Of Piecing, Binding, Eastering, and College Visiting from Cheeky Cognoscenti

It's been a busy week, but I still (barely) managed to squeeze in enough personal sewing time to stay on top of my goals -- in addition to my "extra duties" as Family Event Planner, Easter Chef, and Travel Agent/Tour Guide to Out-of-State College Towns.  My label is appliquéd to my bear paw quilt and I sewed the binding to the front of my quilt today.

Bear Paw Binding Began Today

Notes to Self: I'm still tweaking and improving my binding process.  This time, I cut my binding strips at 2 1/8" wide and sewed them to ...

Easter from From the Strawberry Patch...

Another Easter has come and gone; and, in this week following, spring has got a full grip on the weather, the pollen has begun to descend in thick, yellow waves, covering everything in its sight. We celebrated Jesus' Resurrection with worship in our new church last Sunday; there was a large crowd (highest attendance ever for our little mission church) of faithful folks in attendance, it was an

Patriotic Table Runners, This and That from Grandma's Red Needle

 I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. For us, it was just normal days. Here, compared to Norway, there are no public holidays related to Easter. In Norway; Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Monday are public holidays. Now that we are on partial lockdown (phase #1 in reopening), all church services are closed. If you would like to know more about lockdown Easter celebration in Mauritius, click here

UFO's are put aside, since I'm currently working on two Patriotic table runners. It's a custom order to one in the US. 


OOOH! That photo doesn't ...

Happy Easter Parade from From My Carolina Home

This weekend the small town of Dillsboro in western NC was finally back to holding their annual Easter parade on the day before Easter. We were there in 2018, our first drive event with the Appalachian Mountain MINI club, and I posted about it then. See the cars and the parade from that year here – Dillsboro Parade. So, the following year, I knew we needed to make a good effort, so I made my Easter Bonnet to wear. You can see the construction of it on my Easter Bonnet post. Unfortunately, the parade was rained out in 2019, and canceled ...

Begonia Bunny from Quilt Doodle Doodles...


 Spring is in the air, my seedlings have started to grow and I can't wait to get into the garden. Since it's too early to go digging in the garden, I can dream of spring in my sewing room. So I drew up this sweet little bunny named Begonia. She loves flowers and is wearing a sweet wreath of freshly picked flowers. She's also wearing a pretty pink bow for Easter. I also love her little heart nose and her chubby little cheeks. 

This is a fun little mini quilt that can be used as a mug ...

Abiding in faith from Quilt in Piece

Greetings in Christ! We are fast approaching the Day of Pentecost, in just one week, which will end the Season of Eastertide. And I find myself reflecting upon the texts from our readings from Ascension day, including tomorrow’s readings. For many, the lockdown has been a trying time for many reasons, and there is no end in sight. People are hungry, cold, sick, dying, lonely, depressed, losing jobs, struggling financially and this all includes the church communities. The pastors are working harder than ever, to keep everything and everyone together and a sinking ship afloat. In last weeks reflections ...

Card Making from mequilter

As you know I do other things besides quilting and cross-stitching. 
I made some Easter cards in the shape of a basket.


This looking down on the basket.


This is looking straight at the front of the card.

I made the purple in two different shades. 
Here is the dark purple.



I made this same card for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day. My next version will be for Mother's Day. I think. I can also see it in Red, White, and Blue for the 4th of July. I don't usually make cards for the 4th but I ...

Hangin' with Harvey from From the Strawberry Patch...

There's a sameness to every day right now. Although I do try to keep to a normal (for me) schedule during these days-on-end of staying at home and quarantining- (getting up at 6, dressing for the day, morning walks, regular mealtimes, cleaning house on Fridays, ironing on Saturday mornings...) I dispensed with decorating the house for Easter this year. I can't remember ever NOT doing that
