Videos From My Mother and Other News! from Where Art & Life Meet

First things first. My mother sent me two videos this week and both are too wonderful to not pass along. The text within this video roughly translates to: “What an animal concert: The Cologne pianist Thelonious Herrmann came up with this unusual idea. He took his piano to the Koln Zoo to play among goats,… Continue reading Videos From My Mother and Other News!

Friday Frolic! from Humble Quilts

A friend sent me a box of precious blocks! These are just a handful of terrific fabric with madder. All of the blocks are pretty crispy. Any thoughts about washing? Or just piece them together as is? I didn't iron them but they look pretty accurate despite my photo!

I'm continuing lectures that had to be rescheduled from last year. 

It isn't as good as real life, but it is so nice that it is possible to stay connected to quilters!

This is what we call false spring. Just a tease. The hill we were climbing was ...

Wednesday Wonderings from Humble Quilts

Janny sent me a photo of her completed string quilt. She was inspired by THIS blog post and quilt that I started in a Gwen Marston class. So wonderful Janny! 
If my quilts have inspired you to make a quilt I'd love if you would share that! That really keeps me motivated to blog and quilt!

 Here's a little different string quilt from my friend Susan I love everything about this!! Here was her thought process:

I thought I would show you my first string quilt.
It is called Three.
Three because it is composed of three ideas ...

Machine Applique Class from Humble Quilts

I feel like Saturday's workshop was a success! Every time I do a Zoom class or workshop I'll get better and better. LOL That's the plan!

Here is Deborah's machine appliqued block. Nice work!

And Mary's completed block. Another beauty!

Thank you ladies who were able to make it and support me by taking this online workshop.

I already have an idea to make it better!

Have a terrific week!

Monday ♪♪ Monday Machine Applique Class from Humble Quilts

 Here we go! 2021 is here and it is up to each one of us to make it a great year! Attitude is everything!

I'm going to start with a video on machine applique. I have several quilts I've hand appliqued, but most of mine now are done by machine. I just do not have enough time to do as much hand work as I'd like. 

Check out the You Tube video! Click on the photo above or go directly HERE.

Here is one block on an entire reproduction quilt that I machine appliqued. 

I've scheduled ...

Fun on A Friday! from Humble Quilts

Happy Friday Friends!

Here's a sneak peak at a vintage quilt purchase! Oh my goodness, it is darling as can be! Who doesn't love polka dots??!! More to come.

Here's my instagram from the last several weeks. 

A couple things:

I'm in charge of the Angel Tree program this year and we had a whopping 62 kids. In ONE Sunday, with less people attending (more watching from home these days) and a few texts on Monday all names were spoken for. With our "freeze" the next 2 weeks our church will not be meeting, so I ...

Sparkling Star from Humble Quilts

Last week I string pieced some diamonds to test a block for the String Class I taught online on Saturday.  I'll interject here, I had a really fun time and I think the participants did too.
So, when class was over I finished this star. I'm going to lose a few outside points but I can live with that. 
I'm considering making this the center of a medallion quilt. 
I forgot how fiddly it was to assemble a LeMoyne star!
The dogs are usually in the living room, but because I was set up in the kitchen ...

Technical Difficulties from Humble Quilts

One positive thing, my son came over and helped me set up my 2 camera system set up so I can do workshops through Zoom. Because one is a new class for 2020 I had not been able to do it live before covid hit. Would any of you be interested in paying for a class for me to work a few bugs out? If I have enough interest I'll get it set up. 

This is the class:

New for 2020!
String Quilts Your Way!
String quilts have been made since 1860. Most were foundation pieced for stability and ...

Nude Men, Zoom & Live Streaming from Where Art & Life Meet

I know, I know, some of you may be thinking – She’s totally abandoning us here. We subscribe to her YouTube channel and now she’s on Patreon and everything’s exclusive and I can’t do any of that, and what’s going on? Have no fear.
