Relay For Life

Well, the elephant baby quilt I was going to make got put on hold.  I was asked to make a Memory Quilt for Relay For Life to be auctioned off at our event we had on the 13th.  My friend Gena and I had never done a Relay quilt before so this was a new experience for both of us. Gena is the main designer of our…

High Fiber—The Skies of Roswell

It's Like the Skies of Roswell! Except this is a different kind of UFO.

My Yei Figures Bag is finished except for adding the beads to the necklaces and bolos.

I decided to line it with some nice quilting fabric. The lining…

High Fiber—UFO Sightings

It's another week for UFOs. Janet's Sipalu Bag is finished!

Janet started this bag in 2008. She thinks of herself as a quilter, not a knitter, but she has the talent, learns new techniques quickly and has a…

High Fiber—Cold and Colds, Mishaps and Repairs

It's been a hard week in the mountains of Utah. The weather was part of it. 

That was taken Wednesday. We had several more inches over the weekend. I had to turn off the alerts on my weather app, because it kept waking me up at night and annoying me during the daytime. (As if I couldn't just…

High Fiber—Winter Already?

On Wednesday a snowstorm hit. Not some wimpy October snow that melts as soon as it hits the ground, no!

This was a regular, full-blown snowstorm.

We went out early in the day for a get-together with friends we met during the presidential campaign last year. We went to Kneader's at Kimball Junction for breakfast and caught up on…

High Fiber—Cold Weather, Good Life!

Snow arrived in Park City last week. That's Sunny, checking out the snow on the front deck.

We usually get a light snowfall in September. This year it was unusual, though. We had five  days of  light to medium snowfall with some accumulation on rooftops and shady areas. It's gone now, but the temperatures have stayed…

The second bobbin is on the wheel.

In Bunny Suit progress, the right leg is done. The left leg has been cast on and a couple of inches finished.…

Bedroom Finished, All But the Shams

As all of you know, when you make something or buy something, one things leads to another and another and another.  After finishing my block swap quilt that is on my bed in the picture, then I wanted to put it on my bed but nothing matched.  I asked my son if he would paint my bedroom and put beadboard on the…

One Year Later

It's hard to believe it has been a whole year since I started my quilt project.  I have been quilting one quilt from each block in my favorite quilt book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". 



 I started this project so quilters would have a place to go to see what the blocks would look like when sewn together.  On many of the quilt blocks you see a different design than just the single block.  I have had a hard time visualizing what the quilt would look like just from seeing the…

A Reality Check

I love quilt making so much that I do not realize how much money and time a quilt really cost. I have been asked lately to make some baby quilts and lap quilts. When I state the cost it is not with excitement to them. I just made a quilt for my daughter in law for her brother for Christmas. I gave him the receipts which totaled $90 for supplies we still have labor to add on to it. This quilt is only lap size and took 20 hours to make.

The real reality check comes when I would really…

New website and facebook

Just wanted to let my friends on Quilt With Us know that I have begun a new longarm custom quilting website and page on Facebook as I venture into quilting for customers on a more regular basis.  It features work I have done in the last year or two and includes baby quilts, tee shirt quilts, traditional quilts, heirloom quilting, and quilted wall hangings.

Hope you can take a moment to check it out.  I include some pages with hints on how to prepare a quilt for sending to a longarm…

Happy 160th Birthday to Singers

I just read an article about the 160th anniversary of the Singer sewing machines. Sewing machines had been around for a while, but in 1852 Isaac Merritt Singer adapted an existing machine with changes that made it practical for home use.

Mr. Singer’s new sewing machine design was unveiled at the 1855 World’s Fair in Paris. Singer also introduced…
