Actually, I’d rather have housework magic, like the broom in Fantasia. But I did manage to get the fourth corner quilted on my tulip applique quilt. The feathers have flattened it out which is why I plan to do something looser on the rest of the border. Trust me, the quilting will look better than […]

Late last night, I scrunched the laptop out of the way again and finished the webbing of my Frozen Grassy Creek top. While I was stitching, I received an email from Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs that I had won three patterns by participating in the Morewood Mystery quilt parade. My twin size top is […]

I know it doesn’t look that much different,but this is the third corner of ny tulip applique quilt which means just one more. I don’t want to overquilt this, so the rest of the border will get a loopy flower meander. I think that will make the feathers more interesting than doing the whole border. […]

But thankfully no rain in the forecast. As I was walking back from my 6 am walk this morning, the only traffic the waste collection team, I reminded myself how fortunate I am to live in a town where I can go for a morning walk safely. (It’ll be even better when the sun is […]

Hello! I’m going to try to post every day this week to share what I’m working on. Yesterday I started the quilting on my niece’s Tulip Applique quilt. The top had been made by someone else, and I’m not too confident in some of the stitching, so I plan to quilt fairly densely. I started […]

At least the top is done. To make it twin size, I added a top and bottom border (deliberately sized larger than in the body) of the arrow and diamond design. I would like to get this quilted before fall. Linking up to the quilt parade at Meadow Mist Designs.

I am great at starting projects.  This quarter, I am striving to be great at finishing projects.  On my table today:  Kinship baby quilt for burying threads, January bag of the month needs the strap, Beach Ball baby quilt for basting followed by quilting, February bag on the month (oops, that’s a new project!), Frolic […]

We all have done it–walked out of the shop (or opened the squishy envelope at home)–only to put that gorgeous unique fabric on the shelf and not use it. The large motifs of some quilting fabric work for backing or borders–but wait, also for bags! So when I decided to actually make this month’s #bagomc […]

It’s a truth, that I do most of my quilting (as opposed to piecing) in the winter. I started quilting this one last winter, only to put it aside for other projects after we went into Covid lockdown. For a change, I started with the background, and I was very happy with the cone of […]

Here we are again, locked down due to the virus-that-must-not-be-named–this time, when I was planning to stay home anyway for the holidays. I’ll be logging in on Monday to check in on the 3 people who are also working, and putting together a proposal for a meeting I have after New Year’s. Leaving lots of […]
