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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

Experiments in quilting: walking foot

Published by under Quilting,Sewing

Now that the weather is getting nicer, I wanted some placemats for when we eat outside. I think I actually picked up these two fat quarters a while ago, but I liked the look of them because they reminded me of picnic table tablecloths. My intention even then though was to use them to practice […]
