Latest baby quilt

This is the most recent "stash reduction" project. It might take me awhile if I only use them up in baby quilts.  Individually, the fabrics are cute and go well together, but overall, this one isn't my favorite - not sure why.  Hopefully someone will love it.  It is 42" x 42".  Machine quilted (poorly, but we do what we can). It is backed with pink flannel. …

Expanding a quilt top

I made a buckeye beauty for a twin bed.  I thought it needed special quilting that is beyond my skill level.  So it sat.  The kid it is for recently graduated and purchased a queen bed for his new apartment.  So I'm redoing the borders and expanding it to fit a queen.

Getting old is NOT fun.

It's a dull day here in the East and I plan to hit the sewing machines as soon as I can get the gumption to get out of this chair, and get dressed. Tues. I walked across town to vote at the elementary school. Yesterday I washed all the floors and rearranged some furniture and today I haven't got enough energy to pull a hat off my head. Old age is NOT my friend. I'm going to a church Supper tonight. I thought it was yesterday. After I got my floors done I took a shower and changed my clothes…

FYI Thimble sizing


There are several ways you can measure your finger to order the right size thimble to fit you just right. The thimble sizes are based on US ring sizes.

Measure the finger at the base of the nail on the finger that you want to wear the thimble. For taller thimbles, measure between the base of the nail and your first…

Is anyone familiar with this pattern?

I purchased this vintage quilt top at an antique mall two years ago. It has 36 blocks in various colors. The stitching is excellent! I've been unsuccessfully trying to find the name of the pattern or see other examples. Any ideas?

Skinny fingers...

I have been dieting since Thanksgiving. My 45th nursing school reunion is in the Fall. Just my luck, the weight came off my fingers!!! I can't keep my trusty ole thimble on. It keeps flying off. I scotched taped it on! 

What thimble do you find works best for you. I still love the metal ones...probably cause, that's the kind my grandma used and taught me to use.

We have had some spectacular sunsets this…

High Fiber—Inside Out

It was a short week, due mostly to a medical procedure, part of my preventative care. (That's the "inside" part.) However, that's over, and all is well.…

Wow! Has it been that long?

Hi all! 

Looking at the last time I posted I was shocked to see it’s been almost 2 years! I do pop in from time to time to see what everyone has been working on! 

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and finding time to do some quilting!

One of my latest quilts I quilted for a customer a few months ago! …
