Embracing Quirk, and a new class from Terificreations's Weblog

Happy Tuesday! Last spring I asked a trusted friend what her impressions were: confidence was the number one take away from that conversation. Honestly, I like that she picked up on that. It’s taken a lot of time to become confident at the machine, moving the quilt under the needle and watching the quilting motifs … Continue reading Embracing Quirk, and a new class

San Francisco Bustle {a finish} from Factotum of Arts

I am so happy to share this quilt, finally. San Francisco Bustle is this months MQG Quilt of the Month and the pattern is available to all members here.


Last May (2016), I posted a spark for the Quilt Design a Day Facebook group of a Cable car stop in San Francisco.

From this image, I designed this minimal abstract quilt design. The blues are from the cable car, the orange from the cones, the yellow from the road markings and the grey from the footpath corner. I will say the top grey box was a mistake and was out ...

It’s Quilt Retreat Week-end from On The Go Quilting

I’m off……

to Quilt Retreat!    What does that mean, you’re asking if you aren’t a quilter perhaps.

Quilt Retreat, for me, happens once a year in October.  Quilt Retreat for other quilters can happen any time during the year and maybe even multiple times during the year.  The Quirky Quilters, my tribe, do retreats twice a year, April and October.

Last year I went to the April QR because we had spent the winter with our daughter’s family helping out while our son-in-law was going through a scary hospitalization and then recovery.   It was this event ...

Ask Jo: Pumpkin Patch Questions from Jo's Country Junction


After I showed my Pumpkin Patch quilt makings I’ve had lots of questions….  This is from Quiltmaker magazine and is a Bonnie Hunter design.


From ShirlR:
I love Bonnie’s pumpkin quilt and was pleased to get the block in Quiltmaker magazine, but I, too, thought Bonnie, on Quilt Cam, was sewing them on regular paper and adding the corners by stitch and flip, using the the Simple Folded Corners ruler,. By measuring the template in the magazine, I now know the dimensions of the pumpkins, so will probably use the Quilt Cam method to make at least one ...

The Eagle Has Landed from Victoria's Life On A Page

Probably one of the quilts I’m most proud of.  Not sure why as it wasn’t the hardest or the prettiest.  I delivered this a couple of weeks ago and it will be auctioned veterans weekend at Krawlin for the Fallen.   It’s an annual even that raises funds for children  of fallen police officers to attend a summer camp.  I think it came out beautiful.

So Happy to Finally Deliver from Victoria's Life On A Page

I was so happy to finally deliver this.  A friend is going thru cancer treatments and the prognoses doesn’t look good.  Just wanted them to remember someone was praying for him and the family.   Delivered it yesterday and broke my heart that he called to say he didn’t deserve anything like that.  Jesus died on a cross so we are deserving.

Clean Out the Fridge Beef Stew from Jo's Country Junction


A post from Kelli–

Normally the fall is supposed to get progressively cooler right?  Well not this year in Iowa!  It seems like the last month or so, Mother Nature has been dishing out the 75-80 degree days like crazy.  Then we’ve had a few days where it’s strange because it’s cloudy, but humid, but there’s a bit of a wind.  This past weekend was super rainy, but still not freezing.   It was cool enough though to make stew!  Wahoo!

Since starting to work at the hospital, I’ve found myself just grabbing a couple things ...
