Vacationing in MT, going to Glacier and into Canada

Posted on June 7, 2013 at 7:23pm 9 Comments

We arrived in Kalispell MT or just south of there and I have been looking online for quilt shops and saw the below listing: Is this THE Judy Niemeyer? Paper piecing queen?

Judy Niemeyer Quilting, 444 Margrethe Rd, Kalispell, Mt 59901

OMG...I am going to have to check it out. I'm so excited, I have just really started learning to paper piece, and to see some of her work would be amazing.

Also heading to Glacier National Park and into Canada...anything in particular we should see… Continue

Big Snow 15.5" & Sewing

Posted on March 27, 2013 at 5:17am 8 Comments

Sunday we received the second biggest snowfall of my life ~15.5"!  It was crazy deep (espicially with 4' drifts & higher in some areas),…


Can you hear, can you hear the thunder? Snow that is!

I have only heard thunder snow one other time in my life and the second time was this morning. DH & I both said, is that thunder & both ran to the living room window. Amazing...couldn't see our neighbors which is just across the field & generally it's no problem to see that far. However, we are in the middle of a winter storm warning. Looks like we have about 7" already and it's suppose to snow another 6 to 8 hours. Will go out about 2 to take an official reading !

Border "Panic" Options

I will first place a purple border no matter what border option I choose.

Border options are as follows:

Bottom: this was my original option. I think it compliments the focal block design! (I like it the best!…


Borders "panic" update! Hope this makes sense!

So I worked over the weekend on some border blocks...However, I'm not feeling the "vibe" with what I came up with!

Multiple problems:

I don't think I have enough fabric left to make "mathcing blocks" around the…

Hello Georgia, I see that Brighton is not too far from St. Louis. And here in central IL, Canton is only about 30 miles so-west of Peoria. And Knoxville about the same distance west of Peoria.

Yes, the colors are really beginning to pop around here too.  DH and I will be heading into MO at the end of this week for a little R & R. I imagine that we will enjoy some beautiful scenery.

How are you doing on your jelly roll quilt now?  I have never done one. I quilted a small baby quilt on my reg. machine a couple weeks ago.  I had hand basted it pretty close and didn't have much trouble with wrinkles. But I don't think I will try anything larger.  It's just too much fabric to manuever around.  Good luck on yours anyway, and I hope everyones hints will be helpful.

Thanks for your kind words about the lattice quilt. The original pattern was done on a light background but I like dark backgrounds for quilts. I have a hard time working with lights somehow- I just love color.. 

The pattern is called Sunset and its from clotilde - you can find it here: http://www.clotilde.com/detail.html?prod_id=7886

It is all pieced - if you want to see what one block looks like  you can see one on my current blogpost that you can find here: http://quiltmomsjourney.blogspot.com/ 

The block is not made with a template but involves some different shape cutting- one piece that forms the corners looks like the end of a blunt arrow-the block is made with four  triangular sections and the first is joined with a simple Y seam. It sounds more complex than it is- Once you figure out how it works it goes together very quickly. The stripes are strip pieced together and then cut into rectangles. Hope that this info is helpful rather than confusing. 
Regards, Anna

the dotted lines are where you cut the paper pattern apart...you leave at least 1/4 inch of fabric hanging over the dotted edge and when you get all the pieces paper pieced you then sew the parts back together lining up the dotted lines (I leave the paper on the back of the block until all steps are complete so I don't sew an arm to the forehead by accident...I learned this the hard way)...once you have your lovely frog done and trimmed as needed to make him/her square you can remove the paper from the back...U usually press the block at least once while the paper is still in place, seems to hold it together better...

I know that when I make another Blended Trip quilt...it will be easier than the Blended Ocean Trip, as I was dealing with vision problems!  Just happy that the Cataracts are fixed and the results of this quilt weren't altered by my lack of sight.

There is also a group here on CT for paper piecing lovers! ;0)

Thanks Georgia!  I have some of her books, and I just love how she gives you guidance on what sizes to cut your pieces instead of just guessing and hacking up your fabric with too much waste!

Hi Georgia, I thought your you quilt was a Stack and Whack. The guild I belong to will be doing a stack and whack in July. I do want to make another attempt at making one. I know what I did wrong the first time so it should be easier this time around. Yours is so pretty.

I took a peek at all of your photos and they are wonderful. I also love birds and I have a pretty nice picture of my finches on my page. Thank you for all of the beauty.

Thanks, Georgia! I have a Mac laptop and this is what I get: £, but I'll try on my windows desktop later! Fun! Learn something new everyday!
