On the Road Again!

After a day in the Nashville TN area we have moved on.  While in the Nashville area, we traveled to Franklin TN and visited the Stitcher’s Garden.

On the Road!

My sister and I are on the road, visiting quilt shops, and we decided to go into Paducah to see the National Quilt Museum after about six different people told us we had to go there.  We got into town late afternoon, and after some last minute hurried phone calls, and my sister in law…

A Wall Quilt to Dye For!

I know how I want this quilt to look.  I have been looking for fabrics, and as far as I can tell, they have not been made yet.  So I will dye fabric!

Gotta Love Some Bunny!

This week’s sewing project was the bunny wall quilt made from the Brown Bunny Laser Cut Applique Kit.  After adding the borders to the appliqued panel, it’s time to figure out how to quilt it. 

We Are Blossoming!

After God and family, I love quilting and designing! And close behind those is my flowers. I miss them so in the winter, but without that time of waiting, I know I would not appreciate the spring flowers near enough. One of my very favorite spring flowers is the poppy. I just love the oranges,…

Meet Beeper the Maine Coon Cat

What a Whirlwind Month!

It has been a very busy month!  Just a month ago, we were contacted about a quilt using our “Scarlet Cardinal” kit.  Then the lady made contact again to inform us that the Circleville Goodtime Quilters (a great group, by the way!) were looking for a couple more vendors at their good sized show.  Now…

Life Lessons from a Mystery Quilt

The “Good Fortune” Mystery is finished!  Well, kind of…  Except for that one little square that I need to rip out…  now that it is sewn into the quilt.   That I didn’t even see until I took this picture.   And now that I have seen it, I can’t unsee it.   (Big sigh.)  And of course…

The Design Progresses… Slowly

My new design is still that… a design.  But progress IS being made!  I did make the prototype cut… a fancy way of saying that I have cut it out of poster board!  My designs fit together like a puzzle, and I am very picky about them fitting together perfectly.  When I first started making…
