People Are Finally Talking About It from Eric the Quilter

this kind

Finally, after several days, people have begun to speak out. I am thankful people are finally talking about the issue. We have to take a stand against bullying, and the only way to do so is acknowledge that this attack on people was bullying. The group of people who wrote these hateful and hurtful comments are now trying to say they are the victims and outing them as bullies, in itself, was bullying… Gaslighting much?

The only way to deal with bullies, is to stand up and say something! Silence is not the answer! I’ve seen quite a few ...

Lesson Learned: from Terificreations's Weblog

Don’t mess with Debby’s Chocolate Cake. This is by far the most important thing learned at Spring Quilt Market.   Needless to say I handed over the fork in my hand. Luckily I had a bandage in my purse. I was really wanting a Hello Kitty bandage, sadly none was readily available when the need … Continue reading Lesson Learned:

Thanks a LOT!! from Jo's Country Junction


I have the best blog readers…I know I say that all the time but it is totally true.  Recently in a stash report I told you all about how a friend of mine stopped over and gave me these.

I was not sure what to do with them and asked for ideas.

I was honestly at a loss of what to do with them all.

A blog reader suggested I take a look at the free quilt patterns at Wedding Dress Blue (find the link here)  There are lots of patterns there and several that would work.  Here are ...

My Weekend from Jo's Country Junction


It was a busy weekend around here….Birthdays, family, weddings and more.

Tuesday, the 16th, was Kalissa’s 22nd birthday.  Twenty second birthdays are usually not a big deal but they are when you are pregnant on your 21st birthday and can’t have a party then.  That was Kalissa last year at this time…pregnant.  So this year, Craig and friend threw her a party at the bar here in town.


It was a surprise.  All of my kiddos came home to join in the fun…even my Neighbor Girl came for a little bit.  We took her out ...

Design wall 5/22/17 string blocks from Always Quilts

Just a quick check in here for design wall Monday. I’m making another string quilt with the shadow look. I decided this time to make the strings rectangles instead of squares. 

I hope I can get this sewn together this week, so I can start the next string quilt I have planned. I’m addicted to these crazy strings!!

A NWI Modern Quilt Guild??? from Eric the Quilter


I was thinking about this the other day… How nice would it be to have a modern quilt guild in Northwest Indiana? Personally my quilts are kind of a mixed back of traditional and modern work, but it all would be welcome here. Anyone interested in helping? Let me know!

Home: where the coffee and internet are from Terificreations's Weblog

I’m home. Good coffee. Immediate, and good wifi. My suitcase and carry-on are over there waiting for me to take them down to the basement where my office, and laundry room are. But I’m watching the latest episode of Dr. Who and considering making more coffee. I’ve got the post Market groggy feeling, that this … Continue reading Home: where the coffee and internet are

Books on Monday – New York Beauties & Flying Geese from 120 Blocks

Books on Monday kind of snuck up on me this month, probably because this is the earliest date that can be the fourth Monday of the month. Sigh. Anyway, today we are looking at New York Beauties & Flying Geese: 10 Dramatic Quilts, 27 Pillows, 31 Block Patterns by Carl Hentsch. Yes, the link below is …

My Latest Art Quilt from Eric the Quilter

I’ve been off fighting the good fight the past couple days, and I decided to have some fun. I had this art quilt half way done, and decided to get back to work on it. I ironed on the applique, looked at it, and decided I didn’t want to do normal applique stitches. I’m just going to power over it, and run it over with thread. I’m going to pump so much thread into this quilt, it’s going to be ridiculous. Now I’m just debating, what colors and weights of thread to use… Hmmm ...

Suggestions Please! from Jo's Country Junction


I recently got two different emails from blog readers.  I’m hoping someone might be able to help me help them.

The first comes from Sandie in Kansas City, MO :  ”I read your blog and noticed that you are setting up lists of people who need quilting supplies for charity projects.  The posting that caught my eye was the lady that makes burial clothes for infants that don’t survive delivery.  I have boxes of lace that I used to use when I made doll clothes eons ago and would love to pass it on to her to use – and ...

Posh, Pet Portraits at NC Quilt Symposium from Roxane Lessa Fine Textile Art

 Please click on the title to read the full post.

Hi Everyone! Happy Spring!

North Carolina Quilt Symposium was a blast!  I have gone many years as a student, since Peace college is right in my town, but this was my first year as a TEACHER. Anyway, I taught my Posh, Pet Portrait class to 11 lovely ladies.  I think their pets turned out very lively, and engaging, don’t you? Please enjoy some pictures  of their work:

Hard at work!

Starting with a single piece of fabric on the Wafer light box, and using some colored pencils:

Today’s Quilt Block – Sexism from Eric the Quilter


Today’s block is Sexism! Sexism. Yes it is 2017 and we are still talking about sexism. Why? Why are we still talking about sexism? Shouldn’t this be a thing of the past right now? It should, but guess what, it’s really not! It’s still running rampant in our society, and as we’ve learned in the last couple of days, it’s here in the quilting world. I’m still working on the interview for my piece on sexism, and that probably won’t post until tomorrow, but I figured I would share this block with ...

Putting It All Together! from Simple Bird Applique

I am really happy with the steady progress I am making on this quilt.  All of the 9 blocks are stitched and washed.  Now I am going to show you how I trim the blocks to the correct size.  I always cut my backgrounds at least 2″ larger to allow for shrinkage due to all of those tiny stitches.  Before I trim the blocks, I press them really, really flat.  I place the square upside down on the ironing board and iron with steam.  My ironing board is very cushy, otherwise I would iron the blocks on a thick towel ...

Hands2Help Finish Week from On The Go Quilting

When you do a Sew Along, there is a schedule of what I consider the minimum you should do at each point.

There is a date on which you should have all your fabrics gathered, then a date when you should have everything cut out.  Next comes a progress date where you show how much you have done.  Last is the link up of finishes.

Today is the Link up of Finished Quilts for the Hands2Help Challenge.   Everyone (hopefully) participating will link up with Sarah over at her blog, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, to share the photos of their ...

“Made” from Dueling Threads

Today, I was a “Maker”.  I transformed and created using technology! In December, I heard that the Johnson County Library had access to 3D printers that people could use.  This was intriguing but wasn’t enough to get me up there to take a look.  However, when I browsed the website,  I discovered that the offering was much more than 3D printer access.  The Johnson County Central Resource Library has an area called the “Maker Space”, sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation and Black & Veatch and generous donations by Ewing Marion. IMG_1074  Anyone can reserve or walk-in to use equipment ranging from ...

Homophobia In Quilting – Let’s Talk About It from Eric the Quilter

Today is a special occasion. I have an interview with the man who posted the screen shots from, the now infamous, Conservative Quilters group. I have been following Frank as an artist for quite a while, but have only recently started to interact with him personally. I’m working on a set of 4 interviews with people who have been victims of Homophobia, Racism, Sexism, and Ignorance, as these are the themes for a quilt I’m working on for the Human Rights Campaign Dinner. This is our first interview. His name is Frank Palmer, a quilter from Dultuh, and ...

First Block – Homophobia from Eric the Quilter

The Way This Works:

I’m working on quilt for the HRC fund raising dinner in DC this fall. I decided, based upon recent events, (If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, click here) to make a wall hanging that tackles some of the issues we’ve been seeing come to light in, not only the quilting community, but the world in general. The four blocks will be a message about Homophobia, Racism, Sexism, and Ignorance. With each of the blocks that I post, I’ll be posting an interview I did with someone that has had ...
