My First Big Quilt – Easy Street

Way back in 2012, before I had a blog, I was busy reading blogs about quilting and sewing, and one person who I followed then (and now) is Bonnie Hunter. Bonnie is a scrappy quilt lover and designer, and a prolific blogger, and runs a free mystery quilt every year (usually American Thanksgiving to New […]

Brought to you by the letter T

T is for triangle. As in the Triangle QAL with Paula at The Sassy Quilter (and BTW she has a giveaway running until April 27). I must say, piecing this quilt is quite a challenge. I managed to put together one strip wrong, by rotating the diamonds the wrong way. Fortunately with the solids it […]

FNSI report for April 19

The online sewing community is so wonderful to be a part of, to know that yesterday, I was sewing together with makers from around the globe.  As I was sewing madly last night, I was tagging #fridaynightsewalong and #fnsi on instagram, so you can go look there for more inspiration and fun photos. Easy Street […]

Deja Vu – Finish A Long Goals for Q2

April, the month of warm temperatures and temptations away from the ball and chain of the sewing machine.  Just kidding.  Fortunately this spring has been slow to start, but I soon will add gardening to my leisure time which will reduce sewing time. I only finished one of my 5 projects from last quarter, so […]

Triangles in the Spring

A quick visit to y’all, today, to let you know that I have been sewing hard all week. So much busyness converging, I love it. Triangle QAL with the Sassy Quilter–triangles all cut and ready–I only cut 158, I want to make a baby quilt, maybe about 40″ x 50″. I cut these using my […]

Ready, set, quilt!

I am so glad that it’s the last day of March.  It means that spring, and flowers, and warm temperatures are almost here.  But on the other hand, it means that my Q1 goals for the Finish-A-Long must be almost completed.  Wishful thinking. But seriously, knowing that I set this goal for myself has (mostly) […]

Decisions, decisions

On Wednesday, I happily ironed, starched, and cut the border pieces for my Easy Street quilt. I originally hadn’t planned on a border at all (it is 63″ x 85″ without a border, so this works for the twin size I wanted) but I realized that I might get wonky edges during quilting, since they’re […]

Easy Street progress

Just popping in to say hi!  I’ve been working away on my Easy Street quilt top, and trying not to get distracted by new blocks in the Canadians Quilt {bee} and Sugar Block Club. I have finished the setting triangles and started sewing the blocks together since this picture, but I need to make the […]

Q1 goals weigh-in

Or perhaps we should call it a meeting of Startitus-Anonymous. Like many of you, I have been guilty of starting too many projects, lured by the pretty fabric and fun Linky parties. So on my to-do list for this year is finishing up some current projects. Let me start by stating I have fallen slightly […]
