Time to Bind

Now that the temps are starting to cool off I'm anxious to get to work on the binding of this and one other quilt that are ready for the handwork. I know I could have done it on those hot 90's summer days, but I had other "cooler" projects to work on then. LOL  This quilt is perfect for Fall, with lots of great sunflowers, including some applique ones on it. I can't take the…

Cloth Dolls

Hey Yawl!

It has been a while since I last posted.  All is well.  I am currently enrolled in grad school pursuing a masters in elementary education.  It has been 20yrs since my BS but I'm doing very well in my class.  I've already taken one class and next week will be mid-terms in my 2nd class.  I have 8 more classes to go.  I should graduate in May 2013. It took a minute to dust the cobwebs out of my brain though...lol!


I haven't been doing much quilting lately,…

What size do you make your baby quilt?

I am thinking about using up some flannel to make some Receiving blankets for Teen moms. The ones I have purchase are only 36" square, they look small to me since I have never been a new born mom. I am thinking about making them 45" square. I am also thinking about making some quilted quilts, but I am not sure if that  is worth giving out for Teen moms and I also heard a baby should not sleep with a quilt.

Double Wedding Ring Quilt veterans

Question for those of you who have made DWRs with 30's fabrics.  Did you use a white or off-white background? 


At first I thought the off-white would be the way to go, so it would look more vintage.  But then thought a crisp white would make those 30's fabrics pop.  Any thoughts?

As promised

I said that I would get the main part of my quilt done today and I have.  I was a little worried this morning, nothing was going right at work and I figured that would carry over into my sewing time but I sat down,  had my coffee and gave myself a break before starting.  In the next few days I will get the border put on.  I haven't quite decided on what to do about that part but as easy as the block was to put together, the borders will be a piece of cake.…

Update on my scrappy quilt

I finally finished piecing all of my flying geese and snowball squares.  Yay me.  So I decide to start piecing all the light blocks together, or that is what I intended on doing.  I do not get to do that because I get to spend the day taking stitches out of the 1 light color block that I have sewn together and my 1 dark color block that I have sewn together. As I was looking over things to see what went where I noticed that I apparently can not follow directions.  I put the wrong colors in the… Continue

Doily with beads

I know, I know! This is a quilt site, BUT experience taught me that quilters are very often creative in other areas too!  My question is: are any of you familiar with a beaded doily?  Did your mom or granny use them too? For some reason I am not able to post the picture here, but you will find a pic on my page.  I didn't crochet this doily myself, but inherited it from my granny who died at the age of 89 a few years ago.  People from those "long ago" times used these doilies to cover their…

Negligent in Posting but Busy never the less

Well here it nearing the end of Sept. I think it is the first day of fall. I have been quilting but have put aside my baby Jane AKA  'Related to Jane"  for a little while  I do some Christmas projects .  One of these is a Christmas wall hanging and another is a lap quilt for one of my grand daughters for Christmas.

During the summer I helped my 11 yr, old grand daughter to do her first sewing machine project...an apron then more recently I've been helping a Chinese…

Something for me to get excited about!

I had to go back and look at my posts to figure out when I started my latest quilt.  September 12th.   With any luck I will have the main piece of my quilt finished tomorrow.  I was surprized when I realized I needed to make ten more blocks and once the pieces were cut I had most of them put together in one day.  That's got to be a speed record for me! And knowing me I will stay up way too late tomorrow just to get it done.  Ok so late for me is 9:30.  I have been totally stressed out about… Continue

Been too busy lately, have hardly been on the computer at all.  I miss this and have to find a way to keep up!  My DH was working a lot and we've had Miss McGee on weekends, which means that I've had Miss McGee on weekends!  Not complaining, I love to have her.  But weekends are no longer for sewing.  School (and therefore work) has started back up too.  I've had new foster cats, one who was left tied in a pillowcase by a barn with her two kittens.  The current one was accidentally…

Good Morning Quilters!

It seems to be later and later before I get my blog up these days. It's not that I am not on the site, as I am usually writing by 8 am.

I have been busy answering emails about my cruise with sewmanyplaces.com this morning, blogging, and updating my "Create" site.

Finally, I am ready to work on my Seasonal Mug Rug project! I will be stitching up a new design, thanks to the fact I am disorganized in my craft room. You just know the second I publish the new design, the one…

My second instruction class on the Elna 9600

Having bought the Elna 9600  from Pocono Sew n Vac recently, I was able to take introductory classes on the use of the machine. The first class was in mid summer. Figured out how to  thread it, bobbin up and sew on it with the various stitch functions. No problem. I made four Triple Irish Chains during the summer.

The second class was how to use the embroidery function.  Well now..embroidery offers a whole lot of new ideas and more computer functions that scroll you from page to page…

Passion of CQ

Well, I'm very new on this site but not to the world of the internet. I am in love with Crazy quilting and have two at various stages. One is still only together with pins, oops! I am a single mother of 4 young adults and they all have their own quilts. Oh! I do have a CQ blog, only a week old but the photo's on it are of my own quilts.


I even had the opportunity to send a friend over there since he wanted to see…

The Wedding was Beautiful !!!

I have been absent for a while, I was working to make a few things for my son's wedding.  The theme was "Shabby Chic".  I made 3 sets of flags, one with the applique "Mr. and Mrs.".  I  also made the Ring Bearer Pillow.   Oh by the way, this is my beautiful new daughter-in-law.  Now, my next project is to make a wall hanging using fabrics and keepsakes from the wedding.   I have…

A gift for a new baby.

So this isn't exactly quilting, but it's crafty. I've been making frames as gifts for many years, and I just started taking photos of them. This frame is for my husband's cousin's daughter, baby Georgia, born just 10 days ago. Her nursery is hot pink with green and orange accents, so I thought the flower stickers and jewels (hello bling! they live in Hollywood) would go nicely with a hot pink spray painted wooden frame I purchased at a crafts store. 

I hope she likes it! (P.S. my…
