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 […]

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

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!

Murder Mystery Quilt!

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

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 […]
