High Fiber—Cutting Up and Getting Out

Posted by Peggy Stuart on September 1, 2014 at 8:30am 12 Comments

The main activity for this week was my "Reflections of Butterflies in Lemonade" quilt top.

I started this quilt on Tuesday. It's the Disappearing Hourglass block from Missouri Star's Quilt Block magazine, the latest issue. There's also a video of how to make it on …


Timing is everything...not always good!

This was hubby's birthday weekend, neighborhood surprise party and making double tray of meatballs for a charity. I'm cooking for a birthday dinner on Friday a.m. when the phone rings and it's longtime fiends wanting to know if we had plans...thought they would come for an overnight. They grew up with us and our families are close, so sure...make more food. The kitchen was wrecked, hadn't taken a shower or done hair...putting the apple pie in the oven for hubby's birthday cake. A car pulls…


Is there a limit?

Posted by Prairie Quilter/NE on August 31, 2014 at 3:34pm 8 Comments

Do you ever wonder if there is a limit to the mistakes one person can make in a single day?  I'm not sure, but I think I'm almost "achieved" it.  Ka-chow!  Some days it just seems like we should be able to stop and yell "do-over!" like when we were kids.  

Now don't get me wrong - I'm not going for sympathy, but rather humor.  None of my mistakes today  have been life-threatening to me or anyone else.  They have just been air-headed goof-ups that make me shake my head and wonder…

I posted a couple days ago that we had a sisters reunion on a pontoon.  Here we are left to right with birth order in parentheses:  Marilyn (4th), June (me 3rd), Marlene a.k.a. Dolly (5th), Marsha (2nd), and Karen (1st).  We are so blessed that we are all still on this earth and able to get together; 3 in Wisconsin,…


Baby Quilt for my Great Niece

Posted by Carole on August 30, 2014 at 2:30pm 12 Comments

Her Mama likes orange but I wanted to keep it light and airy. This pattern from an old quilt magazine seemed to fit the bill. Backed with chevrons which seem to be quite popular right now. Hope they like it.…


It's finally started raining in western Washington

Posted by Kathy/WA on August 30, 2014 at 9:37am 8 Comments

As summers go out here we've had a very mild summer.  Very little rain sense June and not a lot of the hot temps.  It's mostly been in the 80's even in August which kind of surprised me.  I like the warmer weather!

So what does one do when it starts raining?  I finished the mariner quilt the other night, (see earlier post). I've had my next project loaded on the LA sense taking the other off but I haven't figured out all the quilting designs to fill up the space.  Deciding that it…


And my summer is almost over!

Posted by Sue S. / OR on August 28, 2014 at 10:42pm 8 Comments

Well, here we are...the tail end of summer. I work at our local middle school, we start back on Sept 2, the summer went way too fast. I did get one quilt done this summer for my oldest son's friend. I still need to post a pic of it completed. My goal was to get a queen size quilt done for OUR bed, but that is only in the beginning stages.

I tackled cleaning out many of our closets. I've decided that some sort of hobbit brings things Into this house at night and dumps it all in my closets!… Continue
