Time Expands {Project Quilting 15.4}

I don't remember when or where I picked up this mantra, but when things get busy, I repeat to myself, "Time expands when needed." I was really inspired by the Project Quilting 15.4 prompt (hourglass) and my solid scraps, and I managed to piece, quilt, and bind a 35" x 45" quilt in under 48 hours. I'll be heading...

Bird on a Nest Placemat {PQ15.1 Bird House}

The first prompt for Season 15 of Project quilting was shared on Sunday, January 7th: Bird House. Sunday was a 20 hour travel day for me, so I remembered to look up the prompt sometime mid-day on Monday.

Quilted, Insulated Passthrough Cover

My husband is working hard on the interior of another custom travel vehicle. This time, we're working with a MUCH smaller vehicle than the one we traveled in for 5 months in 2019: a JLU Wrangler. It used to be a 4-door Jeep, but he cut off the back end and converted it into this: As the interior is starting...
