October Meadow Mystery & WIPs

**Don’t miss out on information on Tiled Parquet – my debut design for Quilt Theory – and its associated giveaway!** The giveaway is now closed. I started writing this blog post as "November..." instead of October! Eek! I have a lot to get done before the end of the year, and there is no sense in writing off the last of...

Stash Bee Signups Open & WIP

First, I want to remind everyone that signups for the 2016 Stash Bee open today, so visit the Stash Bee blog for details on how to sign up! On Monday, I started quilting the Red Herring quilt. I have known all along that I wanted to go with a very dense matchstick quilting for it, and I am over halfway...

WiP Wednesday {9/30/2015}

Progress! I had originally planned to piece the quilt backing for my husband's Love Letters quilt top last Wednesday, but apparently the universe had other plans for me. I got sucked into the vortex of the #MiniMiniQuiltSwap through Instagram instead. It has been fun, but I really am excited to finish this quilt for my patient (!) and loving...

WiP Wednesday {9/23/2015}

It feels so good to be home and in my sewing room again. I have a mini quilt that I can't wait to share with you on Friday, and I feel excited to have several projects simmering right now. It has been a while since I have participated in Work in Progress Wednesday. Perhaps as long as I have...

Cocoa Leaf Medallion Quilt {WiP}

After finishing the piecing and applique for the center of the Cocoa Leaf Medallion Quilt, the next step in the process was to expand the quilt top out to its final, over-sized queen dimensions. It now measures 103-inches wide by 122-inches long! The final step in piecing the top together is adding on smaller applique cocoa leaves to create borders around the...

Racetrack Quilt {WiP}

I like to walk. I tried to get into running, and for almost 5 years I forced myself to run 20-30 miles a month. It was agony and torture. When I realized that I am a walker and not a runner, things really turned around. I love going for walks in the evenings with my husband. The quiet companionship of...

Groovy Scrap Quilt

As I mentioned in my post last Friday (Scrap Quilt Finished Flimsy) I still had a lot of 3-inch squares left over from Tessellated Leaves, even after piecing together a scrap quilt from its leftovers! I took about an hour on Tuesday morning to see what I could make with the remaining squares. I had initially hoped that I had enough...

WiP Wednesday {12-17-2014}

Some days you wake up with a plan, only to find that life has a much better one in store for you. Yesterday, I woke up with one idea for how my day would progress, but I quickly found that I was called in a different direction. In case you missed it, Molli Sparkles is organizing the creating of quilts...

Tessellated Leaves – Two Thirds {WiP}

I have just finished piecing 6 of the 9 rows that make up the main body of Tessellated Leaves, bringing the progress up to two-thirds of the way complete. I just love how the colors are blending together. I selected 36 fabrics for this quilt, and I am done using 20 of them. It feels great to be able to clear...

Tessellated Leaves – One Third {WiP}

I have pieced one third of the Tessellated Leaves quilt top (3 rows). The rows went together very nicely, and I have only had to go back and replace one mis-made HST along the way so far. I taped the completed third up as high on my wall as I could reach (standing on my kitchen chairs), and I...

WiP Wednesday {10/15/2014}

This week I have an update for 4 different projects. How is that for multi-tasking? Let me tell you, it is kind of over whelming for me... but at the same time it is fun and gratifying to see progress (even small progress) on each project. 1. Cocoa Leaf Drum Lamp Inspired Queen Sized Quilt Things have progressed along quite nicely...

Lots of WiPs

I definitely think of myself as a one project at a time kind of person, and I have found myself with many more projects than I am used to at one time at the moment. Today I want to introduce you to 2 more queen sized quilt projects that I have taken on. The goal is to have both of these...

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...

Three Flocks {Flimsy Finish}

I am super pleased with how my twin sized (65" wide by 88" long) Three Flocks (by Brigit Gail) quilt top has finished out! You can read more about the quilt top in my original Three Flocks {WiP} post from last week. Today, I am just going to let you scroll through my set of photos from the quilt piecing process....

Three Flocks {WiP}

Just as I was finishing up Orange Crush at the beginning of the week, I started wondering what I would be working on next. Usually I have a plan, or some kind of inspiration, or a commission, or *some* seed of an idea about what project I want to work on next, but even with some fabric bundles bought...

Space Age Tumbling Blocks {WiP Wednesday}

I completed the quilt top for Space Age Tumbling Blocks on Tuesday morning, and I love how similar the concept image created in EQ5 is to the actual quilt top. Including fabric prep, the quilt top took me 9.5 hours to get to this point, and pre-quilting, it measures 62" across by 75" down. The backing went together very quickly...

Dragon Quilt {WiP}

I went to my stash this weekend and pulled up a fabulously fun print that my mother-in-law found for me at a yard sale a few years ago. It is about 1.25 yards of fabric, and the print is so fun that I didn't want to really cut into it. I quickly decided it would be the "backing" for...
