Meadow Mist Midnight Mystery Quilt Finish!

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

It’s done! I completed the Meadow Mist Midnight Mystery Quilt! Doing this quilt was such a great experience. Here’s why: I got to try so many new techniques and the instructions were very clear for each of them so I feel like I learned so much. This was my first time for many common quilting […]

Murder Mystery Quilt!

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

I recently joined up with another mystery quilt: Murder Mystery Quilt. I had so much fun with Midnight Mystery Quilt (finish post coming soon!) that I was game to try another one. This one is super cool and totally up my alley. Not only are you doing a mystery quilt, but you’re also solving a […]

Neon Quilt Finish

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

I finally finished my neon quilt which I started so long ago! I actually finished it in 2015 but I didn’t have a chance to take photos of it until 2016. I’m really super happy with how it turned out. I used a 15 piece layer cake from Riley Blake in Neon Basics and a […]

Longarm Quilted One Hour Baskets

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Things have been busy around here with the holidays. It seems like everyone tries to cram everything in at the end of the year. I love the parties and get togethers, but it also makes it hard to find time for other things. I’ve been doing things, but just haven’t found time to post. Also, […]

Midnight Mystery Quilt — November

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Check it out — I’m actually caught up! Just in time to buy more fabric at Black Friday sales 😉 For November we were really just putting together the pieces that we’d already made, namely the square in squares and the flying geese. We also made a couple of half square triangles used for the […]

Midnight Mystery Quilt — October

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

I’ve now completed October’s instructions which means if I can get November’s instructions done in the next 3 weeks, I’ll be all caught up! This month was courthouse steps. Big ones. They ended up 19” by 19”. But they were nice and relaxing to make and there were only 9 to make so it wasn’t […]

Midnight Mystery Quilt — September

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Moving right along with catching up on my Midnight Mystery Quilt-a-long by Meadow Mist Designs, I’ve now done September. For this month, we were supposed to make square-in-square blocks. Another first for me! One of the things I love about this mystery quilt is that I’m getting so much experience doing some of the more basic […]

Sunday Stash: Anna Maria Horner’s Loominous

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

A little bit of stash candy for today.  Above is a fat quarter bundle of Loominous from Anna Maria Horner which I got from Massdrop.  I had been eyeing the Loominous line ever since I heard about it. They’re yarn dyed as opposed to printed like most quilting fabric. The fat quarter bundle seemed like […]

Pinky minky quilt for a lovely lady

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

This little blanket was being sent off to a lovely little lady who just came into the world. I’m hoping it will keep her warm and cozy — at least until her real quilt gets to her. I had scheduled some rental time on the longarm to stitch up a quilt for Miss Lily. Unfortunately […]

Rainbow Sampler Quilt

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

The previous time I was at the longarm quilter, I had a whole day because of a long weekend. So I brought about a yard of wide back fabric. You may remember this gray fabric from the backing for my Bright Squares Quilt. I marked out borders and 7 sections — one for each color […]
