Next Project Bin on deck - #21 from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

 This one may take awhile.

What’s in the bin?

Broken Crayons quilt — a flimsy


International Mystery Tour Egyptian Pyramids quilt — all rows are pieced (I think)

Rouenneries Baskets — a NESTY for a pattern I designed in Electric Quilt for French General’s first line of fabrics.

Stitch & B!tch Sampler — a UFO I have stewed over for years.

Of these projects, the NESTY has gone back into the fabric stash. The rest will be completed this year. First up is the Stitch & B!tch Sampler.

In November 2016, Cindy, LeiLani and I went to the Houston quilt show. We ...

Happy National Quilting Day; Welcome, Spring; and—Project Bin 22 is empty! from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

...even if it wasn’t all necessarily quilting projects.

Actually, there are some scraps left. And while I thought it would be fun to do something with those scraps, I decided against it because I want to move on to Project Bin 21.

And, this is the first time in several years that I am able to celebrate #NQD by QUILTING. And, it’s the first day of a long-awaited vacation and today may be my only chance to do it, so this will be a very short post!

The last item in PB22 was a bunch of patriotic fabrics ...

Another small project - Fun and Done from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

...from another online class!

FWIW, online classes are a necessity given our current global pandemic state. I know I've mentioned that I'm not necessarily a fan, but remember when I said how much I clicked the "Buy Now" button? This was the result of one of those moments.

I've done some collage work and while I like it, I think my technique can be improved. I subscribe to Emily Taylor's (Collage Quilter) (NAYY) newsletter and she offered in... November? December? a free online class showing how to use her method to create her Winter Cardinal pattern ...

Present from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

 As in:

  • Here and accounted for; 
  • Being in the moment; 
  • A gift.

“Present” will be my word for 2021.


I’m not much for doing the latest thing and it seems the “word of the year” may have become passé or swallowed up in COVID posts. But this word popped in my head this morning along with the above definitions, and I thought, “Why not?”

Because I wasn’t present for the bulk of 2020.

A lot of that is due to the pandemic, but I need to take ownership of part of it due to my own struggles. I ...

Happy New Year! And, a Finally Finished! from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

Yes, dear readers, today is only January 2, and I have a Finally Finished to reveal. And some thoughts about learning curves.

Happy New Year! I know I already said it, but it feels good to say it. 2020 is SO LAST YEAR as the kids say, and I think we are all grateful that it is.

Who knew a year ago that when I may have mentioned how awful 2019 was, that 2020 would be worse?

But more about 2020 in another post. I know it's been a while since my last post. There are many reasons for ...
