Feathers from On The Go Quilting

I made my trip to JoAnn Fabrics and was able to get the fusible interfacing I needed for the stole and the gifts I’m making for Retreat.  I also was able to get the last of their Kona White fabric.  I need the white for the Feathers I’m making for our September Swap on Threadbias.

Our swap is to make five feathers and put them in a baggie.  Each person can make as many baggies of feathers as they wish.   I cut out about 15-17 of each using this tutorial. Olivia Jane has taken Anna Maria Horner’s ...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us reach 25 years in business!

Bust of PALLAS from StitchinGirlMary's Blog

Duh on me!  My wonderfully  brilliant father pointed out to me that the correct quote from the Poe poem is …

Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door—

            Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

The funny thing is when I searched online under the “bust of Paris” LOTS of images came up.  Apparently it’s a common mistake (among the ill-informed).  The good news is my Dad caught it before the my pieces arrived at that show {yes, they all got in!} so I could correct the mistake and not appear to be too much of an ...

Around the World Blog Hop from Fabric Mom

I was invited by Pat @ Bell Creek Quilts to participate in a Around the World Blog Hop a few weeks back. I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into. I said, “Yes” none the less. I don’t really think I know how to say, “No”.

A few years ago I received an embroidery machine for Christmas. It has really put a dent in my quilt making. This picture is scripture that I embroidered in the center of a cancer quilt.

Facebook? from Wedding Dress Blue

I may be the last person in America without a Facebook account. There are many reasons for that, but, mostly, it involves time. As much as I like keeping up with all of you, the blog is enough for me. I would rather sew than social network. *guilty secret*

That said, I do love that some of you share your WeddingDressBlue creations with YOUR Facebook friends. And, today someone must have made a notable share. Would someone let me know who to thank for sending about 800 of you visiting my way? Thanks!

How to Rock a Teenager’s Quilt! from 3 am Inspiration

When we think teens, we think lots of noise and chaos. Here’s a great quilt for that favorite teenager! I’ve also made it for a little kids room because I think all kids come with noise attached! This quilt is called Visual Sound and gives the look of noise without adding to the commotion. looks great on a bed, as a lap quilt or use as a noise reduction piece on that teenager’s wall!

It’s Bargello!! But no looping/seam ripping nonsense attached! To ease you into this type of bargello, I played with precut 2-1 ...

Eye Candy from Inside Quilters Newsletter

Mary Kate and I spent most of last week (September 9-13) at Quilting LIVE in Atlanta, Georgia, where we had a lot of fun. We had three stage presentations: one on Quilters Newsletter’s 45 years of history, one on Pieced Backs and one on my PIGS (Projects in Grocery Sacks) and how I sort and select the ones I’ll finish and the ones I’ll recycle. I came home excited about one of my PIGS and as soon as I finish the two quilts that I have going at this moment, I’ll work on finishing it. Watch ...

Around the World Blog Hop from The Studiolo

I have an admission–I’ve been behind on reading blogs lately. Thus, I was delighted to find out about the Around the World Blog Hop (which I imagine all of you cool kids have already been following! :) from my friend and bee-mate Jan of The Colorful Fabriholic (you can see her post here.  Check it out–she has a book coming out from AQS, and you’ll get to say you knew her blog beforehand!). Essentially, this is a self-perpetuating blog hop that encourages us to build community and get to know each other through blog posts and tagging ...

Scrap Jar Star Block Tutorial from On The Go Quilting

When making my Scrap Jar block for the swap, I followed the directions the Queen for September wanted.  However, I have seen another tutorial that was almost exactly the same HERE.

I think the tutorial at A Little Bit Biased is very good and she does have photos so if you need detailed steps beyond what I’m showing here,  I’m going to leave it to you to jump over there and follow her tutorial.  What I will show you is the three different blocks you need that make up the Scrap Jar Block.  If you don’t want ...

September Sugar Club Block from On The Go Quilting

As you know if you’ve been reading for long, I’m participating in the 2014 Sugar Club Block Sampler Series.  All the blocks are designed by Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory.

September’s block is a three-color plus white background star block.   I looked through my yellows, blacks and greys to determine which colors I would use this month.  I remember when I looked at the mosaic of the completed blocks, I thought I needed more black in the blocks to come so a black was definitely one of the choices.


I love the “Fresh Eggs” fabric I’ve ...

They Grow Up Too Fast from Sew Grateful Quilts

I can’t believe that Greg’s eldest is old enough to play his first tackle football game. Time’s going too fast.


I decided which quilt project should be next. It’s on my machine and hopefully will be quilted tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Late Night Quilters 1000 Member Milestone and 5 Days of Give-A-Ways! from Late Night Quilter

About 4 months ago, I late-night texted a couple of my sewing soul sisters, Michelle and Kitty at Night Quilter, and tossed out a half-baked idea I’d been kicking around.

I’d been wanting to connect with other people like me, who love sewing and quilting immensely, but are often forced to sew into the wee hours of the morning due to all their other life commitments.  Facebook has lots of quilting groups that work well, but I just didn’t feel comfortable sharing in most of them.

There’s Modern Quilting…. but there’s a little problem there ...

The Bathroom Goes WHERE??? from Jo's Country Junction


Well Wednesday I had a packed day.  I had to go pick up Kelli’s dog, get things packed and ready for our trip to Kansas City and work on book rewrites with Kelli.  It was a full day.  Then at 8 am I got a call from the carpenter saying he knew I would be leaving and if I could run in a finalized plan for the upstairs layout, he’d appreciate it.  WHAT???

We didn’t have a finalized lay out.  Well..I guess I would drop everything and get it figured out.  Hubby and I had talked ...

Finished The Quilt Top For My Friend’s T-Shirt Quilt from Eric the Quilter

0913141641 0913141641a 0913141642 0913141642a 0913141642b

It took me long enough! I figured I had better do some work on it since the weather here is getting very cold, very quickly. It was 45 degrees when I woke up this morning! I know she probably wants her quilt soon, so I finished the top last night, and I might even pin it today! We shall see! Wish me luck!

Monarch Workshop from Sisboom

This past weekend I had the luxury of attending Monarch Workshop.  The workshop is run by an incredible group of women (including our very own Madeline) and aims to support “those who need a little push, those who are looking for a creative connection, and those who need inspiration to believe they can follow their dreams.”

The attendees were made up of a spectacular group of women whose occupations ranged from bloggers to therapists and real estate agents to artists.  The two day workshop consisted of non-stop activities (lessons, speakers, crafting) that catered to the mind, body and soul. It ...

Working On My Latest Crazy Quilt from Eric the Quilter

0912142032b 0912142032 0912142033 0912142032a 0912142033a

I finally got back to work on this beautiful piece of color atrocity! I just love it! It is just so bright and annoying! I’m not sure how large I am going to make it, but I’m thinking I’ll make it a larger size throw quilt. Maybe 70″ by 70″. Just a thought! I’ve still got to add a few more embellishments to it. Any idea what else I can add to it?

Electric Quilt, Art and Stitch and now the Silhouette Cameo from On Point Quilter

Last month I read through some of tutorials from the certified Art and Stitch instructors.  I was particularly intrigued by Ann Hubert's tutorial on using Art and Stitch to do applique on a longarm and numerous tutorials by Marjorie Busby on the use of electronic cutting tools, Art and Stitch and embroidery machines.

I decided that I really "needed" an electronic cutting tool and after reviewing some reviews (I believe also done by Marjorie), I decided on the Silhouette Cameo. 
I ordered my Cameo, loaded their free software, and began immersing myself in You Tube videos on the software ...
