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...

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...

Project Quilting 15.4 – Hourglass

I was ready yesterday for the Project Quilting 15.4 prompt, and I was excited enough about it that I might have bit off more than I can finish before I need to head to QuiltCon this week. The prompt is Hourglass, and I pulled out my solid scraps and got busy. It's almost 10pm here, and I stopped sewing at...

Frost Filigree {Cut Fabric}

I spent the afternoon and evening on Valentine's day working with my fabric pull for Frost Filigree and cutting everything I need to get started piecing. Knowing how little I enjoy cutting fabric, I started by cutting out the background fabric. About halfway through getting the background fabric cut, I needed to pause to go on a walk with a...

Inside Out {Project Quilting 15.3}

I feel like the Project Quilting Season 15 prompts keep getting better each week! The theme this week is Inside Out: Some part of your project must thematically or literally be inside out. I have honestly been thinking about a project that exposes the seams for years (apparently since February 2015 when I fell in love with the backside of the...

Sky Color Mini {Project Quilting 15.2}

When I took a look yesterday afternoon, I was very excited by the Project Quilting 15.2 challenge theme: Sky Color. We are to take inspiration from the colors of the sky, but exclude or use less than 10% of the usual blue. I knew *exactly* what photograph I wanted to use as my inspiration: I snapped a quick photograph of...
