Stair Skirt {Finished Quilt}

I am so, so happy with my finished stair skirt! In my excitement to complete it last week, I took exactly zero progress photos. Oops! I really wanted to bind the stair skirt with bias binding, and even with bias binding, the inner small circle was a bit of a challenge to sew by machine to the front of the...

Irish Autumn {Q4 Just for Fun, Finished Quilt}

After sharing progress on my Q4 Just for Fun quilt last week, I was excited to keep the momentum going. In fact, I was so excited that in only one more evening of sewing, I was able to get all the blocks pieced... ... and I even got the entire quilt top sewn together! The pieced quilt top measured 35" inches...

Star Pulse Bonus Quilt

As part of the Star Pulse quilt along, there will be bonus HSTs created during the piecing process. At the end of the quilt along, I will offer a suggested pattern and way to put those bonus HSTs to immediate use in a quilt top. So today, I want to share the Star Pulse throw size bonus quilt that...

Cloudy Night Sky {Finished Quilt}

Cloudy Night Sky is finished and officially submitted for consideration to QuiltCon! I have no idea how many total hours I spent making the quilt, but I know I spent over 40 hours on the quilting alone. You probably want to see finished photographs, but I do love to share about the nerdy stuff, so first I am going...

Signal Trace {Finished Quilt}

My third quarter "just for fun" quilt really brought me a lot of joy over the last month as I worked on it. I was able to finish up the quilting last weekend, and just like I had hoped, I was able to leave in my basting pins. So the first thing I needed to do after quilting was get...

Diatom Postage Stamp Throw {Finished Quilt}

I am squeaking in with my finished Postage Stamp (setting) Throw (size) version of the Diatom quilt that I made during the Diatom quilt along today. Today is the final day that blocks, pieced quilt tops, or finished quilts can be added to the Diatom Final Linkup. Thank goodness I got it done just in time! My husband and I...

Somerville Circle {Just Two Charm Pack Quilts Book Hop}

Sometimes I'm amazed at how well (and for how long) I can keep a secret; I have been looking forward to today for a little over 16 months. When Cheryl Brickey (Meadow Mist Designs) asked me to make a quilt for her second book, Just One Charm Pack Quilts, I was tickled and I really enjoyed getting to make...

Dripping Stars and Holiday Pattern Bundle

Behind the scenes I was able to sneak in writing and testing a new quilt pattern between finishing Congruence and making the Sunrise Sherbet quilt. Today, I am really happy that I can share that quilt and pattern, Dripping Stars, with you. And while the individual Dipping Stars digital quilt pattern is available for sale today in my pattern...

Congruence {Finished Quilt}

I had planned to have Congruence finished about a month ago, but life had other plans. I'm grateful that it's complete, and I'm really pleased that the extra time I needed to take forced me to think a little bit more about the quilting plan. I'm absolutely thrilled with this finish! After quilting and trimming the quilt square, Congruence measures...

Space Arcade {Finished Quilt}

I am really thrilled with my first Night Garden bonus quilt finish, Space Arcade. For a quick recap, I made the queen size version of Night Garden for my sister- and brother-in-law. From the queen size version of Night Garden, there are enough large scraps created in piecing the quilt top that I also designed 2 additional throw size quilts...

Night Garden {Finished Quilt}

My hands are happy to say that I finished hand binding the queen size Night Garden quilt and it is complete! A 90" wide by 100" tall quilt was much, much larger than my husband could reasonably hold up. Some friends stopped by at the end of last week, and I was musing about what I could do to hold...

Project Quilting 14.6 {Conquer a Fear}

The final Project Quilting Season 14 prompt is "Conquer a Fear". I sat and pondered the prompt for a while on Sunday when the prompt was released. I'm not particularly afraid of any quilting techniques, piecing methods, or colors. Though I used to be hesitant about curves and using pink or brown, so I am definitely proof that the...

Project Quilting 14.5 {Not a Square}

When the prompt came out on Sunday for Project Quilting, Sew Not a Square, I knew immediately what I wanted to do: I wanted to create a baby sized quilt using improv curves. I went to my scraps and pulled out my solids that ranged from red/orange through teal. I immediately fell in love with the idea of the quilt...

Board & Batten QAL {Finished Quilt}

I have been juggling more projects at once than I am totally comfortable with. So today, it's really exciting for me to get to move one of my work in progress projects to the completed column. Let's start with some details! I used my walking foot to quilt zig-zag lines that echo the angles of the HSTs, and I used...

Project Quilting 14.4 {A Novel Project}

This week for Project Quilting, we were tasked with being inspired by a book we have read. When I worked full time as an engineer, I was an avid reader. I would devour books in the evenings as an escape from the stresses of the work day. I have fond memories of long hours spent in a bath soaking...

What is Love? {Finished Baby Quilt}

As part of the What is Love? block collaboration, the designers all tested one another's blocks. We were paired up to provide feedback for 2 other designers, but there were so many fantastic designs that I kept sewing until I ran out of the fabrics I selected. https://www.instagram.com/p/CoQUuYfDQTt/ In addition, I sewed up 2 more versions of my contribution to the...

Project Quilting 14.3 {54-40 or Fight}

When the prompt for PQ 14.3 came out on Sunday (54-40 or Fight), I was putting the finishing touches on a quilt that I will share with you next week. I wasn't sure I'd have time to participate, and the prompt's reference of the traditional 54-40 or Fight quilt block didn't immediately spark anything for me. But it was...

I was ready on Sunday when the second Project Quilting prompt was published. The number one goal this week is that some shade of pink must dominate the project. Well, off to my pink print bin I went... I picked out 9 prints from my bin that graduate from light to dark in value. Then I paired them with a...
