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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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!

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 […]

We’re almost there! I lost some ground during the holidays, but I’m back on to it. This month I finished up December which was making the big blocks that will be joined to make the final top. Sorry for the iffy quality of the first photo. I realized after I was downloading the photos to […]

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, […]
