ROUND ROBINS from Nestlings By Robin





First let me say that I have NEVER done or participated in a Round Robin for this reason, I am a Control Freak!  The idea of putting some fabric in a box and letting someone else make my quilt decisions for me and add other fabrics just makes my brain seize up. I have seen some lovely ones and some not so lovely ones too.  The idea intrigues me and seeing the reveals is inspiring but the need to be involved hasn't taken root.

Then I read somewhere about a controlled one and that made me want to do ...

Rain, rain go away from Art In Search

     The weather has been very wet. And cold. And I think we only had 2 dry days in a row for over a month. The trees are very slow to leaf out. I know many areas of the country have way more wet weather, but the grayness gets to you. Thankfully, the tulips have come up and opened. The cool weather has them hang around a bit longer. There is a limited blue sky time to photo them before the gray rolls in again. 
      Tulips are my favorite flower, but in big groups. I buy mine from White Flower Farm ...

Four Cities, Four Stars from Sew Preeti Quilts

Me: I will miss you.
Paul: Nah. You will be too busy having fun.
Me: I had so much travel last year. I wanted to take it easy this year.
Paul: But here you go again and to Europe this time.
Me: Last year I went to Canada, Mexico and India.
Paul: And which countries will you visit this year?
Me: Netherlands, Germany and Austria.
Paul: What if they run out of room in your passport for stamps?
Me: You are being silly.
Paul: Have fun.


And I had so much fun.  You know when you have an extraordinary experience ...

Flowers, Frogs and Finishes from Clever Chameleon

Pond Life quilt at Clever Chameleon with pink tulips colour scheme

Tulips while I quilt

My hubby and daughter bought pink tulips with the groceries last week. I hope you’ll agree, they were a very fine decoration to enjoy while I was working on the final stages of my Pond Life quilt. I was particularly struck by the perfect match of the green of the tulip leaves with the greens of my chosen fabrics. So in honour of well-matched flowers and a finished quilt we have the pastel version of the Pond Life colours this week.

Yes, you read that right. Pond Life is finished, and on the correct side ...

Pat sloan seasons book tulip 42

I love tulips and what is better than a BIG block tulip?

Several of them!

After making the purple one I spotted these at the store. We were going out of town or I would have bought them, and today they didn't have them again. But this is what I'm loving, purple tulips!

I think I'll be back to the store tomorrow to see if they have the purple tulips again.

Tulips and other Small Things that bring Joy from Nita Dances

Dear Vi, Yesterday was the official first day of spring.  The sun has crossed the celestial equator, moving northward. I celebrated the Vernal Equinox by going outside to inspect my flower beds. Were my tulips poking green tips up through … Continue reading

Travel Finds... from Nestlings By Robin


When we travel sometimes there is a tad bit of extra time to visit a shop or two and see if any treasures need to come home with me.
I am always on the lookout for old (older than these) blocks for my new "FABRIC COLLABORATIONS" Workshop.

These were found in Texas and the sweet Victorian carriage print was just too sweet to pass up.  With the 3 blocks, I can get 6 full squares that will be put with a different fabric and some applique:) Stay tuned!
When we went to Chicago this past summer, one of our stops ...

April in the Garden from From My Carolina Home

Finally, we have some warmer days!  It seems like winter just keeps hanging on, but Friday was warm and sunny, and Saturday was perfect for a drive.  It is supposed to rain all day today, so I am glad I got some pictures of the garden.  Flowers are starting to show their colors a bit more.  These daffodils were blooming earlier in the month and are all done now.  They didn’t all bloom, but the ones that did were lovely.

The redbud tree is coming out and the bees are all over the pretty pink flowers.

Tulips from Notes from Studio B


My kids sent me a large bouquet of tulips for my birthday to get me ready for our trip next month to the Skagit Valley Tulip festival in Washington State. My tulips here at home are about 6 - 8 inches tall already and will probably bloom while I'm gone. My daffodils are already blooming.

I found a new home for a few of my quilts that had been unearthed from the cupboard last week. These two that I made in the early 90's have found a good home.

Another friend took one that she plans on repurposing.

I ...

Tulips, and SEWING Went Wrong! from Elaine Adair Pieces



These are tulips, just peeking thru - early for western Nebraska but still, a moment of spring,  ahhhh, one of these days.

On the sewing front - today was a total disaster!  I am making small, flat zippered pouches.  I did my homework on Internet to find which method was the best, NOT the best plan because I have every method in my head and concentration is off.  DH always changes clocks early on a Saturday morning, which throws me more "off" than usual .  His fault, right?

I  used the lining for outside of the 3 layers, fused the batting on the ...

A new relationship... from Sew Preeti Quilts

In summer, I long for a chilly breeze; in winter I long for a fire.
At desert, I dream of the seven seas; at sea, it is the dry land I desire.
Since it is winter, I am naturally dreaming about Spring. Here is a little mini, I made - A trio of Tulips.

A Trio of Tulips

Garden Blooms

Blogland: It has been a while.
Me: This happens when one is on a honeymoon
Blogland: Honeymooning with Paul - You are such lovebirds.
Me: Not with Paul.
Blogland: Someone else? Does he know?
Me: Yes, he was the one who insisted ...

Some Old Patterns, Some New Patterns from Sew, Rip, Sew

I'm still doing donation quilts but just haven't posted any for a while.  


Two more quilts made with fruits and vegetables.
I mentioned before that fat quarters multiply in the cupboard because I still have more of these fabrics and will probably make more food quilts in the future.


I was looking for something in one of my storage towers and came across these flying geese blocks.  I don't know what I was saving them for so I sorted them because there were two different sizes and added a few more and made two quilts.
The binding ...
