An Interview with Alex Anderson from Terificreations's Weblog

Often the work we do is a gift, in part for the work, in part for the people we meet along the way. People who set the tone of engaging quilters to explore the work they do, showing us options for that exploring. As a quilter, like all of us, she leads by example in… Continue reading An Interview with Alex Anderson

Clearing my Head from Terificreations's Weblog

My sewing room hasn’t been functioning well for a little while. A non-functioning sewing room isn’t a good place for any quilter. We want so much to be in a space that simply doesn’t work. While on a vid call a few weeks ago I showed part of it, stuff I’d been working on and… Continue reading Clearing my Head

Has anyone ever written an article encouraging quilters to do math? from Terificreations's Weblog

Please hang with me here as I’m going to share of my own failures in Junior High and High School, the moments where the dime dropped, and how I can now do a lot of quilty math in my head. I’ll begin with breaking down the question and clarifying my intent. While I failed math… Continue reading Has anyone ever written an article encouraging quilters to do math?

A Most Memorable Date from Terificreations's Weblog

Beauty Beyond Bones is one of my fave non-quilt related blogs. Caralyn speaks honestly about anorexia, recovery from anorexia, and more. In the linked blog post she’s speaking of a trip to Spain to travel the Camino de Santiago. Her description of the whole-head, clear eyed fish served for lunch in their hotel. This reminded… Continue reading A Most Memorable Date

Attending Quilt Market: Why I Am from Terificreations's Weblog

Why I KNOW it’s Important Attending Quilt Market with Generation Q Magazine in May 2014 is by far, one of the highlights of my quilting career. Meeting, and getting to know quilters and quilt pros through blogs, and on social media is one thing, meeting them in person however is another. It is that meeting… Continue reading Attending Quilt Market: Why I Am

From a Retreat to You from Terificreations's Weblog

I spent last weekend at a retreat, not quilt related, but one that seriously bolstered my commitment to building up the Quilting Community. In one of the talks we heard a saying from Trinidad that goes something like, “It is not my business what you think of me”. Weirdly both my pens and phone were… Continue reading From a Retreat to You

On Second Chances from Terificreations's Weblog

Quilting This Week from Terificreations's Weblog

A Name and a Purpose is taking shape and form.  Meet “Lenny” in process. The overall look will change over time as the overall idea takes shape. Thread spools sit next to the machine excitedly waving for attention at each thread change. Sometimes they get picked, sometimes I head to the drawer for another color. They’ll… Continue reading Quilting This Week

Trite & Truth from Terificreations's Weblog

The spring of 2016 seems a lifetime ago.  More than one thing bothered me about the original headline: Not Your Grandma’s Quilt: Just a couple of years before I’d learned that my Nana (Grandma’s mom) quilted for other people. As the sentimental one the opportunity to have one of those quilts Patchwork Blankets: so many… Continue reading Trite & Truth

Moon Over Manhattan, a bit O’humor from Terificreations's Weblog

  Oh Little Miss Sassy Pants how I love you. The story of birthing you came to mind this afternoon when someone mentioned that the Quilt National submission entry is September 5.

A Little Sparkle in Your Day from Terificreations's Weblog

Sultry befits the feel of the day; while hazy, hot, and humid are apt descriptors, sultry has a southern, slow feel. On a sultry July afternoon I ventured into the City for the Women’s Jewelry Association Annual Awards Gala (July 2017) where quilter and artist MJ Kinman exhibited her work. MJ’s work came to my… Continue reading A Little Sparkle in Your Day

You know I think a lot, you’ve seen that in my quilts. I submitted a Sample Chapter and am still thinking about things that need to be in that chapter.
