A quilt top for mom

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

A while ago (and by a while I mean like 10 years ago), my mom made a quilt top. This quilt top languished in her fabric vault until about a year or two ago when I started doing longarm quilting. When I was home last time, I told her she just needed to get it […]

Jennifer Paganelli Good Company Quilt

Published by under Quilting

This was a quilt which I did for fun because I loved the fabric. I actually finished it last year but only got around to posting pictures now because I thought it might be a gift and didn’t want to ruin the surprise. But it has long since found it’s happy home, so I’m free […]

do. Good Stitches

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

I get a lot of joy out of quilting and sewing, but most of the sewing that I do would be classified as “selfish sewing.” It’s sewing that I do for me because I want to. I don’t feel too bad about this because I work hard at my job and sewing is one of […]

More Halloween Fun

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Some more decoration for Halloween. I worked on a Halloween quilt this year (more details on that in another post). And using the leftover fabric, I decided to make a little festive table decoration. The overall design was pretty simple. Just laid out the squares and sewed them together. After doing so, it wasn’t quite […]

Murder Mystery Quilt – April and May

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

So, I’m a tad behind in posting. As usual, getting pictures from my camera to my blog always takes longer than expected. Here’s the block from Chapter 4 for April. For this one, we did reverse appliqué. Above is after I based the green pieces to the back using quilt basting spray. I also starched […]

Mighty Lucky Quilting Club – February

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

For February for Mighty Lucky Quilting Club, the focus was on improv quilting and “less is more.” I hadn’t really done improv quilting before, so this was a fun exercise, although I’m not sure it’s really something I’ll spend much time doing in the future. First, I picked out some fabrics. The green is my […]

Earlier this week we got the next chapter — and the next block — in the murder mystery quilt. Grabbed some scraps and whipped it up pretty quickly. It’s so fun to see the story unfolding!
