I finished this quilt only a few days ago. It is probably my fastest work yet! The piecing is not difficult except for the two set in pieces in the lower right quarter of the quilt, but the free-motion machine quilting did take some time.
All the fabrics in the quilt…Continue
The Bees' Knees cardigan fit just the way I wanted: a little big, so she can wear it for a long time. The socks fit about the same way:
First I will start this post off by saying...YES, Pasquale is spoiled. Very very spoiled!! But I will also say that I do make most everything I do out of necessity. Since I've had Pasquale....going on 7 years, he's only had one jacket, and it was old and really small for him. So for over a year now I knew I wanted to make him a coat, and specifically a raincoat. He doesn't much like walking in the rain, so I thought a hood would be mandatory. With his big ears, who could blame him, I'm…Continue

I finally received the pics of my customer receiving her Newfie quilt.
For those of you who might be interested, I've added a new category to my web site called "Bloom Creek Quilts for Sale". I'm busting at the seams with quilts and must make room for my newer quilts, so I've decided to sell some of the quilt models that were used on my pattern covers. Happy quilting to all of you. . . .

I just received a new CT catalog and am quite taken with the Charlottesville collection. I especially like the "Stars on Point" kit. But I have a personal problem with square quilts, which this is. We use our quilts and since the human body is longer than it is wide, that is how I like our quilts to be. I am tempted to order the kit and some extra fabric to make a rectangular quilt, but am not sure how to do this. I'm sure this is simple to most of you, so I am asking for some…Continue
Fall is my favorite time of the year. The colors are fantastic. Not that summer is not colorful but Fall has colors of its own. I won the Block of the Month at our CVHQ Group in 2002 and gingerly put it in my trunk of UFO's. Well the trunk is almost overflowing and have decided that I must either finish all my UFO's or donate to someone who would. As I was deciding what to do with all of them I could not resist completing this one. Each person made 2 blocks. Wish that I would have written…Continue

I have not forgotten anyone here, I just don't get to post as often as I would like. Everything else seems to get in the way. I have been busy sewing quilts for Cancer Patients. I have now completed 3. Can't find the first one I delivered but here are the last two delivered on Tuesday.
Too long since I last posted. Guess life gets in the way. But, life is good.
Went to quilt camp Wed-Sun last week; went with 14 other quilters from my group, Scrappies. Great fun, laughs, food friendship. Plus, accomplished a good amount of sewing. Almost finished a tablerunner and started matching place mats. Made them with a method new to me-quilt as you go and are reversible. Coffee theme on one side and wine theme on other side. I like the method so much that I am doing a…Continue
Have been looking for civil war prints and wouldn't you know got an email this morning from CT. With Civil War Prints.
Our guild is doing block of the month on Civil War prints. Celebrating 1812 as next year will be 2012 and our counties around where I live are doing a project with quilts on barn to celebrate 2012.
So thank you CT.
I finally got motivated to start my next project the other day. Only problem is that it's not the one that I posted a picture of on my page. I was pulling out material the other day to start a project and found some of the ones that I had ordered from Connecting Threads a while ago. I ordered what is called the Burnt Orange in the mirage solids. Then I ordered more because I liked the color (No one really does that, do they?). Sense I had printed out numerous pictures of the quilts that I…Continue
I've been working on this piece since VQF and after many unsewing moments, I still haven't got it perfect.
So it will be what it will be!…Continue
