In a little while I will head out for our annual quilt group picnic. So far, no rain, but the heat index is 95 so we will probably end up eating indoors. Usually we grill out, and have outdoor games with prizes before heading indoors to our sewing machines. Here are a few pictures of things I've worked on the last few months. The table topper in the bright colors was from scraps left over from the quilt, and the result of a winter that just got too long and dreary. I haven't decided yet…Continue
You may know that the second Saturday in July is the Sisters Quilt Show. Since we live so close, we decided to go. I decided to take Veronika with me to get some photos, because she's a quilter, too. (She sat inside my purse most of the time.)…
I just saw that my art quilt for the Cherrywood Fabrics Bob Ross Challenge is one of the finalists and will go on tour for a year. Can you believe it? WOW WOW WOW There are so many awesome ones, I am very humbled and very excited.…Continue
I'm sitting here thinking it's been 11 years since I have been on QWU. I found out about this site through a flyer that came in the mail in 2008. I joined along with many others. Each day they posted members birthday until the members got to be too many to post. I have enjoyed viewing the the beautiful quilts of the many talented lady's on this site. And the many variations of of quilts I have seen. I was a new quilter when I joined QWU and was amazed seeing all this talent displayed. I…Continue
Hope everyone had a good 4th. Its finally cooling down here in south Alabama. Just checking in to see what everyone is up to? I worked on my heirloom quilt some over the weekend. Hope to hear from some of you...
During their last visit, the kids brought us a Kabocha squash (Japanese pumpkin) from their veggie share.
Like some of the rest of you, I too have gotten away from posting or doing much on here. Thanks Pam for the nudge.
For me I quit coming on a regular basis after my hubby retired, 6 years ago. Life dealt us some detours that were out of our control (for the most part). Started out 6 months after moving into our home I had a heart attack. No worries on that now as I am in better health than I have been for years. I have brought my chloresterol levels into normal ranges, all without…Continue
I wanted to give a shout out to Pam from New York for encouraging people to come back on & post to this forum. There are so many people who used to be very active on here, but who we never hear from any more. Always makes me wonder what happened. I know most of the individual groups I belong to are very inactive as well. Makes me feel sad. I know I need to do a better job of keeping in touch as well.
I’ve been meaning to post on here for quite awhile and with Pam’s nudging, I’m finally posting!
For starters today is our 30th wedding anniversary. A big milestone, and like with any marriage, we’ve had our ups and downs! We didn’t really celebrate today other than getting high speed internet installed at our house. We are in a rural area and were told by our old internet company that they will not be installing new lines…Continue

Hope your all sewing and quilting like mad...I keep up doing things more so in the fall/winter and in the summer we do our garden and put up food. we are suposto be getting peaches so we can get them canned.
I am now…Continue
Summer weather has finally made its way here. We had a very chilly spring. We've had good rains, which makes things nice and green. I made a couple of baby quilts and a wedding quilt over the winter months, along with some bowl cozies, a table runner, and a microwave potato bag. There is a partially finished baby quilt hanging on my design wall. It still needs a border. Just haven't gotten back to my sewing room recently. My goal over the past year or two has been to use only fabric…Continue
it’s been a long time.. Wow 7 years since I posted. I found out about Linda Sue Robertson passing away. We met on this website and she became a great friend to me through the years. We had many many phone calls. I’ll never forget when we met face to face in Nashville for the first time. So in honor of her memory I’m getting back on here to reconnect with some of the others I’ve met as well. Would love to catch up with you all, make some new friends and share what we all love the most.…Continue
I just read on FB that Linda Sue Robertson Passed away Friday Morning. I'm so sorry to hear this.
Better late than……
Thanks to Pam’s reminder, I thought I’d just check back and see when I last put up a blog post here – and to my shame, it was February 2017! How could that much time have passed? I may not have posted, but I check in here regularly and read whatever others post.
In the more than two years since I had a ‘show and tell’ here, I have been keeping very busy. My DH has been diagnosed with dementia, so we have begun that journey, and last Fall, I was…Continue
I usually only share on the Giftie forum, but I'll share here today. This is what I'm currently working on. It's a pattern from Sam Hunter of Hunter's Design Studio. These are the colors she made hers with and I just loved them so much I decided to use the same colors for a gift for my niece's wedding. This is just the top. I'm almost done quilting it. Now both of my daughters want me to make one for them too! This picture does not do the colors justice though.…Continue
We have been so fortunate to have a place to share and learn new things about our passion. We're all busy, but take some time to participate and help make this the site it use to be. This is not just about quilting, it is about sharing...so let's see some new faces and projects. Have a great day!
A huge Thank You to Connecting Threads for allowing us all these years to share!
