Six Week Countdown

By |November 10th, 2014|Swap, work in progress|4 Comments

Are you making gifts for the holidays? There’s a mere six weeks to get everything done!

I always make something personal for my kids’ teachers, and my oldest has a knack for asking me to make gifts for friends at the 11th hour. My solution is to keep a collection of great ideas on hand to select […]

Tone It Down – Quilt Top

By |March 3rd, 2014|quilt-along, Swap, work in progress|16 Comments

I was looking through my blog over the weekend, and realized that I never shared my finished quilt top for the #apqquiltalong project! I had a few little deadlines pop up on me and I folded up the top before I got it posted here – sorry! My quilt measures 75″ x 93″ – which […]

The best part of swapping online, is the surprise in the mail!  I love the mini that Jenn made for me!

Special prints, adorable maverik stars, and fabulous quilting.  What more could a girl want!?

Jenn also included an adorable mug rug, and needle card – I’m scouting out the perfect spots for each of these special […]

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 […]

Mini Quilt in Progress

By |March 14th, 2012|Swap, work in progress|13 Comments

Last week I shared a photo of my cut pieces, and left you hanging…sorry about that!  I did post a few photos via Instagram (I’m amyscreativeside) and I’m really liking where the quilt is headed.

I’ve been on a flying geese kick lately, and the inspiration given, by my secret partner, lent itself to the stacking […]

I spent my evening with these little piles yesterday.  I signed myself up for a private flickr swap, and let my ideas stew for a while, but now I’m in action mode! 

I’ll share more soon!

Pillow Talk Swap :: Outbound

By |October 25th, 2011|finished project, Swap|15 Comments

Here’s what I had fun working on over the weekend –

Did I mention that fall is nearly over here in the mountains?  The trees are looking bear, and there is a definite chill in the air; as in I have already scraped my windshield a few times!

The fabrics include a wide variety of designer cottons, […]

This is the first round I’ve managed to participate in the Pillow Talk Swap, and I’m excited to be involved.  To be perfectly honest, I haven’t even started, and barely checked in on the group as I wrote this post, BUT there are people already shipping their covers!  I need to get it together…thank goodness […]

On Friday, I received some fun mail – remember the pouch I made?  This is the pouch, that my partner made for […]
