Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Is there anyone working on one. I have started to make one. I am adding a new color it is round because it is a hexagon will not be square. Everyone keeps asking how big will it be,I say I don't know. I started it because my husband will wine…Continue
First the tip. I frequently attend fairs where one of the freebies given is the spritz type of hand sanitizer. Hating to throw away anything usable, I tried cleaning out one of the bottles and using it as a spritzer for ironing small pieces of…Continue
These are three authors that I have also enjoyed reading. All three write mysteries around quilting or knitting themes. Easy reads, and good story lines. I prefer not to read books with profanities in them, so these to me are pretty decent…Continue
I have been searching for "little Brown Bird' by Margaret Dacherty for months now. The book and CD are either, SOLD OUT or NO LONGER IN PRINT. Does anyone have a copy of both they would be willing to sell me? When I saw this quilt at the national…Continue

I have been sewing quilt tops since about 1988 because my Grandmother had been a quilter, and at the time I thought it would be nice to make one quilt and follow in her footsteps - foolish, foolhardy and I should have known better.

So presently and at last count, I have 17 UFOs. Yikes! I need to…Continue
I NEED to make a scrappy quilt. Why do I have so much fabric that I don't know what to do with?? I find so many patterns I want to try and I check out my fabric stash and decide I don't have what I need to make that quilt top. So then I just putz around and get nothing truly accomplished. Therefore, my next project is going to be a scrappy quilt. Just cut up a lot of unused fabric and sew it together and hope for the best!!! Well, no, I suppose I should have some sort of plan, or…Continue
I am new to this blogging thing, and I so now I will try to add some pictures of some of my quilted projects. Most are unfinished, some only needing a sleeve to be added to the back, others need the binding sewn down. This quilt is not quite finished (binding), and as you can see it is a scrappy quilt. My kindred group and I made a flower pot quilt, and they all gave me the left over scraps. This is the quilt with the left overs. I added some of my own fabric, and I tried to add a machine…Continue
