Quilt With Us

Kristin's Blog (8)

Okay, Okay! So I'm done already!

Okay, so I admit it, I've been a complete loser! After being harrassed, er, I mean ENCOURAGED, by numerous other employees/relatives (not naming any names here), as well as a few QWU members, I'm FINALLY getting around to posting my completely finished Southern Stars Quilt. So without further ado......

I have to confess, it's been done for a few months now, but I've been such a slacker and neglected to post the finished product for all to see. I… Continue

So much for my sewing binge

I really had the best of intentions this weekend. I picked out a really cute fall tabletopper pattern from an old Heather Mulder Peterson book, laid out all my fabric and began cutting. Then my dear hubby went out and picked the rest of the apples off our tree, came in with three buckets and said "What are we going to do with all of these, Hon?" You see, I'd already canned 47 jars of applesauce from said tree two weeks ago. Not to mention the 38 jars of peaches and 34 jars of pears I've also… Continue

Oh whatever shall I quilt?

The kids are back in school, and I've finally put the house back together. I even finished up another old UFO! (Yay me!) So now I'm itching to make something NEW. I'm sitting here staring at the Hearth and Home FQ samper fabric I bought, wondering what I can make that I can get done in a weekend, so it doesn't turn into yet another UFO. Hmmm....maybe a table topper? Just imagining the possibilities makes me almost giddy! I know once I get started on whatever it is, my family won't get dinner… Continue

Kristin Sews Karen's UFO

As some of you know, Karen, our fearless and fabulous VP here at Connecting Threads, hosts our online UFO group. Over the past few months Karen has been tackling all her much beloved unfinished projects and putting the rest of us at CT to shame. However, she also has had a few UFO's that she doesn't love quite so much. A few of them ended up in our free box at work. Since I mostly work from home, I'm usually not privy to all the goodies that end up in there, which means that by the time I dig… Continue

Confessions of a Quiltaholic

So, since I don't already have nearly enough ufo's I've decided I HAVE to make yet another sampler quilt! While at my quilt group, I saw a GORGEOUS sampler quilt by Fons and Porter, which our fearless leader, Barbara Perkins, is going to make with a bunch of our other quilting friends. She invited me to join in, and when I saw the photo, I decided I HAD to have it! Hmmm...two quilt groups is really not much, is it? Personally, I think that's rather modest. Oh, but I forgot to count the Southern… Continue

Creating UFO's

After a wonderfully lazy weekend with my family, I'm back into the swing of things. I have so far managed not to catch my husband's cold (knock on wood). I'm now trying to finish up a few design projects for CT. I love designing new quilts and I get truly excited everytime I see a new fabric collection that's been designed by our fabulous fabric designers! We have a couple of new collections coming out soon that I'm especially drooling over, and I can't wait for them to get printed! Guess where… Continue

Sew much to do, and so little time!

Wow! It's so exciting to see how Quilt With Us is growing so rapidly. I hope I can keep up with all of you. After a long and wonderful Christmas break, the kids are all FINALLY back in school today, so I can get caught up on my work and maybe even get the house cleaned! Some of my fellow staff members have been bugging me about posting pictures of my work for all of you to see. It's a big joke around the office how I never show my projects to anyone.… Continue

Happy Holidays! The best is yet to come

I'm so excited to share my tiny little piece of the quilting world with all of you. As the holiday season approaches, I look forward to a new year and new motivation to get my many unfinished projects done. Because heaven knows it's not going to happen before Christmas! And I'm hoping Karen's UFO group will help me with that. :) I also can't wait to get started on our new block of the month group. I'm hosting the first project, featuring Paula Stoddard's Southern Stars pattern, sewn in our very… Continue
