2018 Goals

2018 is here and that means it is time to think about goals for the year. I have a list of quilts that I want to get done, and of course, there’s the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge, but I received a gift from dear friends that perfectly sums up what I hope to […]

2017 Year in Review

I started a new tradition last year of writing a year-in-review blog post after I ran across some others doing it.  I find the process of taking stock of the entire year to be a good reminder of just how much I actually did accomplish. American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge – I tackled the […]

Summer of Scraps Week 6

The photo I showed when I first started the Summer of Scraps project only represented a portion of the scraps that I have. I also have a bin full of bits and pieces of batik fabrics:So, this week’s project, which was also a UFO on my list for the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge, […]

#APQResolution – French Doors

I feel like I’m finishing up a school year and getting ready for summer because I have been finishing stuff up like crazy. Last week, I finished quilting “Rajah Quilt Revisited” which was a 2016 Block of the Month that I started in January.  This week, I finished a quilt that had been in the […]

#APQ Resolution – Rajah Quilt Revisited

This was supposed to be my finished quilt for March for the American Patchwork & Quilting 2017 UFO Challenge, but it needed to be completely quilted and bound so I’m happy to have it completed by June. This quilt was the 2016 Block of the Month from The Quilt Show, called “Rajah Quilt Revisited.”  It’s […]

#APQ Resolution – May

Many of my UFOs for the American Patchwork & Quilting’s 2017 UFO Challenge have been stacking up because they’re ones that require a lot of work. March’s project was to quilt an entire quilt and I’m still working on that. April’s project was the same. But May’s project was an easy one to get done […]

#APQResolution Project for February

I’m happy to say that this month’s UFO for the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge has only been a UFO for a year (or maybe two?) and even better yet, it’s something that I made for myself. It’s a travel sewing kit from the tutorial on the “lots of pink here” blog. Now that […]

Creative Play Date

Happy Valentine’s Day!  It’s also Creative Play Date Day. I’m not feeling very creative today because I am still getting over the plague that my daughter brought home from school so I decided I would just play today. For me that means working on personal quilts rather than professional ones, like this one: This is […]

Off to a Good Start

January is not even close to over yet and I already have my UFO completed for the American Patchwork & Quilting UFO Challenge. #apqresolution I had one of these place mats made already so I only needed to finish three. And, it’s only January and I already have an item ready for my guild’s show […]
