Pin Cushion in a Cup

Posted by Ann Johnson on December 18, 2014 at 11:30am 1 Comment


Okay - so making a pin cushion out of a cup is not a new idea. The reason for this one is, well - I found a cute (and free!) grey cup and saucer in the photo department's prop give-away. Since my quilt studio is done in yellow and grey, it was logical that, all of a sudden, I needed a new pin cushion! For more detailed information about the supplies used and how to make the pin…


The Holiday Celebrations begin

Posted by Rebecca Sundberg on December 18, 2014 at 9:28am 6 Comments


I took this photo on my way into town about 2 weeks ago when we’d had just a dusting of snow down at the lower levels, but the mountains that surround our valley were ‘marshmallow white”.  Taken from the pullout area that looks towards our airport and looking towards what are commonly called “The…


Yo-Yo Christmas Ornaments

Posted by Ann Johnson on December 18, 2014 at 8:30am 7 Comments


I enjoy making Yo-Yos, so I thought I would "whip up" some Yo-Yo ornaments I saw in a recent issue of Quilter's World called Quilting for the Holidays. I decided to make two of each while I was at it so I could share some as gifts. For detailed information about cutting and making Yo-Yos of different sizes with and without …


Another finish

Posted by Janet/MO on December 17, 2014 at 6:33pm 9 Comments

I am having so much fun making these quick little quilts.  This one is called "Smiley" and is a design by Lynn Doyle of Bloominminds.  It is 16" x 19" and was a great way to try out the buttonhole stitch on my new Pfaff.…


Ready to wrap the last gift!

Posted by B J Elder/WA on December 15, 2014 at 4:19pm 15 Comments

This afternoon I made this iPad bag for my sister -- the last gift on my list.  It sure goes together fast!  It's one of Debbie Snyder's patterns - the Kerrie Bag.  Now for a bit of gift wrap and the task is done.

On to making truffles and other…


High Fiber—Out With the New, in With the Old?

Woven scarf finished.

Done blocking and ready to wrap and give. (Watch after Christmas for photos of the gift items I made other than the rabbits. The kids don't read my blog yet, so I could show those.)…


Attn: members who like to read - Off Topic

Posted by Janet/MO on December 15, 2014 at 6:43am 6 Comments

I love to read just as much as I love to quilt and knit.  Amanda Best mentioned books by Fannie Flagg recently so I checked them out of my local library as it has been a long time since I read any of her books.  I just have to say that everyone needs to read these two books!  One is called "Can't Wait to Get to Heaven" and it was published in 2006.  The other is "The All Girl's Filling Station's Last Reunion" and it was published this year.  I found myself reading passages out loud to my…


Gingerbread village for giants....

The local casino always puts up a beautiful Christmas display. This year it was a 6-7 ft. high village. You could smell the candy throughout the main floor! It was very impressive...sor…
