 Please click on the title to read the full post.

Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers!

 

So last week I began a new piece of the wisteria blooming at Biltmore.  Then I had the idea- why don’t we do a sort of quilt along?

I am documenting all the steps to creating your one of a kind landscape art quilt as I make mine.  And you can follow along and make yours as we go!   See last week’s post if you want to see how I started.  So here’s my picture:

Knitting Inspirations from All Things Family Friendly

imageimage

I am a baby boomer baby. Growing up in the 50’s I always remember my Mom carrying her knitting bag. It was probably more important to her than her purse. It went everywhere with her. Whenever she had an idle moment, out would come the yarn and needles. I always could tell the difference between a handmade sweater and a “store bought” one. We would drive up to Aspen, CO to their Scandinavian shop to look for buttons and yarn. Scottsdale, Arizona also had such a shop that Mom loved. Grand Junction had one knit shop during the 50 ...

Retreat Charity Quilt Finish from Heart Desire Creations

IMG_0897[1]

At the April Quilt & Sew-In, everyone made two hourglass blocks. Every retreater is given fabric and instructions and making the blocks is totally optional. Each person made two blocks and I was able to put together a small child size quilt  and this lap size quilt. The colors are fun and bright and I think it will bring much joy to the recipient.

This quilt will be sent on to the ALS Hopes and Dreams Quilt Challenge sponsored by Quilters’ Dream Batting. They have sponsored the Quilt & Sew-In each year and am so pleased we can be a part of ...

Charity Finished from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Last week I really pushed myself to finish bindings so I could get my stash numbers back in line.  Lots of time in the car helped and I was able to get this one finished on the way to the airport but I had to wait until I got home to take the picture.

The pattern is called Charity by Villa Rosa Designs and it is made with cozy flannel stash fabric.  I just picked a prints that would coordinate with that cute little Debbie Mumm Christmas print.  Normally, I don’t do inner borders weird like this one, but ...

IT HAPPENED: The Shirts are De-boned from Jo's Country Junction

image_pdfimage_print

Remember my want to get all of shirts de-boned while I was on quarantine….It was a valiant try but I fell slightly short.  I have continued on with working on them doing as much I could as time allowed.  I wanted to conquer them.

Well I was getting close over Mother’s Day weekend.  Our son Buck was home and as we were chatting in the kitchen I was working on them.  I looked down into the basket and realized that I was in striking distance.  Then the next day Kelli came home and asked if there was anything ...

My Camera is Becoming Obsolete from Jo's Country Junction

image_pdfimage_print

Every month I team up with U.S. Cellular and share a little about my Samsung Galaxy S6 Smart Phone.  This is one of those posts.  If you have a kid or grand kid with a smart phone you might want to check out this parent child agreement on cell phone use.   You can find that here.

You read that right…My camera is becoming obsolete.  I really don’t use it much anymore.  I’ve pretty much converted to using my smart phone for all of my picture taking..and I take a lot of pictures.  There are so ...

Glorious Hexagons: 56, 57, 58, 59 and 60 from Hexy Lady

Here are the next five Glorious Hexagons.

#35 Sharon

This Sharon uses the panel fabric for the outer circles. This is a modified Sharon because the central shapes are composes of a large hexagon with equilateral triangles in place of the usual diamond shapes. This block actually has a name of it’s own. It is a #29 Bev. I didn’t know that at the time I made the block and I shared it on Facebook under the name Sharon. Now I feel no need to change the name as I share it here. There are a few blocks ...

Chicago from Ruth Powers Blog

We spent last week in Chicago and I only had my phone so didn’t even try to post. I decided that it would be a good time to put my laptop in for a tuneup while we were gone, and it does seem to be running faster.

One day we went to the Art Institute of Chicago. There were no quilts, but I found an appliqued Samuri vest

AppliqueSamuriVest

and a weaving which could inspire a half-square triangle quilt.

It was fun to see the original paintings of some of the works we studied in Art History, such as Seurat ...

Books on Monday – Simple Christmas Tidings from 120 Blocks

I realize the postings have been few and far between lately (I had several books on hold at my local library that all came in at the same time so nothing quilty has been happening around here lately as I read furiously to meet deadlines) but it is time for a Books on Monday post …

Slow Sunday Stitching from On The Go Quilting

Late morning breakfast, a walk through a 75% off yard sale and the afternoon for stitching.  Just about a perfect resting day.

There was a sign on the way home from breakfast today that indicated the Trading Post was having a 75% off sale so we decided to go over to check it out.  I really didn’t see much; it’s mostly old tools, old dishes and some old books.  However, there was room where everything on the tables was free.  I looked around quickly and found a small box full of scraps of fabric, old fabric.  I took ...

I Am Still Here from Wedding Dress Blue

It has been over a month since my last quilty post.

Some of you know I am a teacher (middle school English) and this time of the year is very busy and fast-paced.  We survived the school play (both Sparkle Jane and Young Son had main roles), ballet is full-speed ahead, Husband is starting a new job tomorrow, and Young Son is set to graduate high school on Friday.  Other than that, not a lot is happening (*whew!*), and that includes sewing.  However, classes end this Friday and I should be back to a calmer, and more quilty, daily schedule ...

Stash Report from Jo's Country Junction

image_pdfimage_print

Hubby doesn’t care a drop about what I buy or don’t buy…he does tease me about boxes that come in the mail though.  No matter what comes he’ll say, “Let me guess, you didn’t order anything…right?!”

I’ll admit that I do order lots from Amazon…it’s convenient especially when we live an half hour from a Wal-Mart and an hour from any other store that’s bigger but typically the packages that come are from blog readers.  This day’s package was no exception…..

Goodies from the Vestal’s in Florida.  There ...
