Castle Turret

Another quilt completed in two months. Something must be wrong with me. Although I tend to do things in spurts so you may not see me again for months after this. lol Anyway this quilt is from my usual stash of designs.

Lotsa Hearts

This is an old design from my stash, 1989 to be exact. I counted 27 designs I have left to complete. I have pledged not to draw any new ones until those get done. At the rate I'm going it'll be 10 or so years before I get done. Ouch!

Nazca Star and Cross

I have been away from the quilting floor for awhile. This design isn't exactly my own, but comes from the desert of Nazca. So I was a bit lazy in the design department sheesh! lol

Projects On Time

Hi, Well I haven't been posting for awhile because the projects I was working on had a hard fast deadline. Who has time to take pictures and updates a blog when a deadline looms? I did get done with both of them just in time!

Here's the Walking…

Walking Wheel Revisit


Yup it's been awhile, but the real world calls every once in awhile... I have decided to revisit a quilt design. I know I know I have a little rule about redoing designs, but I have decided that my tie quilts can be redone since they are not wall worthy. I am redoing the Walking…

The Square Spiral  is done! The longest part was the quilting/embroidering the top. The entire process and whatnot is here at Square…

Spiral Square peek

I started working on another project almost before I got done with the other one. This one was extremely easy to design and put together. The quilting on top is what is taking forever. I'm embroidering the whole top in some form or fashion. It depends on the square. This one is called Spiral Square. Here's a closeup of what I worked on today. I love how…

Fallen Log Cabin

I'm just doing projects like crazy. At the moment I have time, so I'm taking it to the full advantage. Here's the latest. Since I don't do conventional patterns I did a twist on the Log Cabin that I see all over the place. 

The link with full details is Fallen Log Cabin.  My daughter says I should have made the rectangle/wood bits smaller for a…

A Round Halloween

Here's another little embroidery project. It took one day less than a week to complete. It's a little odd and bit early for Halloween, so that's most of the reason why I called it 'A Round Halloween'.  The original design is about 20 years old. The border of the odd shaped jar is not part of the original design, but I added it to take care negative…

Everything Under the Sun

I guessed it would take about 2 weeks to get this one done. I was 2 days over! 

I'm not sure this is my best creation, but it falls into the interesting category anyway. 

Here's the blogpost: Everything Under the Sun with the process and details.…

Tracks in the Garden

Hi, Sorry it's been awhile. I spent most of the summer outdoors with family working on all sorts of projects. We had lots of fun. Now I can get back to the sewing board.

Anyway I just finished a quick little embroidery project.

Raindrop Kaleidoscope-It's DONE!

I finished up the Raindrop Kaleidoscope today. That includes washing, taking pics and updating the blog. I do believe I will stick to my own tried and true methods of creating my quilts. I tried a QAYG method and it ended up causing more headaches than my usual modus operandi. Ah well it's done and presentable. Yay

Continuing Raindrop Kaleidoscope and Bloggers Quilt Festival

Sorry it's been awhile. Spring has arrived and that means quilting gets sidelined until the planting is done and lawn mowed a couple times. I'm also on the job hunt. Anyway the planting is done, school's out and resumes submitted for awhile. Looks like everyone is busy too. Here's where I'm at now. I got the first round done at least.…

A Pause in the Action

Here's how far I got with Raindrop Kaleidoscope. Page up and down to see more. 

Well this is about as far as I can go for now. I need to keep the living room clear for guests coming in a week or two and I know this project will take longer than that. I set up sewing in the living room on the floor under the fireplace…
