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 […]

Baby boy flannel quilt

Published by under Quilting

Despite not posting for the last . . . oh, 3 months, I have been actually been doing stuff. There’s been sewing and traveling and quilting and preserving and puzzling and dancing and probably more. Which is why there haven’t been posts. But trying to catch up on stuff now. Someday I’ll get this whole […]

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, […]

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 […]

From Norway With Love Jelly Roll Race

First up is small quilt using a jelly roll from the line From Norway With Love by Riley Blake. The […]

Bright Squares Quilt

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

This was a fast and fun quilt. Basically it consisted of taking a layer cake of Kona cotton solids (the classics in this case), randomizing them by throwing them in a big pile and then laying them out in a 6×7 grid. Yes, that simple. I wanted something to practice my longarm that would still […]

Map quilt x 2

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

When I got certified at the first longarm place, a year or two ago, the first thing I did was some practice quilts. I had bought two yards of this map fabric and made each one into a practice quilt. I did similar quilting on each but at different scales. The first one was done […]

Crazy 9 Patch Quilt

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Over this holiday weekend, I’ve been trying to finish up some quilts that I’ve had laying around. Quilts take up a surprising amount of space when they haven’t been finished. Extra fabric hanging off. Not really folded. All sorts of mess. I have a few that are just waiting for binding. Most of these right […]

A flower quilt for my grandmother

Published by under Quilting

Remember I told you I’d show you what I made out of the extra apron fabric? Well, here it is — a quilt for my grandmother. Look at my mom’s cute little toes sticking out as she models this for me 🙂 This probably the scrappiest quilt that I’ve made to date. Everything is scraps from […]
