Almost a Posie Patch, and Winners!

By |March 14th, 2011|work in progress|9 Comments

Hi there!  I hope you had a good weekend!  Mine was productive and fun…I cut 2 quilts, pieced another top, and made these blocks up.  I had cut one last weekend, and hadn’t had the chance to sit and sew all week.  I’ll show you that one after I have a chance to press and […]

Charmed Park Quilt Top

By |March 8th, 2011|work in progress|23 Comments

I found some Central Park charm packs for a steal a while back, and bought three!  When I got around to using them, I couldn’t remember what my original plan had been (gasp!) but they were sitting next to a pile of solids, and they had to be put together.

I cut one of the charm […]

A Notion or Two – Quilt Top

By |February 15th, 2011|a Notion or Two, work in progress|7 Comments

Over the weekend, I pulled out the blocks from the bee I was in called “A Notion or Two” in 2009, and got to work!  I made the block that I needed to finish the group, and got busy.  This is a  departure from my usual fabric choices, but I love it!  I had designed/made […]

Nature Walk Quilt

Remember the organic fabrics I received a while back?  I had been staring at them, pawing them, waiting for the moment my plan formulated!  Last week I figured it out, I had a couple yards of bella – weathered teak, and decided to incorporate it to make a throw size quilt.  I cut the blocks out, […]

SewConnected Quilt Top

By |January 31st, 2011|work in progress|12 Comments

The blocks for this quilt were made by my friends in the SewConnected group.  We swapped fabric and blocks in 2009, and I just managed to sew my blocks up into a top!

I like it right now, and I hope to really love it once I have it quilt and bound.  Working with a collaborative […]

Two More Days!

Happy Monday friends!  My girls have just two days of school this week, then we are taking a trip to see family for the holidays!  The kids are so excited, and I think my parents are even more excited!

I spent the weekend finishing up my sewing projects for gift giving, and doing laundry.  Good thing […]

Quilted Table Runners in Progress

By |December 16th, 2010|work in progress|6 Comments

They are not quilted yet, however, I’m ready to baste and quilt them all!

I have my backing fabrics selected, and I pulled threads too.  That always seems like the hardest part – getting all the details together.  Once I have those worked out it is easy to move forward when I have the chance.

I’m still […]

2 1/2″ Half Square Triangle Units.

Cut with my Go! Cutter they are practically perfect!  Really any error is my own.  Not drawing the line down the center and having to cut saves a a lot of time!  It’s still a lot of pieces – hopefully I can get them sewn together today!

My deadline is Christmas […]

Beautiful Binding!

Friday I got word that a precious and much anticipated new baby arrived!  This is the baby that I have been working on a commission quilt for.  To complete the top, I just needed to know her birthday…I embroidered her name and birth date in one corner.

Saturday, I found the right thread, and basted the […]

Table Runner Tops!

By |December 3rd, 2010|work in progress|11 Comments

A little time here and there, over the course of the week, and…four table runner tops are complete!

Origins fabric, I love how fabric selections can make such a change!

Freebird fabric, in simple, random strips.  I actually enlisted Ella’s help, my 10 year old, to cut random lengths from my strips.

I’m also linking up for Sew […]

Project Updates

By |December 2nd, 2010|Charity, work in progress|6 Comments

Hi there!  I’ve been working here and there on my table runners.  My favorite thing right now is covering a wood cutting board with a towel so I can watch TV with Joe and iron at the same time.  Works great!

After pressing seams last night, I got the girls to school this morning and came home […]

Work in Progress

There’s six of them here.

And “in progress” only if you count having them cut!  I’m hoping to sit down and sew for an hour today… wish me luck!


PS – I’ll be back soon to announce a couple winners!
