Stitch and Flip Pressing Tip

Because I do not pre-wash my fabric, this happened to me all the time, and I got frustrated enough by the undersized units that I avoided patterns with stitch and flip piecing. When I wrote the pattern for Star Pulse...

Frost Filigree {Color Bleed}

There are several reasons I haven't been making progress on my Frost Filigree quilt top. One is that I've been busy behind the scenes working on a few fun things (a collaboration that I'll be able to share with you next week and finalizing the design for my next quilt along - Quilting Jetgirl Patrons will get the details...

2024 Quilting Q1 Check In

I wanted to wait until we had officially made it through the first three months of 2024 before writing up my first quarterly check in post for the year. Pretty much entirely due to Project Quilting, I'm feeling like the year started off with a lot of productivity and finishes. I suppose it's going to be interesting to see...

March Stash Enhancement

When I received my print order from Superbuzzy in February and realized that I didn't do much to add to my VERY depleted yellow print stash, I pretty much immediately went back and placed another fabric order. This time, I ordered from Stash Fabrics. This fabric went on a JOURNEY you guys, and I am so happy it is finally...

Quilted Wrist Cuff {Step-by-Step Photo Tutorial}

After quickly making a quilted wrist cuff last week for the Project Quilting 15.5 prompt of Wearables, I slowed down this weekend and made a second version.

Quilted Rainbow Wrist Cuff {Project Quilting 15.5}

Whew, this week's prompt for Project Quilting stumped me for a little bit: Wearables. RULE ONE: your project must be wearable, or have been made from previously worn items, or have another connection to clothes, shoes and fashion accessories. I still wanted to make a quilted object, but I don't really make wearable things. Then I looked down at my left...

People and Connections {QuiltCon 2024}

Yes, the quilts are a huge draw at QuiltCon, but for me, the main reason I attend Quilt Con is the opportunity to connect in person with other quilters. It's all about the people! A big part of my planning to attend QuitCon was spending time scheduling to meet with people for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and knowing when...

Quilts That Caught My Eye {QuiltCon 2024}

I know I walked the entire QuiltCon show this year, but even with two more days, I'm not sure I would have been able to take in all of the quilts in the way that they truly deserved.
