Pix-elated Skull from Gray Barn Designs

I spent a fun weekend in Erie, Pa watching my roommate’s son-in-law run a marathon. SIL is a fast runner and the Erie race is a good one for qualifying for the Boston Marathon. The site of the race, Presque Isle state park, is lovely — I will definitely return to Erie for the beachfront, the shopping, the wine and the food.

Calm Lake Erie on the morning of the race. The weather was perfect for runners.

SIL qualified — in personal best fashion. As a former (much slower) marathoner, it was a thrill to see him cruise across the finish ...

Lady of the Lake Quilt from Pieced Brain

I am loving my version of the Lady of the Lake quilt, a new pattern by Fat Quarter Shop from their Classic and Vintage Series. I made mine into a wall hanging measuring 34" x 50-1/2", perfect for an empty corner in my house. This has been a fun Sew Along!

I used fabrics by Marcus Brothers from their New London line (which I have had for quite a while) for the blocks, and a gray by Cloud9 for the background. The pattern, even though is from their Classic and Vintage collection, works very well with modern fabrics, too ...

Improv Chinese Coins from Scraps from Pink Doxies



Pocket Change Improv

This project was born from scraps. The fabric is a combination of Kaffe Fassett, Moda Grunge, and batiks. Check them out as 9 patches in this post for A Lesson In Value & Fabric Choice and a Hop. I had separated the scraps in a box instead of mixing them into my scrap stash, and they were easily turned into this wall hanging based on the Chinese coins pattern.


Chinese coins is another name for the Roman stripe pattern in many areas of the U.S. But in here in the Midwest we refer to it most often ...

New pattern: Pumpkin Sky wall hanging & pillow from Carried Away Quilting


As a Minnesota girl, I’ve come to love living in a state with four distinct seasons, but autumn is definitely my favorite. As a former farm girl, it is the time of year when I feel most connected to nature. It is the time of year that reminds us to be thankful, for the fall harvest and for our many blessings. So it is with autumn joy that I'm happy to share my newest pattern with you today: Pumpkin Sky.




This fat quarter friendly pattern includes the material list and instructions for you to make two projects: a ...

bad kitty in the pumpkin patch from easypatchwork

As a good "American," I decided not only to get ready for the Halloween season early this year, but I also designed a new table topper that everyone can make. You see, my husband is getting onto me every year that I don't decorate the house a little bit better for Halloween. He knows this is one of my favorite holidays, but I am a bit lazy when it comes to decorating for a specific season other

Details: Amish Inspired Roman Stripe Quilt from Pink Doxies


Amish Inspired Roman Stripe Quilt

I think it is important to show quilts in our homes in use, and for what they were intentionally created for--both warmth and beauty. This picture was not staged because I would have been a bit more careful with a dirty box full of sweet corn from the field, but was that a pretty sight when I opened the front door! Now let me tell you about the process of making this very traditional, Roman stripe quilt. 



All In One Afternoon 

The Roman stripe is a quick project. It is easy to understand why it ...

Frankie Baby! from Hobbies Up To Here

To say that my husband is proud of his very first fully completed quilting project is an understatement!  From start to finish, he did everything…choosing the pattern, the fabrics, the hand embroidery, the appliqué process, the quilting, the binding and sewing on the buttons.  ALL OF IT!  And I’m sure you’ll agree it’s not only … Continue reading Frankie Baby!

Generosity from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Maria Billings is asking that people watch out for her missing quilt. On June 9, 2017, “Generosity” was last seen during the set up of the SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Association) exhibition entitled “Wide Horizons,” which was held in Fuerth, Germany. More than a month later, on July 20, Maria was informed that her quilt had disappeared. A quilt by Sandy Snowdon also disappeared.

This quilt is 40″ square. It is a hand-painted whole-cloth quilt that is hand quilted. She made it in 2014. It has two labels. Both include the name of the quilt, “Generosity,” and her name. One ...

Recovered! Grandma’s Quilt from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Sara Flynn was looking for a quilt she made for her grandmother who recently passed away. Her aunt and cousin cleaned out the apartment at the assisted living building, and said they did not see the quilt. She suspected it was sent to the thrift store or sold at a yard sale in Bremerton, Washington during July 2017.

Thankfully, the quilt has now been found! It was in a box that had not been opened yet.

The main colors of this quilt are reds, oranges, pinks, and vintage fabrics. Some of the prints feature animals and roses. A light purple ...

Our Beautiful Native Birds from Romany Quilting

An easy finish this week – completing my New Zealand Native Bird Wall-hanging.  I soon got the machine quilting done, then applied the binding.  That’s quite a satisfying end to making a quilt or wall-hanging, I always feel.  Sitting down comfortably, folding the binding over to back of the quilt, adding plenty of pins, and hand stitching it down. I still haven’t got around to purchasing any of those plastic quilt clips yet, no doubt that would save me from sticking the occasional pin in my finger.

Adding the hanging sleeve didn’t take too long either – and there ...

Bertha’s quilt from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Mary King hopes to locate a quilted wall hanging that was made by Bertha McPherson for her mother. Bertha’s mother passed away in 2005 but Bertha continued to work on it. When Bertha passed away in 2009, her daughter kept the still unfinished quilt. In 2010, it was stolen from Bertha’s daughter during a home burglary in Scio, Oregon.

If you see a quilt that looks like this, please contact Mary at dolphinquilter@gmail.com.

bitten by the ungrateful fairy from easypatchwork

Today I logged onto to Craftsy to see what patterns I had sold. I quickly noticed I had one negative review of my "pattern" New York Beauty Alternate Cutting Instructions. I was reviewd with one out of five stars with the anonymous person stating it wasn't a pattern and wasn't worth the download. Hmmpf. Yes, I know this is not a free pattern but cutting instructions. I stated this on the

4th of July Weekend from Tim Quilts

I know it is the 4th of July weekend because the back yard is full of fireflies tonight.   They almost always start to really show up in my neighborhood this weekend.    There are always a few before but so many more now.   I  have tried getting pictures but my camera doesn’t want to cooperate.

I spent a few hours in the garden weeding and since the rain this year seems to always pass my garden by I had to water.   I can hardly wait to see my water bill.

Lately I have only been quilting bags but this weekend ...

DIY Fabric Flag Holiday Decoration with Easy Gathering Technique – Step by Step Tutorial from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

During a recent Facebook Live video, we taught a simple technique for gathering fabric. It’s great if you don’t have a lot of time (or patience).

We featured a cute project we came up with just in time for Independence Day, so here are the step by step instructions to make it!

Let’s start with the fun part! Pick your fabric! We used fabrics from Freedom by Sweetwater for Moda (Picnic Apple Red Yardage and Bandana Vanilla Yardage ...
