Throwback Thursday – Journal Quilts Week 3

For Throwback Thursday this week, we’re going back to the third week of my journal quilting project, June 9 – 15, 2011. This particular journal quilt is one that I could easily have made this week in 2015.  In 2011, My DH and I visited our favorite tea shop, Harney & Sons Teas in Millerton, […]

More Tile Work

I continued working on Tiles #1 this week, my first geometric tiles quilt.  I am now at the point of thinking about when to stop making tiles. I have no set size in mind and am waiting for the quilt to say, “I am big enough!” I think that we might be getting close.  Post […]

Throwback Thursday – Journal Quilt Week 2

Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday.  This week, we look back to the second week of my journal quilting project in early June 2011.  Though one of the things that happened during the week was “post vacation laundry,” I instead focused on the heat wave that week with the following journal quilt: I enjoyed […]

Tiles #1

My first geometric tiles-inspired quilt is underway.  I’ve been spending time at the sewing machine making Y seams like crazy and have the beginning of the quilt on the design wall:

Throwback Thursday

There’s this thing on Facebook where you post an old picture for what is called “Throwback Thursday.”  I don’t really think anyone needs to see old pictures of me, but I am adopting the idea to recreate some old posts from my previous blog.  When my life got too far out of hand, I let […]

One more mini

I’ve just finished the top for the third project in Sally Collins‘ Mastering Precision Piecing.  This one finished to about 15″ square and yet again, I have to thank Sally for her incredible instructions.  I have made a lot of Flying Geese over the last 15+ years of quilting and all of them have been […]

Started something new

The success that I had recently with precision piecing thanks to Judy Collins has inspired me to finally start a project that has been in mind for years. I have long wanted to create geometric tiles and have tried a few methods (batik, ink, etc.). I don’t love doing applique so I didn’t want to […]

Wild Quilting Weekend

The weekend before last found me holed up in a lodge with 19 other quilters just miles away from Keepsake Quilting for a few days of sewing and merriment. I hadn’t intended to spend the weekend working on stuff for my daughter, but I found a pattern at Keepsake from McCall’s that I just couldn’t […]

No Foolin’

It’s Spring Cleaning time in my studio!  (I wish that I could say that the same is true of the rest of my house, but c’est la vie!)  So, for the month of April, everything and I do mean EVERYTHING in my Etsy shop is 50% off.  I’m clearing things out to make space for […]
