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 […]

Twisted Log Cabin – from Quilt in a Day

By |February 19th, 2014|review, work in progress|12 Comments

I was contacted by the Quilt in a Day office to see if I would be willing to try out a new ruler that Elenor Burns has produced. I can’t resist a new gadget, and said of course! I collected jelly rolls to use, since it is super jelly roll friendly, and had a blast […]

Don’t freak out…

By |February 14th, 2014|work in progress|3 Comments

If you’ve listened to the most recent Quiltcast, you know that I had a little bit of a freak out moment last week! I looked at my calendar of deadlines, and realized that I had a number of little projects to get finished, and a couple secret projects to start. So I spent three days […]

Please excuse my absence. . .

By |January 29th, 2014|Me, Pillow Collective, work in progress|9 Comments

I’ve come down with a cold, and there’s no one to blame but myself! I’m finally starting to feel like myself again, but have zero energy.

Instead I’ve caught up on some email, and sat on the couch with a pretty pile of fabric.

I have a pillow for my Pillow Collective tutorial, all planned out, and […]

My APQ Quilt-Along Progress

By |January 20th, 2014|quilt-along, work in progress|8 Comments

Last week I shared my Quilt-along progress, and I’m excited to have even more progress to share today!

I sewed up the block centers – and love the way the colors are coming together, the varied blues, with a touch of green is just right!

I also did some strip-piecing, and trimmed them up for four-patches –

Sewing […]

My Relaxing Weekend

By |January 13th, 2014|work in progress|10 Comments

I turned in my book on Friday, feeling happy and excited about all the work. Yay! After spending most of the last month at home, working,  I requested dinner and a movie out with the family, so we headed out to see Frozen and had a nice dinner in Park City, together. We had a […]

Happenings

By |December 16th, 2013|work in progress|8 Comments

Last week, I finished quilting on 3 quilts! Two are twin sized, and another queen sized – what was I thinking! Anyway, I spent Friday preparing bindings and attaching them, then Saturday and Sunday stitching. I have finished bindings by machine, and I’m sure I will continue to do so on some occasions, but I […]

Head Down to the Finish Line

By |November 25th, 2013|accuquilt, work in progress|8 Comments

The hard part about writing a book, is not being able to share the quilts I’m really excited to be making! Over the last month, I’ve completed tops for 9 of the 10 projects in my next book, but I saved the most laborious for last. I wanted to be able to focus, and not […]

Hi friends! Since wrapping up Blogger’s Quilt Festival, I’ve been sewing non-stop. I have a book due in January, and with the holidays nearly here, I’m rushing to finish as much as I can now! Like, all of the piecing.

The way I tend to work, takes over the kitchen table, and I would love to be […]

Beginnings

By |October 14th, 2013|crochet, work in progress|5 Comments

With fall setting in here, I’ve got lots of little projects that I want to get to, along with the things I have to get to, before the holidays. I’ve saved a pile of wovens, and linen fabrics for napkins, that I still haven’t touched, but I have started a few other things!

Last week I […]

This & That

By |October 8th, 2013|In the Kitchen, work in progress|9 Comments

I’m working on a little of this, and a little of that lately. Friends at AdornIt asked for a quilt (in a hurry) with these sweet prints, and thankfully I had just the project in my files already! I cut it out in an hour, yesterday, and look forward to sewing it up this week.

Last […]

Weekend Sewing

By |September 30th, 2013|work in progress|8 Comments

As you might recall, I’m working on my next book. I’ve spent time over the weekend organizing my thoughts, and selecting fabrics that I would like to use for each of the projects. I always try to work out a balance of colors and styles in the fabric choices, so that it is widely appealing […]
