From a Few Scraps from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 It doesn't take much to distract me.

One of my clients brought me a handful of scraps from a quilt she brought me to quilt for her.

Did I have a use for them?  What a silly question!



In no time at all, I created this fun tablerunner.

I pretty much kept the pieces the size she gave them to me.  



The colors in the horse fabric in the center is amazing.  I used a dark blue peppered cotton that I have been hoarding for quite some time to frame all those lovely fabrics.  

I love all those oranges ...

A little yellow and floral runner from Quilting & Learning

No matter how busy I get, I love to do something unexpected and fun. This week I made a runner for The Joyful Quilter's March TABLE SCRAPS Challenge. The themes were yellow/gold and floral. It was good to play with simple blocks and a thrill to free motion quilt (FMQ) it.

TABLE SCRAPS challenge

As you may know, I try not to get too involved in challenges because I have so much going on....but every once in a while, I let go of that guideline and go for it. Also, since I didn't tell anyone that ...

Two Finishes from Elsie Quilts

Finally finished two projects. This 'tree of life' is quilted now and ready to go back to our guild. I was given the blocks and told "make something from these" but it took me a long time to decide how to quilt it. It is about 72" square. I call it Almost Autumn.

This is a gift, but doubt the recipient is checking my blog so feel safe to post it. I saw similar patterns online but drafted my own versions to suit the amount of fabric I had. The place mats and table runner might only get used once ...

A UFO Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 I have said it in previous years, but truly, this year I am focused on finishing some old UFOs.

I am joining forces with a friend who has the same goal so we are supporting each other.



My project for February was to make something with these blocks.  I either needed to make more and make a quilt....




Or I initially thought about combining them with these old blocks into a wall hanging.


Once I thought about it, I decided to just turn these blocks into a large table runner.

When I started analyzing the project, there were a few ...

Twixmas? from From the Strawberry Patch...

A blog-reading friend sent me the link to another blogger  who recently had a most interesting post regarding Twixmas. The term was new to me, but once I read the post I understood fully why my friend had forwarded it to me. After that last post regarding the self-imposed "grace period" granted between Christmas and New Year's, I learned that, according to this afore-mentioned blogger, what I was

It's A Wrap! from From the Strawberry Patch...

And just like that, it would seem, another Christmas has come and gone... or has it? We're still in the Christmas season and these days following Christmas Day can be just as much of a gift as the day itself! In my "rush, rush, hurry, hurry" frame of mind during those days leading up to the 25th I had to back-burner a few things that I had really wanted, and fully intended, to get done before the

Island Batik December Challenge from Sew Preeti Quilts

 The guidelines for the Island Batik December Challenge were simple

  • Project Type: Any

  • Size: Minimum size 12” x12”

  • Any fabric 

  • Technique: English Paper Piecing



And here is my simple response. This cutesy little table runner finished at 12" by 52".

Paul, the model

I used Island Batik Neutral Yolk for background (and binding) and various Island Batik fabrics to create the hexie flowers. Neither too big nor too small, I was going to name it Goldilocks but then...Paul suggested that it was "Too Hexie for My Table" and the name stuck.

Did you notice the touch of whimsy? It ...

Dancing Daylilies from Sew Preeti Quilts

The story of this quilt began in September 2019.

Dancing Daylilies 70" by 90"


It was the long weekend of Labor Day and I was playing with scraps... Moda Scrap Bag scraps, to be precise. The fabric is by Corey Yoder. 


Scraps from Moda Scrap Bag 


Just piecing strips and making large blocks. I ended up with a flimsy of 50" square. Good enough for a large baby quilt. I set it aside and worked on quilts for the Socorro Foundation


Almost Flimsy


In October 2019, I traveled to India. I was tasked to convey a care package to Meetu ...
