Fox Wholecloth Quilt Progress

One of my big goals for the year is to make quilts for the bed in the Wabi-Sabi Overland expedition truck that my husband and I are building. I have been nervously anticipating making the second quilt, and my husband and I just sat down together to discuss design and make plans for how I am going to approach...

Flags for Sue

On Wednesday, Alycia shared that her Quilts of Valor group is collecting flag blocks to honor Sue, a QOV member who recently passed away. The tribute that Alycia wrote about Sue is moving, and I wanted to get up and start sewing before I finished reading the post. While I had a few other things I needed to accomplish first,...

Client Quilting {Wayward Transparency Quilt}

A few weeks ago a local friend dropped off a quilt for me to quilt. She used my Wayward Transparency pattern, and together we selected coordinating Aurifil thread colors for the different fabrics in the quilt top: 2360 (Chocolate), 2330 (Light Chestnut), and 2311 (Muslin). Which left me to ponder just how I was going to quilt it! Tish from...

Magnolia Mystery Quilt Finish!

I knew that it was time to finish my Magnolia Mystery quilt, but until I sat down to write this post, I didn't realize that I finished Cheryl's (Meadow Mist Designs) Magnolia Mystery Quilt in January. In May I ordered and received backing fabric, and this week I had time to finish it. Earlier this year, my oldest niece told...

Sunset Mini Mini Quilt {Patreon Reward}

I had two Patrons unlock rewards in May. One of my Patrons unlocked a mini quilt and I was able to send her a quilt that was in my stock that I know she will love and appreciate. The second Patron unlocked a mini mini quilt, and other than asking me to refrain from pastel colors, I had free...

Snowballs {Murrina | Stash Statement}

My progress on the Murrina quilt continues to be rather slow, but hopefully I can pick up the pace this week a bit and at least get the quilt top and backing ready to quilt. Wish me luck! I have transformed all the improv blocks I shared in my last progress post into the snowball blocks that the pattern calls for. I...

Still Sewing Along {Murrina | Stash Statement}

I really like improvisation, but I am not the quickest when doing it myself. I am happy to say that I have all my improv blocks for the Murrina quilt from Stash Statement pieced together and my sewing area has been tidied back up. Whew, that brings me a lot of peace of mind! Up next will be seeing how...

Backing for Magnolia Mystery Quilt

For years, my oldest niece said her favorite color was black (because black is "all the colors"). Just before I went back to visit in April, I heard her say that Pink and Purple are her favorite colors, something that she maintained during our visit ("...but I still like black, too!"). I know that my nieces have lots of...

I just crested over the halfway point; I have 16 blocks complete and 10 more to piece. I am taking a different approach to the improv panels than is presented in the book because I really wanted...

Murrina – Getting Started {Stash Statement}

I came home from Tennessee without my mobile devices (thanks to my parents, I received them last last Thursday) and with a cold. On Friday, I decided to take it easy, and despite my best efforts of going slow, this bug has decided to linger. My weekend consisted of lots of naps, hot tea, and additional rest. That being...
