I have been enjoying making baby quilts from a book, "Story Time", by Kim Gaddy. I have been waiting for the right baby and he finally arrived in May. This is my first applique. I am a hand quilter so it is needle turn applique and hand quilted. I am very thankful for You Tube. Every time I got stuck with the applique process, there was a video. Great resource.
This quilt was a lot of fun and I know it is going to a good home.…Continue
To say it was awesome is such an understatement. The only technique that I could have offered up on the winners...I could have done the binding!!! The artistry is just gorgeous. My hubby tried to get a few pictures to show the tiny machine quilting that was done. Unusual borders and bindings.…Continue
Are there any written directions on what to do with this panel? I was thinking I could use an interfacing to add stability and then back each mitten with a Christmas print. Then leave the top open to put in small wrapped candy treats. It was on clearance and I was hoping to make a few for a seasonal craft show.
I bought the Connecting Threads quilt kit called City View using beautiful leafy Batik fabrics. It went together in an impressive 4 hours max. Has anyone else made this and quilted it? My first thoughts were to straight line quilt it, making kind of a grid of the windows. That seems to clash with the leafy batik. Yet I don't want busy quilting to obstruct the fabric design.
Has anyone had experiences they would, or wouldn't repeat quilting up this pattern?…Continue
That is the theme for my quilt guild's annual quilt show this year. We will also be incorporating a Quilts of Valor presentation in with the festivities. So the show chairman asked us to make miniature quilts depicting that theme and here is my entry. It is 13" x 15". …Continue
Words can't express enough thanks I have for each of you with your love and support over the years as I cared for my mom, and through her homecoming. The service on Friday was great. My BFF came and officiated. She knew Mom, so that made it extra special to me. I'm intentionally changing my weekly routine, not going to town on the days I have been to help adjust to a new normal. I think about and miss Mom greatly but am so happy she is healthy and whole and in her eternal home. I would…Continue
What a summer! I'm often surprised when I check my calendar. Evidently I have no sense of time but this year has been exceptional. I feel like I lost February and March. Then April grabbed May and they scooted off together. I guess June and July thought that looked like fun and ran after them. Holy smoke!
Now, I should be here for a couple of weeks. The garden is filled with weeds. I have done final changes (I'd do more if I was allowed) on new book. Book 7 in the series. How did…Continue
Thank you so much for choosing me as the winner of your Christmas in July...week 3 contest! I love the black, white, and gray fabrics, thread, and the red mug. It just so happens, I am currently working on a quilt with black, white and gray fabrics, with a splash of red. I'm sure this prize will add some other fabrics to that quilt. I'm so excited and can't wait for my package to arrive. THANKS!!!!!
