Catching Up!

Posted on June 7th, by Amy in Baby Lock, My kids, quilt-along. 7 comments

Hey! It’s been too long :)  Blogger’s Quilt Festival was a huge success – thank you to everyone that entered quilts and shared their stories.  It means so much to learn about you, and how you create! The details are all wrapped up, for now, and I’ve got a few pictures to share, along with current happenings.


With the end of the school year, there were lots of field trips! I went with Owen to the zoo, and had a blast, while making sure that my five charges stayed together too! The local zoo is going through some major renovations, and had Lego exhibits set up as well.  The boys were particularly taken with the polar bear, they kept asking about how many pieces…it was a great day, and a major milestone, as my baby is done with Kindergarten, and really growing up! I’m looking forward to less trips to school next year, but know that I will miss our time at home together too.

Pin 'N Stow -

Upon returning from Market, I was excited and inspired to quilt even more with my Crown Jewel! I also tried out my new Pin ‘N Stow – which was a huge improvement to the tin of pins I had been walking back and forth to (or putting them in my mouth!) while loading the quilt.

Ruler Work -

This is my Simple Sampler quilt top from 2010! I can’t believe how long it has taken me to finish – this one! I knew it needed something custom, and decided that this would be my first quilt to work with rulers on the long arm.  I had fun trying a variety of things in each of the blocks!

Ruler Work -

Nothing is perfect ::)  but I’m loving quilting, so much!

Dancing Stars Segments -

I just finished and trimmed the remaining segments for my Dancing Stars blocks. I’m hoping to finish the blocks today, and work on the top soon!

What have you been working on this week?

More soon -xo- Amy

  1. Lovely quilting. How long did it take to arrange those block segments? Fabulous, lovely eye candy!
    And your little kindergardener – awww!

  2. Legoland scupture are such fun, a lovely treat for a school outing. I too took the big leap this year and got a longarm machine. Mine is an Innova. I love love love my dream machine. It is a whole new set of skills to learn but wow the possibilities to expand in quilting are amazning. I’m looking forward to seeing your dancing stars quilt. It will be awesome.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  3. Looks great. I’m soon able to try using my new-to-me long arm. It has been patiently waiting while I finish this year’s 4 teacher quilts. I’d love to hear what rulers and other such tools you’ve been using. There are so many options out there that it is hard to figure out which ones to get.
