Workshops and a cancelled Retreat from Janet Ann Creations

February 2018 was a blur for me...
with the passing of my mom ... things seemed to just slow down
even though my schedule had been filled with retreats and workshops...

needing to find my way and my purpose again...
quilting helps.

The Dresden Neighborhood Workshop
put on by my guild ~ SCQG was a blast!
Michelle Banton of Little Pup Designs
was a fabulous instructor!
Using Kim Lapacek's pattern, Mistyfuse and a Dresden ruler
workshop participants created their very own Dresden Neighborhoods! 


Using a cute house fabric for the background and
Cherrywood fabrics for the houses -
This was as far ...

March 1-10! from Jan's Quilts

May your bobbins always be full,

2018 Temperature Quilt from Jan's Quilts



I managed one more month of the 2018 Temperature Quilt.  Above are January and February.  For both months I did a marathon-get-it-done session.  This month isn't looking great, but I think I'll have time this week to start the March blocks.

Wish me luck.
May your bobbins always be full,

Snowy Wednesday from Pinkadot Quilts


There has not been a lot of sewing going on. The storm that hit us last week left us without power for 4 days! Luckily we do have a generator so we had heat, water and could run the refrigerators. I still was conservative with the power as it does not do the entire house. Definitely no sewing, heat is more important!
It was a good time to start this puzzle and kept me entertained for hours! It is a hard one!


Barb got me hooked on another one and now I am obsessed!


This little generator is worth it ...

New Quilt -- A Temperature Quilt from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

Last time we talked, several of you gave me permission to start a new quilt!!
Thanks!!
Okay, it was already started and it's a Temperature Quilt!!
Seems perfect for someone who spends some of every day outside birding, walking or stitching in my garden -- but before I share that with you . . . . check this out!
We are having a thaw this week.  The rivers are racing and the birds are very active -- so a walk at one of my favorite birding spots was in order.  One of the perks of winter walking is all the deer trails that are exposed ...

Temperature Quilt from Jan's Quilts

Last year two of my IG friends made "Temperature Quilts".  I really liked the idea and decided to do my own this year.  January was very busy for me, so I got a late start and did all of the January units the last few days.  I'd already gathered my fabric; I decided to go with a mix of solids and prints.  I just had to find the time to make the flying geese.


I decided to make 3" x 6" flying geese; I'm going to end up with a very large quilt. 


If the temp was "normal ...

Tuesday Sewing from Pinkadot Quilts


So we can kind of say this was a commission! My daughter asked me to make this for my granddaughter's 1st birthday that is in less than a month. It is the biggest project I have tried and I learned lots of lessons.
I am going to frame it and they will hang it in her bedroom.


The annual Fun With Barb swap is in full swing. This year we are making 6" churn dashes. I think I am going to change the background though everyone else said they liked it. I want it a bit more quiet. The ...

Snowballs! from Pinkadot Quilts


It is snowing and freezing here today. I love scrap quilts and have lots of scraps so I have decided to work on using some of them up.


So in honor of all the snow today I made some snowballs. They really are cute and will be a fun and easy project to make here and there.


I struggle with contrast. I have had this Color Tool for a long time. The red thing is called a Ruby Beholder. You look through it to see if you have enough contrast and it will jump out at you or blend in ...

January Cold from Pinkadot Quilts



My swap quilt is almost complete. I have to take out the papers, which is not fun but this is small so it won't take too long. I am not sure how I will quilt it. Any suggestions?


Have you heard of Temperature Quilts? You make a block a day of your choosing that reflects the high and low temperatures for the day. A lot of quilts I found were with flying geese blocks and it's a favorite of mine so I went with that one. You also can have the geese flying down for below freezing and ...
