Quilt With Us

I added a few new pictures

   I have been pretty busy this year making quilts for cash, and quilting other quilter's quilts.  I have made several quilts for family and friends as well.  I still have quilts to make for 2 more of my three sons(I know...it sounds like an old sitcom), but I already have a good start with most of the blocks already made.  I just need to get them put together and quilted.

   Joe(my husband) and I have been making progress on my Quilting Cabin.  All of the wiring to 20 outlets and 10…

Quilting Cabin

It sure has been a long time since I got on here and posted anything.  Joe and I have finally found some time to work on my cabin.  It has all of the wiring run for 20 outlets inside, 12 lights inside, 2 grounded outlets outside, and 2 spotlights in front and back outside.  All of the insulation is in, and the vapor barrier is up.  The ceilings are up and primed, and attic flooring is in.  We have the paneling bought(inexpensive to be painted once it is up) and lighting fixtures.  We have…

I added some pictures.

I added some of my latest quilting projects just now.  I have made a lot more things, but didn't manage to get photos of all of them.  It seems that happens a lot lately.

It has been a LONG time.

Sorry it has been so long since I got on my page and said or did anything.  I have been pretty busy quilting and teaching quilting at JoAnn's in Waco.  I got a new longarm quilting machine.  It is a 26" Janome  Artistic quilter.  I love it.  I can quilt an entire king-size quilt in about 3 & 1/2 passes.  It runs so smoothly and the bobbins are huge, so they hold a lot of thread.  It only takes about 3 or 4 bobbins to do a whole quilt.  Love, love, love it.  Our 15-year-old granddaughter…

Comments on my new quilts.

Thanks to all of you great quilters who gave me such wonderful feedback on my quilts.  I have truly been enjoying reading each one of them.  I am glad that so many of you visited my page and viewed my quilts.  All of your comments were like warm hugs from good friends.  Thanks again.

   I loaded all of the best photos of my recent quilts.  I think there may actually be more.  I have everything I've made displayed as samples in the quilting store where I teach my classes.  Once in a while one slips by without being photographed. 

   Things have been really busy around here.  Our oldest son and his girlfriend just got custody of his two children, Layni (13) and Cody Lane (10).  They had to find a different place to live with enough bedrooms to go around.  They just…

New sewing machine

I got a new Baby Lock Ellageo Plus sewing machine a few weeks ago.  I love it.  It has a huge embroidery field.  It can use designs directly from your computer, from a pre-loaded memory card, or from a regular computer memory stick.  It has loads of built-in stitches, embroidery patterns, and special capabilities.  You can even sew letters without having to set up the embroidery module.  I just can't say enough about how much it will do and how great it is.

New quilts added

I just added all of my latest stuff to My Photos.  Each new item is a sample I made for the quilting class I teach each week.  I had great fun making the pieces and then even more fun teaching all of my students how to make them.  The project I am working on right now is a Block of The Month Quilt from the Quilter's Almanac book by Eleanor Burn's.  Each of the completed blocks have turned out well, but I… Continue

Guess What?

Things have been busy around here for me lately. I went to Paducah, Kentucky in September and took Eleanor Burn's teaching seminar from Eleanor herself. Sue Buchard was there teaching as well. It was great fun and I had a wonderful timelearning how to assembly line sew quilt blocks and to teach them. I am now a certified Quilt in a Day quilting instructor and have a job in Waco teaching quilting at my favorite quilting store, Waco Sew and Quilt. I have been as busy as the proverbial "one-armed… Continue

Birthday Wishes

I just wanted to thank everyone who sent me the wonderful Birthday wishes. So far the day has been pretty much like any other. I even ran our vending machine route this morning... It wasn't so bad, really. My middle son is a great help to me and he filled all of the machines while I just drove the ugly truck in honor of my birthday today. Things are really looking up though. My husband is taking me out to dinner and my favorite fabric store as soon as he gets home from work in about an hour.…

I finally got a Little Gracie...

On Wednesday, I went into my favorite quilting store to have them repair the cord to my foot pedal. (My son's blue heeler puppy ate about half of it when she was left unsupervised while we were all busy doing something else.) While I was in the store I noticed they had a Little Gracie frame set up at the back of the store. It just so happens that it was a used one another customer left there for sale. She had just finished setting it up & left. I was the first one to look at it. $499.00 for… Continue
