I started quilting because my mom does it, and I was interested in it as well.I'm a beginner, but hoping now that I very recently graduated I can focus on learning more.

I can't believe I haven't been on here in forever! I got so busy, it looks like I just couldn't find the time to get on here! Hopefully, that all changes! While, I'm at it, hopefully, I actually finish some quilts, instead of the top of my projects. Which I seem to be very good at doing. Wish me luck! Continue

April and May

Posted on November 8, 2010 at 12:46pm 8 Comments

I didn't get a chance to put April up and I got May done really fast. I'll probably have to put them away for awhile because I really need to work on any christmas presents I might be making and the dress for the Historical Society. I went and bought the fabric for the dress and now I really need to hunker down and focus! Also, a big thanks to everyone who comments on these. Since I'm just learning I really appreciate feedback of any kind. :)…

Baby Quilt Almost Done!

Posted on November 1, 2010 at 4:31pm 5 Comments

I finally got some time to do some quilting and I was super motivated! Yesterday morning, I went to a stitch n'bitch that my best friend set up and worked on some embroidery. Then I went to work, and after work, convinced my mom to go to JoAnns. Due to most of OHS's events being set in the 1860's I've wanted to make a dress (and by me, I mostly mean my mom...while I supervise.HA!) and I finally got all the stuff I need for my "undergarments"-gotta start ground up! I'll have the corset made, and… Continue

Third Block Done!

Posted on October 27, 2010 at 10:32am 4 Comments

I actually finished this block a bit ago, but am just now getting around to posting it on here! I've been super busy-the past two weekends at the Historical Society we had our All Hallow's Eve event. This is an event that takes place in our 1860's village, it's all historically accurate and shows the different ways they celebrated Halloween in the 1860's, which is mostly games, food, and fortune telling. They also tell the Legend of Sleepy Hollow and have a headless horseman ride through. It's… Continue

Second Block Done!

Posted on October 6, 2010 at 9:43am 5 Comments

I finally finished February of my Sunbonnet Sue calender quilt.I thought I'd finish these a bit quicker but I've been busier than planned. My mom and a bunch of us went to the Country Living Fair which is put on by the magazine and not only happens to be in our hometown, but at the Historical Society where I volunteer. They always have such neat stuff, and I always wish I had more money...maybe one day right? I'm still working on a baby quilt for my friend. Hopefully I'll get to that next week… Continue

Hi Katie, thank you for the friendship offer. I think it will be many things that we can share and I hope to start sharing right away.

I keep thinking that I'm going to get to a stage where I will have more time and get more done, but so far it hasn't happened. My two kids are in college (one about to graduate), and my DH is retired on disability. I keep up with them and help my parents as much as I can. My days stay as filled as they did when I was in school, working, then at home with my kids and home schooling. Of course, I wouldn't have it any other way--and I'm never bored.

Katie, I would love to have the patterns but I don't like to put my personal info on here since this is a public page.

Hi, Katie--one of my favorite names, BTW. I haven't done any of the Crabapple Hill designs, but learned about them from friends in the Around the Frame group. I have put one on my someday list, but it's a really long list. I understand what you mean about doing one thing, learning another, forgetting to go back....I used to sew clothes, but why sew something that will be outgrown or wear out when you can make a quilt? And I cross-stitched as obsessively as I quilt now, but when I learned to quilt I never went back to it. I've moved my patterns, fabric and thread thousands of miles and haven't taken a stitch. One of the ladies in my local guild has a top ready to quilt, and the blocks are a beautiful circle of embroidered flowers--made me start thinking about my DMC.

Hi Katie-The quilt is a memory quilt for my grandmother...she was quite the character and involved in many things. The quilt has been traveling along with a journal for the past months to her family and friends. It has been an interesting study on human nature, along with getting stories about my family. I will be working on a book this winter! Thanks for asking!!!

Hi Katie, Thanks for the compliment ;0). I always have something packed to work on in waiting rooms, even ER waiting rooms, as I have to have something to do. Might even be the same project for years, but as long as I can keep busy, it's ok! Hand embroidery fits perfectly. You've got a great "start" w/your quilting and embroidery; looks like you are off and running! I especially love your purse and baby quilt. Great fabric selections - and sometimes that's half the battle! I look forward to seeing more of your work, happy sewing!
And yes, the dogs are all mine, but pic is almost three yrs old and the smallest dog is deceased now, she was 14.

Hi Katie, Yep, the first t-shirt quilt top was set together last night. I'm not sure when I'll get it sandwiched and tied. The goal is Christmas for both. One down, one to go. I'm not a huge fan of the whole t-shirt quilt process and haven't been very creative with it. I just made all of the blocks the same width, determined how long I wanted the quilt to be and figured the width of the setting strips, sewed them in long columns and then sewed the columns together. It's a pretty good sized quilt and should be comfy to cuddle under. Hopefully DD's quilt will go together a little bit faster. Most of the time I spent on DS's quilt was trying to figure out just exactly how to go about the process. Now that I have a plan, maybe the second one won't be put off take me as long. :0) While putting off planning the t-shirt quilt, I spent the time whipping up little "pot pinchers" hot pads for Christmas or shower gifts. I have about a dozen of them done. No pictures yet, but they are quick & easy and use up some fat quarters. Hope all is well with you.

Be sure to post a picture! Baby quilts are so fun. They are always so satisfying to put together because they are usually not a huge time commitment and they make great gifts.

Hi Katie, I'm trying to figure out a t-shirt quilt for the kids. I'm flying by the seat of my pants on this one, so I'm not sure how it will turn out. I think I'll keep it as simple as possible and they can use them for a dorm quilt or stadium quilt or whatever. It will just be tied and hopefully warm and cozy. I'm using all of our son's high school wrestling t-shirts for his. Still now sure how he came to have so many of those. :0) I'll use various themed t-shirts of our daughter's for hers - music, FFA, volleyball, etc. She wasn't into sports so much, but in a small, rural school everyone tends to participate in everything. She has a lot of college t-shirts, so maybe after she's out of school, I'll use those in another one. I guess I shouldn't count my chickens before they hatch until I get the first one done and see how it goes!

Hugs from Nebraska! PQ
