The quilt I will never make again ever!

Some of you may know this quilt as a broken star. I am renaming it the quilt I will never ever, ever, ever make again ever. Almost got the borders finished. 2 more strips of white to sew to the top and bottom then another round of the brown border and call it done. Ok so that makes the top and it still has to be quilted. Any volunteers??????…

Here is a pic of the back:…

No, not the movie. My life.

newly painted quilt studio

After being in our house for almost 7 yrs I finally talked my husband in to painting my sewing room.  What a job, but I'm so happy with how it turned out.  This would normally be a living room, but has worked perfectly for a sewing room.  Next up is the kitchen, but I promised him I would let him finish redoing our deck first so it will probably be fall before that happens.…

March Already

Just checking in to say hello to all my Quilting Friends.

I have had a fairly productive Winter so far.  I got a third quilt back from the LAQ yesterday but have to put the binding on before I take a picture.  I started working on a Sunbonnet Sue for my second great granddaughter. I'm also working on a wall hanging when I go to our Sewing Club.  I can't believe how fast the time flies. Our Snow Birds will be packing up and moving back to their homes before too long. 

My next…

Paducah news!

I am thrilled. I just learned that my quilt has been juried in to the Spring show in Paducah. I know it will not win anything but it is exciting nonetheless. Squeee!

Non-traditional Dresden

These Dresden village quilts are quite fun to do.  In our quilt group one was done for Halloween, another in progress for Halloween, a few all season, like mine, and one in a beach theme.  I'm thinking ahead, and would like to do a Halloween village for a DIL that would appreciate it. …

Winter snowy days!

Those winter blowy snowy days when you just want to hunker down and not put your nose out the door a good time to get a few thing sewn up in my sewing studio.

It may sound strange but getting my stock back up after last Christmas In Paris show and sale, to replenish my stoc for this year.. So here is some pouches I have worked on. A little bit of thread painting to embellish the front of these wool pouches.…

Time flies, life changes

The days may seem long but the weeks and months fly by. So many changes have happened in my life. My dear hubby needs more and more care. Keeps me busy. Not as much time for quilting these days but I still get some things done. Working on quilting a string quilt. I love picking out fabric, deciding on a pattern and piecing however the quilting part is not my favourite part. I even enjoy the quiet sitting down and hand stitching the binding down, more. It is taking three times as long to get…

Vintage 16" Dresden Plates

I have a pile of these beautifully worked Dreden Plates that will finish at 16".  They were appliqued to muslin feed sacks.  Some of the muslin still has faint printing on them.  It is quite sturdy (if I can use that as a descriptor) muslin.  The blocks are a little musty and smudged from storage and time.  Before I trimmed them, some had the old seam holes from where they were stitched into sacks in their previous life.  I bought them on ebay at a shamefully low price, so I don't know…

Hunter's Star Baby Quilt - the finish

This is what I decided to do with the baby quilt - mostly because of fabric availability and crunch time.  I appreciated all who commented and gave suggestions.  I made notes for next time.  I think it would have looked nice with a dark border as well.  I was using up scraps and made do with what I had.  

Stats:  8" blocks.  1" inner border, 3" outer border.  Machine quilted - domestic machine - in the ditch.  Cotton batt.  This has been washed and dried.  I don't prewash my fabrics…
