch from last week, thirteen adult sized and one child's mask; they've already been distributed to their new families and I have nine all ready to go this week! I thought that my batiks were

Summer Tablescape for 2 from From My Carolina Home

It is the beginning of a holiday weekend, but it just doesn’t seem like a festive time with so many events canceled.  This weekend should be a riot of gardening in our downtown area with Garden Jubilee on Saturday and Sunday, but that is now moved to the individual garden centers.  This just isn’t the same as a festival.  It is hard to be excited when this weekend will be spent just like most every other day for the past two months. While I am not in a mood for patriotic festivities, I do think changing the table ...

Summer Is Done from The Snarky Quilter

I realize the title makes me sound as if I’ve been seriously out of touch with reality, but I’m talking about my Nova Scotia tidal marsh landscape series. The fourth one, summer, is close to completion, some five years after … Continue reading

I'm Back!! from Quilting Solutions

Too busy to sew, too busy to write.  I have had a wild several months, but have finally returned to my needle and threads.  It has been strange not to sew, but I have not been idle.

Our summer panned out as follows:
10 days in June traveling to and from Southern CA for the wedding of our granddaughter.

Little Wild Horse Canyon, UT
10 days to get things done at home, mostly fertilize the iris and clean house.

Beautiful Times from Beauty for Ashes


 This is a quick update on the grandkids....though it is very picture heavy!
Several months ago, I am sad to say, Jessica and Allie left the family. Divorce is ugly, though I will say, it was not as sad as when Rachel and Bud divorced. A mama knows when things are not right and, though Jess is a beautiful girl, she is a girl that needs freedom to have open relationships. My son and grandkids are flourishing, like never before! The bonus was, I was able to keep TJ and Emerson for a couple of weeks over the summer ...

Quilt it Modern Blog Tour from Trillium Design

Welcome Modern Quilters!  Today is my day on the Riley Blake Quilt-it Modern blog tour.  



When Riley Blake asked if I had an idea for using their Confetti Cottons solids with Crayola colors I knew immediately what I wanted to make.  Solids are such a huge part of Modern Quilting and I wanted to create a project that was fun, easy, and screamed summer! What is more iconic in summer than a VW Camper Van?! 



So I created a pattern with a couple of options for you. The Beach Bus block is a foundation pieced pattern that can be made ...
