Babsie {Mini Quilt Finish}

In loving memory of Babsy, Barbara Nieters Buchen. The overlapping circles at the bottom represent the connection between generations and the free-floating orange peel at the top is the separation felt in losing Babsie, the last of her generation in our families. During a week spent with family, I began hand quilting the piece in the evenings as we remembered Grandma:...

The Giving Tree Mini Quilt

One year ago on my blog (on January 4th, 2016 to be exact) I announced I had created a Quilting Jetgirl Patreon account as a way to get some support to help me reach some goals I had for my blog and Quilting Jetgirl business. I was able to get enough support to quickly meet my main two goals: migrate...

Quilt the Life Into It {Mini Quilt}

I am really thrilled to get to share this mini quilt finish with you today. I agreed to another private mini quilt swap with Renee @Quilts of a Feather earlier this year, and the ground rules were that I was to make something and use free motion quilting for her and she was to make something and use straight...

Ombre Mini Quilt Swap

I recently participated in a mini quilt swap with a small group of quilting friends. I occasionally get to travel to visit with my husband's family, and while I am there, I have been fortunate enough to get together with this group of friends for dinner. It is only once every 3 or 4 months, but the joy of sitting...

Life: Ups and Downs

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw my whirlwind make last Wednesday. Once again, I found myself in a sewing / quilting lull while I was waiting to work on some larger, long term projects. Since many of the large projects I have been working on recently have been for others, I wanted to challenge myself...

Odd and Ends {WiP Wednesday}

I have accomplished a few things recently that I haven't blogged about, so I thought I would just put some odds and ends together today along with my current WiP. While this is the last thing I finished recently (umm, this morning), it is the project I am the most giddy about. My niece is going to turn 1 year old...

Cocoa Leaf Mini Quilt

I am going to be working on the design of a queen size quilt based on a beautiful multi-colored stained cocoa leaf light fixture. Thankfully, I have access to this fixture in person, and I was able to take my Kona color card over to color match earlier this week. I particularly love the strong lines of the veins in...
