Clothes Line Baby Quilt-Complete

Posted on June 18, 2015 at 8:16am 13 Comments

Baby Isabelle finally graced proud parents with her presence and the baby quilt is complete and should be arriving to it's destination today. I didn't do a very good job displaying it.  I stuck it to my design wall and didn't pay attention that is wasn't on their…


Clothes Line Baby Quilt

Posted on April 29, 2015 at 8:19am 11 Comments

My sister remembers my mother making a quilt for her son when he was born.  Now her son is about to have a new baby and wanted a quilt like the one my mother made for him.  Only the new baby is going to be a girl.  This is what we came up with.  We are personalizing the clothing with baby's name and stats.  I will finish the bottom clothes (just patterns showing in the…


Question about machine vibration

Posted on April 2, 2015 at 6:49am 9 Comments

Good Morning All!  I have a question.  When I sew with my Bernina 930, which is a very heavy machine, it sews just fine from the desk that it sits on at home.  It is a very sturdy desk.  When I take this machine to retreats and use it on the light weight folding tables (the molded plastic type with folding legs) the vibration of my machine really throws off the thread tension.   I read before my last retreat to use a folded towel under the machine, but that really didn't help much.  Somehow…


Customized Quilt and Shams

Posted on February 5, 2015 at 10:53am 25 Comments

I recently made this customized quilt for one of my friends DH.  He has a western room, he also raises cattle and requested his brand in the quilt and also requested specific colors.  I threw in some pillow shams and included his brand as well.  Can you tell he lives in Texas...lol  He was so pleased with this quilt, like a kid in a candy shop.  I was so concerned that he…


Hand Quilting Question

Posted on February 5, 2015 at 10:13am 8 Comments

I have a question for those that hand quilt.  I have a friend that has a quilt top that she wants hand quilted.  She is a senior citizen and has limited mobility.  I have volunteered pick up her batting and backing for her.  I am a long arm quilter and I know that the backing and batting needs to be 4" longer on each side of the quilt top.  Are there guidelines to follow for the backing and batting for hand quilting?

Thanks for your nice comments on my projects.  The snowman/snowflake pillow is from a design in Art to Hearts "HoHoHo Let It Snow book by Nancy Halvorsen.  Certainly a little tedious cutting out all those angles....and rather time consuming with all that buttonhole stitching but I just had to try that pattern.

I agree with you Catherine, that getting away even though for a short time is refreshing.  I really needed to get away.  Yes, I was very surprised that I met the lady who was connected to my ancestors.  And she was as shocked as I was.

Catherine, we don't have what i call a back garden so that also was a problem, Thumper was a crossed with a cocker Spaniel he was so lovely my husband has had several operations & will be having another one in a few months so with all that it was too much for me as we had to take him for a walk twice a day we miss not having a dog we could only have a very small one but even then i am not planning on getting one we have at one time had 3 boxer dogs so we have always had large powerful dogs but we was younger & could manage them but not so now

Hugs Janice

Thanks for your liking of my pics. I have a Brother Quattro II. The sewing center that I shop at, gives lessons and we meet once a month to share ideas and drool over the new designs. I really enjoy the 'In the Hoop' designs. 

Do you do quilts of valor? I belong to a small group and we have a lot of fun sewing together. I have donated several tops to them. I need to give to charities as there are only so many things you can give to family. No grandkids to spoil :(.

Take care,

Hi Cathy, Seems we are still in Connecticut...Haven't left yet. Hope your doing well with the weather that is coming your way. It seems like your weather is going crazy.  I haven't sewed in some time, but with the house all empty and we are still packing, to find places to put things. Almost done, should be moving either tomorrow or Wednesday...They can't be putting this off much longer, All in the Lord's hands anyway. Hope you are well,,you can e-mail us, we go to the Library to see all of our e-mail. Please keep praying. this is getting hard.......

Hi Catherine, yes, I was born to be a grandmother, :).  I actually only have one grandchild, but my neighbors also let me "grandmother" theirs.  I am grateful for that!  A Bag of Tricks sounds wonderful, very good idea.
