Cosmic Burst Pillow

By |March 22nd, 2012|finished project, finished quilt|21 Comments

I stayed up a little bit later than I should have last night, but I really wanted to get this pillow finished up!  I’ve had a busy week of computer work, and sometimes sewing late into the night is the perfect way to wake up my creativity.  Pretty sure some of you can relate to […]

Flying Geese Mini Quilt

By |March 15th, 2012|finished quilt, Swap|16 Comments

I’m late in posting today, I had to wash my mini, and bring out all the texture!

Love those crinkles!

All the geese are pretty close to perfect, and the differing sizes were a fun puzzle to put together.

I think my favorite part is the binding!  I had to stop myself from adding it to the quilt […]

Graduation Workshop and Finished Quilt!

By |November 29th, 2011|craftsy, finished quilt, Modern Basics|34 Comments

Graduation is one of the quilts from Modern Basics – I love the proportions of it, and the LACK of blocks.  It makes for a fast quilt, and great for a beginner!

I re-made Graduation, and took lots of pictures to offer it as a workshop over at Craftsy.com.

Are you familiar with Craftsy yet?  They have […]

I’ve been dying to share this quilt with all of you, but was asked to keep images off-line until the line is/was released.  Yay – I can finally share!

I was contacted by Blend Fabrics last month, and after a series of emails, fabric landed on my doorstep for a quilt for their booth at Market.

Pocket Pixies Baby Quilt

By |August 30th, 2011|embroidery, finished quilt|13 Comments

A quick finish for a sweet new baby!

I actually haven’t met her, but I assume she’s sweet, she’s a baby girl!

I added her name and birthday in embroidery, and couldn’t resist tracing the fabric in thread.

I bound it by machine, so it can be used and washed again and again.  And generally had fun working […]

I found a sunny day at last, and had an hour to spare outside with my quilts!

All 14 of them is a lot to carry, and get hung, but I’m so glad that I did.

Did you notice the new header?

This is a picture heavy post!  I thought I would share the name and a detail […]
