Back to school

Posted on August 20, 2009 at 4:06am 1 Comment

Summer break has gone too quickly! I'm excited to be back with the kids in school, but really mourning the loss of concentrated quilting time, not to say QWU time! I have a couple of UFO's that i'll be finishing for fundraisers, and a guild round robin to keep me sane! How long until Thanksgiving? Do you think the family will notice if I set the table with FQ's and 2 1/2" strips???

Whirlwind trip....

Posted on July 18, 2009 at 6:42am 5 Comments

I had the opportunity to accompany DH on a business trip to Fairbanks, Alaska. What a neat place! But, the best part....the quilt shops in log cabins! I felt really silly in Material Girls oogling the cool "Alaska" quilts, but I did it anyway. It was the experience of what do I look at next, what do I want, oh my! I finally settled on a particular local designer pattern and polar bear fabric. Will I try to go back? Absolutely! The people were welcoming and warm; the scenery amazing. But then,… Continue

Christmas in July

Posted on June 30, 2009 at 6:40pm 0 Comments

I've been working on a Christmas quilt top for our local shop's "Christmas in July" sale. Granted, I'm a little behind the power curve, but that is what I get when I make it up as I go. I used a charm pack, several yards of fabric and a really good seam ripper. The fabric is all Moda's "Kansas Troubles" fabric, so the colors are rich and warm. The pattern is a little irregular (intentional) so it gives a jolt to the more tranditional fabric. (I've been told by the shop owner that I'm good at… Continue

Back at the machine....sort of.

Oklahoma was great! I absolutely loved the Sooner Quilt shop in Guthrie. If you get a chance...it's worth the trip. Family good, elderly cousins great! Came home and found that my local shop was having a Sew-in, which was just what I needed. Bought fabric, made Kaleidescope table runner and it is now part of the display for Christmas fabric. Who would have thought? I'll post pictures when I see the top again! I'm debating, do I continue to piece or do I start quilting what I have? Big… Continue

On vacation

Posted on June 7, 2009 at 6:40pm 2 Comments

Off to vacation a week in Oklahoma, catching up with family and friends. I am thrilled to see everyone, but really am not excited about no machine or fabric. I guess the local quilt shops may have to be on my itinerary! The most positive thing I can think of is that my eyes will be rested to fall head first into fabric when I get home. Have a great week!

Mystery quilts...

Posted on June 4, 2009 at 5:52pm 3 Comments

Found a really cool mystery on line. I, however, have broken every rule since the beginning. The directions were to use 1/2 yard cuts. I, however, want to use my FQ stash. I was supposed to choose 12 prints; I now have 24 (or so!). I did cut the strips as directed and I will have the correct number of blocks; that is after I added more fabric. Oh well, I am enjoying the sewing. I think that I've discovereed it is easier to piece on vacation and to quilt during the school year. it's my excuse… Continue

Tomorrow is 1/2 day for students and we begin summer break! It also begins my concentrated piecing/quilting time. I am so excited. this week (I operate very efficiently under stress!) I have cut and almost finished piecing a BQ2 quilt top. It is really easy and a great beginner's quilt....or one for someone who just has to do something! The colors are not quilte mine, but i think I like it. Will post pictures when finsihed piecing. Quilting could be a ways off! I am anxiously looking to begin… Continue

How time flies!!!

The weeks have flown! My poor machines look at me longinly when I run past! Maybe touching the fabric is in my future over summer break:-) #3 grandson, Garrett Paul weighed in at 8 lbs this past Wednesday. Family doing well; big brother (age 5) couldn't wait to take his "bro" home!

Planning a quilt....

Posted on May 3, 2009 at 1:54pm 2 Comments

Just sent home my guild companion in crime. We had the "kick off the raffle quilt" meeting with our guild VP and Pres. The design includes Rail Fence and nine patch blocks, rotating around a celtic applique. My bud and I verbally designed it while riding home from a quilt show in February. The best part is, the VP/PRes liked it! So, the next step is to purchase the fabrics....What a tough one! Gonna have to go fabric shopping. Hey, somebody's gonna have to do it! We also have the scheduling of… Continue

Am new...

Posted on May 1, 2009 at 6:33pm 6 Comments

Am new to this group and would like to introduce myself. My name is Jeannie and I live in eastern North Carolina. I teach elementary/middle school and love weekends when I can quilt. DH works on the road so I spend lots of time at home. I love fabric and playing with it. Right now I'm trying to find my way around, but really like what I see! Hoping to get to know some of you soon!
